I listen to a lot of new music. Pretty much every anticipated and well reviewed release as well as sentimental favorites and albums with kick ass artwork go through my earholes every week. This leads to listening to a lot of crap sure but I also get to find a lot of stuff I normally wouldn't if I passively let algorithms bring music to me. Luckily for you I listen so you don't have to, what follows is my favorite stuff from the second quarter of 2019 and some tidbits. Here's the playlist:
Albums I added most songs into my rotation from:
Khalid - Free Spirit
Lizzo - Cause I Love You
Amyl and The Sniffers - Self-Titled
Matiel - Satis Factory
Lil Nas X - 7 EP
Freddie Gibbs, Madlib - Bandana
This quarter started off way weaker than the first but the last two weeks were stacked.
I mean this with 100% sincerity Lil Nas X might be the future of music.— Joseph Aguirre (@psylocibin) June 24, 2019
Silversun Pickups kept their 1:1 album to good song ratio.
There were a lot of good full albums this quarter I suggest the aforementioned Bandana, The Raconteurs Help Us Stranger, Tyler the Creator IGOR, Mattiel Satis Factory, Lucas Nelson and the Promise of the Real Turn Off The New Build A Garden.
Tried something with this quarter's playlist, try listening without shuffling.
