ye album by kanye west


The latest album from the bipolar, producer, rapper and cultural lightning rod, which Kanye West debuted last night in Jackson Hole, Wyoming last night, is…short, yet still manages to flaunt his famous and collaborators in cameos from the likes of John LegendTy Dolla $ign, Charlie Wilson, and Nicki Minaj.

BLACK THOUGHT album Streams of Thought Vol_1


It defies possibility that after nearly 25 solid years in the music industry and legendary status, this solo project is Black Thought’s first. The five-track EP clocks in at just 17 minutes and features guest appearances from RapsodyStyles P, and KIRBY, and is produced entirely by 9th Wonder and The Soul Council.

VARIOUS ARTISTS album African Scream Contest 2

VARIOUS ARTISTS “African Scream Contest 2”

Finally, a sequel to the legendary African Scream Contest in 2008. Samy Ben Redjeb, who owns the Analog Africa record label, has done another fabulous job in licensing these cuts.  

neko case hell on

NEKO CASE “Hell-on”

Veteran Neko Case’s vocal cords and singing voice remain what she is best known for, but on her 7th full-length solo album, both lyrics and vocal arrangements, set up and LP that is well-stocked with catchy tunes with a side of simmering rage. Among its 11 tracks are some of the poppiest arrangements of Case’s career, a few labyrinthine slow-burners and a couple of songs that serve as reminders of her distinctive style. 

father john misty Gods Favorite Customer

FATHER JOHN MISTY “God’s Favorite Customer”

Father John Misty aka Josh Tillman’s fourth album under the Father John Misty moniker sounds shockingly simplistic and minimal. This back to the effort was made and conceived over 2 months in a New York City hotel room. 

Natalie Prass album The Future and the Past

NATALIE PRASS “The Future and the Past”

The Richmond, Virginia-born soul-pop singer, Natalie Prass’s second album draws on funk, disco, and R&B influences to promote strength in unity. Prass has evolved from the delicate strings that made her indie famous in favor of funk, disco and R&B which no doubt is one of 2018’s minor masterpieces, which you can most certainly dance to.

KITTEN album Pink Champagne

KITTEN “Pink Champagne”

The Los Angeles glam-power-synth-pop outfit, Kitten, released their debut album back in 2014. Now, four years and a new lineup later, they’re getting ready to release a new EP, Pink Champagne. The band is still fronted by the charismatic Chloe Chaidez who sparkles on this album.
