Shlohmo 🐠

“If you haven’t gotten into Shlohmo before (how, I ask you?) then you’re in for a treat. While this album is something completely different from everything in the dark cellar of Witch-House, you’ll always be able to expect something of this quality from a Shlohmo release. It’s got such a nostalgia to it for something made in such alien times that even someone who doesn’t relate to the grittiness of the release can find something living and breathing along with us inside of it.” – Spill Magazine

Remo Drive  ✇

“Remo Drive have mastered the art of dark comedy. It’s easy to miss the chaos and mistake it for just another emo record with sad lyrics to happy music, but the brilliance of the misery and the playful sadism is notable. Very little, if anything, is frivolous about Natural, Everyday Degradation, yet you could spin it any time, like at a party, and it just works.” – New Noise

Raja Kumari 🍦

“Hip-hop has drawn from Bollywood and bhangra beats for years: Erik Sermon sampled Asha Bhosle back in 2002, and M.I.A. has spent much of her career finding different ways to make South Asian music and Western rap go together. In that context, Bloodline (Epic), the new EP by Indian-American songwriter and rapper Raja Kumari, sounds less like a merging of two disparate traditions than a natural extension of a conversation that’s already in progress. ” – Chicago Reader

Heart Attack Man 🏓

“The band’s newest release, Fake Blood, is a powerhouse record of classic rock riffs and infectious melodies. Right off the bat, the titular track ropes you in with an addictive earworm of a hook. The album is reminiscent of the kind of alt-rock that was popularized in the late 2000’s, but it’s the thematic content of the record that really convinced me that Fake Blood is going to be a seminal release in the bands discography. ” – The Alternative
