New Music Friday: The best albums out May 3

On the May 3 episode of New Music Friday, NPR Music's Hazel Cills and WRTI's Nate Chinen discuss the week's essential new albums, including Radical Optimism, from the dance-pop superstar Dua Lipa. The songs on Radical Optimism are mostly in the vein of Dua Lipa's earlier work, but that itself might be reason to keep a militantly sunny attitude: A parade of hits from her last album, Future Nostalgia, proved to have incredible staying power — "Levitating" hung around in the top 10 of Billboard's Hot 100 chart for nearly a year — and she contributed to last year's cultural juggernaut Barbie with "Dance the Night." Still, Hazel and Nate say the new album offers hints of a few surprising artistic developments in her sound. Radical Optimism isn't the only album out this week that demands attention. New records by the inimitable folk songwriter Jessica Pratt and the always ambitious jazz maestro and saxophonist Kamasi Washington focus their own sounds in new and highly rewarding ways. Featured Albums: • Dua Lipa, 'Radical Optimism' • Jessica Pratt, 'Here in the Pitch' • Kamasi Washington, 'Fearless Movement' Other notable albums out May 3: • Willow, 'empathogen' • Mdou Moctar, 'Funeral for Justice' • Steph Richards, 'Power Vibe' • Charlotte Day Wilson, 'Cyan Blue' • Luke Stewart's Silt Trio, 'Unknown Rivers' • 4batz, 'u made me a st4r' Learn more about sponsor message choices: podcastchoices.com/adchoices NPR Privacy Policy

The greatest Boleros of all-time

Nothing captures the agony of love, loss, hope and redemption like the song form known across all of Latin America: the bolero. Last December, UNESCO declared the bolero "an intangible cultural heritage of humanity" and "an indispensable part of the Latin American sentimental song." And given that Valentine's Day is coming up, Felix Contreras and Anamaria Sayre did something special this week, in honor of this news: they asked some of their favorite artists and show listeners to share their most-loved boleros, and break down exactly what makes them so special. Join Felix and Ana as they laugh, cry and sing a little to the love songs of the ages. And be sure to check out the playlists we made for this episode, feature Ana and Felix's picks, as well as the selections from featured artists and listeners, on Spotify and Apple Music.

New Music Friday: The best albums out Jan. 26 (and why they deserve reviews)

There's plenty about Wall of Eyes, the new album by the British rock trio The Smile, to remind you of Radiohead, the band with which The Smile shares Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood. But there's something about The Smile that resists feeling like Radiohead redux, and on this week's episode Ann Powers, Tom Huizenga and Sheldon Pearce get to the bottom of what makes Wall of Eyes so satisfying on its own terms. Plus: Discussion of a week's worth of great albums leads to a conversation about the state of music criticism, which took a blow last week when the long-standing, much-beloved, occasionally-hated website Pitchfork was folded into the men's magazine GQ and much of its staff laid off. Featured Albums for January 26, 2024: 1. Patricia Kopatchinksaja, Reto Bieri, Polina Leschenko — Take 3 2. Benny the Butcher — Everybody Can't Go 3. Katy Kirby — Blue Raspberry 4. The Smile — Wall of Eyes
