An actual, totally legit single from MF DOOM (with Czarface at that), more Exotica material from U.S. Girls, and a curiosity from the Animal Collective vault.

A five-year wait in our era is virtually a lifetime. Since Rhye's debut Woman, a lot has changed in the landscape of Alternative R&B. For better or worse, their music hasn't.

SiR's debut LP under TDE finds the crooner attempting a concept, and falling flat. Thankfully, the production and some creative moments keep November afloat.
