Courtney Barnett Tell Me How You Really Feel
Tell Me How You Really Feel sees Barnett going from mostly bright and upbeat/tempo with some angst/melancholy in her last LP to a more mellow atmosphere with fuzzier production and a few upbeat tracks. There is nothing wrong with a more toned down, introspective release but this album just feels closer to other indie rock than the brilliantly natural and clear 'Sometimes I Sit...' The album does start off with great track variation and some really memorable choruses and vocals from Barnett but the second half of the album starting at 'I'm Not Your Mother...' shows a bit of drop off and a sort of lull to the finish, some sameness in this stret

Litku Klemetti Taika tapahtuu
Litku Klemetti wastes no time coming back with a 2nd LP in as many years this time adding more a more progressive flair onto her lo-fi brand of psychedelic pop. Once again saturated with organs, synth and Litku's balalaika the album has a 60s/70s feel without being a full on emulation or worship of that era, Litku's overall sound has a nice freshness. The group does best at higher tempos but does well here to feature a nice variation of tempo throughout Taika tapahtuu. Overall the record has a very bright and happy atmosphere, the music is just fun and makes you want to move. The 2017 effort had more catchy hooks and memorable tracks but here

brokeNCYDE 0 To Brokencyde
Just in case you thought Crunkcore was dead in 2018, Brokencyde has got you covered. Laiden with the most generic trap beats of all time and edgy 7th grade lyrics, 0 to Brokencyde is impressively bad from beginning to end. Make no mistake these hard dudes are gonna have their way with your girl, smoke a ton of dank kush and make a ton of money at their sold out shows, they said so. Mueve is the only track that even approaches interesting but for extra laughs check out Psychos, D@ Good, No Bodies Safe (perhaps the worst hook of all time) and Ass & Titties. To top it all off the production is horrendous making everything extra muddled and slopp

Kanye West ye
At first ye felt really disappointing due to the fact that there just isn't much content and it doesn't have that grandiose feel that Kanye has been so successful at providing with his best work. Also, it goes without saying Kanye's ego and antics have reached a level where things have gotten a bit more uncomfortable supporting him. It is basically impossible to see any hint of the man that made College Dropout in Kanye now. That being said, most of the album is quite solid musically with solid guest spots supporting Kanye and some memorable lyrics/hooks here and there. It feels very up close and personal and that is one of the biggest streng

Courtney Barnett sometimes i sit and think, and sometimes i just sit
An indie rock, singer/songwriter effort that excels with excellent songwriting, track to track variation and refreshing clarity in the lyrics thanks to Barnett's very much to the point writing style. With each of Courtney's anecdotes it feels like there is something most of us could relate to and the entire album just has a very natural feel. Her lyricism really adds a lot to the experience. Courtney proves that she has a wide range with the rockin' and catchy 'Pedestrian at Best', a slowed down and all too real feeler in 'Depreston' and the more extended, jam in 'Kim's Caravan' where the instruments shine. Great melodies all around with prod

Alkaloid Liquid Anatomy
A worthy follow up to their debut album and one the best acts out there right now to go really progressive and very technical death and make it work out so smoothly. Throughout Liquid Anatomy the group does a great job creating contrast between absurdly heavy death riffs and softer proggy sections. The vocalist seamlessly switches between aggressive growls and light singing suiting the flow of what the instrumentalists are doing. There is a ton of content here and Alkaloid focus less on defined song structure than they did on Malkuth Grimoire, it can be a lot to digest but repeated listening is rewarded in this case as it seems like there is

Panopticon The Scars of Man on the Once Nameless Wilderness
Though it is fairly obvious what one will get going into a Panopticon record these days, Austin Lunn continues to build on his repertoire of pairing atmospheric black metal with folk and Americana. The Scars of Man on the Once Nameless Wilderness is grand and ambitious and showcases Lunn's full, impressive arsenal of instruments and his ability to produce top notch black metal and folk, this time separated into two distinct records. The entire record takes on a melancholic, sombre atmosphere and this feeling really ties the two discs together. As the name of the album suggests Lunn once again visits themes of nature and how man relies on and
