SOB X RBE, "Paramedic!"

Kendrick Lamar assembled the soundtrack to Black Panther, which ended up being a set of songs that are more inspired by the movie than necessarily being a traditional soundtrack. Kendrick is involved with everything, taking different roles depending on the song. As a result, even though there are a lot of different artists, it still feels like a coherent album. It's not quite as magnificent as his recent proper albums, but really, what could be?

Queen, "'39"

I've listened to this album a lot recently, because my kids really like Queen. And it's just a lot of fun. Corny as hell at times, yeah, but whatever, it's just intended to be entertaining above all.

Labradford, "Soft Return"

Labradford is a band with a strange sort of alchemy. Every one of their songs seems longer than it actually is. That's not to say it's unpleasant, but it feels much longer.

Max Romeo & The Upsetters, "Norman (Discomix)"

I'm not much of a dub guy, mostly. This album (Was Ina Babylon) is majestic, but the dub stuff isn't my favorite part of it.

Melvins, "Euthanasia"

Dope, Guns 'n Fucking In the Streets was an EP series from Amphetamine Reptile Records where each 7" featured four bands doing one song each. They were mostly noise rock and punk, and by and large were really good shit. Luckily for us, they collected the records into comps which are fun samplers of the late 80s/early 90s heavy underground.
