“This album is some fuckin’ earnest shit.”
Autolux just dropped one of the best albums you’ll hear this year, called Pussy’s Dead. Prepare the rocketship for take off.
Even now, eleven years after their self-titled debut, IV is just as refreshing and powerful as ever. The new album introduces synthesizer and…is that accordion?
With twelve 2-minute triumphs, don’t assume any lack of bang for your buck on the new Beat Awfuls album.
I was lucky enough to hear Black Sheep Boy when it first came out ten years ago. It was a defining album for me, and I took it everywhere I went.
The West Sussex three-piece is one big ball of messy energy on their second release, Modern Dancing, and its vibe is so ‘water off a ducks back’, it’s almost quacking.
Kurt is like a pothead therapist—quiet, intuitive, philosophical and always high. If you like Kurt Vile: good news. You’re gonna love this album.
Man, does Wand make you feel like a real pile of lazy bones or what? 1000 Days is their third album since last year.
How Painted Palms are going to decide which tracks to release as singles is beyond me. Whole thing is chockablock with them.
The most anticipated/hyped/attempted to be torrented album drops July 17. If you didn’t already listen to it on NPR, here’s what you can expect.
This album is all parts funk and zero parts suck. Doesn’t even rhyme. But it probably would if I were Finnish.
Is there a person left on this big mound of clay we call Planet E that isn’t excited as hell about the release of Mad Max: Fury Road? Everyone’s talking about the movie, but why isn’t anyone talking about the soundtrack?
Dudes are, like, sixty five years old now and still throwing down like they’re running Detroit in their heyday. Guess Death really knows no bounds.
A few years ago, I wrote a kind of scathing review of Sonny & The Sunsets album, Longtime Companion. I have always hoped for the chance to redeem myself, and apologise to Sonny Smith. So here it is. Sorry, sonny.
Petite Noir’s debut EP, The King of Anxiety, is a real kick in the guts to anyone moaning about how hard it is to sound slick on your debut record. Dude sounds like he’s been at it for decades.
