Recommended Posts

posting random 10 albums of the week i both recommend and not recommend at the same time.

https://rateyourmusic.com/~Mhutto6214 and https://www.albumoftheyear.org/user/polgg48/ for live update


3/2/2023 week


the not-so-much calm after storm of releases last week, it's shania twain and raye time along with other neckbeard losers


Evita Manji - Spandrel?


Evita Manji - Spandrel?


another sophie demo toolkit leftover for this atmospheric depressive art pop, overwhelming demo production over vocal processing and laying mixes that sound pretty rough and ambiguous. listen for visual and ambition than contents itself.

fav: Pitch Black, XYZ / Labyrinth, Closer to Midnight       


파란노을 [Parannoul] - After the Magic


파란노을 [Parannoul] - After the Magic


current talk of the town album with incredible catalog to back up for renown korean shoegaze dream pop. the production visibility clearly shows impressive structures which hard to replicate, not much to dive deep into low effort visual and monotone pacing.

fav: We Shine at Night, Polaris, Blossom 


Young Fathers - Heavy Heavy


Young Fathers - Heavy Heavy


potential album of the album of hipsters sheepies. the blend usage of art pop, experimental, neo-soul and indietronica, as always, is spectacular and out with explosive visuals. sonically tense to produce as otherworldly abstract as much without quality boundaries that continue existing throughout their career.

fav: geronimo, i saw, be your lady


The Go! Team - Get Up Sequences Part Two


The Go! Team - Get Up Sequences Part Two


upbeat gym ready indietronica noise indie pop funky theme unlike much mellow version on their part one. the maximalism sound probably too much for whom not familiar with them while better cohesiveness and enlighten sunshine visual following assigned.

fav: The Me Frequency, Whammy, Train Song






for once, he's showing his age (35) for more genuine contents than regular pop punk with career's retrospective and his relationship. though most tracks are staying trashes by autopilot overdone formula, this is more about transitioning to his brighter future.

fav:  single mothers, shelter, avril's song


Carol Biazin - REVERSA


Carol Biazin - REVERSA


follow up project by brazilian pop chanteuse that serves non-traditional funk element as other brazil acts. for some reasons, tacky image and pretentious demeanor significantly drag down non-flavor music to question whether she takes her career serious or not at all.







coincidence not with dave rowntree earlier week then former blur bandmate graham coxon woah on his new side project with the pipettes's rose elinor dougall. their chemistry here isnt work well, desyncing dynamic progression on this art rock feel forced to be too complex over most coxon efforts, great songwriting but underwhelming result what could this achieve.

fav: Someone Up There, Undine, Can I Call You  


jonatan leandoer96 - Sugar World


jonatan leandoer96 - Sugar World


rapper yung lean reverse alter ego act on traditional pop rock mostly just him and piano. once again, his vocal got charm attractive that relatable on rap beat or over this glam influence like cheering your friend singing off-key on karaoke bars. moods

fav: Blue Light, Nightmare Amusement Park  


Sunny War - Anarchist Gospel


Sunny War - Anarchist Gospel


risky idea when artist relentless thought about exploring more genres and alienate old sound. her new album attempting blue rock with psychedelic soul sort of camp fire beer and wing about that genre, it's pretty loose collection whether track still sound folk or loud mixing on those upbeat ones. inconsistent record and lack of oomph soul spark to make this standout.

fav: shelter and storm, hopeless, whole 


The Smashing Pumpkins - ATUM - Act II


The Smashing Pumpkins - ATUM - Act II


most complain about act i was it being too robotic and merely existed with mediocre lyrics, for act ii, billy's vocal improves emotional wise and good control pacing, the new issue is how inconsistent the album production is, shaky weird choice of structures, errie non-sensibleness melodies that sound not pleasure and questionable. not looking good but act iii in april might change opinions.

fav: To The Grays, Night Waves, Beguiled

I heard some Tank and the Bangas songs but it didn't really grab me. They seem interesting though.

Maybe that Emeli album has a few good songs...

Inconsistent but it’s breakbeat/icm so just how it is. Based rpg game ost.

fav: brown chaos, shulem’s theme, unless

Cheeky lyrics to make up non bridge or instrument solo on this industrial rap rock. They should do full punk next.

Yaya bey - remember your north star

cozy alicia keys vibe r&b that remind me of noname album instead. nothing outstanding to me though.

