No Trivia

August Picks.


  • Jay-Z & Kanye West, Watch The Throne: Production-wise, this is just massive, but it’s ultimately a weirdly timid, mindful epic that is perfectly in-tune, not depressingly out of touch, with the current economic times. You should probably listen harder!
  • Lil Wayne, Tha Carter IV: Wayne out of jail and not all that interested in proving himself to anybody so eat a dick, slinks back to the formula for the first and best edition of Tha Carter. A very good, very solid rap album.
  • DDm, TV Killed The Radio Star: He was one of Baltimore’s best rappers before he was Baltimore’s first out, gay rapper and this little, ambitious EP is more of the same, which is its own kind of statement. Then, it hits you in the gut with “Last On Ur Dial.”
  • The Weeknd, Thursday: The-Dream-isms mix with Garbage Version 2.0-esque rock, gorgeous glitch, dub, and acoustic soul. Like the “ass to ass” scene from Requiem For A Dream in the form of a bummer slow jams album. A grower.
  • Median, The Sender: Sensitive, nerdy-in-a-good-way NC MC teams up with a reunited Phonte and 9th Wonder and makes a warm even kinda cloud-rappy follow up to his debut. Tigallo sings and raps, 9th and friends hand over weird but boom-bap enough beats.
