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!

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 …

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.…

If you live in the United States, chances are, you have a credit card (or a few). According to a recent study, over half of the people living in the United States have a credit card. Credit cards are almost necessary with credit scores ruling over your life. If it's high, you're good! But if your credit score doesn't look too hot, it can have a negative impact on your life. Just having one late payment can do some serious damage to your credit score. But despite these negatives, there are a lot of positives when it comes to credit cards. If you are thinking about getting your first credit card or thinking a…
