Young Thug & Carnage: Young Martha | Album Review

Young Thug is in his element on Young Martha. His co-headliner, Carnage, does a good job of supplying Thug the brash and gothic beats he thrives on. If you’re a fan of Young Thug, you already know what this is and you’ll like it anyway.


Daniel Caesar: Freudian | Album Review

Freudian, the full-length debut from Toronto’s Daniel Caesar, has a certain old-school sensibility. While it falls prey to some of the trappings that often accompany first efforts – a lack of risk-taking, a missing narrative – it succeeds off the strength of its creator’s vocal magnetism.


Noname: Telefone | Album Review
