Weekly Playlist 034-35

This post features 2 weeks of great, new music. Joey Bada$$, Cold War Kids, Future Islands, and San Fermin had new albums drop the week of April 3, while Kendrick Lamar and Little Dragon had albums drop this past week; I tried to put my favorite tracks from each new album on my playlist, but some choices were just too difficult!

That is to say, be sure to listen to each of these albums, as they are all fantastic works. If you’ve been paying attention to my blog, you’ll know that I was excited about Future Island’s release The Far Field, while also being eager to hear the new sounds coming from San Fermin’s new record Belong.

Also notable on this list are new singles from Minnesota indiepop-ers Poliça and a funky 13-minute jazz saga by reknowned saxophonist and producter Kamasi Washington. (seriously, if you have time to spare, give his “Truth” a listen; click the playlist button at the bottom to see it on my Spotify playlist)
