★★★★ Silicon is the brainchild of Kody Nielson, and is a world away from his previous musical endeavors under the Opossom pseudonym and as the eclectic lead singer of The Mint Chicks—who double as my all-time favourite New Zealand group.

On first listen, my interpretation of it was that it focused on the themes and emotions of a […]

★★★★½ Dre is finally back in the game. After 16 agonising years of waiting for the follow-up to 1999’s classic 2001, Dr. Dre has finally dropped Compton as a surprise release. Compton is inspired by the upcoming film Straight Outta Compton, which of course depicts the story of NWA. As there seems to currently be […]
