Disclosure - Offline Dexterity

Disclosure - Offline Dexterity

Squarepusher has a lot to answer for. In the mid 90's, he made subtle, arty dance music a force to be reckoned with, "Feed Me Weird Things" demonstrating to the world that dance music didn't...

Hilltop Hoods - State of the Art

Hilltop Hoods - State of the Art

Sky Larkin - Kaleide

Kaleide by Sky Larkin is quite a good album. It's not a great album, and it's not a bad album, it's just quite good. And, to be honest, I don't really know what else to...

Sleigh Bells - Treats

Sleigh Bells - Treats

Sleigh Bells sound exactly like absolutely nothing you've never ever heard before. Sleigh Bells are pop taken to a conclusion that is simultaneously the most logical and the most insane. Guitars jangle and scream over...

Chrome Hoof - Crush Depth

Chrome hoof are... eccentric doesn't quite cover it. They seem to specialise in sounding like every out-of-left-field band you've ever heard of, switching between deranged disco, whacked out space-prog noodlings, synthesised rave-alongs and straight up...
