Childqueen by Kadhja Bonet falls into several neo- genres but stands really tall on the strength of Ms. Bonet's vocal jazz skills. If I were to over-simplify things I'd say this is what you'd get if you made a Diana Ross, Family Stone, and Esperanza Spalding supergroup.

This is some really pleasant ambient. The 1st track's title "Headphone Holiday" pretty much sums it up.

Chelsea Wolfe makes heavy spooky gothy music. It does not "slap" as the kids say. But, if you need something to play while you're plotting revenge (something involving poison) then her latest album will definitely bring that mood.

Nao's 1st album is infectious super funky electro r&b. This should cheer you up.
For All We Know by Nao
There's a new Maya Jane Coles EP out! She delivers another fine collection of dark house that I know I'll be playing a lot in the coming weeks.
Waves & Whirlwinds - EP by Maya Jane Coles
Look, I'm not generally a fan of instrumental hip-hop because so often tracks are memorable for the work of the MC's flow over a great beat. Clams Casino elevates the genre by adding lyrical instrumentation that does more than provide a hook. This album was hard to come by since its 2011 release but its available to stream now.
On this pre-election day please enjoy some soothing electronic sounds. It's like digital beach music.

If you're a fan of Tangerine Dreams' Phaedra then you'll love this album
Oh my goodness Karin Park is back!
A new Joy Formidable album and it rocks as hard as the first 2.
From the liner notes:
Recognized by genre aficionados as one of the greatest singers and most riveting stage presences in soul music, Jackie Shane has remained largely unknown outside Toronto, where her career briefly flowered in the 1960s. Ms. Shane is a star without parallel—a pioneer of transgender rights born in a male body, living her entire life as a woman at a time when to do so seemed unthinkable.
sitting somewhere between Ride and slowdive on the shoegaze spectrum The Prids make some nice sounding tunes.
JWZ mixtape 198. I've been listening to these for years and he never fails to find interesting stuff.
I don't know why I think of Jesus & Mary Chain as Fall music but I do.
