It's hard to gauge 'Realign'. It's a musical wonderland of intrepid psychedelic soundscapes that makes for a somewhat interesting listening experience, but it's also a maniacal sprawl of lyrical ideas that just don't seem to work well as actual songs. Whether it be through scathing critiques of society, or abstract descriptions of emotion, it does feel that the majority of this album was written out of a catharsis of sorts that wasn't focused very well on poignant ideas or interesting songs. ... read more

A stunning misfire from otherwise competent producers of great turn-your-brain-off hip-hop dance music of decades past, 'Translation' may very well inspire in audiences a hatred for snare drums, interpolation and sampling, and mouth noises. There seems to be no effort put into the album's lyrics, music, production, sound, or otherwise; as if they had simply put interpolated melodies and samples and default drum beats from FL Studio into a poorly-coded algorithm and it spat out these fifteen ... read more

In its spectacularly stylistic opening, 'Honey Moon Drips' immediately draws you into a world of heavy, heartbreak-driven songs tastefully painted with a really satisfying and moody electronic rock soundtrack punctuated with brilliant use of ambient sounds and infectiously catchy synth loops and guitar melodies.

'Chromatica' is played incredibly safe; not daring, devious, or adventurous. Yet, in this mostly consistent 43-minute run, conveniently divided into three sections by some charming interlude music, is neat EDM-based escapism that grabs at both nostalgia for 2000s house music and stereotypical emotional cues that are best used in this kind of dance music. The album is formulaic as all hell though, so while there may be some great moments from time to time such as the funky guitar riff of ... read more

While sonically ambitious, 'Brace' misses its mark by often repeating itself thematically across its rather thinly spread 46-minute length, despite its remarkable moments in music and production. Hauntingly colourful depictions of revolution and apocalypse are somehow made uninteresting by the record's end, and Ian Kenny's soft and charming vocals are far from suitable for the kind of gritty electronic alt rock sound that features prominently on 'Brace'. However, the adventure offered to ... read more
