Albums I Am Currently Listening To

I have been listening to this EP by the band Softwave a lot since I bought it through their bandcamp page. The Danish band is one of the few bands in the synthpop genre that I am excited about lately. I wish more people were aware of their existence. Their music is pretty dope in my book.

Another band whose music I downloaded through bandcamp that I absolutely love. I listened to it yesterday at work and loved all three tracks. I definitely recommend downloading the EP.

Just picked up this album from the library today. I am definitely a fan and as someone whose taste in music is usually not in the r and b genre, it really speaks volumes.

Totally digging the new Ayria album. I like it a lot more than Plastic Makes Perfect.

My current favorite album right now.

Really terrific debut EP by hip hop artist Lucy Camp.

Music to check out

Today I heard some excellent synthpop music  via Bandcamp. It is hard to say which is my personal favorite because I love Purple Fog Side . They are awesome. 

Normally I don't repost an album/EP I already posted here but I will make an exception with the debut EP by the synthpop act from Denmark Softwave Their EP is so damn good, it is a crime that I am the only person who has downloaded their EP on their bandcamp page.

Random Observations of the Week

"Rebel Rebel" is still my favorite David Bowie song.

Really loving the new Tegan and Sara single "Boyfriend"

Too bad the timing of their concert in September comes right before I go back to Chicago to the bands Belly and Lush.

I can't believe my favorite Siouxsie and The Banshees album is 30 years old.

It has been a week since Prince passed away. It is so surreal.

My favorite Kendrick Lamar song at the moment is "King Kunta".

Favorite album to listen to on a rainy day hands down

My current favorite album

Two artists who needs to go away: Iggy Azalea and Azealia Banks. Every time they open their mouths, nothing but stupid comes out, especially Iggy.

Beyonce seriously needs new fans. I am no fan of Rachael Ray but she certainly didn't deserve the attack by the Beyhive.

One of my personal favorite albums that I think is grossly underrated.

My Favorite Albums From the '90s: Lovelife by Lush

Don't get me wrong, I do love Split and I adore Spooky but for me personally, my favorite Lush album is easily Lovelife. Lovelife has always resonated with me much more than the band's first two albums. I suppose it was then I really became a big fan of the band because of songs like "Ladykillers", "500" and "Ciao!". 21 years later I still love this album.

Album of the Week: Midnight Machines by LIGHTS

Ever since I first heard Midnight Machine by LIGHTS on Spotify a few weeks ago, I have been listening to her album religiously. It is quickly becoming one of my favorite releases in 2016. I like how LIGHTS reinterprets her music by giving them a stripped down, acoustic sound. LIGHTS' previous album Little Machines was very good without a shadow of a doubt but I really enjoy how songs from that album sounds as acoustic tracks especially "Meteorites" and "Running With The Boys".
