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.


If you’re a long-time reader of this site, you’ll recognize the name ERAS. I’ve written about him a couple of times, and as you can tell, I’m a big fan of his electronic-soundscapes.

Below is the video for “Angels,” a track off his upcoming (and highly anticipated over here) full-length album Purified.  Featuring Grace Hall (of Skin Town) on vocals, “Angels” is a layering of synths over brief drum beats. One word to describe it would be, hypnotic. It’s already making its way onto my Favorite Tracks of 2016 List. Check it out.

Purified is out May 27 via Track Number Records.

Beth Orton

Beth Orton is back with a new album. It’s called Kidsticks, and will be out May 27 via Anti-. The album was co-produced by Orton and Andrew Hung of Fuck Buttons, with mixing being handled by David Wrench. Below is, “Moon,” the lead-single off the album.
