Classic Objects,  album  by Jenny Hval. Norwegian singer/songwriter creates a pop album that is both intriguing  and hypnotic.  Each song is a stand-alone classic, but the entire 8-song album is a body of work that will last. Stream on Spotify and all major platforms.

Hola Impostora, single by Francisca Valenzuela. Francisca goes funky, Latin style. Wow! This song rocks and rolls, flirts, seduces,  and grabs you by the collar and makes you dance. Stream on Spotify, Apple Music, deezer, and Tidal

Oro Negro, single by Andrezka. Black gold  is the oil of her native Venezuela, but  in her song it is the immigrants and their creativity and culture.  At once mysterious and urgent, it delivers a powerful message with  steel drums , overdubs synths, and flutes and her direct, powerful voice B uy stream on all major platforms;  video on YouTube.

Misery and Gin , single by Layla Tucker.  Covering  Merle Haggard is always risky, but especially so for a woman in country, even Tanya Tucker’s daughter. The 22 year-old  Tucker pulls it off and pays  tribute to her hero  and friend so beautifully I think Merle would have loved it. I certainly do. Download/stream on all major platforms

BONUS.  Penelope by Flor de la Toloache on the  Floracita Rock -ERA album.  The Latin
Grammy-winning  mariachi does it again, this time in a kind of languorous Latin R&B.
