Hello Memory

Artist: 
Little Daylight
Label: 
Capitol Records

Little Daylight's debut album Hello Memory is titled appropriately because it beckons back to music you may have heard in the past while putting an entirely new spin on it. It is similar to the way your memories get distorted and disjointed over time. You will feel like you have heard Little Daylight before as it is very much in the vain of much of the indie alt music that gets put out today. the vocalist has a pleasing and happy voice that makes each song a pleasure to hear. The closest comparison I can think of is a happier Metric.

I love love love love 80s pop and this brings it back HARD. I fell in love with this album the second I heard the vocals. It's straight up Depeche Mode/Pet Shop Boys alley. I almost wish I was an 80s diva or drag queen that rocks tight leather pants, no shirt, and maybe an ascot. Definitely a fancy mustache, too. Can we all just go to Ibiza and love life and music altogether?

Simple Science EP

Artist: 
Zero 7
Label: 
Make Records

So I used to listen to Zero 7 when I was younger...I can't remember crap about them though, so I'm just going to go about this review like it's the first time I've ever heard them. Let's be honest, my memory is crap and it practically is the first time I've listened to them.

while (1<2)

Artist: 
deadmau5
Label: 
Astralwerks

Ok ok, this is the album we have all been patiently waiting for deadmau5 to drop. So do yourself the favor and clear out about 2 hours to do mundane tasks (like cleaning or doing homework) while listening to this album. There's 2 discs, and each disc has something awesome to offer, so listen to each disc thorougly :) Both discs have a really nice sprinkling of tracks with deadmau5 classic, classical touch on it. Expect a lot of piano intros, soft guitars, and slow mellow build-ups to a more electro-based drop. Some of these songs will really give you the chills and mellow you out.

I'm sitting here writing this review and for my recommended tracks I already have tracks 1-5 in a row...So that should tell you how dope this album is. I highly recommended freeing up your day and just sitting down and listening to this. Read a book to it. Get some homework done. Just sit down and enjoy it; I implore you to. This is a kind of sound that was not expected out of Porter Robinson. He is an incredibly talented artist who experimented the heck out of this album and nailed it. All I can say is that it is just purely majestic.

(Self released)

Very chill-out album, with awesome lyrics and beautiful synths. Little rock, definitely pop-electro, and kinda dark too. Overall really nice to listen to.

The 4 tracks are a little bit all similar. There are some influences from Daft Punk, Kavinsky and other dark, pop-electro artists.

All the songs are good with the emphasis on 1 and 2.

Stay the Night (Single)

Artist: 
Zedd
Label: 
Interscope Records

The minute the music starts playing, you can tell it's Zedd. This single really helped to add even more to his Clarity album (since it was added for the Deluxe Version), and the use of Hayley Williams' vocals really adds to the track. Zedd never fails to make music that makes his audience get up and dance. Stay the Night is definitely a song you'll want to hear if you're into EDM and like to jam out.
