The xx Sees You

Something is in the water, and that something is helping musicians makes some echo-ringing sad pop albums. James Blake, Bon Iver, and even Frank Ocean did it. Now, The xx joins their ranks with I See You. The trio’s latest album is a collection of mellow, glacial pop ballads that focus on the ins and outs of […]

Flo Morrissey Doesn’t Cover Her Voice

The last time an album of cover songs was on my radar was when Xiu Xiu played the music of Twin Peaks. The experimental band did their best at reinvisioning Angelo Badalamenti’s brooding score–eking the most tension from every note. Flo Morrissey and Matthew E. White do much of the same in Gentlewoman, Ruby Man. Reengineering […]

Lil Kim Gets Hardcore

There was a beautiful time in the mid- to late 90s when hip hop, RnB, and pop came together seamlessly. At the center of this was Lil Kim‘s debut album Hard Core. The Queen Bee’s album marries the hard edged aesthetic/persona that accompanies many rappers with the controlled and unabashed use of her sexuality. Like a […]

Echo

Gone is Gone Uses Echolocation

Gone is Gone‘s latest album, Echolocation, blends post-rock atmospheric textures with grinding heaviness to make a record that is all encompassing. Glittering and beautiful at points and sludgy and thick at others, Echolocation unfurls like the perfect blanket for the new year’s coldness. The album begins with “Sentient,” a track that introduces the album well. Soft textures […]

Arrival Arrives

Johann Johannsson returns with another taut score for Arrival. Coming off his award winning score for Sicario, Johannsson orchestrates another stunning sonic landscape for Arrival. The soundtrack is a patchwork of percussion heavy, droning, atmospheric sketches. The combination of which strikes an odd balance between paranoia and ecstasy. Arrival‘s soundtrack is much quicker than Sicario‘s and perfect for fans of […]

The Flatbush Zombies Take Us on a Laced Odyssey

The Flatbush Zombies spit a fine line. One the one hand, the trio’s music is disjunctive, dark, and all around strange. On the other, it unwinds incredibly smooth, laced with points of light and references to other hip hop acts. It’s hard to neatly classify their latest, 3001: A Laced Odyssey. I can say that the […]

Rae Sremmurd’s Double Life

Rae Sremmurd is back with Sremmlife 2. Coming off the massive single “Black Beatles,” the album sits in the murky level between the high and the eventual withdrawal. Sremmlife 2 spins with all the energy of a Mike Jones joint and the self-awareness that has come to be a hallmark of contemporary rap (thanks to rappers […]
