TEST SPIN | Ben Howard’s ‘Collections from the Whiteout’

Overall, Collections From the Whiteout is an album that I respect more than I like — it clearly represents an artist pushing themselves to their boundaries and putting an immense amount of thought into crafting their perfect album, but a casual music listener like me doesn’t necessarily need an album to be high art.

TEST SPIN | Polo G — ‘THE GOAT’

Polo G’s lyrical talent shines in this album, once again distinguishing him from his contemporaries with a passionate delivery that also often recalls an explicit story.
