Drinks – Hippo Lite

27-Jul-18

★★☆☆☆ = Eh, fine What’s it sound like? Bare indie art rock Thoughts I like it, backended with simple guitar chords or melodies, the album seems to float through a variety of ideas. Vocals typically repeat a catchy mantra of some sort. Deliberately strange, the album gets a little tired and pretentious towards the end, […]

Karen O adds a good element lyrically […]

⭐⭐⭐ What’s it sound like? Indie rock. Big and anthemic at times, like a poor man’s Arcade Fire imitating Bruce. Thoughts There’s a bunch of good tracks on here and this band shows promise. They’ve got a knack for writing pop songs but I couldn’t help but think the lyrics felt topically limited, as if […]

Parquet Courts – Human Performance

19-Mar-18

⭐⭐⭐ I really like this band and support their style of punk, owing a lot to 80s influences like the replacements and feelies. Lyrically it has a well-read feel that I find is missing with today’s lyricists. I can see spending more time with this album and liking it more in time, definitely a band […]
