NO ENCORE #117 | Ye Day
NO ENCORE returns to review a Kanye West album for the very first time, and what an album to start with.
Elsewhere, there’s live recaps of Forbidden Fruit and Nick Cave – who also gets his very own Listening Guide – some brief metal discussion, a bizarre Taylor Swift-related list and various other nonsense.
ACT ONE: It’s the preamble bit.
ACT TWO: Happy Birthday to the most misunderstood snare drum in all of music.
ACT THREE: Kanye West and his most divisive album to date.
ACT FOUR: 10 tracks by Nick Cave worthy of your ears.
ACT FIVE: Songs of the Week featuring Maroon 5, Cardi B, Charli XCX, The 1975, Esya and Gorillaz.
EXIT MUSIC: Bicurious – ‘Sleep’
