The Blue HourUnited Kingdom Suede
“As time goes by it becomes more and more apparent how Suede were one, if not THE most important band of the nineties. So after a few dodgy lps, it’s with some relief to report how this new album finds a re-energised, more vital Suede.
Although the tunes are not as instant as before, a pop heart still strongly beats within even if this is a more mature, wiser, darker Suede than ever. There’s even a return to some of the art-rock madness of Dog Man Star - and if that isn’t cause for celebration, I don’t know what is.
Simply put this is the best Suede have sounded since their heyday and no one can hold a candle to them when they’re on this form” September 2018

Wake The DeadUnited Kingdom The Third Eye Foundation
"Matt Elliott's Third Eye Foundation exists on it's own, it's mournful, resigned dub-step is unlikely to become highly fashionable. This music is a bit deeper than that, more humanist to ever fit in.
The second return to his post-rock alias this decade, Wake The Dead lets in more light, more hope than The Dark, but is obviously from the same author. It paints a world that owes very little to escapism but is more interested in holding a mirror up to the filth, the sadness and the destruction. So it's heavy going, but it is Punk Fucking Rock."

Resistance Is FutileUnited Kingdom Manic Street Preachers
”And so the Manics continue to make great albums. Lung-busting anthems (International Blue), songs that champion fighting in the face of adversity (Liverpool Revisited), and music that swells and surges with every emotion the lyrics evoke (Distant Colours), this is a welcome return to the big music of Motorcycle Emptiness and A Design For Life.
The heart to Futurology’s brain, Resistance Is Futile is more than anyone could expect from a band this late into their career. It is brilliant.." April 2018

Merrie LandUnited Kingdom The Good, The Bad & The Queen
“The release of this album couldn’t be more timely with the news being preoccupied with all things Brexit, deal or no deal etc etc.
Musically, Albarn still mines the same Brit-pop/Ska hybrid as before, although things sound a bit more queasy, tired and just a little more tattered.
Rather than the glorious dawn of a 1950’s-Festival-Of-Britain-type proportion as promised by the Brexiteers, this is a sodden soundtrack to the grim reality i.e. economic instability, broken promises, grey leaden skies and pounding, lashing rain.
Nice songs too.” November 2018

Wide Awake!United States Parquet Courts
“Parquet Courts are the archetypal good-time band, optimistic, wide-eyed and with enough feel-good tunes to get anyone rockin’. That’s not to say that they can’t be affecting cos they can e.g. Freebird II, Death Will Bring Change, Tenderness etc etc, but they’re one band not to be forgotten once the party’s over.” June 2018

Double NegativeUnited States Low
“Well, kudos to Low for moving out of their comfort zone and making something as weird and well, lovely as this. There is distortion - loads of it, deep bass rumbles and an overwhelming sense of dislocation. It sounds like it shouldn’t work but it does. Reckon Low are just slow-core? Prepare to have that misconception challenged.” September 2018

Little Dark AgeUnited States MGMT
"MGMT are back and this time they're ready to kick ass, albeit in their own distinctive way. As usual, Side 1 is full of addictive, ear worm pop songs whilst Side 2 goes for another woozy, psychedelic journey - not without rewards. Definitely, they're best since their high watermark of 10 years ago." February 2018

WanderlustUnited Kingdom Blancmange
“Believe it or not but Blancmange’s latest is a synth-pop album the way they used to make ‘em. There are doff’s of the hat to Moroder, Depeche Mode, especially Depeche Mode, with the synths making more than a passing resemblance to the Violator era, there’s even a song called “In Your Room”!!!
But that’s only half the story with classily, seductive pop songs and thought-provoking lyrics vying for your attention. If you think Blancmange’s story ended in the mid-80’s, you couldn’t be more wrong.“ October 2018

Insecure MenUnited Kingdom Insecure Men
"It's nice to know this kind of indie hasn't died out, even if it is delivered in the form of sarcastic synth-pop with a nice line in disturbing but blackly comic lyrics - not forgetting the surreal, Hawaiian lounge-pop theme floating around.
Right now, only the (re-invigorated) MGMT are giving these guys competition for this kind of thing and that's a good thing." February 2018

The Sound Of MusicSlovenia Laibach
“Laibach’s rendition of the soundtrack to The Sound Of Music is proof that music can still be a political force. Although it can verge on camp, especially when Milan Fras’ deep, deep bass voice looms into sight (did I just say incongruous?), but it soon becomes obvious that the movies’ anti-fascist, libertine message resonates deeply with the band’s anti-totalitarianist stance. It also makes for fine listening during this festive season.” November 2018
