Mike Hadreas's second album under the Perfume Genius moniker is simply one of the most beautiful records I've ever heard. Put Your Back N 2 It is an extremely measured, stripped-back album that highlights Hadreas's passion and unique songwriting style. The songs on Put Your Back N 2 It are characteristically brief, occasionally not passing the two minute mark. But Mike manages to gather all of his emotions and wrangle them into these small packages, resulting in a number of extremely ... read more

Perfume Genius's fourth album is his most instrumentally detailed, most unabashedly grandiose, and one of his best, too.

Iceage's epic third album stands as the band's artistic peak, and one one of the finest rock records of the 2010s, hands down. The former hardcore punks show incredible ambition on this album, as Plowing Into the Field of Love is nearly twice the length of either of their first two albums.

As depressing and emotionally turbulent as it is artful and dramatic, Plowing... shows that Iceage's strengths extend far beyond the blistering noise rock of 2011's New Brigade and 2013's You're Nothing, ... read more

One of my favorite albums of 2018 for sure. Iceage forego nearly all of their noise rock and hardcore punk roots and continue their bold embrace of the more gothic side of post-punk on Beyondless. The production is decked out with bright concoctions of gnarled guitars and lush strings, the performances are great, and the majority of the songs are pretty fantastic. On their fourth album, Iceage remains one of the most captivating bands in modern rock music.
