This week we’re highlighting new music from Mitski, Nas, and Alan Palomo.
Mitski – The Land is Inhospitable and So Are We
The Land Is Inhospitable and So Are We marks a significant shift in Mitski’s musical trajectory as this album deviates from Mitski’s previous synth-pop and disco-driven works, embodying a more stripped-down and acoustic approach that accentuates her vocals and songwriting. Diverging into folk, rock, and country elements, this musical departure has been celebrated for its emotional sincerity and lyrical candor. Produced by Patrick Hyland, the album is her seventh overall and was released via Dead Oceans. The recording process took place at the Bomb Shelter studio in Nashville and Sunset Sound in Los Angeles.
Standout Songs: Bug Like an Angel, Heaven, Star
Nas – Magic 3
Magic 3, the seventeenth studio offering from renowned American rapper Nas, emerged on September 14, 2023, courtesy of Mass Appeal Records. Standing as the third installment in Nas’ esteemed Magic series, the album signifies the conclusion of Nas and Hit-Boy’s prolific partnership, spanning six consecutive albums, including the King’s Disease trilogy and the preceding two Magic albums. Lil Wayne makes a singular guest appearance on the album, adding a distinct touch to Nas’ compelling narrative. Musically, Magic 3 seamlessly carries forward the signature sound crafted through Nas and Hit-Boy’s prior collaborations. Nas showcases his enduring lyrical prowess, delivering introspective and reflective verses that resonate profoundly with the audience.

Alan Palomo, known for his role as the frontman of the electronic pop band Neon Indian, has unveiled his latest musical venture, World of Hassle. The album marks a significant shift as Palomo’s debut under his own name, diverging from his established musical trajectory. World of Hassle intricately weaves a diverse array of genres, embracing vaporwave, rock, and cumbia, showcasing Palomo’s willingness to experiment and evolve. This departure from his earlier, more pop-oriented style illuminates his artistic growth and exploration of novel sonic territories. Thematically, the album delves into the complexities of contemporary existence, addressing anxiety, nostalgia, and the peculiarities of modern life. Palomo aptly captures the essence of our tumultuous world, describing it as a “crazy place” through the medium of his music and poignant lyrics.
