[QUICKIE] Blink-182 – NEIGHBORHOODS

♫ Blink-182 – Up All Night

As an old school fan I want to love it but they just aren’t the same. Not awful but far from their best. Sth comforting about it though.5/10

[QUICKIE] Mayer Hawthorne – HOW DO YOU DO

♫ Mayer Hawthorne – Can’t Stop (ft. Snoop Dogg)

Ok album. Easy listening but the debut’s magic charm is missing somehow. But sweet video for “The Walk” and I like Snoop’s appearance. 5/10

[QUICKIE] Mariachi el Bronx – MARIACHI EL BRONX II

♫ Mariachi el Bronx – 48 Roses

No super jams like on debut LP but generally solid and fun vibes from my fave hardcore-band-goes-strict-mariachi. + reminds me of home. 5/10

[QUICKIE] Theophilus London – TIMEZ ARE WEIRD THESE DAYS

Solid but so was Lovers Holiday EP which is recycled here making LP feel stale. Why not just another EP? Tracks 2 & 11 are the new gems.6/10

[QUICKIE] Baby Monster – BABY MONSTER

♫ Baby Monster – Russian Lights

1 of the best songs of the year (“Mr Success”) + a handful of gems make for a strong, sexy, & soothing debut from an under-loved duo. 7/10

[QUICKIE] Jay-Z & Kanye West – WATCH THE THRONE

i pledge allegiance, uh, to my grandma, for that banana pudding, our piece of americana 

The boring “Otis” song/video made hopes low but jams like “Ni**as in Paris” & super ballad “Made in America” bring heat. I’m down. 6/10
