MUSIC:reflections for 2022-06-17

New albums from Foals, Bartees Strange, Perfume Genius, Yaya Bey, should make for a high quality weekend. Foals and genre-hopping Bartees Strange keep getting better with time, and excited by (new-to-me) Yaya Bey. On top of all that we get new drops from Röyksopp, Lana Del Rey, SBTRKT, Flying Lotus and Bolivard – any which would be a win in their own right, and of course Drake’s new album. Happy weekend all.

Last Week’s Distilled Gems:

Nick Mulvey’s album was excellent as always. Take some time to go through his catalog, it’s worth it.

Olan was really superb and will easily go into higher rotation for the foreseeable future.

The Odesza ep was great – looking forward to the full length.

More gems in there no doubt but from this week, I got stuck on Nick Mulvey and Olan
