The second week in July brings us another great week in music! Keep reading to find some of the albums that are being released this weekend.

1. K.R.I.T. IZ HERE by Big K.R.I.T.
After hearing his 2017 album, 4eva Is a Mighty Long Time, I was a fan. It was an amazing album that showcased his strengths and had a lot of great features as well. Big K.R.I.T. released a compilation album earlier in 2019 that was comprised of the three EPs that he released in 2018, but he's ready to come out with his fourth studio album this weekend. This album is supposed to be a sequel to his 2010 mixtape, K.R.I.T. Wuz Here, and is going to continue to go off of his southern hip-hop style. Check out one of the singles, K.R.I.T. Here.

2. Weather by Tycho
I don't know exactly how Tycho gained so much popularity from his second studio album, Dive, but it definitely turned me on to electronic and ambient music. After listening to that album, I dove into a whole new world of electronic music and I can't thank Tycho enough for it. Dive and Awake will forever be Tycho classics, and in my opinion, electronic classics, but I am excited to see where his album Weather will take us. Tycho, or Scott Hansen, will be the driving force behind the album, but has several features from Saint Sinner. While this is going to be different than the trilogy albums, he will still use some of the same elements he has used in his previous work. Check out the single Easy below!

3. Temperature's Rise by Arizonan Summer
I was a little hesitant about this one since I really don't know anything about this band, but there has been a lot of promotion behind this album. According to the information that is available, Arizonan Summer is an upcoming band in the Scottsdale, Arizona area. The title of the album, Temperature's Rise is a suitable title for the horrendous summers here in Phoenix, but there's more to the album than just that. From the promotional tracks I have heard on Facebook ads, I believe that this guy has a promising future. Be on the lookout for this album this weekend!

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.…

Allah-Las is an American indie rock band consisted of four different members. LAHS marks the band's fourth studio album. While I have always known about Allah-Las, I have never had the chance to sit down and listen to one their albums, even though they have been on my "listen to list" for a while now. Now, with the release of LAHS, I had the chance to sit down and give them a chance, and I definitely wasn't disappointed.

The album starts out with Holding Pattern. There's an easy guitar groove going on at the very beginning. Right off the bat, this reminds me of some old-school classic rock, as we…

CZARFACE is a hip hop collective formed by hip hop duo 7L & Esoteric, as well as Wu-Tang Clan's Inspectah Deck. CZARFACE has had an eventful year, starting off with CZARFACE Meets Ghostface, which is a collaborative project between CZARFACE and Ghostface Killah from Wu-Tang Clan. CZARFACE also dropped an instrumental album titled Double Dose of Danger (which I was able to snag on Record Store Day this year!) and the album I am going to be reviewing, The Odd Czar Against Us. While I just discovered CZARFACE last year, they definitely reminded me of MF DOOM, with the comic book-like characters. Both also use…
