Following releasing her relentlessly catchy debut one, “Whip My Hair” in 2010 (when she was just nine several years outdated), the singer and rapper Willow went on to release extra than a fifty percent-dozen albums and EPs of largely uptempo pop and dance tunes. But on her most up-to-date album, These days I Experience Anything, the now 20-yr-aged artist will get loud and electric with a assortment of ’90s-influenced guitar rock, influenced by Wicked Wisdom, the nu-metallic band her mother, Jada Pinkett-Smith, used to be in. We open this week’s present with Currently I Experience Every thing, and speak about Willow’s exponential expansion as an artist.
Also on the clearly show: the very predicted new album from Clairo, the oh-so-’80s “sob rock” of John Mayer, a posthumous release from Alice Coltrane and extra. NPR Music’s Felix Contreras joins contributors Christina Lee, Cyrena Touros and WXPN’s John Morrison, together with NPR Music’s Lars Gotrich, Stephen Thompson and host Robin Hilton to share their picks for the finest albums and EPs out on July 16.
