Schoolboy Q - CrasH Talk Music Album Reviews

The L.A. rapper’s latest is comforting if not entirely exciting. It finds Q and host of guests in a good place with nothing to prove.
Schoolboy Q has been branded a hip-hop party animal, though now the party is less “weed and brews” and more wine and cheese. In rap, few things are feared like turning 30 years old, but Q is 32 and embracing his Saturn Return—he hits the golf course daily and deserves rap’s father of the year trophy. He is in the midst of a less extreme Snoop Dogg-like transition: once a premier voice in gangsta rap and now a West Coast uncle beloved by all generations. CrasH Talk is the L.A. rapper’s first album since 2016’s Blank Face LP, and as he’s currently in a good place with nothing to prove, it’s an upbeat entry into the music of his 30s.

Bosch Indoor Climate Starter Kit Review

There are loads of smart heating systems, so why choose the Bosch Indoor Climate Starter Kit? We investigate in our full review.
Should I Buy The Bosch Indoor Climate Starter Kit?
We're impressed with how easy it is to set up and use this smart home system, plus there's integration with Alexa and Philips Hue.
However, with only two radiator valves and one window sensor, the kit will be too limited and too expensive for a lot of potential customers. Buy it for convenience, not money saving.

Sharon Van Etten - Remind Me Tomorrow Music Album Reviews

On her fifth album, Sharon Van Etten conjures tempests and explores their subsequent calms. It is the peak of her songwriting and her most atmospheric, emotionally piercing album to date.
Sharon Van Etten returns at the time of year meant for streamlining: Kondo-ing your frazzled mind, dysfunctional relationships, and sloppy habits into one efficient machine. Remind Me Tomorrow is not a product of this mindset. Just look at the mess on the cover: a tiny photograph of Van Etten barely visible amid the chaos of a kid’s bedroom. It’s an album made after she thought she had let music go for a while, until it crept back in as a reliable constant while she started acting and scoring films, studied for a degree in psychology, embraced a fulfilling relationship, and became a parent. A lesser artist would find a cheap fulfillment narrative in all this. Van Etten characterizes these complicated pleasures as a tempest, and it feels true.

Buke and Gase - Scholars Music Album Reviews

On their first album in six years, the experimental pop duo (mostly) puts down their namesake instruments to fold more electronic elements into their potent songs.
Buke and Gase are often billed as an experimental pop act, a tag that has more to do with their inputs than their output. More than a decade ago, Arone Dyer and Aron Sanchez designed the instruments from which they take their name—a bass ukulele (Buke) and a guitar-bass hybrid (Gase). More recently, they've crafted “the Arx,” a multi-instrument electronic control system that sounds awesome and sounds awesome. Still, on Scholars, their third proper LP and first in almost six years, they sashay into a familiar lineage of deconstructed, bold pop alongside the likes of Dirty Projectors and Braids, bands folding ingenious electronic elements into potent, acoustic-centered songs. The pair built these dozen colossal tunes by jamming and chipping away at their most ecstatic improvisations until the most powerful snippets with th…

Christoph De Babalon - Hectic Shakes EP Music Album Reviews

The German producer tests the balance of bleak ambience and diamond-tipped breakbeats on an introspective EP that remains true to his own idiosyncratic style.
A faraway foghorn calls out a warning in the first minute of Christoph De Babalon’s new EP, Hectic Shakes. The air is thick with echoes of “Opium,” the veteran German producer’s 15-minute opener to his 1997 opus If You’re Into It, I’m Out of It, which got a fitting reissue last year. Two decades on, he restages its theatrics for a more distracted generation: the dense atmospherics of the five-and-a-half-minute “Harakiri” are intermittently sliced open, spilling jungle’s glistening entrails into the gloom. (The track’s title is another word for seppuku, the Japanese form of ritual suicide by disembowelment.) Back in the late 1990s, when a dozen imported and home-grown permutations of house, trance, and techno ruled the main rooms of many European clubs, jungle and drum ’n’ bass were often viewed as the murkier alternative. In the …