Sax+piano solo on wowzer blackgaze album. Lack of variation/one-noted but storytelling and atmospheric are incredible.

fav: colorblind, crawl, come back

once the kinks off (uncle rap, cringe bars, messy dated beat, gross autotune) it’s non-stop solid bangers from front to back.

self-awareness is cute, what will be next album title im curious. Questionable rap tracks all around and made only for his old fans

8th July 2022




Journey - Freedom


not sound out of place continuous from their 80's albums but BAD MIXING, take forever to finish 5min+ on every tracks too

fav: Don't Give Up On Us, Still Believe In Love, United We Stand




Viagra Boys - Cave World


punk post-pandemic politic/society theme, lyrics are quite more serious tone and really awkward to bop in there. nailed it

fav: Baby Criminal, Add, Aint No Thief




Laura Veirs - Found Light


quartet jazz element over her folk based on this smooth library tour album, favor for nerd and tacky on pop rock's last track

fav: Time Will Show You, My Lantern, Ring Song




Westside Gunn - Peace "Fly" God


samples are standout and slay here, carefree bars and funsy rap are sweet treat on yet to come his next full album soon

Wu-Lu - Loggerhead


UK experimental hiphop act, too much reverb it hurts my nerve, girl pls. few last post-punk tracks low-key saved this mess

Katy J Pearson - Sound of the Morning


huge stevie nicks influence for scenic driving on your weekend leisure. album matches the cover, fresh fun happiness for all

fav: Storm To Pass, Riverbed, Alligator

this grindcore is great because of the refreshing "punk" format with instruments effect varieties. quite unique on its own

Caterina Barbieri - Spirit Exit


squeaky hypnotic electronic, the dynamic and pacing are whole experience to amaze you on transcending dimension.

fav: Transfixed, Broken Melody




Kota the Friend - MEMO


wordplays and flows are solid but that's about it, boring coffee shop lofi beat and boring uninspired contents. eyeroll






Blind Channel - Lifestyles Of The Sick & Dangerous

fav: Balboa, We Are Not Saints, Dont Fix Me

15th July 2022




black midi - Hellfire


less instant than last one, short album isn't work on this storyline and dive into more avant-prog side. still black still midi

fav: The Race Is About To Begin, Dangerous Liaisons, Welcome To Hell




Interpol - The Other Side of Make-Believe


quality-wise they blindly crawl back and successfully do so. thanks to producers because band now badly washed and suck. 

fav: Renegade Hearts, Fables, Something Changed




Ne-Yo - Self Explanatory


like album to pull off for getting out of contract, tacky lyrics and weird singing/rap all over the places. he got decent career so... 

fav: After Party, Proud of You, Want It All or Nothing




Lloyd Banks - The Course Of The Inevitable 2


total flip from part 1, his nostalgia rap back while keeping most underground in check, not surprise its clunky work in all consider.

fav: Trapped, Value of a Check, On My Way




Working Men's Club - Fear Fear


new rave/synthpop that understand the assignments always welcome, feel more like gym playlist and more upbeat than peers.

fav: Heart Attack, Ploys, 19





Jay Chou - Greatest Works of Art 


case study of mid life crisis all in one album, his boyish image/visual/sound here reminisce of his first 4 albums. guy is 43

fav: 紅顏如霜 (Cold Hearted), 錯過的煙火 (You Are The Firework I Missed), 我是如此相信 (I Truly Believe)




Senses Fail - Hell Is In Your Head


grade 6 probably compose better lyrics than these guys, questionable pop-punk creative direction. mindless bops though.

fav: Miles to Go, Lush Rimbaugh, The Fire Sermon




Lera Lynn - Something More Than Love


heavily prioritize dream pop this time and few number of americana, her relaxing/yassified songwriting remains impeccable.

fav: Golden Sun, I'm Your Kamikaze, title track




Mantar - Pain Is Forever And This Is The End


crystal clean mixing sludge metal here that i cant stop giggling on his raspy vocal for more than 40 min. alice cooper could neva.

fav: Hang 'Em Low, Piss Ritual, Odysseus




Jeff Beck & Johnny Depp - 18


butcher set of jeff old demo adding few solo riffs and depp singing is painful, half-baked till the point that becomes unlistenable.

fav: Caroline, No, Don't Talk, Midnight Walker (all of these are instrumental)

acoustic rock this time to make excuse that he doesnt make another satire album every year. weirdly additive on melodies.
