Neutral Milk Hotel - On Avery Island 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 oft-overshadowed debut from indie rock icons, a smaller and more intimate look into the mercurial world of Jeff Mangum.
In the mid-’90s, Jeff Mangum moved into a haunted closet in Denver where he had dreams of women in fur coats drinking champagne, yelling at him to get out of their house. During a snowy Colorado winter, the Louisiana-born songwriter and his childhood friend Robert Schneider set about recording what would become Neutral Milk Hotel’s debut album. They worked feverishly, going out to smoke cigarettes when they hit a roadblock, until, in May of 1995, they had a finished record. The North Carolina indie label Merge scooped up the young band and quietly released On Avery Island the following March.

Country Apricot Tart

This hand-shaped tart is meant to look rustic, so there's no need to fuss with crimping the edges. Just fold the cornmeal crust up and over the fruit filling and everything will be held neatly in place while it bakes.

Xiaomi Mi 9 Review

The best phone you'll find under £500. Xiaomi's Mi 9 is simply unbeatable at this price, and here's why.
Should I Buy The Xiaomi Mi 9?
One of the more significant annual updates from Xiaomi, the new Mi 9 is an incredible phone at an unmissable price. It's faster than Galaxy S10 and closer than ever in specification, so it's increasingly difficult to understand the huge difference in price.
Mi 9 introduces several design changes, including the in-display fingerprint sensor as standard, super-fast wireless (and wired) charging, a larger screen that takes up a greater proportion of the body, and a new triple-lens camera at the rear, which includes a whacking great 48Mp lens.
Performance is better, photography is better, design is better. Everything is better with the award-winning Mi 9.

Lenovo Yoga C630 WOS Review

The Lenovo Yoga C630 WOS shows that Snapdragon laptops are beginning to grow up, with a slick design and build to match the mammoth battery life and 4G connectivity. However, performance is still limited.
Should I Buy The Lenovo Yoga C630 WOS?
The Lenovo Yoga C630 is the most compelling laptop so far with Windows on Snapdragon. It's thin, light and offers excellent battery life.
You'll also benefit from 4G connectivity but the lack of performance means you'll be limited to basic tasks and, at this price, there's some tough competition from Intel rivals that makes this hard to widely recommend.

Surfshark VPN Review

Surfshark is new, competitively priced VPN service that's easy to use and well worth considering.
Should I Buy Surfshark?
Relatively new to the VPN space, Surfshark’s subscriber base is growing rapidly, and it’s not too difficult to see why. With a slick, simple interface, very competitive pricing and a good range of features, it’s one to watch and well worth considering despite some slow speeds.

RAP - EXPORT Music Album Reviews

The UK duo’s ambitious second album has an alluring and unclassifiable sound. Rarely has a hybrid of new wave and experimental electronic music led to such an introspective place.
The elements of EXPORT sound familiar, but the way they have been put together is anything but. Because the album draws from deeply rooted subgenres like dub techno, gabber, shoegaze, and post-punk, it could have been simply a record collector’s ultimate fetish object, but its ambitions extend far beyond ticking off the boxes of yesterday’s niche sounds. RAP’s Thomas Bush and Guy Gormley have joined sounds and ideas generally thought to be incompatible in ways that fundamentally deepen the mystery of each one.

M83 - Knife + Heart (Original Soundtrack) Music Album Reviews

On his third outing composing music for film, Anthony Gonzalez breaks from his own soundtracking habits with a welcome sense of playfulness.
Anthony Gonzalez has essentially been making music for movies his entire career. The widescreen pop of M83 has been effectively used in skate videos, Nicholas Sparks romances, Britney Spears documentaries, CW fairy-tale adaptations, and tear-puddled YA-novel adaptations; “Outro,” the mountain-scaling closer from the project’s massive and marvelous 2011 album Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming, has popped up in so many commercials and movie trailers that The Huffington Post once published an in-vain plea to cease syncs of the song entirely.

