Review // Mount Kimbie – Cold Spring Fault Less Youth

Mount Kimbie -  Cold Spring Fault Less Youth Warp // Out Now Before it even had time to breath, “dubstep” became a dirty word, its commercial...

Review // Arctic Monkeys – AM

Domino - September 9th … Or the album the Queens of the Stone Age would have made if they were from Yorkshire. While that glib statement...

I Break Horses – Chiaroscuro // Album Review

Imagine School Of Seven Bells making eyes at Depeche Mode, with Lindén’s glacial coo acting as glue. Like I said, really bloody good.

Afgan Whigs – Do To The Beast // Album Review

A record of just the sort of characteristically gusty, propulsive rock and roll they’ll have been wishing for.

Spoon – They Want My Soul // Album Review

This is Spoon at the peak of their powers, a freshness to the tracks gained by working with outside producers for the first time

Jessie Ware – Tough Love // Album Review

Cleansing herself from past demons before married life begins, get ready to fall in love with Jessie Ware all over again - there's absolutely nothing tough about it

Tanya Tagaq – Animism // Album Review

For all its difficult elements, or perhaps because of them, Animism is genuinely an adventure. An album unlike anything you'll hear all year

The Go! Team – The Scene Between // Album Review

Impactful vocal hooks and euphoric melodic swells make The Scene Between as revitalising as a lungful of sea breeze

The Lovely Eggs – This Is Our Nowhere // Album Review

Lancastrian duo The Lovely Eggs continue their predilection for accented, disorderly and melodic pop music... This Is Our Nowhere is to be appreciated as a collection of lyrically absurd, short and snappy punk songs

Bully – Feels Like // Album Review

They’ve found their niche and they thrive within it, but such are the quantities of irresistibly sweet pop coating on their refreshing brand of neo-grunge.

They Might Be Giants – Why? // Album Review

They Might Be Giants might be the only band who can make music for both children and adults without sounding pathetically quaint

The Spook School – Try To Be Hopeful // Album Review

Ultimately, this record succeeds because of its earnest, uplifting spirit. A reason to be hopeful, indeed.

Africaine 808 – Basar // Album Review

The duo’s first album as eschews the pleasure-principled escapism of the Nineties ambient house scene.

Big Ups – Before A Million Universes

Shot through with existential dread, Big Ups’ second album simmers with barely-contained rage

Eagulls – Ullages // Album Review

On Ullages, Eagulls have tapped into an incredible knack for making the dreary sound delightfully dreamy

Deerhoof – The Magic // Album Review

The Magic isn’t a landmark release in Deerhoof's canon, but it’s perhaps more coherent than their last few, the sound of a rock band revelling in being the only ones doing whatever it is they do

Crystal Castles – Amnesty (I) // Album Review

Edith is here. Get over it. Move on.

Vomitface – Hooray For Me // Album Review

Hooray For Me could easily soundtrack each phase of a storm; a brittle yet powerful first step

Adam Betts – Colossal Squid // Album Review

Detractors will say it‘s all triggers and software, but it’s hard to deny Colossal Squid’s intelligent design

WSTR – Red, Green Or In Between // Album Review

Despite falling a little short in terms of musical originality, WSTR have done incredibly well with this debut, and 2017 looks to be a promising year for the band.

Tim Darcy – Saturday Night // Album Review

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