6. CD: Late Nights & Early Mornings, Marsha Ambrosius
Formerly of Grammy-nominated neo-soul duo Floetry, the Liverpudlian chanteuse drops her debut solo album March 1. Seductive R&B jams include sassy breakup anthem “I Hope She Cheats on You (With a Basketball Player)” and new single “Far Away,” which, inspired by friendships, is accompanied by a video that depicts a gay bashing and subsequent suicide. Also listen for her sweet cover of Portishead’s “Sour Times.”
5. BOOK: I <3 Boy and Seth
In I <3 Boy, photographer J. Yatrofsky — the J. is for Jessica, surprisingly — celebrates the androgynous beauty of slim, mostly nude dudes shot with minimalist moxie in New York apartments. Launched with a February 26 event at New York’s Printed Matter Inc. and sold at PinupsMag.com, Pinups creator Christopher Schulz’s Seth slyly showcases beguiling black-and-white nude sketches of a subject resembling pre-diet Seth Rogen.
