Black Country, New Road's debut album may have captivated many with its rambling song structures and pretentiously obtuse lyricism, but personally, the novelty of these sprawling songs, and more importantly, the novelty of their lead vocalist, leads to a thinly-spread aesthetic by the album's end. Over six lengthy tracks, the band's MO is clearly presented, but nearly every moment has an unshakeable air of ironically amateurish navel-gazing and trend-hopping. At points, Black Country can borrow ... read more

Westside Gunn had always been the output powerhouse of Griselda Records, and as such, I really wasn't expecting another Conway release so soon after his first solo release (From King to a GOD) and a second collaborative project with Big Ghost Ltd. However, a second helping of that material will always be welcomed, and La Maquina definitely delivers. This relatively trim release concisely hones in on the rapper's strengths, with an incredible first run of tracks up until track 5. 6:30 Tip Off's ... read more

At this point in the group's career, it's difficult to reason why BROCKHAMPTON continues to release new material. With seemingly directionless releases since the unfair extradition of Ameer Vann in 2018, the boyband has faltered at nearly every turn in trying to carve out a similar niche similar to their revolutionary SATURATION trilogy. iridescence was the band's opportunity to lament those issues, but instead felt more like an exciting new beginning for the group. In the years after though, ... read more

Andy Stott's electronic explorations are some of the most exciting musical experiences. Spanning a diverse array of subgenres, his idiosyncratic songs are often elegant, expansive and eclectic, truly finding balance between the heady introspection and contemplation that is more commonly associated with visual art mediums. Andy's discography feels more akin to museum hallways than a Spotify library, and Never the Right Time might just be the closest he has come to creating an auditory ... read more

Ultrapop is an absolute belter of an album. Across 40 short but punchy minutes, The Armed's unique approach to post-hardcore is mesmerising, incorporating elements of pop and digital hardcore that lead to some of the most innovative compositional choices in the genre, echoing Liturgy's dizzying electronic incorporations mixed with the tragic screams of Jeremy Bolm. Drum work courtesy of Urian Hackney and Converge collaborator Ben Koller is most definitely the strongest force carrying the tracks ... read more

Drain Gang production affiliate Woesum's debut album is an interesting listen. With prominent guest features that almost read like a new DG collaborative record (although a confusingly absent ECCO2K), Blue Summer sure did set itself up for success early on, boasting multiple Yung Lean, Bladee and Thaiboy appearances. However, it's quite clear that Woesum himself isn't too unique of a productive force, especially in comparison to Whitearmor, Gud and Sherman, and ultimately Blue Summer keeps ... read more
