Album artwork of 'St. Vincent' by St. Vincent

St. Vincent St. Vincent

Capturing the middle ground between passion and precision, Annie Clark’s sound here can only be described as some sort of melodic computer malfunction.

Album artwork of 'Something to Tell You' by Haim

Something to Tell You Haim

An album of inoffensive and enjoyable pop music. With strong instrumentals that step above the norm, the shiny production is actually surplus to requirements.

Album artwork of 'Masseduction' by St. Vincent

Masseduction St. Vincent

An ambitious, splintered record. Glammy schizoid pop rubs shoulders with tightly wound, rather despairing cud chewing, but the two styles never truly mesh.

Hounds of Love Kate Bush

That Bush could create something so deliriously weird and wild yet also break through to the mainstream world is great proof of her powers.

Album artwork of 'Lover' by Taylor Swift

Lover Taylor Swift

Lover isn’t as expansive as Kate Bush or as daring as St. Vincent, but it is accessible and intelligent, which are the hallmarks of Swift at her best.

To Bring You My Love PJ Harvey

Album artwork of 'Inner Song' by Kelly Lee Owens

Inner Song Kelly Lee Owens

The album is so delicate that it feels too fragile for its own good. It’s like a frozen wildflower - beautiful, but could shatter at any moment.

Album artwork of 'Daddy’s Home' by St. Vincent

Daddy’s Home St. Vincent

Annie Clark wrangles a myriad of vintage sounds and gives them a stunning contemporary sheen, but it is in service of a world unquestionably her own. David Bowie and Mia Wallace had a sweet baby girl and abandoned her in South Queens.
