The Top 5 Albums Of The Year SO FAR

So now that it’s July and we’re half way through the year (it’s gone so quick!), it’s time to have a look at the year so far and pick the best five albums. These are obviously my own personal picks, they may be completely different to what you may consider good or not, but that’s…

Gorillaz – The Now Now

Well who knew this was coming? Out of nowhere Gorillaz return in 14 months with a brand new album. The Now Now was entirely conceived while on tour for their previous release, Humanz. Very similar to their 2011 release, The Fall, it focuses on a more simplified sound for the fictional band, where past releases…

Luca Brasi – Stay

Luca Brasi have always been one of those bands that I knew of, but never really got around to checking out. Hailing from Tasmania and forming in 2009, the boys are pretty much veterans now with their alternative rock sound and I thought why not dive deep into their new release Stay. I happened to…

5 Seconds Of Summer – Youngblood

Never have been a big 5SOS fan, I always found their sound and brand of pop punk to be a little cheap and over produced, bit too shiny and focused on one demographic, teenage girls. But that’s fair, it works for them and they have had some success from that. They’ve had some pretty catchy…

Kids See Ghosts – Kids See Ghosts

Kanye West isn’t done yet and he has Kid Cudi with him to back him up. A week after Kanye‘s release of Ye is the next release from the “Wyoming Project”, Kids See Ghosts. Friends and collaborators for many years, it was inevitable for a Kanye West and Kid Cudi team up, one that was…

Kanye West – Ye

Kanye West, you either love him or you hate him. You know what he’s all about, you hear about it all the time, “he said this”, “he did that”. You can’t escape it. He is one of the most influential artist of our generation. His music is so effortlessly expressive and game changing, you have…

Arctic Monkeys – Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino

I wanted this album so bad, and I wanted it to be so good, but unfortunately it didn’t meet my expectations. Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino (what a title right?) is Arctic Monkeys sixth album and new music in five years since their successful and critically acclaimed album AM. I’ve been following this band from…

The Wonder Years – Sister Cities

I don’t know how The Wonder Years do it, but they consistently put out great albums. You would think their perfect run would end at some stage, and possibly album number six would be the one to do it, but Sister Cities is an outstanding album. Full of emotion and very ambitious, the band reflect…

Post Malone – Beerbongs & Bentley’s

Post Malone has become a household name in such a short amount of time, his unique vocals and popular trap style rap has sky rocketed him to major stardom, he’s weird looking and not to mention, he’s a white rapper, but nothing has stopped him from taking over everyone’s radios, and rightly so. The dude…

DMA’s – For Now

It sure feels like 1995 again with Britpop fever souring after Aussie trio DMA’s release their sophomore album For Now. After the great success of their debut album Hills End, a lot of eyes were on these guys to see whether they could write a follow up just as good, and yes, they could. The…
