Album Review: Panda Bear - Mr Noah EP

It’s been a great year and a half or so for writing albums about death. Most recently, Flying Lotus killed on impact with his incredible You’re Dead!, but Noah Lennox, a.k.a. Panda Bear, isn’t far behind. Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper has been whispered around the Animal Collective spheres for what feels like forever,Read more...

Live Review: MØ with HOLYCHILD at Neptune Theatre 10/20/2014

Everything I’ve ever thought about MØ is wrong. Well, maybe not all of it – I think she put together an incredible debut LP this year with No Mythologies To Follow, and I think that hard work has put her in league with the leaders of the new wave of indie pop like Grimes, CharliRead more...

Album Review: Run The Jewels - Run The Jewels 2

Last year, Mike and Jaime made a free record that they expected a handful of Killer Mike and El-P fans to like. After all, the two have been working together for a while – Mike made an appearance on El’s Cancer 4 Cure, then El produced Mike’s best record ever, R.A.P. Music. Together, the twoRead more...

Album Review: Hudson Mohawke - Chimes EP

I don’t know if there’s a UK producer on the scene who has had a bigger 2014 than Hudson Mohawke. The Glasgow native has been riding an unstoppable wave of momentum that hasn’t stopped since his collaboration with Lunice, TNGHT, put out their eponymous EP back in July of 2012.

Album Review: Kele - Trick

It’s funny to say it, but in the last half decade of Kele‘s work, Bloc Party’s comeback LP Four is an outlier amongst an otherwise continuous show of strength in another direction. Sure, Four gave Bloc Party fans another great record to rotate out in their stash, but since the band’s electronic-heavy third LP, Intimacy,Read more...

Album Review: Childish Gambino - STN MTN/Kauai

Some haters will always hate, no matter what gold you throw at them, but Donald Glover sure silenced a multitude of them with last year’s out of nowhere sophomore slinger Because the Internet. As Childish Gambino, Glover started a rap career with immediate pushback, with critics claiming that he was flexing his networking connections toRead more...
