New Music – Alienation

More of an eclectic ensemble than any sort of progressive genre piece, KAYTRANADA’s 2019 release BUBBA is a dance-heavy groove that continues to illustrate a bop-fest of adaptability. Perfect for the after-hours clubs of a dream-phased city, KAYTRANADA is able to encapsulate alienation within…
