"High Life is a genuine surprise—Eno’s best vocal album in 25 years."
— Mark Richardson reviews the gorgeous new collaborative album from Brian Eno and Underworld’s Karl Hyde, our latest Best New Music pick.
"What would shoegaze sound like if it had its eyes on the sky?"
— Lindsay Zoladz reviews Sea When Absent, the latest album from genre-busting sextet A Sunny Day in Glasgow—and a Best New Music pick.
"Tom Krell is informed by genre but driven by expression; in his mind, pop music is anything that aspires for the most immediate and impactful connection, even if it risks embarrassment in the process. As a result, his transcendent third LP "What Is This Heart?" is a pop album of the highest caliber."
— Ian Cohen reviews How to Dress Well’s new album, our latest Best New Music pick.
"White Lung aren’t subtle—but then again, neither is the doorman who assumes every woman with a band is either a groupie or the merch girl. Nor is your average comments section in response to just about any article posted about a female artist. Nor are the standards of physical beauty, relationship dynamics, and personal happiness promulgated by pop culture. Nor is drug addiction. Nor is the #notallmen hashtag. Nor is questioning Sky Ferreira about how much her breasts are responsible for her success, nor are authorities liable to ask ‘what were you wearing’ to every accuser of sexual assault. White Lung’s bracing third LP Deep Fantasy is a product of its environment, that environment being “the real world in 2014,” filled with people who refuse to be a part of the solution because they won’t even admit there’s a problem."
