Recently, we’ve all been graced with new music coming from artists such as Kali Uchis, who just put out her new single “After the Storm” featuring 70s funk singer Bootsy Collins and rapper Tyler, the Creator. As well as new music from group BROCKHAMPTON who came out with their newest album “SATURATION III”, which was released late last year. The picks for this month include some songs from albums that came out earlier in 2017 like “Somersault” by Beach Fossils, “Soft Sounds from Another Planet” by Japanese Breakfast, and Michael Cera’s and Sharon Van Etten’s single “Best I Can” for the documentary Dina. The pickings for this month also have some oldies like Simon & Garfunkel with their song “The Only Living Boy in New York” from their 1970 album “Bridge Over Troubled Water”. The song was also featured in the soundtrack for the excellent 2004 movie Garden State directed by Zach Braff.
