I'm afraid of heaven because I can't stand the height. I'm afraid of you because I can't be left behind. St. Vincent - Regret

Hamilton Leithauser – Black Hours

Good enough for me to stop holding a grudge in this post-Walkmen wasteland.

Mr. Little Jeans – Pocketknife

An uncommonly confident introduction.

AlunaGeorge – Body Music

“Body Music hits those pleasure centers like a ton of bricks”

Islands – Wave Forms

Nick Thorburn continues to pen infectious piano-rock.

Franz Ferdinand – Right Action

Franz Ferdinand firing on all cylinders.

Smith Westerns – Soft Will

Adulthood. For real, this time.

Portugal. The Man – Evil Friends

A pristine, infectious rock album which seriously fails to set itself apart.

Daft Punk – Random Access Memories

A rich, retro soundscape of beauty – hardly groundbreaking, but that’s hardly the point.
