Tim Lambert dishes up a fresh serving of choons you must hear this week.
NXWORRIES, LYK DIS
Anderson. Paak can do know wrong. Before he blew up on Dr. Dre’s Compton and debut album Malibu, he was teaming up with super producer Kwxledge to create sweet beats under the moniker Nxworries. The first taste of their new album in Lyk Dis, a sultry, blush-inducing love-making instructional that is smoother than the 40-year-old Glenfiddich I’ll never afford.
NICK CAVE & THE BAD SEEDS, I NEED YOU
I’m just going to leave this here. I Need You is the fragile, stirring, devastating highlight of Skeleton Tree.
JESS KENT, THE SWEET SPOT
Somewhere in between M.I.A and reggae dance hall vibes, you hit The Sweet Spot. Sydney lord Jess Kent is about to drop her first EP, and with it begin her global domination. We Jess Kent get enough of this girl – not sorry about that.
DANNY BROWN, REALLY DOE FEAT. KENDRICK LAMAR, EARL SWEATSHIRT & AB-SOUL
The lineup on Really Doe is the musical equivalent of pizza, beers and Friday night footy – just a few of my favourite things. Danny Brown’s new album Atrocity Exhibition is out September 30.
WILLOW BEATS, DVARAKA PT. II
In the lead-up to what is sure to be an epic Listen Out set, uncle-niece duo Willow Beats have let Dvaraka Pt. II out to play, with its buoyant electronica anchoring Kalyani Mumtaz’s dreamy vocal.
