Iridescene and GINGER are both good projects from L.A. rap collective BROCKHMAPTON, yet they were missing a certain something that made their SATURATION series so appealing, but it looks like the group got their swagger back and definitely deliver it on their latest album ROADRUNNER: NEW LIGHT, NEW MACHINE. This newest project brings together every sound the group has attempted in the past and does them on a such a high level. Guest feature Danny Brown brings a fiery energy to opener ... read more

Rod Wave has an album (SoulGFly) that has been getting tons of streams and continues to be one of the biggest artist at the moment so I thought it see what he was about. This guy clearly has talent, as he has meaningful topics to talk about and his multifaceted delivery allows him to both rap his bars and deliver a satisfying hook, but the songs just start blending too much into each other the more it goes on. I like what melodic rap is bringing to the conversation, but I can only hear that ... read more

It’s not very common to find to come across a band that is crushingly heavy, but are still able to be extremely catchy with big pop sensibilities, yet that tricky balance is exactly what you find on Ultrapop, the latest album from Detroit hardcore collective The Armed. It was only a few months ago that I first caught wind of the band when checking out their 2018 release Only Love and although I really loved that album, it only hinted at the sugary coated appeal found on Ultrapop, as many ... read more

After the massive success of Faith, George Michael follows it up with a much more mature take on pop and a definite statement on Life Without Prejudice Vol 1. Although the more joyous moments are reserves for the thrilling declaration of “Freedom! '90” and soothing sway of “Soul Free”, there is still so much positive vibes flowing from the sweeping opener “Praying for Time”, the jazzy gallop of "Cowboys and Angels" and easy going pop-rock of ... read more

The classic track “Carless Whisper” might have revealed the massive star potential of singer George Michael, but it was his 1987 solo debut Faith that cemented his stardom. That album overflows with fantastic vocal performances from Michael, as he executes the ideal pop sound on the title track, comes across both sultry and sensual on the sensational “Father Figure”, presents perfect ballads with “One More Try”& “Kissing a Fool” and even ... read more

Canadian electronic artist Michael Silver has released music as CFCF since 2009 and his latest album Memoryland is a trip back to the late 90’s and the height of electronica and techno. I remember back on those days and how those scenes were suppose to be the next big thing and although they each made their dent on the mainstream, electronic music wouldn’t reach stadium heights until EDM really hit it big. CFCF doesn’t just plunge into those past sounds well on tracks like ... read more

About

Sonic Discovery takes a glimpse at the newest music being released and features the stuff worth checking out and occasionally covers other things that won't be for everyone.

I will also be taking a deep dive into older artists discographies to see how they have left their mark on the music of today.

Come along for the ride as we discover music together.
