Critical Voices: Kendrick Lamar, DAMN.

DAMN., Kendrick Lamar’s latest project, continues his trend of creating exceptional, politically-charged rap that forges a distinct sound. While DAMN. is difficult to characterize stylistically, it is a clear departure from his musically dense, and at times chaotic, 2015 album To Pimp A Butterfly. Lamar has chosen to keep his instrumentals simple throughout DAMN., usually…

Arca, Venezuelan electronic producer, DJ, and songwriter, opened his recent self-titled project with haunting humming, rich bass, and ethereal ringing. This sound so severely defies expectations that one finds it hard to believe that Arca, who played a critical role in the infamous Kanye West album Yeezus and has been prominent within the IDM movement…

The brownstone houses populating our quaint neighborhood are home to diplomats, lawyers, and politicos alike, with boutiques, cafes, and salons peppered throughout. An occasional gallery is wedged among this eclectic mix, a reminder of Washington’s vibrant artistic community and a gathering place for those who support that community.

Keisha’s Song (Her Vice) – Ashtro Bot provides a catchy hook for this Kendrick classic, which features the lyricism, meaning, and vivid narration that has made Lamar such a lauded artist. Lamar seems uncannily able to tell the stories of society’s castaways, and “Keisha’s Song” is perhaps the most poignant example of that. Rigamortus –…

Liberals, myself included, are in a well-documented crisis. Friction between progressives dominates my news feed more than arguments across ideologies. Divides have opened between focus on identity politics and economics, pitting Democratic outsiders versus insiders, Sen. Bernie Sanders versus Secretary Hillary Clinton. Where we go from here, and what the future of the Democratic Party…

After dropping a cryptic Instagram post midday on Thursday March 23, Kendrick Lamar released his first single since Untitled Unmastered a year ago this month. “The Heart Part 4” is a wide-ranging, almost 5-minute reassertion of Lamar’s status in hip-hop. Never one to shy away from non-traditional beats, “Part 4” opens with Lamar rapping over a…

After rising to fame as the bassist for the psychedelic pop group Tame Impala, Cameron Avery takes a starkly different artistic direction in his latest album, Ripe Dreams, Pipe Dreams. Tame Impala claimed their niche in the industry with spacey, dreamlike instrumentals, distorted vocals, and forlorn lyrics, attracting acid-chasing teens and summer festival-goers alike. Eschewing…
