Albums I'm Looking Forward To: 5/17/19

It is that time of the week again, the albums I am looking forward to on Friday! This week we have a plethora of albums coming out and I am ecstatic to listen to everything that is coming out. Here is a short list of what I am looking forward to on Friday.

1. Igor by Tyler, the Creator
Tyler's last album was amazing, and all of his singles that he dropped since Flower Boy have been A+ material, especially his single Okra, which is a banger. From the small snippets I've heard, it seems like Tyler is taking more of an experimental route this time.

2. Living Mirage by The Head and the Heart
I first heard about The Head and the Heart from my girlfriend. To say that she loves this band is an understatement. I'll be honest, I wasn't too stoked about this band when I first listened to them. I thought they were okay, but it really wasn't my cup of tea. As time went on, I started to get into them more and more. After listening to the singles from their upcoming album, it really reeled me in, especially the song, Honeybee.

3. I Am Easy to Find by The National
I'll be honest, I have yet to listen to their 2017 album in full. I know I know, it's been out for two years, but I keep on forgetting it's there, despite it's amazing reviews. I haven't listened to any of the singles for this album yet because I want to listen to the album in it's entirety. Then I won't be spoiled by the singles that have been released. Other than that, I don't have much to say besides, it's The National! What's not to be excited about this?

4. Injury Reserve by Injury Reserve
I might be a little bias since I live in Tempe (where they are from), but they are on their way to the top. After releasing a few amazing mixtapes, they are finally releasing their first commercial full length album. Koruna & Lime is a bop, and I'm excited to see where this new release takes them.
