This month’s playlist is comprised of recent releases by some major acts in hip-hop as well as a handful of fresh tracks from a bad-ass crew of women leading the rock revolution! The diversity of artists is a testament to the type of quality, genre-bending music that is gaining traction.
Drake’s latest mixtape is an instant hook with his weightless verses and free-flowing rhythm, while Kendrick Lamar comes through with one of the catchiest tracks of the year, his funkadelic “King Kunta.” Courtney Barnett’s new EP was one of the best releases this month. As a breakthrough artist, her eccentric, grunge-rock persona is brilliantly captured by her delightfully simple, yet quirky poetic lyrics about the everyday mundane. This EP is a must listen from start to finish!
