Frank Ocean “Channel Orange” (Def Jam)

This sounds a lot like the album of 2012. Enough eating and drinking in this one to do you for the rest of the year.

Cooly G “Playin’ Me” (Hyperdub)

Seductive, soulful, bassful, hypnotic inner city introspection from the onetime UK funky queenpin

Sam & The Womp “Bom Bom” (Stiff)

This is what we call an ear-worm. Infectious-as-hell stomping ska-step monster.

Slug Guts “Adult Living” (Sacred Bones)

Gritty takeout from “Playin’ In Time With the Deadbeat”, the third album from the Aussie punk rock desperados.

Joey Bada$$ “Waves” (Cinematic Music Group)

Neat throwback vibes from the 17 year old Brooklyn MC’s “1999” mix-tape.
