• Top Tunes Thursday: Denzel Curry — 32 Zel / Planet Shrooms

    Clark Lamson · October 8, 2015

    Two weeks ago, while I was researching the newest Little Simz record (review here) I came across a list of “rappers to watch for.” Little Simz was featured for her E.D.G.E EP and AGE 101 series, while a young Miami Rapper, Denzel Curry was featured for his debut album, Nostalgic 64. After inhaling the hallucinogenic trap flavorings of his debut, I was happy to find his new effort (which had not been released at the time of the record) had been out since June! Normally, on TTT I like to bring you my favorite release from the week, but this week, we’re taking some time for an excellent record that I missed. This article is an effort to make sure you don’t make the same mistake. The record, or “double-EP,” is 32 Zel / Planet Shrooms.

  • Album Review: III— iZACILLi

    Encajando en la escena de “Rock En Tu Idioma”, Izcalli significa renacimiento, y es la tierra natal de los hermanos Avina. No se designan exclusivamente a ese género, pero tampoco se distancian de él porque sus similitudes a grupos como Los Jaguares o Julieta Venegas, por quienes han abierto conciertos, los han ayudado cautivar esa audiencia. Representan el nombre de su grupo como testimonio del renacimiento en su música, actitudes y cultura.

  • Top Tunes Thursday: Big Grams — Self Titled

    Clark Lamson · October 1, 2015

    I’d like to see the “to do list” for this record. It must read something like: “1. Make awesome music. 2. See #1.” Yes, it’s simple, but it's simply fun. If Big Grams set out to make music to dance/copulate to, I think they hit the nail on the head. Phantogram released their most recent record last year, and the last time OutKast put out new music, I was a Junior in highschool. (Wow, I’m old.) While there doesn’t appear to be any tour dates in Big Grams’ future, I guess you’ll just have to settle for playing this record on repeat.
