Youth Lagoon: Wondrous Bughouse Album Review

Trevor Powers doesn't come off as older and wiser than his 23 years: just look at any picture of him, with his slight build and cherubic mop of curls, or take one listen to his nasal, keening voice. Likewise, his heartfelt 2011 debut <i>The Year of Hibernation</i> dealt more in truth and honesty than …

Waxahatchee: Cerulean Salt Album Review

Last year's <i>American Weekend</i>, Katie Crutchfield's piercing debut as Waxahatchee, got passed around like a secret. On the surface, it was a modest record-- 11 lo-fi acoustic songs written and recorded in the span of a week while snowed in at her parents' neighborless Alabama home near the body of …

Various Artists: Spring Breakers OST Album Review

Harmony Korine's <i>Spring Breakers</i> was a media phenomenon before anybody had seen so much as a promotional still.

Consider 'N Sync's 2001 hit "Pop", a defensive track co-written by Justin Timberlake that takes aim at boy-band haters. "All that matters is that you recognize that it's just about respect," he sings. The song was on 'N Sync's final album, <i>Celebrity</i>, which sold nearly two million copies in the U.S. …

Goldie: The Alchemist: The Best of Goldie 1992-2012 Album Review

There was a point in the late 90s where it looked like Clifford Price, aka Goldie, might be the first dance music artist to become a full-on mainstream megastar. With rock music in its post-Cobain slump and hip-hop’s bling period in full swing, some people were certain that pop music’s next messiah …

The Knife: Shaking the Habitual Album Review

In the seven years since <i>Silent Shout</i>, the Knife's mythology has grown to the point where the Swedish duo seem like something other than a band. "Band” implies people banging on things widely agreed upon as instruments and making things that most people would recognize as "music"-- this feels like …
