Even though I’m very much not a fan of Kanye West, I heard the production on his new album was really good and so I’m giving it a run through tonight while I’m up working. I’m sure I won’t be able to bear listening to the entire thing straight through but it’s got a couple catchy tunes on it at least. He works with some Reggae artists and Daft Punk too.
‘Black Skinhead’ and ‘Blood on the Leaves’ are probably my favorite tracks. ‘I’m in it’ and ‘I am a God’ both have those Reggae elements, and so those aren’t terrible either if you’re into that type of thang. Being Martin Luther King day, however – Black Skinhead is probably the most appropriate choice so we’ll go with that for today’s pick… SEO be damned lol. Seriously though, this has got a super fun melody and is worth a listen for sure. By far my favorite out of the whole ‘Yeezus’ album.
The other albums I’ll be checking out on this most melodious Monday night:
- The Knife – Shaking the Habitual
- The Smashing Pumpkins – Oceania
- Julia Holter – Ekstasis
As always – If you’d be interested in having any of these albums reviewed next week just let me know in the comments!!
