Nilüfer Yanya, PAINLESS
The London rock artist has had a vibrant run of singles from her sophomore project, out today. PAINLESS features "stabilise," "midnight sun," "anotherlife," and "the dealer." “It's a record about emotion,” Yanya said in a press release. “I think it's more open about that in a way that [her debut project] Miss Universe wasn't because there's so many cloaks and sleeves with the concept I built around it.”
For all the attention currently on Detroit's rap scene, there's not another artist quite like BabyTron. His flow is muscular with an undeniably youthful tenor, and he's not afraid to throw in some outrageously funny lines here and there. I guess that's what you get from a member of a crew called "ShittyBoyz." MegaTron sports 23 new tracks including "King of the Galaxy."
King Von, What It Means to Be King
What It Means To Be King is the first posthumous album from Chicago rapper King Von since he was shot and killed in November 2020. The superstar-in-the-making enlists a roster of guests worth his tragically abbreviated potential, including 21 Savage, G Herbo, Fivio Foreign, and Moneybagg Yo.
The Weather Station, How Is It That I Should Look at the Stars
Tamara Lindeman's new project as The Weather Station arrives a year after her project Ignorance, and contains songs written during the sessions for that album. "I imagined it not as a followup to Ignorance, but rather as a companion piece; the moon to its sun,” she said in a press statement.
Kojey Radical, Reason To Smile
Reason To Smile is billed as Kojey Radical's first full-length album despite releasing four stacked EPs since 2016, Dear Daisy, 23Winters, In Gods Body and Cashmere Tears. The latest from the prismatic London artist features Kelis, Rexx Life Raj, Tiana Major9, and more.
Maylee Todd, Maloo
The Canadian pop songwriter's serenely groovy new album is inspired by virtual reality and the internet's original utopic ideals. “Often we place too much emphasis on status, wealth, and clout on social media,” Todd said in a press statement. “Instead, what if we find ways to share our dreams and goals for ourselves and society?" It's never too late to try!
