Four Tet - Live at Alexandra Palace London, 8th and 9th May 2019 Music Album Reviews

Kieran Hebden’s new live album reminds us that he is a stellar performer, not just a producer.
The British producer Kieran Hebden has one of the most distinctive signatures in electronic music. First, a gravelly drum machine; then, some jewel-toned synth pads; and, finally, a strip of harp or chimes or wordless cooing, unspooling like wrinkled ribbon.

Bryce Vine - Carnival Music Album Reviews

The debut full-length from the “Drew Barrymore” singer isn’t designed for conscious, focused listening. This is music for poolsides and basements.
Bryce Vine describes himself as “OutKast and Blink-182 got drunk with the Gorillaz.” Perhaps a more apt comparison is KYLE taking bong hits with Dave Matthews Band, or Jason Mraz sniffing poppers with Doja Cat. At 31, Vine is at an unconventional age for frat-rap prominence. He established a fanbase nearly a decade ago, as a contestant on “The Glee Project,” a reality television show based off the Ryan Murphy high school drama. His real rise came with 2017’s “Drew Barrymore,” a swirl of neon synths that went platinum, possibly by being added to every “Chill Vibes” playlist in existence.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 vs Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G: Head-to-Head On Vodafone’s 5G Network

Should you upgrade to 5G? We compare the 4G and 5G variants of Mi Mix 3 running on Vodafone’s network to see whether it’s worth taking the plunge.
Should I Buy The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3?
The Mi Mix 3 5G is faster and has a higher-capacity battery than the standard Mi Mix 3, yet weighs only 8g more. And while Vodafone’s 5G network is patchy right now, by the time you’re even halfway through your 24-month contract we should be in a completely different situation in terms of coverage. But are you prepared to pay double dollar for the priviledge of future-proofed connectivity and slightly better performance on an already fast phone?

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab S4

Samsung has quietly announced the Galaxy Tab S6, but is it a worthy upgrade over 2018's Tab S4? We compare the two tablets, highlighting the key differences to help you decide which is best for your needs.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Or Samsung Galaxy Tab S4?
It’s hard to say without going hands-on with the tablet ourselves, but based on the specs, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 offers a range of upgrades over the Galaxy Tab S4, but if you’re a casual tablet user that doesn’t need blistering speeds or a huge amount of storage, the Tab S4 is still a great option.

Apple And Google Prevent Workers To Listen Voice Recordings

Tech giants Apple and Google are temporarily stopping workers to listen to the voice recordings that are captured by smart speakers and virtual assistants. The news has come after a report from a leading daily stated that third party contractors used by Apple had heard people going through intimate moments and discussing private medical information. Other devices along with Siri can activate an error for wrongly pickling up sounds that they mishear as their wake words.

Florist - Emily Alone Music Album Reviews

Emily Sprague’s folk music turns solitude into an evocation of spirits. Her latest album as Florist grapples with change, death, and uncertainty with some of the most arresting songwriting of the year.
On her third album, Emily Sprague is sitting by the ocean, taking walks, tending to her plants, daydreaming. She’s feeling peaceful and existential and acutely aware of every source of light in the house. The previous two albums from her indie-pop outfit Florist were full-band affairs, but in these 12 songs, Sprague steps away from her collaborators for a spell, tasked with filling time alone. It’s a familiar reprieve for the Los Angeles-based artist, who has also released several excellent ambient collections under her own name. But while those long-form compositions have evoked solitude and the natural world using modular synthesizers, Emily Alone is built from simpler tools: double-tracked vocals, acoustic guitar, and the occasional birdsong leaking in from an open window.

YBN Cordae - The Lost Boy Music Album Reviews

Occasionally corny and self-serious, Cordae's redemption tale shows a promising voice bursting into the mainstream.
The YBN Crew’s origin story is already the stuff of internet legend, even though the group formed just five years ago. Nick Simmons was born in Birmingham and met Jay Bradley, of Galveston, while playing Grand Theft Auto V. They bonded out of a shared love of rap music and live-streaming video games, eventually recording their first freestyles in XBOX Live group chats as YBN Nahmir and YBN Almighty Jay, respectively.

De Lorians - De Lorians Music Album Reviews

The Tokyo jazz-fusion quintet specializes in disorienting twists and turns, offsetting chaos with an unmistakable sense of fun.
Listening to the debut LP from Tokyo jazz-fusion quintet De Lorians for the first time is like taking a spin on a dark-ride roller coaster. Not just because the 32-minute prog odyssey is full of hairpin turns and inversions: Its transitions unfurl completely unpredictably. Here, 30 seconds of loungey trot offers no refuge from the barrage of sax honking that might rain down by the time you’ve blinked. De Lorians, led by bandleader and multi-instrumentalist Takefumi Ishida, feed on a theory-drunk disrespect for familiar patterns.

