Gang of Youths’ Go Farther In Lightness is an underrated indie-rock masterpiece. While keeping with the emotional pathos and complex song-writing of their debut, it is also heavier in sound and much more emotionally immediate. While The Positions opens with the slow-burn of “Vital Signs”, Lightness opens with “Fear and Trembling” which, though opening with a short piano intro, soon bursts into the surge of Arcade Fire-esque indie rock energy that would also carry ... read more

BROCKHAMPTON are a group that I’m slightly familiar with but have been a bit hesitant to do really do a deep dive on, seeing as they’re been around for less than a decade but have such a prolific discography (see also: King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard). Roadrunner: New Light, New Machine is proposed to be one of the collective’s final albums. Lead single “BUZZCUT” is a high-energy banger that kicks off the album; Danny Brown lends a verse on the track and ... read more

Even though I do think she’s very vocally talented and I’ve enjoyed some of her singles in the past, I’ve never really been sure what to make of Demi Lovato. Over the past decade, her sound has jumped between teen pop, pop-rock and R&B, and it really felt like she had found a sound that felt like home to her. On her latest album Dancing With The Devil: The Art of Starting Over, Demi takes from all of these previous sounds and looks into the demons of her past as a means of ... read more

Though they are clearly good at creating music that captures a nocturnal atmosphere, London Grammar’s third album doesn’t offer too much of a progression from the atmospheric indie pop that they’ve come to be known for in their two previous albums. The most prominent difference I can find with Californian Soil is that the instrumentation at points features more prominent use of both orchestral elements and electronics. Though the songs feel more fleshed out instrumentally and ... read more

I don’t usually listen to things I expect to dislike...but morbid curiosity got the best of me.

Fully knowing their reputation, I was surprised to find that - even though I didn’t like it, I didn’t find this *completely* infuriating. Still, that’s a low bar. As with all AJR albums, the album opens with a mash of all the tracks on the album which always feels disjointed and never really flows. There are tracks on here like “3 ‘O Clock Things” and ... read more

Middle Kids have been through a lot in the last 3 years since their last album - 2018’s Lost Friends - with lead singer Hannah Joy and guitarist Tim Fitz having married and had their first child in that time. With those experiences, the band found themselves stepping back looking at the state of their changing lives and personal relationships, resulting in the band’s second album Today We’re The Greatest being a more emotionally direct piece. The album is a step up from the ... read more

Hi! I agree, we do have a very similar taste! I've been working on a top 50 singles list over the past few weeks. I'm hoping to have it finalized in a week or so! I just checked out your list, and I have a lot of the same songs in my list as well!
