What's New 6-7-24

Stones Throw Records

Eight years after their breakthrough debut, NxWorries return with Why Lawd? – a winning combination of Knx’s unmistakeable beats and Anderson .Paak’s instantly recognizable vocals. This time, special guests are invited along for the ride. Featured artists include H.E.R., Snoop Dogg, Thundercat, Earl Sweatshirt, Rae Khalil and more.

Peggy Gou
XL Recordings

The South Korean-born, Berlin-based producer and artist has blazed her own trail as she’s ascended from underground sensation to global icon, becoming one of the most in-demand DJs in the world. I Hear You expands her forward-thinking club music, boldly claiming her voice through the kaleidoscopic lens of ‘90s house music.

Jesse Daniel
Lightning Rod Records

Since releasing his 2018 self-titled debut, Daniel’s earned great esteem as a country traditionalist and built a wildly devoted international following—thanks in no small part to his freewheeling live show. Daniel now offers up his fourth studio album: a high-powered body of work born from his ardent belief in preserving country’s legacy.

charli xcx

In Charli's words - "It's confrontational. it's confident. it's conversational. the lyrics are texts I would send to my friends. It's funny. It's fun. It's a club record so play it loud." Featuring tracks co-produced with Gesaffelstein, Hudson Mohawke, A.G. Cook and others, Brat reinforces Charli as the most important British pop star out there.

Nduduzo Makhathini
Blue Note

South African pianist, composer, philosopher, and healer Nduduzo Makhathini travels beyond any existing notion of music-making to offer his most profound vision of creative mysticism yet with his stunning eleventh studio album. The music is both an offering and an invitation to humanity to cultivate ways of being that strive for freedom and balance.

Man Man
Sub Pop

Carrot on Strings nods to the films of Werner Herzog and Rainer Werner Fassbinder as much as Italo-disco, Randy Newman, goth rock, and avant pop. The results represent a newfound sense of self for Ryan Kattner, who finds himself inspired and at peace both personally and artistically in ways that eluded him for most of his first 15 years playing music.

Tony Trischka
Down The Road

Gifted a thumb drive of rare recordings of Earl Scruggs and John Hartford jamming, Trischka set out to transcribe the private gatherings as an overview of Earl’s career. Now putting it on record, he’s joined by today’s leading bluegrass and old-time stars, including Sam Bush, Vince Gill, Del McCoury, Billy Strings, Molly Tuttle and more.

Alisa Amador
Honest Magic Records/Thirty Tigers

Amador’s music is a synthesis of the many styles she’s voraciously absorbed: rock, jazz, funk and alternative folk, all wrapped in the spirit of the Latin music she grew up with. On Multitudes, the 2022 NPR Tiny Desk Contest winner’s soulful singing, poetically incisive lyrics, and syncopated rhythms will make you cry, laugh, and dance all within one set.
