Plug-in and tune-out: New music for 2016

Written by: Meghan Henoumont



David Bowie




Blackstar, David Bowies 26th and final album, was released Jan.8 on the acclaimed musicians 69th birthday and a mere two days before his death. Regardless of where you are from or what music you prefer; chances are you’ve not only heard of Bowie but listened to his music. Whatever the case, Blackstar is a must listen. As-per-usual Bowie smashes through boundaries both lyrically and genre wise. This album is a beautiful self-portrait of one of the most influential people in music history. A strange distant star that refuses to burn out even after its time.



Anderson .Paak




Malibu, is West Coast- based rapper Anderson .Paak’s third album to date. This album is his most confident and personal project yet. Malibu is packed full of guests who have preformed with Anderson since the beginning. Featuring the Game, ScHoolboy Q and Talib Kweli. Malibu is an expansive production that flows in every direction like a classic ’70s double album.






Venezuela-born producer Alejandro Ghersi, better known as Arca, is defined by his fluidity and exuberant self expression. Mutant is abstract electronic music that has been infused with the playful spirit of early, ‘90s rave energy, but stands on its own as highly personal art. Arca continues to be one of the few electronic artists making music for our current time. Mutant is no exception. This album is utterly original, hypnotic and as danceable as ever.
