Anderson .Paak's Malibu is easily one of the best soul/R&B/hip hop/funk albums released this decade. The multi-instrumentalist is so good at setting moods and painting vivid scenes, and this album treads so much musical ground seemingly effortlessly. He's currently making a freezing Melbourne Winter feel like high summer. He's supposedly releasing TWO albums in the second half of this year, and so this, his most recent album from 2015, has re-entered household rotation in eager anticipation. His talent, musical ambition and musical breadth reminds me of a young Prince. Personal highlights: The Bird (man, that groove), Heart Don't Stand a Chance, Put Me Thru, Am I Wrong, Parking Lot, Come Down...just the whole thing, really. If you haven't given him a go yet, get on it already.
