The album does what it says on the can! There are a good amount of psychedelic sounds here, such as the rippling sound effects that pop up every now and then. Lead singer Roky Erickson often addresses ‘you’ throughout the album, whether he’s addressing the stressful situations through your head in “Reverberation” or telling you not to take your lover for granted in “Don’t Fall Down”. There’s even a blues rock cut in “Fire ... read more

Another Gizz album this year already? Okay!
For this project, King Gizzard lean towards the calmer side of their sound and add some synths to go with it, as well as the occasional flute mellotron to emphasise the psychedelic vibe.

Sons Of Kemet are back with an album full of jazz power, most of which is carried by the saxophone and the tuba.

Fave Tracks: "Hustle"; "For The Culture": "Let The Circle Be Unbroken"

My first time listening to a Twenty One Pilots album and I've got to say, this was quite the sublime listening experience. Their music seems to tackle mental health, isolation and conformity, and this is evident on songs like "Choker" and "The Outside".

Fave Tracks: "The Outside"; "Never Take It"; "Shy Away"
