Tortoise has been rocking since seeing them live. Such a great experience. Been listening to chic corea, solange new album serengeti new album and new quelle Chris singles as of late. The Bahamas album from last year too. But quelle Chris is truly bringing the heat. In reference to adding the bass line to to his newest single Obamacare that it was like a ms vanjie exit to the production of the song. Perfect.
It’s been all Cass McCombs and Beirut lately. Some yatch rock playlists too.
Should remember Anderson paak and 21 savage had ok albums last year.
Charles Bradley from last year still rockin. This year has been parquet courts, empress of women is a word, lando chill, Aesop rock, James Blake, and toro y moi.
