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.
