REVIEW: Nilüfer Yanya – ‘Miss Universe’ (ATO / P.I.A.S.)

A confident album of narrative alt-rock world building, Nilüfer Yanya’s debut record ‘Miss Universe’ introduces the public to a fresh voice.

‘Lux Prima’ by Karen O and Danger Mouse is an expansive and sonically enchanting album, and a truly unforgettable experience.  

REVIEW: Solange – ‘When I Get Home’ (Columbia / Sony)

Solange’s surprise new album ‘When I Get Home’ is a meditation on home, dreams, growth and feminine intuition, packaged in futuristic jazz and funk-inspired art-pop.

REVIEW: Julia Jacklin – ‘Crushing’ (Transgressive / P.I.A.S.)

Perfectly capturing the human experience of love, heartache and the struggle for autonomy, Julia Jacklin’s sophomore album ‘Crushing’ is an emotional triumph.
