SOUR // Olivia Rodrigo

Olivia Rodrigo’s debut SOUR comes across as rushed and formulaic in places, but despite these pitfalls, remains heartfelt throughout.

Surrounded By Time // Tom Jones

Tom Jones’ fortieth album sees the legendary Welshman championing the sounds and influences that made him the singer he is today – culminating in an encapsulating record.

Lyrical Sample // Lyrical Strally

Lyrical Strally proves that he has the ability to stick it out alone on Lyrical Sample, a freshened version of grime that entertains throughout.

Women in Music Pt. III // HAIM

HAIM returns with their signature sound of polished pop-flavoured Indie-Rock, offering a solid track listing without reinventing themselves or the genre.

KiCk i // Arca

Arca kicks boxes into touch with this bizarre manipulation of sounds and genres, subverting the subversion of expectations in new ways.

Flight Tower // Dirty Projectors

Dirty Projectors continue their 5 EP project with a simple selection of songs closer to their roots, which don’t exactly command the same respect of their earlier work.

6pc Hot EP // 6LACK

6LACK gives us a weak offering consisting of dropped tracks and leaks, highlighting a trend towards trap-rap from one of Alternative R&B’s rising stars.

Wicked City // Jockstrap

Jockstrap return with their Warp Records debut, another showing of their art and potential in the experimental space.
