I saw these guys live back in May and their performance intrigued and excited me. They played intense, loud and throttling post-punk music and their presence on-stage was unmatchable by the other two acts. This made me want to check out their stuff!
This EP is all killer and no filler. Beginning with the track that goes harder than anything else I've heard in 2019, Jealous. The energy of this song is utterly explosive; blaring guitars and pounding drums crashing down on you in the space of ... read more

Parquet Courts have always been on my radar, and with an overwhelmingly positive review from melon, this was a great place to start!
In short, I loved this project. The grooves are infectious, the vocals have loads of presence, the tracks are diverse and the lyrics are clever and introspective.

Some of my favourite moments on this album ... read more

As someone who is pretty new to hip-hop as a genre, Veteran was a strange place to start, but I'm very glad I gave this album a try. I mainly listened to this in anticipation for the new record, and I can safely say I prefer this one by a mile. On first listens it's hard to keep track of all the beat changes and switch ups on here as one track glitches and transports into the next. Moments on here are downright insane and I'm overall really impressed by how versatile Peggy is on this project in ... read more

Oh Sees have outdone themselves once again! After the slightly mediocre 'Smote Reverser', I was really rooting for the band to get back on track and release something as good as Orc, and what a surprise, they've done it. I'm so invested in this weird and jammy point of the Oh Sees' career. The lengthy tracks on here lock you in and don't let you go, and never get boring for me!

Aside from a very promising opening track, 'build a rocket boys' is too soft and uneventful for its own good. There are barely any moments on this record that interest me in the slightest aside from 'the birds' (which is one of the best Elbow tracks put to tape). The rest just feels very bland and uninteresting.

Best Tracks: The Birds, Lippy Kids, Jesus Is A Rochdale Girl
Weakest Track: Neat Little Rows
