There’s so much good music out in the ether that sometimes it’s difficult to parse through all of it. Every week The Daily Music Report will do the hard work for you and highlight the best releases available on streaming services.

This week we’re highlighting new music from Runnner, Lee “Scratch” Perry, and J Mascis.

Runnner – Starsdust

Starsdust, the fourth album by Los Angeles-based songwriter and producer Noah Weinman (Runnner), is out now via Run For Cover Records. Entirely instrumental, the album features repurposed stems from Weinman’s previous LP, Like Dying Stars, We’re Reaching Out. Weinman used a variety of techniques to manipulate the sounds, including pitching, flipping, stretching, and chopping. The result is a unique and immersive listening experience.

Rooted in his signature dub style, the album explores various genres, including pop reggae, dancehall, and hints of psychedelic sounds, highlighting Perry’s versatility. With guest appearances from artists like Greentea Peng and Shaun Ryder, the album adds diverse voices. Daniel Boyle, Perry’s decade-long collaborator, handled production duties, ensuring continuity with a touch of Boyle’s expertise.
