FUTURE by Future. Classic Future.
Friend Zone by Thundercat, FUTURE by Future (especially Mask Off), May I by Chuuwee, and Alotta Women/Useless by Matt Martians. Chuuwee has a v NorCal sound that reminds me of the music my friends back home listen to (sample-heavy with a lazy flow, similar to HBK). Even though I've been listening to him for a while, he's come out with so much material that I still haven't been able to get through it all. Matt Martians' new album sounds like any other album by The Internet, but it's still so good!!
Black Sabbath. Paranoid is and will always be a great record. Dude, it's Black Sabbath.
Paul by Big Thief, I'd Like to Walk Around in Your Mind by Vashti Bunyan, and Knife Edge by Matt Corby. Discover Weekly has my back.

Moon Dust by Cherry Glazerr, 가을이 오면 by Yi Moon Sae, This is for the Lover in You by Shalamar, Disco Is by Shintaro Sakamoto, It Takes A Lot by Hush Moss, and Jesus is Coming to Gather His Own by Crowns of Glory. Hush Moss is great -- his sound reminds me a lot of the 80's. Shintaro Sakamoto and Cherry Glazerr's newest albums are interesting, and Yi Moon Sae is a nice throwback to the Korean Pop of my parents' time.
All the new Thundercat stuff. Also re-discovered Social Network soundtrack -- the greatest Studycore album of all time imo.
Saw Birds of Olympus live in Dublin!! They're an Irish group that's just starting up and they're invited to SXSW this year. Their concert was tons of fun and I got a chance to interview the band afterward so look for a blog post about that coming up in a week or two.
I've been listening to Poev Vannary, a Cambodian artist from the 60s and 70s, a lot recently. She was supposedly the first woman to play guitar on a Cambodian stage. Her music is so ethereal and evocative the time. Sadly, I haven't been able to find too much information on her, though it is assumed that she was executed under the Khmer Rouge regime like many other Western-influenced artists. Only one of her songs is on Spotify but you can find a ton of her music on Youtube.
