REVIEW: Blaenavon – ‘Everything That Makes You Happy’ (Transgressive)

Blaenavon and Ben Gregory speak eloquently about mental health on their solid second album ‘Everything That Makes You Happy’.

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.

REVIEW: Hippo Campus – ‘Bambi’ (Transgressive / P.I.A.S.)

Dabbling further in electronics and with the rougher, more lo-fi end of indie, Hippo Campus waste no time in delivering a follow-up to last year’s debut album.

REVIEW: SOPHIE – ‘Oil Of Every Pearl’s Un-Insides’ (Transgressive / P.I.A.S.)

Pop music’s most talked-about background figure SOPHIE gives us a glimpse of the artist behind the enigma with a thrilling and hyper-real debut album ‘Oil Of Every Pearl’s Un-Insides’.

CLASSIC ’00s: Foals – ‘Antidotes’

Foals’ debut album ‘Antidotes’ is far from their creative peak, but the sonic template it laid down has dominated British indie for the last 10 years.

REVIEW: Poliça & s t a r g a z e – ‘Music For The Long Emergency’ (Transgressive)

If you have followed Poliça on their discography thus far then this is yet another interesting addition. However, ‘Music For The Long Emergency’ fails as frequently as it succeeds, leaving those unfamiliar to the Minneapolis band’s work little reason to listen now.

REVIEW: Hippo Campus – ‘landmark’ (Transgressive / P.I.A.S.)

Minnesotan indie four-piece Hippo Campus’ debut album ‘landmark’ lives up to the sterling live reputation they’ve built themselves over the last four years.
