What is the next sizzling sound, the next lingering lyric? Well, this NYT playlist (“25 songs that tell us where music is going“, image from the article) is wonderfully presented but, like all such curations, very much aligned to specific tastes. For me, too much rap, soul and grossly popular. However, I’ll take a look at Kongs, Church of Misery, Mica Levi & Oliver Coates, and . . . I think that’s about it, a miserly haul indeed. You might extract more and if so, how wonderful!
