Right after releasing her relentlessly catchy debut one, “Whip My Hair” in 2010 (when she was just 9 years aged), the singer and rapper Willow went on to release more than a 50 percent-dozen albums and EPs of mostly uptempo pop and dance new music. But on her most current album, Lately I Experience Anything, the now 20-calendar year-old artist gets loud and electric with a assortment of ’90s-affected guitar rock, motivated by Wicked Wisdom, the nu-steel band her mother, Jada Pinkett-Smith, used to be in. We open up this week’s present with Lately I Really feel Every thing, and discuss about Willow’s exponential expansion as an artist.

Also on the show: the hugely expected new album from Clairo, the oh-so-’80s “sob rock” of John Mayer, a posthumous release from Alice Coltrane and extra. NPR Music’s Felix Contreras joins contributors Christina Lee, Cyrena Touros and WXPN’s John Morrison, alongside with NPR Music’s Lars Gotrich, Stephen Thompson and host Robin Hilton to share their picks for the best albums and EPs out on July 16.
