Brick Body Kids Still Daydream by Open Mike Eagle
The Needle Drop

Brick Body Kids is Open Mike Eagle at his most low-key, but it's also his most cohesive and emotionally potent work so far.

V by The Horrors
A.V. Club

V maintains a distinctively elegant gloom, The Horrors continuing to find intoxicating new shades within their gray moods. It’s an album that confirms them as one of the most consistently surprising, most artistically sophisticated, simply greatest rock bands working today.

GEMINI by Macklemore
AllMusic

While some fans might prefer Macklemore with Lewis, Gemini is a reminder that before the multi-platinum singles, hit albums, and thrift shop threads, he could handle himself just fine.

Strange Peace by METZ

Review
Hiss Spun by Chelsea Wolfe
musicOMH
While Wolfe’s incredible vocals are the main draw, her long term collaborator Ben Chisholm deserves significant recognition too. Not only does his fuzzed-to-fuck bass make these songs feel genuinely threatening, his manipulation of sound and creation of washes and collages provides unsettling backgrounds for Wolfe to weave her magic over.

Relatives in Descent by Protomartyr
Northern Transmissions

On their fourth record, the bizarre magic of Detroit’s Protomartyr comes to an apex as they explore new sonic frontiers and get to the fringes of their expressive art. Within all this they also craft amazing songs that are just as wild and exciting as they are experimental, making for a record that’s worth everyone’s time.

Review
Strange Peace by METZ
AllMusic

It's hard to imagine where METZ can go after pushing their sound and skills into the red zone as they have on Strange Peace, but with their third album, they've left no doubt that they're one of the most singularly powerful rock bands in North America, and you ignore them at your peril.

Review
V by The Horrors
Under The Radar

V could very well be the album that pushes The Horrors to the next echelon, something the group has already accomplished in its native U.K. with its last two albums breaking the top 10 charts. This is an unrealistic expectation Stateside, but V certainly has the chops to propel them up a level or two in the American public's consciousness.

V by The Horrors
AllMusic

While the band's fifth album sounds expectedly stadium-sized, bringing another pair of ears into the fold seems to have pushed the Horrors to make the biggest changes to their music since Primary Colours.

The beauty of The Killers is that you can start at any point. Each album is as good as the last and those that came after it. To that end, Wonderful Wonderful works as a perfect introduction or a delightful continuation.

Music for the Age of Miracles by The Clientele

The bulk of Music for the Age of Miracles is simply evidence that the Clientele can still sound like the Clientele, albeit one tempered and softened by age. This is a pair of old slacks, slipped on for a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Wonderful Wonderful by The Killers

An album without an obvious theme or concept it may be, but somehow, it’s still quintessentially The Killers. It may not be the all-out stadium epic we’ve come to expect from the band but it’s still wonderful (wonderful).

Brick Body Kids Still Daydream by Open Mike Eagle

It serves both as a poignant monument to a community as well as an indictment of how the US government fails African-Americans. Overall, it makes a strong case for itself as Eagle’s most consistently impressive album yet.

Strange Peace by METZ
DIY
It all sounds very METZ and, while the Toronto trio aren’t leaving the sounds of their past two albums behind, they are building on them. In relation to those records, ‘Strange Peace’ is more - more intense, more melodic, more brutal, more confident.
