Sting and Shaggy – ’44/876′ Review

Well, what a strange thing this is. True, there have been reggae elements to Sting’s music since he and The Police implored Roxanne not to put her on red light,…

Confidence Man – ‘Confident Music For Confident People’ Review

Now then: Confidence Man. It’s a sound somewhere between the synth- and cowbell-driven electro-punk abandon of early LCD Soundsystem and Le Tigre, elevated by a sense of Beck’s genre-remixing spirit and…

Kylie Minogue – ‘Golden’ Review

Within the past year, Nashville seems to have put out a bat-signal for popstars of the ‘00s. Country-pop has come a-calling for them all: it made Justin Timberlake embrace the…

Goat Girl – ‘Goat Girl’ Review

Wonky, weird and resolutely DIY, South London’s Goat Girl make the kind of ragged, jagged music that’s at once spookily ominous and utterly exhilarating. The four piece’s debut album is…
