There are certainly some fantastic standout tracks across Sundara Karma's second effort, but for some reason it's not as enjoyable as their anthemic debut. Maybe it feels like they're trying too hard on some tracks, idk, I think it could grow on me.

7.4/10. Pretty good.

Julia Jacklin is super intimate on 'Crushing', not a large departure from her sound on Don't Let the Kids Win, yet a more emotional effort and overall a more polished sound. It's probably not far from what you'd have expected a Julia Jacklin album to sound like, but it is far from a disappointment.

8/10. Really lovely.

Punchy, powerful and convincing. This marks a shift in sound for Sunflower Bean for the better. While the first two tracks greatly outshine the latter two, this E.P demonstrates that Sunflower Bean are capable of making some top tier indie music.

Standouts: Come for Me, King of the Dudes.

7.5/10. Pretty good.

I was caught off guard by this LP, which has flown right under the radar. Demob Happy pull off some fantastic Queens of the Stone Age influenced, endlessly riffy rock tracks. I don't think there is anything spectacularly unique about it, but I'm in anticipation of where they go from here.

Standouts: Loosen It, Holy Doom

7.1/10. Good.

As a fan of Sweetener, 'thank u, next' comes as a slight disappointment. I don't feel like the album tracks outside the singles have as much individual personality as they do on it's predecessor, but it's still a well-produced, catchy pop record featuring the best vocalist in pop music.

Standouts: imagine, make up

6.1/10. Decent.
