3/30 KUMD Album Review: Heems

Mar 30, 2015

In 2010, Queens-based hip hop group Das Racist popped up on many a radar with the comical, absurdist single “Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell”. Many heard the track and dismissed the group as facetious MCs who lacked in the way of artistry. However, critics have hailed the three projects they released together as highlights of the early 2010s. After their breakup in 2012, one member, Himanshu Suri (AKA Heems) released two solo mixtapes that carried on the soul of the group.

3/16 KUMD Album Review: Jeff Rosenstock

Mar 16, 2015

Jeff Rosenstock’s new album, We Cool? is well… cool.  All the songs are about drinking and crappy girlfriends. It’s kick-ass, total bro music.  It’s everything you want pop-punk to be, and it’s very well done. The album also has a college vibe that is very relatable, and it’s a step in the right direction after his first album.  The album has a consistent theme and is equal amounts of punk, rock, pop, or ballad.  It leaves the audience excited to see what Rosenstock does next.  

3/9 KUMD Album Review: Natalie Prass

Mar 13, 2015

Natalie Prass is a Disney princess. In her self-titled album, from top to bottom, Prass installs a revamped version of a Cinderella or an Ariel that on the surface seems cute, confused, and complicated.  She then complements this with a bluesy and ballsy elegance- not to be mistaken for the immaturity of a Disney princess.
