Lil Ugly Mane

Lil Ugly Mane Volcanic Bird Enemy and the Voiced Conce
whether this dude crafts rap or psych trip-h(p)oppy stuff, he always be surreal. here's another drug-full trip. yay. he da "Lil" GOAT. 4.0
Magdalena Bay Mercurial World
Boppy pop despite its quite ethereal/downbeat attributes. It's indeed quite moody, with vocals resembling more Grimes' bittersweetness than Jepsen's bomb-ass-thicc-ness, but the music is so lush it forces you to shake da ass. Best 2021 pop. 3.9
Big K.R.I.T. 4Eva N A Day
As always: hella dope shit ranging from conscious to braggy to dirty south to jazzy. 3.8
Trivium In the Court of the Dragon
Not really my kinda stuff deez dayz, but it does riff and whatnot. some choruses are catchy too. 3.2
The World Is a Beautiful Place... Illusory Walls
byebye midwest, hello prog! Indeed, if the post'n'indie rock traces of their sound have not disappeared, their emo side have decreased over the years while the prog linings have been more and more prominent. This entire approach culminates in Illusory Walls, which sees atmosphere retain its central place within the band's soundscape in a more epic fashion than ever. Some tracks do overstay their welcome and the middle is not on par with the bookends, but damn this is still constantly beautiful, well-composed and produced. 3.8
Nightwatchers Common Crusades
Angry French punk with some power pop punk linings from time to time so that the record ain't only societal diatribe. Also they switched to English, which is ultimately a good move because eh you know more peepz understand English, but also not good because the singer's voice really resemble Parquet Courts'. They do also lose some of the impact of their most biting critique with that language switch - but maybe it's a conscious will to move on to non-French political issues, idk. Aside all that, - very - cool punk with dynamic chords and energetic performances. 3.6
Wardruna Runaljod - Yggdrasil
Tribalistico-pagan folk music, whose focus on repetition helps instigate a ritualistic and spiritual atmosphere to the record. It's very pretty in its moodiness. 3.7

  • SlothcoreSam Hey I saw you checked the last Nightwatchers album. They released a new one this week, and it's pretty good, songs are a little samesy, but apart from that it's great.
