Time and Place
One of the great shifts of the streaming era–aside from getting new sounds into your headphones almost as soon as they're made—is the dissolution of borders between indie and R&B. Mellow but adventurous, the tracks here (many of them self-produced and self-released) have as much to do with the expressivity of soul as the left-field subversions of “alternative”—music that invites you in but still keeps things a little weird and abstract. We update this playlist with new songs every day. If you like something, add it to your library.
