Peter Broderick - '(Colours Of The Night) Satellite' EP

Peter Broderick - '(Colours Of The Night)...

Because of a debilitating illness, this is Peter Broderick’s first proper release for two years. Even so, at 27, the Portland musician has made a stream of records ranging from piano compositions (‘Dive’) to meditative, multi-instrumental...

The 2 Bears - 'The Night Is Young'

The 2 Bears - 'The Night Is Young'

The 2 Bears should be commended for their commitment to bringing a dose of fun back to the dancefloor. Former music press officer Raf Rundell and Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard are a serotonin-fuelled alternative to the cerebral glitch of the likes of...

NehruvianDOOM - 'NehruvianDOOM'

This latest hook-up between rising New York MC Bishop Nehru and legendary metal-masked producer and rapper MF DOOM neatly illustrates the potential pitfalls of collaboration. Eighteen-year-old Nehru has been releasing hook-filled mixtapes for...

Foxygen - '...And Star Power'

Foxygen - '...And Star Power'

Drugs. Temper tantrums. Onstage meltdowns. Foxygen’s flame has seemed in danger of sputtering out. After a promising second album in 2013’s ‘We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors Of Peace & Magic’, the LA psych troupe – led by...

Schultz And Forever - 'Broadcast Dynamics' EP

Schultz And Forever - 'Broadcast Dynamics' EP

Jonathan Schultz stands out from the majority of 2014’s psych-rock bandwagon. The Copenhagen teenager provides a refreshing and ramshackle alternative to the likes of Temples. Marrying languid and warped melodies with a palpable sense of...

Last Ex - 'Last Ex'

Last Ex - 'Last Ex'

Last Ex make instrumental music with a cinematic feel. Their songs, full of driving, motorik beats and textured, reverb-heavy guitar, weave dark, discomfiting atmospheres, and this debut album could have been released on horror movie soundtrack...

Melvins - 'Hold It In'

Melvins - 'Hold It In'

It can be a little hard to reconcile one’s admiration for the Melvins – three decades old as a band – with the fact that they haven’t made a consistently great album since 2006’s ‘(A) Senile Animal’. They normally strike a few...

Kindness - 'Otherness'

Kindness - 'Otherness'

This second Kindness album improves on 2012's debut, 'World, You Need A Change Of Mind', but not by much. 'Why Don't You Love Me' is a decent Prince pastiche, and the melancholy of 'This Is Not About Us' feels affecting, but...

Kele - 'Trick'

Kele - 'Trick'

Back in 2005, Bloc Party’s debut album ‘Silent Alarm’ set the tone for a wave of spiky art rock bands. If your acquaintance with frontman Kele Okereke began and ended there, you’d be forgiven for wondering how he’s ended up making...
