Welfare Jazz es un despliegue de la personalidad excéntrica y sociopolítica de Viagra Boys, sin embargo como efecto secundario el viaje tiene bajonazos intermitentes.

La navidad del 2020 se tiñe de rojo, que eso signifique una bendición o una maldición es algo que Playboi Carti no deja claro en Whole Lotta Red.

What's 2 + 2? 4... Oh you already knew that? Well in that case if you've heard an album by The Killers before then you already know how this one goes too...

Say goodbye to lovely guitarrist Dave Keuning and say hello to some kind of return to the Day & Age synthesizers in this new album of The Killers: Imploding the Mirage. An LP that has some of the most beautifully accomplished sounds in their careers and some of the most meh things that they've put out. Of course there's no need to be ... read more

Can we have sex while listening to this... please? This is a 5 star lobby experience, Jessie Ware gives it her all with this new disco pop direction while releasing some of the best thematic songwriting she's ever done.

Sometimes I wonder when is enough for an album to beat up a sound track after track, but rarely there's the occasion where I'm so fully into it that I just want it to keep going and going, gladly Jessie Ware was so enamoured with disco that she exploded all of her abilites and ... read more

Omg, Taylor is going Metal? No? Well that's unfortunate... oh wait, she's folk now? That could be interesting, let's hope it's not just pop disguised as folk... Seems at least different.

These songs feel more adult, maybe that's why so many people are imrpessed because even if her catalogue is pretty catchy, at times it can pass as childish in terms of production mostly, because on the lyric department she usually shows more depth, that's why so manu people are impressed with folklore, but is ... read more

Just when you though that Four Tet was going into a paradise full of ambient masterpieces, he proves that this shift of sound is something that he still needs to master by miles.

I wouldn't say Four Tet or Kieran Hebden, whatever way you wanna call him, is a producer that doesn't take any risk, he seems to always experiment with pretty weird landscapes, but what makes him stand out it's his ability to blend this samples so well that you end up dancing, is that kind of artist that doesn't need ... read more

I guess I could show my friends this before Death Grips, right?

Machine Girl have all my respect for starting their career with some of the most out there sound and production I've heard of the last decade, their first albums weren't perfect nor fully realized but at least they showed a lot of potential for giving such blood spilling work with their crazy aesthetic and samples from the japanese movie of the same name, totally weird but acceptable in a world where everybody can do whatever they ... read more

Set My Heart on Fire Immediately runs like rotten honey, an oxymoron that balances out thanks to Hadreas' beautiful songwriting and melodies, while bringing out an evolution into a country, shoegaze and chamber pop production.

Mike Hadreas always has a heartbreaking but captivating sound into all of his projects, his last effort, No Shape, demostrated how much he can shfit between music palettes like baroque pop, chamber pop and dream pop, it transported us to an era of opulence and ballroom ... read more

R.A.P. Ferreira puts the focus back on the poetry of a song, after all the rap and the verses have always been on its constitution a fruitful fountain of language beauty.

I didn't know Milo decided to change his stage name, however it seems very properly for this new era of him, while he's always played with the jazz instrumentation, the old samples and some hypnagogic production, this is probably the most outgoing I've heard him, also he's so fully into the poetry of it all that you can ... read more

For being such an interesting mix of well-recognized death metal artists, Shadow of Life is really an underwhelming and dated take on the genre.

I've always had this problem with metal albums, they are rather very amazing and full of textures or they are pretty repetitive and relay on the agressiveness rather than quality songwriting. Sometimes I feel like I'm listening to the same band over and over again due to having such limits under the sound spectrum when it comes to the genre, but I've ... read more

Cute as hell and addicting as top 40 pop shit.

Black Dresses consist of the duo of Ada Rook and Devi McCallion, both have been very interested in the dark places contrasted with some pretty white lights, in other words, they like to mess up with people and confuse them with their music, sadly this is their last album after their decission to end the band, however maybe they will get back together after everything has calmed down. Peaceful As Hell presents us a candy filled field with so much ... read more

Semper Femina is no longer my favorite album of Laura Marling and that couldn't make me happier.

The poetry that always came from Marling's mouth in her music made me fall in love with her, she maybe wasn't the most compelling artist when it came to the production but her voice packed such a punch that I couldn't stop paying attention to everything she put out, specially since she has always talked in the role of women in this century but also maintaing a versatile approach to the stories she ... read more

Nicolas Jaar second album released on this 2020 has some of the most creepy and uncomfortable landscapes I've heard this year, but at the same time the most complex, beautiful and fulfilling ones since his work on Space Is Only Noise.

This has been an incredible year for Nicolas Jaar on the field music, not only did he return under his moniker Against All Logic with a fantastic album filled with great house bangers and lots of flavor, but now he releases another LP that expands even more his ... read more

Party on the bedroom and tears on the pillow collide into Charli XCX's new project, a reflection on the solitude, nostalgia and existence of the millenial heart in middle of the quarantine.

Even though I freaking loved Charli's last project I was a bit hesitant with this one because I thought, shit it's too early, it hasn't been even a year since the release of her self-titled project and now we got another one, she said she wanted this to be kind of a historic memory in a moment so poignant ... read more

And again, Thundercat has all the elements to capture your soul with his incredible display of witty instrumentals and soothing vocals, the problem is the results are mixed.

I has always been on the fence when it comes to Thundercat's experiments with lenght of the tracks, sometimes he focuses on giving you songs that are so fully packed of textures, rhythims and speed within just one minute, and other times he gives tracks of almost four minutes that are a bit more slowburners and take its ... read more

Intersectionality, identity crisis, family issues, fallen out relationships and the confidence of being an empowered woman come from the fantastic and versatile SAWAYAMA, by far the best pop album of the year with no regrets.

Rina Sawayama took the world by storm with the release of her RINA EP, not only thanks to Mr. Fantano it got the recognition and spotlight it deserved, but I must admit that I wasn't gaga for it like everybody else, even if it had the inventive and early 2000's Britney ... read more

Love is the answer but also a drug that can lead into a sick obsession, that's the heaven of a tortured mind according to Yves Tumor, an album that not only deals with a more loving and heartwarming voice but also strenghtens the singer cohesive effort.

As a hyped album, Heaven to a Tortured Mind finds its light when it comes to its tasteful production filled with experimental landscapes with soft drums, then grand and explosive trumpets and distorted basses, it's a nice followup to all of the ... read more

Meghan Remy comes forward with a project that feels like a spotlight to all of those voices that are overlooked one time and again, however even if the concept it's ambitious and presents decents melodies it leaves a lot to be desired in the production department.

Heavy Light sounds like the amalgamation of american citizens coming with an statement, something that it's everywhere and everybody knows but at the same time the country loves to get censored: they're a country of immigrants, all ... read more

The Strokes left a stamp on alternative rock on the early 2000's and now they're reminding everyone at the beggining of this decade that they still got it.

When I found myself revisiting the band early works I can see why some people feel Is This Is and Room on Fire haven't aged that well, these albums were needed at the moment where other sounds were completely taking over the charts and genres like rap-metal were beaten to death (just ask someone and they'll probably tell you that they used ... read more

Well outta of nowhere Empress Of releases her third LP and I'm all here for it, even if a times it feels like this was a project that had a lot of things to refine before it saw the light.

I've been a fan of Lorely Rodriguez since she got out her debut album, Me, which to me is one of the best pop records of 2015, an album that showcased all of her talent as a producer, her beautiful eerie and mysterious voice infused with some 80's synths and super strong drums that just fulfilled the air ... read more
