Reviews

Music and album reviews from the staff of 89.3 The Current.

Album of the Week: Run the Jewels, 'RTJ4'


Ahead of their times at all times, Run The Jewels deliver anthems for 2020 filled with hair raising passages and an allstar list of collaborators from 2 Chainz, Pharrell Williams, Zack De La Rocha and Mavis Staples.

Album of the Week: Heart Bones, 'Hot Dish'


Capturing the essence of their riotously fun live shows on a record, Heart Bones' debut is brawny and sprightly. Until the day we can once again watch Ellis and Tillmann boogie around the stage in spandex, 'Hot Dish' will hit all the right pleasure spots.

Album of the Week: Pearl Jam, 'Gigaton'


The album is a blend of their ever-urgent rock songs, alongside richly emotional, powerful ballads that sometimes verge on being outright power ballads.
