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. There’s also a little love from the brilliant Sebastian Tellier, a resurgent round from MGMT, a weido trap piece from Yung Lean and a sobering one-off from the jazz punks, BADBADNOTGOOD. All that and the first taste of the upcoming NxWorries remix album make this seven-day stretch a formidable one.

“I am endlessly sorry for my inappropriate behavior. I took advantage of my position as a musician, though I never intended to hurt anyone emotionally or otherwise.”
Matt Mondanile, aka Ducktails, has responded to recent allegations of multiple instances of sexual misconduct.
