Playboi Carti – Die Lit

09-Aug-18

★★★☆☆ = Good! What’s it sound like? Repetitive mumble raps ( I guess this is trap) over youthful production. It’s got that emo teen vibe uzi has – I really like the sound. Thoughts This is great. I don’t see the album having any lasting replayability but in 2018 it works. Feels like it’s a […]

Neil Young – Dead Man

08-Aug-18

★★☆☆☆ = Eh, fine What’s it sound like? Textural guitar noodling by Young Thoughts It’s kind of unfair reviewing this as its a soundtrack but whatever, doesn’t really work as say standalone album. Half of it is corny dialogue that’s skipable. The 6 guitar solos are interesting on a superficial level but nothing very memorable. […]

Buzzy Lee – Facepaint EP

07-Aug-18

★★★☆☆ = Good! What’s it sound like? Female pop singer fronting a band an indie adult contemporary band. Thoughts Good, poppy and catchy.

Valee,Chase The Money – VTM

07-Aug-18

★☆☆☆☆ = Bad What’s it sound like? Disinterested generic rapping over amateur boomy beats. Thoughts If you’re not paying attention this sounds OK, I like the ‘removed’ vibe, but if you listen too close it falls apart.

Lindstrøm – It’s Alright Between Us As It Is

06-Aug-18

★★★☆☆ = Good! What’s it sound like? Future italio disco Thoughts This is good! I’ve generally been a fan of his productions but here he’s making Todd Terje’s nu-disco thing sexy and cool.

Alanis Morissette – Jagged Little Pill

03-Aug-18

★★★★★ = Classic, essential listening What’s it sound like? The best of 90s radio alt rock. Thoughts A very important record to me, I could not stop listening to this when it came out in the summer of 1995. I know I wasn’t alone cause it was played constantly on the radio. It’s an important […]

Bambooman,Kirk Barley – Bambooman ‎– Whispers

02-Aug-18

★★☆☆☆ = Eh, fine What’s it sound like? An assortment of left field electro Thoughts I found the interludes Frost and melt interesting in their organic percussive approach. Static is a good one, Koze like. Guests on side one felt generic and uninspired, play it safe electro pop. The second half is much better opening […]

Gene Harris – Instant Party

01-Aug-18

★★☆☆☆ = Eh, fine What’s it sound like? Light groovy jazz Thoughts Great playing is on display here but I didn’t find anything that memorable. This would work well as jazzy daytime background music.

Funkadelic – Tales Of Kidd Funkadelic

31-Jul-18

★★★★☆ = Quality release and suggested listening What’s it sound like? Funkadelic Thoughts Apparently this is a set of b sides from the funkadelic era which makes this a must hear. I think it’s as good as anything from that legendary run of their core records even if it’s lacking a cohesive concept. More Info […]

Duke Ellington And His Orchestra – Ellington Uptown

30-Jul-18

★★☆☆☆ = Eh, fine What’s it sound like? Big band / swing Thoughts Not really my thing but ode to Harlem is amazing. Take the a-train is an obvious classic too though I prefer covers of it.
