Review
The Amazons by The Amazons
The Guardian

The Amazons have a playful rockiness that could see them rise above the surfeit of indie revivalists, but right now they’re still a little too close to landfill.

Review
The Amazons by The Amazons
NME

‘The Amazons’ will do little to dispel any of the criticisms of the current state of rock, but there’s just enough here to suggest that when the band are at their most electrifying, not much can halt their inevitable rise to the top – despite what the old guard say.

Review
The Amazons by The Amazons
Clash

Presenting a portfolio of some of the best ‘rawk’ songs 2017 has to offer, The Amazons have remained consistent and have begun to embed themselves into the rich tapestry of rock ‘n’ roll with a bolshy stadium sound.

Review
A World of Masks by The Heliocentrics
The Independent

It’s an engrossing set throughout, leading one through the subdued swirls of “Dawn Chorus” to the climax of “The Uncertainty Principle”, another work whose throbbing organ and cavernous twang owe a distinct debt to Can.

Review
A World of Masks by The Heliocentrics
GIGsoup

With ‘A World Of Masks’ The Heliocentrics have created an album that defiantly refuses to be pigeon-holed. It’s a refreshing listen for its almost bloody-minded individualism; psychedelia it may be, but ‘A World Of Masks’ relies on none of the genre’s cliches.

A World of Masks by The Heliocentrics

Review
Black Laden Crown by Danzig
Paste

It’s not just that his powerful basso profundo voice has lost some of its profundo from decades of use, it’s that the music and vocals can’t gel like they could when the mix is so imbalanced like this. They sound like two separate entities roughly slapped together.

Review
Black Laden Crown by Danzig
Consequence of Sound

Danzig’s new selection of songs may work for gloomy gatherings, but it falls short when it comes to building on the group’s previous legacy.

Review
Black Laden Crown by Danzig
AllMusic

It marks a return to the brooding, largely midtempo, blues-based biker horror jams of yore, with a smattering of doomy, Samhain-era malevolence tossed in for good measure

Review
Waiting on a Song by Dan Auerbach
GIGsoup

'Waiting On A Song' is a tight and authentically arranged homage to hook-laden '70s Pop Rock, executed with style and panache.

Relaxer by alt-J

Its compact eight tracks, running at a mere 40 minutes, offer controlled segments of medidative horizons and wry alt-pop – sequenced like binary code.

From A Room: Volume 1 by Chris Stapleton
Exclaim!

The genre is wide, but Stapleton's Room is so narrow and old-fashioned that, despite its quality songwriting, it feels stifling at times.

Review
Distorted Forms by Blood Sun Circle
Exclaim!

Distorted Forms somehow manages to take the stark intensity of their impeccable 2014 LP, Bloodiest/Sunniest, a step further. The new album is even denser and muddier throughout, the riffs heavier, the tones grungier and the vocals more biting.

El Dorado by Shakira

The Following Mountain by Sam Amidon
The Independent
It’s a remarkable departure for Amidon, who also eschews his usual traditional repertoire in favour of original material, albeit haunted by similar hints of fate, animism and violence.

Review
The Following Mountain by Sam Amidon
AllMusic
By nature of its creative process, the album has a more meandering character than much of his prior material, but still renders Amidon's ramshackle, instinctive-sounding style and elemental arrangements, which can make synthesizers and programming seem downright rustic in context.

The Following Mountain by Sam Amidon

Kids in the Street by Justin Townes Earle
Rolling Stone

Forming a trilogy with 2014's Single Mothers and 2015's Absent Fathers, J.T. Earle's latest teams him with Omaha indie-rock don Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes) for his rangiest set yet.

Kids in the Street by Justin Townes Earle
American Songwriter

Genre-hopping within the course of a single album can be tricky; done poorly, it can come off like a disjointed mess. Justin Townes Earle pulls off the feat quite nicely on Kids In The Street, demonstrating impressive versatility without getting tripped up by any single stylistic detour.

Kids in the Street by Justin Townes Earle

Kids in the Street doesn't sound or feel like a masterpiece, but it does suggest Earle was aiming higher than expected for this album, and he hit the target -- this is among his very best work to date.

Kids in the Street by Justin Townes Earle
PopMatters

Major life events always seem to cause inner reflection and examination. In this regard, Kids in the Street seems to be the moment where Earle is taking stock of his life, remembering back on what got him to this point, and looking onward to what may greet him on this next phase.

Teenage Emotions by Lil Yachty

Shake the Shudder by !!!

It’s unfortunate, but this awkward inconsistency makes Shake The Shudder reminiscent of a night out where, at half past 11, you realise that Red Stripe does in fact taste like shite, and you'd be better off tucked up in bed listening to Spotify.