Dua Saleh - Nūr EP Music Album Reviews

The debut EP from the Sudan-born, Twin Cities-based singer, poet, and activist reveals an artist with a warm, sophisticated sound and captivating presence on the mic.
Dua Saleh’s first language was Arabic, but they’ve been speaking English for so long that it’s begun to slip away. That detail is, simply, true; it’s also the kind of character note—specific and a little bit sad—that might pop up in one of their songs, which tend to deal with issues of social posture, identity, and heritage in short, impressionistic bursts. Their debut EP, Nūr—that’s “light” in Arabic, as well as a common gender-neutral name—is a superb show of control, lean except when it decides to lash out.

iRobot Roomba 980 Review

The iRobot Roomba 980 is one of the most powerful robot vacuums we've ever tested, but its smart features are lagging behind
Should I Buy The iRobot Roomba 980?
Between seriously powerful suction, a HEPA filter, and the two-hour battery this is one of the best robot vacuums around for sheer cleaning - except in the corners where the round design won’t reach.
The problem is simply that it’s lagging behind slightly in smart features, while simultaneously omitting many of the manual controls that other brands continue to offer. Oh, that and the fact that it sounds a bit like a jet engine taking off.

Deerhunter - Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared? Music Album Reviews

Though the band is now squarely in its pop era, the nostalgia that laced its early records has morphed into a timely, fatalistic vision of the future and national decay.
By 2015, Bradford Cox had grown weary of the nostalgia that suffused Deerhunter’s early records. “When I was young, foggy nostalgia was such a part of my shtick. That pink haze of nostalgia and boyhood,” he said in an interview before the release of the band’s seventh LP, Fading Frontier. “Now I just wanna be around adults... I’m not as interested in the pink fog of nostalgia.” On the band’s eighth album, Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared?, that feeling has perceptibly intensified.

Malibu Ken - Malibu Ken Music Album Reviews

Teaming with the playful producer Tobacco, Aesop Rock has a joyous playdate with his overlooked senses of humor and storytelling.
Aesop Rock has always been funny, though listeners could be forgiven for not noticing. Anybody who raps this often about cats doesn’t lack for self-awareness. But between the claustrophobic production, the miserablist worldview, his imposing delivery, and the sheer density of his wordplay, his music scans as dead-serious even when it drips with pitch-black humor. He’s funny, sure, but he’s a lot of other things first.

Steve Mason - About the Light Music Album Reviews

The infamous Beta Band frontman could have lingered in the shadow of his cult-figure fandom; instead, on his fourth solo album, he sings directly about the long process of growing up.
Following the Beta Band’s unceremonious end in the mid-2000s, lead singer Steve Mason seemed destined to exist as a cult figure; like many shadowy eccentrics, his outré musical achievements had become intertwined with a history of mental-health struggles. But since releasing his 2010 solo debut, Boys Outside, Mason has upended the stereotype with increasing emotional clarity and political bluntness, suggesting a sincere desire to connect where his former band confounded. In the middle of writing his 2016 release, Meet the Humans, Mason relocated from his isolated outpost in the Scotland woods of Fife to Brighton. He’s since found a partner and become a dad. Back then, Mason quipped his next record would be his “Brighton Album,” reflecting his newfound stability. With About the Light, he keeps that promise…

Glass Movie Review

The surprise sequel to Split and Unbreakable is as tonally uneven as James McAvoy's multiple personalities, but there's fun to be had in Glass's off-kilter thrills
Should I Buy Glass Movie?
Glass is unquestionably the worst film in this quasi-trilogy, and a disappointing misstep for Shyamalan after what felt like a return to form.
The balance of screen time is all over the place, the tone veers around wildly, and the plot gives nonsense a bad name, but it’s certainly never dull. There’s a fun time to be had here, but superhero movies have moved on since 2000 and Shyamalan seems stuck in the past.

JBL Link View Review

Smart displays add a visual element to a smart speaker, but the JBL Link View still has a strong focus on audio prowess. But it's not flawless as you'll find out in our review.
Should I Buy The JBL Link View?
If you want a smart display with the best sounding audio then the JBL Link View is the one for you.
It’s almost too loud, in fact, but that’s maybe a good problem to have. You also get a camera for video calls. Google’s software still needs some work, but that’s the case on rival smart displays with the firm’s Assistant.
The main issue is whether you’re happy to pay more than rival smart displays.