Vaughan Mason & Butch Dayo - Feel My Love Music Album Reviews

A sought-after roller-disco anthem from 1983 makes for a tantalizing hybrid of boogie, electro, and house, and lays the foundation for artists from Chromeo to Dâm-Funk.
You’d be forgiven for wondering if Vaughan Mason owned stock in a ball-bearing factory. Back in 1979, a Wall Street Journal report that 300,00 pairs of roller skates were being sold each month caught Mason’s eye, and he soon set about making an anthem for the rinks. The result was Vaughan Mason and Crew’s “Bounce, Rock, Skate, Roll,” a knock-off of Chic’s “Good Times” that became an epochal slice of roller disco all by itself, fueling innumerable birthday parties and Saturday nights. Beyond the roller rink, “Bounce, Rock, Skate, Roll” continues to boogie through pop culture: You can hear it in Daft Punk’s “Da Funk,” the Avalanches’ “Electricity,” and shouted out by Janet Jackson on “R&B Junkie.”

Amazon Music To Be Freely Available Through Alexa

Amazon Music is the fastest growing streaming service in the world. It has now launched a new way for the listeners to stream music for free. But that would only be possible if the listeners have an Alexa assistant device. From August 1, 2019, listeners in the UK, who do not have Prime membership or a subscription to Amazon Music, will be able to listen to a selection of playlists and stations for free on the Alexa-enabled devices. But the catch is that they will be supported by advertisements.

Google To Introduce Text-To-Speech Tech For Emergency Calls On Pixel

Search engine giant Google is introducing a new feature for its Pixel phone. The news feature will automatically describe the kind of emergency and exact address to first responders. The search engine is adding an automated text-to-speech feature on the Phone app on the Pixel devices, while enabling a one-tap system to relay location information to fire, medical or police responders without the need for speech.

Sony PlayStation 5 Listed For Pre-Orders

It has been about three years since Sony has launched its last PlayStation console. Since the gap is long, the fans of PlayStation are eager to know that the company is now looking forward to and what it has in store for the gamers. Sony has so far remained silent over the release of its upcoming console and is widely referred to as PlayStation 5. Rumours say that it will be launched in mid or late 2020.

Cat Power - Moon Pix 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 Chan Marshall’s spellbinding fourth album, an intimate and feverish masterpiece from the singer-songwriter.
Moon Pix has a wonderful origin tale, one simply too good to miss an opportunity to retell: Chan Marshall was living in a barn with singer-songwriter Bill Callahan in a South Carolina town called Prosperity, on the brink of saying goodbye to music forever—or so she told scores of eager interviewers—when she woke up from a horrible nightmare. “Hell came to get me again,” she told The Fader, attempting to describe the mortal panic in which she awoke. She wrote the songs that night, with visions of spirits pressing the glass. Voilà: Her very own crossroads.

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw Movie Review

A Car is (Air)borne
Every once in a while a movie comes along that's just too big for one critic to handle. Here at BPBS our hard-working team of reviewers is always ready to step up to a challenge, and this time we needed two of our crew to cover all the action in the super-kinetic, gleefully excessive new buddy flick "Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw." This first spinoff from the startlingly long-lived franchise showcases the outsize duo of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson ("Skyscraper," "Baywatch") and Jason Statham ("Wild Card," "The Expendables," and lots of movies with punchy one-word titles) as a couple of sparring action heroes who trade punches and punchlines on their quest to save the day. BPBS reviewers Lora Grady and Stuart Shave won't ever be mistaken for action heroes (though we've sent Stuart to more than his fair share of superhero movies: "Venom," "Avengers: Endgame") but …

The Nightingale Movie Review

Brutal 'Nightingale' Worth Listening To

Be wary of "The Nightingale," a powerful new movie worth seeking out should you choose to do so. It's a brutal and deeply upsetting film at almost every turn, but director Jennifer Kent ("The Babadook") handles the film's unsettling moments with purpose and conviction. Even so, be warned before entering the film.
Set in colonial Australia in 1825, Clare (Aisling Franciosi) has been enslaved by British commander Lieutenant Hawkins (Sam Claflin) for seven years. She is treated as a servant by Hawkins and his men, serving them food and drinks and being subjected to their crude comments and gestures. She is referred to as a nightingale because she serenades them on command as they sit around and get drunk.