Vijay Iyer & Craig Taborn - The Transitory Poems Music Album Reviews

Two celebrated jazz pianists bring contrasting, complementary approaches to a set of improvised pieces that pay tribute to Cecil Taylor, Geri Allen, and other titans of the instrument.
The jazz pianists Vijay Iyer and Craig Taborn have a lot in common, at least on the surface. They’re in their late 40s. They’ve played with many of the same people, including Roscoe Mitchell, Steve Coleman, and Wadada Leo Smith. In the past decade or so, they’ve each released piano trio albums that have helped reinvigorate the tradition. They both operate in what might be described as the avant-garde. But they’re also different musicians. Iyer is mathematical at the keyboard, with a precise, percussive touch, while Taborn, who is more of a figurative thinker, gets by on suggestion and metaphor. His sound is ruminative and spacious.

Dis Fig - PURGE Music Album Reviews

The tempestuous debut by producer and vocalist Felicia Chen is an emotionally tense album that whips between violent outbursts and quiet pockets of respite
Felicia Chen is usually associated with spinning intense electronic DJ sets under the guise of Dis Fig. At one point during the recording of her debut album PURGE, Chen conveyed to her label boss, Geng, who runs the New York City-based PTP, that the vibe of the music was like anguished Portishead meeting the bass swamped tendencies of the Bug.

Comic Book Nails

Hey there! During this weekend I did my nails few times, because I couldn't decide what I want... so I would simply somehow paint my nails and then after an hour or two I would feel bored with what I was wearing... But finally I managed to do something that I was satisfied with and that stayed for more than couple of hours haha! Comic Book Nails! It was my first time doing this design and I think it looks really cool, definitely something that might catch attention. I reckon it would also look interesting with a different colour on each nail. Let me know what do you think!

Oral-B Genius 8000/9000 Review

The Oral-B Genius 8000 and Genius 9000 electric toothbrushes promise a smarter dental regime using the Oral-B smart app.
Should I Buy The Oral-B Genius 9000/8000? We were impressed with the Oral-B Genius 8000 and 9000 for many reasons: excellent plaque cleaning, comfortable brush and handle, brush-head options, travel case, and long battery life.
However, we found the app’s functionality didn’t live up to its promise. The Position Detection is a great idea, but we found it tricky to get right. When used just to advise and monitor mouth-quadrant brushing it was more successful but not as sophisticated as it thinks it is.

But as a premium electric toothbrush both the Genius 8000 and 9000 certainly live up to the hype. Neither is cheap but you can find significant discounts online, and, compared to the cost of a visit to the dentist, using a quality toothbrush is a wise financial as well as healthy decision.

Juice WRLD - Death Race for Love Music Album Reviews

Over 72 minutes, the emo-rap star explores drugs, heartbreak, and the drugs that lead to heartbreak.
Though the speed of his ascent may have felt like it, Juice WRLD didn’t just appear on hip-hop’s doorstep in 2018 in an Interscope Records-signed box with the message, “Here is the new face of rap, get used to it.” The 20-year-old Illinois rapper has been developing his style since 2015, mixing his influences into the perfect recipe: the candor of Lil Peep, the delivery of Chief Keef, and the cheap acoustic guitars of XXXTentacion. That recipe alone doesn’t explain his success; one scroll through SoundCloud reveals thousands of artists blending those same ingredients with a fraction of the success. The truth is Juice WRLD can be magnetic: One line can sound like he found an iPod where the only song that works is My Chemical Romance’s “Welcome To the Black Parade” and the very next like he just finished spinning Bang Pt. 2.

Dido - Still on My Mind Music Album Reviews

The UK goddess of lite pop still sounds serene, unbothered, and preternaturally confident.
Six years after her last album, Girl Who Got Away, and 20 years after her ubiquitous debut, No Angel, Dido’s version of pop is still most distinguishable for what it lacks: drama. The London singer may be one of the UK’s best-selling artists of all time, with her keening pop mantras “Thank You” and “White Flag” still reliable soundtracks in Tescos the nation over, but her even-keel approach feels removed from the volatile acrobatics and catharsis of Adele, Amy Winehouse, Ellie Goulding, and her other peers of the past two decades. Her songs still feel like the exhalation after all the action happens; in Dido songs, the tumult has been resolved by the time she records. Her breakup ballads simmer with loss and melancholy, but no regret or indecision; sweeping love anthems have no runway left for the chase, only snug contentment and bright promises to live up to another’s faith. What her music lacks…

