Eve Tumor, Glory to the Lord who chews but does not consume (or simply, hot between the worlds)

Their transformation from an underground artist combining noise, ambient and loops into a futuristic glam rock extraterrestrial has been nothing short of a revelation. After the breakout in 2020 Heaven for a tortured mind (#6 on our year-end album list) Yves Tumor builds on his dynasty with Praise be to the Lord who chews…not just a reclamation of rock, but a sweeping celebration of how the Black Genius fueled so much of what is challenging in modern music.

100 GEC, 10,000 GEC

In the time since 100 gecs released their debut album 1000 GEC in 2019, an entire subgenre known as hyperpop has come and gone, its birth inspired by the exuberant style of Laura Less and Dylan Brady — it’s channeling the energy of millions of open YouTube tabs and fueled by a buffet of gas station food. 10,000 GEC arrives in a very different world from its predecessor, but the GECs are eager to prove that their art isn’t as fleeting as the sugar rushes it evokes.

EST Gee may no longer be a freshman, but the Kentucky rapper has lost none of the hunger that made him a star and sought-after collaborator. A project he billed as “not for the industry,” CRAZY fittingly, it doesn’t feature pop-friendly rappers, instead sticking to Boosie Badass and Young Scooter. Gee shared singles from the project throughout the year: “If I Stop Now,” “Blow Up,” “Undefeated” and “25 Min Freestyle.”

Tei Shi, A bad feeling EP

The Colombian-Canadian artist presents her new six-song EP as a fresh start. It’s hard to argue with that based on the retro pop crackle of ‘¿QUIEN TE MANDA?’, the after-hours sensuality of ‘BAD PREMONITION’ and the defiant Little Dragon-meets-Aaliyah stomp of ‘GRIP’. “I went through another difficult time where I lost control of my work and my life,” Tay Shi wrote in a press statement, “but eventually I found my confidence and focus again. It took me 2.5 years to get over it, but the songs I wrote during that time helped me remember who I am as an artist.”
