The Faint – ‘Doom Abuse’

Once the missing link between the disparate early 00s New York scenes of electroclash and The Strokes, The Faint foretold new rave with 'Danse Macabre' around 2001. Having jerk-danced their…

Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks – ‘Enter The Slasher House’

Avey Tare’s first solo album, 2010’s ‘Down There’, was an attempt to work through the break-up of his marriage. The Animal Collective member’s second, ‘Enter The Slasher House’, can hardly…

EMA – ‘The Future’s Void’

Erika M. Anderson’s second album is notably more austere than her 2011 debut, ‘Past Life Martyred Saints’. “I remember when the world was divided by a wall of concrete and…

Allez Bartoli – ‘Dola’

Allez Bartoli are a Belfast-based experimental duo from Derry made up of Gregory McGeady and Emmet Colton, and this, their self-released first album about Soviet cosmonauts lost in space, is…

Broods – ‘Broods’ EP

Sultry synth-pop siblings Caleb and Georgia Nott share a producer – Joel Little – with pop megalith Lorde. The duo’s debut EP mines a similar groove to the teenage star’s…

Sohn – ‘Tremors’

Vienna-based producer SOHN keeps a shadowy profile. Since he emerged in 2012 with breakout single ‘The Wheel’, personal details about the rising 4AD signing have been kept to a minimum.…

Off! – ‘Wasted Years’

Flying the flag for old school hardcore, the third ‘Off!’ album is a gleefully relentless thrashabout made up of 16 knee-in-the-nuts mini-ragers, each largely indiscernible from the last, all hanging…

Jaguar Skills – ’90s Hip Hop Revisited’

New York’s Nervous Records is best known for its house output, but also released some quality boom-bap hip-hop in the 90s with KRS One and Smif-N-Wessun among its alumni. For…
