If you’ve been loitering around the margins, you might have noticed that R&B sounds pretty different these days. Artists like Kelela, FKA Twigs, SZA, Jessy Lanza, Sampha, Kingdom, Iman Omari and more are collectively embracing experimentation, leading to engaging and novel results. Conveniently, Saint Records (Solange Knowles’ new record label) has collected a few of these results and compiled them into a 12-track LP. It’s not an exhaustive list of these ongoing experiments, but it’s a very respectable introduction and it was curated by Solange. It doesn’t get better than this. Stream it via Spotify below.
We don’t typically post compilations, but this is a special case; these artists represent a much-needed aesthetic shift in R&B and beyond. Where they will take us is unclear, but the journey itself is definitely worth our time, especially since some of these artists have been vying for our attention for ages.
