★★★★ It would be easy for Tame Impala to become pigeonholed to one particular sound. The project’s two previous albums—Innerspeaker and Lonerism—have both featured heavy use of guitars and fuzz with Kevin Parker’s Lennon-esque voice seeping into the mix, establishing Tame Impala to be the psychedelic group of the moment.

The electronic-pop trio were the 2015 recipients of the prestigious BBC Sound Of… award and have had the world’s eyes on them ever since. If pop music in 2014 was Lorde, then pop music in 2015 is Years […]

★★★★ After a three-year hiatus, Miguel is back and ready to reshape how we understand 21st-century R&B. Wildheart is a truly beautiful album. The track list is diverse, and contains everything from songs of seduction right through to intensely romantic numbers, as well as songs that relate to almost unexpected elements of the human experience […]

With three EPs (Golden Revolver, Awkward, and Beach) and their self-titled debut studio album already under their belt, it’s safe to say that San Cisco is here to stay. The quartet (made up of Jordi Davieson, Josh Biondillo, Nick Gardner […]
