It was apparent when she jumped on the mic to express her emotions, exactly how heavy his death…

Raekwon: Only Built 4 Cuban Linx

In 1995, critics saw in Only Built 4 Cuban Linx the same things that fans of the record celebrated. It invented “mafioso rap” and glorified mass criminality; its songs were paeans to those hardworking souls ducking RICO charges. The album was a blueprint for narrative in gangsta rap albums. It profoundly influenced JAY-Z, Nas, and…

Hatchie: Sugar & Spice EP

New artists don’t get much time to carve out an identity anymore. So it’s either fortunate or canny that Harriette Pilbeam—an Australian bassist and singer-songwriter who records as Hatchie—opens Sugar & Spice with a song that captures her aesthetic even before the vocals kick in. Like most of the record, “Sure” is a wide-eyed appeal…

DJDS: Big Wave More Fire

Last year, Los Angeles electronic duo DJDS shared a sprawling playlist titled “BIG WAVE MORE FIRE,” which they described as a “soundtrack to a TV show that doesn’t exist.” The semi-regularly updated, genre-agnostic collection of songs highlights Jerome LOL and Samo Sound Boy’s curatorial abilities, imagining a pool party where Arthur Russell rubs shoulders with…

Shalamar: Uptown Festival / Disco Gardens / Big Fun

The constant churn of an underground sound leads to mainstream success leads to brazen attempts to cash out. For every genre-shattering release, there are thousands of way-more-terrible versions of that release, all blatantly attempting to strike gold. In the late ’70s, disco’s made the ascent from the R&B-meets-psychedelic sound found in black, Italian, Latino and…
