Sounds Like: The third collab between the slow and boring emcee Awol and his producer buddy (who does provide some decent beats). Simply awful.

Free Association: It’s laughable—a terrible rapper rapping about how awesome he is.

For Fans Of: Dr. Octagon, one-armed drummers, rappers with a stutter.

The Dears

Degeneration Street

(Dangerbird)

Sounds Like: The fifth LP from Montrealers led by Murray Lightburn, often dubbed “the black Morrissey,” is grandiosely dark, dramatic and lush indie rock.

Free Association: Nothing will beat ’06’s Gang of Losers, but this one’s a keeper.

For Fans Of: Arcade Fire, Broken Social Scene, the Verve x Serge Gainsbourg.
