Three Albums I'm Looking Forward To: 5/10/19

A lot of people ask me, "What is your favorite day of the week?" I always answer with, "Friday, of course!" This may surprise a lot of people because as an educator, I still have to work on Fridays. However, Friday is the main day where musical artists release albums. That alone, to me, is a great reason to LOVE Fridays! To kick it off, here are some albums I am looking forward to this weekend!

1. Confessions of a Dangerous Mind by Logic

Logic has been on a hot streak the past two years. He released two mixtapes in 2018 (Bobby Tarantino II and YSIV) and is set to release his second project of 2019 this Friday. While I wasn't too hype on his first single, Keanu Reeves, his other two singles made up for it. This will mark Logic's sixth album. This also means that we are getting an album, not a mixtape, so there will be a different vibe to it compared to the last two mixtapes he released. However, this will definitely be a release you do NOT want to miss!

2. Here Comes The Cowboy by Mac DeMarco
Ever since I heard Salad Days during my sophomore year of college, I fell in love with Mac DeMarco. I had to listen to anything and everything that had to do with Mac DeMarco. What made it even better? He was a weird and quirky guy, just like me. This new album will definitely be more of a slow, darker album. I assume it will be similar to This Old Dog.

3. Beauty Marks by Ciara

Ciara was the epitome of mid 2000s pop music. While her later albums haven't charted as well, this is still something to look forward to. She has been featured on songs from other artists every now and then to where she still has some credibility. Her feature on Bow Wow's Like You will always be a bop, fight me.

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…
