Grizzly Bear came back after five years of break. While their previous LP, Shields, was a marvel full of imaginative and sophisticated compositions, Painted Ruins were expected to deliver pretty much the same. But let's be clear. It did not.

Vince Staples' new LP Big Fish Theory is a dark, mysterious, bass-filled, massive accomplishment, despite it's only 36 minutes long. And it's rapper's sophomore album. Not every 24-year-old records an LP this sophisticated. American rapper managed to mix really dark and heavy music with an atmosphere straight from 1997's synths. You can hear The Prodigy here, as well as … Continue reading Vince Staples – Big Fish Theory

Sometimes I have a feeling I'm no longer listening to Timber Timbre, but to young alternative universe version of Bob Dylan with dreamy synths (Velvet Gloves & Spit). Or just electronica-inspired I'm Not There soundtrack. Or mellow Arcade Fire/David Bowie (Grifting). Or Leonard Cohen (Western Questions)?! Or dreamy, contemplative Bruce Springsteen? Either way, Sincerely, Future Pollution … Continue reading Timber Timbre – Sincerely, Future Pollution
Do not be mistaken, this is an experimental album. Which shouldn't be a surprise given Arca's career. But it's different from his previous LPs. It's much more personal, subtle, delicate, intimate with all of its peculiarity. It seems like Gharsi became vulnerable, creating music that's moving and as forceful as it can get, without incomprehensible collages … Continue reading Arca – Arca

Unfortunately, we're still waiting for a record that'll be as good as Seventh Tree.

And oh my, the beginning is … Continue reading Goldfrapp – Silver Eye

As a whole, Spirit may be Depeche Mode's best album since Violator. But does that make it a magnificent achievement? I'm not sure. It's also a political statement, which tries to be relevant, and sometimes it succeeds, but it doesn't feel as sincere as it should. It's like treating Lady Gaga as the queen of alternative music. It … Continue reading Depeche Mode – Spirit
