Amazing month, again:

1: Jay Electronica - A Written Testimony
2: Porridge Radio - Every Bad
3: Lyra Pramuk - Fountain
4: Childish Gambino - 3.15.20
5: Waxahatchee - Saint Cloud

Also listened to Lil Uzi Vert loads. Still can’t decide if it’s genius or I’ll be sick of it next month, and got Nicolas Jaar on repeat but haven’t quite got my head round it yet.

6 & 7 would have been Nazar, which is stunning but quite hard to listen to often, & CS + Kreme’s ‘Snoopy’ which is really starting to remind me of Massive Attack minus the rappers, and has really crept up on me. They are both excellent records that are worth a cursory listen.

Tried twice, couldn’t get past track 3 either time. So dull but also kinda cringe imo

(have House of Balloons in my 2010s top 100 and am partial to bits of the one with Can’t Feel My Face on it)

You might also like Margaret Glaspy I reckon.

Don’t think I’ll have enough time to make my mind up on much more than this so

  1. Caroline Rose - Superstar
  2. U.S. Girls - Heavy Light

Both are absolutely fantastic and probably the first two “great” albums I’ve heard so far this year (so I guess this decade too)

Listened to the Dua Lipa, Porridge Radio, Bad Bunny, and Waxahatchee records as well - lots of individual songs to like between them (Dua Lipa especially). but all of them have substantial flaws and in a stronger month (or maybe one where i had as much listening time as usual) they would have likely been honourable mentions, so don’t want to skew the numbers

Thanks again @BMS1 for doing these threads :slight_smile:
