New Music Friday!

I'm enjoying the new Charli XCX quite a bit as well. Makes for a pretty good release week for electronic music with L'Impératrice and Kaytranada. I've never gotten into a Charli XCX record before although I've enjoyed tracks here and there. This one is hitting that spot I was hoping the Dua Lipa would hit. But more raw than anything I'd expect from Dua Lipa. Almost feels like an underground/indie electronic record.

I'm with you, I really like the new Charli XCX and I was disappointed in the recent Dua Lipa.

The other pop album I've really enjoyed this year, which helped me get past my disappointment with the Dua Lipa album is the latest from Empress Of, which is excellent imo.

That Dua Lipa isn't bad, just bland. The singles are good, but the back half of the record kind of blends into the background. Too bad.

Really liked the new Actress.
Thanks for highlighting this Actress album. Just got around to it and loved it. This is my kind of ambient, in that it's dynamic and always keep you guessing. Gives me Huerco S. vibes.

Sidenote, bc I think I've seen that you dig his music, Laraaji is conducting a Sound Bath near me this weekend, and I'm going. Can't f'ing wait to zone out under his acoustic care.
