Following the less than lukewarm response of her previous album Witness, Katy Perry returns with a record even weaker but for the complete opposite reasons. While Witness was at least somewhat daring, Smile is painfully predictable. The themes and lyrics are something of a broken record, with the same ‘I overcame the difficult times’ archetype becoming a tedious cliché. Although passable, the inability to evoke anything other than boredom and frustration renders this record ... read more

Microphones in 2020 is not just an album consisting of one sprawling song; it is a trajectory through the life and career of Phil Elverum. A musical autobiography of sorts. Elverum crams 25 years worth of pain, growth and triumph into a 44 minute project, often reminiscing on such events in very personal detail. Like a flowing stream of consciousness, the subject matter at hand is something of a retrospective, heaving with nostalgia.

Despite its synthetic elements, MyData is transcendental and brimming with sentimentality.

Although arguably her most ‘pop’ based record to date, KiCk i still shines as an experimental endeavour into abrasive and textured glitch-dance. KiCk may lack focus in comparison to her previous works, but the vastness of KiCk’s sheer eccentricity sprawls far and wide. Taking influences from Latin pop and post-club, as well as boasting collaborations with the likes of Björk and ... read more
