New music: Chance The Rapper, Wampire, Salvia Plath & Lauryn Hill


The best new music/artist picks of the last week. As published in today’s Day & Night Magazine. Follow Day & Night on Twitter or Facebook

Chance The Rapper

Hailing from the same city as Kanye, the music this Chicago rapper is releasing also echoes some of West’s early material. His new mixtape Acid Rap is showcases a sound cut from soul, funk and jazz, particularly the “acid jazz” variety.


A Portland duo with a penchant for psychedelic pop music made with guitars, Rocky Tinder and Eric Phipps’ debut album Curiosity sounds like a lot of hazy indie fun.

Lauryn Hill

The formerly troubled Fugees singer and solo artist (who was just sentenced to jail time) returned with Neurotic Society, a hyper-fast dizzying rap track that proves Hill still has the considerable fire in her belly.

Salvia Plath

Summery laid back guitar music is the dominant vibe this week with the new awkwardly-titled project from Baltimore musician Michael Collins providing blissful lo-fi pop on new single House Of Leaves.
