Kelela is fast becoming one of my favourite artists out there right now. Both 'Cut 4 Me' and 'Hallucinogen' mixtapes/EP's were wonderful so the news that her debut LP album is coming as soon as May gives me so much joy.

Here is a little introductory video for her debut album, including clips of two new songs which sound as heavenly as expected.

I am SO excited for this. I've loved pretty much everything I have heard from her so far (my favourite being 'The High'), so a full length studio album is what is needed now.

I've started listening to Kelela with "Go All Night" track. She's gorgeous. New wave of R&B. I'm stoked of her upcoming album.

For sure, you need to get listening.

For me, her best songs up to 'LMK' are 'Bank Head', 'Rewind', 'All The Way Down', 'A Message' and 'A Breath Away' with Clams Casino. Maybe would be good songs to start on, but everything she touches is gold.

Thank you so much for the recommendations, I will get on it tomorrow I think *.* (also, reading that Arca is involved with the production of some of her previous material makes me even more excited to listen to it!)

Loving "LMK"! Radio 1 just played it and plugged album/supporting tours. Hoping they playlist it soon. I need to listen to more of her music - what would you recommend? biggrin.gif

'Blue Light' and 'Waitin' have been uploaded to Spotify early.

'Blue Light' is f***ing spellbinding. Honestly, the production is so futuristic and I adore her distorted vocals so much. Really not far off of 'LMK' levels. 'Waitin' is also fantastic, getting late Janet vibes; definitely my least favourite of the four tracks we have thus far though.

Anyway, less than 24 hours until this out in full. Can't believe that it is about to come, feels so surreal given the fact I have been waiting for her debut album since late 2013 cry.gif

OUT NOW yaaassss

gonna do a 1st listen rate as I am too excited not to.


10.0 Frontline (that dirty beat in the chorus gonna get me forever)
08.5 Waitin
09.0 Take Me Apart (the production on this is so futuristic wow)
08.0 Enough (very arresting; probably will take a few more listens before all melodies start showing themselves)
08.5 Jupiter
10.0 Better (she sounds f***ing stunning, beautiful ballad)
11.0 LMK
07.5 Truth or Dare (production is a bit jarring at beginning but all comes together at the end)
08.0 S.O.S.
10.0 Blue Light (BLOWING me away)
10.0 Onanon (her vocal delivery on this is everything. that outro OMG)
10.0 Turn to Dust (the way this plays with the idea of building a song throughout, fuuuuck. don't play with me like this)
09.5 Bluff (so wish this was a full song. only not getting a 10 because I need more)
10.0 Altadena (saving the most personal moment for the album closer, lovely slight change of mood to end on; one of her best songs ever already)


This took my expectations and absolutely exceeded them in every way possible. Stunning record from start to finish. It definitely gets even better as it goes on though; that run of the last 5 tracks is unbelievable. It has everything; club bangers, personal ballads, futuristic crazy production and absolutely spellbinding vocals throughout. I am so glad she took her time to work on this for so long because it is truly an amazing record.
