Friendos: Diary Playlist 5 (May 6-12)

Plucked from History’s Dustbin (best recent purchase of an old record): I didn’t buy an old record this week–wah!!!

Grower, Not a Shower (old record I already owned that’s risen in my esteem): I have to admit, Migos’ Culture is 30% better on the third play. I’m starting to decipher their little quips.

Encore, Encore! (album I played at least twice this week): Cypress Hill; Charles Mingus’ The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady.

Through the Cracks (sweet record I forgot to write about): Mt. Eerie’s A Crow Looked at Me. Sweet? I don’t know. A one-of-a-kind record that I really like, but I gotta think on it a bit.
