Album artwork of 'The Great Dismal' by Nothing

The Great Dismal Nothing

Unabashedly grim, but reassuringly gentle. The album's striking cover art of a menacing but fragile old man is a good indicator of what to expect.

Album artwork of 'Visions of Bodies Being Burned' by clipping.

Visions of Bodies Being Burned clipping.

Relentless and unpredictable, the album's like the spawn of a Satanic ritual in a theme park. It’s oppressive and challenging, but also warm and charming.

Album artwork of 'The Universal Want' by Doves

The Universal Want Doves

It seems that a template was drawn up and filled in ten times over, such that every track sounds like the last, only wearing a different hat.

Album artwork of 'Nothing as the Ideal' by All Them Witches

Nothing as the Ideal All Them Witches

A sumptuously produced blend of folk, post-rock, and psychedelia, all with a smokey stoner sheen. When it gets rolling the grooves are irresistible.

Album artwork of 'Inner Song' by Kelly Lee Owens

Inner Song Kelly Lee Owens

The album is so delicate that it feels too fragile for its own good. It’s like a frozen wildflower - beautiful, but could shatter at any moment.

Album artwork of 'King’s Disease' by Nas

King’s Disease Nas

A pleasant, consistent, and enjoyable listen. Here’s hoping Nas and Hit Boy build on their clear chemistry with a follow-up.

Album artwork of 'Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables' by Dead Kennedys

Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables Dead Kennedys

Dead Kennedys' iconic debut still boasts some of the most brilliant and uncompromisingly cynical songs that punk has ever seen.

Album artwork of 'Dreamland' by Glass Animals

Dreamland Glass Animals

The album is a nostalgia trip and, unintentionally(?), the longest ‘only Millenials will remember’ meme in some time.

Album artwork of 'After the Gold Rush' by Neil Young

After the Gold Rush Neil Young

Along with a supremely confident and symbiotic backing band, Neil Young imbues each track with this and easygoing courageousness. A true classic.

Album artwork of 'Lianne La Havas' by Lianne La Havas

The record lacks hooks and memorable moments. Although this is La Havas' most cohesive album to date, it may also be her most forgettable.
