"XXX" introduced the world to Danny Brown's experimental style, but "Atrocity Exhibition" was like "FUCK THAT SHIT" and demolished that album's aesthetic in turn for a monstrous, overdosed, balls to the spiked wall, spiraling rollercoaster of addiction, self-abuse and flat-out depression. NOTHING SOUNDS LIKE THIS!!! There's not a single track on here that isn't weird or deranged in the slightest! The instrumentals teeter on the edge of both psychedelic and ... read more

The Peni--ahem! I mean BENIS Man is back baby and he's dropped a new EP! (I slept horribly, so apologies for the messy writing)

In terms of influences, Ryan shows plenty of love to experimental rap peers while also taking the limited recording equipment and bedroom headspace into mind. It all pretty much begins with the intro, which takes obvious inspiration from the usual clipping. album openers. To be honest, while it does set the tone of "Rollercoaster" pretty damn well, the high ... read more

Recorded throughout the pandemic and boasting a radio show concept, Daniel Lopatin has crafted what I believe to be one of his most refreshing, indulgent and oddly accessible albums in his catalog.

While I wouldn't say it's essential OPN material just from these first couple of listens, "Replica" and ... read more

Y'know why I don't like this album? It's because I'm not some pronouns-in-bio-hating manchild on the internet who's so jealous of people liking 100 gecs more than my own less professional MIDI loops that I waste more of everyone's time trying to expose the community's "idiocy" by recommending everyone "Frankenstein Girls Will Seem Strangely Sexy" by Mindless Self Indulgence.

Well, lemme tell ya somethin'. Recommending a dated album with terrible mixing, mediocre ... read more

Now, I'm not as crazy for Nothing But Thieves as I was, like, 2 years ago but I still have a soft spot for them and I'm still a somewhat a defender for "Broken Machine" (though a 9.3 is WAY too high). Despite the clean, radio-ready production hindering it somewhat, it's still a great album in my opinion. The riffs and instrumentation are superb, Connor Mason's vocals are beautiful, the choruses are consistently fantastic and they weren't afraid to take a few risks with their sound. ... read more

Album covers often get a lot of attention, sometimes more than the music itself but there's one aspect to albums that is very often overlooked: the title. The title often sets the mood and energy of the album, or is memorable enough to stick with you, but seldom gets credit for doing so. Anyways, this leads into a question I have (for a list): what's your favourite album title of all time?
