Weekly Wants - The Four Picks Fix
NICKI MINAJ
QUEEN
$13.99(sale priced)
On her most rap-oriented release yet, Nicki jettisons all the industry madness, drowns out the noise, and creates rap the way she believes it should sound.To reign over the charts, the critics, and the streets, a hip-hop star with pop ambitions must be everything to everyone while holding on tight to their identity. This balancing act is especially unforgiving for women, and Nicki Minaj has contended with these double standards and sky-high expectations for over a decade. Her biggest chart successes have come with songs like 2014s bawdy Anaconda, and the effervescent Super Bass from her 2010 debut, but there are still incessant calls for some combination of the take-no-prisoners snarl of her breakout verse on Monster and serious art made up of reflection and maturity. But with Queen, Nicki jettisons all the industry madness, drowns out the noise, and creates rap the way she believes it should sound.Due to hip-hops sexist, one-at-a-time cap on women dominating the genre, this is the first time Nicki has ever released an album with another commercially successful woman also climbing raps ranks. And whatever pressurewhether real or spectator-projectedis there, she rises to the occasion with Queen, her most rap-oriented full-length to date. Never lacking for charisma and attitude, her
BLUE OCTOBER
I HOPE YOU'RE HAPPY
$13.99(sale priced)
Blue October is back better than ever with their upcoming release, I Hope Youre Happy. The Texas quartet composed of Matt Noveskey, Ryan Delahoussaye, and Jeremy and Justin Furstenfeld have reached a pivotal point in their career. The new record, set to release August 17th via Up/Down / Brando Records, displays a positive and genuine side of the band. Coming out on the other side with a record produced by Frontman Justin Furstenfeld, Blue October is ready to share with the world that being happy is their main focus for both their listeners and themselves. The 12-track playlist takes off to a haunting beginning as eerie keys transform into a winding sound that sounds like a VCR fast-forwarding; snippets of different elements seep into the winding until blasts of snare drums bring all the elements back in focus. Justins vocals ease in against an enhanced raindrop noise with whisper-like, layered vocals, adding to the creepiness effect. The opening track builds intensity as the chorus comes in powerfully, scratching the surface of personal demons in an honest yet non-confrontational way that sets the tone for the entire album.
COLE SWINDELL
ALL OF IT
$11.99(sale priced)
Countrys favorite ginger is back! That would be Georgias own Cole Swindell, who is dropping his third studio album, All of It (August 17). After a slow, but steady promo campaign, Swindell releases one final pre-release single. Fittingly, that single is the title track, All of It. All of It is a mid-tempo track, that embraces natural country music cues. That includes the banjo. The focus for Mr. Swindell is love, and it wont surprise you to know that ole boy wants all of it. On the first verse, he sings, Still taste your kiss from this morning / Girl, you say theres another one waiting / Hoping its a long one, break out the dawn one / I want every one you got. On the second verse, he wants to you see you in a pair of cut-up jeans, as well as Feel all your teardrops drippin on me / the sad ones, the happy ones / I want every one you got. Can you say #infatuated? As he sings, he sounds beautiful, flaunting his distinct and expressive pipes like a champ.
DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE
THANK YOU FOR TODAY
$11.99(sale priced)
Please dont change / Stay the same Ben Gibbard pleads on Gold Rush, the lead single from Death Cab for Cuties ninth studio album. Evolution was clearly playing on the bands mind in writing Thank You For Today, as longtime touring members were introduced into its creation. You Moved Away describes, with typical Gibbard poignancy, a friend leaving their hometown of Seattle, nostalgia flows heavily through closer 60 & Punk, while the aforementioned single battles with gentrification and over-development. Sonically, Thank You For Today is a treat: Plans can be heard in the classic, emotional Death Cab hue of Your Hurricane and When We Drive, while the frenetic, hypnotic rhythm to Summer Years will please Postal Service fans. 20 years on from their inception, Death Cab may have changed but their brilliance has stayed the same.
