Sharon Van Etten - Seventeen

Where we’re at in music now, it’s difficult to tell what’s what. What sticks? What’s popular? What’ll be a classic? What’s good? What’s bad? It seems that there are more opportunities than ever in music, but what’s what? And in following that thought, I can’t help but wonder, has music always felt this way? While I can’t answer that, these thoughts came to mind after hearing Sharon Van Etten’s “Seventeen.” I was trying to figure out what it was, and in the best possible way it felt recognizable. Felt as though I was intended to hear it.

Everything’s For Sale

Between the short film “Everything’s For Sale” and the album itself, Boogie is further proving that he is amongst one of the most relevant and thoughtful hip-hop artists today. The short film peers into various themes found throughout the album, and serves as an emotional precursor to the album.

You can stream the album on Spotify, Apple Music, SoundCloud, and more.


Here’s a track I’ve been listening to all week. You can also find it on Spotify.
