Buckle up! MF DOOM is back, accompanied by his new prodigy the 18-year old New York native, Bishop Nehru! So, sit back ladies and gents’ and enjoy the raw lyricism of the young rapper Bishop Nehru alongside the musical and lyrical genius of MF Doom. That being said do not expect the album to be chock full of Doom verses, however the few songs, which he is on, are more than fire, and Bishop Nehru is growing into a prospective great with his performance.

alt j alt-J: Musicians or Storytellers?

Release Date: 9/22/14
Rating: 9/10

alt-J’s second studio album is more than just a collection of songs. It is a holistic work of art, which has lately become something of a rarity in popular music. This album not only succeeds musically, but also as a piece of poetry, and a true example of innovation in today’s music scene.

Chet Faker – A Golden Show

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014 by Leandra Caprini-Rosica

Show Date: 9/10/14

Rating: 9/10

“You gotta know, I’m feeling love…” the repeated lyrics from Chet Fakers single, ‘Gold’, accurately describe how I feel about the Melbourne, Australia native and his self-produced music making it onto the charts. The relaxed twenty-three year old, Nicholas James Murphy, goes by the stage name of Chet Faker. As there is already an Australian musician by the name of Nick Murphy, he created this stage name in an ode to inspiring jazz musician Chet Baker. Faker took on the name when he uploaded his first cover of Blackstreet’s “No Diggity” in 2011.

The Kooks Go In A New Direction For Their Fourth Studio Album

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014 by Lauren Puleo

Listen_The_Kooks_cover The Kooks: Listen

Release Date: 9/8/14

Rating: 8/10

Well, well, well, it looks like the Kooks are gettin’ kind of funky here. Listen has been described as having some ska and even hip-hop influences from this traditionally indie rock band from Britain. This is such a deviation from their norm that if Luke Prichard didn’t have such a unique voice, this album wouldn’t even be recognizable as the Kooks. Because of that, this newest release rubs some people the wrong way, but personally I can dig it. (more…)
