Sleaford Mods
Austerity Dogs

Months ago, back when I first started seeing this album on this site, I had it judged by its cover, title and band name. "Brilliant," I thought, "more wannabe 'Mod' twats selling that line about how important it is in working class culture to wear a sharp coat." Fully expecting it to contain the latest forgettable rehash of crappy Mod nostalgia,...view item »

Kid Koala
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Everytime I listen to Kid Koala's work, I'm always struck by how well he exhibits what's missing from hip-hop today: irrelevance. No, I'm not talking about the "funny-guy," Colt 45-drunken gangsta-mack who pays thong-clad ladies to let him harass them in his $2 million videos, I'll taking about a DJ who actually found and samples Winnie the Pooh as...view item »

I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside: An Album by Earl Sweatshirt

On ‘I Don’t Like Shit’, Earl Sweatshirt has stopped trying on sounds and has started airing his shit out.

Portishead

Essential three LP re-press of the Bristolian soundtracky trip-hoppers second LP from back in 1997.  This is the one that eschewed their debut's occasional pop moves and delved deep into sample-delica and disturbing textures.

MF DOOM
Operation: Doomsday

Simultaneously hailed as an underground classic and cast aside as poorly produced backpack rap, Operation: Doomsday inaugurated the reign of MF Doom in underground rap from the early to mid-2000s.

Prefuse 73
Sacrifices

Last spotted writing an album called 'Lady Parts' as Fudge, it feels like time Scott Heron got back to doing what he's best at.

Archy Marshall
A New Place 2 Drown

Archy Marshall (also known as King Krule) isn't one for sitting still. He currently has three monikers including The Return of Pimp Shrimp.

KMD
Mr. Hood

Everybody remembers KMD for launching a young Zev Love X’s career, during which he became known as MF DOOM. But the group’s work is not to be overlooked: Mr. Hood is a classic piece of '90s hip hop with a tonne of twisted sampling, tight flows and catchy beats in general. Part of your hip hop education, son!...view item »

Stormzy
Gang Signs & Prayer

I keep seeing him in my morning Metro. He tweets doesn't he? And he's gone from grime king to global superstar following appearances on Jools Holland and with Kanye. This record shows him immersing himself in the sort of songwriting and production that may have been unexpected from listening to his raw early work. It's already s...view item »

Sweatson Klank
Fine Lines

We all wish we could be called Sweatson Klank, but unfortunately, there can be only one.

Viz Top Tip. Save money on buying this record by slowing down the pitch of your record player by about a sixth and playing your copy of 'Drunk'.  Because that's all they've done here.

Young Fathers
Cocoa Sugar

Once causing me to choke on a shreddie when seeing them being announced as Mercury Music Prize winners, Young Fathers are one of the very few winners of that mystical prize to actually be any good and also to keep making good records and not immediately going down the spout.  Part of the reason for this is the self contained environment the...view item »

Beastie Boys
Hello Nasty

Although only 17 years old, I’m sure we can all agree that Hello Nasty was due for a reissue.

Born in Zambia, based in Sydney, she prefers coming at her albums from the point of view of a mixtape, hence a wild mix of songwriting, poetics and calls for social action over hip-hop, soul, samba all tied together within the web of modern pop. In many respects an album that simultaneously appeals to those looking for the next K...view item »

Beastie Boys
To The 5 Boroughs

The album may not have the energetic poppin' synth beats that form 'Nasty'. It may not have the raw and distorted ways of 'Ill', and 'Check Your Head.'

And in some tracks they s...view item »

Madlib
Shades Of Blue

Shades of Blue is an incredible sampling of Blue Note, and holds many excellent tracks.

East Man
Red, White & Zero

Anthoney Hart is well practiced in sparseness. As Imaginary Forces he stripped down techno and dubstep, leaving it unfamiliar and cold. As East Man, he pulls the same trick with grime.
