FEATURE: 5 New Albums You Need To Buy This Month
This month has been dominated by some great rap albums so if this list seems to have an overrepresentation of rap music then that’s the reason why. Honourable mentions go out to Lana Del Ray and Bring Me The Horizon, I didn’t like their new albums but I know they are pretty popular and well received so I shall leave them here. Now onto the top 5.
Travis Scott – Rodeo
A great Atlanta rap album from Kanye West protégé Travis Scott. It is dark and gritty, however is more fleshed out than Travis’ last releases. The production is a standout and so are the features on this album. One of the best rap albums of the year so definitely worth checking out.
Low – Ones and Sixes
Congrats to the only non-rap album on this list. Low has been around for over 20 years and it is amazing that they are still able to be creative and push themselves to this day. This album is tense and beautiful and is just amazing that an album of this magnitude can come from a band that has been around for so long.
Jay Rock – 90059
Jay Rock returns after 4 years of silence with a great album that has some fantastic gritty production and great lyricism. Jay is not afraid to experiment and take risks on this album and it really helps to make this album stand out.
Mac Miller – GO:OOD AM
Mac Millers first major label debut does not disappoint. You can feel the growth of Mac as an artist on this album, from his flow to his lyrical ability. The album mixes all of Mac’s talents and blends them into a well-balanced album.
Future x Drake – What A Time To Be Alive
What a time to be alive indeed. When two of the rap games biggest artists can come together to drop an album with only a weeks’ worth of hype you know we are lucky. The album features some great production that is more suited to Future but Drake is still able to ride the beats perfectly. Even if you do not like the two artists you have to respect that they came together to release something together.
