Albums I'm Looking Forward To: 6/14/19

Here we are again, the day of the week where I go over the albums I'm excited for this weekend. As always, check out the list I came up with below!

1. Doom Days by Bastille
Bastille came to fame with their single, Pompeii, back in 2013. While I didn't care for the rest of their album, or even check out their 2016 album, I'm excited to see what they have to put out. Their 2016 album charted at #1 on the U.K. album charts, and I heard the album is going to contain a lot of synth pop songs. Nonetheless, this definitely will be one of my first albums to check out this weekend. Check out the title track of the album, Doom Days, below!


2. Years To Burn by Calexico and Iron & Wine
While I haven't checked out anything from Calexico, I am definitely an Iron & Wine fan. They dropped an amazing EP last year called Weed Garden. And who can forgot about their album in 2004, Our Endless Numbered Days? If you like mellow, acoustic guitar with a soothing voice, be sure to check this new album out! Check out one of their singles, Father Mountain.

3. False Alarm by Two Door Cinema Club
This band has always been a big name on my listening list, but I have never gotten a chance to actually listen to any of their albums. I've heard a few of their songs, but only the popular ones that a lot of people know. Now that it's summer and my schedule is a little more flexible, I am able to check out their new album! Check out one of their recent singles, Dirty Air.

What albums are you excited for this weekend? Let me know 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.…

Bandana is a collaborative project between American rapper Freddie Gibbs and American producer Madlib. This is their second collaboration together, with Piñata being the first project back in 2014. Judging by the album, these two artists work really well together and have dropped a solid album this year.

The first track is Obrigado and it is an introduction track. The first part is a small clip from Freddie Gibb's uncle. The second part took me some time to actually realize the speaker was speaking English. Obrigado is Portuguese for "thank you." The title of the track could also be a play on words of the Japanese word…
