Bodega’s punches often fail to connect on disappointingly brief and underwritten EP ‘Shiny New Model’.
Dark post-punk ranging from high-energy ragers to ghostly, minimalist pieces, ‘When I Have Fears’ is a fine debut from Dublin’s The Murder Capital.
Quite aside from the backlash it’s generated, ‘No Man’s Land’ certainly represents an over-extension of Frank Turner’s emotional resources.
Forsaking the electric guitar for the first time in his career, Ty Segall’s latest studio creation ‘First Taste’ still manages to convincingly re-create his psych-garage style.
His first new album in six years, Bill Callahan is in reflective and ruminative form on ‘Shepherd In A Sheepskin Vest’.
Matt Thomson’s claims for The Amazons’ second album ‘Future Dust’ fall short, with a collection of unremarkable rock riffs and bland over-production.
Fifth album ‘Laughing Matter’ sees Wand drift further from their garage-rock roots and into new psychedelic worlds.
Rounding off the ‘beach series’ in style, Anderson .Paak’s third album ‘Ventura’ is yet another masterful creation of hip-hop, soul, disco and funk.
Energetic, creative and brilliantly unpredictable, debut album ‘Birthday’ shows why Pom Poko have been one of the most talked-about newcomers in indie.
Girlpool’s third studio album ‘What Chaos Is Imaginary’ is uncharacteristically lethargic and lacking in ideas compared to their previous records.
