3 New Albums Out This Week You Should Listen to Now: Loving, PROJECTOR, and Little Simz
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 Loving, PROJECTOR, and Little Simz.
Loving – Any Light
Loving has just released their highly-anticipated second album, Any Light, through Last Gang Records/MNRK. Marking a departure from introspection to a more expansive exploration, Jesse Henderson and David Parry, the dynamic duo behind Loving, weave a sonic journey that’s both cinematic and expansive. Infused with lush acoustic guitars, airy synths, and angelic vocals, the album is a captivating experience. While Henderson and Parry masterfully handled most of the instrumentation, the magic unfolds with contributions from musician-friends like Evan Cheadle, Colin Nealis, Keenan Mittag-Degala, and Jeremiah Cashore, infusing additional layers of richness to the project.
Standout Songs: Any Light, Uncanny Valley, No Mast, To Turn
PROJECTOR – NOW WHEN WE TALK IT’S VIOLENCE
PROJECTOR’s debut album ‘NOW WHEN WE TALK IT’S VIOLENCE,’ navigates societal communication breakdowns, blending artful derangement, aggression, and catchy pop hooks, drawing influences from Joy Division and Squid. Recorded at Lone Star Studio London, the album explores grief’s stages, from anger to a semblance of acceptance. Reflecting on the title, bassist-singer Lucy says, “We as a society have failed to communicate. There’s no longer room for nuance, only shouting. Edward’s lyric ‘now when we talk it’s violence’ probably refers to a relationship, but I think it reflects something happening culturally.”

Little Simz – Drop 7 EP
Drop 7, Little Simz’s latest EP released on February 9th, 2024, is a thrilling departure from her usual sound. Teaming up with producer Jakwob, Simz takes a bold leap into a more club-oriented style, delivering energetic beats and danceable vibes. The seven-track EP showcases a fresh sound in each song, skillfully blending electronic elements with hip-hop landscapes. Continuing the tradition of her Drop series, which began in 2014 and saw its last installment with Drop 6 in 2020, this release coincides with the 10th anniversary of her inaugural Drop project, illustrating a decade-long artistic evolution.
