Despite their immense talents, Aesop Rock and Rob Sonic orchestrate a relatively unrewarding esoteric lyricism slugfest on their sophomore album as Hail Mary Mallon.
Death Grips drop a new single to tease toward the second half of their yet-to-be-completed double album, The Powers That B.
Foo Fighter’s match this album’s ambitious concept with some generally uninteresting songs.
The latest Wu-Tang record defies expectations, featuring even weirder experiments and hooks than the polarizing 8 Diagrams. Still, it should please at least some hardcore fans.
Ferg Forever is one of the most off-the-wall mixtapes I’ve heard this year.
Pink Floyd has a new album. Whaaaaaaaaaaa?
Wildbirds & Peacedrums return with one of their catchiest efforts yet.
