Dirty Projectors Bitte Orca
Prog-guitar could be befitting for extreme metal if not played trebly-thin and fuzzed out and/or on what sounds like multiple miniature harps, slightly-androgynous weirdo frontman finds companionship in would-be choir girls who mostly harmonize in yelps and chirps, philosophical queries made during a makeshift-percussion strings-laden r&b smash: in a world they can call their own, these talented quirkoids can nail both fun+complex and sincere+serene with flying colors, often during the same song. With unmistakable character, too - when they extend the invite to live in "a space for you in the basement, yeah", I get the notion that upon accept

Drake If You're Reading This It's Too Late
Refreshing lack of commercialized furnishings while still retaining the kind of hooks that dominate pop culture, which this lengthy album-quality-"mixtape" delivers one after another after another. Not to mention, his rap game also has more space and time to be properly showcased, and as usual, he's all too eager to flaunt his ever-refined skill-set; bursting with clarity, confidence, and finesse.

Quarterbacks Quarterbacks
Timid and speedy pop-punk trio who like their songs simple, their sixers from Mobil, and their boyish crushes numerous+unresolved.

Breakfast in Fur Flyaway Garden
It immediately grabs you with sun-kissed opener "Shape", what follows sets focus aside and just sorta drifts along like pixie-dust in the wind, slightly devolving into honeyed run-of-the-mill pop-gaze that's heavy on airy vocals and aimless interludes.

Burial Rival Dealer
A gritty-city mini-adventure that somehow thematically incorporates both outer space and anti-bullying (!). Sentiments are expressed via convoluted samples and ethereal female voices in a loosely strung together rain-soaked glitch world that blasts breakbeats amidst gun clicks and train screeches, slows down time completely, and lifts spirits into the heavens with posi-synths.
