In this far-reaching new book, he charts how the fledgling recording industry's worldwide search for "exotic" new sounds to market in the 1920s encouraged musicians from New Orleans to Rio to Cairo to invent new styles that allowed their listeners to hear and imagine a post-colonial future.

Tierra Whack – “Link”

Three years ago, the Philadelphia rapper and singer Tierra Whack made a name for herself with the 15-song, 15-minute visual album Whack World. That project established Whack as a bright, utopian absurdist with a wild visual imagination, and everything that she’d done since has supported that idea. Whack hasn’t made an album after Whack World. Instead, she’s been releasing music in single-track and two-song chunks, like last year’s “Dora” or the one-two punch of “Peppers & Onions” and “feel good.” And she’s made sure that the images match the music.
