Arc­tic Mon­keys

Front­man Alex Turner led his band into wise au­di­tory pas­tures with their sixth al­bum. Look­ing be­yond fes­ti­val-fill­ing tunes, Turner’s ca­sual pi­ano scrib­bles were fleshed out by guitarist Jamie Cook that al­lowed the band to de­liver their most ma­ture and in­trigu­ing of­fer­ing to date. Dig deep into the well-writ­ten lyrics on these slow-burn­ers—you’ll dis­cover the band’s am­a­teur peers have noth­ing

to threaten their ac­claimed sta­tus.

KTSE Teyana Tay­lor Signed to Kanye West’s GOOD Mu­sic

la­bel and recorded at his ranch in Jack­son Hole, Wyoming, Tay­lor’s Yeezypro­duced al­bum didn’t al­low her boss to over­shadow her lime­light. A sam­ple­heavy R&B gem that’s des­tined to be a clas­sic, I’m dis­mayed on the nom­i­na­tion snub by the Grammy com­mit­tee. ‘3Way’ and ‘Gonna Love Me’ serve as ex­cel­lent in­tro­duc­tions to the short eight-track LP,

which will leave you want­ing more.

A Brief In­quiry into On­line


The 1975

The Manch­ester pop-rock band churns out a se­ries of per­sonal songs that touches on con­tem­po­rary cul­ture and dis­course, which res­onates with mil­len­ni­als (there’s a poem nar­rated by Siri on ‘The Man Who Mar­ried A Ro­bot/ Love Theme’). A com­ing-of-age al­bum by The 1975 lads, gen­res are pre­sented

like an ex­cit­ing roller­coaster of emo­tions—thrilling but never off-track.
