IN THIS WEEKS REVIEW, WE LOOK DIVE INTO THE WORLD OF INDIE-POP AS WE TAKE A DEEPER LOOK INTO THE PRODUCTION OF DUCKTAILS AND TAME IMPALA
Hard Rock Cafe Chernobyl
The New Jersey native released his latest album “Hard Rock Cafe Chernobyl”, as the album is packed with differentiating sounds, dynamics, and genres. The artist that is known for his song “Kollin the vibe”, Ducktails has risen into the music industry due to his vocal and production talents. On “Hard Rock Chernobyl”, a 30 song collection, Ducktails leaves out vast amounts of lyrics as most the the songs do not contain words. Although the album has little lyrical meaning, the artist has made great improvements on the production of his music. Instead of guitars, and other band instruments that he usually uses, the artist uses a whole new ensemble of electric sounds and synths to create interesting sounds, one that is unique to itself. The best way I can describe the album is that it sounds like elevator music but to a much better and interesting tone. Songs like “Debauchery” and “Fucking in the Sky” are songs that bring out a different ducktails, with in your face but quite entertaining futuristic sounds and chords. Other songs, such as “Smoking in the Rental” and “Catch a Rising Star” bring back that soothing and controlled sound that Ducktails has been known for. The album is a new perspective and aspect of the New Jersey artist, but his unique take on it has made the album much enjoyable to listen to.

It Might Be Time
After announcing that a new album is on the way sometime in 2020, Tame Impala has dropped two new singles in light of the album. One of the singles, “It Might be Time” shows off Kevin Parker’s skills and experiments with the keyboard, as well as holding into his psych-rock sound. The song delivers a sound that is the combination of 70’s electronic pop with interesting percussion and guitar. The percussion layered on stretched out synths create for that soulful and pop vibe that fans expect to hear from the artist. The song seems to have more flare and action than his earlier releases and that excites me to see what the artist has in store for he new Album. Although Parker has spent tons of time featuring on other artist work, the soulful and stringy artist has completed another great single that fans can enjoy for a while, or at least until he drops his album that is carrying a 5 -year wait.
