A fun little EP from an upcoming indie artist. She Plays Bass and I Wish I Was Stephen Malkmus are great singles that will make my best of the year playlist.

The rock band that the 2010s deserved but no one gave enough attention to is back!

White Reaper has been dropping underappreciated masterpieces for the past few years. White Reaper Does it Again and The Worlds' Best American Band were both really exciting and fun albums. I loved the punk vintage sound that they were able to create and master.

You Deserve Love finds the band at a bit more radio friendly sound and a bit sharper, clean guitar playing. Unfortunately this isn't really in the ... read more

Caroline Polachek is one of the last people I had expected to hear from in 2019. I turned on the radio one day and heard her unmistakable voice on her single Door and I immediately looked up to see if she would drop an album eventually. Lucky for me, the day finally came and here I am reviewing the singer from one of my favorite former indie pop bands in recent history.

I usually revisit albums when I review them or at least give it my full undivided attention. I can't convince myself to listen to Culture II again. It is way too long, way too mediocre, and SO FUCKING BORING. The singles on this aren't even that good except for Narcos. I'm just gonna go back to listening to the first Culture.

Best Track(s): Narcos, Stir Fry (it is VERY okay)
Worst Track(s): Walk it Talk It, Emoji a Chain... I can't even differ songs from another they all were hopelessly boring

There's nothing really wrong with this record per say, but it just falls flat a bit too often. There's a few key singles on here like Knock Me Off My Feet and I Was Blue, Technicolour Too that are pretty well made alt-pop singles, but other than that Grim Town disappointed me.

Best Track(s): Knock Me Off My Feet*, Everybody Loves You, I Was Blue, Technicolour Too, Deja Vu
Worst Track(s): Ybftbyt, Valentine Shmalentine
