Rina Sawayama - Hold The Girl
90
FAVORITE TRACK: Your Age

LEAST FAVORITE TRACK: It would be Phantom if it didn't have that guitar solo so I don't know

I think traditional pop is dead. Pop stars are a thing of the past. There are no pop girlies like Britney and Christina and Rihanna anymore, rather switching out for an alternative type like Billie Eilish and Lana Del Rey or a personal type like Olivia Rodrigo. Not that it's a bad thing to move into a new direction, it just feels like pop dramatics are a thing of the past. ... read more

Alex G - God Save the Animals
94
FAVORITE TRACK: Forgive

LEAST FAVORITE TRACK: Immunity

Alex G threw it back to Blessing of course this album is getting a high rating from me.

God Save the Animals mixes indie folk with electronic and experimental noise. It's a sound spotted on Rocket and House of Sugar, but this album is the furthest exploration of it. Blessing combines this aggressive guitar and those weird "UNHS" and a whimsical piano to create what might actually be a perfect song. Tracks like After All and No ... read more

Jockstrap - I Love You Jennifer B
98
FAVORITE TRACK: Greatest Hits

LEAST FAVORITE TRACK: None

I Love You Jennifer B will go down in history as one of the best debut albums of all time. This is a beyond impressive art pop creation. Every song on this album is experimental, sexy and incredibly enticing. Jockstrap brings a creative element to pop music that is so fun and new that it would take other artists years to create.

Georgia Ellery is unbelievable on this album. Her vocals are wonderful on Greatest Hits and What's It All ... read more

The Garden - Horseshit on Route 66
88
FAVORITE TRACK: OC93

LEAST FAVORITE TRACK: What Else Could I Be But a Jester

This is really impressive. The Garden is the coolest, man. Always doing their own thing and being successful at it. Horseshit on Route 66 takes the punk roots the duo has been planting since the beginning of their career and creating something hardcore, fast-paced, weird and exciting for this album.

Horseshit on Route 66 is an intense and loud punk album. The intensity of Puerta de Limosina and Freight Yard right ... read more

Mo Troper - MTV
72
FAVORITE TRACK: Royal Jelly

LEAST FAVORITE TRACK: Final Lap

Mo Troper is a lofi/indie rock artist who's always been on my radar due to his relation to Slaughter Beach, Dog, Camp Trash and other acts of the sort. MTV is a messy record that is all over the place but does have charm.

MTV is a messy listen. It bounces from noisy lofi to acoustic indie to this Bob Dylan-like rock. The more acoustic stuff like I Fall Into Her Arms, Play Dumb, Across the USA and Under My Skin is the most ... read more

Horsegirl - Versions of Modern Performance
89
FAVORITE TRACK: Anti-glory

LEAST FAVORITE TRACK: Electrolocation 2

I saw Horsegirl open for Black Country, New Road in New York last night and they were great! I've enjoyed what I've heard from the group until now, but their performance gave me incentive to listen.

Horsegirl is a fresh of breath air. Versions of Modern Performance focuses on a solid vocal performance that is completely enhanced by incredible punk and shoegaze instrumentals. A lot of indie groups now, I feel, are lacking one ... read more

Hello, I am a student doing a Master’s Degree and I am doing a thesis based on people who post online music reviews. I would like to talk to you about your activity on this website. Would you be interested to have a little chat with me ? If yes, I have a few questions to ask you. It won’t take you a lot of time, and it could help me successfully complete my thesis and pass my school year. thanks!
