There is a stubborn streak of boldness that boils beneath every facet of Argentine producer-composer Arca’s latest album. Though she has never been interested in a consistency of musical mood or motif, the opener of “Kick i” is a venom-spewing creed hurled at transphobic naysayers while its closer is a gorgeous declaration of love and vulnerability. As opposing as these two emotional forces may be, they are both inherent to Arca’s radical vision of setting herself apart ... read more

Definitely one of the more outstanding mainstream pop singles of the 80's. Both the original cut and the dub mix on SIDE B are ambitiously produced and well-performed. An absolute must for synth-pop fans.

Überzone’s versatility runs deep, culling flavors from international sources, deep dives into turntablism, house-y wobbles and squeaks, vicious breaks, and it brings everything together in a nice fat ... read more

The maximal nature of the album’s first half is quickly betrayed by the second half. From the excellent ... read more

Low-effort and horribly produced MySpace grind in the vein of Me and Him Call It Us or See You Next Tuesday, with a touch of early Daughters and The Chariot. The songs shift from the same chubby breakdown into sudden stops and starts that exhibit nothing other than a lack of ideas. The vocals and drums are on the same plane of awfulness, for the same reason: they have a screechy, plastic, artificial quality to them. It would be easy to overlook if they weren’t both thrown on top of the ... read more

THANKS FOR 75 FOLLOWERS!

I’m taking a break from ratings to focus on reviews. Keep your eyes peeled.

LP’s and EP’s get ratings/reviews. Singles get only reviews.

I will post my vinyl library as a list soon!

I would share my scrobbles by Last.fm is stupid and broken and only registers one-tenth of the songs I listen to 😓 Sowwy
