New Music Friday - March 9, 2018

Be sure to view a list of upcoming releases here!

Essential Full-Length Releases

August Greene - August Greene

August Greene is a new project from Common, which sees him working again with longtime collaborators Karriem Riggins and Robert Glasper. Bringing pianist Glasper into the fold underscores Common's longtime interest in marrying jazz and hip hop. The debut album from the trio also brings in a new collaborator, and a name that I had not heard in a while, Brandy!

Watch: "Optimistic" (featuring Brandy)
Listen: "Black Kennedy"

Liza Anne - Fine But Dying

Fine But Dying is the third album from this artist from Georgia (the U.S. state). On the record, she deals head-on with past struggles with mental illness and the various interpersonal effects, as well as the conflict between internal state and outward appearance.

Watch: "Paranoia"
Watch: "Closest to Me"

Shamir - Resolution

Resolution was a surprise release from Shamir. He had previously announced an EP, Room, and released a few songs from that project. It's not his first surprise release; last year, he released Hope before the more traditional release cycle of Revelations.

Young Fathers - Cocoa Sugar

Young Fathers are a trio from Edinburgh. Their music is generally described as hip-hop, though that's a limiting descriptor for them. They also incorporate elements of pop, club music, and industrial. Cocoa Sugar is their third record.

Watch: "In My View"
Watch: "Lord"
