Neu auf Rotation

Sommer-Vibes und Festival-Pläne vom Berliner Duo Gurr, hypnotische Synthie-Klänge von Inner Tongue aus Wien und neuer Rock von Courtney Barnett.

 

Courtney Barnett - Charity [Milk! Records]

Nach drei Jahren Wartezeit hat die Australische Singer/Songwriterin Courtney Barnett am 18. Mai ihr neues Album Tell Me How You Really Feel veröffentlicht. Der Song „Charity“ überzeugt mit dem typischen Barnett-Sound, den ihre Fans schon von ihrem ersten Album kennen: schrammelige Gitarren und ein fröhlicher Sound gemischt mit weniger fröhlichen Texten. In dem Lied singt sie über Probleme und verschiedene Mechanismen, um mit ihnen zurechtzukommen.

Gurr – Hot Summer [Gurr Records]

Das Duo Gurr, das 2012 in Berlin gegründet wurde, veröffentlicht pünktlich zum Sommeranfang mit „Hot Summer“ eine eingängige Single, die die Vorfreude auf die heißen Tage wachsen lässt. Der Musikstil der zwei jungen Frauen ist eine perfekt abgestimmte Mischung aus Indie-Rock, Garage und Punk – sie selbst bezeichnen ihn als „First Wave Gurrcore“. Wer sich im Sommer gerne auf Festivals herumtreibt, kann Gurr zwischen Mai und September auf über zehn Festivals zu hören bekommen, unter anderem auch beim Melt Festival, bei Rock im Park in Nürnberg oder beim Lollapalooza in Berlin.

Inner Tongue – Next Life [Mount Silver Records]

Nachdem er 2016 eine schwere Stimmbandkrankheit überwinden konnte, startet der Wiener Solokünstler Inner Tounge jetzt wieder mit neuer Musik durch. Der Song „Next Life“ ist ein Zusammenspiel aus ruhigen Beats, einer weichen Stimme und sphärischen Synthesiser Sounds, die sehr gut ins Ohr gehen. Es geht in dem Song darum, dass wir uns Dinge vornehmen, diese dann aber doch ins „nächste Leben“ schieben. Am 11. Juni wird Inner Tongue sein neues Album zunächst in Wien, am 13. Juni dann in Berlin bei einer Release-Show vorstellen.

Platte des Monats

Auf den Ehrenplätzen der Rubrik „Wörter, die es nur im Deutschen gibt“ sitzt seit jeher die feucht-fröhliche „Schnapsidee“. Sie beschreibt treffend wie kein anderes Wort das, was entsteht, wenn drei befreundete Musiker*innen auf einer Geburtstagsparty einen über den Durst trinken und dann beschließen eine Band zu gründen. Aus einer solchen Schnapsidee wurde auch das Bandprojekt Phantastic Ferniture um Sängerin Julia Jacklin, das auf seinem gleichnamigen Debüt den Emotionsreichtum der Adoleszenz in leichtfüßig schwankender und wunderbar wärmender Gitarrenmusik feiert.

Die afk Familie

Miami, FL rapper Denzel Curry returns for his third full-length project entitled TA1300 (a.k.a. Taboo). His previous two albums Imperial and 32 Zel were both held in high regard, separating himself from the other SoundCloud rappers that he rose to stardom with. His explosive production and delivery were the main focus of his previous projects, and while TA1300 still contains these elements, this is his first album that is one cohesive project. The album has three separate parts, going from Light to Grey, then ending with Dark. Curry explains that he created the album as his creative emotions changed from lighter and happier sounds, to darker and melancholy.

Act 1: Light

Part 1, Light, touches upon serious topics as he raps to whomever the subject of the song is. "TABOO" covers sexual abuse, drug abuse, institutionalized violence, and societal taboos over genre-bending jazzy production. Part 1 is a lot more sing-songy than the Denzel Curry that we are used to, showing his versatility and artistic-depth by using his unique flow and lyricism over production that he usually strays away from.

The last song on Part 1, "SUMO", is a smooth transition from Light to Grey. The production on "SUMO" contains the explosiveness that you can find on his 2015 single, Ultimate, that brought Denzel’s name to light. "SUMO" contains typical SoundCloud rap themes of wealth and his superiority to other rappers, which differs from the other themes you find on Part 1 which slightly demeans the three-section theme of the album.

Act 2: Grey

The overall sound of Part 2 is similar to his previous albums that cemented Denzel’s one-of-a-kind style of boombastic production along with quick and choppy flows. Track 1 of Part 2, "SUPER SAIYAN SUPERMAN", reminds the listener of Curry’s origin as a Florida SoundCloud rapper. The flow and progression of the song is similar to tracks you would hear by other Floridian artists Smokepurpp, Lil Pump, or the late XXXTentacion. Even though Part 2 has similarities to his previous work, the tracks on TA1300 show Curry’s artistic evolution with a smoother delivery and catchier hooks.

Part 2 ends with "CLOUT COBAIN", the single-release of the album. This track focuses on the toxic environment modern-day rappers find themselves in. Curry raps about the lengths artist will go to gain clout and attention, whether it be through drugs or violence. Curry breaks the light to dark transition again in Part 2 with "SIRENS" ft. rapper J.I.D, as the overall sound of the song doesn’t exactly fit with the tracks around it. Somewhat of a nitpicky detail, but with an album that has very few shortcomings I feel it should be mentioned.

Act 3: Dark

However Part 3, Dark, is no disappointment in what I would imagine a Denzel Curry “dark” album to sound like. The production throughout the last four tracks are all bassy, cacophonic beats produced by FNZ and renouned SoundCloud producer, RonnyJ. The lyrics within Part 3 really put all of the album in perspective. Curry raps about the phoniness of the artists within his genre, but is confident in his role as a rapper that has already made a lane for himself. He embodies one of his “artistic aliases” in Part 3, referring to himself as “Zel.” Zel is Curry’s persona that breaks away from his rather serious self in Part 1 and 2. Zel is the explosive and cocky rapper that got Curry to where he is today, and his hubris shows when he flows as “Zel.”

All in all, TA1300 is an impressive project from start to finish that puts Denzel Curry’s name into the conversation of “Who is the best rapper alive?” Before this album, Curry was held in high regard solely due to his fast, explosive flows. Now, with his visions coming to life, everyone knows what Curry is capable of in terms of making a point with his music. Denzel Curry has blazed a trail for the youngest generation of rappers, and his artistic depth isn’t even done expanding yet.

I'm gonna live by my confidence, I'm gonna die by my arrogance
