Pharmakon – Devour
“Like everything else Pharmakon does, this is almost unbearably intense, but in a way that resonates deeply and is almost soothing, as if the only way to justify the horrors of living is to elevate one’s self into the most chaotic state possible.” – All Music
Cousin Tony’s Brand New Firebird – New Romancer
“Despite all the dance and mystique that makes up the body of New Romancer, the record floats away on the cinematic title track, topped with a buttery sax solo, ending proceedings by wonderfully combining both the sadness and wonder of love itself into a piece of sonic beauty. ” – The Music
YACHT – Chain Tripping
“In order to create Chain Tripping, the band filtered their entire back catalogue of 82 songs through machine learning software – an application of artificial intelligence – and used the midi-data that was fed back to them to produce the album’s tracks.” – The Skinny
!!! – Wallop
“They’ve been around since the ’90s, but !!! (Chk Chk Chk) have never wavered in their bombastic, irreverent spirit. On Wallop, the band oscillate between grimy, audacious bangers and bright yet introspective tracks, to frequently pleasing results.” – Exclaim!
Ezra Furman – Twelve Nudes
“It’s a protest record for this generation but as Furman says, “this record is political, but it offers an emotional reaction rather being specific or partisan”. It’s through this emotionally cathartic album that the listener will find so much relatability to the material and to Furman’s take on what it feels like to be living in the world as we know it today.” – Northern Transmissions
Paranoid London – PL
“On their self-titled debut, Paranoid London expertly followed the blueprint laid out by Chicago house — craft personality-rich beats and find someone with even more personality to sing overtop of them.” – Exclaim!
