In Ohms, Deftones have delivered a futuristic masterclass in heavy alt-metal; brutal, gentle, cinematic and beautiful.

It’s a wonderful record. It makes you dance, think, feel wild and gentle, sing and shout and want to change the world whilst embracing everyone you can in a physically socially distanced but mentally very socially attached kind of way.

The overall effect is one of ensuing chaos that leaves you battered, not knowing where the next blow is coming from, but begging for more from the psilocybin psych riot.

To Love Is To Live is a brave and daring album. It would have been considerably safer for Jehnny Beth to hang about in her former band and release Savages III. Instead, she has rolled the dice and come up with a double six. It’s a gamble that has paid off in spades.

Trading off the lo-fi aesthetic of Porridge Radio’s earlier releases for a richer sound, Every Bad feels like the band’s most definitive statement yet. It’s thrilling, expressive, and full of anthems that are ready to set fire to the hearts of a new legion of fans.

RTJ4 is a visceral album pulsing with anger and energy; the world is on fire but thankfully so are Run the Jewels. The duo felt important when they dropped their debut album in 2013, now they feel utterly essential.

Fetch The Bolt Cutters is a remarkable album that couldn’t feel any more timely.

The mysterious Sault has created a powerful, potent protest album that is musically magnificent.

It is almost their ‘Blackstar’… a  contemporary rock album with depth and an emotional pull which few bands can achieve.
