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!
