 - I Know I'm Funny haha
91
a topic of discussion about faye webster’s fourth album title - ‘i know i’m funny haha’ - is why webster included the “haha”. the term’s inclusion can be a subject of debate, as its necessity seemed arguable. as it turns out, the term’s use proves absolutely essential in the context of the music and lyrics. on the title track, when webster dryly wavers over the “haha”, there’s a slight twinge; suddenly the whole song gets turned ... read more

 - Swimmer
99
‘swimmer’ is put together profoundly well, as alaina moore and patrick riley form inclusive and welcoming music - timeless art - all while putting together their best album yet. ‘swimmer’, as a project, delivers in a thorough and detailed sense that many works merely promise. this album peacefully presents its own comforting style. rather than attempting to evoke (specific emotions from listeners), ‘swimmer’ instead offers. it offers the real, truthful ... read more
 - Vince Staples

at its core, ‘vince staples’ deals with choices. the album is a reflection on grey areas and how vince chooses to handle his life.

whether a choice is about thugging, a production decision, showing new areas and emotions, being in the streets, etc. in any case, staples’ flattened attitude is devastatingly candid.

a previously hidden part of vince staples is not only present, it is at the forefront of the record. a new side of vince is shown via his introspective lyrics and ... read more

 - Changephobia

‘changephobia’ is a surprisingly risky album by rostam. the dreaminess present throughout this project is so diminished it almost appears drab. ‘changephobia’ feels faded throughout. this airy, arid sound makes the album feel impressively desolate at many points.

a softer, and often times slower, version of rostam’s skilled production shows throughout his second solo record.

rostam batmanglij - now known mononymously - was the leader of the iconoclastic group ... read more

 - CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST
98
for 'call me if you get lost’, tyler okonma frames his own perspective into an out-of-bounds, disparate product. tyler crafts against conventions, and his creations flourish as result.

‘call me if you get lost’ is tyler’s best rap album yet; while it is not street, not grimey, and it does not usually sound “hard”, ‘call me if you get lost’ may be tyler’s most efficient work thus far.

tyler projects typically have common denominators: each ... read more

 - Butterfly 3000
93
my expectations for king gizzard and the lizard wizard are high and wide, yet i was completely shocked to hear their new endeavor ‘butterfly 3000’. i am taken aback by this album. this work is one of, if not the singular, most accessible album by king gizzard and the lizard wizard.

the surprise of ‘butterfly 3000’ brings one to a state of fascination. the group’s made the bold choice to not releasing any singles on gizz’s most poppy, single ready album. ... read more
