...was fond of your writing, it allowed me to see into you... The Hotelier - Discomfort Revisited

Spoon – They Want My Soul

Spoon return with one of their best albums yet.

Real Estate – Atlas

“The most artful act of strength is making what you do seem effortless.”

Arcade Fire – Reflektor

Just enough cowbell.

FKA twigs – EP2

“The prospect of FKA twigs’ first full LP should have us all salivating.”

King Krule – 6 Feet Beneath The Moon

A rich, poetic record crafted from a palette of blacks and blues.

Washed Out – Paracosm

“Paracosm plays out like a glimpse into the hazy rear view mirror of Greene’s life…”

Surfer Blood – Pythons

“Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve heard you listening to Weezer.”

Mount Kimbie – Cold Spring Fault Less Youth

Their uncanny mix of the tangible and the ethereal remains ever-present – our reward (and theirs) for restless exploration.

Vampire Weekend – Modern Vampires of the City

As Vampire Weekend stretch themselves, the guitars snap and the songs really start to matter.

Deerhunter – Monomania

You can hardly blame him for acting like this is a matter of life and death. This music is how we’ll remember him.

Kendrick Lamar – good kid, m.A.A.d. city

Already a stone-cold classic.

Tall Ships – Everything Touching

An enormous fusion of math-rock, pop hooks and explosive climaxes.
