32 Levels by Clams Casino
Clash

It’s further evidence of Clams’ special talents but for those who have followed his career closely, it’s hard not to think about what could have been.

Love & Hate by Michael Kiwanuka
Mojo

Kiwanuka’s talent reasserts itself on a broader canvas through 10 compelling compositions that chart the life and thoughts of a young man growing up fast and in public, all expressed in ways anyone can empathise with.

Review
Freetown Sound by Blood Orange
Drowned in Sound

It’s melodically strong enough, and bursting with so many ideas that it feels incredibly timeless: futuristic and classic all at once.

Warm On a Cold Night by Honne
The Line of Best Fit

Warm On A Cold Night is the awkward first date where no-one is quite sure what to do so they stick to the tried and tested patterns. Not bad, but not earth-shattering.

Warm On a Cold Night by Honne
The Guardian

While they capture an era of digital romance, lyrics often pan out like a persistent Tinder date.

Review
Warm On a Cold Night by Honne
DIY

It’s a debut that shows signs of life, but is ultimately stunted by the shallowness of the music and concepts that shape it.

Review
Warm On a Cold Night by Honne
AllMusic

It's better to focus on the delivery ..., and let the sultry vibes wash over you, or suck you in, as ultimately that's HONNE's real intention here.

Red Earth & Pouring Rain by Bear's Den
The Line of Best Fit

Red Earth and Pouring Rain is an admirably ambitious album and presents Bear’s Den as a far more diverse, capable band that many would have previously thought.

Review
Red Earth & Pouring Rain by Bear's Den
Drowned in Sound

Rather than the swan song it could have been, it's instead a record that's provided Bear's Den a new lease of life, allowing them to build on the solid foundations laid as a trio and create something that not only feels like a natural progression, but is also staggeringly pretty in the process.

Review
Red Earth & Pouring Rain by Bear's Den
Clash

Every piece of ‘Red Earth & Pouring Rain’ is so undeniably delicate and intricate, like an antique family heirloom, it even makes you question how hard you hit the play button for fear of damage.

Review
Kuiper by Floating Points
XLR8R

The full 30 minutes of Kuiper seems logical as a comfortable extension of, and compromise between, Shepherd's recent discography.

Review
Kuiper by Floating Points
Under The Radar

While both tracks suffer from their length, there is still an underlying hint of Shepherd's innovative mastery. It's the failure of this to come to the fore that means the Kuiper EP is not the best demonstration of what it's creator is capable of.

Singer Michael Kiwanuka’s new album is a sprawling soul opus full of longing and self-assessment.  It's a bittersweet offering, growing more melancholy as it plays.

Lil Uzi Vert vs. The World by Lil Uzi Vert

Here, Uzi doesn’t stray far from what’s comfortable, and all nine instrumentals on the tape are perfectly suitable for him to mix insight, humor, and endearing honesty that fuel his best songs.

Review
noir by Luxury Elite
Tiny Mix Tapes

While retaining most of the sonic trappings of previous recordings, noir jettisons vaporwave’s weighty, psuedo-academic treatment of critical narrative — chic critique — for a more familiar dialogue, one defined by finitude and linearity.
