It’s that time of the year again guys! Damn, this year has flown by real quick hasn’t it? I didn’t even have time to properly analyze all the music that’s been released this year. I’m writing this while on vacation so forgive me if this piece seems a bit rushed. Anyway, I think 2016 was a quite an incredible year for music. Although I feel underwhelmed by some releases, generally the music released was stellar. If you’re expecting to find Drake, Rihanna, Beyonce or Kanye West on this list then you’re on the wrong list. I’m only mentioning the LPs that really stood out to me and that I feel came out at significant points of these artists’ careers.
It’s interesting how these days a lot of the music I listen to is by Canadian artists. 60 % of my playlist is made up of artists such as Kaytranada, Pomo, BADBADNOTGOOD, dvsn, Majid Jordan etc and those are just the well known ones! The Canadian music scene has officially blown up and I’m totally here for it! Another artist who’s been everywhere lately is River Tiber. You might recognize him from Kaytranada’s LP “99.9%” in the song “Vivid Dreams”, but now we can get a glimpse of his own mind in his debut E.P “Indigo”.
I don’t know why I’ve taken so long to review this album yet it’s one I’ve been bumping on repeat for months now! Perhaps I thought this band is a little too indie for my blog , but it’s good music so why not! Mothxr (pronounced as Mother) is an indie rock band based in Brooklyn, New York. I’ve posted about them before but they released their debut album , Centerfold, in February.
Ok guys I know I’ve been slacking on the reviews, but that’s just because I’ve been super busy, and sick too. But I’ve also been listening to a lot of amazing music that I can’t wait to review so stay put okay ! Here’s another one of my lame playlists with some songs I’m into . Enjoy !! x
First of all, JOE KAY needs to get hold of this guy’s music and play like three of his songs on Soulection as soon as possible. (I’m gonna spam him on twitter if I need to seriously). I feel like some of his music would fit right in there. The world ain’t even ready for M³ . I am so so so appalled by this young artist’s ability to compose music which is so freakin’ classy, and up-to-standard. Perhaps his proficiency at creating and arranging music is aided by the fact that he’s a multi-instrumentalist, combine that with natural talent and a young musician’s zeal and you have a bomb waiting to explode.
