What are your favorite new releases this week?

(31) Days of Good//12.30.16

.Paak released the best Summer album of 2016…in January. Call it whatever you want – hip hop, neo-soul, RnB, millennial jazz, and so on. It’s all of these sounds and more. It’s powerful, it’s brilliant, it’s visionary, and it sounds fantastic.

The group’s first new release since 2012. Good Lord. This is fantastic. It may or may not be about current(?)/former(?) bandmate Amber Coffman, but it’s new Dirty Projectors and it’s fantastic. I can’t wait to hear more.

Yet another indie pop gem from a group that is finally getting the long overdue praise they deserve.

Trails and Ways//Chico//2.28.14

Trails_and_ways_chico_state_poster

About 6 months ago, I packed up the last 12 years of my life and left Southern California behind. But as much as I love calling Chico my home again, I truly miss the smorgasbord of live music that takes place on a daily basis down south. But this Friday (2/28) one of my favorite bands, Trails and Ways, are making the trek up from Oakland for a show at Chico State. They’ll be joined by San Luis Obispo’s Fialta, an indie pop quartet with a super fun and infectious sound.

 

 

I haven’t been this excited for a show in quite some time. Show details and ticket information can be found on the show’s facebook page. The campus radio station, KCSC, is also giving away pairs of tickets all week.
