Blood Orange: Freetown Sound

It’s a flawed love-letter to the '80s, to the people who just want to dance, to the people who feel marginalized, to the people who feel oppressed. Given recent events, it’s an uplifting album in embarrassing times.

Carly Rae Jepsen: Kiss

Forget Jepsen's monster smash "Call Me Maybe" for a moment (we know, it's hard). Kiss is a remarkably strong, well-made pop album that works entirely because of Jepsen's talent of a singer. Also, she samples Sam Cooke and the result is amazingly not terrible.
