St. Vincent announced her new album today and, while I am completely beside myself with excitement about the prospect of new material from Annie Clark, I must admit her promotional image is making February feel so much farther away.
I was drawn to the vibrancy of her first three albums and her lyrical creativity, but her last solo release was the “Krokodil” 7”, which was unrelentingly heavy by comparison. I’ve been essentially wondering if that will carry into her next album for the last year and a half, and this photograph confirms a cool aversion to the floating potpourri of sounds she’s recorded in the past.
I have a feeling that dark crystal, day-goth Annie is gonna throw some serious bows.
We’re over the halfway point, y’all. To celebrate, we’ve added a limited amount of the Unrecorded Compilation for $7 (over 50% off!).
The compilation includes tracks donated by the following artists, some of which are rare or unreleased:
I’ve been part of the Listen Before You Buy team since 2011 and we’re about to shift into a new era, one with an entirely new site layout, exciting new features, and a more refined outlet for music-related news, album reviews, and more.
We have amazing donation perks, like Unrecorded t-shirts, tote bags, a carefully curated compilation with tracks exclusive to our campaign. You can also receive a custom playlist based on your favorite artists.
Is there any rapper more polarizing to their own fanbase than Eminem? After overtaking underground cyphers in the gritty heart of Detroit, breaking down racial boundaries in the process, and attracting the attention of Compton Overlord, Dr. Dre, only to grandfather in the G-Unit era , Em has kind of rested on his laurels. No doubt he’s is an accomplished artist, producer, and elder statesman of the rap game, but is a sequel to arguably his greatest album really the answer here?
The way I see it, Eminem has two options.
