The Internet

Purple Naked Ladies

(Sony Red)

Sounds Like: A collaboration of two Odd Future members, Syd tha Kyd (A LADY!) and Matt Martians, is a silky, jazz-inspired hip-hop and R&B hybrid full of trippy beats.

Free Association: The Internet is a very difficult band to find on the Internet—very pomo.

For Fans Of: Erykah Badu for Outkast, Tricky x Groove Theory, black-lit blunt sessions.

Porcelain Raft

Strange Weekend

(Secretly Canadian)

Sounds Like: The solo debut of Mauro Remiddi, an Italian pianist who’s soundtracked many short films; this is beautiful, synth-heavy dream rock that’s gonna be big.

Free Association: He’s all set to tour with M83—the children are going to love him.

For Fans Of: Phantogram x Beach House, Mates of State, staying ahead of the curve.

Roscoe Dash

J.U.I.C.E. EP

(Interscope)

Sounds Like: The ATL party rap newb’s got a mohawk so he’s futuristic; his sophomore isn’t much like “All The Way Turnt Up,” which is a pleasant R&B-flavored surprise.

Free Association: There’s definitely drumroll drops, but not in a Juvenile-heavy way.

For Fans Of: Timbaland for Lil Wayne, Drake x Soulja Boy, champagne and jacuzzis.

Charlie Haden & Hank Jones

“How awfully cynical & bitter is Bill Chenevert? his review references need a big update.”
