Review
Bang Bang Rock & Roll by Art Brut
Spin

Frontman Eddie Argos testifies loudly, like a karaoke drunk with a head cold, but his stories always sing, and his frisky band of London pros never fail to fire up the precise boilerplate punk riff to roil the plot.

Review
What For? by Toro Y Moi
Spin
It’s a little shocking at first — the limber, liberal use of the whammy bar, skuzzy guitar licks, and fuzzed-out solos — but it doesn’t take much time to lean into this (somewhat) new iteration of Toro Y Moi’s endlessly adaptable grooves like a head massage.

What For? by Toro Y Moi
Loud and Quiet
‘What For?’ sees the chameleonic creator explore new ground and transform into a different shade of colour yet again, with his characteristic electronics less prevalent in favour of gorgeous instrumentation.

Heterocetera by Lotic
Tiny Mix Tapes

Heterocetera is packed with writhing climaxes and blistering comedowns that leave you gasping without ever being able to forget who is behind them.

Review
Heterocetera by Lotic
The 405

Even at five tracks, Heterocetera is a strong, visceral electronic record that maintains its ambition and intensity from beginning to end.

Heterocetera by Lotic
Pitchfork

Heterocetera might not be a happy recording, but that’s what makes the five-track collection so ambitious.

Heterocetera by Lotic
AllMusic

Heterocetera is more than a worthy successor to Damsel in Distress -- it's some of Lotic's most exciting music.

Heterocetera by Lotic
Resident Advisor
Over its 20 minutes, the EP pushes dance music through violent twists and turns until it becomes disorienting and startling.

Foil Deer by Speedy Ortiz
FasterLouder

Growing pains haunt some of the deeper cuts, stalling on mid-tempo attempts at maturation that, while admirable, don’t further their songwriting craft in the way they would have hoped.

Review
English Graffiti by The Vaccines
No Ripcord

It’s not to say that English Graffiti is musically incompetent, though their impulse to borrow eighties nostalgia is more akin to that of perusing your relative’s baby boomer collection instead of following your cool uncle’s guidance.

Review
Visions by Grimes
Tiny Mix Tapes
We need pop music that sounds like this right now, because no one else seems quite so capable of confronting the tangle of expectations (or lack of expectations) in the post-capitalist music terrain.

Visions by Grimes
The Fly
‘Visions’ is an album imbued with both the zombie-like grogginess of insomnia and the dark-minded thoughts of the obsessive and overtired.

Review
Visions by Grimes
Sputnikmusic

Although Visions feels too light (but not lightweight) to indicate intentions on Boucher's part to create a record of capital-S Significance, ignoring Visions' considerable weight as a fully formed work of art discredits her achievement.

Grimes isn't spooky enough to be "ghostly," and not substantial enough to hold your attention.

Review
Visions by Grimes
Resident Advisor
Slightly distant, hazy synth pop is dime-a-dozen these days, and it's easy to get wrapped up in skepticism around this stuff. But there's something polyglot and cosmopolitan about Boucher's particular brand.

It's a Bit Complicated by Art Brut
Coke Machine Glow

It sounds pretty much the same as Bang Bang, but not as good. It's not that the record is "bad" -- it isn't -- but that it, like its title suggests, is less brash, less fuck-all incautious about its rocking.

Bang Bang Rock & Roll by Art Brut

It’s surprisingly comforting to hear a band like this come along and put everything in perspective, making you fall in love with music relating to your life, instead of becoming so grandiose and impersonal as most music has in recent years.

Review
Bang Bang Rock & Roll by Art Brut
AllMusic
Though it runs out of steam slightly (at least in comparison to the pop art brilliance of the band's best songs) on its second half, Bang Bang Rock & Roll is a terrific debut, and Art Brut is smart, catchy, and fun.

Multi-Love by Unknown Mortal Orchestra

‘Multi-Love’ shuns themes of misery and isolation in favour of the bittersweet nature of togetherness, while embracing the rich strain of funk and R&B that has always simmered beneath UMO’s work.
