Gesaffelstein – Novo Sonic System

“The release is a six-track effort that incorporates the prolific producer’s most beloved sonic tropes—menacing, static instrumentals wrapped up into dystopian analog techno. Unlike the star-studded full-length LP from earlier this spring, which featured the likes of Pharrell, The Weeknd, and HAIM, NOVO SONIC SYSTEM, finds Gesaffelstein alone in the void, offering near-perfect additions to his catalog of brooding warehouse-ready techno.” – Website of Everything

DIIV – Deceiver

“The band’s third album, Deceiver, incorporates the crunchy palette of grunge into their usual reverb-hazed shoegaze soundscapes. Smith’s soft, sighing vocals are still pure dream pop, but now he borrows his distorted riffs and loud-quiet-loud structures from alt-rock.” – Exclaim!

Angel Olsen – All Mirrors

“With All Mirrors, Angel Olsen delivers a body of work for pained introverts who have weathered the internal storm, finally seeing (and accepting) the light and shadow in themselves and in life. At the end of the 11 tracks, Olsen stands bare and tall, accompanied by such a full-bodied orchestration that each song seems to be of biblical proportions. All Mirrors is a successful example of how being bold and staying true to yourself pays off.” – Consequence Of Sound

Hoodboi – Sahara EP

“Hoodboi continues to curate soulful, hybrid vibes on the new Sahara EP. From the title track’s sunrise-worthy piano riffs to the earworm hooks of “Water Runs Dry” featuring Dirty Radio and energetic, club-ready closer “Higher,” Sahara is Hoodboi taking his house-inspired sound to new elevations.” – Fools Gold Records

vōx – I Am Not A God EP

“Her live shows leave you with that same feel-good feeling as say, listening to Lizzo, only sonically entirely different. Performatively, her live shows exist in the same theatrical plane as Kate Bush and Sia, via Björk, with the artist delicately contorting herself into strange and stretched-out poses, as the stage light shines through her many layers, leaving her as exposed as the lyrics of the songs she sings.” – Dazed

National Service – Meltwater EP

“Recorded at Saccharine Studios in Woolwich, a building which simply adds to the atmosphere, over five days in March 2019. These sessions proceeded under the watchful ears of John Bisset, keyboardist/producer of Calluna fame, to say Meltwater is ambitious would be selling it lightly, this is a band honing their craft already but also, and most importantly, learning, expanding and inventing from the beginning.” – Critical Popcorn
