Childish Gambino - “Awaken, My Love!”

I’ve only recently gotten into CG, had never really listened to him before. I’ve had _“Camp” _on repeat a fair amount recently. Couldn’t really get into his latest effort though. Maybe a few more listens will help.

Blue & Lonesome - The Rolling Stones

Blackstar - David Bowie

Friends - White Lies

It’s a big departure from his other work, but it’s a grower. Helps if you divorce it from his previous albums and take it as a standalone.

Anything from here


#13

I had to! I spent most of the year listening to Prince and weeping.


#14

Haha…I was thinking that…but I am old and out of touch.


#15

You might like the Anna Meredith one, Fatsy.

Although I’m always a bit crap at predicting your taste. You’re so mauve.


#16

The only new music I listen to is usually suggested by posters on here so I concur with suggestions above, particularly the Bowie and Radiohead albums.

Am also enjoying The Soft Bounce by Beyond The Wizards Sleeve at the moment (yes, I know it sounds like I just made that up).


#17

Leonard Cohen - You Want it Darker.

That is all.

Some of the above, plus:

Ulrika Spacek - The Album Paranoia

Death Grips - Bottomless Pit
