(DOLCH) - Nacht
77
Nacht lives up to it's title, exuding a nocturnal soundscape, full of secrets and sensuality

Standouts: Lights Out, Open, Tonight, I am OK, House Of Glass

Dropouts: Ghost

Gold - This Shame Should Not Be Mine
84
A striking blend of gothic industrial with a metal tinge and ethereal vocals. Full of pain and power

Standouts: Strawberry Supper, Like Magic, Spring, Invisible, I Won't Let You Down, Notes on How to Trust
This Shame Should Not Be Mine, Beat by Beat

Dropouts: none

FLOOR CRY - Slasher Flick
75
Soft sultry vocals over chilled electropop, perfect for late nights but maybe a little too one note overall. Definitely doesn't make me think of a slasher flick though.

Standouts: Slasher Flick, Next Best Thing, Fleeting, Answers

Dropouts: If U Got A Problem

Swiss Portrait - The Crippling Pain of Happiness
78
Sweet and slightly woozy bedroom shoegaze. Starts off strong but just is a little too same sounding throughout.

Standouts: Before, Paper Houses, Always, Lost

Dropouts: none

Kristin Hersh - Clear Pond Road
74
A dark and somber affair. While the album definitely picks up towards the end, it has the bite but lacks the contagious energy of Throwing Muses' best.

Standouts: Tunnels, Reflections on the Motive Power, Eyeshine

Dropouts: Thank You, Corner Blight
