An interesting week, with April Fools clouding a number of excellent releases, including LPs by Weezer, Frankie Cosmos, and Explosions in the Sky. Another highly notable release came courtesy of a Kanye West leak, with the possible Turbo Grafx 16 cut garnering universal praise. “Checking Instagram comments to crowdsource my self-esteem”, damn.
Elsewhere, dvsn, the mysterious OVO-signed artist that made waves last year through a run of impressive singles, dropped a surprise album. It’s a terrific record, and highly recommended for fans of R&B.
