REVIEW: Tinashe – ‘Joyride’ (RCA / Sony)

Tinashe’s third album ‘Joyride’ displays plenty of vocal talent, but her presence is often obscured by her male collaborators.

REVIEW: The Voidz – ‘Virtue’ (RCA / Sony)

Julian Casablancas’ side-project The Voidz returns with its second LP ‘Virtue’, which transcends its overly long and experimental nature to be a largely enjoyable listen.

REVIEW: The Vaccines – ‘Combat Sports’ (Sony)

The Vaccines’ fourth album ‘Combat Sports’, a sleek and focussed effort, sees them reacquire their confidence by returning to first principles.

REVIEW: George Ezra – ‘Staying At Tamara’s’ (Columbia / Sony)

George Ezra’s second record ‘Staying At Tamara’s’ is pure escapism – a decently put together, well-produced but slightly artless half an hour.

REVIEW: Foster The People – ‘Sacred Hearts Club’ (Columbia / Sony)

Probably now doomed to be remembered as a one-hit wonder, Foster The People’s utterly inoffensive third album ‘Sacred Hearts Club’ completely lacks originality.

REVIEW: London Grammar – ‘Truth Is A Beautiful Thing’ (Ministry of Sound / Sony)

After a four year wait, London Grammar play things very conservatively on their second album, opting to refine and polish the sound of the first rather than break new ground.

Amber Coffman’s first solo album after leaving Dirty Projectors, ‘City Of No Reply’, is sadly far too polite and inoffensive to be memorable enough.

REVIEW: Harry Styles – ‘Harry Styles’ (Columbia / Sony)

Stepping out of the shadow of One Direction for the first time, Harry Styles’ self-titled debut is confident, surprisingly enjoyable and mostly credible.