Lenovo Smart Clock Review: Hands-on

Does your alarm clock need to be smart? The Lenovo Smart Clock makes a surprisingly good argument for it - here's why it impressed us at CES 2019
Should I Buy The Lenovo Smart Clock?
The Smart Clock is pretty simple, but from our brief demo it seemed well implemented and easy to use. Most importantly, at $80 it’s not all that much more than the regular Home Mini - and much less than Amazon’s Echo Spot - making it all too easy to justify the jump from smart speaker to smart clock.

Trent Reznor/Atticus Ross - Bird Box (Abridged) Original Score Music Album Reviews

The soundtrack institution of Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross return to their well of ominousness and employ an array of techniques to convey anxiety, impending danger, and discomfort.
Starting with 2008’s sprawling collection of instrumental work Ghosts I-IV (released under the Nine Inch Nails aegis) and accelerating with 2010’s Oscar-winning score for David Fincher’s The Social Network, the instrumental side of Trent Reznor has effectively shared equal billing with the more traditional industrial rock that made him a superstar. Never one for half measures, Reznor clearly sees the film-soundtrack work done alongside his longtime composing partner Atticus Ross as a chance to flex. “We aim for these to play like albums that take you on a journey and can exist as companion pieces to the films and as their own separate works,” Reznor wrote recently. He’s not kidding: The duo’s score for Fincher’s 2011 film The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, for instance, is 15 minutes longer than the movie it…

Kelman Duran - 13th Month Music Album Reviews

The Dominican producer pulls inspiration from a South Dakota Indian Reservation.
The first time the Dominican producer Kelman Duran was asked to DJ a party, he opened his set with “Suicidal Thoughts,” the harrowing closer from Notorious B.I.G.’s Ready to Die wherein Biggie rhymes about wanting “to just slit my wrists and end this bullshit,” then ends the song with a loud gunshot. As an integral part of Los Angeles’ renowned Rail Up parties, Duran’s sets have turned decidedly more festive, drawing from the Afro-Caribbean diaspora, while making those riddims through a haze of reverb and delay. With his 2017 debut, 1804 Kids, Duran showed a knack for low-slung reggaetón, with “6 De La Mañana” becoming a party anthem of sorts. But with his follow-up, 13th Month, Duran forgoes crowd-pleasers for the most part. You can still hear dembow, hip-hop and dancehall—even bits of South African gqom and Lisbon’s batida—but now Duran shoves them far away from the sunshine and good times to the most bo…

Lenovo Smart Tabs Review: Hands-on

Can Lenovo's Smart Tabs rival Amazon's own Fire tablets and charging dock combo, or are these tablets just not smart enough? We went hands-on at CES 2019 to find out
Should I Buy The Lenovo Smart Tabs?
The Smart Tabs are ultimately fairly budget tablets - especially when you consider the included cost of the dock. Lightweight specs and a simple feature set make sure these would never stand out if it weren’t for the included dock.
The problem is simply that Lenovo didn’t get here first. Amazon did with its Fire tablets, and with the added bonus that you can buy extra Show Mode Docks for different rooms - versatility that Lenovo simply doesn’t offer - though Lenovo's has the bonus of a built-in speaker and support for YouTube.

Glamoriser Blue Smart Straightener Review

The Glamoriser Blue Smart Straightener connects to your phone via Bluetooth, making it the world's first app-connected hair straightener. We try it out to see if this added connectivity is any good or just gimmick.

Pom Pom - Untitled II Music Album Reviews

On their second major outing for a label other than their own, the eternally enigmatic producer uses frantic EBM and lurid synths to cast a shadow as dark and deep as their reputation.
Before Burial stepped out of the rain-slicked darkness or Redshape donned his corny red plastic mask, Pom Pom anonymously churned out brute, functionalist techno for their eponymous label, one untitled, unmarked, all-black 12" at a time. Since 2001, long before mystery artists were a fetishized entity and favored marketing strategy in electronic music, Pom Pom have issued 50-plus releases. The facelessness of the operation—along with the outward interchangeability of the releases themselves, without cover art, titles, or even center stickers—has made Pom Pom feel like a metonym for techno itself. The onomatopoeic alias doesn’t hurt.

