Nina Kraviz stranno stranno. neobjatno.
90/100. Really love this. Intimate and seductive with an ominous mood. Dance to this one alone with the lights off.

Patricia Heavy Merging
74/100. This is a very nice complement to 2018's Free Lunch EP; whereas last year's release had a heavier emphasis on the snare and hi hats, Heavy Mering features a far more subdued and under-the-surface mood. The tracks here sound dark and dismal, and ooze a sinister tone. Close your eyes and you'll feel like you're melting with this one.

Mac DeMarco Here Comes The Cowboy
64/100. An inconsistent album that has just enough great tracks to save it from being completely forgettable. Nobody, All of Our Yesterdays, Heart to Heart, K, On the Square and Preoccupied are all terrific tracks that are definitely worth checking out (the rest is pretty meh). While these highlights are enough to warrant a favorable score from me, I totally understand the disappointment of others (although I think some are being a bit harsh) and agree with a lot of the criticism that's already been said. Hopefully the next album will be something of a comeback.

Robyn Honey
92/100. Probably the best pop album I've heard in quite some time. I love the subtle progressions, the low-key vibe, and Robyn's playful yet tender vocals; while "Missing U" is definitely the stand out track on first listen, each play through has revealed the brilliance of the rest of the tracklist, demonstrating the depth of emotion and sounds that Robyn brings to this record.

AL-90 Murmansk-60
75/100. Spectral-grey outsider house from Russian producer AL-90. Love the aesthetic on this, but at times, that feels like there really is to offer. Not that that is necessarily a bad thing--- I can appreciate a piece of music for its aesthetic offerings, just like I can a film or literary piece. It does however hold this back from being something special. Check this out if you like lofi leftfield house!

Warthog Warthog II
67/100. Raw and blood-pumping punk music from NYC punks Warthog. While this release is incredibly short, the energy is there from start to finish, making the EP a worthy listen.
