Another slowish week, but not without its gems. Album of the Week : Artist : PJ Album : Rare Quick Description : Groove-heavy R&B. Why You Should Listen : PJ might be a name you'll be hearing more lately if there's any justice in the world. Overall Thoughts...

Halfway There: Albums We Missed
Due to either Spotify delays, learning of acts later, or general incompetence, there are some solid albums we missed along the way. I figured I'd take a few minutes and highlight some of those releases and list the rest: Kanye West - The Life of Pablo : If...
