A lot of things happened in 2017. It was a year of emotions, bravery, and women's voices - sincerity, openness and reflexivity steered the way through our musical voyages, while trying to comprehend what was going on around us - globally and in our own private lives. As you can imagine, there is a great potential in such vibrant times … Continue reading The Best of 2017
Delicate electronica meets acoustic sound. It's time for reflection, rest, relax, and a little bit of dancing.
Reworked By Detroiters shows two things: (a) Funkadelic is still a great listen with a ton of potential; (b) Detroit's music culture is still an extremely interesting aesthetic with a ton of potential. I've been listening to Funkadelic since high school, and I have to admit that after a while it become bored. I thought … Continue reading Funkadelic – Reworked By Detroiters

Dark Matter proves that we don't longer listen to Randy Newman searching looking for good music, but solely for witty lyrics. And occasionally for a wonderful soundtrack. However, despite great stories, amusing wit, and undisputable charm, it lacks the overall magnificence of its predecessor. I was waiting on the edge of my seat for the first … Continue reading Randy Newman – Dark Matter

Lightness. This is what I felt while listening to Real Estate's latest LP In Mind. All of the songs you can find there are pleasantly easy-listening, but not overly simplistic. Guitars have bright, clean tone, just like every other instrument. Everything fits perfectly. Just like a perfectly nice album. An LP-next-door. It's just a pity … Continue reading Real Estate – In Mind
Yeah, ok. But what did we really expect? I mean, ok, it's nice, easy-listening, but that's all. Ed Sheeran's third studio LP ÷ lacks the artistic strengths of + and x.

Well, this LP is just great. It's full of energy, full of life, full of fun. Japandroids' latest is a garage rock went full heartland rock, or heartland rock went full garage rock. It's like listening to MC5 covering Springsteen's Dancing in the Dark. Of course, some may find it too exaggerated, anthemic or pompous, and the songs … Continue reading Album of the Week: Japandroids – Near to the Wild Heart of Life
Foxygen returns after a phase of extremely intense hype surrounding their music. I've never been a big fan of their work, but I have to admit -- Hang is something very interesting. Californians abandoned their overly psychadelic aura and transformed into theatrical art pop, which brings listeners closer to Talking Heads than to Quicksilver Messenger Service. What's … Continue reading Album of the Week: Foxygen – Hang
