The fact that the skips in this are accidental is insane. Well, at least they've built so much around an accident that it sounds completely intentional, despite evidence to the contrary. The vocals that shine in and out on this are light and ethereal, a sample from a Bollywood film that works so well here. The group says it's haunting and melancholic, I found it warm. The beat under it could sound harsh under different mixing, but it holds back in certain places enough to keep it interesting. ... read more

Gorgeous, almost too happy for its own good, and maybe the happiest The Antlers has been since ITAOTU, my favorite album from the group. The one chord it builds over and over again is hypnotic, the falsetto vocals almost perfect, and the timbre of the guitar is so pretty. It's warm. I can't wait for this album.

What So Not remixing a song and it actually being good? January 2021 still manages to surprise me.
I really don't like What So Not as a composer, at least so far as it's been running without Flume. Not All the Beautiful Things didn't have a single good thing about it. But color me surprised when not only do they remix one of the best songs off of RTJ4, but it's actually still a great song that only gets touched up as much as necessary?
The song is almost too similar to the original, still ... read more

I didn't expect to hear vocals as clean as this in a Ruins of Beverast song, but sure why not. Pretty good doom metal that's more rougher around the edges in terms of atmosphere than Exuvia was, and I'm not convinced by some of these riffs as they sound less interesting, but this is still pretty solid.

I haven't seen Euphoria so I don't honestly know the exact context of when this would play in the show (looking it up it seems to be in a scene for a special episode? Also should I watch this show?), but outside of that context I think the song is delightful with a few very underwhelming parts. FINNEAS brings a very deep space with nice sparse percussion that barely beat over the solos of the song, while Rosalia brings the better performance before the end with her incredible vocals, good use ... read more

Hello, I love your album reviews.
My new EP, a very short one has just released. Will be grateful if you listen and review it. I need honest review, it could be harsh but I want to know what people thinks and how can I improve. There's is some Hindi Lyrics (very few) but the 90% of the album is English. Attaching the AOTY and Spotify link. Will be grateful forever if you respond. 🙏🙏

Hello friend, I hope you're having a great day! If you have any interest in participating in a list I'm making, here's the prompt:

Aliens have come down from a previously unknown planet, and touch down right in front of your house. You come outside, and they speak English somehow, but they ask you for one thing- to give them a human album. You have an MP3 player, but it only can hold one album of any length. You can give the aliens any album for any reason, but please explain why you chose the album you chose.

Thank you for answering (if you do), and have a great day!

Is there a specific artist or album that you love but it is not well known at all?

Hey, I'm Tatsky. Despite spending a lot of time in music, my reviews will read like nothing but really personal statements. Otherwise, I compose, listen to, and try to review music. I also work in radio and play piano and do vocal shit.

I also make playlists for uni radio, OWL Radio! I make the "Month in Highlights" playlists. Check them out in the website link below!



Also ACAB and BlackLivesMatter. If you're "BlueLivesMatter" get the fuck away from me.