William Basinski - On Time Out of Time Music Album Reviews

The ambient composer turns his attention to the skies, sourcing an epic, heart-stirring sound from gravitational waves emanated by two massive black holes that collided 1.3 billion years ago.
William Basinski’s oeuvre stretches back to the 1980s, but only in the 21st century was he finally recognized and exalted for his work. Even if the Twin Towers hadn’t fallen, Basinski’s profound music might eventually have found an audience, but within a year of its release, The Disintegration Loops—a fragile ambient set, recorded from crumbling magnetic tapes shortly before 9/11, that he paired with haunting video of Manhattan’s damaged skyline, shot from his Brooklyn rooftop—went from being a music archivist’s worst nightmare to a profound meditation on death, loss, and decay, earning Basinski his long-overdue accolades. (He’s even become meme-worthy.) In the stream of music that has followed, Basinski continues to strike a singular balance between past and present, beauty and noise, signal and …

Deli Girls - I Don’t Know How to Be Happy Music Album Reviews

The industrial noise-punk duo Deli Girls’ I Don’t Know How to Be Happy is a vengeance document built on industrial mutant rage.
There is a truism that the best revenge is a life well-lived, and maybe that works eventually, but before that there is another necessary step—a violence, a purge. Deli Girls’ second record with New York-based Sweat Equity, I Don’t Know How to Be Happy, is a vengeance document built on industrial mutant rage. Their rogues’ gallery, named without deflection, includes cops, hypocrites, fascists, and apologists. This alone is not unusual—in 2019 we know who our enemies are. The truly celebratory part is how it all unfolds.

Unexpected

Hello! This nails design was totally unexpected, but I actually like what it came out like. Yesterday I bought a neon pink nail polish and wanted to try it out. The idea that I had was just to combine pink with the black polish, but then I took a white striper and started painting random lines, creating some zig zags and this look came out of it. I'm still thinking of how to name this design, if you have any idea, please let me know!

Leapfrog LeapPad3 and LeapPad Ultra XDi Reviews

The latest Leapfrog LeapPad tablets specially built for children both offer wi-fi and a choice of 500 apps and games to buy.
Should I Buy The LeapPad3 And LeapPad Ultra XDi?
The specially built-for-kids LeapPad3 and LeapPad Ultra XDi are similar in specs and functionality. The larger, 7-inch, Ultra XDi has twice the storage as the 5-inch LeapPad 3 but younger children may prefer the 3's smaller size and weight. We think their upper-age range is six or seven rather than Leapfrog's claimed nine, but our eight-year-old tester still enjoyed her time with both. While the hardware is cheaper than normal tablets note that the software can be more expensive. The advantage of Leapfrog software is that, while not as cheap as normal mobile apps, it has been built by educational PhDs with both fun and learning in mind. With its white-list web browsing it's safer online than most adult tablets, although it's limited in its scope from that point of view. The LeapPads are bestsellers e…

Very small rangeNot fastNot practicalExpensiveThe 2019 Smart Fortwo delivers on its promises: two people, electric powertrain, and a city car. It doesn’t promise much else, though.

Sky Q Review | Sky Q 1TB And 2TB Review | Sky Q Mini Review

Sky's new premium TV service Sky Q is more than just a box, it's a whole new viewing platform built for flexibility around and outside the home.
Should I Buy The Sky Q? Sky Q is a whole new TV platform, built around flexibility of viewing both online and offline. The kit looks suitably sexy and makes the old Sky+ box look like a dinosaur. The ability to record up to four channels at once solves many of the old clashes that depressingly showed up in the old Planner listings. Would any one ever use all four channel to record while watching a fifth? I doubt it but it’s a nice option. The cheaper non-Silver Sky Q box can record three while you watch a fourth, and even that looks generous. The extra storage on the Sky Q 2TB box will be appreciated by most of us – even though it’s mostly clogged up with stuff we wished we had the time to watch. You’ll either love or loath the new Bluetooth remote, and getting used to the new controls and user interface will infuriate you until you’re …

Gesaffelstein - Hyperion Music Album Reviews

The second album by the French producer Gesaffelstein brings in big pop collaborators like Haim and Pharrell.
As Gesaffelstein, the French producer Mike Lévy has built a reputation for snarling, fiery electronic music derived from techno. In his hands, the insistent 4/4 pulse assumes a sinister shape, like “Killing Eve”’s Villanelle moving through a packed club with a shiv at the ready. For much of his career thus far, the 31-year-old has released nasty-sounding music through a small Montreal record label, but his profile skyrocketed after co-producing Kanye West’s titanic Yeezus cuts “Black Skinhead” and “Send It Up.”

