Kelly Rowland 

Here I Am


Sounds Like: The Destiny’s Child castoff will never outdo her more talented sister-friend. She kills some gay bar bangers, but a few tracks feel cheaply made.

Free Association: Somehow she straddles the line between gay icon and hood diva.

For Fans Of: Toni Braxton x Craig David, Big Sean/Lil Wayne, 
a lil’ bump ’n’ grind.

The War On Drugs

Slave Ambient

(Secretly Canadian)

Sounds Like: A beautifully gentle sophomore collection of tunes pulled 
off by four Philly friends who love Dylan.

Free Association: A Dylan love as robust as their Kenzinger consumption.

For Fans Of: Big Star x Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine, 
jamming in Fishtown.

Canon Blue


(Temporary Residence)

Sounds Like: A lovely second LP from an electro-folkie expanding his sound and recruiting help to build a big, beautiful, sonically conceived tour around the midwest.

Free Association: Remember Bon Iver’s LP of location songs? This is like that, but better.

For Fans Of: Sufjan Stevens x Serge Gainsbourg, 
Boards of Canada, Paul Bunyan.
