This week in music artists ranging from Foster the People to Lana Del Rey and Tyler the Creator released new music. In addition, mega festival FYF hit Los Angeles.

Foster the People’s Sacred Hearts Club reflects the sixties not only as it incorporates groovy and psychedelic elements, but also as it exudes ideals about love and politics from the time.

The Los Angeles natives use the album as a platform to spread love, positivity and unity. The band revealed their inspiration which fueled the new album, “We live in a trying time right now. Racism, sexism, classism, homophobia, and religious persecution are more rampant than ever.”

This record was made in defiance against those cancerous ideas. Hopefully it makes you feel as it made us feel when we were working on it- that life is beautiful. And love will always be bigger than politics.”

Singles released earlier this summer, like “Sit Next to Me” and “Loyal Like Sid & Nancy,” come together to make Foster the People’s most mature and politically stimulating album yet.



Lana Del Rey changes up her dark twist on pop music in Lust For Life as she empowers her youthful audience with the opening track “Love”.

She collaborated with artists like The Weeknd, A$AP Rocky, Playboi Carti and Stevie Nicks. Lana Del Rey crosses the threshold as she transitions from dark to light, a movement beautifully narrated in her closing piece “Get Free.”




This was a big weekend for the City of Angels as FYF Fest 2017 showcased artists, including Solange, Nine Inch Nails, and Mura Masa.

Frank Ocean made his way back to the stage to headline the Southern California festival.

Gaining success after his hit single “Thinking Bout You” and his recent album Blonde, the Long Beach native kicked off his set with singles “Solo” and “Chanel”.

Mid-set, Frank Ocean and unexpected guest Brad Pitt share the stage as the singer serenades him with “Close to You”.
