It’s #NewMusicFriday (Thanks Tay for the kick in the butt) and it’s been a tough day (RIP Bill Withers) and a tough month (RIP Sanity), but the music continues to find it’s way into people’s ears and hearts. I’m curious to hear what music will feel and sound like 4 months from now. Thundercat and Nick Hakim seemed to have tapped into the mood prior to all this. Listen to the full playlist here. Be safe!

Hey all. Back with a Sunday pop up edition of VALA FM: Sounds for Plant Lovers. To be honest, I lost track of time and dates and thought it was Sunday but recorded on Saturday. The beauty of self isolation? Hope you are keeping safe in your confines. I put together this set with hopes of keeping you company for a little less than hour. And thanks to all who joined me during my Friday night IG edition of Quarantine Gardens.
Also – Make sure to check out previous episodes!

Hey friends + fam.

New Music Friday continues during such uncertain times but I truly hope all this music helps with a little escape. I just purged through old records to make way for new sounds. Listen directly via Spotify here. Canada comes in strong with the new PartyNextDoor and Jessie Reyez who has one of the freshest voices in music today. Also on the radar is new KNXWLEDGE w/ Anderson .Paak,  And don’t sleep on Cleo Sol. Her whole production on this new album is timeless.
