Showcasing the Best New Music, Curating the Classics

REVIEW: Pixies – ‘Head Carrier’ (Pixiesmusic / P.I.A.S.)

Despite some mediocre moments, ‘Head Carrier’ gives us an older, more sensible Pixies who sound as though they’re having fun with their music.

REVIEW: Passenger – ‘Young As The Morning Old As The Sea’ (Black Crow)

Michael Rosenberg gives us another collection of songs that are mostly tolerable and pleasant enough, yet still feel utterly bland and emotionally contrived.

REVIEW: Boxed In – Melt (Nettwerk)

‘Melt’ doesn’t exactly reinvent the wheel, but it’s exciting to hear a promising young band begin to experiment.

REVIEW: Cymbals Eat Guitars – ‘Pretty Years’ (Sinderlyn)

If you hadn’t been sold on Cymbals Eat Guitars already, then you’re unlikely to be by the end of ‘Pretty Years’.

REVIEW: Teenage Fanclub – ‘Here’ (Merge)

‘Here’ is by no means the most cutting-edge rock record you’ll come across in 2016, but it neither needs nor wants to be.

REVIEW: Zomby – ‘Ultra’ (Hyperdub)

‘Ultra’ is an often experimental and occasionally enthralling addition to Zomby’s growing discography.
