Albums and EPs
Black Panther The Album From And Inspired By — Kendrick Lamar, The Weeknd, SZA
Fusing allusion to Marvel's newest super-hero film with vital social commentary, this is a can't miss collection. Lamar delivers powerful lyrics and production, particularly in "All the Stars" and "X." Listen here.
Nation of Two — Vance Joy
Four years after his debut studio album Dream Your Life Away, Vance Joy returns with a resounding second album. Radiating with the Aussie's bright acoustic, folk sound, "Nation of Two" be around to stay. Listen here.
Morning View — Towkio
Chicago native Towkio offers something for everyone. From rhythmic ballads with SZA to hard bars, Towkio's Chicago style echos that of Chance the Rapper's Coloring Book. Listen here.
Greatest Tits — Thunderpussy
Alt-rock at its best, electric guitar and moody lyrics make this a great go to. On the softer side of the EP, "Torpedo Love" brings an alt ballad to the collection. Listen here.
Scary Hours — Drake
"God's Plan" has been widely circulated by now, but the EP's second track "Diplomatic Immunity" is a storytelling track in Drake's signature style. Listen here.
