I love discovering new music and hope that by sharing my monthly finds it inspires you to listen to something different.
February was kind of a weird month for new stuff. It didn’t feel like there was much that came out, but I still wrote up what I think is a solid list here, so go figure. I guess February was full of surprises.
Here are my favorite albums this month in no particular order.
A new-to-me hip-hop artist who has made a weird, wild, and infectious album. It has a vibe I keep wanting to come back to.
I don’t know what to call this. It’s rock-jazz-funk-reggae-pop all in one. It’s best played loud and I’ve been playing it a lot.
I’m still learning about legendary saxaphonist Charles Lloyd. I know this much: I love his recent work like this epic set of him performing as part of different trios.
Pretty album from a singer-songwriter I didn’t know before. Fits my mood for low-fi music in the afternoon and was produced by BADBADNOTGOOD (who had another one of my favorite albums of 2021) so I could play it just for the instrumentals alone.
As close to ambient music as I’ve gotten in a while. Really digging the sonic spaces of this collection as a background to my mornings.
Feeling shades of Django Django and Peter Bjorn and John and Radiohead on this one. Interesting. I like it!
OK that’s it, February is a wrap.
As always, let me know if any of this grabs you and definitely let me know what I might have missed.
Happy listening. ✌️
