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 …

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…
