He just put a classic on top of a classic!!!!

(to be continued...)

Please don't count this one out because it's labelled as a "Deluxe" version. Pink Siifu's follow-up to last year's mind-blowing, "NEGRO DELUXE" is just as creative, unique and abrasive as the original. This "deluxe" version works completely on it's own although I'm not sure you'll get much out of this if you didn't enjoy "NEGRO".

That being said...I FUCKING LOVED THE ORIGINAL ... read more

AJ Tracey's latest album could've benefitted from cutting some filler, however "Flu Game" is an admirably entertaining and charismatic pop rap collection for one of the biggest up&coming names in the UK Hip Hop scene.

During the peak of Grime, AJ Tracey's early EPs were largely overlooked. Apart from some notable early hits like his collab with Dave on "Thiago Silva", AJ Tracey had to wait until 2019 to fully blow up. His self-titled debut LP wouldn't only be ... read more

Home Is Where continue to show me that they are the most promising new band coming out of this HUGE new revival wave of "midwest" emo.

Seriously, guys. There are SO many intriguing Midwest emo bands bubbling under the surface recently. Just in the last week, I've heard projects from Barely Civil, Camp Trash, Oolong and Hospital Bracelet.The list goes on and on. These are REALLY new bands, like I'm saying their debut projects came out or 2019 or something. I'm not sure exactly why ... read more

Eh. This new LoneMoon project doesn't get anywhere close to the highs of her past two projects.

LoneMoon is a Oklahoma City artist who has transitioned from some pretty corny electronic music to some very endearing pop rap and cloud rap towards the end of the 2010's. I really loved her 2019 effort, "Andromeda". Like...I LOVED THAT PROJECT. Speaking critically, I can't explain why exactly... I just think the combination of some really creative and imaginative production choices ... read more

Woah. Concrete Castles is back with a bang.

I consistently try to follow the different musicians who are part of this AOTY community, it's always fun to listen to independent artists. I spend entire Sunday afternoons just browsing the depths of BandCamp. Anyways, I won't lie, I hadn't been thoroughly impressed by an AOTY album until I stumbled upon ConcreteCastles' "Onanon".

What a project! When I initially gave that album a high rating, I thought for sure I was overrating because ... read more

This is exactly what I wanted from the first installment of "Slime Language".

Thugger and the rest of Young Stoner Life came through with some exquisitely colorful and eccentric bangers and string them together effectively in a monstrous 75-minute tracklist.

Dude, this is exactly what I love about this group of artists, spear-headed by the pioneering madness of Young Thug himself. These artists instinctively approach music with a carefree mindset which leads to some of the most ... read more

About

THANKS FOR 350!

Hey there!

I'm a Brazilian-American film/basketball & philosophy enthusiast currently in Denmark in a boarding school, studying for the SATs. No words can describe how much music is important to me. Hopefully, my reviews can try to do so.

OPEN TO ANY RECS OR QUESTIONS!
