If you don't have the time to keep up with all the new music that's available, take heart: we've got the perfect solution.

Every week, our music experts come in to talk about the best new tunes in one short segment. This week, Oliver Wang shares his picks. 

Artist: Tyler, The Creator
Album: Flower Boy
Song: November

Oliver's review: 

"Tyler, the gives-no-fs, chaos agent we formerly knew with Odd Future has given way to a delightfully and surprisingly introspective artist on this bright, sunny, well-crafted on his latest album." 

Artist: Sean Price feat. Prodigy and Styles P
Album:  Imperius Rex
Song: The 3 Lyrical Ps

Oliver's review: 

"There's an obvious, morbid quality to this song. Not only did Sean Price pass a year ago, but Prodigy, of Mobb Deep, just passed away the other month, so this song is really like hearing some voices from the grave, but at least it reminds us of their former greatness."

Artist: Gil Scott Heron
Album: The Revolution Will Not Be Televised

Oliver's review:

"This deluxe reissue of the late poet's best-known album includes half a dozen bonus tracks, including the original, spoken-word version of the title song. Even though the original album is 40-plus years old, it still sounds prescient. Or perhaps, sadly, still right on time."
