Post Malone’s new album Hollywood’s Bleeding is sure to dominate the charts this week, especially radio hits like “Circles” and “Goodbyes”. For an interesting and powerful debut, British R&B singer Mahalia released Love and Compromise. The Highwomen released a self-titled album symbolically combating sexism in the country music industry.  Electronic pop band MUNA examines personal growth on their latest record Saves the World.

For singles, Danny Brown released “Dirty Laundry” (though it was leaked a couple of days prior), teasing his upcoming collaboration U Know What I’m Sayin? with legendary producer Q-Tip. Grimes teamed up with house producer i_o for the deadmau5-inspired “Violence”, accompanied by one of the most striking music videos I’ve seen this year. Grimes is slated to release Miss Anthropocene by the end of this year. M83 also released “Temple of Sorrow”, a powerful seven-minute experience in preparation for Digital Shades Vol II releasing later this month.

Highlights – September 6th, 2019

Admittedly none of the albums released this week caught my attention or felt worthy enough for a review. However, the three singles that I mentioned I’ve had on playback since; Danny Brown has high expectations to follow up to his 2016 masterpiece Atrocity Exhibition, but “Dirty Laundry” does not disappoint. I’m a sucker for the synth house style that “Violence” perfectly nails, and with “Temple of Sorrow” M83 managed to create a seven-minute single whose length paid off in a tremendously satisfying buildup.
