It’s been a busy week with a lot of releases – I spent so much time listening to so much different music that I only had time to give two a full review – but make sure to check out the other new releases listed at the bottom of this post!
Imagine: You manage a popular rock club in London. You book an up-and-coming rock star with a flair for the dramatic. He tells you the show is all but sold out. The day of the performance comes, the band takes the stage, and the show begins – but nobody’s there.
Today, I want to share with you the story of the biggest rockstar you’ve never heard of – Jered “Threatin” Eames.
Another week, another set of albums. This time around, we’ve got Justin Bieber, EDEN, and Tame Impala.
Dreamville Records is a record label founded by North Carolina rapper J. Cole. Since its conception in 2007, it’s had plenty of time to grow – setting the stage for their triumphant 2019.
Time for a more personal look at why I write about music, and music’s impact on me.
D Smoke, Sepultura, Denzel Curry, and Kenny Beats all deliver excellent albums this week.
It’s a very radio-friendly week with releases from Lil Wayne, Saint PHNX, and Kesha.
The power of a good album cover can’t be overstated. It’s the first thing listeners see and remains present on all platforms, from vinyl to CDs to streams. More than that, It’s a chance for musicians to develop their persona visually in addition to their natural sonic development. Some musicians choose to do this by using artwork based on the same themes as the album, some use it to show the next step in their evolution as an artist.
This week we’ve only got two albums – but both were great. Novelists brings a colorful and energizing metalcore record while Andy Shauf delivers an incredible storytelling experience
