Review // Lanterns on the Lake – Until The Colours Run

Bella Union - September 7th The endlessly ambiguous category of ‘alternative rock’ has become, to say the least, over-saturated in recent years. Through the incredible...

Mogwai – Rave Tapes // Album Review

as with 2011’s Hardcore Will Never Die…, it fails to break the sonic conventions that once marked them out as such a significant force in the world of post-rock.

Oceaán – Oceaán EP // Album Review

It's Oceaán's world, but the fractured beats make it seem magnificently alien at times.

Flamingods – Hyperborea // Album Review

the title referring to a mythical land of eternal sunshine, Hyperborea plays like a sonic odyssey; a quick fire tour of the globe

SBTRKT – Wonder Where We Land // Album Review

While undoubtedly harder work than its predecessor, stick with Wonder Where We Land and you’ll get brilliantly lost in SBTRKT's wonderful world

Panda Bear – Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper // Album Review

Armed only with some instruments and a bucketful of reverb, Panda Bear fends off the reaper with a collection of angelic, echoing songs. The death (of blissful electronic music) has been averted again.

Tobias Jesso Jr – Goon // Album Review

The tendency to mention Tobias Jesso Jr’s personal misfortunes when assessing his music often obstructs the fact that it’s extremely derivative.

Django Django – Born Under Saturn // Album Review

Django Django have created another mellowed but rich, meritorious art-rock masterpiece.

A break-neck, post-modern venture down the aisles of garage, surf and post punk, it sounds like a secretly recorded surf album by Devo.

Teeth Of The Sea – Highly Deadly Black Tarantula // Album Review

It’s electronic drone metal for the dancefloor, with trumpets. It’s the soundtrack to a non-existent film about contracting STDs from tantric sex with robots. It’s terrifying. Listen to it, now.

Matmos – Ultimate Care II // Album Review

The barrage of banging metronomic grooves and water-based samples are softened with a variety of other truly alien, yet intriguing, sonic oddities

Frankie Cosmos – Next Thing // Album Review

Though Next Thing might be less immediate than the sweet and melodic indie pop charm of its predecessor, make no mistake, it’s no less brilliant

Woodkid & Nils Frahm – Ellis // Album

Delicate pianos are accompanied by little more than an analogue crackle, an occasional intake of breath or the imposing weight of a single bass note.

Boys Forever // Album Review

Boys Forever is a fascinating release that blends melancholic lyrics with a contradictory cheerfulness – certainly marking ‘one to watch’ in 2017.


Woah Dad! - August 26th  Swedish psych outfit Hashish, headed by Subliminal Sounds honcho Stefan Kéry, bring us their debut full-length A Product Of. If...

The Finks – Middling // Album Review

Middling is the undoubted sound of suburban reflection, pondering relationships and our place in the world.

The xx – I See You // Album Review

Transition is the key word here, not revolution.

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.
