As ever, there have been a multitude of new albums released in the last few weeks, and our music discussion podcast, Views From The 405 with Rob Hakimian and Kieran Devlin, is back to discuss the ones we've been listening to. Our main album focuses are Japanese Breakfast's Soft Sounds From Another Planet and Tyler, The Creator's Flower Boy, before we discuss the DJing prowess of Dan Snaith aka Daphni. We also touch upon a number of other new releases that have been grabbing our attention - for good and bad reasons - followed by a delve back into one of Rob's favourite debut albums, The Violet Hour by The Clientele.

We also discussed a few articles that we'd enjoyed in recent weeks including: A Conversation with Phoebe Bridgers by Maria Sledmere on Gold Flake Paint, In Sync: Holly Herndon interviews Jlin on Crack, and Macao: Collective Activism by Christine Kakaire on Resident Advisor.
