In a similar vein to their 2018 EP following “Broken Machine”, Nothing But Thieves have once again released an EP not even a year following their 2020 album “Moral Panic”. Being billed as a successor to that album, I was expecting more electronic and pop influenced tunes about modern society. However, “Moral Panic II” gives a left hook by only being similar thematically, instead choosing to go a much heavier route musically.

While “Moral Panic” ... read more

Remember when Pitchfork shared a link to a monkey pissing in its mouth instead of formally review Jet’s “Shine On”? Sure, it was in poor taste, but honestly - mood.

Coming nearly three years after the release of “You Won’t Get What You Want”, the incredible noise-rock masterpiece from his band Daughters, and more than a year’s worth of delays due to the coronavirus pandemic, vocalist, lyricist, and poet Alexis Marshall has finally released his debut album. Needless to say, all eyes are on him to see if this LP will actually live up to the hype, not just because of the context of this release but also the fact that the question ... read more

After spending years as the lead singer, songwriter, guitarist, and pianist of stadium rock band Muse, Matt Bellamy has finally released a collection of solo work compiled of covers of famous songs and reinterpretations of the band’s earlier work, as well as some lose songs he’s released throughout the recent years. Being that Muse is one of my all time favorite bands since when I was a kid, as well as Bellamy having a great influence on my music compositions since I began, I was ... read more

Nothing is sacred in this industry. I pray that this is the last time his label exploits him like this.

People were disappointed by this? I actually liked this more than their last album. Though my opinions are always terrible, so don’t trust a word I say.

I completely missed the breakout single “Dance Monkey” by Australian singer-songwriter Tones And I, and the only reason why I’m going out of my way to review her debut is because a) there seems to be a real industry push for her and b) there also seems to be a lot of strong opinions about her. After giving “Welcome to the Madhouse” (as well as “Dance Monkey”) a listen, I honestly can’t think of any reason why people would fine anything about this ... read more

I really don’t know anything about KSI. I’ve never watched any of his videos and I don’t know how seriously he takes his music. I know he fought Logan Paul and won, so I guess I’m rooting for him, and “Dissimulation” better than a lot of Youtuber music, though it still wasn’t very good at all. “All Over The Place” also isn’t a project I would call good, but I’d definitely call it an improvement since his last ... read more

After spending years developing her R&B sound to a point of making consistently good tracks, WILLOW threw a curve ball with a headfirst dive into the world of pop-punk, backed by the busy as ever Travis Barker. While her entry into the genre isn’t perfect, “lately I feel EVERYTHING” is a solid entry into the genre that I hope WILLOW explores again in the future.

First of all, I have to commend how WILLOW’s R&B vocals fit perfectly with these dirtier pop-punk ... read more

I actually kind of love this movie because of how bad it is. Every decision is just so poorly made and baffling that it accidentally becomes wildly entertaining. But yeah, this soundtrack is not it. I’ve never liked the music in Cats and always thought it was badly written, and it’s not helped by the bad and/or miscast performances and director Tom Hooper actively trying to make the score worse for his wildly misguided need for “realism” (its a musical ... read more

In case you’ve been living under a rock, pop-punk and the subcultures adjacent to it are back in a big way - in fact, a big pop-punk inspired album by Willow Smith just came out today. Whenever movements like this make a return and there has already been a successful blueprint from the past, it’s only a matter of time where cynical industry figures try to cash in on said movements to make a quick buck while it’s still in. However, one important thing about this current brand ... read more

I’ll be honest, I’m a terrible music nerd - I have never heard a Kate Bush album. I try to intentionally not to listen to *too* much new music so I don’t develop listener fatigue, and because of that some influential artists get lost in the shuffle. But with the release of the critically adored album “The Turning Wheel” and a phrase that was often thrown around being that it was a modern take on a Kate Bush record, I took that as an excuse to finally listen to her ... read more

I’ve been wanting to get to this record for a bit now, but due to other albums that I was interested in taking up my time I hadn’t been able to get around to it until now where it seems like a lot of the bigger releases have slowed down for a bit. And while I don’t think “To See The Next Part of the Dream” is one of the best releases this year, I do see why Parannoul’s latest release will likely go down as an internet cult classic.

Not much is known about ... read more

I wasn’t familiar with IDK’s music before listening to this album, so I came into this completely blind. And while I think he showed a lot of potential with this record, “USEE4YOURSELF” loses a lot of its appeal by being inconsistent.

The cracks of “USEE4YOURSELF” actually don’t show themselves at the very beginning of the record - in fact, I’d say the record starts very strong. IDK raps with great energy and delivery, solid bars, and is backed ... read more

Xandra, I hope one day you’ll be confident enough in your work that you’ll be comfortable with releasing music again. Your music is so important to many people. If nothing else, I just hope you’re doing okay πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š

I have such a weird relationship with this album. I know the band was really unhappy during this period and this was more of a project to help them get to a better headspace, and that’s great if it succeeded, and I’m sure it sucked to watch something that you loved creating get ripped apart like that. But there’s just no denying that “One More Light is their weakest set of songs and most genetically produced project. It’s basically a radio album ... read more

It’s been three years since we’ve last gotten a full length project from Vince Staples, and considering how short “FM!” was it feels like even longer. Now that he’s finally released his self-titled, I honestly can’t help but feel a little underwhelmed.

At only twenty two minutes in length, Staples choosing this project is honestly peculiar, being that this feels the least like his most notable qualities. This is his most personal, somber, and lowkey record ... read more

After spending some time honing her craft as an artist, Tkay Maidza really exploded in 2020 with the release of “Last Year Was Weird, Vol. 2”. Now with the release of its followup, Vol. 3, it seems as though Maidza has stuck the landing, proving her chops as a bonafide hitmaker.

Even though it’s been years since her debut, Tkay Maidza has more than proven that she’s kept herself busy with her “Last Year Was Weird” trilogy. The previous volume in this ... read more

I was going to eventually get around to this, I wanted to work out exactly what I was feeling about this album before I reviewed it, but there are certain moments in the music world that instantly change what your listening priorities are (I’m sure if you care even the slightest bit about music you know what I’m referring to). I’m probably already late to the party on this one, so now’s the time to give my hot take on this record:

“The Turning Wheel” by ... read more

Considering how much of an egotistical shithead Mayo Chris Brown is at all times online, I would have thought this album would be a lot more interesting, or at least filled with hilarious macho posturing. This is just overproduced pop rock with drop tuned guitars.

Anyways, I hope your shitty grift was worth all of those streams that your album - oh.

"@camdoesmusic that’s fair. There were certain tracks where I felt that was the case, and while I don’t think it was an issue for most of the album for me it’s definitely more of a slowburn. I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy it as much as I do but I’m glad to hear you gave it a shot!"

"@YeezyWazGud it’s a broken industry for sure. They’ve always been fucking over smaller artists and pushing those that don’t challenge industry, the details of how they do it just change with time. You really just have to hope your music either catches on or you find other opportunities in the field as well to keep things lucrative. I’m not huge into Olivia’s music but as far as stream abuse goes I think there’s a lot worse and more cynical offenders than her. Hopefully shit will change one day. Hopefully nothing as bad as TRAMP STAMPS actually manages to become popular"
