Rico Nasty, Las Ruinas
An artist at the vanguard of rap's rock star revolution, Rico Nasty keeps the bare-knuckle vibe alive on her sophomore studio album Las Ruinas. The project drops after the previously announced project Rx was shelved, and was preceded by the singles "Black Punk," "Intrusive," "Skullflower," and "Blow Me."
Lil Uzi Vert, Red & White EP
Lil Uzi Vert is still at work on his long-awaited full-length project P!INK. To tide fans over, he's digging into his vast archive of unreleased songs – some of which were first previewed several years ago – for the Red & White EP, a SoundCloud exclusive for now. Producers include Brandon Finessin, Oogie Mane, Mustard, and fan favorite Maaly Raw.
Mozzy, Survivor's Guilt
Cuco, Fantasy Gateway
Mexican-American artist Cuco has been releasing music since 2016 and has carved a unique lane in modern indie-pop with his progressive yet classically indebted pop songwriting. He gets more psychedelic on Fantasy Gateway, his sophomore album (Fun fact: in 2018 he performed at the FADER Fort and interviewed Mozzy, who also releases an album today).
The Koreatown Oddity, ISTHISFORREAL?
"Misophonia Love," the lead single from Dominique Purdy's newest album as The Koreatown Oddity, is one of 2022's most hilarious hip-hop songs with a '90s funk groove too artfully crafted for joke-rap. He brings that same humor and a conversational reflection to his new project ISTHISFORREAL?.
Beach Bunny, Emotional Creature
Lili Trifilio's pop group found massive success thanks to TikTok virality, but they're not eager to stay in any niche. For their second album, Trifilio says that growth was a priority. "Humans are emotional creatures and I wanted to capture that with this album in order to show how complex, sometimes tragic, and mostly wonderful the human experience can be.”
