I'm going to start from home with this one.
I’ve never really been a fan of Burna. Not because I don’t think he’s good enough but because for the clearly abundant talent he’s got, he seems to be taking a hands off approach to his career and that is only a recipe for disaster in this Nigerian industry. Anyway, he recently released an EP which I hope he follows up with an album much later. Redemption is what he titles it and my best track from it? Pree Me
There’s no disputing the King of modern day folk rock, Michael David Rosenberg of Passenger as you know him stepped into the limelight after a song (Let He Go) from his 2012 album All The Little Lights became one of the most played songs on the radio. He has since then released 3 studio albums with the most recent of them coming late in September and has since then been the most played album in my library.
Bastille are a British Indie pop band led by Dan Smith. They started their journey in 2010 but their big break came in 2013 after their hit song Pompeii led the way for what would later become a career changing album in Bad Blood. Since then, the band toured for a while before giving us Wild World early in September.
I haven’t known this guy for that long but I made my discovery after I heard a catchy tune from Chance The Rapper’s latest EP Coloring book. The song titled Summer Friends made me look into that melody only to see Francis was the one behind the last few seconds of the song which for me was one of the highlights of the album.
Only recently, he released his first studio album and he named it after himself Francis Farewell Starlite.
You’re excited too yes? Well we had to wait sooooo long for Justin to release something… Anything even when we’re sure as hell we wouldn’t hear 90% of what he says. Justin Vernon responded with 22, A Million, an album with a barely pronounceable track list and awesome vibes throughout.
