Say hello to Noga Erez: we've just given her the keys to the office, the passwords to all our social media accounts, and every single promo CD we've received since 2008. That's what happens when your music taste is this strong. Please keep the website safe, Noga. We're counting on you.

Check out Carl Osbourn's excellent photos below, and be sure to pick up Noga's debut album, Off The Radar, when it drops on June 2nd via City Slang. Big love to Sister Ray Records for allowing us in your store yet again.

Run The Jewels - Run the Jewels 3

I just love how this album sounds. It's so rough, exciting and bold.


Björk - Medúlla

Björk is an example of an artist who keeps exploring, and on this album specifically she took her limitless voice and used it to create all the layers of the music with a creativity that knows no boundaries.


Austra - Future Politics

Austra is just a unique artist in my opinion. She brings a new and refreshing approach to everything she does - it's very inspiring.


Kendrick Lamar - To Pimp A Butterfly

It's almost uncool to talk about this album because so many people love it and have talked about it, but whenever I go back to it, it brings me to a new understanding of the power that music has, and how much an artist can really influence and touch people's lives.


Flying Lotus - Until The Quiet Comes

I had to pick just one of FlyLo's albums, but I truly love all of them. He is a crucial influence on my work when it comes to production and sound.


Brian Jonestown Massacre - Thank God for Mental Illness

This is a bit out there because you don't really see much of this type of music in my sound, but as I came across this record in the shop it reminded me of a few months when I just kept playing it on repeat. Its simplicity and roughness is brilliant.


Kaytranada - 99.9%

This is such a fun and amazing sounding record. I just love the beats here, the crunchiness of the sound. And there are some great hooks in there too.


D'Angelo And The Vanguard - Black Messiah

I'd been waiting for new music from D'Angelo for a very long time when he dropped this incredible record and he blew my mind, once again, with his songwriting, instrumentations and endless amount of vibe.

Usually, we'd have to ditch a whole bunch of images for time/space-saving reasons, but these photos were too good to justify that.
