G.O.O.D. Music — Cruel Summer


Hip Hop/Rap

Ryan Querbach
Kanye West and his G.O.O.D. Music crew have finally dropped their long-awaited compilation album, Cruel Summer. It has its moments, but overall falls short of the high expectations that come with any Kanye project.

Eureeka — Polysynthetic Fields


Indie

Zach Hale
It’s always refreshing to hear music that embraces its own eccentricity, yet presents it in an accessible and meek fashion. Eureeka — the Norman-based duo of Jordan Vargas and Devin Wahl — has tapped into this rarified air on its self-released EP, Polysynthetic Fields.

Kanye West — Yeezus

The skills match the ego.


Hip Hop/Rap

Zach Hale
Try as you might, but there’s no escaping Kanye West. Turn on the TV, radio, computer — hell, take a stroll downtown and you might see his mug projected on the side of a building. It’s an undeniable fact of life in 2013: Kanye West is bigger than Buddha, Krishna and The Beatles (today, anyway) and he’ll be the first to let you know about it.

Smith Westerns — Soft Will


Indie

Zach Hale
Most bands don’t make their “mature” album until they’re, you know, mature. Chicago trio Smith Westerns is like the indie-rock equivalent of Robin Williams in Jack: just a few years removed from high school, yet appearing to age more rapidly than the majority of their contemporaries.
