King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard - The Silver Cord
75
This is an all or nothing LP. You're getting getting short and sharp 30-minute romp or an hour and a half odyssey. For me, I am going to say that Disc 2 is the real album and be focusing on that. And good thing I am, because it is pretty solid. Lately, I have really felt Gizz are starting to bore me. But The Silver Cord is really something different. Driven by electronics and synth, The Silver Cord is head-spin, and at times and it gets a little weary. A few blank parts here and there ... read more
ANOHNI and the Johnsons - My Back Was A Bridge For You To Cross
88
For such serene music, there is a lot of anger in this album. Born out of today's crumbling political climate, where queer people have become scapegoats and we continue to destroy this planet despite all the warmings. My Back Was A Bridge For You To Cross is a fantastic expression of anger. What I think is most impressive about this album is how almost back to basics a lot of it is. These songs aren't overly complex. They are simple , and that's the beauty. All most of these tracks need to saw ... read more
Ana Frango El├ętrico - Me Chama de Gato Que Eu Sou Sua
78
Sometimes, the songs just have to slap. Sometimes, a good groove is all you need. Me Chama de Gate Que Eu Sou Sua is a wonderful little record. Funky, well-produced and simple, this album is inoffensive, yes, but it doesn't need to be anything more. I will say, I found the middle stretch of the record a little slow in parts, and I wish that there was little more variety. I mean there isn't too much to say negatively about this record apart from that. Ana's voice is expressive, the musicianship ... read more
Kevin Abstract - Blanket
58
I think that this album has some genuinely good qualities. Atmosphere for me is the best thing that going on here. Each track has an intimate, mournful, coming-of-age vibe. But the biggest issue though is that most of these tracks are severely undercooked. Before so many of these vignettes get a chance to flourish. The fully formed songs here are actually quite good, but they're few and far between. I think the switch to indie rock isn't terrible, and with some work could actually be something ... read more
Spiritual Cramp - Spiritual Cramp
60
After seeing some hype and positive early reception. I thought I may as well check this record out. And to be honest I can't say I was overly impressed. Its fine. Loud riffs, punk rock vocals and good energy, but other than that this really doesn't seem all it to me. There isn't too much to say about this album because honestly there isn't too much here. I don't think this is bad, but the lightest 6 possible is probably the correct score.

Best track- Blowback
