  • Amaarae: The Angel You Don’t Know
    <p>With a distinctive singing voice and confidence in spades, the breakout Afropop star swoops through a pacesetting fusion of alté, R&amp;B, Southern rap, mall-rock, and Top 40 pop.</p>

  • Angel Bat Dawid / Tha Brothahood: LIVE
    <p>This revelatory and confrontational live album centers around Angel Bat Dawid’s prowess as a bandleader. With her eclectic band, it is a brilliant document of how free jazz functions as both exploration and exorcism.</p>

    <p>Spread across two albums that function as one stunning piece of music, the Big Thief singer approaches familiar themes of loss, solitude, memory, and regret in some of the most vivid songwriting of her career.</p>

  • Jay Electronica: Act II: The Patents of Nobility (The Turn)
    <p>Long-delayed and eventually shelved, Jay Electronica’s near-mythical “lost” album finally sees official release after it was leaked. Even slightly unfinished, it is nearly an all-time classic, the kind of record that celebrates an art form while simultaneously pushing it forward.</p>

  • Fireboy DML: APOLLO
    <p>The rising Nigerian singer is on the vanguard of the hybrid “Afro-life” sound and his latest album is the peak of his vision so far, a melodious, detailed, and effortless album of feel-good pop and R&amp;B.</p>

  • Nubya Garcia: Source
    <p>On her stunning debut, the tenor saxophonist and rising member of the London jazz scene meditates on her humble family heritage, the continuum of jazz history, and the power of collective action in our present moment.</p>

  • Popcaan: FIXTAPE
    <p>The dancehall superstar’s latest mixtape is the best of every facet of his work, from slow-wine ballads to summery head-bangers. It’s a testament to his place at the forefront of the genre.</p>

  • The Microphones: Microphones in 2020
    <p>Phil Elverum resurrects his beloved Microphones alias for a 45-minute song about art-making, self-mythologizing, and the endless search for meaning. </p>

    <p>On her disco-inspired new album, Ware sounds bolder, looser — and frankly, more fun — than she has in a near-decade.</p>

  • Haim: Women in Music Pt. III
    <p>The third album from the trio is far and away their best. Intimate, multidimensional, and wide-ranging, the songwriting shines with personality and a great curiosity for melody and style.  </p>

  • Phoebe Bridgers: Punisher
    <p>On her marvelous second album, Phoebe Bridgers defines her songwriting: candid, multi-dimensional, slyly psychedelic, and full of heart. Her music has become a world unto itself.</p>

  • Bob Dylan: Rough and Rowdy Ways
    <p>Six decades into his career, Bob Dylan delivers a gorgeous and meticulous record. It is the rare Dylan album that asks to be understood and comes down to meet its audience.</p>

  • Drakeo the Ruler: Thank You For Using GTL
    <p>Recorded in jail over a crackly phone line, Drakeo’s mesmerizing album is a remarkable feat: a stark rebuke of the justice system and an unparalleled achievement for a rapper and his producer.</p>

  • Run the Jewels: RTJ4
    <p>On their fourth installment, Killer Mike and El-P are back to tune up the ruling class and the racist police state, this time streamlining the process and settling into their most natural rhythm.</p>

  • Medhane: Cold Water
    <p>On his latest project, the Brooklyn rapper realizes his vision. His forceful and focused bars are just one aspect of the highly skilled emcee’s community-focused and spiritually rewarding music. </p>

  • Perfume Genius: Set My Heart on Fire Immediately
    <p>Mike Hadreas’ fifth album glides between sublime melodies and grimy, guttural dissonance, embracing the joys and burdens of the human body and its innumerable, intangible yearnings.</p>

  • Moses Sumney: græ
    <p>The sprawling second album from the crystal-voiced singer-songwriter is a riot of moods. Moses Sumney widens the scope of his work and takes full account of his self, warts and all. </p>
