Le Sserafim: Unforgiven

K Pop sensations Le Sserafim latest has been sticking with me for several months now so it most certainly deserves a shoutout. Unforgiven explodes towards the listener in a wonderfully aggressive way. Man oh man, those grooves!

We are Fearless...

Ducks Ltd.: Harm's Way (Album of the Week)

Toronto has a fabulous dudes with guitars band called Ducks Ltd. Their second long player, entitled Harm's Way, just dropped and it's an absolute corker. The opening track lets jangly pop fans know that they are home...

Later in the album, we are treated to this dark gem...

This magnificent duo has a very bright future ahead of themselves!

Iraina Mancini: Undo The Blue

London's own Iraina Mancini has a corker of a debut record out called Undo The Blue. There are so many genres present on this album that I honestly find myself at a loss to describe it. One key one is Kennedy Era Cool fave! 

Cue the martinis...

Lil' Yachty: Let's Start Here (Album of the Week)

Lil' Yachty's latest record, Let's Start Here, resets all expectations of what rap and hip hop should be. In fact, it strives for and reaches new horizons that I honestly thought wasn't possible for music in general. 

The tone is set immediately with the opening track...

And then we go on THE RIDE.

This record should be in the Hall of Fame...

Soojin: Agassy (EP)

K Pop Sensation Soojin have a most excellent EP out called Agassy and I have to say it makes this old lounge lizard happy as heck that people are still making music with an early 60s, Kennedy Era Cool vibe. 

Soft and cool...just like a martini...

Laura Veirs: Phone Orphans

Laura Veirs latest offering is yet another gem. The record is called Phone Orphans and, once again, the Portland, Oregon native brings her soft sweetness combined with lyrical beauty to the world of music. 

Always love the nature themes...
