Atrocity Exhibition by Danny Brown
The Line of Best Fit

Rich, deep, full of wit, rapid fire lyrics and fantastically unusual production, it’s Danny Brown proving yet again that he is one of the most exciting rappers working right now.

Review
Campaign by Ty Dolla $ign
Pretty Much Amazing

In the end, Campaign is true to its name: It’s appropriate of the time, full of filler, and runs just a bit too long. It’s not polished, but neither was any other campaign in 2016.

Natural Causes by Skylar Grey
AllMusic

Natural Causes is comforting and luscious, the sound of an artist coming into her own.

Review
Shape Shift With Me by Against Me!
Tiny Mix Tapes

Some of the hyper-syllabic loose-lyric delivery of “Norse Truth” drags baggy, some of the mixed political/personal imagery of “Suicide Bomber” bogs down what the song wants. Like want and love and bodies, songs won’t always feel good.

Review
Head Carrier by Pixies
Consequence of Sound

There’s still more Cindy than Surfer Rosa here, but it seems like they’re now inching towards being the best version of today’s Pixies rather than a diluted version of yesterday’s — a welcome step.

Review
A Corpse Wired For Sound by Merchandise
Pitchfork
If Merchandise weren't a rock band before, they certainly are now. They've gotten a little more earnest and shoot for a bigger sound. It's a mixed bag, but it's hard to hate them for it.

Review
Head Carrier by Pixies
The Line of Best Fit

If the wandering hodgepodge of 2014’s Indie Cindy hinted at the band’s final metamorphosis as a mostly by-numbers proposition, Head Carrier essentially – sadly – confirms it.

Review
Head Carrier by Pixies
Loud and Quiet

‘Head Carrier’ pulls together the group’s experiments with surf pop, country, hard rock and noise to create an album that is something approaching a greatest hits, at least in stylistic terms.

Review
Head Carrier by Pixies
The Skinny

There’s not enough adventure to make this truly feel like Pixies; it lacks the sense that the wheels might come off any minute.

Review
Head Carrier by Pixies
Under The Radar

Songs stray so far from the raw energy of Surfer Rosa that Head Carrier could easily be mistaken for any number of hair-product soaked '80s metal, inhabiting, at least musically, all of the grotesque trends Pixies originally bucked.

Review
Head Carrier by Pixies
Drowned in Sound

While Head Carrier may right some of the wrongs of Indie Cindy, it still remains a distinctly average affair from a band once considered the best band on the planet. Too often this sounds like a younger band's best impression of Pixies, or worse, a parody of themselves.

Head Carrier by Pixies

Ape in Pink Marble by Devendra Banhart
Pitchfork

Ape shares Mala’s wispy, low-stakes coziness. Despite the chilled-out atmosphere, however, Ape is a much darker listen, and its best moments are a reminder of why Banhart touched a nerve in the first place.

Ape in Pink Marble by Devendra Banhart

Ape In Pink Marble may not quite measure up in quality to Mala, but it is definitely a fruitful album by one of the most respected musicians in the business.

Review
and the Anonymous Nobody... by De La Soul
Pretty Much Amazing

It’s their most musically ambitious record ever and their best since Buhloone Mind State way back in ’93, eclectic with the beats and gnomic with the wit, and it serves as a heartening rejoinder to the emotional and intellectual thinness of most of even the best current hip-hop.

Review
and the Anonymous Nobody... by De La Soul
No Ripcord

It’s a good comeback for De La Soul, and there’s plenty to really enjoy here, but there are too many occasions where tracks loiter for too long, not outstaying their welcome as such, just not doing a great deal with it.

Review
I Had A Dream That You Were Mine by Hamilton Leithauser + Rostam
Clash

It’s a collaboration that works as there’s a sense of longing for the past from both parties, be it lyrically throughout from Leithauser, or musically in the retro styling brought by Rostam. A solid debut then, full of yearning and barstool tales.

Review
The Healing Component by Mick Jenkins
Consequence of Sound

The production ranges from icy to neon. And yet these tracks all clearly feel cut from a single cloth. The Healing Component evolves Jenkins’ worldview boldly, keeping his messages easy to digest but bursting with meaning.

Blood Bitch by Jenny Hval
Loud and Quiet

Part of the beauty of what Hval does is the way her art takes you to a place you didn’t know existed, but in a way where you don’t notice the journey.

Blood Bitch by Jenny Hval

Hval’s latest is a complex, disarming listen that delves into new, foundry-pushing territory with the enthusiasm of an overzealous Pokemon Go player exploring new corners of the neighbourhood.

22, A Million by Bon Iver

This is a febrile folktronica album which confounds and astounds in equal measure, melting your heart one minute and agitating your eardrums the next, but always baffling and beautiful.

Review
22, A Million by Bon Iver
Clash
Yes, ‘22, A Million’ is painfully, painfully sincere. Yes, it’s also hopelessly oblique, grandiose, and pretentious. Yet it’s also an absolute diamond of a record, at once fragrantly beautifully and also hopelessly complex, easy to disregard and yet thoroughly hypnotic.
