Review: Shearwater, ‘Animal Joy’

Jonathan Meiburg's first LP post-Lost Arc boasts indie-rock bombast done well. Booms, kabooms, and quivers.
David Bevan / February 16, 2012

Review: Young Magic, ‘Melt’

Out percussion, global found sounds gun for acoustic dance music. Animal Collective's long tail wags.

Review: Oren Ambarchi, ‘Audience Of One’

Drone-obsessed submarine pilot drifts sideways into doom-jazz, minimal rock ecstasy, Ace Frehley covers.

Review: Loops of Your Heart, ‘And Never Ending Nights’

The Field's new, meta-alias says it all—cosmic pulse, mind/body union, Ouroboros bliss.
Philip Sherburne / February 16, 2012

Review: Goatwhore, ‘Blood For The Master’

Not even a deal with the Devil could save these NOLA black meddlers from samey-ness.

Review: Busdriver, ‘Beaus$Eros’

Weird electro-ballads and tongue-twister raps increasingly leave harsh taste. But "Picking Band Names" is funny.

Review: Various Artists, ‘Kitsune Parisien II’

Stargazing electro-pop for twee dance floors straight via Cut Copy circa 2006. In a good way.

Review: Tennis, ‘Young and Old’

Patrick Carney’s lightly-scuffed production and rhythmic mojo help define these vaguely retro guitar-pop lilters.

Review: John Talabot, ‘ƒIN’

Techno with beautiful dark twisted fantastic textures: Panda murk, night glitz, boom-bap, and melancholic triumph.

Review: Future, ‘Astronaut Status’

Maddeningly catchy choruses caked with avant-garde levels of Auto-Tune are awesome; but is this all he's got?
Brandon Soderberg / February 15, 2012

Review: Beneath The Massacre, ‘Incongruous’

More hysterically unrelenting tech-death shreddage, cf. revving motocycle engines, dial-up modems.
Christopher R. Weingarten / February 15, 2012

Review: Amos Lee, ‘As the Crow Flies EP’

Wistful folkie explores mildly darker corners, still finds soothing clichés amongst the mandolins.
David Marchese / February 15, 2012

Review: Die Antwoord, ‘TEN$ION’

Once again, let's give a warm welcome to Ninja, the meth-head Situation, and his zombie-Gelfling homeslice, Yo-Landi Vi$$er! After a brief Cape Town hiatus spent…
