Album in heaviest rotation: “Bambi by Hippo Campus: Hippo Campus’ sophomore record is a hit in my book! it’s an odd departure from their debut record Landmark featuring weird synth hooks and airy vocal but it’s a step in the right direction. Album highlights: “Anxious” & “Bubbles.”

Album in heaviest rotation: Down 2 Earth, Vol. 4 by Ras G: Ras G passed away this past month, but his newest album showed he had no intention of slowing down. Truly one of the greatest beatmakers of our time, this album displayed only a small percentage of his talent.”

Album in heaviest rotation: On Fire by Galaxie 500: This album is really pretty timeless. It came out in ’89 but could’ve been released last week. This album always catches me when I’m feeling a little emo but it’s perfect for those end-of-summer final grass hangouts in the park.”
