Short Post

Last year, Kendrick Lamar and SZA released albums that ended up on many Best Of/Favorite Albums of 2017 lists; for Kendrick that was his album DAMN, and for SZA that was her album Ctrl. Both were solid from beginning to end and were a force to be reckoned with in their respective genres. Earlier today, the duo dropped a collaboration in the form of “All the Stars,” a song off the upcoming Marvel movie, Black Panther. While the partnership doesn’t match the ferocity of their respective albums, it does still show what talents the two of them are, despite the tame outcome.

The first day of the New Year and the Music Festival Season is already visible on the horizon. Goldenvoice‘s Arroyo Seco Weekend, which saw its debut last year, has announced its dates for this year’s edition. The two-day fest which takes place in Brookside at the Rose Bowl will take place on June 23 and 24. Passes for the fest, and the actual line-up will more than likely pop up a couple of weeks after Goldenvoice reveals the line-up for that other fest of theirs in the coming days. You know which one. Yep. That one.

There you have it. In alphabetical order, twenty-five records that have been soundtracking my days over here at Something For All of Us. This list is not at all final. I’m sure in the upcoming months some will be added, and some will fall by the wayside.  What have you been listening to lately? Email me your lists. I’m genuinely curious.
