Majical Cloudz: Illusion

I am very late to the Majical Cloudz bandwagon now that the band has disbanded. While together their music was on a whole other plane compared to other musicians. Their minimalist and stark sound brought forth an alarming emotive response. “Illusion” is one such song with its atmospheric sound and vocalist Devon Welsh’s somber words….

Blood Orange: S’Cooled

Here is another great track from Blood Orange. “S’Cooled” has an 80’s new wave sound that features a danceable beat. The guitar riff is quite amazing as it stays in step with the drums. Check it out above.

Blood Orange: Champagne Coast (live)

After seeing Blood Orange perform live I have revisiting his music and started with his first record “Coastal Grooves”. When I first listened to it when it came out I was intrigued by the sound especially Dev Hynes’ guitar work but it never latched on to me. But now I am surprised by how much…

ScHoolboy Q: JoHn Muir

ScHoolboy Q’s fourth studio album “Blank Face” is one of the best rap records of the year. It is a gangster rap album that has ScHoolboy Q spitting some of his best verses to date. “JoHn Muir” is one of the best songs from the album and has that classic gangster rap sound. The music…

Domo Genesis: Faded in the Moment

Domo Genesis is one of my favorite rappers from the Odd Future gang. His flow is laid back and his lyrics are always on point. He released his debut studio album “Genesis” in March to positive reviews. “Fade in the Moment” features a soulful beat that is reminiscent of the chill hop genre. Domo rides…

Gucci Mane feat. Young Thug: Guwop Home

I have never been a fan of Gucci Mane but on the track “Guwop Home” which features Young Thug is a catchy and hot song. Young Thug’s vocals fluctuate on the track and provides a head bouncing chorus. Check it out above.

Deerhunter: All The Same

When I first listened to Deerhunter I thought they had to be one of the weirdest bands ever. Their music was disjointed and abrasive then I listened to “Halcyon Digest” and everything changed. The band grew up and became one of my favorites. Their most recent record “Fading Frontier” was released last year to critical…

Vince Staples: Surf (feat. Kilo Kish)

I’ve been listening to a lot of Vince Staples lately especially his debut studio album “Summertime ’06”. The record is with a doubt one of the best rap albums released in the past five years. It has some of the most memorable music production and lyrics from Vince himself. “Surf” features a harsh and cold…
