TChandra - Transportation EPs Music Album Reviews

Perhaps familiar from being sampled by the Avalanches, this New York tween was an inspiring underground star in the early 1980s, a reputation confirmed by this archival collection.
When the Avalanches returned in 2016 after an absence of nearly two decades, a sampled koan lurked at the heart of “Subways,” their swooning comeback: “You walk on the subway/It moves around.” The voice belongs to Chandra Oppenheim, a veteran of the New York downtown scene who attended New York Dolls shows, rubbed elbows with Madonna, opened for Laurie Anderson, played the Mudd Club, staged performance art pieces at the Kitchen, and performed with her band on “Captain Kangaroo.” Not bad for a tween: Chandra was just 12 when she and her band of the same name cut “Subways” and three other songs for a now-coveted 1980 EP.

Dell XPS 13 (9370) vs Dell XPS 13 (9380)

Can Dell make its XPS 13 laptop any better? Well it's tried with a new 2019 model so we compare the two and explain what has and hasn't changed.
Should I Buy The Dell XPS 13 9370 (2018) Or Dell XPS 13 (2019)?
There’s a new XPS 13 in town but you’ll struggle to justify the upgrade from 2018’s model with namely a new webcam as a headline upgrade.
Sure, there are other upgrades to the the core specs but for most people, these will be fairly insignificant. The inclusion of a cheaper Core i3 model is particularly interesting.

Lenovo Yoga 920 Review

With outstanding battery life and an accomplished design, the Lenovo 920 is one of the best laptops of the year
Should I Buy The Lenovo Yoga 920?
The Lenovo Yoga 920 is an excellent hybrid laptop. It has amazing battery life, great build, good looks, real power and a high-quality screen with a pressure sensitive stylus.
What’s not to like? It’s not great for gaming, and a few similarly slim laptops now have discrete graphics. Display brightness could be higher too and it would be good to see the 4K option come to the UK. However, as that will also come with a higher price we can’t honestly say we’d necessarily recommend it over this model.

LG Gram 15 (2018) Review

The perfect laptop for travel includes performance, battery life, connectivity and a lightweight design. The new LG gram 15 for 2018 has it all but at a serious cost.
Should I Buy The LG Gram 15 (2018)?
The LG gram 15 might look and feel the same as before but comes with a number of upgrades including 8th-gen Intel, more storage, a fingerprint scanner and Thunderbolt 3. It's amazingly light and offers excellent battery life too. However, all of this comes at a very high price (especially in the UK) and you can get similar packages at much lower cost with laptops like the Microsoft Surface Laptop and Lenovo Yoga 920.

The Chainsmokers - Sick Boy Music Album Reviews

Trading away the dance-pop trifles of their hits for a faceless stylistic shuffle, the duo seems to be tiring of itself, too.
We’re going to be stuck with the Chainsmokers forever. Though the unctuous duo of Drew Taggart and Alex Pall are probably not destined for decades of unqualified success, their insipid spin on EDM’s big-money boom has become as much an eye-rollingly omnipresent part of our national fabric as “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Most living humans in the Western world have likely had the unfortunate sensation of having a Chainsmokers hit stuck in their head, as gross as gum on a hot bus seat; after all, their Coldplay collaboration, “Something Just Like This,” seems made only to ooze from department-store speakers for eternity. There’s even a goddamn feature-length film based on the M83-aping “Paris” in development. Like so many modern American atrocities, the Chainsmokers are just something we’re going to have to endure.
