NxWorries – ‘Yes Lawd!’ Album Review

Breezy Lovejoy. That was Anderson .Paak’s first moniker as a musician. Probably for the best that he ditched it – dude sounded like a minor character from Anchorman – but…

The Courteeners – ‘Mapping The Rendezvous’ Review

“No one will ever replace us,” goes one of the more memorable choruses on The Courteeners’ fifth album – and after eight years as Britain’s “biggest underground band” it might…

Score

Conor Oberst – ‘Ruminations’ Review

“Catheter piss, fed through a tube,” Conor Oberst warbles on ‘Counting Sheep’ as if singing his own hospital charts, “blood pressure’s fine, 121 over 75…”. Oberst has mastered garage punk…

Solange – ‘A Seat At The Table’ Review

Solange’s 2012 EP ‘True’ wasn’t perfect, but its slinky yet scuzzy alternative pop jams seemed to capture her perfectly at the time. Sure, big sister Beyoncé was the superstar, but…
