REVIEW: Sharon Van Etten – ‘Remind Me Tomorrow’ (Jagjaguwar)

Sharon Van Etten’s first album in nearly five years, ‘Remind Me Tomorrow’, is a significant sonic expansion but retains all of the qualities that made her name.

REVIEW: Big Red Machine – ‘Big Red Machine’ (PEOPLE / Jagjaguwar)

A musical collaboration borne from their PEOPLE project, Aaron Dessner and Justin Vernon are a match made in indie-rock heaven on ‘Big Red Machine’.

REVIEW: Nap Eyes – ‘I’m Bad Now’ (Jagjaguwar)

All the ingredients are there for Nap Eyes’ third album ‘I’m Bad Now’ to be a triumph, but it falls short of the cerebral thrills of its predecessors.

REVIEW: Angel Olsen – ‘Phases’ (Jagjaguwar)

B-sides album ‘Phases’ is an interesting and thoroughly worthwhile accompaniment to Angel Olsen’s three studio albums thus far.

REVIEW: Gordi – ‘Reservoir’ (Jagjaguwar)

Reservoir is a thrilling listen from the off and is a great example of where Gordi is as an artist. There is still room to learn, but, this is a debut album full of interesting ideas and blissful textures which many artists would crave for.

REVIEW: Foxygen – ‘Hang’ (Jagjaguwar)

‘Hang’ frequently sounds brilliant, but Foxygen’s noise is occasionally weightless.

REVIEW: Bon Iver – ’22, A Million’ (Jagjaguwar)

’22, A Million’ not only manages to stray from anything clich├ęd but reasserts Justin Vernon’s status as one of the few artists that truly manages to make an art form out of his melancholic ponderings of the world around him.
