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.

As we sink deeper into the grey slab of miserablism that forms the London winter, Flowering Jungle does everything you want from a Monster Rally album, and more.

Django Django – Marble Skies // Album Review

Django Django’s Marble Skies is a genre-blending spectrum of trippy, dance-fuelled fun. With the band returning to their DIY aesthetic, the collection feels fresh and summer-ready.

Protomartyr – Relatives In Descent // Album Review

It's all as rich in love as it is in violence.

Public Access TV – Street Safari // Album Review

But would temperance curb the creative dynamic of a quartet who shared more with their city's late-Seventies scenesters than just a preference for hedonism over hygiene? Happily not.

Nakhane – You Will Not Die // Album Review

Album highlights 'You Will Not Die' and 'Presbyteria' are slow-burning, piano-led anthems that put tenderness at the forefront of the record; his pain is there, demanding to be heard, but it's resilient.

Marquis Hawkes – The Marquis Of Hawkes // Album Review

A rare long player that captures the sheer fearlessness of its creator.
