Daydreams & Nightmares

(Wichita Recordings)

Sounds Like: Shockingly rad sophomore from five young lady Swedes—nuanced and brooding electro pop with tinges of post-punk energy and new wave bliss.

Free Association: Smart move snagging that Robyn producer. You’re totally set now.

For Fans Of: The Killers, the XX + Katy Perry, fashionable Scandinavians.

Zion I & The Grouch

Heroes in the Healing of the Nation

(Z&G Music)

Sounds Like: Underground hip-hop heroes team up for a second collab with a sprinkling of guests, but the focus on here is the sick beats and conscious rhymes.

Free Association: Smart lyricism and hot beats will always beat out bombast and budget.

For Fans Of: Jurassic 5, Lifesavas, Blackalicious, noncorporate rappin’.

Raekwon

Shaolin vs Wu-Tang

(Ice Water)

Sounds Like: A Rae offering sans RZA’s production work has haters saying “See, you’re nothin’ widout him!” and others screamin’ “You aiiiight, Rae, you do you.”

Free Association: A true Wu-affiliate’s work with mad guests and Kung-Fu sounds.

For Fans Of: Meth, Nas, Black Thought, Busta, feuds, Staten Island.
