Lou Rhodes – Theyesandeye

Lou Rhodes' fourth album reminds us of humanity’s incessant taste for the tragic, even among all this love

Keaton Henson – Kindly Now // Album Review

There are no happy, toe-tappers on here but you already knew that.

How To Dress Well – Care // Album Review

Care is something exciting, a record that forgoes the all-too-familiar myopic synth pop pastiche

Ricky Eat Acid – Talk To You Soon // Album Review

Talk To You Soon is a meticulous collection of glimpses into worlds packed with feelings and ideas that you either already know or – mostly – wish that you knew

Japandroids – Near To The Wild Heart Of Life // Album...

Japandroids have grown up, but it sounds like they ain't having half as much fun

Eels – The Deconstruction // Album Review

The Deconstruction is complete with all the foibles that have made them such an endearing, enduring and elusive act to their dedicated supporters.

Arcade Fire – Everything Now // Album Review

Arcade Fire fully embrace the synth and sleaze of their new direction.

St Vincent – MASSEDUCTION // Album Review

Kate Solomon and Hassan Anderson deconstruct Annie Clark's latest LP.

PBR Streetgang – Late Night Party Line // Album Review

Summer may be a hazy memory but the Loleatta Holloway-sampling title track is primed for smouldering festival sets, and it looms large over this body of work too.

Ezra Furman – Transangelic Exodus // Album Review

Although there's a shift from the indie-doo-wop of 2015's Perpetual Motion People – this is more aggressive in tone – Furman is still rooted in the same Lou Reed garage rock vein.

Dirty Projectors – Lamp Lit Prose // Album Review

A true fusion of love and collectivity was the band's real draw. Now, it's quite apparent that Dirty Projectors is not much more than a single avatar pretending to be otherwise.

AJ Tracey – AJ Tracey // Album Review

Indeed, that’s exactly what makes his debut album so emphatic – AJ is able to stretch, to absorb new influences, while remaining completely true to himself.

Advance Base – ANIMAL COMPANIONSHIP // Album Review

There's something astutely pure in Ashworth's approach to songwriting here that speaks utter volumes for his incomparable twenty-year career.

Hand Habits – Placeholder // Album Review

The tracks offer anything from rather close scrutiny of personal matters, to seeking comfort and reassurance.

Honeyblood – In Plain Sight // Album Review

It’s largely set to glassily- produced bubblegum rock that lacks the raw punch of Honeyblood’s earlier material but isn’t shy of brash pop-punk hooks.

Slaughter Beach, Dog – Safe And Also No Fear // Album...

These indie-folk anecdotes and internal musings of a far-from-spotless mind showcase Jake Ewald’s enigmatic, wry and pathos-laden storytelling.

Jacques Greene – Dawn Chorus // Album Review

A record dominated by engaging sonic beauty and real emotional impact, Dawn Chorus is an exceptional eulogy to the mercurial rave experience.

Hannah Diamond – Reflections // Album Review

Perfectly polished, it seems the label’s long-standing mission of creating a new kind of popstar have been fully realised on Reflections.

Loraine James – Hmm // EP Review

"Hmm offers us a more nuanced set of emotions: one that harnesses the promise of future shared moments and yet centres on a feeling of nostalgia"

Live Review // Wavves

Camden Underworld - 24/06/13 Throughout the course of any given gig, you expect there to maybe be a couple of moments at most in which the...

Coves // Live Review

Tuesday night at The Social, and some shoegaze, C86, dreampop, disco, goth, psychedelia, it's everything we have come to expect from Coves
