Albums I'm Looking Forward To: 5/31/19

It's finally the end of the month, and we are getting our last batch of albums for the month of May. There are a lot of great projects coming out on Friday, especially from smaller indie bands!

1. yes & no by XYLØ


I was browsing new albums for the week and found this artist. The band used to consist of Paige Duddy, and her brother, Chase Duddy. Her brother left the group in 2018 to focus on other projects. Paige Duddy lives in Los Angeles and is releasing her debut EP this Friday. I was listening to one the tracks on the EP, the end, and immediately fell in love with this artist. If you love indie/alternative pop, be sure to check out the new EP!

2. Boat by Pip Blom


This was another band I stumbled upon while researching upcoming albums. According to their Facebook page, they are an indie rock band from Amsterdam. I love the lo-fi rock sound they have going on from the singles they have released for their album. Pip Blom also has some free music on Bandcamp, so be sure to check them out!

3. Ignorance Is Bliss by Skepta


If you are new to British hip hop, Skepta is one of the leading artists of the genre. Ignorance Is Bliss is the follow up project of his 2016 album, Konnichiwa. He's been quiet and has only put out two singles for Ignorance Is Bliss. The tracklist is still unknown at this time.

4. Zuu by Denzel Curry


I was surprised when Denzel Curry announced that he was releasing a new project. If you haven't yet, you need to listen to his 2018 album, TA13OO, which was one of my favorite albums of 2018. He has released a few singles in 2019, as well as a killer cover of Bulls On Parade by Rage Against The Machine.

What albums are you looking forward to this weekend? Let me know down in the comments section!

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 Rosalía 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…
