Kid Cudi: satellite flight the journey to mother moon

kid-cudi-satellite-flight

Kid cudi has never really stood out to me, with pursuit of happiness being my personal favourite song of his. I thought I would give his latest album a listen too. With Kid cudi featuring heavily on various others albums, I wanted to see what he could produce on his own this year. I did not expect great things for this album but have heard many good things about this album so..

The 1975: The 1975

The_1975_debut_album_cover

After several EP’s and many singles later, The 1975 finally released a debut album. With over 200 plays on each track in my Itunes library you could say this album is slightly catchy. I was sceptical the first time I listened to this album, this was because the catchiness and perfect rhythms of ‘chocolate’ would be hard to keep up throughout a full LP. Matty Healy and co pull off a well written and relatable lyrics, this is mixed with great variety in backing tracks and vocals. 2013 was a very successful year for this band…

Metronomy: Love letters

Metronomy-Love-Letters-608x608

After not releasing a single for quite a while since their album ‘The English Riviera’ Metronomy have returned. If you are fed up of hearing the same sounding strong guitar riffs and catchy beats of various indie bands, then Metronomy are a band you want to be listening to. The unique sound of this band makes for an enjoyable listen if you personally fancy a change, English Riviera was great for this and I hope for much of the same with this album…

If you have ever played Fifa 2014 then you will be unknowingly familiar with this band. American Authors are an indie rock band who are based in the bright lights of New York city. The band is fairly new to scene popularity wise, I mean the only reason I stumbled across this band was through googling the lyrics to ‘Best day of my life’. I wanted to find out who sang this unbelievably catchy song, Imagine Dragons was my first guess but I was wrong. Im glad I found this band, if you’re ever in a rubbish mood or feel bad, this is a great mood changer.. Continue reading

Pharrell: G I R L

Pharrell Williams was probably one of the most successful individuals of the past year. Get lucky is what kicked off Pharrell’s return to the industry, and what a return it has been. Pharrell has popped up everywhere, featuring on Jay-z’s album and Robin Thicke just to name a couple. Blurred lines and Get lucky are probably two of 2013’s biggest tracks. What can Pharrell produce on his own though?

I have always enjoyed listening to rap, and Childish Gambino is lyrically one of the best with relatable topics and quirky lines. Whether or not he could keep this up for a full album is another story…

Queens of the stone age: …like clockwork

Yes okay i’m late to jump on the band wagon in reviewing this album but it is definitely one of 2013’s greats. The striking rhythm and drum beat on this album are second to none, this is well contrasted to the slower paced songs… Continue reading
