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.

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…
