That good.

Words by

Bianca O'Neill

You’d be forgiven for thinking you’d accidentally popped on an M.I.A album from the opening strains of Tkay Maidza’s latest. And then followed it up with some FKA twigs, Azealia Banks and Charli XCX. Yep, it really is that good.

TKAY is the perfect pairing of gritty hip hop and pop, a fusion that seems to still elude even the best.

Our local rapper du jour has come a long way from her festival hit ‘Brontosaurus’ and we should be proud as punch that we have an Aussie chick killing the rap game (without even a hint of that tired ‘Aussie hip hop’ flavour).

Feat. all the worst Californian rock clichés.
It’s the fun, jaunty-pop we’ve come to know Arcade Fire for.
Looks like this New Orleans band has finally hit its stride.
A fat bunch of hits does not an album make.
An all-out glam rock album.
Is it wrong to want more?
A debut album four years in the making.
Frankly, not their best work.
A voice for the angry.
The little electro band that could.
This is the classic Garbage sound I grew up with.
You've made us proud.
Lacking M83's usual energy and creative spark.
Thanks to Bey, Tidal's finally making waves.
Strangely underwhelming.
Could've used a little more soul.
The future of pop music.
Much like his twitter account, it's a bit of a mess.
Clearly a very personal album for frontman, Kele.
That Rihanna reign just don't let up.
There's still nobody out there with a voice like this.
A pop-synth track with intense feeling.
Get ready for your next fave artist Australia.
