New Music August

August 4


Current Joys 

The mastermind behind Current Joys, Nick Rattigan, will be releasing his new album, “LOVE + POP.” Rattigan took heavy inspiration from late rapper Lil Peep, who had a sound of his own. “LOVE + POP” is definitely a passion project that spans the genres of house and rap with a feature from Lil Yachty. Rattigan described the album as a “tribute to  process of creating.” 


The Front Bottoms 

With the announcement of their upcoming tour, the New Jersey natives are anticipating the release of their new album, “You Are Who You Hang With.” The pop-punk band is known for its unique sound and interesting lyrics that divert to great storytelling. 


SIde note: The band will be stopping in St. Augustine on November 3, 2023, as a part of the leg of their North American tour.

Mick Jenkins

“The Patience,” Mick Jenkin’s new album is, “an expression of his frustration with the  process of progression.” The album comes with a feature from fellow rapper JID, “Smoke Break-Dance”, which personifies the idiosyncratic flows between the two. 


“I see this as a period of time in one’s journey, no matter the length, where the unseen things must take place,” said Jenkins, “it’s through these moments where I’ve found myself being the most frustrated with patience. And this body of work sounds like that frustration.” 



Hoizer, a personal favorite, has decided to bless us with a new project, “Unreal Unearth.” This comes four years after his last album, “Wasteland Baby.” Unreal Unearth will include released songs, “Eat Your Young” and “All Things End.”


If you want to wrap your ears in a warm hug, I would check out the Irish native, who has hits such as “Take Me to Church” and “Would That I.”

Victoria Monet 

My latest go-to summer jam has definitely been “On My Mama” by Victoria Monet, which includes a groovy sample of “I Look Good” by Chalie Boy. A former songwriter Ariana Grande, Monet has continued to break through in the music world as her own artist. Monet will begin “The Jaguar Tour” starting in September. 


“Jaguar II” will be an extension of her 2020 album, “Jaguar,” which is a masterpiece in itself. I’m anticipating the release which will feature artists such as Lucky Daye and Buju Banton.
