Review of 'Feet of Clay' by Earl Sweatshirt

What’s up with the creepy artwork? Has Earl embraced black metal? Not quite – although his latest sound is about as inaccessible as black metal.

Review of 'Part 1' and 'Part 2' of 'Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost' by Foals

I don’t have the time or patience for double albums. Foals’ decision to split their latest lengthy project into two releases – Part 1 in March and Part 2 in October – was a wise idea (they clearly had me in mind). I decided to wait until both parts were out so that I could review the complete package.

BEST AND WORST NEW TRACKS OF THE WEEK 22/11/2019: Blood Incantation, Coldplay, U2 and more...

This week features touching piano ballads and psychedelic death metal. I’ll let you figure out which one of those is the new Coldplay track and which one is the new Blood Incantation track.

BEST AND WORST NEW TRACKS OF THE WEEK 15/11/2019: Billie Eilish, Frank Ocean, Earl Sweatshirt and more...

Odd Future alumni Frank Ocean and Earl Sweatshirt continue to sound futuristicly odd. But have they gone too far this time? Also new tracks from Billie Eilish and …And You Will Know Us From The Trail Of The Dead.

Review of ‘JESUS IS KING’ by Kanye West

I miss the old Kanye. Straight from the go Kanye. The less happy-clappy, more lyrical rappy Kanye. The Kanye that didn’t have a hard-on for Trump. The Kanye that didn’t try to sell me his pumps.

Review of 'Is He Real?' by IDK

Philosophers, scientists and theorists have long debated the question: Is God real? Now, Maryland rapper IDK has decided to weigh in with his view on the matter.

Review of 'All My Heroes Are Cornballs' by JPEGMAFIA

Have I got two tabs of music playing? Has my computer crashed? No, it’s just the new JPEGMAFIA album playing.

Friday 4 October 2019

BEST AND WORST NEW TRACKS OF THE WEEK 04/10/2019: The Hu, Clipping, Pitbull and more…

There’s all manner of crazy shit going on this week. There’s Mongolian rock with throat singing. There’s Pitbull rapping over a house remix of ‘Black Betty’. It's absolute mayhem.

BEST NEW TRACKS OF THE WEEK 23/08/2019: The 1975, Doja Cat, Miley Cyrus and more...

Miley Cyrus and The 1975 have both released new songs. And neither of them are terrible. In fact, they’re both quite good. HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE???

By the way, there are no ‘worst’ tracks this week.

Review of 'Father of Asahd' by DJ Khaled

The new DJ Khaled album is like listening to a NOW CD, but without any of the hits.

Thursday 27 June 2019

BEST AND WORST NEW TRACKS OF THE WEEK 28/06/2019: Blink-182, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, FEVRMOON and more…

Hot new tunes in time for the heatwave. Is it really going to reach 45 degrees next week? I'm getting sunburn just thinking about it...

Friday 24 May 2019

BEST AND WORST NEW TRACKS OF THE WEEK 24/05/2019: Lil Nas X, Denzel Curry, Tyler, the Creator and more…

I missed a week, so this technically the best and worst tracks of the fortnight. Read more for my opinion on the new Lil Nas X/Billie Ray Cyrus collaboration amongst other tracks…

Review of 'Hyperion' by Gesaffelstein

This album really is dark...

Aleph was action-packed. Hyperion is oddly uneventful.

Friday 12 April 2019

BEST AND WORST NEW TRACKS OF THE WEEK 12/04/2019: Men I Trust, Omar Addis, Schoolboy Q and more...

This week I decided to travel the cosmos (if you look closely enough at that picture of the black hole released this week, you can just about see me in my spaceship), and having scoured every galaxy I can confirm that Music Related Junk is still the greatest music blog in the universe. Don’t believe me? Then you're clearly an idiot.

Review of 'Harverd Dropout' by Lil Pump

Despite evidently not being able to spell (or rap for that matter), Lil Pump is a self-made millionaire at 18 - and he’s decided to spend his new album telling everyone that school is for losers.
