5 New Albums You Need to Hear This Week

EST Gee, Nasty C, Idahams, Mura Masa, and KA$HDAMI all released new albums this week that you need to hear.

Lucky for us plebes there were cameras around and, as a result, we've been treated to a silent film that documents the lead up to the big event and all that went into developing one of the most sought-after fashion lines this year.

As the title suggests, the visual is completely devoid of sound which creates a very unique experience. I'm never one to give an easy thumb's up, but the shots here are striking and do much to suck the viewer into his world. It's somehow endearing, as if we were there and helped out, but an interesting take on recapping the event anyway.

Meanwhile, there is still no word on SWISH, which is not sitting well with West die hards.
