Upcoming Album of the Week (Ending September 2)

I've been watching a pretty cool You-Tube series called Hot Ones from First We Feast. The show features interviews with musicians, athletes, and actors as the host and guest eat gradually hotter wings. I've even purchased one of the hot sauces featured on the show. Past guests have included rappers Vince Staples, A$AP Ferg, and Action Bronson, and all are pretty awesome episodes, check it out!

If any of the artists featured on Hot Ones decide to write albums about their experience, be sure to check it out over at my Upcoming Releases page!

This week, Ibeyi announced their sophomore album, Ash.

Ibeyi is a set of twins, Lisa-Kaindé Diaz and Naomi Diaz, who released a spectacular self-titled debut album in 2015. The girls are the daughters of the late Buena Vista Social Club drummer, Anga Díaz,. Their music has incorporated elements of their father's Afro-Cuban, the French of their births, as well as soul, R&B, and experimental music.

They announced their sophomore album on Thursday along with the Kamasi Washington-featuring first track, "Deathless". Additional guest appearances on the record include Chilly Gonzales, Meshell Ndegeocello, and Mala Rodriguez.

Ash is set for release on September 29.
