Amaarae: The Angel You Don’t Know [Platoon]

The Angel You Don’t Know is the debut full-length project from Ghanaian-American artist, rapper, and producer Amaarae. The 14-track release features contributions from Cruel Santino, Princess Adjua, Kojey Radical, Moliy, and others. The Angel You Don’t Know also includes Amaarae’s “LEAVE ME ALONE” and “FANCY.”

“I strived to colour outside of the afro-pop parameters and re-define for myself what it means to create African music,” Amaarae said in a press release. “Sonically, visually and spiritually my message is stronger than ever.”

The Angel You Don’t Know follows Amaarae’s 2017 EP Passionfruit Summers. Read Pitchfork’s Rising feature “Get to Know Amaarae, Who’s Expanding the Sound of Afropop.”

Ana Roxanne: Because of a Flower [Kranky]

Ana Roxanne’s Because of a Flower follows the Los Angeles–based ambient artist’s 2019 debut ~~~. Written and recorded over the span of five years, the album is inspired in part by Roxanne’s experiences as an intersex person. She weaves together drones, soft drums, and layers of vocal loops to summon ambient atmospheres.
