Left-Field Rap

Angry, egomaniacal, and completely revolutionary, Kanye's dark sixth set has aged very well, ahead of its time upon release but soon eclipsed by his public antics and a messy follow-up. Continuing his descent into vulgarity, excess, and opulence, Yeezus is also a production highlight in West's catalog, presciently employing industrial, electronic, and gospel for an experience that influenced a generation of young rappers with its hybrid thrills and those damn croissants.

Indie Pop

The seventh studio long-player from the mercurial Canadian pop/country crooner and the follow-up to 2016's excellent Mosey, Modern Pressure is a heady and earworm-heavy collection of knotty indie power pop dressed up in countrypolitan clothing.