T-Rextasy - Prehysteria Music Album Reviews

The New York band’s jangly indie pop is more ambitious than before, but their lyrics too often fail to move beyond low-stakes camp—hardly the radical liberation the band has hinted at delivering.
No matter what advice you could give your younger self in retrospect, growing up was always going to suck. Navigating those adolescent years—particularly middle school, the tour de force of puberty, rejection, and angst—is key to figuring yourself out. New York four-piece T-Rextasy write indie-pop cheers for tackling that preteen insecurity. It’s a natural inclination, given that the band formed during its final year of high school. But on their sophomore LP, Prehysteria, T-Rextasy are too busy emphasizing cliches to leave room for wit or insight—traits that strengthen camp when flexed a little more subtly.

Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith - Tides: Music for Meditation and Yoga Music Album Reviews

Music for yoga may be an ambient cliche, but the Los Angeles synthesizer musician largely avoids new-age pitfalls on this album of unabashedly functional background music.
To make beautiful music to chill out to is a simple concept. But those simple things can prove the most beguiling. A quick scan of ambient music in the 2010s reveals a cornucopia of immersive headtrips, icy expanses, sorrowful collages, high-concept inversions, and no small amount of kosmische synths, yet an album of light-as-a-feather music for yoga still scans as a bit gauche. One imagines digital djembes, sappy flutes, and seashore cover art staring you down from the CD rack at a local health-food co-op. New age’s earnestness was both its greatest asset and its Achilles’ heel, spurring artists to radical spiritual goals while often blinding them to their own corniness. But on Tides: Music for Meditation and Yoga, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith keeps things in check. Commissioned in 2013 by her mother as background music fo…

Nedarb - AMITY Music Album Reviews

The California-based producer, instrumental to the rise of emo-rap, offers a solid showcase of his talent that maps a constellation of strange and unforgettable artists.
To start with, the Saetia sweatshirt. On the cover of Amity, Nedarb Nagrom is wearing the mythic proto-screamo band’s merch, and their logo is dead center. Someone on their Instagram account posted a screenshot of his cover, saying, “I wonder if he has ever heard of us.” It’s a reasonable ask of a young producer about a band 20 years defunct that rarely played shows to more than 50 people. But for Nedarb, it’s no surprise.

The Withings Activité is a stunning watch, the most attractive we've seen by a long shot. The design and build is exquisite and you can quickly glance at your daily steps progress. Other information is provided by the app and we like the sound of an eight month battery life. While it's good to know Android support and tracking for swimming is on the way, the Activité isn't a sure buy. The price is high and there are a few things missing such as a heart rate monitor, elevation tracking and any form of backlight.

Talk Talk - Spirit of Eden Music Album Reviews

Each Sunday, Pitchfork takes an in-depth look at a significant album from the past, and any record not in our archives is eligible. Today, we revisit the masterful, groundbreaking sound that laid the foundation for post-rock.
The timbre, amplitude, frequency, and duration of every note on Spirit of Eden tell a great, sad story of pop music, a war of art and commerce that birthed a new genre in its wake. Its breadth and scope are intimidatingly large: Silence is as important as tone, stasis is as important as movement. Inky chord progressions resolve into mystery, and lyrics leave only afterimages. The emptiness of its first two minutes allows you to adjust to the dim light of an album recorded in almost complete darkness. Then it just glows.

It may sound cliché to compare the MateBook 13 to the MacBook Air, but it’s hard not to. With such similar designs there’s little to tell the laptops apart on aesthetics, and as soon as you look at the internals Huawei’s laptop pulls sharply ahead.
The only real compromises are on webcam picture quality and potentially battery life, though the latter could be a dealbreaker for anyone seriously considering switching from San Cupertino.

Saint Mela - first bloom Music Album Reviews

On spirited songs that shift eagerly among pop, hip-hop, rock, and soul, the voice of standout singer Wolf Weston emerges as a stirring new instrument.
Wolf Weston is the dynamo singer of the restless New York pop quartet Saint Mela. Across the 13 tracks of her band’s debut album, first bloom, her voice sears and smolders and yearns. The quartet tinkers with genre, moving among traces of rap, pop, and wailing rock, often within the same tune. But Weston’s voice is striking no matter what the rest of Saint Mela does, imbuing every note with a pulse-quickening urgency, like a direct shot of adrenaline.
