J Cole drops a surprise new single, plus there are some cracking rock tracks from Ovlov and Little Thief. Les Ailes’ intimate folk song is gorgeous and Void Comp delivers some beguiling electropop.
“A collection of profound and epic album reviews and musical articles by former astronaut and brain surgeon, Alasdair Kennedy. Reaching levels of poetry that rival Keats and Blake, the following reviews affirm Alasdair to be a prodigy, a genius and a god whose opinion is always objectively right. He is also without a doubt the most modest man in the universe.” - Alasdair Kennedy
