Rebound is the fourth solo album by Eleanor Friedberger, which follows 2016’s New View.

Island
Feels Like Air

London youngsters Island have been making waves with their fervent indie pop over a couple EPs and their single Try, which is taken from their debut album Feels Like Air. There’s a limited edition coloured vinyl version if you’re quick, otherwise you can get black vinyl and a lavishly packaged CD. On French Kiss....view item »

The Hold Steady
Almost Killed Me

Almost Killed Me is the debut album of The Hold Steady, the band who managed to ascend bar-band rock’n’roll to a high art form. Craig Finn writes about the minutiae of young American life with a poet’s eye for detail, and this debut begins the saga of his character Charlemagne. Alm...view item »

Drowners
On Desire

Despite having a reasonable level of success with their first album, New York based (with a hint of Welsh) outfit Drowners second LP is filled with uncertainty and darkness. This time round the band write the songs collaboratively rather than coming from the pen of singer Matt Hitt. Still, their brand of dark post punk will appe...view item »


Eleanor Friedberger
New View

One half of Fiery Furnaces returns with her third solo album, New View. Eleanor Friedberger brings her distinctive attitude to some summery and upbeat indie-pop. Her singular voice ties together this collection of playful rock and pop and her more experimental interests are kept in check by ridi...view item »


Drowners
Drowners

Raised in the Welsh Valley’s, lead Drowner Matthew Hitt (aka ’the Hittmaker’) relocated to grimy old New York to kick start his music career  and by the reaction to the debut single ‘Between Us Girls’ which sold about a million copies then he may have stumbled onto something. That something seems to be ...view item »

Bloc Party
Octopus

The last thing I read about Bloc Party was that the other three were rehearsing without the singer who was off doing his own thing, possibly posing semi-naked everywhere or whatever he does when he doesn’t do this. ...view item »

Bloc Party
Four

There are some definite 4-star songs on this album as well as some 2-star songs.... which brings me to a lower 3-star rating for Four. Mostly I'm just confounded by the disjointedness of the entire work - it's Bloc Party in places and just very odd experimentation in others. I'm all for a band branching out but when you release an album it shoul...view item »

Les Savy Fav
Inches

Over-sexed, over-rated, and over-hyped. Les Savy Fav are a trivial band, writing trivial music. This is music for faint hearted. Beige. ...view item »

S Prcss
MMNL

S Process is reminiscent of that late 70s art-punk sound but they aren't trying to be Wire or Gang of Four, they definitely have their own sound. S Process KNOWS how to incorporate the disco/synth stuff, unlike the Gang of Four. Riffs, beats, lines and vocals are all hot, simultaneously stimulating your brain and your feet. The production on this a...view item »
