It is the rare political pop record that looks toward the future and offers us something new.

Review
Pitchfork
He’s so dedicated to synthesizing his most obvious influences—channeling Tyler, the Creator and N.E.R.D. down to their throat-clearing ad-libs and neo-New Jack funk—that he hasn’t quite established an identity of his own. That failing doesn’t dull the jams or diminish his evident potential, but it does hold him back.

Ephorize ... is ultimate profanity, a means by which radical self-love and radical inclusion can be realized to their fullest.

Despite Shame’s lyrical foibles, they evince a prodigious adeptness for musicianship, and though Songs of Praise isn’t the most arresting debut by a garage band, there are far worse places to start.

Review
Northern Transmissions
Through punchy guitars and lyricism that straddles poignant and cheeky, the album presses all the right buttons to give a snapshot of where we are right now.

Review
The 405
What a Time to Be Alive is a minor miracle in that it provides an escape while acknowledging the depths of how fucked we are. It’s a hurricane of pop-punk fury with as much ferocity as anything the band recorded 25+ years ago.

Review
The 405
Sir occasionally works as an aggregate of flattering bric-a-brac and is irrepressibly sexy, but when its production’s skin-deep charm peels away there’s little to compel a return.

Review
PopMatters
Four albums later, Fischerspooner have proven they are anything but a one-hit wonder. Only time will tell if those few dazzling tracks on Sir are an isolated accident or a foretaste of greater things to come.

GIGsoup

The lyrics are meaningful and the music behind the words is thoughtful, planned and gives evidence to the band’s skills. This release has a positive vibe even though the lyrics are bleak. ‘Entertainment’ is pure entertainment and is truly amusing.

Review
The Observer

Russell frustratingly holds back ... from any meaningfully esoteric or challenging music on Everything Is Recorded. None of this music looks into the void and holds its gaze.

Review
The Line of Best Fit

Although he may be the keystone that holds this record together, Russell seems more comfortable behind the boards, letting the talents of his collaborators take centre stage.

Northern Transmissions

Bringing along friends like Sampha, Ibeyi, Kamasi Washington, Syd and even Peter Gabriel among others this album, while definitely more of a collection than cohesive record, is one that will really surprise you.

Everything Is Recorded by Richard Russell is a moving, beautiful album that offers community as a cure for loneliness. Even if at times he's somewhat overshadowed by his collaborators, Russell manages to have his voice shine through.

The LA trio’s second album finds them adding a bittersweet edge to their fusion of retro pop styles.

Review
The Observer

This album was born as a song cycle about relationships. On that count, Harry Styles doesn’t disappoint – even if, overall, you wish this album rocked its innovations harder.

Molly Rankin’s pipes are pure 60s pop on Not My Baby, and her songwriting wit sparkles throughout this nuanced break-up album.

Review
The Observer

Pitch-shifted into a pervading mood of menace, Dreijer’s vocals grapple with sex and relationships, with political engagement never far away. Her electronics, meanwhile, are unrelentingly engaging, never just hitting presets.

Rainbow is both stranger and more normal than you expect; uneven – does Kesha really rhyme “highway” with “Hyundai”? – but likable.

Review
The Observer

The result is not “QOTSA go pop”, but Ronson’s fresh ears do bring out the playfulness in their mean and muscular, feline and sensual sound, adding an extra-rubbery bounce to their rhythms.

Review
Consequence of Sound

While Phantom Thread may offer the most straight-forward narrative of Anderson’s career, Greenwood gives listeners a reason to keep digging, thus furthering the life of a film that questions the importance of legacy and what ultimately lasts. In the case of Greenwood and Anderson’s partnership, hopefully they’ve only just begun to establish their legacy together.
