Poliça – When We Stay Alive

“There’s a depth here that is surprising considering how sparse and barely-there everything seems to be. Arrangements are at times skeletal, only really gaining flesh on the bones when really necessary. If Leaneagh appears to be wispy vocally, then it’s worth noting that the emotional heft of the subjects and the personal content that she covers puts a surprising amount of flesh on the bones of these songs. It’s also a testament to the strength and willpower of Channy Leaneagh. When We Stay Alive is an illusion of a record but, once explored, an apparently endless labyrinth unfurls.” – Music OMH

Dan Deacon – Mystic Familiar

“The Baltimore based artist has released and produced a variety of EP’s, soundtracks and experimental offerings but on Mystic Familiar he succeeds in combing passions and moving things slightly to a more personal tone amongst the cluttering digital world in which we all live.” – Glide Magazine

Torres – Silver Tongue

“At just nine tracks and 36 minutes, Silver Tongue runs the gamut on aural and ethereal moods, leaving Torres with one her most emotionally fulsome and satisfying records.” – Exclaim!

Recondite – Dwell

“Dwell is an indefinite, amorphous album that constantly shapes and reshapes itself. Once again, Recondite has produced an enigmatic, ruminative minimal techno album that finds him successfully reconnecting and then further exploring the sounds that he used so strikingly on Hinterland.” – Pop Matters

Gengahr – Sanctuary

“Straying from their usual dreamy alt-pop stance, with the help of Bombay Bicycle Club’s Jack Steadman on production duties, Gengahr release an album that is bold, daring and dazzling with sheer pop excellence. It packs in a full bag of human emotion eloquently and sophisticatedly. ” – The Line of Best Fit
