Cymbals Eat Guitars – Pretty Years // Album Review

Pretty Years finds Cymbals Eat Guitars continuing their journey as one of the best rock acts around

Hatchie – Keepsake // Album Review

On Keepsake, the Brisbane artist retains the twinkling tones of her near-faultless Sugar & Spice EP but at points quarries deeper for trudging beats and lurching guitars.

Hand Habits – Placeholder // Album Review

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

Katy B – Little Red // Album Review

Staying true to her Rinse FM roots, Katy B’s worked with Geeneus, George Fitzgerald, Jacques Greene and Artwork to create big-hearted pop

Future of the Left – How To Stop Your Brain In An Accident //...

It’s the sound of a band smart enough to experiment while maintaining the brutal essence of what makes them so thrilling.

Yip Deceiver – Medallius // Album Review

Yip Deceiver remind us - much like their Kevin Barnes-fronted alma mater - that at its core, electronic music is still a hell of a lot of fun

U.S. Girls – Half Free // Album Review

Just as label mates Grimes and St. Vincent broke through on later­-career releases that struck a subversive pop note, Half Free does similar work and deserves to be considered on a equal footing to those stellar records

The Fresh & Onlys – House Of Spirits // Album Review

Flitting from jangly pop to country Americana and underpinned by garage roots, House Of Spirits works as a collection of good songs, but as an album?

Tenderlonious – The Shakedown // Album Review

Recorded in a single eight-hour session, the tunes sound fresh with Yussef Dayes' sizzling and shuffling drums as the engine room.

Dilly Dally – Heaven // Album Review

A year spent writing got the band out of the woods and back on gloriously abrasive form and, despite its uncertain beginnings, Heaven is a beacon of positivity.

Bibio – Phantom Brickworks // Album Review

It makes sense for the record to stretch over the seventy minute mark, each track mostly improvised and afforded the room to unfurl and mesmerise with quiet purpose.

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.

Lana Del Rey – Norman Fucking Rockwell! – Album Review

Norman Fucking Rockwell! is a graceful portrayal of the singer’s new-found strength and stability, marking what is undoubtedly her greatest record to date.

Cate Le Bon And Bradford Cox – Myths 004 // Album Review

Myths 004 is an outstanding record that continues the innovative work of Le Bon and Cox, while keeping us guessing as to what comes next.

Sleater-Kinney – No Cities To Love // Album Review

The trio are as impassioned as ever, intent on bolstering their already-incendiary legacy. And that’s precisely what they do, unleashing a scorching set of razor-sharp punk-rock that puts killer hooks and powerhouse choruses at its heart.

This Is The Kit – Bashed Out // Album Review

The sort of luxuriant voice that deserves its own dressing room, backed with rootsy percussive acoustica, sustained guitar harmonics and music box effects... Rapturous ambient pop

Death In Texas – Pause Between Breaths // Album Review

Listening to their music is akin to riding the bright side of a wave only to plunge into the shadow on the other side.

Frankie & The Heartstrings – Decency // Album Review

Frankie & The Heartstrings' latest is decent enough, but essentially more of the same, and ultimately a bit forgettable for it.

Mac DeMarco – Salad Days // Album Review

Lurking underneath all those ever-so-slightly detuned, drunken guitars and drawling vocals, Salad Days is a wealth of properly-timeless songwriting

Idles – Joy As An Act Of Resistance // Album Interview

Danny Wright gathers Stephanie Phillips and Grant Bailey to discuss all things IDLES.

jj – V // Album Review

V is an immersive but pretty damn trying listen, one that seems less interested in offering solutions for the downtrodden than it is in dragging them down with it
