New Music Friday - The High Note with Shaun Smith

It’s already May and this week’s New Music Friday for May 3, 2024 comes on the eve of the annual Star Wars holiday so let the force be strong with this week’s list.

Jazz enthusiasts can rejoice as Kamasi Washington returns with his saxophone-rich “Fearless Movement.”

Indie pop will appreciate Camera Obscura’s latest album, “Look to the East, Look to the West.”

Jessica Pratt’s “Here In The Pitch” offers a dive into a more introspective realm.

Dua Lipa infuses the pop scene with her vibrant new album “Radical Optimism,” promising beats that are both uplifting and invigorating.

As always, the entire list of new albums released today, Friday, May 3, 2024 is below in no particular order. My most antipcated albums are in bold.

Let me know what you’re listening to in the comments below and on social media @highnoteblog.
