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 …

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…

Album Review: ZUU by Denzel Curry

Denzel Curry is an American singer, rapper, and songwriter. ZUU was released on May 31, 2019 and marks Denzel Curry's fourth studio album. This album pays homage to his roots in Miami, Florida.

The first track of the album is the title track, ZUU. Zuu is a nickname for Carol City, which is a suburb in Miami. Denzel Curry talks about how he made a lot of money when he was in Miami, but now that he made some money, it is time for him to move out of the "Zuu". Even though he moved out, he's still giving credit to his home town Carol City, and the Miami-Dade area as a whole. The end of the track hints towards the next track, RICKY.

RICKY is the second track off the album and the first single Denzel Curry dropped for this project. This song actually pays tribute to Curry's father. This song takes us back to his childhood. His father, Ricky, would tell Denzel Curry stories from his childhood, as well as advice. Basically, his dad helped him grow up in Carol City and to…