Foals - Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Part 1 Music Album Reviews

The UK rockers summon all their crowd-pleasing, arena-sized ambition on the first half of a double album but lack the panache to really pull it off.
Foals’ résumé is filled with roles that now look quaint for guitar bands in 2019. They emerged on a wave of hype from the British press with a Dave Sitek-produced debut on Sub Pop, a transatlantic “hipster band” when that still meant something.

Neil Young - Dead Man Original Soundtrack Music Album Reviews

A vinyl reissue of the atmospheric guitar score for Jim Jarmusch’s 1995 film reveals a spare and intuitive performance unlike anything else Neil Young has recorded.
A few months before Jimi Hendrix unfurled the guitar fireworks of “The Star-Spangled Banner” at Woodstock, Neil Young played a hypnotic one-note guitar break inside “Cinnamon Girl,” the opening track on 1969’s Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere. Even if Young’s style never approached minimalism in the classical sense, the very idea—an anti-solo solo—conjured a textural universe that Young has been exploring ever since, most often in live jams with Crazy Horse.

Tanya Tagaq - Toothsayer EP Music Album Reviews

On a five-song EP accompanying the British National Maritime Museum’s “Polar Worlds” exhibit, the Inuk experimental musician joins landscape, culture, and resistance.
There’s an Inuktitut word, “ajunamat,” that translates to “it cannot be helped”—a concept that embodies many Inuit people’s adaptive way of living, given the unpredictable weather conditions of their homeland and hunting grounds. The researcher Tom Artiss has written that Inuit music in the 21st century lives at the intersection of ajunamat and sappulik, a word that means to “never give up.” To pair the two ideas is to join acceptance with resilience. This is certainly true of the Inuk artist Tanya Tagaq’s work. When Moravian missionaries traveled to Canada in the late 18th century, they prohibited Inuit drumming, dancing, and throat singing. Tagaq, on the other hand, fuses them with an array of contemporary styles of music, from downtempo rap to industrial rock to contemporary classical.

Sony Xperia 10 Plus Review

The Xperia 10 Plus is a solid, slender mid-range phone from Sony that’s best for film lovers. Here’s our full review
Should I Buy The Sony Xperia 10 Plus?
If you watch a lot of films and TV on your phone and want a good-performing phone with no notch then the Xperia 10 Plus is a decent mid-range option. There’s zero wow factor here, though.
It’s also quite expensive for the performance and build quality – if you’re not fussed by the odd 21:9 aspect ratio then you should save money and get the Moto G7 Plus or much more powerful Pocophone F1 instead.

Stella Donnelly - Beware of the Dogs Music Album Reviews

The Australian singer-songwriter’s debut album brings her captivating voice and keen eye to songs that demolish expectations. Fierce, funny, and unsettling, her music is empathetic to the core.
Stella Donnelly arrived on American shores with a message that cut through a noisy indie-rock landscape. In the U.S., the Perth-based songwriter’s debut was “Boys Will Be Boys,” a commanding song about rape culture that landed in the fall of 2017, just as #MeToo crescendoed. In that moment, Donnelly’s indictment of victim-blamers echoed the sentiment of the thousands of women called upon to publicly excavate their trauma. The single introduced then 25-year-old Donnelly—who already had a following and an EP (Thrush Metal, reissued in the U.S. last year) back at home—as an artist with a captivating voice and a powerful message.

