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.

Of course, Travis Scott was going to release something before the end of the year. JACKBOYS is a hip hop collective consisting of Travis Scott, Sheck Wes, and Don Toliver. Despite the collective only having three members, the EP JACKBOYS has some guest features from Quavo, Offset, and many more.

To start off the album, we have a remix of Travis Scott's HIGHEST IN THE ROOM, which was released earlier this year. If you haven't heard the original, it has a trap beat with a high-pitched vocalist in the background. The remix keeps the chorus and his first verse, but then we have the addition of RosalĂ­a and Lil Baby.…

Allah-Las is an American indie rock band consisted of four different members. LAHS marks the band's fourth studio album. While I have always known about Allah-Las, I have never had the chance to sit down and listen to one their albums, even though they have been on my "listen to list" for a while now. Now, with the release of LAHS, I had the chance to sit down and give them a chance, and I definitely wasn't disappointed.

The album starts out with Holding Pattern. There's an easy guitar groove going on at the very beginning. Right off the bat, this reminds me of some old-school classic rock, as we…

CZARFACE is a hip hop collective formed by hip hop duo 7L & Esoteric, as well as Wu-Tang Clan's Inspectah Deck. CZARFACE has had an eventful year, starting off with CZARFACE Meets Ghostface, which is a collaborative project between CZARFACE and Ghostface Killah from Wu-Tang Clan. CZARFACE also dropped an instrumental album titled Double Dose of Danger (which I was able to snag on Record Store Day this year!) and the album I am going to be reviewing, The Odd Czar Against Us. While I just discovered CZARFACE last year, they definitely reminded me of MF DOOM, with the comic book-like characters. Both also use…
