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.