The Ground Beneath My Feet Movie Review

Ground Up and Spit Out
Marie Kreutzer's "The Ground Beneath My Feet" has put itself into the early running for Best Foreign Film of 2019. It unfolds beautifully, dancing between psychological thriller and a cold examination of mental illness and the cutthroat corporate world.
Lola Wegenstein (Valerie Pachner) is a young, attractive woman who is a big part of a company that goes into other companies to make them more solvent. Translated, she is one of those people who is feared by employees everywhere in the corporate world, because when someone like her shows up at the place where you work, people are going to lose their jobs. Downsizing is everywhere. Personally, she is competent and affable, but she's part of the machine that can gobble people up and spit them out.

100 gecs - 1000 gecs Music Album Reviews

The duo’s wild-eyed genre mishmash covers chiptune’d pop-punk, chintzy trance synths, and the closely mic’d intimacy of indie pop—sometimes all in the same song.
If you're the type to take pleasure in connecting dots across the overwhelmingly scattered trends of 2010s digital music culture, then 100 gecs are right up your alley. Production and songwriting duo Dylan Brady and Laura Les—hailing from Los Angeles and Chicago, respectively—make abrasive, maximalist pop music that isn’t so much indefinable as it is endlessly identifiable, cross-sectioning myriad mainstream-leaning and definitively underground music released over the last decade. Nothing they’re doing is new, per se, but the way in which they do it feels fresh and appealingly unique.

Cherubs - Immaculada High Music Album Reviews

The fabled noise-rock outfit paint an ugly world on their second post-reunion release, but they have never sounded freer or more purposeful.
The fabled Austin noise rock band Cherubs have always had a close relationship, imagined or otherwise, to hard drugs. Their 1994 release Heroin Man earned them a permanent cult following with the same people that worshipped The Jesus Lizard, Butthole Surfers, and Cows. Their new label, Relapse, cheerfully characterizes them as drug music for drug people. The video for “18 the Number,” a track off their new album Immaculada High, is a choppy, mutated trip down memory lane, and won’t help dispel that well-worn association. But flying high or not, Cherubs has never sounded more lucid or purposeful.

Lisel - Angels on the Slope Music Album Reviews

The debut solo album from Pavo Pavo’s Eliza Bagg, a collection of pop songs with subtle experimental undertones, is her most outré release to date.
In her work with the band Pavo Pavo, and as a frequent collaborator of artists like Julianna Barwick and Tim Hecker, Eliza Bagg writes complicated arrangements and string parts masked by doe-like melodies. She exerts god-tier control over her soprano, approaching her work with the dogged precision of serious classical training. The Los Angeles-based polymath brings all this fussy expertise to her debut solo record, Angels on the Slope, under the moniker Lisel. A collection of pop songs with subtle experimental undertones, it’s Bagg’s most outré release to date, albeit one overcrowded by gaudy production effects.

Honor has confirmed to Tech Advisor that full UK and European availability details for the recently announced Honor 9X will be provided at IFA on 6 September.
The Honor 9X was announced in China on 23 July at 1,399 yuan (£167/US$203), alongside the Honor 9X Pro at 2,199 yuan (£262/$320).

Samsung Galaxy S11 Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

Forget the upcoming Note 10 - here's what to expect from Samsung's next flagship phone, the Galaxy S11.
Arriving in February 2020, Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S11 (if that is indeed what it is called) will improve on the already high standards set by this year's flagship quartet, which comprises Galaxy S10, S10 Plus, S10 5G and S10e.
Galaxy S11 will almost certainly also borrow some features from the Note 10, which will arrive on 7 August, including its new Aura Glow, Aura Black and Aura White colour options, 45W fast charging and enhanced cameras. Sadly, just like that phone, it will probably also lose its headphone jack, dedicated Bixby button and heart-rate sensor.

The new Nokia phone is tipped to run Android One (based on the upcoming Android 10 Q OS) on a Snapdragon 735 processor, along with 8GB of RAM and 256GB storage.

Cuco - Para Mí Music Album Reviews

The 21-year-old bedroom-pop artist’s major-label debut displays shaggy charm and an eclecticism that’s still confined to the more pleasant parts of the color wheel.
“I’m only interested in a label if they come through with whatever terms I send them,” Cuco told Rolling Stone last year. Interscope must have come through. According to Billboard, the 21-year-old bedroom-pop songwriter signed a seven-figure deal with the label, which promised him freedom and flexibility. That’s as much a testament to Omar Banos’ devoted fanbase as it is an admission by the suits that they no longer care to dictate the conversation. Why risk a flop when they can just follow the streams?

