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 …

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…
