Sadly, after a 7 year wait Califone returns with an oddball release. One half instrumentals, a handful of meandering cuts, bookended by two classically structured Califone songs. It's a nice attempt at soundtracking a dance film, but for Califone fans it's just not what we wanted after this long of a wait.

Critics are whack on this. Its business as usual with the Bulbs, which means crunchy post punk meets black metal riffage. Not as good as their debut but worthwhile nonetheless.

Engaging and ethereal, this first part of Moses Sumneys 2020 return is stunning. The segue tracks aren't necessary, but the core tracks are some of his best work - Virile, Conveyor, Neither/Nor, and of course the beautiful closer Polly.

The soundtrack to a 90s movie remake we never asked for. Just plain boring.

Not quite the pummeling masterpiece that preceded it, but Man Alive is a step towards more conventional songwriting while still keeping one foot fully submerged in the Ooz.
