Album of the Week
Notes On A Conditional Form – The 1975
Their fourth studio album, The 1975’s Notes On A Conditional Form is an epic, messy, politically charged juggernaut of technology and 90s rock. It’s an ambitious work that challenges the listener to think critically. Long, thoughtful, exploratory, and at times incredibly moving, Note On A Conditional Form adds another beautifully imperfect album to the alternative leaning pop group with grace.

Song(s) of the Week
“Open Up” – UMI
Her latest in a recent surge of single releases, “Open Up” may just be the best track put out by the R&B songstress yet. Telling the story of a realization that her lover is worth making herself vulnerable to, UMI bears her soul. Bouncy and lyrically resonant, the single show’s UMI continues to evolve and get one step closer to the stardom she’s destined to achieve.
For fans of: SZA, Sabrina Claudio, Omar Apollo
“Free Porn Cheap Drugs” – G-Eazy
“Free Porn Cheap Drugs” is a complete departure from the past work of rapper G-Eazy. Mysterious, haunting, and introspective, the single is a lyrically dark reset for an artist showing the world he’s more than his previous work.
For fans of: Imagine Dragons, Ty Dolla $ign
“Lamb’s Wool” – Foster the People
“Lamb’s Wool” is the best single Foster the People has put out in years. A blend of the accessible tunes on Torches and the electronica of Supermodel, “Lamb’s Wool” is a poignant indie tune. It marks a righteous return to form, using love as a tipping point for exploring the mind.
For fans of: Passion Pit, Two Door Cinema Club, Walk the Moon
