Friday Streams -- April 21, 2017

Leave a Comment

After a hiatus last week, Friday Streams is back. And before you go wondering where were we to join in the nearly universal call to go listen to DAMN., let me just say that we got to check out The Magnetic Fields' 50 Song Memoir, which is a treat and unique experience. Should they be coming to your neck of the woods, check it out.

New Releases
A consistently rewarding group, Woods has long been one of our faves here for their mix of psych and folk.

Dilla died in 2006, but his posthumous output has been substantial. Motor City is a beat tape featuring two other legends, Busta Rhymes & Q-Tip.

Another fave of the blog is TJO, whose ethereal compositions, laid the groundwork for the recent successes of artists like Julia Holter and Grouper.

Off-the-radar
Adrian Younge - Something About April II
Younge was made famous for his work with Ghostface Killah and when he's not composing films, or creating albums, he's working as an entertainment law professor. This is the sequel to Something About April. Both records are beautiful throwbacks to 70s R&B with lush orchestration and incredible vocalists. Something About April II features, for example, Laetitia Sadier of Stereolab.
