“Igor. This is not Bastard. This is not Goblin. This is not Wolf. This is not Cherry Bomb. This is not Flower Boy. This is Igor.  Pronounced EEE-GOR.” These were the opening lines from a message that Tyler, The Creator delivered to his fans leading up to the release of IGOR. It couldn’t be anymore […]

Artist: Mac DeMarco Album: Here Comes The Cowboy Release Date: May 10, 2019  Label: Mac’s Record Label  Rating: 3/5  There he goes again, the Viceroy chiefing, gap-toothed, Jonathan Richman inspired, jizz-jazz rocker. Mac DeMarco knows damn well that he’s built an image that is both admired and joked about. The admiration stems from the fact […]

I will always associate Big Thief with a very specific time in my life. For a few weeks during last year’s winter break, I worked for the Department of Residence Services, doing various odd jobs like helping residents retrieve forgotten items from their dorm rooms and shuttling documents around campus. It was an easy job […]

Steve Lacy- “N Side” (Single) Smooth with “in your face” sensualism are the words that sum up this cut. Singer/guitarist Steve Lacy has been relatively silent since his debut project, Steve Lacy’s Demos, which was released in 2017. A short collection of songs, yes, but takes such as “Dark Red”, “Some” & “Ryd” were home runs. […]

Title: Psychodrama Artist: Dave Record Label: Neighbourhood Release Date: March 7, 2019 Rating: 3/5 It’s crazy to think that Dave is only 20 years old, but it’s true. The UK rapper and occasional grime MC rose up in the scene as a teenager with popular freestyle videos, successful mixtapes and collaborations with huge artists including […]

Artist: Lil Pump Album: Harverd Dropout Release Date: February 22, 2018 Label: Tha Lights Global/Warner Bros. Rating: 1.5/5   Don’t let the rating fool you. Lil Pump is a beast. The Florida based rapper has been soaking up the limelight since his big breakout in 2017. His outlandish yet playful debut album solidified his foothold […]

Title: Assume Form Artist: James Blake Record Label: Polydor Records Release Date: January 18, 2019 Rating: 4/5 For all the people who view James Blake as a “sad boy,” Assume Form is a slap in the face. But it’s like getting slapped in the face by the warm side of an extra-soft pillow, because this […]

Artist: Deerhunter Album: Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared? Release Date: January 18, 2019 Label: 4AD Rating: 3/5 Deerhunter crafted a record that is a melancholic dream, accompanied by words that are heavy on the heart with its brash honesty and beautifully haunting melodies. Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared? is the eighth studio album from the […]

Title: A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships Artist: The 1975 Label: Dirty Hit Records Release Date: November 30, 2018 Rating:         The first time I listened to The 1975’s new album, “A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships”, I was extremely disappointed. Following the massive success of their second album, the band had a lot […]

Title: Glory Sound Prep Artist: Jon Bellion Label: Capitol Records Release Date: November 9, 2018 Rating:         One thing’s for sure, Jon Bellion hasn’t lost his sound. That’d be too hard to do. After disappearing for two years, Bellion’s sophomore album “Glory Sound Prep” (also introduced to the media before its release as GSP) […]
