Marrasmieli Between Land And Sky
It's cool pagan bm, but I never was a huge fan of this type of folk black metal (always was more of a Agalloch boi, sorry garas). It's typically the kind of stuff I understand the appeal for, but can't enjoy it as much as others. For example, I'm pretty sure peepz who enjoy this kind of bm like the flutes/violins/etc., but I usually find them cheesy and more annoying than anything. Nonetheless, these Finnish dudes managed to pull out a record I thoroughly liked despite my gripes with the genres. 3.2

Cult of Luna Cult of Luna (EP)
Take their first two albums, put a rawer production and there you go with 12 minutes of heavy sludgy riff. And even before their first album, they display for the first time this type of horrible, XBox 360 game style, artwork. One hell of an introduction, but make sure to listen to the OG version on youtube and not the polished remaster on Spotify. 3.7

Grimes Miss Anthropocene
As ethereal as we could expect, and less flowing than previous records: the tracks are more clearly separated and more distinctive too. This make a clear distinction between awesome tracks (Violence or Delete Forever for example) and really not good ones (Darkseid is shitty). At least this variety of sound is refreshing, as the album navigates between ethereal wave, guitar-led pop, 90s dnb, synthpop and dancey bops. Despite having a deliberate pop feeling, this is dark and minimalist af, and even the livelier tracks (4AM), while energetic, do not uplift the listener. What's also weird is how deconstructed t

King Krule Man Alive!
Atmospheric art rock stuff. It's just, uuuuuuh, a long journey fusing post-punk, psych shit, jazz rock and ambient. There's no clear standouts, because the album is truly constructed as one long flow. And that makes for an interesting record to analyze: the dude pours all his influences into one album, without letting any genre take over another one. All tracks have multiple influences and can't fit into a specific box. More importantly, it reveals itself after several listens: what seems obnoxious at first turns out to be obvious. However, one can't help but feel underwhelmed, as it takes quite an effort to fully plunge into it. Pedantic mof

Danny Ocean 54+1
Reggaeton, and it's not entirely shitty. I'm not as enthusiastic as Bedex, maybe because he told me it wasn't straight up radio reggaeton/latin pop, and even though it's true it has some qualities others do not have (no bad use of autotune, quite versatile instrumentation and tracks for the genre), I can't help but not enjoy this. Sorry bruv. 2.2

Noname Room 25
Ngl, this is Telefone but a tad less, everything. I can't really come up with any true argument here: stylistically and lyrically, this is in the same vein as her first mixtape. She still delivers good bars, the beats are still very chill, but I'm not as hooked as I expected. Also, by trying to understand why I liked this less than Telefone, I realized I wasn't the only one not grasping why this is not as impacting. Eh. 2.9

Lightning Bolt Sonic Citadel
One of the finest noise rock records of the past decade. While almost all noise rock bands nowadays incorporate math rock and post-hardcore influences, there still is room to differentiate yourself. Whereas You Won't Get What You Want went for the cold, mechanical and monochromatic, Fetch for the quirky and even the bizarre, Schlagenheim for the post-punk influences, Lightning Bolt delivers the most energetic and bombastic recent record of its genre. The cover art is particularly fitting: it's colourful, simplistic, yet realized with such a combination of application and devil-may-care it's simply impossible to not
