Holy shit, this week has been AMAZING for music. Radiohead, James Blake, and ANOHNI have all released albums in the last week. Combine that with Lemonade and Alicia Keys’ new single and you have one intensely emotional music experience!

This Music Monday includes these artists (except for Bey; Lemonade is only on Tidal) and several others. What happens when Miguel collaborates with Tame Impala?  Really, really good stuff. Kaytranda also collaborates with quite a few artists on his recent album, and this edition of Music Monday features a cut of theirs with AlunaGeorge. ANOHNI’s intensely personal “Drone Bomb Me” serves as a simultaneous critique and gut-wrenching apology. (albeit “color blind” from a privileged POV)

Fear not; it is not all tears. The beats are still danceable and we inject plenty of levity with Shamir, IshDARR and Innanet James, among others.
