An inept talk show host—one Tracee Ellis Ross perhaps borrowing inspiration from Zach Galifianakis’s spoof interview series, Between Two Ferns—introduces Tyler the Creator’s act. From here on, it’s his show. Standing...

SIXTY Listens: Georgia “About Work the Dancefloor”

If you like the propulsive beats of, say, Robyn, and you appreciate the ’80s incantations of Stranger Things, you’ll likely be able to get down with this new track from Georgia. A pulsing electronic stutter and the UK-based artist’s soaring vocals make for the precise sound one requires when...
