Album Reviews | By Volume

Gotta get out, before my heart explodes. Candy Says - Not Kings

Love Inks – Exi

A deceptive gem of a record.

Goat – Commune

Join in the ritual.

Billy the Kid – Horseshoes & Hand Grenades

An emotional, striking and all-around engrossing record.

Blonde Redhead – Barragán

Ultimately a bit dull.

Cymbals Eat Guitars – LOSE

LOSE still finds Cymbals Eat Guitars at their explosive best.

FKA Twigs – LP1

Trust in Twigs.

The New Pornographers – Brill Bruisers

A “celebration record” from an inherently celebratory band is a good thing.

Sinkane – Mean Love

A finely tuned album with more than a few serious jams.

White Lung – Deep Fantasy

Unfiltered, unhampered and flat-out great punk rock.
