  • Mount Eerie: Now Only
    by Sam Sodomsky on March 16, 2018 at 5:00 am

    The expansive companion album to last year’s A Crow Looked At Me is no less a marvel. Phil Elverum’s latest is part memoir and part magnum opus, sung softly and with wonder. […]

  • Soccer Mommy: Clean
    by Jenn Pelly on March 5, 2018 at 6:00 am

    Sophie Allison’s excellent studio debut is a compact album of clear melodies, plainspoken lyrics, and the impossibly tangled logic of infatuation. […]

  • A.A.L (Against All Logic) : 2012 - 2017
    by Andrew Gaerig on March 1, 2018 at 6:00 am

    Dusting off an old alias, Nicolas Jaar lets loose a surprise release of sample-heavy cuts both bolder and more refined than his early club tracks. […]

  • SOB X RBE: Gangin
    by Paul A. Thompson on February 26, 2018 at 6:00 am

    The four-man Bay Area rap crew delivers a breathless, irresistible, and highly defined record that hits your gut and your shoulders at the same time. […]

  • U.S. Girls: In a Poem Unlimited
    by Jonah Bromwich on February 20, 2018 at 6:00 am

    Meg Remy is a narrative savant and her glorious, danceable new album is a righteous collection of razor-sharp songs, full of spit and fury, a high-water mark for political pop music. […]

  • Car Seat Headrest: Twin Fantasy
    by Mark Richardson on February 16, 2018 at 6:00 am

    Will Toledo’s re-recorded version of an album originally released in 2011 speaks to his greatest gifts as a songwriter: wit, cynicism, and an eye for detail that captures teenaged desire and heartache. […]

  • CupcakKe: Ephorize
    by Claire Lobenfeld on January 9, 2018 at 6:00 am

    The fearless Chicago rapper offers her best album yet, with terrific production and a barrage of raps that reveal Elizabeth Harris to be far more than her hilarious and absurdly raunchy one-liners. […]

  • Charli XCX: Pop 2
    by Meaghan Garvey on December 20, 2017 at 6:00 am

    Charli XCX’s latest mixtape is a vision of what pop music could be, the sound of an eclectic, hyperreal future where romantic love is fun but fucked and partying is an emotional refuge. […]

  • Björk: Utopia
    by Jeremy D. Larson on November 27, 2017 at 6:00 am

    Filled with flute and birdsong, Björk’s 10th album is deeply personal, a discovery of googly-eyed romance, a rebuke of violent men, and a generous offering of love song after love song. […]

  • Charlotte Gainsbourg: Rest
    by Olivia Horn on November 17, 2017 at 6:00 am

    Sung mostly in French, Gainsbourg’s gripping new album finds her in the tangles of grief. It is at once scorchingly intimate and fantastically oversized. […]
