Gummo – 6x9ine – Loud and vicious scream rap, the track haunts and the gangsta projects strongly – B

Girl Who cried Wolf – Ashe – Alt pop is where it’s at in 2017, this is timely putdown of predators which surges ever forward – B

Dubo Drop – A-Trak, Baauer – Baauer is the “Harlem Shake” auteur, though this doesn’t step out of A-Trak’s Houseish wheelhouse – B-

I Know You Care – Ella Vos – More alt pop, this one is more pop than alt – C+

Walk On Water (featuring Beyonce) – Eminem – Eminem is a whiny little bitch who deserves a hard slap for this crap, Bey has another dog on her hand with a crap chorus – MUST TO AVOID – D

I’m With Her – See You Around – AKA Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz and Aoife O’Donovan, I liked an Aoife album a coupla months back. This sounds like the Roches if the Roches weren’t great – B-
