I love searching out new music. June felt like a bit of a slow month in that regard but I still found plenty to share. Here are my favorite album discoveries from the past month.
Sault – AIR
As a group known to me for their funky and soulful sounds, this lush classical album was totally confusing for me at first. This month, it hit me though and I love it. An amazing soundtrack for my morning.
Foals – Life Is Yours
This album is full-on energy and feel-good vibes. A big departure from their previous work. Perfect for the summer.
Black Coffee – Subconsciously
My coworker turned me on to this. I had heard a few tracks on different compilations but never the whole album from this afrobeat EDM artist. Perfect nighttime album.
Pam Amsterdam and Damu the Fudgemunk – EAT
An indie hip-hop album that has echoes of MF Doom meets Souls of Mischief. I love the beats and the crazy weird (and smart) rhymes feel like a breath of fresh air.
Angel Olsen – Big Time
A very pretty country album. Angel’s voice is so good.
Clinton Fearon – Breaking News
