Neek's Q3 2018: Albums

Probably the last of these I'll do till my year-end list
24Eminem
Kamikaze


2.2
Laughably arrogant and malicious, Kamikaze is more of a fleeting grasp for attention then a successful bite into modern hip-hop, but occasionally it reaches some genuinely enjoyable heights.
Fave Tracks: “The Ringer” “Venom”
23Blood Orange
Negro Swan


3.4
Musically wonderful, thematically hand-holding.

Fave Tracks: “Vulture Baby” “Orlando”
22Lucy Dacus
Historian


3.4
She’s on the verge of something great, but her folk roots don’t do her much good here.

Fave Track: “Timefighter”
21DRAM
That's A Girls Name


3.4
Continuing the fun and quirky elements of his full length in the chillest ways possible with this short EP.
Fave Track: “Sundress”
20Paul Cherry
Flavour


3.5
Lounge-y, vaporwave-y, tongue-in-cheek-y music that is as endearing as it is occasionally frustrating.
Fave Tracks: “Hello Again” “I See You”
19Nilufer Yanya
Do You Like Pain?


3.7
A weird but palatable mix of folk and RnB, this EP shows great promise for future releases from her.
Fave Tracks: “Thanks for Nothing” “Baby Luv (ALASKAALASKA Remix)”
18Courtney Barnett
Tell Me How You Really Feel


3.7
There’s some bangers on here, and some refined indie-rock goodness, but honestly things don’t feel as exciting as they should this time around.

Fave Tracks: “City Looks Pretty” “Need a Little Time”
17Courtney Marie Andrews
May Your Kindness Remain


3.7
Old-fashioned country with a refreshingly modern spin.
Full review: https://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/77866/Courtney-Marie-Andrews-May-Your-Kindness-Remain/
Fave Tracks: t/t, “Border”
16Ben Howard
Another Friday Night / Hot Heavy Summer / Sister


3.9
Yeah this is much weaker than his latest god-tier album, but what can I say? I’m a sucker for his stuff right now and this hit the spot.
Fave Tracks: “Sister” “Another Friday Night”
15Iglooghost
Clear Tamei


4.0
I wasn’t a fan of that last album but goddamn does this make me want to revisit it.
Fave Track: “Shrine Hacker”
14Avantist
Terasoma


4.0
This Chicago-based underground punk band fuckin rules, check this EP asap.
Fave Track: “this_could_be_it_”
13Ravyn Lenae
Crush


4.0
A blissful, cool, sexy RnB EP with some neat production and a unique sound. Chicago represent baby.
Fave Track: “Sticky”
12IDLES
Joy as an Act of Resistance


4.0
Fast, aggressive, heartfelt post-punk? Fuck it, I’m in.
Fave Tracks: “Colossus” “June” “Rottweiler”
11Tomberlin
At Weddings


4.1
This weirdly fell off the more I listened to it, but it’s undoubtedly a great folk album regardless.
Fave Tracks: “I’m Not Scared” “Untitled 2”
10Zola Jesus
Okovi: Additions


4.1
I took a recent (and very successful) splurge into Zola’s latest release “Okovi,” and god fuck was it good. This even rivals it in terms of just pure consistentcy, the b-sides are excellent and some remixes even better the originals.
Fave Tracks: “Siphon (Katie Gately Remix)” “Bitten Wool”
9Iglooghost
Steel Mogu


4.1
About as good as the last, bumped up for being darker and more aggressive. This shit is like the music of the future.
Fave Tracks: “Mei Mode” “Niteracer”
8Wild Pink
Yolk in the Fur


4.1
Starts with a breathtaking opening trio, winds down a bit into more relaxing but uninteresting tracks after that.
Fave Tracks: “Lake Erie” “Yolk in the Fur”
7Soccer Mommy
Clean


4.1
The last three tracks are especially godly here.
Full review: https://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/77620/soccer-mommy-Clean/
Fave Tracks: “Scorpio Rising” “Wildflowers”
6Noname
Room 25


4.1
Easily my hip-hop AOTY rn.
Fave Tracks: “Prayer Song” “Montego Bae”
5Moses Sumney
Black in Deep Red, 2014


4.2
This is a crazy mix of black genres and emotions, if you’re the slightest fan of soul or rock music, I recommend you give this short EP a moment of your time.
Fave Track: “Rank and File”
4Tash Sultana
Flow State


4.2
Instrumentally varied, always exciting if occasionally overwrought.
Fave Tracks: “Pink Moon” “Blackbird”
3Shannen Moser
I'll Sing


4.3
A beautiful, uplifting, and surprisingly eclectic collection of country/folk tunes.
Fave Tracks: “Haircut Song” “Your Window Seat”
2Big Red Machine
Big Red Machine


4.3
“Strange, aching, and downright gorgeous.” [2]
Fave Tracks: “Deep Forest” “Gratitude”
1Foxing
Nearer My God


4.4
Some of the coolest goddamn rock music I’ve heard in a while.
Fave Tracks: “Gameshark” “Five Sharks”
