BROCKHAMPTON – IRIDESCENCE
Best described as a Texan hip-hop collective, this is not what you initially think – or perhaps fear. This band’s debut album this year opened at #1 in the US. That’s cool, but what if we told you that on their fourth album they rap about coming out and how “every time she took her bra off my dick would get soft” (Weight). Kevin Abstract is the main man for a band currently numbering 14 members claiming this album was inspired by indie gods Radiohead and their critically beloved Kid A album. If anything, Iridescence gives us hope that the sound of young America is inclusive, diverse and all that the struggles that went on before them, which Trump continues dumbing down, were worth it.
