Hang by Foxygen
Exclaim!

As Foxygen continue with their disparate series of throwback experiments, Hang finds them closer than ever to striking a balance between their wild, ambitious ideas and innate strengths.

Review
Future Politics by Austra
musicOMH

Future Politics is another impressive step in the evolution of Austra: while the band’s second album was a move towards shiny, commercial pop, the follow up sees a more sparse, fragile collection of songs.

Review
Future Politics by Austra
Exclaim!

Although it's an intertextual and oftentimes challenging listen, Future Politics is also a compelling call to action to collectively conceive of the future and its manifold possibilities — especially in a time when it's easier to imagine how the world ends than how it's supposed to thrive.

Review
Future Politics by Austra
NME
If you’re still feeling drained and deadened by the traumas of 2016, perhaps it’s time for a musical tonic. Like cold, clean water, Austra’s ‘Future Politics’ washes clear the mental muck, leaving you feeling alive again.

Review
Life Without Sound by Cloud Nothings
The Line of Best Fit

Life Without Sound is a triumph of Baldi’s vision - for something bigger than just hard and heavy punk, and for rock and roll with pop intelligence. He’s pulled off both here.

Review
Hang by Foxygen
Under The Radar

This is a pointedly unhip album, and that's part of what makes it so refreshing. Few other artists would embark on a project so absurdly lavish in fear that one wrong step would result in curdled cheese; Foxygen, thankfully, aren't so damn afraid.

A Shadow in Time by William Basinski

A Shadow in Time by William Basinski

You Want It Darker by Leonard Cohen
Drowned in Sound

He’s pulled out all the stops to create an album that is as bleak as it is entertaining. But don’t worry, it’s not all doom and gloom, he offers, as usual glimpses of redemption.

The Haunting Fear of Inevitability by The Drip

The incorporation of dynamic vocals, as well as various styles and tempos, add to the record's very modern vibe and make it abundantly clear that the Drip aren't your run-of-the-mill grind band.

For Posterity by Dryjacket

For Posterity is – for a pop-punk album at least – guitar-heavy and technically precise, yet accessible enough in its structure and approach that it feels inviting and easy to listen to.

Review
Oczy Mlody by The Flaming Lips
Tiny Mix Tapes
In some ways, it is as an exercise in stripping away everything that makes The Flaming Lips such a truly special group, leaving only that which serves as decorative tinsel to their music, hanging limp and lifelessly in the air.

Review
Oczy Mlody by The Flaming Lips

While Oczy Mlody finds the Lips still eager to stretch the parameters of their aesthetic 30-plus years into the game, this time, it leaves them sounding a little distended and shapeless.

Review
Future Politics by Austra
Drowned in Sound

Future Politics is political, danceable, dark, shimmering and hopeful. Not a combination easily achievable, but Austra have never been a normal band. Utopia might be fiction, but Future Politics is real, beautiful, necessary.
