Rejjie Snow - Dear Annie (Album Review)

Rejjie Snow, a Dublin born hip-hop artist, is one of the most innovative, interesting and exciting things to happen to rap since Kendrick Lamar. Going into this project I'd never heard any of Rejjie's music before but coming out of this project I'm buzzing. Rejjie has such a uniquely excellent flow and a great ear for lowkey beats. This project thoroughly reminded me of Tyler, The Creator's Goblin and Wolf which are two astoundingly innovative projects. Rejjie also adopts a very laidback, interestingly captivating flow that leads to you becoming enticed into this album as it leads through track after track for a well-worth-your-time 40 minutes.

I'm a big fan of the track "Rainbows" which takes on the genre of pop rap, but it seems a lot different to the rest of the others like it. And I particularly enjoyed the interview segments in between the songs, and as some of you avid readers may know,  I love a concept album they just make for a more interesting listening. I'm not the biggest fan of the direction hip-hop is going in, and I've never been the biggest fan of UK rap. However, this album gives me hope, and I really hope that this sparks a change in rap because I'm not happy seeing Lil Yachty getting the sort of attention he is. Listen to this album and support real rap.

50. LCD Soundsystem - American Dream  LCD Soundsystem returned this year after a long time being split up, and it was the year of reunions with everyone seeming to put their differences aside and rake in their money with a big tour. However, LCD produced one of the stand out albums of the year, a side step from their previous projects and produced more anthemic songs. There's some real stand out tracks of the year on this album, it's just a shame about that Microsoft Paint cover.

I'm not the biggest fan of Prog Rock, but then again maybe I'm just not listening to the right stuff. However, TMEE fall into this genre and they've released one of my albums of the year. Whilst chatting to them about it as part of my 'Introducing...' series it was extremely interesting to hear about the making of the album, it's big influences and that strangely wonderful album cover. A must listen for Prog Rock fan…

Introducing... Space4Lease

Whether you like it or not Psych Rock is back... with a vengeance. There's so many bands bursting on to the scene at the moment and one of the most exciting is Space4Lease. It's hard to describe their music other than saying it's the bands personality, incarnate. Recent single, If It's True, is probably one of their best to date with a strong, power ballad feeling yet such raw emotion behind it. Space4Lease are really catapulting themselves into super stardom and it's time to jump on the bandwagon.

Q. Firstly, the age old question of what does your name mean and where did it come
Walt Blythe: It can be a pretty uninteresting story haha. In March/April of 2014,
Grayson and I were freshly writing songs and not yet playing shows. We had been
recording but hadn’t settled on a band name. As we were driving back to Brandon’s
studio after taking a break to brainstorm ideas, we happened to drive past a sign that
read Space For Lease. We weren’t sure on it at first but …

Introducing... NAMES

NAMES are a band hailing from Wales, a music scene that appears to be bursting at the seams at the moment with phenomenal acts such as Boy Azooga, Estrons & We're No Heroes it's easy to see why a lot of labels are focusing their attention on that area. NAMES are different though, more sincere and genuine than a lot of musical acts out there with a voice to die for and the melodies to match. Their single "Limb By Limb" is an absolute cracker and I recommend checking it out immediately.

Question. Why did you call yourselves NAMES?
Ioan Hazell:
We always felt that Names had a refreshing sense of anonymity (it was also what we had written as the title of the list of potential band names.
Joey Robbins: The fact that it's such an unusual name, and the kind of mysterious vibe it carries appealed to us.

Q. Was there ever the thought process that it was never going to get you to the top of a google search?
Yeah, thats an unfortunate truth of it, it forces people to le…
