For Fans Of: B.E.P. x David Guetta, Sia/J. Lo/LMFAO, Rick Ross in da club.

 

Various Artists

MMG Presents: Self Made, Vol. 2

(MMG/Warner Bros.)

Sounds Like: The ubiquitous Mr. Ross brings together most of today’s hoodest emcees for a trill and chill collection of purple-flavored hip-hop heavy on realness.

Free Association: Are people not tired of that chick always cooing “Maybach Music?”

For Fans Of: Nas/French Montana/Meek/Wiz/T-Pain/ Bun B/T.I./Wale, obese swag.

 

Port St. Willow

Holiday

(Self-released)

Sounds Like: Nick Principe is a young, sad-sounding multi-instrumentalist from Brooklyn who’s friends with the Antlers, and this is a stunningly beautiful solo debut.

Free Association: Not summery or light-hearted, but deeply felt and expressed emotion.

For Fans Of: Sigur Rós x Wild Beasts, the National/the Walkmen on ambien, slowcore.

 

Dirty Projectors

Swing Lo Magellan

(Domino)

Sounds Like: Dave Longstreth leads the sixth from the collective, and it’s another achievement of delicately complex rhythms, creative songwriting and stunning vocals.
