Brand New Music
Halsey | Manic
Baring her teeth in her 16 tracks, Manic is absolutely chaotic. A blast of pop while delicately allowing it to shine, there’s rage and depression, but also ecstasy which lies beneath the sparkling exterior here. Halsey’s very specific nature of her lyrics open this 25-year-old thoughts to the world culminating in her most complete work to date.
Mac Miller | Circles
An exploratory musical journey as there ever was for a posthumous record, this album is chocked full of what we all loved about Mac Miller: buzzy synths, grooves for days, and a nod to influences of soft rock, pop and emo-rap. Playing like more of a continuation of his previous LP Swimming – there remains a funk, soulful truth to his music that seem a little more poignant now that he’s gone.
070 Shake | Modus Vivendi
A debut album as valuable as any other in the electronic and pop landscapes, 070 Shake goes well beyond any pigeon-hole of hip hop, electronic, pop, or whatever you want to call this. Painting a vivid, jarring, uncomfortable, yet very appealing picture, this LP throws the rulebook out the window and highlights an artist at the very top of her game with a lot more to come.
