Trey Songz traps out his soul on Intermission I & II

Trey_SongsA perfect combination of spacey sub-bass and slow-jams, Intermission is made for chilling with your boo. Dim the lights and drop the BPMs with Trigga. This 12-track LP features the first five songs from the original Intermission EP plus seven more, including “How Could You Forget” featuring Pusha T. –JBoogie

CURATOR’S CHOICE

You probably won’t ever meet anyone who doesn’t like this song.

Marc_AnthonyWith “La Gozadera, Gente De Zona and Marc Anthony dropped the Pan-Latino anthem of the summer, the year and (dare we say) the decade. Get ready to hear “La Gozadera” on repeat for the next five years. The time is now for GDZ, and they are taking full advantage. –Marcos Juarez

Taylor Swift rolls out another pop hit with “Bad Blood” remix.

Taylor_SwiftOn May 17, Taylor Swift unveiled her “Bad Blood” video at the Billboard Music awards. Featuring a slew of notable performers, it also doubled as a remix with Compton MC Kendrick Lamar dropping two new verses, giving it a trappy inflection on the beat in between Swift’s infectious vocals. –Michelle Solomon

 

 

Emmylou Harris recently said, “I really don’t listen to current country.”

Emmylou_HarrisThe Traveling Kind draws a deeper line between overproduced modern country and true grit Americana. Where the former tends to muse on trucks and spring break, Harris and Rodney Crowell’s second album of duets is trimmed with high-lonesome harmonies and an emotional vulnerability you’ll never hear from Auto-Tuned vocals. –Eric Shea

The anti song of the summer is here.

Chelsea_WolfeChelsea Wolfe has delivered the anthem for those to whom summer does not mean beaches or parties. Dark and haunting, “Iron Moon” will be the soundtrack for the hours after the sun is gone, its brooding atmosphere sustaining us through the night. Let these curling tendrils of gloom envelope you. –Diego Gonzalez

House music’s past meets its future on Shamir’s fierce Ratchet.

ShamirShamir may be a sassy 20-year-old Vegas kid in lime-green shorts, but his debut album is fearless and inspiring. Ratchet nods to classic house, Prince and XL labelmates like M.I.A. But his voice (along with propulsive beats from former Pitchfork writer Nick Sylvester) is thrillingly new – both coy and self-assured. –Party Ben

Another burnished black gem from this post-punk/goth-pop one-man band.

Soft_MoonAnd as the title implies, Soft Moon’s third full length is in fact much Deeper than previous outings – darker and moodier as well. SM mastermind Luis Vasquez whips up a post-NIN sprawl of brooding introspection, wound around bristling industrial beats, glitchy electro squelch and dense swirls of psychedelic synth. –Andee Connors
