It’s been a while since I’ve been completely blown off guard by how good an album is. If you’re into anything pop-punk/shoegaze/hyperpop I cannot recommend checking this out enough.

This record hits like a huge nighttime sugar high. The first half features ridiculously catchy melodies and choruses, and the second half is this collage of beautiful, nocturnal sound design. It’s an amazing experience and far and away the best he’s put out to date.

The ignoble peon poet from nowhere has returned with another collection of impeccably jazzy rhymes over phenomenal production.

On his new album, Kill Bill goes to space, but he still can’t seem to escape the phantom emotions that haunt him.

It’s a great week for rap. R.A.P. Ferreira, Kill Bill, and another phenomenal new Navy Blue-produced joint. I swear, Navy just keeps getting better and better on production, and Jah is just a perfect match for these beats.

Lord Jah is a name I’ve heard a bit of before. I had never checked out a project of his, but from his features on a couple YL tapes I could tell that this guy really stood out. His rapping has this unhinged, conversational feel, and the lyrics and even the ... read more

There’s a certain point deep into the night where you feel weightless.

After hours and hours of working on a paper or a project, struggling to keep focus, you grab a glass of water, or take a quick break, and then suddenly that serotonin boost hits you. All of a sudden, you feel the shackles on your mind releasing, and it almost feels like a new day.

Something about this new feeling is much different from daytime, though. You don’t feel completely present; it’s more like ... read more
