Taylor Swift is an American singer and songwriter. With several albums under her belt and an expansive career for nearly 20 years, she releases her eighth studio album, folklore. folklore was actually a surprise album where she announced the album less than 24 hours of its release. I wasn't too big on her previous album, Lover, so I had mixed feelings about her next album. However, after listening to folklore and hearing the positive reviews, it definitely makes me think this is Taylor Swift's best album yet.

The first track from the album is the 1. The first thing that you notice is that it is stripped ba…

Sir Robert Bryson Hall II, or more known by his stage name Logic, is an American rapper and songwriter. If you watched the latest episode of my podcast, you heard that he officially retired once the album came out.

The first track from the album is the introduction and title track, No Pressure. It opens up with a relaxed and chillhop type beat. It also features Thalia, w…

The Beths are an indie pop and rock band from New Zealand. I first heard about The Beths from their debut album in 2018 titled Future Me Hates Me. While it was an okay debut album, I knew they had a lot of potential especially since I loved a lot of the tracks on the album. When I heard they were going to release another album this year, I knew I had to take a listen to it, and they definitely improved. Jump Rope Gazers marks their second studio album.

The first track from the album is I'm Not Getting Excited. The track opens up with a blaring guitar line that imitates a siren. The beat is so simplistic, but i…

Louis The Child is an American production duo from Chicago. The group is made up of Robby Hauldren and Frederic Kennett. Ever since hearing some of their tracks from car commercials, or just commercials in general, it got me hooked to the group. They have been gaining popularity over the past few years and have finally released their debut album, Here For Now.

The first track from the album is just a quick introduction track titled Scooter's Debut (Intro). You have a distorted sound clip that opens up the track, then suddenly has a fake radio broadcast that slowly transitions into the next track, Big Love, whi…
