Taylor Swift - folklore Review

“What Folklore ultimately achieves in its narrative of escapism is reinforcing the notion that Swift is, first and foremost, a storyteller. Folklore is sad, beautiful, somewhat tragic - a little bit off the wall - but most of all it feels free. It appears Swift has become the indie record much cooler than hers.” 5 stars

The Coronas - True Love Waits Review

“Lighthearted and easy to like, but maybe in need of a slice of lime…”  3.5 stars

PVRIS - Use Me Review

“Lowell, Massachusetts band PVRIS’s Use Me is their most streamlined and production-pristine work to date, emphasising their bittersweet lyrics.”

Kodaline- One Day At A Time Review

“Irish Quartet Kodaline’s fourth album One Day At A Time is a raw, emotionally driven body of work - effortless and cleverly crafted all at one.” 4.5 stars

SoKo - Feel Feelings Review

“chic, reminiscent of Charlotte Gainsbourg and Cat Power, an evening bath steeped in bubbles, a glass of red on the side.” 3.5 stars

The Pretenders - Hate For Sale Review

“a vivacious, splendidly wicked and just-that-little-bit dangerous return from The Pretenders.” 4 stars

Katy Perry - Smile Review

“Sparkly hooks, a solidly entertaining range of production and euphorically emotive vocals offset a staggering lack of growth on Katy Perry’s Smile.”

EADES - I Want More Review

I Want More is a grainy black-and-white film track, a “let’s just drive” track, an afternoon picking wildflowers track; it’s filtered escapism, and hot on the heels of Eades recent EP success.”

BRAIDS’ - Shadow Offering Review

“carefully artistic, exploring the light and shadow of loving and being loved in a rich emotional tapestry of sound.” 3 stars

Lianne La Havas - Lianne La Havas Review

“Every song is an earworm, haunting in the way only inspiring music can be; a beautiful ghost to soundtrack your life to.” 5 stars

Creeper - Sex, Death and The Infinite Void Review

“thrilling,coquettishly idiosyncratic, and filled to the brim with palpable pride at their lack of creative limits.”

Mint Field - Sentimiento Mundial Review

“Psychedelic Tijuana duo Mint Field have created a chromatic spectrum of sound on this oddly propulsive album, a body of work that speaks to the stars.”