Teejayx6 - Fraudulent Activity Music Album Reviews

The latest mixtape from the young Detroit rapper takes scamming to the next level.
Teejayx6 is a passionate rapper. It just so happens that his passion is not so much rapping, but scamming, and making money so that he can scam more, and maybe, if he has some money leftover, fund a rap career. The Detroit teenager will do anything to ensure his passions flourish, like illegal purchases of iPhones in his nephew’s name and convincing his younger cousin to sell weed from her lemonade stand. In Detroit, scammer rap is nothing new (see: Bossman Rich and BandGang Lonnie Bands), but Teejayx6’s approach is more direct. Sometimes he’s nervous that he’s gone too far and will be caught, a tension that’s amplified by his anxious, offbeat delivery and fast-paced instrumentals. Teejay always gets away, though, and when he does, he takes the time to reflect on the finer things in life: the strength of his IP address, the VPN that leaves him untraceable, and the social security numbers he’s purchased, …

Caleb Giles - Under the Shade Music Album Reviews

The 21-year-old Bronx native belongs to an exciting new generation remaking NYC rap in their own image. On his third album, he grapples with present-day poverty and everyday life.
For a while, it seemed like every rapper coming out of the five boroughs was a retro revivalist, tethered to the greats of the past, like a rookie NBA player pulling on the jersey of a legacy team. But young guys like MIKE, Medhane, Adé Hakim (formerly known as Sixpress), and Slauson Malone reside in a New York City where Earl Sweatshirt is a more powerful god than Chuck D. These rappers have run an insurgency campaign on the local scene, contorting elements of classic East Coast hip-hop into their own warped vision for the future.

Resavoir - Resavoir Music Album Reviews

The Chicago trumpeter with hip-hop and indie-rock bona fides steps out as a bandleader, shepherding 18 musicians across a complex, soulful album that celebrates interconnectedness.
When Kendrick Lamar and Chance the Rapper tapped into their cities’ homegrown jazz scenes, it proved mutually beneficial for the rappers and their collaborators alike. Their breakout works were strengthened by a century-old musical heritage, and newer jazz artists like Kamasi Washington and Donnie Trumpet & the Social Experiment got the chance to shine on their own. Over the past few years, Chicago trumpeter Will Miller has shared the stage with everyone from Whitney to Lil Wayne, A$AP Rocky to the late Mac Miller. Taking lessons from indie rock and hip-hop and infusing the resulting hybrids with his own sensibilities, Miller now steps out as a bandleader with Resavoir. His group draws on the tradition established by other fine Chicago jazz-inflected exports over the years (Rotary Connection, Tortoise, E…

Sony Sold More Than 100 Million PlayStation 4 Consoles

Sony of late faced a declining sale of its PlayStation 4, but the new figures have shown that it has sold 100 million units and has made it the fastest-selling console to hit that number. The tech giant in its latest earnings report revealed that it has sold 3.2 million PlayStation 4s between March 31 and June 30 after announcing that 96.8 million units were sold in the previous quarter. This means that the company reached the figure in 5 years and seven months, just two months quicker that the Nintendo’s Wii.

Google Announces Pixel 4 With Two Cameras On Back And One In Front

There have been a number of Pixel 4 leaks and speculations and that forced Google to tease the phone’s design several months before its launch. However, the earlier leaks and images have convinced us earlier how the rear portion of the upcoming device would look like. It is also known that the handset feature would have a dual-lens camera on the back, which is the first for the Pixel series.

Willow - Willow Music Album Reviews

The latest album from the child star turned Star Child can be pretty in a tuned-out sort of way, but her psychedelic soul music is no closer to showing us who she really is.
Things happened quickly for Willow, as they tend to do for children of celebrities. At 9, she scored a platinum hit and signed to Roc Nation just as the song went viral. At 10, she was cast as the lead in a movie remake of the musical Annie. Just as the Smith family career plan had seemingly taken hold, she rebuked it: She quit Annie, withdrew from the pop sphere, and started releasing music with titles like Interdimensional Tesseract. She has called having famous parents “excruciatingly terrible” and has been in overdrive forging her own path. On “Boy,” the opener to her 2017 album, The 1st, released on her 17th birthday, she was as honest about how the outside world sees her as she’s ever been, looking through the eyes of a new lover: “I come from a cluster of super bright stars/And probably to him it feels scary…