Townes Van Zandt - Sky Blue Music Album Reviews

A posthumous 1973 solo album from the Texas singer-songwriter, released the week he would’ve turned 75, displays his careful sense of craft across a set of covers, favorites, and unheard songs.
Townes Van Zandt often seemed indifferent to his recording career—or anything resembling a career, really. He certainly gave the music business his best shot, traveling from his native Texas to Nashville to cut a series of albums for the tiny label Poppy between 1968 and 1972, frequently collaborating with Jack Clement, a producer who decided to ostentatiously augment the songwriter’s eccentricities instead of accentuate them. It wasn’t a winning formula commercially, and his lack of success during his only prolific period helped fate him to decades of wandering on the margins of country and Americana. Hits came for other people—Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson took “Pancho and Lefty” to the top of Billboard’s country charts in 1987—but not for Van Zandt, who wound up amassing not so much a body …

Meat Puppets - Dusty Notes Music Album Reviews

Meat Puppets’ 15th album mirrors the Kirkwood brothers’ ethos: earthy and out of time, casual and familiar, and wholly at ease with itself.
One distinct advantage Meat Puppets have over many of their ‘80s and ‘90s-vintage peers still making a go of it after more three decades is that they always kind of sounded like they were 55. There is no collectively imprinted youth to risk failing to recapture. By 1984’s immortal Meat Puppets II, they were already perfectly weathered and weird and an anathema to punk orthodoxy, finding the bridge between the Dead and the Dead Kennedys long before it was fashionable. The band was easy enough to classify as psychedelic—not in an indulgent or Day-Glo way, but in a way that suggested guzzling buckets of homemade drugs and happening upon musical instruments which they then played at whatever speed and volume felt sustainable in the moment. Their zeitgeist moment as guests of honor on 1994’s Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged in New York delivered Curt and Cris Ki…

Nick Waterhouse - Nick Waterhouse Music Album Reviews

The Southern California rocker cobbles together a pastiche of 1950s rockabilly, 1960s pop, and old-school soul. At its best, it’s a shot of pure joy, but it never quite transcends its inspirations.
“What I do has no theatricality in it,” Nick Waterhouse says in a recent fashion video for men’s fashion site Mr. Porter. It’s a curious statement to end a clip in which he wanders around a set-decorated house and explains his sartorial style as “Pacific Coast Americana,” which I think is based on the preppy kids who always got beaten up in 1960s biker flicks—the culture instead of the counterculture. That insistence that he’s not staging anything is even more curious coming from an artist who specializes in midcentury-modern rock’n’roll, a studious collision of 1950s rockabilly, ’60s pop, and old-school R&B from Memphis, New Orleans, and New York. Like JD McPherson and Eli “Paperboy” Reed, Waterhouse is a revivalist who insists he’s not a revivalist, a contradiction that extends beyond …

Hey everyone! Water marble... Wonder what it is? Keep on reading...
I've heard about this technique some time ago and finally I've decided to try it on my nails. To make it easier for you as well, I've prepared a tutorial, which I hope will be helpful! You can use any colours that you like and as much nail polishes as you wish. I've decided for three nail polishes that I recently bought (China Glaze: Lemon Fizz, Something Sweet and Peachy Keen- all from 'Up and Away' collection). I've heard that for water marbling you should use nail polishes that are of a good quality, so I've followed this advice. Plus I wanted to try out these nail polishes and this occasion was simply perfect. Okay, enough of the talking, check out the pics and if you like them, take a look at the tutorial at the end, pick few nail polishes and go crazy!

The Hummingbird Project Movie Review

A Beautiful Bind
One can be forgiven for presuming that any new movie concerning technology and starring Jesse Eisenberg is going to play like an inevitable follow-up to - or worse, a carbon copy of - 2010's "The Social Network." New tech drama "The Hummingbird Project" certainly shares some DNA with the unlikely Facebook-focused blockbuster, in that it concerns another technological arms race: here, the battle to best the financial markets with souped-up electronic trading systems.

David Crosby - If I Could Only Remember My Name 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 David Crosby’s solo debut, a foggy dream of psychedelic folk-rock.
The ’60s were over and David Crosby was living on a boat. Aside from the recording studio, his 59-foot schooner, named The Mayan, was the only place where things made sense. When Crosby was 11, his parents decided to enroll their son in sailing classes. The wild-eyed, giggling California kid had an anti-authoritarian streak that was starting to get him in trouble, and some time on the docks, they imagined, might give him some discipline, or at least a place to spend his summers. Sailing came naturally, like he had captained many vessels in a previous life. It was an uncanny feeling, comforting and strange. As the decade came to a close, Crosby wrote the title track of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young’s blockbuster album Déjà Vu about this very sensation.
