Sam Wilkes
WILKES

Jazzy Los Angeles multi-instrumentalist Sam Wilkes is ready with warm and beautifully produced debut full-length WILKES (I think you’re supposed to shout it) for Leaving Records. Wilkes himself performs most of the instruments throughout, but frequent collaborator Sam Gendel is at hand to lay down lots of sax. Other contributors include Christian Euman, Louis Cole, Brian Green and Etc.

Zeroh
BLQLYTE

Zeroh hails from Los Angeles and describes himself, among other things, as a ‘Hemp Gawd’ and an ‘Organic Man’. BLQLYTE is his latest album. He makes experimental hip-hop, a good example of which is his 2019 single Bang Babies. He has previously collaborated with L’Orange & Jeremiah Jae and Former Boy.

Ras G & The Afrikan Space Program
Stargate Music

Leaving Records (Matthewdavid, devonwho) provide a home for the latest LP by LA beat-smith Ras G. The Arrival is another sci-fi melting pot from the former Brainfeeder man. Plenty of cosmic and spiritual jazz influences rub shoulders with leftfield hip-hop takes and some Midwest house sounds. Will appeal to those who enjoyed the two Shabazz Palaces records that dropped in 2017. Out on 4/20.

YUNGMORPHEUS & Fumitake Tamura
Mazal

When YUNGMORPHEUS & Fumitake Tamura met it was MOIDER....no not quite murder but a mutual respect for each others work. The two musicians started trading their hypnotic beats and hazed-out compositions back and forth over the internet wires and the result is Mazal. The album has a dark paranoia borne out probably from the feeling of being black folk in Trump's America as well as identity politics, death and as YUNGMORPHEUS writes... 'tings'. 

Yuk
Paraiso EP

Not content with being a restaurateur and a rather good chef, Chad Valencia also makes music as Yuk. Paraiso EP is released via Leaving Records and is showing L.A. how lo-fi ambient records should be made. Paraiso EP is part one of a two-part series If you like Boards Of Canada, Teebs, Flying Lotus and Madlib you should check this out.

Black Taffy
Elder Mantis

One of them there beat tapes here. Elder Mantis falls on the more melodic side of the beatmaker world - think Clams Casino rather than J Dilla - and his new LP Black Taffy is another lush listen from the MPC-bothering Texan. Anyone who’s had some fun with recent full-lengths from Black Milk and Budgie should give Black Taffy a go.

Sam Wilkes
Live on The Green

Los Angeles jazz bassist Sam Wilkes leads a band featuring, on keys, Jacob Mann, drummer, Christian Euman, and guitarists Adam Ratner and Brian Green for Live On The Green. It was recorded in Wilkes’ hometown of Los Angeles in 2018. It features an Alice Coltrane cover and the added bonus of two studio tracks.

Ami Dang
Parted Plains

Baltimore’s Ami Dang takes us on a futuristic new age odyssey with her new LP Parted Plains. This record fuses psychedelic ambiences, Dang’s highly expressive sitar playing and folktales from both the Middle East and South Asia. The resulting record is a hazy and highly evocative listen that evokes Laraaji, Mary Lattimore, High Places and Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith.

Swan's Chamber
Swan's Chamber

The eponymous Swan's Chamber is the work of one multi-instrumentalist called Taylor Ross. I'm no expert in classical music, but to my ears Ross has created an album of cheery and pleasant chamber music using the guitar, piano and recorded. Whether or not this is for you, I think we can all agree it's wonderful music like this still gets made.

Opio
Wounded Healer

New solo EP from west coast rapper Opio, who most known for his work in groups Souls Of Mischief, and Hieroglyphics. Comes with three takes on the title track featuring Homeboy Sandman interspersed with three versions of Galvanometer. FFO Stones Throw, Aesop Rock’s leftfield approaches to boom bap.
