Maren Morris’ hero is a classic example of what 90’s country would sound like if it met the 20’s poppy vibe. It’s a great album if you listen to new age country music as she talks about the things she loves and the way they make her feel.
If there’s one thing American Authors will never do, it is producing a below par album and they surely lived up to expectation with this amazing work of art. Their energy and synergy have not been well put together like this EVERRRRR. Claps, sneers, shakes and feet stamping, this is the album.
PUP is a Canadian punk band from Ontario and if there’s anything to take away from here, think of them as a more edgy punk Bon Jovi with full on yelling yellingness all through their songs.
Practically one of my best albums from this year, this album is everything you wish Chris Brown will do. He raps, he sings, and he writes his own music from inspiration drawn from god knows where.
Coming from Conditions and their self titled project, the temper trap reminds us why their music is evergreen with some of the pop/synth sounds found on their second album, The Temper Trap. Thick as thieves is a subtle touch from the rest and stands out for me.
You could search for months for a better compilation this year but you just simply would not find one. Kygo has his production on fleek with every song put out in this project.
