    When Macklemore declares his music is David Bowie meets Kanye sh*t, it's a bit of an oversell on the Bowie side, but then again, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring are also honored as influences during Ten Thousand Hours, the biographical highlight that opens the Seattle rapper's vibrant sophomore release.


    These arty name-drops threaten to paint the album as more obscure than it is, but even as glitch electronica and Mad Rad member Buffalo Madonna strange up the breakup number Thin Line, The Heist comes off as instant, alive, and oh so welcoming. Chalk it up to Macklemore's playful and open lyrics (When I was in the third grade/I thought I was gay/Because I could draw, my uncle was, and I kept my room straight) or the album's not so secret weapon, Ryan Lewis, the producer who earns his co-billing with a George Martin or Dave Fridmann-sized sense of purpose and an Internet kid's sense of utilizing anything and/or everything. For the music industry takeover Jimmy Iovine with Ab-Soul as guest, Lewis' production is a mix of G-Unit gangster music and a Houston hip-hop trunk rumbler, while the pro-gay marriage highlight Same Love with Mary Lambert is supported by full-bodied piano and the sound of a bittersweet marching band, all of it familiar yet twisted through a laptop with hypnotic loops and catchy hooks coming out. Gold (feeling like 500,000 sold) is joyous and bright mini-electro that feeds the positive side of the soul, while Can't Hold Us comes with an irresistible bounce, both tracks being light, lovely, and in contrast to the numbers that deal with Macklemore's addiction issues and other obstacles.


    These two talented young bucks can't be contained, and hearing them offer one memorable, meaty number after another makes for an exciting listen, but this is unfiltered freshness released on Macklemore's own label, so the concepts of restraint and focus take a slight hit, leaving the is-he-Eminem, is-he-Childish Gambino, or is-he-Grieves question with no clear winner. Here, he's a mix of all of the above with some distinctive qualities, and with Lewis putting that kaleidoscope style underneath, The Heist winds up a rich combination of fresh and familiar.

    Heart On My Sleeve

    Before Mary Lambert achieved "quasi-stardom" (as she puts it in her typical self-deprecating way) for writing and singing the hook on Macklemore & Ryan
    Lewis' marriage equality anthem "Same Love," the Seattle native was an aspiring singer-songwriter who also worked as a brunch waitress and bartender.
    After years of struggling both financially and personally, Lambert suddenly found herself signed to Capitol Records, releasing an EP (Welcome To The
    Age of My Body), nominated for two Grammy Awards (for "Song of the Year" and "Album of The Year"), and making history performing on the Grammy
    telecast with Macklemore, Lewis, and Madonna, while Queen Latifah memorably married 33 couples. "I like to describe Heart On My Sleeve as a pop
    album with a conscience," Lambert says about her debut full-length album. "So I made a list of goals" to: 1. Have fun. 2. Create something catchy. 3.
    Create something that positively impacts the world. 4. Stay true to yourself. 5. Make money. "Is that okay to say?" she asks.


    Written within the past year (with lyrics by Lambert and music co-written by Lambert, co-producers Eric Rosse and Benny Cassette, and songwriter
    MoZella), Heart On My Sleeve is an honest depiction of where Lambert is now. "I can only write about the experiences I've had. I signed to a major label. I
    went through a break-up. I figured out how to be an independent person. I have been terrifyingly honest to the public about traumatic events in my life. I
    met the woman of my dreams. I have been on the road nonstop, away from those I love, but with the opportunity to sing about gay rights to hundreds of
    thousands of people. This album is inspired by the depth of all of that love, and the journey that it takes to get there." "Heart On My Sleeve" is a dusky
    love song that Lambert chose as the title track because she felt it summed up how she approached writing the lyrics on the album. "I've always lived my
    life completely open, both to getting hurt, but also to love," she says. Lambert also spells out her mission on the album's first single, "Secrets," which - set
    to a buoyant pop melody and hand-claps - is meant to encourage vulnerability.

    Time To Go Home

    Chastity belt is a rock band consisting of four friends - guitarists Julia Shapiro and Lydia Lund, bassist Annie Truscott, and drummer Gretchen Grimm. They met in a tiny college town in eastern Washington, but their story begins for real in Seattle, that celebrated home of Macklemore and the twelfth man. Following a post-grad summer apart, a handful of shows and enthusiastic responses from the city's diy community led them, as it has countless others, into a cramped practice space. They emerged with a debut album, No Regerts, sold it out faster than anyone involved thought possible, and toured America, a country that embraced them with open-ish arms. Now they're back and the tab is settled, the lights are out, the birds are making noise even though the sun isn't really up yet: it's time to go home, their second long-player and first for hardly art. In the outside world, they realized something crucial: they didn't have to play party songs now that their audience didn't consist exclusively of inebriated 18-22 year olds, as it did in that college town. Though still built on a foundation of post-post-punk energy, jagged rhythms, and instrumental moves that couldn't be anyone else's, the songs they grew into in the months that followed are equal parts street-level takedown and gray-skied melancholy. They embody the sensation of being caught in the center of a moment while floating directly above it; shapiro's world spins around her on on the floor, grounded by Grimm and Truscott's most commanding playing committed to tape. They pay tribute to writer Sheila Heti on drone and John Carpenter with the thing, and deliver a parallel-universe stoner anthem influenced by electrelane with joke. recorded by JosÉ Díaz Rohena at the unknown, a desecrated church and former sail factory in anacortes, and mixed with a cathedral's worth of reverb by Matthew Simms (guitarist for legendary british post-punks and one-time tourmates Wire), time to go home sees Chastity Belt take the nights out and bad parties of their past to their stretching points, watch the world around them break apart in anticipatory haze, and rebuild it in their own image with stunning clarity before anyone gets hungover.
