Review of 'Lucky Leaves' by Krill

All you bands who think it’s cool to release your album on cassette tape in 2015 aren’t thinking outside the box enough. Boston indie rockers, Krill, have made their album available on USB. That’s not all – the USB stick comes embedded in a ball of mozzarella cheese.

Review of 'Vulnicura' by Bjork

Vulnicura marks another weird and wonderful chapter in the eccentric Icelandic singer’s discography. I tried googling a definition of the album title but couldn’t find anything. Where does Bjork come up with these names?

10 Albums I'm Looking Forward to in 2015

Well done 2014. You brought us twerking. You brought us trap. You brought us Todd Terje. You brought us Taylor Swift. You were an interesting year for music, but now it is time we said goodbye and hello to 2015. Enter Kanye West. Enter Kendrick Lamar. Already, I feel you're going to be an interesting year too. Here are some of the artists' whose albums I'm getting hyped up for.

Review of 'Uptown Special' by Mark Ronson

Some people might roll their eyes at the idea of a funk album in 2015. There’s an awful lot of retro music coming out these days. Whilst there are a lot of cheap imitations, Mark Ronson’s latest full-length is a true homage carried out with soul and conviction.

Review of 'Fashion Week' by Death Grips

Fashion Week is the brand new surprise instrumental album from Death Grips – everyone’s favourite trolling experimental hip hop group who last year announced on the back of a napkin that they were breaking up. Despite disbanding, Death Grips have been continuing to put out new music. They released a single called ‘Inanimate Sensation’ in December. Now they’ve released this record. They have another half-album called Jenny Death scheduled for release soon.
