Going though it now and the rapping is top notch (though it's Nas so that's a given) and the production is incredible imo.Fair play to him putting something like this out 30 years in. Seems like his last three albums he's been in the best form of his career.
QuoteHailing from the seaside communities surrounding Enoshima, a small island located 50 km southwest of Tokyo, maya ongaku is a ragtag collective of local musicians whose brand of earthy psychedelia transcends widely beyond the roots of their inner souls. The name derives not from any kind of ancient civilization, but rather a neologism defined as the imagined view outside one's field of vision. The band—currently a trio of Tsutomu Sonoda, Ryota Takano, and Shoei Ikeda—finds sanctuary at the Ace General Store, a beachy vintage shop and salon-like space just hidden from sight from the bustling, touristy riverside Subana Street. Between discussions on music and art, curating the vinyl section and manning the register, and chatting up with locals young and old, the members find time to jam and record their spontaneous ideas in the studio tucked away in the back. It's in this unlikely setting where maya ongaku finds its origins, the culmination of what Sonoda describes as 自然発生 (shizen hassei), meaning spontaneous generation, or the supposed production of living organisms from nonliving matter.
QuoteAminé and Kaytranada have revealed the tracklist and new release date for their debut Kaytraminé album. The self-titled album is out May 19 and includes guest spots from Big Sean, Amaarae, Snoop Dogg, and Freddie Gibbs, as well as Pharrell Williams, who's on the project's lead single, "4eva."
Quote from: Lexi Darling on May 29, 2023, 10:30 AMI've been really digging the new 100 Gecs album. It's modern sounding bonkers electro-rock but it also has a lot of throwbacks to the nu-metal and emo music I grew up with. It's in a weirdly perfect nexus of 2000 Lexi and 2023 Lexi and I love that. One of the band members is a trans woman, and we love to see the trans homies succeed. They came to my city recently and I'm gutted that I missed them. Being off social media has its downsides sometimes.
