Hi again. From a fairly recent Spotify update comes the dazzling debut album by singer-songwriter D.D. Dumbo. Enjoy!

(There is also a new playlist, Spotinews 076, with samples from updates starting today. Note that I copied the two tracks from yesterday, and moved the update this morning, to 076.)

Good morning. We start off the new release week with the latest album by Jagwar Ma. Genre: dance/psychedelic pop. Enjoy!

Hey again. The final update of this release week was a big surprise for me. Poet/rapper/spoken word artist Kate Tempest creates soundscapes that will make you melt. Recommended listening. Read some positive reviews and enjoy!

(Genre: I’ll put this as soul/pop even though that may be slightly inaccurate.)
