When the rapper Earl Sweatshirt locks into his signature circulate, he has a method of creating language sound viscous, as if the phrases are simply dribbling out of his mouth. On this monitor from “Voir Dire,” a collaborative album made with the producer the Alchemist, he’s effortlessly dexterous; and sure, it contains a pattern from the late, nice Los Angeles Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully.

In 2012, Girl Gaga appeared onstage with the Rolling Stones to lend her vocals to a dwell rendition of “Gimme Shelter.” “Candy Sounds of Heaven,” the bluesy, fireworks-display climax of the Stones’ upcoming album, “Hackney Diamonds,” appears to choose up proper the place that efficiency left off.

A tricky pay attention, but additionally a cathartic one.
