JAMBINAI // LIVE REVIEW

Jambinai tick all the right post-rock boxes, complete with their own brand of euphorically performed soundscapes.

Los Angeles Police Department – Los Angeles Police Department // Album Review

Ryan Pollie’s lyrics are enigmatic and all at once dramatic, romantic and abstract.
The Big Moon

The Big Moon – Love In The Fourth Dimension // Album Review

Nevertheless, it's brimming with charm, and The Big Moon are certainly one of the most capable new bands making music today

JMSN – Whatever Makes U Happy // Album Review

The album smacks of a confidence and assurance in its own stylings; a statement of intent from an artist who has finally found his own voice.

Diet Cig – Swear I’m Good At This // Album Review

Vulnerability might well be where Diet Cig’s inherent appeal stems from, but you can guarantee that it’s vulnerability on their own terms.

Will Joseph Cook – Sweet Dreamer // Album Review

His first full-length release presents a whole stack of clean-cut indie gems to fulfil the hype.

Blanck Mass – World Eater // Album Review

Top-heavy with dense electronica, a subdued sonic sensibility and clean production wrangle sanity back from the brink in a considered second act.

Future Islands – The Far Field // Album Review

This is pop music filtered through a shimmering, melancholic gauze.

Kelly Lee Owens – Kelly Lee Owens // Album Review

A stargazer's fantasy of club music, intended for escapism and immersion through detail-rich layers.

Goldfrapp – Silver Eye // Album Review

Silver Eye is consistently mesmerising and hangs together beautifully as a set.

Gnod – Just Say No To The Psycho Right-Wing Capitalist Fascist Industrial Death Machine...

The album’s antagonistic political edge recalls a more expansive and oblique Fugazi as the band lurches from disquiet to pure rage with a flick of a wrist

Sheer Mag – Compilation LP // Album Review

On the whole though, Sheer Mag don’t have anything to offer that we haven’t already heard before

Julien Baker – Sprained Ankle // Album Review

Sprained Ankle is chock full of gorgeous, crisp gems

WHY? – Moh Lhean // Album Review

A lot can change in four years and WHY?’s latest effort departs quite dramatically from the sound of Mumps.

Jay Som – Everybody Works // Album Review

Perhaps it doesn’t infiltrate the subconscious with the same grip as its Carly Rae Jepsen influence, but cuts like ‘Bus Song’ do lodge between the ears with impressive persistence

Jacques Greene – Feel Infinite // Album Review

Greene’s ability to litter his tracks with insatiable grooves and warped vocal samples, primed for the club, while packaged like succinct pop smashes has always been a key part of his appeal

JFDR – Brazil // Album Review

But the songwriting is magnificent throughout, and anyone with an interest in forward thinking pop should head to Brazil immediately.

Jesca Hoop – Memories Are Now // Album Review

Typically filed under folk, Jesca Hoop bends the parameters of classification.

Tim Darcy – Saturday Night // Album Review

A poetic pop record haunted by abstract and obtuse folk influences at every turn.

Lowly – Heba // Album Review

For the most part Lowly are content to sound effortless.

Los Campesinos! – Sick Scenes // Album Review

Los Campesinos! are back and thankfully, they’re on full- throttle form.
