Jai Paul – “Jasmine”
His long delayed full length debut – which leaked last year – is next level. A sub-continental James Blake with Tabla machine on blast. He’s not shy about taking every personal influence – Bollywood acapellas, side-chained grooves, found sound samples and movie dialogue – and weaving them into weird future R&B bangers. If you see him, tell him we need more.
Mac Demarco – “Chamber of Reflection”
Adrian Belew – “Oh Daddy”
Todd Terje – “Strandbar”
Caribou – “Can’t Do Without You”
Ariel Pink – “Put Your Number in My Phone”
Jimmy Cliff – “Many Rivers to Cross”