Iggy Azalea - In My Defense Music Album Reviews

The Australian rapper returns with her first album in five years, sounding not just unrepentant but also tediously uninterested in any kind of growth whatsoever.
Iggy Azalea wants you to know she’s not sorry. She mentions this on every track of her new album, braiding it into brags about her money and her body until they snarl together in a petty wreath. It’s an odd package for a record with high stakes: This is her first album in five years, after her planned 2016 release Digital Distortion was shelved, and the first she’s released on her independent label. In those years, she has cemented a reputation built on appropriation and controversy. Name a major artist—Halsey, Snoop Dogg, the cartoon character Peppa Pig—and Iggy has entangled herself in some sort of feud with them. On an album with the unsubtle title In My Defense, she attempts to cast herself as a victim while further distorting and dismissing the cultures she takes from. Less than three minutes into the album, she raps, “Be…

Patrice Rushen - Remind Me: The Classic Elektra Recordings 1978-1984 Music Album Reviews

The jazz and R&B legend's songs have been sampled by everyone from Will Smith to Prince Paul. This compilation shows her immaculate work on its own.
When (and if) Patrice Rushen’s two moderate ’80s hits spring to mind, more than likely your memory super-imposes a different voice atop hers. Her triumphant “Haven’t You Heard” broke into the R&B Top 10 in 1980, but couldn’t crack the Top 40. But when Kirk Franklin lifted it wholesale for “Looking for You” in 2005, it charted across the gospel, R&B, and the Hot 100. Similarly, “Forget Me Nots” made the Top 40 and was nominated for a Grammy in 1982, but that beguiling handclap and bounding bassline also laid the foundation for Will Smith’s “Men in Black” 15 years later (George Michael also sampled it). Rushen’s DNA runs through everything: Diddy, J Dilla, Jermaine Dupri, Prince Paul, Q-Tip, and Knxwledge have sampled her, to name just a few among hundreds. “We’re living in Patrice Rushen’s world,” the New York Times recently…

Lingua Ignota - Caligula Music Album Reviews

On her torrential second album, Kristin Hayter creates a murderous amalgam of opera, metal, and noise that uses her classical training like a Trojan Horse, burning misogyny to ash from its Judeo-Christian roots.
Eight minutes into her torrential second album as Lingua Ignota, Kristin Hayter lets out a thundering, apocalyptic scream: “I don’t eat, I don’t sleep [...] I let it consume me,” she cries. Her voice is so ugly and shredded and maniacal and alive that it creates a witness of anyone who hears it. It is the sound of trauma, that which is by definition intolerable, and Hayter traverses its most upsetting depths on behalf of survivors, including herself. With Caligula, she has created a murderous amalgam of opera, metal, and noise that uses her classical training like a Trojan Horse, burning misogyny to ash from its Judeo-Christian roots.

Best Gaming Phone 2019

Gaming on a smartphone is very much a thing. Here are the best gaming phones and where to buy them
Gaming on phones has been a thing ever since we all first booted up our Nokia 3310s for hours on Snake, before our iPhones became clogged with hours of Candy Crush Saga.

Best SSDs 2019

An SSD will revive and old PC or laptop and make a newer one even faster. Here we review the best SSDs to buy this year
What's The Best SSD You Can Buy? Solid-state drives (SSD) are like hard drives, but as the name suggests they have no moving parts. So not only are they more rugged than hard drives, they're much, much faster.
This isn't about go-faster bragging rights though.  Yes, you can copy enormous files to an SSD in record time, but it's the massive boost that the drive will give you your computer's responsiveness that will shock you most: applications launch almost instantly, web pages load faster, and Windows simply feels a lot faster.

Smartphone manufacturing giants Vivo and Oppo have adopted the all-screen, notch-less on their smartphones. But now Oppo is exploring new boundaries and is trying out a new curved display.

When viewed directly from the front, the bezels are practically visible that gives the device an even more premium look than today’s curved screen phones which is the Oppo Find X.

Nas - The Lost Tapes 2 Music Album Reviews

Ostensibly a sequel to The Lost Tapes, these unreleased songs from Nas’ latter-day output were pulled from the cutting room floor.
In February 1999, just before the mp3 era reached its peak, 13 tracks from Nas’ forthcoming double LP I Am....The Autobiography leaked onto the internet. With the core of the album in the wild almost two months before the scheduled release date, Nas and his team at Columbia panicked, scrapping the original tracklist and pushing back the album release date.

Jeff Mills - Moon: The Area of Influence Music Album Reviews

Tilting his gaze toward the heavens once again, the Detroit electronic icon delivers an ambient-techno concept album exploring the moon’s pull on the human imagination.
Jeff Mills likes outer space. Over the past three decades, the Detroit native and techno legend has amassed an expansive catalog, with many of his releases taking direct inspiration from the cosmos, including records devoted to Alpha Centauri, Proxima Centauri, Orion, and a myriad of (often fantastical) intergalactic journeys. He has even collaborated with NASA.
