This is what I wish modern Muse sounded like: tasteful pomp

I don’t have too much to say. I feel like I wasn’t quite floored to the degree that some of my friends on here have been, but All Mirrors definitely deserves high praise. So many artists in modern indie seem content to stay in their lane with either straightforward and loud garage or laid back slow jams, so it’s refreshing to hear an established indie rock name like Olsen embrace something much more grandiose.

uknowhatimsayin is the easiest Danny Brown album to listen to by far, but that don't let that distract from just how creative it can be, whether that's with Danny's trademark sense of humor and delivery or the wacky production. At its best (which it's often at), this thing is an all-killer, no-filler exercise in slick hip hop showmanship. The production is top notch, and the delivery from everyone feels consistently effortless. Never before has the word "smooth" come to mind when ... read more

EDITED: some heavy personal stuff; just a warning

Here I am typing this up when I should be typing up a Literature essay... Typical me.

I'm honestly amazed. I was surprised to hear we would be getting another Nick Cave album so soon (?) after Skeleton Tree. Honestly, I wouldn't have been too surprised to hear that was to be he and the Bad Seeds' last. However, Ghosteen is here, and it's nothing short of stunning. It picks up right where Skeleton Tree left off in its bare and haunting ... read more

As a recovering Floridian, the sleazy, rundown neon sign-lit vibe that Alex Cameron brings to the table is spot on for a record called “Miami Memory.” The man’s lyricism is as ridiculously scummy as ever, telling tales of romance that would be heartbreaking if the narrator didn’t deserve every bit of the pain, and the fact that I’ve had to stop myself from singing “I ate your ass like an oyster” MULTIPLE TIMES is a testament to how sticky the hooks can ... read more

While not on the same level of mindfuckery as A Laughing Death in Meatspace, I’m pleased with the slow burn approach Gareth and the gals took on Braindrops. It’s still delightfully strange and unsettling, but the songs creep up and drain your being instead of just painting the wall with the blood from your bashed-in skull. Paradise and Happiest Guy Around aside, this is a much more subdued and atmospheric version of TFS. While it isn’t some massive shake-up it rides a nice ... read more

INITIAL THOUGHTS: This is definitely the most I’ve had to think about a BROCKHAMPTON record. I’ve heard GINGER twice now back to back and I’m not exactly sure what to make of it. There are moments on here that are certainly nothing short of beautiful, but the tracklist is a little messy and sometimes I feel like I’m processing everything in a daze (perhaps it’s important to recognize that it’s nearly 1 in the morning and I’ve been doing history work for ... read more

The latest from Oh Sees may be one of the more frustrating listens of the year. I think songs like Poisoned Stones and Scutum & Scorpius are among the group’s strongest tracks, especially with the former’s style of kraut rock by way of some dude’s garage. However, it takes a good twenty minutes for the album to really warm up for me personally, and that really puts a damper on Face Stabber’s momentum. Add to that an hour and twenty minute tracklist with more than a ... read more

INFEST THE RATS’ NEST is a deformed monstrosity that’s dripping with gasoline from head to toe, and it is every bit as awe-inspiring as it is horrific.

I’ve been wanting King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard to do a metal album ever since I had gotten into them, and INFEST THE RATS’ NEST hardly disappoints. The album never lets up for a second with its head-banging ferocity, and the band inject each song with just the right amount of camp and old-school metal worship to ... read more

American Water seems effortless in a way few albums manage. It’s not that it sounds like no work was put into the record, but rather, that everything fits together so naturally that nothing feels rigidly structured or overthought. Compared to the weariness that Berman’s words consistently and beautifully convey, this notion is ironic, but it’s one I can’t escape. The way that the carefree melodies partner with the rare kind of lyrics that could so easily stand as poetry ... read more
