I'm here to tell you love ain't some fucking blood on the receiver. Love is speaking in code. It's an inside joke. Love is coming home. The Format - If Work Permits

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.


Jon Hopkins - Immunity
WASNT WISNT - Standing In Waves
Maxïmo Park - Brain Cells
Marissa Nadler - July
Arcade Fire - Reflektor
We Are The Physics - Your Friend, The Atom
