In "More Pressure," Kae Tempest is joined by BROCKHAMPTON's Kevin Abstract, and the album is co-produced by Dan Carey and Rick Rubin. "'The Line Is A Curve' is about letting go. Of shame, anxiety, isolation, and falling instead into surrender," Kae says. https://bit.ly/3AL3xt1 Here's Kae Tempest performing live in the KEXP studio in 2019: https://bit.ly/3McUe9w

New from Working Men's Club! Syd Minsky-Sargeant discussed its creation and themes in a statement, saying, "The first album was mostly a personal documentation lyrically, this is a blur between personal and a third-person perspective of what was going on. "I like the contrast of it being happy, uplifting music and really dark lyrics," he added. "It’s not a minimal record, certainly compared to the first one. That’s because there’s been a lot more going on that needed to be said." https://bit.ly/3x7sCgr

New music from Toronto indie rockers Metric! The song is part of their next album Formentera. It is named after an island off the coast of Spain — a fantasy destination for the members of Metric, who, like most of us, couldn’t go anywhere during the pandemic.

HBD to Kendrick Lamar! From his 2015 classic 'To Pimp a Butterfly', Kendrick Lamar's "Alright" features uncredited vocals from the song's co-producer Pharrell Williams during the chorus. "Four hundred years ago, as slaves, we prayed and sung joyful songs to keep our heads level-headed with what was going on," Lamar said. "Four hundred years later, we still need that music to heal. And I think that 'Alright' is definitely one of those records that makes you feel good no matter what the times are." https://www.npr.org/2019/08/26/753511135/kendrick-lamar-alright-american-anthem-party-protest Video: https://youtu.be/Z-48u_uWMHY
