    Thanks for posting this each week, you four. Always helps me find the things I missed reddit posts or similar for the week. The genre tags really helpful as well.

    Another to add would be SNBRN- Solé. I'd consider the genre to be Bass House.

    Some of my thoughts on the albums I listened to this week.

    The Chainsmokers - World War Joy...Call You Mine EP (Electropop) Song.link

    I know they get a lot of shit for being incredibly formulaic, but I have never actually listened to them before so thought it was about time I did. Everything was catchy and reasonably enjoyable. I can definitely see where the formulaic criticism comes from, but isn't all mainstream electronic pop similar in that regard? It was not as bad as I expected.

    Daniel Wohl - État (Electroacoustic, Modern Classical) Song.link

    Never listened to this artist before either but the genres caught my eye. It kind of reminded me a bit of Aphex Twin at points, but was overall much more ambient/experimental. Very interesting and I really enjoyed it as background noise while I did other things. I will probably try meditating to this at some point too, since I think it would be good for that.

    Miley Cyrus - She Is Coming EP (Contemporary R&B, Electropop) Song.link

    Again, never really listened to anything of hers other than her Jolene cover (which I absolutely love) and songs caught randomly while listening to the radio, so I decided to give this EP a try. It was much better than I expected. The cameo by Ghostface Killah took me by complete surprise, and while it was great it really didn't fit with the song it was included at the end of. The track featuring RuPaul was great. Overall, I actually quite enjoyed this EP.

    Kishi Bashi - Omoiyari (Chamber Pop, Indie Folk) Song.link

    I really enjoy Art/Chamber Pop and Indie Folk and this album was no exception. It was really lovely and remarkably pleasant to listen to. Simple yet beautiful instrumentation and echoey singing in harmony. What's not to love? I even listened to a few other albums from Kishi Bashi after it and they were equally as good.

    lennixx - Split By EP (Alternative R&B) Song.link

    The awesome EP Cover caught my eye and I really like R&B so decided to give it a listen. It was far too simplistic and stripped down for my taste, but the singing was solid and soulful. Not bad.

    Sinkane - Dépaysé (Afrobeat) Song.link

    <3 most things Afro but this was not great. The backing band was absolutely fantastic and all the tracks were pretty funky... but the singer was incredibly weak and nasally, but not in a good way (as that sometimes can be). Because of that, sadly I think I would have enjoyed it more as an instrumental album.

    p.s. While not an album or EP, Bon Iver released a couple new tracks yesterday, U (Man Like) and Hey, Ma, that are worth listening to, IMO. Thanks for sharing them in Discord, @vivaria.
