MUSIC:reflections for 2022-05-20

This Week's New Releases

Excited for new albums from Tourist (yes!!!), Stavroz, Hardkandy and Flume, plus new singles from Poliça, Sylvan Esso, Purity Ring, Foals and others. Also, it’s nice seeing Grant-Lee Phillips still making music after all these years. I have fond memories of seeing Grant Lee Buffalo live all those years ago.

Everything in one playlist for easy consumption:
