Lowkey Movin’ On – Insecure Season 4, Episode 5 Recap

This post is in partnership with HBO. As always, thoughts and opinions are my own. Not Cool – It’s 3:32 a.m. and Issa is wide awake at home, stressed, because she still needs a headliner for the Block Party. She gets on the ‘gram and sees that Nathan is active so she DMs him. He asks if she wants to talk and the answer is yes, because she dials his number. He big ups her for the upcoming event, but she laments that she’s still struggling to find a main act. He got the place to himself because A...

Boldy James & The Alchemist – “The Price of Tea in China” (Album Review)

This is the long-awaited sophomore album from Detroit emcee Boldy James. A man who rose to fame with his Alchemist produced 2013 debut M.1.C.S. (My 1st Chemistry Set). This resulted in a contract with Nas’ independent label Mass Appeal Records, but unfortunately Boldy got locked up for a while. He eventually made his comeback a few years ago with his House of Blues mixtape & now after reuniting with the Uncle Al on his Boldface EP a couple months ago, they’re back again with The Price of Tea in...

Album Review: ‘Queen & Slim: The Soundtrack’

“Queen & Slim,” the film, traffics in sudden tragedy and symbolic terror as it portrays the violence of self-defense and self-awareness in stark, painful terms. It deserves an equally audacious score and soundtrack, a job that has gone to another Devonté Hynes, the British singer, songwriter, guitarist, record producer and director in his guise of Blood […]

Coachella 2019: Tame Impala, Billie Eilish, and Weezer cap off Saturday in the desert

While Tame Impala technically headlined the main stage at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on Saturday – and played a strong and enjoyable set – two other acts, one old, one new, captured most of the conversation as the second day of the festival wound down. Weezer, who play festival sets around their native Southern California so often they almost feel like the region’s house band, turned in one of its strongest sets in recent memory, thanks partly to the cross-pollination its recent al...
