Listen: Calvin Harris' "Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1"

Another Friday, another big list of releases from Beach House (B-Sides and Rarities), Baio (Man of the World), Floating Points (Reflections - Mojave Desert), Washed Out (Mister Yellow), JAY-Z (4:44), and Calvin Harris. (On a side note, you should also check out Cigarettes After Sex's new self-titled LP, if you haven't already).

For the Scottish DJ, Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 is something of a career shift from the kind of EDM bops that made him a household name. It's ridiculously feature-packed, and even if there is nothing quite like Slide and Rollin, the songs are catchy and fun, echoing a summery hip-hop vibe all throughout. Jessie Reyez-sung album closer Hard to Love in particular is a highlight, her voice beautifully complementing the dreamy, languid tune. Stream the album below (or via Spotify/ YouTube) -
