A few musical addictions

I haven’t done a music post in a while so I thought I’d recommend a few of my favourites for this fine #musicmonday.

Drake – Thank Me Later

Now while I’ve been listening to the album a lot lately, I’m not the biggest fan of Drake. He has catchy songs, which I really enjoy from time to time, but like he says in one of them, his career is so over produced and created. I can’t see this upper class kid rapping about what he raps about and take him seriously. He lacks what the kids call “street cred”.

Eminem – Recovery

When I was a teenager I used to be such a big fan of Eminem. As the years went by and the albums got ridiculously repetitive (funny, serious, kim/hayley, repeat) I lost interest in him. I haven’t even bothered picking up his previous two albums and according to him on this one, that’s a good thing because they sucked. I’m not sure if this is a case of someone who has gone stale and is trying to revamp his career, but Eminem seems to share a lot more and not just take jabs at his family and celebs (though these themes pop up once or twice).

Broken Bells – self titled

Thanks to Twitter I was introduced to Broken Bells. I’d never heard of them before, but now I love this album. It’s a mellow album, for the most part, and EVERY song is single-worthy, which is so hard to find with music today. I highly recommend this one if you’re looking for new music to listen to.
