(Sunday 3 July through Sunday 10 July)

Fresh -Ish)

Albums, mixtapes, EPs, whatever… Not all new releases! … every fresh(-ish) project I’ve listened through over the last week, whether with deep intent or in the background while I’m trying to get my head round something else.
Rated!nothing to do with quality! WTF would I know about quality? …based on how likely I am to go back to it, or bits of it, with 5* meaning it’s already been on repeat…

Rap & post-Rap

Apollo Brown: This Must Be The Place (Mello Music Group) | 1* | …cued this up in a moment of madness, forgetting how much instrumental hip-hop totally does my head in… more than any other score I’ve ever given on here, this one’s really no reflection on quality, in the slightest…
