3. ‘Deliver Us From Ervil’


1. The Weeknd

Four years removed from his last run of shows, the Weeknd finally embarks on his After Hours til

Dawn Tour this summer, kicking off in Toronto in July. Spanning 19 dates in North America, the tour is Abel Tesfaye’s first-ever stadium run and will support his two latest critically acclaimed albums, After Hours and Dawn FM.

2. ‘The Islander: My Life in Music and Beyond’

In this new memoir, Chris Blackwell looks back on the seminal moments he witnessed in music history, including the recording of Bob Marley and the Wailers’ Catch a Fire.

He also writes about his childhood and adventures in Jamaica — you can feel his love of the island, its people and music, and all he owes to the place.

From Rolling Stone contributo­r Jesse Hyde comes a true-crime deep dive about a group of fundamenta­list polygamist Mormons who headed down to Mexico in the early 20th century to start their own society. (So far, so Mormon.) But after a power struggle ensues, everything goes off the rails.

4. ‘Reservatio­n Dogs’ Season Two

For the second season of Hulu’s sly, surreal, beautiful, and silly tale of four indigenous teens coming of age in rural Oklahoma, there’s talk of reversing curses, grandmothe­rs who aren’t really grandmothe­rs, and the perpetual hope of running away to California.

5. Lee Bains and the Glory Fires’ ‘Old-Time Folks’

The latest from Alabama singer-songwriter Lee Bains is a roots-punk masterpiec­e: a concept album about the past halfmillen­nium of collective

Southeaste­rn resistance, from the Muscogee tribe to BLM uprisings.

6. ‘Fire of Love’

Documentar­ian Sara Dosa gives us the greatest lava-fueled love story ever told, recounting the romance of Katia and Maurice Krafft. The two French scientists met, fell for each other, and traveled the world together, all of it spurred on by their mutual obsession: volcanoes.

7. ‘Nope’

Jordan Peele has been mum on details regarding his new horror movie. All we really know is that there’s a mysterious, menacing object that shows up in the sky above the small town where Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer, and Steven Yuen live. But the Get Out and Us director has said that he wants to get audiences to say the title word as much as possible — which suggests he’s got something uniquely terrifying up his sleeve.

8. Bad Bunny’s “Ojitos Lindos”

The most sparkling highlight of Bad Bunny’s Un Verano Sin Ti is this sweet and breezy duet with Li Saumet of Colombian electro-pop stars Bomba Estéreo. Voices intertwini­ng over languorous horns and romantic guitars, they don’t just sing about the rush of a new summer love, they embody it.

9. Ezra Furman’s ‘All of Us in Flames’

With influences from Sixties girl groups to Bob Dylan’s Eighties records, the singer-songwriter wrote the album during the early days of the pandemic, meshing growling vocals with songs about building communitie­s in the ashes of a hostile world. “I wanted to make songs for use by threatened communitie­s, and particular­ly the ones I belong to: trans people and Jews,” she said.
