#NewMusicFriday: BabyTron, Bob Weir & Margo Price

Bin Reaper 3: New Testament is Detroit rapper BabyTron’s latest album. The 26 track body of work features contributions from the likes of Rico Nasty and Lil Yachty among others. Bin Reaper 3: New Testament is the follow up to Bin Reaper 3: Old Testament, which was released late last year.  

Bob Weir's latest release marks the monumental 50th anniversary of his solo debut, Ace. Ace (50th Anniversary Edition) is a remastered, new mix of the original album and features a live performance from last year's New York City’s Radio City Music Hall shows where he performed alongside his band, Bobby Weir & Wolf Bros featuring The Wolfpack, a string and brass quintet, pedal steel player Barry Sless, and special guests Tyler Childers and Brittney Spencer. 

Following her 2020 release, That’s How Rumours Get Started, Margo Price drops her new album, Strays. The body was self produced alongside Jonathan Wilson and features contributions from Mike Campbell, Lucius and Sharon Van Etten. On her writing process, Price says, “there comes a point where you just have to say, ‘I’m going to be here, I’m going to enjoy it, and I’m not going to put so much stock into checking the boxes for everyone else”.

Rozi Plain is back with her fifth album, Prize. The 10 track work was co-produced by Rozi Plain and Jamue Whitby Coles of her band This is The Kit. The record was mostly recorded in France at a beachside studio and features avant-jazz saxophonists Alabaster DePlume and Cole Pulice, harp player Serafina Steer and violinist Emma Smith (both of Bas Jan), singer Yoshino Shigihara (Yama Warashi) and synth manipulator Dan Leavers aka Danalogue (The Comet Is Coming) on top
