This album has been an unexpected favourite for me this year. I first heard about the band from the Mirrors festival lineup last year, where I unfortunately did not get to check out their set. So when I heard they released an album this year on one of my favourite labels Secretly Canadian, I thought I'd check it out to see what I missed out on and I was blown away. This record is in your face in the best way. It is a raw and bold expression of every chaotic emotion that are often hard to put ... read more

This is hard one for me to talk about. While I adore every Camp Cope project and everything I've heard from Georgia Maq's solo work so far, I feel like this album falls a little bellow the usual standard for her. It isn't the songwriting I take any issue with, in fact I love a lot of these songs and I think Maq's writing lends itself really nicely to pop music. My main issues with this record lie in production and mixing. Bear in mind this is my personal opinion however I feel like there are a ... read more

This is simply put a really fun project. I checked this out having caught a short live set from Hibberd last year and it did not disappoint. Sitting at 4 songs and 13 minuets this is a short EP and I find that to be one of its only flaws. Due to the short run time, I don't feel like there are many common themes or concepts established between the songs and I hope this is something that will feature when we get a full length record. However, that is really where most of my criticism ends. The ... read more

This is a really special album from a really special band. Although not my favourite project from their discography, it certainly has some of their best tracks to date such as 'The Opener' and 'The Face of God' to name a couple. The tight
instrumentals really tie this whole record together and add a feeling of emotional depth that is so essential in making the lyricism even more effective. Kelly-Dawn Hellmrich puts some of the best bass lines I've heard in a long time onto these tracks and the ... read more

I don't really have a rating system going so expect some inconsistencies. I am mainly just here to talk about my favourite records and why I love them. If there's a record you think I will like based off of my reviews/lists or something you'd like me to try and review that I haven't yet, feel free to drop a comment.
