Meek Mill - Wanna Know ( Drake diss )

Meek finally responds 

     It took Meek forever to answer and judging by the response it would have been better if he didn't. It's important to note that Meek is fighting with a disadvantage, Drake fan base is backing him up and destroying Meek online.

     But when you try to objectively look at this track it's very disappointing. First all the remixed parts that are in this ( Undertaker Theme , Quentin Miller - Know Yourself , P-Diddy ) make it feel like an amateur mix tape ; Meanwhile Drake work had studio quality.
     Meek gets distracted at some points and goes after another man Safaree who dropped Life Line, which is just jumping the whole bandwagon in an week attempt to regain some of his long lost fame.. Safaree ain't worth Meek's attention when Drake is trying to bury his career and judging by the way this is going he just might.  
     The only spot where Meek is beating drake at the moment is in the number of hard hitting personal shots and inside info.
     Either way it's good meek ain't staying silent 'cus the real winner here are rap fans.

Drake vs Meek goes on

Milo - Things that happen at day / Things that happen at night

Obscure lyrics and mellow tunes

           Rapper, Rory Ferreira a.k.a. Milo has managed to make something new and fresh, again with the double ep album "Things that happen at day / Things that happen at night". This time he's bringing his regular philosophy in to the game with smoother beats and even more atmospheric backround. The amount of references, still large in quantity has been toned down compered to the last albums.
            Saying that his lyrics are originating from obscure thoughts is not really fair while his thought are so common that it is a bit too easy to identify with them. What is so obscure about them is that they are expressed. Most people are even to ashamed to express them and others can not compose them well enough to make it purely understandable to other people.

The Smashing Pumpkins - Oceania

This Time With A Punch

'Oceania' - Sydney, Sydney Entertainment Centre

             Formed in 1988 by frontman Billy Corgan and the rythm guitar James Iha, The Smashing Pumpkins is often reffered to as one of the bands which made the 90's. We often forget that they are still here and here to remind us, with a big slap is Oceania. They have not ever stopped putting music and since the turn of the century they have realesed five albums. Lacking in energy, they did not satisfy the people and thus must of the previous has been bought without being listen to, as Corgan said.

The Black Swans - Change

Psychedelic Folk Unlike Ever Before

          Change back from 2007 is the second studio album of the indie rock band The Black Swans, of the five released. It was my introduction to theirs music and a violent one indeed. This album is something along the lines of Leonard Cohen on acid. The album ranges from alternative rock to experimental folk.
          It is the last album released before the death of Noel Sayre (violin, viola), one of the two core members, along with Jerry DeCicca (vocals, acoustic guitar).

"Here is my new face, wear it for you...."

Only On The Surface Is It Simple

          DeCiccia does not sing, he instead whispers and screams to convey the emotions of fear, grief and hope. He does not feel as the only vocal since the violin sounds as cracking voice which together with DeCiccia's vocals dance along the album.

The Mountain Goats - Transcendental Youth

Triumphant Sounds On Negative Subjects 

           The Mountain Goats have released their 14th album this year, Transcendental Youth. The sole core member John Darnielle has focused on the introverts & unstable ones in this album. The lyrics of the songs are gloomy and would be depressive if they weren't combined with such upbeat and catchy tunes.
           The lyrics on first glance are simple but the tenacity with which John Darnielle delivers them is what makes them resonate and bounce in your head.

"The loneliest people in the whole white world are the people you aren't going to meet again."

           Transcendental Youth promotes living in reality no matter how unsatisfied we are with it and not scanning from it. With strong and triumphant sound it tells us to be us and be happy with it . The way to do so is by facing it and that is what this album forces you too do.
