Here we go! 5 artists with cuts that are freshly scraped from this weekend’s KCRW playlists. Every week I dig through record bins and the blogosphere to find something new and different. These artists carry that torch.



The return of the electronic producer known for his work with Hercules and Love Affair, Metronomy and others is back with a beautiful forthcoming LP. This single titled Illusion of Time stopped me in my tracks. It has hints of the Uncut Gems soundtrack but also has it’s own unique texture.


Phony PPL 

Been a fan for a minute then randomly stumbled into one of their shows last year at SXSW. Was a surprise to see them backing Megan Thee Stallion on NPR’s Tiny Desk late last year and I’m just super proud as a music fan to see their growth.




I know very very little about this artist but what I do know is his voice is all chills.  Out of Yorkshire, this amazing singer/songwriter opened for Billie Eilish during the European leg of her tour. I really hope this brother continues his amazing journey.



Tyler The Creator 

Fresh off his recent Grammy win for best rap album for IGOR, Tyler delivers what sounds to possibly something left off the album? Regardless, Best Interest is the jam! It’s got that soul sample element we all loved in early Kanye, the flip of the vocal speed at the start, the raspy verse of Tyler, the chord change we appreciate in Earfquake, and the subject seems to take us where we left off with Frank Ocean’s Self Control.




Melbourne continues to deliver top notch forward thinking soul. Self taught, dj/producer ACIDSLOP has such a unique grit that channels Fly Lo, day time disco and Sly Stone into one interesting body of work. Listen to more here.
