Kevin Morby - Oh My God Music Album Reviews

Morby’s spare fifth solo album conjures memories of Bob Dylan’s gospel-phase. The songs are lovingly performed but begin to fade into indistinguishable.
Across four solo albums (and turns in bands like Woods and the Babies), Kevin Morby has always worn his influences on his sleeve. Or record sleeves if you will: Depending on your Ikea shelf space or online playlists, one might hear throughlines to Bob Dylan’s Blonde on Blonde and Leonard Cohen’s New Skin for the Old Ceremony, the rock-as-savior gestures of Spiritualized and Springsteen. Or maybe you hear Lou Reed, Nick Cave, Randy Newman, and the War on Drugs instead. Depending on the line and moment, Morby can deftly emulate all of the above. The more you appreciate this rock canon, the more likely that Morby hit some of your sweet spots. Even when it came to covering the feral punk of the Germs, Morby found a way to make “Caught in my Eye” sound like a lost Dylan cut.

DJ Nate - Take Off Mode Music Album Reviews

As he returns to the intricate polyrhythms and hypnotic vocal chops of footwork, the Chicago producer’s approach remains almost single-minded in its focus.
The first thing that many outside Chicago’s footworking community ever heard from its native son DJ Nate was “Hatas Our Motivation,” a dizzying track in which the titular phrase, gravelly and defiant, looped ad nauseum over rapid-fire drum machine as brooding synths and pitched-down vocal samples churned ominously underneath. It was 2010, and Nate, just 20 years old, was the first footwork artist to sign to Planet Mu, a UK label better known for jewel-toned IDM. To outsiders, it sounded like a hole had opened in the earth’s crust, exposing some heretofore undiscovered gyroscopic contraption swiveling below. Four months before Planet Mu’s compilation Bangs & Works Vol. 1 shone an international spotlight on the Chicago footwork scene, it was Nate’s intricate polyrhythms and hypnotic vocal chops that first captured the radical stra…

Club Night - What Life Music Album Reviews

The Oakland quintet’s debut album is a spirited indie-emo blend driven by intricate underlying themes, channeling a slew of influences even as it exists in a space of its own.
To Club Night, dystopia is just an arm’s reach away. On their full-length debut What Life, the band ensconce this sense of foreboding in snappy, math-rock-inspired melodies and whimsical instrumentation. Frontman Josh Bertram, as an unabashed fan of ’90s emo cult icons Cap’n Jazz, cites Tim Kinsella as a personal mentor. What Life is crisper and more clear-cut than Cap’n Jazz’s sole album, trading Kinsella’s screamy grit for the vivacious spirit of Los Campesinos! At various points, Club Night evoke the splendor of The World Is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Die, the freaky jubilance of Architecture in Helsinki, and the twinkling fuzz of early Now, Now.

Jackie Mendoza - LuvHz EP Music Album Reviews

The Mexican American electro-pop artist’s debut EP, produced with Panda Bear collaborator Rusty Santos, is a restless patchwork of genre-smashing sounds.
Jackie Mendoza has packed a lot of life into 26 years. She’s been a resident of Mexico, California, and New York. She’s created two minor pop hits with “Islands” and “La Luz.” And now, with the release of her debut EP LuvHz, she’s worked with one of avant-indie’s oddest producers, Rusty Santos (who worked on Panda Bear’s latest, Buoys). That collective experience could have fed into a pop project defined by a strong sensibility and pointed perspective on the world. Instead, LuvHz is aimless.
