* Jupiter & Okwess Na Kozonga Na Kozonga Everloving For their latest, this Congolese band, fronted by Jupiter Bokondji (he/his), headed to LA to work with Mario Caldato, Jr.

* Hand Habits Just to Hear You Fun House Saddle Creek Hand Habits, the project of Los Angeles-based musician Meg Duffy (they/them), is back with their new album Fun House - the most ambitious Hand Habits album to date.

* Elia y Elizabeth Mis 32 Dientes ¡Alegria! Vampisoul Second of two albums from Colombian sisters Elia and Elizabeth Fleta originally released on Codiscos-Zeida in 1973, long out of print but now remastered and re-released by Vampisoul. Backed by Jimmy Salcedo and la Onda Tres, this is an absolute delight. Groovy, swinging, late 60s/early 70s pop w/ tropical Colombian vibes, psychedelia, soul, mellow folk rock, and more in the mix.
