It's crazy to believe that this is Mourn's third album. And for the most part, this sounds like where the band should be right about now. I continue to think that the band is at their most memorable when they're going for that moody, Punk sound that I was introduced to them with years ago on their debut. The harmonies are on point, and some of these vocal performances are wildly passionate. But when Mourn slow things down, it often gets pretty ugly sadly. And why are there legitimate ... read more

So it goes without saying, but this is by far the worst Chromeo project to date. Not even genuinely big guests can save this album from making me feel like we've been here, time and time again with Chromeo. Thankfully, this album isn't all garbage. Sure, the production here is absolutely squeaky clean, and half of these tracks seem more interested with crafting a crossover Pop hit than anything. But with Chromeo's Electro-Funk style in tact and sleazier than ever, it actually works to their ... read more

Part of me wants to dive into this unforgiving world of Zeal & Ardor headfirst and not look back.  But most of me, thinks they still have a little ways to go.  This album has some unbelievably fresh sounds and ideas that I can't tell you how much they excite me.  Blends of Gospel, Blues, Folk and more alongside crushing Black Metal, I mean come on, that's wild.  But for one, the production here is much MUCH cleaner than anything they've touched in the past.  Which ... read more

Spiritual Cramp on this 11 minute EP do more for the Post and Dance Punk genres than most acts in the game right now. In 4 tracks, this EP travels from Dub Reggae to Old School grimy Punk. The performances are manic and extremely urgent, and there are few moments here where I'm not completely excited to hear what these guys do next. Also, the versatility of this band is just so freakin' interesting, I can't wait to hear these guys in full album mode. What's next boys?

Hilary Woods on this album creates a lush set of songs with dreamy vibes and often a nightmarish atmosphere. Coming off as a cross between Zola Jesus and Marissa Nadler, the music on this album is often slow and very intense, and more often than not, beautiful. There are a few times that I worry a track or two overlap a little too much, and one or two tracks could have been more fleshed out. But overall, I think this is a very solid debut that shows Hilary's talents. I actually would have ... read more
