Willis Earl Beal - Principles of a Protagonist
October 3, 2012
Critic Score
79
1 review

Given that these are re-recordings it’s difficult to deem them instant classics, but with Beal’s ideological shift its hard to ignore the fact that these are songs that have finally achieved their full potential.

Daniel Rossen - Silent Hour / Golden Mile
March 20, 2012
Critic Score
78
16 reviews

I believe it’s important for everyone to know the capabilities of this ultra-talented songwriter, and on this EP he does a damn good job showing it off by himself.

The Antlers - Undersea
July 24, 2012
Critic Score

14 reviews

If Undersea does indeed signify the beginning of a new chapter for The Antlers, it’s pretty great so far.

TNGHT - TNGHT
July 24, 2012
Critic Score
77
15 reviews

TNGHT may clock in at under 16 minutes, but it’s the most satisfying quarter-hour blast you’ll hear this year.

2.

Disclosure - The Face
June 4, 2012
Critic Score
74
6 reviews

The Face is a complete statement that overloads all possible cylinders

1.

Burial - Kindred
February 12, 2012
Critic Score
85
18 reviews

It’s as much of a technical, puzzle-piece spider-web as it is an emotionally exhausting workout.
