The iteration of Fleetwood Mac right before the Buckingham/Nicks era sees the group flirting with pop far more than earlier albums. This is largely due to Christine McVie taking a larger role in the songwriting and overall structure of the album. While it still feels like a collection of people making music rather than a group, hearing these early pop nuggets in Fleetwood Mac's history confirms that McVie is the driving pop force of the group; Lindsay and Stevie were just adding to an already ... read more

The magic that makes OPN sparkle feels particularly dull on this new record. While I am also down for experimentation in his style, this feels more redundant to earlier moments in his career and doesn't necessarily synthesize anything new. I was eager for this record, but I feel like OPN hangs his hat on cinematics and melodrama rather than invention and ingenuity. There are exciting moments, but the album feels a little hollow.

The Weekend has the special place of being my least favorite ... read more

Helena Deland's version of hypnagogic rock music is constantly transforming; songs mutate between amorphous singer-songwriter ballads and cathartic slow rock anthems. Deland carves out her sonic space in similar ways to artists like Julia Jacklin and Gia Margaret. These 'sleep rock' artists (A term Margaret coined to describe her music) explore intimacy through woozy, laid-back rock songs that are in no rush. They are both sleepy in sound and in sentiment, for through this hazy reverie Deland ... read more

This was probably the album I was most hyped for in 2020. Róisín's singles were some of my favorite songs released in the last few years. While I think the album is exceptional, it feels rooted in the past without pushing towards the future. I want to work through this frustration I have with the album by thinking through the disco music explosion this year. 2020 may be a cluster that keeps getting clusterier, but disco has made a loud return to contemporary pop. While there are ... read more

Buch has a way of making spindly electronic songs that worm their way into your head. For me, Skinned sounds like a singer-songwriter's interpretation of James Ferraro's Far Side Virtual. There is a jubilant sense of possibilities that guide Buch's songwriting. The album remains formless throughout, creating a nice cohesion between the subject matter (remote modes of intimacy) and the sound (simplistic, yet emotional electronic melodies). Buch finds new pleasures in digital connections that ... read more

Album covers often get a lot of attention, sometimes more than the music itself but there's one aspect to albums that is very often overlooked: the title. The title often sets the mood and energy of the album, or is memorable enough to stick with you, but seldom gets credit for doing so. Anyways, this leads into a question I have (for a list): what's your favourite album title of all time?
