Rips actually ends up adding to her reputation precisely because she performs like she’s got nothing left to prove or lose with it.

It’s another strong record from the band, one that pushes forward in interesting ways while still staying rooted in Spoon’s signature sound.

2. Future Islands - Singles

Future Islands - Singles

By the end of Singles, not only are these not singles, they aren’t even the strong Future Islands songs from previous records.

1. Wild Beasts - Present Tense

Wild Beasts - Present Tense

That cohesion, the way Wild Beasts can’t seem to play a bum note or place a single syllable in the wrong verse, makes Present Tense one of the most quietly exhilarating albums in recent memory, and all the more so for using its evocative power to unsettle and seduce in equal measure.
