Albums I'm Looking Forward To: 6/28/19

With June coming to a close, we have some pretty great albums coming up for the end of the month! Keep on reading to find some new music that is going to be released this weekend!

1. ANIMA by Thom Yorke
June has been an interesting month for Thom Yorke. First, one of his storage devices for old Radiohead media was stolen and the person who stole it decided to blackmail them. The storage device contained demos and b-sides around the OK Computer era. Second, Thom Yorke is releasing a solo album AND a Netflix one-reeler. While it is debuting on Thursday, I felt like I had to include it in this list. A lot of these tracks have been debuted at concerts, but never had a physical release. While it might be more of a b-side album, Thom Yorke has released a lot of promising albums in the past.


2. Bandana by Freddie Gibbs & Madlib
 Freddie Gibbs had an eventful 2018, with releases such as Freddie and the collaboration project, Fetti. Now, in 2019, he is collaborating with an incredible producer, DJ, and rapper, Madlib. Madlib hasn't released a solo or collaborative project in a few years, but he is definitely one of the greats. He produced one of the best hip hop albums of the 2000s, Madvillainy. I am especially excited for the Killer Mike feature! Check out one of the singles from the album, Giannis.

3. Let's Rock by The Black Keys
Five years after their last album, The Black Keys are finally releasing a new album! While The Black Keys have been around for quite some time, it wasn't until the early 2010s when they started to put out some solid projects and gather some attention. Out of the singles I have heard so far, it will be interesting to hear a new project from them. Check out the single Go below.

4. Voyager by 311
While I am not a huge 311 fan, they have released some solid rock reggae singles in their 30+ year run. From the singles I have heard, it sounds like they are moving to a more average American reggae style. Check out the single Don't You Worry.


What albums are you looking forward to this weekend? Let me know down in the comments section.

Despite quarantine and lockdowns, she has been keeping busy by recording new music, as well as re-recording some of her older albums, due to some legal battles with her old record label. evermore marks her second album this year and her ninth studio album overall. The first track from the album is willow . The first thing I notice is that she continues to utilize that folk pop sound in her music, just like her previous album a few months back. It definitely is more upbeat and includes more ins
