Brief Encounters: New Albums 8-5-22 – 8-11-22 Reviewed

Sing Me a Lullaby, My Sweet Temptation – $uicideboy$ – underground rap and rock with jazz signs in the tracking – B

Art Moore – Art Moore – dream pop trio of fuzzed brain sounding ambients- B-

THE WORLD EP.1 : MOVEMENT – Ateez – K-Pop with a wild streak of experimentation that dissolves before it can effect commerciality – C+

BREAK MY SOUL – Remixes – Beyonce – One killer, the one with Madonna – B+

Hellfire – Black Midi – expand their wings on some strange art rock experimental prog sounds, try “Dangerous Liaison” – B

Bodboy – Bobby Shmurda – whatever is left of Brooklyn drill is somewhere on Shmurda’s excellent sophomore effort, a straightforward, adult violence album – B+

Bullet For My Valentine – Bullet For My Valentine – screamo metal with a side of prog, adds five songs to the original – B

Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 2 – Calvin Harris – what happens when a man whose main purpose in life is to manufacture and the hits stop coming? Harris throws everything at us but he has no :One Kiss” left – C-

Jackpot Juicer – Dance Gavin Dance – is a first rate dance meets metal fusion with mindbenders like “Ember” – B

she / her / black bitch – Doechii – pretty good woman rap from Tampa, via Top Dawg so expect a coupla years before we can get an album, hang around for “Bitches Be” – B

Curtain Call 2 – Eminem – hits and misses from the disappointing second half of his career – B+

MANIFESTO : DAY 1 – ENHYPEN – These K-Pop bands run variations on dance all day longs, these guys a little more electronic bend sinister but nothing special – C+

Could We Be More – Kokoroko – soft jazz instrumentals meet neo r&b vibes – B

MATRIARCHY NOW – Pussy Riot – well, would you go to a Russian prison for your music? Even if the music is this disappointing electro-pop mixtape – C+

Totem – Soulfly – the problem with horror is it can’t get close to reality in 2022, but if anybody can these Brazilian hardcore thrash monsters – B

Sleepy Soldier – Tanna Leone – signed to Kendrick Lamar’s pglang imprint, Tanna was excellent opening for Lamar last week at Barclays, and this low key melody plus rap is what he gave us to make it so excellent – B+

The Invisible Light: Spells – T- Bone Burnett – percussionist Jay Bellerose and multi-instrumentalist Keefus Ciancia join T-Bone Burnett on part two of his avant-garde and dreary album of bad news – C-

In The Wild – The Interrupters – the current take on ska meets pop punk, pretty straight forward and pleasant – B

Rise Jamaica: Jamaican Independence Special – “Marking the 60th anniversary of Jamaica’s independence in August 2022, this celebratory album collection showcases an array of major hits and previously unissued tracks all of which were recorded in the year that the island became a sovereign nation: 1962…” it sounds excellent, not political but the mood of Caribbean reggae meets ska – B+

Something Borrowed, Something New: A Tribute to John Anderson – Various Artists – some big country and Americana names come out for the 80s country scene maker, starting with John Prine and including Eric Church, Sturgill Simpson, Del McCoury, and Jamey Johnson to honor John Anderson – A-
