There has been a lot of great music coming out of Dublin over the last few years, but I’m going to be honest...this record caught me completely by surprise. I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but by the end of it, I was both in tears and smiling ear to ear at the same time.

The beauty of “For Those I Love” lies not in the hypnotic dance grooves and layered electronic textures of the record, but in the somber, poignant and heartfelt lyricism that David Balfe recites ... read more

“Flu Game” sees UK Rapper AJ Tracey make a significant improvement on all fronts. This basketball-themed album has plenty of quotables and fun moments despite being relatively generic sounding.

First off as a photographer who absolutely loves black and white photographs, this album cover is absolutely stunning!

Secondly, while there were lots of sonically stunning moments on this record, they failed to come together in a way that I found very appealing or engaging. There are some great moments on here for sure. The production is absolutely fantastic, which is to be expected at this point with Stott’s work but this record lacks an objective sense of purpose or fluidity that his ... read more

Hey, I'm doing a community list of songs to hypothetically replace the U.S. National Anthem, would love to hear what your suggestion is and why you think it's deserving of anthem status (you don't need an explanation, but it would be nice :))
