The Round Up: May / June '16

THE ROUND UP: MAY / JUNE '16

JULY 2016

Everyone knows how busy summer can get and, as the hot sun slows us down, we've been a bit lazy over the past few months. With this in mind, we present to you a special extended round up of May and June for you to rummage through. Find some tunes to jam to while you sip on mojitos and soak up the season's vibes.

Of special note this time round: Queen Bey's bold and vital Lemonade; the deft sounds of F.S. Blumm and Nils Frahm's third collaborative album, Tag Eins Tag Zwei; Esperanza Spalding's multidimensional concept album, Emily's D+Evolution; funk and disco courtesy of Brazil's Sandra de Sá; Débruit's psychedelic homage to Turkey's cultural capital, Débruit & Istanbul; the playful synth-pop sounds of Miharu Koshi's Tutu; and, of course, Incubus' landmark alt-rock album, Morning View.
