Would describe this as a flawed masterpiece. A few tracks here and there that may not stand up to the others, but the good ones make up for everything else. This album is incredibly addicting.

A good album, but as others have noticed, owes greatly to the Nation of Ulysses and Born Against.

This album remains quite endearing after all these years. A graceful and memorable post-hardcore release.

Dot Hacker Inhibition
Dot Hacker How's Your Process? (Work)
Dot Hacker How's Your Process? (Play)
Dreamier and more chaotic than the first instalment of How's Your Process; also features more acoustic instruments and an unexpected ending.
Eidola To Speak, To Listen
Foals Holy Fire
Foster the People Torches
Glad Hand Be Kind
More quirky art-pop from the group formerly known as Fun Adults. Honestly, I think I liked the Fun Adults singles more, but this ain't half bad either.

Jacob Collier In My Room
Music scattered by God, which is to say that it is occasionally godly but also scattered

Mamamoo Melting
Mark Ronson Uptown Special
Moonlight Bride Twin Lakes
Nocturnal Habits New Skin for Old Children
Paul Thomas Saunders Beautiful Desolation
Perhaps not everyone's cup of tea, but a great album for those who do get into Paul's unique vocals and the ethereal instrumentation.
