Album Daily
#92 - The Week of August 16th - August 20th

Another Monday morning, another week without Donda. Ye's got us in the palm of his hand and he knows it. Word on the street is he sold $7 Million worth of merch after his two release shows. The grind truly does never stop for this man. 

So we'll wait and wait and wait ... and maybe one day, the mythical album will be bestowed upon us. Until then, we've got quite the variety of albums for you to check out this week. We've got classic indie-sounds and some electronic jazz like you've never heard before.

So check out this week's reccs and don't forget to turn the speakers up!

Genre: Folk
Release Date: June 25th, 2021
Top Tracks: Hot & Heavy, Thumbs, Going Going Gone    
Similar Artists: Phoebe Bridgers, Julien Baker, Pinegrove

Home Video is the striking third Album from indie-folk artist Lucy Dacus. In this project, she uses melancholic melodies and piercing lyrics to weave together an autobiographical story of growth. Each song serves as a glimpse into her childhood. Dacus relives vivid and often heart-wrenching memories of her complicated upbringing growing up queer in a predominantly Catholic community. Her overall performance is poised, thoroughly calm, and when need be, powerful. 

Bonus Content: Along with the success of her solo career, Dacus is also a member of Boygenius, the musical trio of Phoebe Bridgers and Julien Baker (both of whom we’ve featured in the past!). The three even trade harmonies on each other’s solo albums. Read more about their stack-struck friendship here! 

Nine

Sault

Genre:  Blues
Release Date: June 25th, 2021
Top Tracks: 9, Bitter Streets, Light's In Your Hands
Similar Artists:  Arlo Parks, Oscar Jerome, Lianne La Havas

Allure (the quality of being powerfully and mysteriously attractive or fascinating) is the only word to describe this album. Did you know that the nursery rhyme “London Bridge Is Falling Down” is secretly about the spirits of the dead? (Pitchfork) Well, UK group Sault decided to interweave childhood rhymes, melodies, and undertones to their latest album NINE. Spoooooky. This is one of those albums you need to hear for yourself to really comprehend what’s going on. There’s not much like it.

To add to the allure of Sault’s new album, NINE is ONLY AVAILABLE TO STREAM OR PURCHASE FOR 99 DAYS. If you’re bad at mental math like I am, that means you only have until October 2nd to listen to this album. What are you waiting for?

True Colors

Elijah Kyle

Genre: Hip-Hop
Release Date: May 7th, 2021
Top Tracks: Lone Wolf Intro, Hideaway, Soul Searching 2    
Similar Artists: Logic, Fort Minor, G-Eazy

True Colors has got Logic-esque verses, a touch of richness on the deeper side, and can’t help me feel reminded of Fort Minor. Remember Fort Minor? The hip hop side project of Mike Shinoda, who is better known as the rhythm guitarist, keyboardist, producer, and rapper of the American rock band Linkin Park? There’s even a touch of electronic production on songs like Soul Searching 2. If one thing is certain about this album, it’s that it truly shows off Elijah Kyle’s range. Dude’s got Trae Young 3-pointer-from-the-logo range.

We typically don’t do song-by-song breakdowns here at Album Daily, so if you’d like a take on each of the songs on True Colors check out this in-depth review on Chaospin.

P.S. Shout out to Elijah Kyle himself for engaging with us on Twitter. Love the album!

Day of the Dead

Various Artists

Genre: Rock
Release Date: May 20th, 2016
Top Tracks: Ship of Fools, Brown-Eyed Woman, Friend of the Devil    
Similar Artists: Grateful Dead (Duh)

Summer is for The Dead, baby! Touch of Grey and chuggin' light beers, tie-dye and sweaty Dead Heads go together like two peas in a pod. If you're a fan of rock music but you've found it difficult to put in the required 30 hours to listen to the entire Dead Discography necessary to attend a show, this album might be a great place to start! Day of the Dead is a cover album where some pretty notable artists cover classic Dead tunes. All in one place. Everyone from The War on Drugs, to Bela Fleck, Real Estate to The Flaming Lips. Chance is your favorite band is covering a Dead tune on this album, so check it out! Current Dead member Bob Wier even appears on several tracks himself. It's a great place to start if your crazy Uncle Jimbo is dragging you to his 237th Dead show with him next week. 

Day of the Dead is one of 25 compilation albums released by the Red Hot Organization. Red Hot Organization is an international charity devoted to raising funds and awareness for HIV and AIDS. You can find out more about the organization right here. 

Rainbow Brain

GRiZ

Genre: Electronic
Release Date:  July 23rd, 2021
Top Tracks: Gold, Daily Routine, Vibe Check    
Similar Artists:  Big Gigantic, Zeds Dead, Pretty Lights

Wubz & sax. Just wanted to start off with those words so you all know what you’re getting into. This album is definitely out of the realm of what we usually feature on AD, but GRiZ has been on the fast-track from supporting act to headlining festivals in just the past 3 years so he’s more than deserving of a feature. If you’re not ready to dive in head-deep to the heavy dubstep and bass lines Rainbow Brain drops on the songs like Burn Up The Floor or Tie-Die Sky, you should steer clear and opt-in to GRiZ’s collab with Cherub (Gold) or vibe-out with the ending of the album where you’ll catch Another World and The Echo Tree.

If you’re ready for an EXPERIENCE, you can enjoy this 55-minute album in move form. We give you: Rainbow Brain The Movie.
