album review: voices, phantogram

Eloise Baker
No comments

  Released late February, Phantogram’s Voices evokes a warning or premonition, with its soaring synths, determined vocals, sharp hip-hop beats and the frequent themes of death, stars, love and dreams. Similar to the Nine Inch Nails album The Fragile, it makes you feel as though you are moving even when you’re not. A complex and…

album review: a brief introduction to unnatural light years, oliver wilde

Marissa Paine
No comments

The first sounds we hear on Oliver Wilde’s A Brief Introduction to Unnatural Light Years are pulsating vibrations, closely followed by delicate instrumentals, after which Oliver’s voice fills the spaces these sounds are creating. The lyrics are languid and the track, called ‘Curve (Good Grief)’ is a pretty good indicator of what’s to come. Previously…

I’ve got to be honest with you: when I get album review requests, I end up ignoring most of them. It’s not because I don’t think there’s good music out there begging to be reviewed (there’s a lot of good music out there, period), it’s really just more of a timing thing. PR companies typically…

album review: class actress, rapprocher

lip magazine
No comments

Synthpop trio Class Actress’ Rapprocher opens in much the same way as it continues—with a throbbing, synthetic beat over which Elizabeth Harper gently croons.  Harper’s breathy vocals complement the seemingly discordant electro elements of her tracks, and thus the album holds together in an unexpected way. The result is pleasant and undemanding listening.  Rapprocher’s mesh…
