October compilation 2017 this [2017-11-11]

Many soul and r&b tracks to like. The album by Jhene is pretty stable and way above the standard. Everything SZA does seems to work. It's been too long since we heard from Keyshia. H.E.R. is my favourite this month, by far.

September compilation 2017 this [2017-09-10]

Lots of good r&b and soul this month. Tove Lo has to be the least cautious swedish artist, especially when it comes to videos. Nice new single from Banks. Jessie J is a surprise (in a good way), now far from mainstream pop. Plenty of good songs on the Jhene Aiko album; going to the best albums of 2017 list.

August compilation 2017 this [2017-09-10]

Struggled with this month's compilation. Not many new albums out after summer. Raises the question - where do we get music news today? Certainly not from Swedish newspapers, only a few specialized music magazines still around. I buy most my music from iTunes but music is (for whatever reason) Apple's weakest point, by far. The recommendations in iTunes are so bad it makes me wonder... Spotify's weekly recommendation playlist works though. Pitchforsk reviews are alright but I'm not a fan of the format.
