This week in music came with some great new releases from Kevin Abstract, Loyle Carner, Lizzo and Lastlings!
To start us off, Kevin Abstract dropped a surprise 6-track EP ‘Ghettobaby’; his first release since 2016’s ‘American Boyfriend: A Suburban Love Story’. The EP features some soulful and often experimental production. Taking many cues from Abstract’s work with BROCKHAMPTON over the past four years, the EP is a great return for the Texas rapper. Two of my personal favourites from the EP include the Frank Ocean styled Georgia, and the epic Baby Boy.
Another exciting release from the week was Tycho’s sweet new tune Easy. Continuing his rocky/electronic style, Easy teases what should hopefully be a huge year for Tycho fans.
