Schacke Klub Navsegda
84/100. Schacke's love dedication to the russian club scene. He made these tracks during his residency at Klyb (sput won't
let me enter the cyrillic), a club in Saint Petersburg, and he really wears that influence on his sleeve. From the lightening-
fast beats to the earworm synth lines, this ep is simply just fun. And Kisloty People is easily one of the best tracks of the
year. Top tier.

Carla dal Forno Look Up Sharp
75/100. Distant, frosty, yet undeniably intimate. In spite of the cold palette dal Forno draws on, her songs brim with vulnerability and emotion.While some might be tired of the coldwave aesthetic, I think dal Forno does the sound justice and provides her own unique take on it. Recommended track: So Much Better, I'm Conscious, Took a Long Time.

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
98/100. Probably the best pop album I've ever heard. 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.
