Current Favourites

Day 68: “What are your current favorite songs?” I have been disappointed in a lot of music lately. I kind of got stuck in the past a bit by doing the 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You DIe. I go through the weekly new song on Spotify, but only a few songs are not […]

#1080 Hookworms – Microshift

This is the final album. I completed my mission for 2020, since I am writing this 2020 December 31. My challenges for 2021 while change to creative writing. Hookworms‘ third and final album Microshift was released in 2018. The band dissolved due to false accusations against the lead singer Matthew Johnson. The accusations came via […]

#1079 SZA – Ctrl

SZA released her debut album Ctrl in 2017. The album was supposed to be released in 2015, but SZA experienced some health issues. Eventually, the recorded company took away her hard drive and released it. The album was a critical and commercial success. I have not heard her music until today. All the songs carry […]

#1078 Kelela – Take Me Apart

Another artist I have never heard of is Kelela, yet she released the critical acclaimed debut album Take Me Apart in 2018. Critics praised her for the innovative production, songwriting and vocals. My favourite songs are “Frontline”, “Take Me Apart”, “Enough”, and “Truth or Dare”. Overall, if you like electro-R&B, alternative R&B, and electronica music, […]

#1076 Lorde – Melodrama

Lorde (Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O’Connor) released her second album Melodrama in 2017. I do not know much about her, except that she is a Jew-hating “bigot”. My favourite songs are “Supercut”, “Green Light”, “Sober”, and “Hard Feelings/Loveless”. Overall, I think the album is really good, but I find it hard to separate the artist from […]

The xx released their third album I See You in 2017 to critical success. I was a fan immediately. I love the vocals of Oliver Sim and Romy Madley Croft; they are perfect together. My favourite songs are “I Dare You” (probably one of my favourite songs), “On Hold”, “Say Something Loving”, “A Violent Noise”, […]

#1073 Skepta – Konnichiwa

Skepta is a British rapper. I dislike most rap so I have not heard his album Konnichiwa before today. It is Skepta’s fourth studio album. It was met with critical acclaim. Question: What is worse than American rap? British rap. I did not like anything on this crappy album. Overall, even the British accent cannot […]
