LISTEN: APRIL 2017

THE UNIVERSE
Thursday, April 13, 2017

I’ve been looking forward to April since John Mayer first announced his latest album would be released the 14th.

He might not the coolest artist to be obsessed with considering his pop-iness but this might convince you of how amazing he really is.

As the year has progressed, more and more upcoming releases have made me geek out. As soon as Little Dragon started releasing singles and dropping hints for their tour, I could not get it off my mind. I think you can understand how excited I am by this simple action: I bought the limited edition vinyl for Season High and I don’t even have a record player.

Ultra shrug right there. Next up came JMSN‘s Whatever Makes You Happy, releasing April 28th. Absolutely love him and I got hooked when I first listened to the blue album. I tried to buy the vinyl for it, to keep up this vinyl spree, but I couldn’t find it anywhere. (EDIT: Last night I did a search and found it on Discogs. OH MAN. Can’t wait.)

Finally: Gorillaz… The most unexpected amazing surprise ever…. I feel like so many of *us* grew up listening to the Gorillaz and it was the gateway to a huge variety of genres and I feel #blessed to have started listening to them when I did. My Zune had 300+ listens just for DARE. Serious dedication.

………. Bought the vinyl too. Still haven’t purchased a record player. So far Saturn Barz and Andromeda are my absolute favorites and can’t wait to hear all of Humanz the 28th.

Last thing: Super random surprise, Kendrick is dropping tomorrow. Humble basically humbled everyone and I think we can all agree we love the short wait time.

 

So, to sum that all up: Who’s buying me a record player?
Edit: I just realized I forgot my first true love. INCUBUS! Their album 8 drops April 21st!! Cannot wait.
