The band has had a few members come and go along the way, but has always been a project of Peter Silberman. While never having commercial success, their fans favorite (and probably a cult classic) would be Hospice which has many hidden meanings behind it. The Antlers disappeared for a bit after their 2014 album, Familiars , but have returned seven years later with their sixth studio album, Green to Gold .   The first track we have from the album is Strawflower . The track starts with some silence, but then a drone from some synth starts to come in. That also fad

I had originally reviewed their fifth studio album, The Main Thing about a year ago. I was surprised to see that they were releasing a new project, except as an EP since it was so close to their previous project. Half a Human marks their latest EP.   The first track from the EP is Desire Path . This is exactly what I would have expected from Real Estate to start off the project. You get your layer of different guitar instruments, but you also get some orchestral strings that add a nice touch. The only thing that did surprise, or sho

You may have seen the review of Healer , which actually came out a year ago. Grouplove surprised nearly everyone with this release since they usually wait awhile before releasing new music. While this is only nine tracks long, they really put the high energy tracks onto this album. This Is This marks the bands' fifth studio album. The first track from the album is Primetime . I was definitely not expecting the album to start out this way, especially with what we received on Healer . At least this track made me excited for a Grouplove album again. You ha

While they got their start in the 90s and early 2000s, they broke up in 2006. They reunited in 2011 for a reunion show, but quickly disbanded after that. They again reunited in 2016 and started to tour a bit. Now, 16 years after their previous album, we finally get a new album titled As Days Get Dark . The first track from their album is The Turning of Our Bones . It opened up exactly as I would have expected, expect with some more hints of electronic pieces, such as the hand claps and some of the other percussive beats. I

You may remember him from a previous review of mine, A Letter to My Younger Self . He has now arrived with his fourth studio album, Change of Scenery II . This is actually a follow up to his 2015 EP titled Change of Scenery . The first track from the album is We Made This Album In Newport . Judging by the title, you can probably tell that this is just an introduction to the album, and it's also just under a minute in length. There really isn't too much going on instrumentally or vocally. We do ha

While originally being a founding member of Young Money Entertainment, he later created his own label in 2011. Curren$y seems to never sleep since he is always creating new mixtapes, EPs, albums, you name it. Collection Agency marks Curren$y's tenth studio album. The first track from the project is Kush Through The Sunroof . I was expecting something a bit more loud and adventurous to start off the project, but it's pretty minimalist with the piano part. We also have some other notes and t
