Arcade Fire – Reflektor (video)


This might be the only album in the past 2 years that I have had my hopes high for. I just HOPE that its as good as The Suburbs, that’s going to be a hard one to top. This is supposed to be the intro song to the new album so I’m not sure where they are going to take it after this song. My nerves eat at me whenever I listen to this song, my hopes are that high. I hate when people tell me that The Funeral was better than The Suburbs, I can go on all day about why it was not. The Suburbs is probably the only album that I haven’t removed from my pod since it first came out. Anyways October 29th is the date and I for one will be ready.

Kanye West – Yeezus (Album Review)


Kanye West’s status has risen and he’s in the public eye even more now than ever, so let see what’s happened to him musically.

1. “On Sight”

Satchford: With Daft Punk on the beat, I knew Tron would come to mind. This is some futuristic, do the robot on a motorcycle type music. That soul sample that comes in is crazy and the intro verse set it all up that Yeezy season has come again. Its different, but im digging it.

Yeezy season approaching
Fuck whatever y’all been hearing
Fuck what, fuck whatever y’all been wearing
A monster about to come alive again
Soon as I pull up and park the Benz
We get this bitch shaking like Parkinsons

S.G.: I’m not feeling that sound at the beginning of the song, it’s annoying. I like the soul break featuring the Holy Name of Mary Choral Family. The rest of the song seems kind of choppy and it doesn’t really provide a persistent rhythm. Yet I appreciate Kanye’s attempt to bring something different to the game.

2. “Black Skinhead”

Satchford: The overall feel of this reminds me of the african performance during Coming To America. Some true tribal music. Love Lockdown? You hear that yelling in the background? He spazzed on this. The SNL performance was dope too.

Middle America packed in
Came to see me in my black skin
Number one question they asking
Fuck every question you asking
If I don’t get ran out by Catholics
Here come some conservative Baptists
Claiming I’m overreacting
Like them black kids in Chiraq bitch

S.G.: I like how this song starts out similar to one of those songs that they would play at the beginning of basketball games.
They see a black man with a white woman at the top floor they going to try to come to kill King Kong
I enjoy the chorus, it’s got a nice build up to it. Those drums are hitting so hard, definitely Rick Rubin inspired. Continue reading

Chuck Inglish – Droptops EP (album review)


The release of this project kind of caught me by surprise. Now the first thing that pops in my head is will his solo album, Convertibles, still drop on May 31st?? I sure hope so because When Fish Ride Bicycles left a sour taste in my mouth. Chuck usually doesn’t drop any mixtapes except for instrumentals so my expectations for this project were a collage of singles that he released over the past year. Nevertheless it deserves some attention. Continue reading

Calez – Distant Brothers


Off his new mixtape entitled “Too Broke Tape”, this song definitely stands out to me. I thought that this tape was going to be an original productions type of project but nah. I seen he on that “5.0 Conversations” by Dom Kennedy. Enjoy

Wiz Khalifa – ONIFC (album review)


To tell you the truth I almost forgot about this album this year. But with the release of Taylor Allderdice I had to take a listen to Wiz’s newest project. I figured that this album would get me heated especially after that “Work Hard, Play Hard” bull that he put out. Anyways here’s what you can expect to hear if you haven’t purchased this album yet.
