Happy Friday, good people of the world. And welcome to another installment of your weekly catch-up session.

With new albums from Jessie Ware, Blu & Exile, Lindstrøm and Snoh Aalegra and a surprise tape from the trap gawds, Future and Young Thug, there’s a wild array of full-lengths to flip through this weekend. But as you might have already gathered, I’m here for the sunken, slightly hidden gems of the week in releases. And the playful Franco-electronica of Frank Ocean producers, Jarami, is a great place to begin.

‘Arrow’: “Next of Kin” Trailer and Images Reveal the New Green Arrow

In last night’s “Tribute,” the big moment was not Oliver openly acknowledging that Bruce Wayne exists in this CW world somehow, but rather, Oliver handing over the mantle of Green Arrow to someone else: Diggle. Diggle has put on the hood before to help throw off investigations into Oliver being the hero, and of course, Oliver has never been under more scrutiny than now. But what Oliver offers Dig at the end of “Tribute” is not a stunt, but the whole shebang: to become the Green Arrow. For the last few seasons of Arrow, Oliver has tried to work …
