Kamasi Washington - Heaven and Earth

 

This is such an intensely spiritual album and yet I don't think it's even been mentioned on watmm yet, I love what this guy is doing at the moment.  Favorite track is Show Us The Way - first listen I was like WTF, this is the exact same piano motif as on Change of the Guard (opener to the Epic) - ever since it's been a cri everytiem situation

 

Also enjoyed this year in no odor

 

Appleblim - Life in a Laser

Dabrye - 3/3

Martyn - Voids

Blawan - Wet Will Always Dry

MBM - Impossibru Star
