“Music doesn’t get in. Music is already in. Music simply uncovers what is there, makes you feel emotions that you didn’t necessarily know you had inside you, and runs around waking them all up. A rebirth of sorts.”Matt Haig, How to Stop Time
Here are the albums, new and old, that inspired me this past month.
A sprawling jazz album from the talented drummer whom I first heard with Tom Misch on their collab album What Kinda Music (which is insanely great). This one is such a treat for the ears.
The legendary saxiphonist died a year ago this month and I’ve been really enjoying his catalog, especially the recent release. Long live Pharoah.
Beautiful instrumental album. “‘Guiding Hand’ is an innovative electronic record with a strong emotional resonance. Pulling from musical inspirations such as Caribou, Jai Paul, J Dilla, Toro y Moi, and Jamie XX”
Should I not like this album because Rosin made some unfortunate comments which they they apologized for? I don’t think so. It’s one of my favorites of the year.
Electronic dance music that hits me in just the right way.
Other albums that found their way to me (and stayed) this month:
- Raw Poetic. – Away Back In
- George Clanton – Ooh Rap I Ya
- Chemical Brothers – For That Beautiful Feeling
- Smoke DZA & Flying Lotus – Flying Objects
- Blu & Real Bad Man – Bad News
