ALBUM REVIEW : COUBO – SAVOUR

Hey peeps, swear I got a problem with myself. I’ve been listening to so much music but I can’t find the time or energy to actually sit down and review it for y’all. But I decided to stop slacking and get my shit together for this particular album. Any of you who listen to my Sound Cloud playlists that I curate every so often have probably seen this guy in a bunch of them. I’ve been hooked to his music all year long. In the current age where literally anyone making music whether in a studio or a bedroom can post their songs online, platforms like Sound Cloud are really where it’s at if you want to discover fresh, experimental and interesting sounds.

ALBUM REVIEW: ZAYN – MIND OF MINE

When Zayn Malik announced his departure from One Direction, millions of hearts broke all around the world, including mine. If you guys haven’t noticed, I’m a bit of a fan girl, always have been.

That caught my attention, because well, IT’S POMO, but when I listened to the song , I  was obviously blown away by the talents that this West- Coast based rapper, singer and producer boasts.

SONG REVIEW: SNAKEHIPS FT TINASHE & CHANCE THE RAPPER – ALL MY FRIENDS

My favorite duo from the UK released a new single a while ago and it’s been on replay since I first heard it. This song is EXACTLY why I’m obsessed with Snakehips. Seriously, their sound is way too unique ,  the way they mix R&B with electronic and play around with the synths is amazing. Still haven’t heard anyone with a sound even close to theirs. This song is incredible because Tinashe’s voice smoothens out the powerful instrumentation , and Chance The Rapper contributes to the fun, catchy vibe of the song. I really just need these fellas to release a full LP already.
