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.

The boy band who swept a lot of people off their feet back in 2017 are back with their fifth studio album, GINGER. Brockhampton is a boy band originally formed in San Marcos, Texas. The group eventually moved to Los Angeles and grew in popularity.

The first track off the album is NO HALO. Compared to all of the other Brockhampton albums, this is a mellow opener. It starts off with a guitar and high pitched vocals. Throughout the track, members of the group talk about their imperfections and some of the issues they have faced. The title of the track, NO HALO, probably refers to the fact that they aren't perfect people. Merlyn stood out most on this track since …

Album Review: Happiness Begins by Jonas Brothers

The Jonas Brothers are a pop/rock band that formed back in 2005. After nearly a 6 year hiatus, they have released their fifth studio album, Happiness Begins.

Sucker was the first single released for the album. After hearing this song, I was actually excited about the Jonas Brothers reuniting. I was never a fan of them when I was in middle school and high school, but I knew I had to give this new album a listen. I actually really enjoyed the first track and it hooked me into the album right away. It's a high energy pop song, something that will definitely gather some air time on the radio. This is a typical love song, where this person loves someone else greatly, and they would do anything for them. The Jonas Brothers might be referring to their wives since all three of them are married.

Cool was the second single released for the album. This song wasn't one of my favorite when first released, but it is growing on me. It opens up with a slow acoustic guitar, and then a drum beat…

Bandana is a collaborative project between American rapper Freddie Gibbs and American producer Madlib. This is their second collaboration together, with PiƱata being the first project back in 2014. Judging by the album, these two artists work really well together and have dropped a solid album this year.

The first track is Obrigado and it is an introduction track. The first part is a small clip from Freddie Gibb's uncle. The second part took me some time to actually realize the speaker was speaking English. Obrigado is Portuguese for "thank you." The title of the track could also be a play on words of the Japanese word…
