“Anger, frustration, love, dislocation, suicide, death. These are just a few of the subjects dealt with by this relatively new band on their debut album.
The Murder Capital are Irish - this is important. James McGovern sings with an Irish accent and his thick brogue smears a softness and poeticism/romanticism that has been sorely missing lately.
And then there’s the music, more post-punk than punk, it’s an urgent and intense mix that veers from sky-scraping ferocity to emotionally naked intimacy.
Like Interpol and Bloc Party, they are one of those bands, they love Joy Division but this is no hastily cobbled-together facsimile. Joy Division are an obvious influence, a springboard from which to map their dreams and nightmares.
Get ready, The Murder Capital are slaying.“ August 2019

“The 2010’s have been a particularly rough decade for Indie Rock and Rock in general. It’s been easy to become weary of UK/US artistes with nothing interesting to say no matter how many ideas are thrown at the wall.
Cometh the hour, cometh the man and the most engaging and idiosyncratic frontman is a North county Dublin man who’s calling time on the bullshit we’re all floating in. Tunes, this band have them, some with the ability to make you go weak at the knees (Roy’s Tune, Dublin City Sky).
The future’s bright, the future’s Irish.” July 2019

“1994, of all the times to conjure up, when UK indie looked like it was going to kick seven bells out of the mainstream, when it felt like anything was possible, Piroshka have 1994 written through them like a stick of Brighton Rock.
That’s not to say this Shoegaze/Brit-pop supergroup is some lazy retread of the past because it’s anything but (2019 life has a way of infiltrating these songs) - it’s more of a case of being middle-aged but still feeling like a twenty-something - and then there’s the songs which in any sane world should be blasted from any self-respecting indie-kid’s stereo. And I haven’t even mentioned it features Miki from Lush. Seriously.” February 2019

“Girl Band are the sort of band for which the term “reinvention of the guitar” seems to have been born for. There is some serious guitar-abuse here that harks back to the more out-there noise-outs of Sonic Youth and My Bloody Valentine in-extremis and then some. But it’s not shoegaze, it’s far more violent and neurotic than that.
I can’t make out a word Dara is singing but every primal scream he utters sounds strong enough to strip wallpaper. More importantly, this is the best thing they’ve done so far and likely to be the most original/innovative album regarding indie-rock you’ll hear all year.” September 2019

“Momus has had a long and varied career but his latest album is the only one so far to be solely indebted to, er, accordion music.
As a theme it’s a tricky one but it works, as all kinds of electronic effects swirl around Currie’s atypical pop songs. The lyrics are as barbed as ever, often with an incisive social critique, updating Momus’ perv-pop for the oncoming Endarkenment.“ November 2019

“It’s been posited that Warren Defever is a bit of a wag, a bit of a wind-up merchant and if you were to believe the timeline attributed to these recordings, the 10 year Defever, rather than reading comix about the Incredible Hulk or Darth Vader, was sculpting barely-there, ethereal soundscapes for never-neverland. But it doesn’t matter if he’s pulling our leg because the music is so good, being more than reminiscent of some of the more out-there musical excursions of Flying Saucer Attack - that good. A sort of lo-fi, ghostly sonic heaven, where every tuft and curlicue of every sonic cloud is teased to perfection. A dream.” June 2019 [First added to this chart: 06/20/2019]

“After the light touch of Forget, Girl...is a return to Angel Guts’ dark pit of despair. However, even that album had a pop feel Girl...really doesn’t, the music being percussive heavy with the vocals (often) disjointedly laid on top. You could say this is Xiu Xiu but hardcore which says a lot considering Stewart’s career-old preoccupation with humiliation and degradation.
I still don’t know what to make of it but I still can’t stop listening.” February 2019

“Ride V.2 continues with another strong album of psychedelic rock TUNES that is better than we have any reason to hope for. It’s funny how time goes by how Ride have begun to resemble a sort of Oxford Beach Boys, especially when those sun-kissed harmonies kick in. Ride on.” August 2019 [First added to this chart: 05/13/2019]

“ Ex-4AD alumni who were around during the first wave of shoegaze. This is a well crafted album of dream-pop that manages to balance dreamy nostalgia with punchy optimism. That driving, repetitive shoegaze sound is there (Rocky Endings being the most impressive example), as are floaty washes of guitar and electronica. The feel-good album of 2019.”

“I avoided Skeleton Tree precisely for the reason that Nick Cave had suffered a tragic death in his family and it seemed like he was working through his grief and at that point I had no interest in intruding on his suffering.
However things are not so raw and it feels right to listen to his new album. Thankfully, it is a stately and beautiful piece of work that is dignified in both accepting loss and its celebration of life. Well done, Nick.” October 2019

Are these your reviews? It's a little confusing because of the quotes. Anyways, they are great ones and clearly of the same voice. Great, great chart!
