Darkthrone - A Blaze in the Northern Sky 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 a tense, beautiful, lo-fi landmark from the second wave of black metal.
In the fall of 1971, a child is born in a remote village in Norway. He will one day rechristen himself Fenriz, after the Earth-swallowing wolf, Fenrir, who appears in Norse mythology and the Satanic Bible. But for now, he is Gylve Nagell, being raised by his grandmother, spending inordinate amounts of time alone. The pivotal moments of his childhood occur while listening to records, music introduced to him by an eccentric uncle named Stein. Pink Floyd catches his ear; a few songs by the Doors hold his attention; but it’s the English progressive rock band Uriah Heep that blows his mind. He’s entranced by the heavy organ sound, the cryptic lyrics, and the mysterious men with long hair who appear on the album’s cover. He cherishes the triple-fold LP like an heirloom from…

Sonos Move Review: Hands-on

Sonos Move Review: Hands-on The Sonos Move is the firm's first portable Bluetooth speaker but it's much more than that. Here's our hands-on review from IFA 2019.
Should I Buy The Sonos Move?
In a nutshell, the Sonos Move is the portable speaker that we've always wanted the company to make. It's everything we dreamed of, and more.

Amazfit GTR Review

Amazfit GTR Review
We take a look at this budget smartwatch-cum-fitness tracker, which has a design suited to everyday wear
Should I Buy The Amazfit GTR? The Amazfit GTR comes in at a much cheaper price than its rivals and matches most of them when it comes to performance and abilities. But the lower price does come with a few drawbacks.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Review

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Review Thanks to a plus model, the Galaxy Note 10 might be the big Samsung phone you've been waiting a long time for. Find out why in our full review.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy Note 10?
With so many phones being almost identical to the last model, we're impressed with what Samsung has done with the Galaxy Note 10.
The 10+ model still provides the classic Note experience, with more impressive specs, but this regular one will finally appeal to those that want the S Pen on a much more manageable phone.

De'Longhi Maestosa Review

De'Longhi Maestosa Review The De'Longhi Maestosa is a top-of-the-line smart espresso machine that makes killer coffee but isn't as smart as it should be - which is a problem at this price
Should I Buy The De'Longhi Maestosa?
As a coffee machine the Maestosa is pretty phenomenal, packed with features, add-ons, and conveniences that back up the fact that it also just makes bloody good coffee. As a smart coffee machine however, the Maestosa is a flop. Smart support is of questionable value in a coffee machine at the best of times, but here it barely works at all.
If you'd be willing to drop two and a half grand on an automatic bean-to-cup machine that wasn't smart, then take a serious look at the Maestosa. But if it's the smart stuff that's got you tempted then steer clear and wait for De'Longhi's app to brew a little longer.

Thurston Moore - Spirit Counsel Music Album Reviews

Thurston Moore - Spirit Counsel Music Album Reviews Even with its imposing length and deep roster of collaborators, the ecstatic new album from Thurston Moore is arguably the most accessible entry point into his boundless experimental canon.
For 40 years now, Thurston Moore has maintained dual citizenship in the worlds of rock and the avant-garde. But where he spent his three decades in Sonic Youth straddling the line between those discrete realms, he’s spent much of his solo career jumping from one side to the other. For every tuneful acoustic collection he’s issued under his own name and every searing set of guitar jams he’s kicked out with his Thurston Moore Group, there are literally over a hundred small-run micro-label releases and one-off collaborations where Moore has indulged his unabating loves of improvised noise, free jazz, spoken-word poetry, and black metal without interfering with his official indie-rock discography.

Sampa the Great - The Return Music Album Reviews

Sampa the Great - The Return Music Album Reviews On her breakout debut, the promising Melbourne rapper wrestles with big ideas about peace, family, and home.
Near the beginning of Sampa The Great’s debut album The Return, we hear a voicemail from a concerned friend. She implores the rapper to realize what she’s up against as a black woman in the music industry: “I don’t think you have time for all this ‘finding yourself’ spiritual shit.” But that’s just what The Return is about. Sampa—who was born in Zambia, raised in Botswana, and now lives in Melbourne—is trying to find a sense of place in a world where she’ll always be ticked as “other.” Accordingly, The Return is a dense and sometimes-challenging record, with beats that pull in bits of jazz alongside ’90s R&B and hip-hop. When taken together with her darting, head-cold flow, the album can be intimidating, but the arduous journey it traces is one toward peace.

Trupa Trupa - Of the Sun Music Album Reviews

Trupa Trupa - Of the Sun Music Album Reviews Channeling a wary mixture of dread and hope, the Polish indie rockers tighten the slackness of previous records into a potent fusion of post-hardcore and shoegaze.
Like any politically aware artist making music today, Polish indie rockers Trupa Trupa are particularly attuned to the tenor of our times. They understand that to be alive in 2019 is to perpetually grapple with two strongly oppositional states of being: paralyzing misery over looming ecological and social collapse, and whatever emotion it is—some might call it hope—that motivates us to get out of bed every morning, text birthday greetings to friends, sort our recyclables from our compostibles, and publicly shame fascists on the internet. The band’s fourth album, Of the Sun, doesn’t so much directly address the state of the world as vividly conjure the day-to-day sensation of existing within it, forever teetering on the tightrope walk between luminous ugliness and awful bliss.

Amazfit Stratos+ (Pace 2S) Review: Tough Sports Smartwatch On A Budget

Waterproof, good-looking and tough: the Amazfit Stratos+ is a budget smartwatch with GPS, a heart-rate sensor and wireless connectivity, that makes it easy to monitor your activity, health and sleep quality, and get all your important phone notifications on your wrist. Known elsewhere as the Pace 2S, here's our Stratos+ review.
Should I Buy The Amazfit Stratos+?
For an extra £20 this upgraded version of the Amazfit Stratos comes with an additional leather strap, a tough Sapphire glass display and a fancy box. If you're making full use of its sport features then the extra durability of the Stratos+ should make that extra outlay a no-brainer in keeping it safe from the perils of daily wear, but if your budget is tight stick with the Stratos.
In common with its sibling, this is a hybrid fitness tracker and sports smartwatch, and a strong budget option. It has 16 activity tracking modes, GPS, 50m waterproofing, an optical heart-rate sensor and training recommendations. There are no a…

Asus ROG Phone 2 Review

The ROG Phone 2 is a top-spec gaming phone and then some, with a Snapdragon 855+, a host of dedicated gaming accessories, and a monstrous 6,000mAh battery. Find out more in our full review.
Should I Buy The Asus ROG Phone 2?
It's certainly not a phone with mass appeal but Asus has done a great job of making the ROG Phone 2 even better.
This is a gaming phone and excels at the task in all kinds of clever ways. It's even got decent cameras, too.

Brittany Howard - Jaime Music Album Reviews

The exceptional solo debut from the Alabama Shakes singer-songwriter is a thrilling opus that pushes the boundaries of voice, sound, and soul to new extremes.
Brittany Howard tends to get a little restless when things get too comfortable. Just when she and her band Alabama Shakes were branded as innocuous roots-rock revivalists after their 2012 debut, Boys & Girls, she started pushing their retro-soul sound to its outer reaches and beyond. Sound & Color, from 2015, sprawled out into blues and funk and psychedelia, and won three Grammys doing it. Amid the Shakes’ growing popularity, Howard deviated from the course. In 2018, emotionally spent, she called a meeting of her Shakes bandmates to announce that she’d be stepping away for a bit after a spell of writer’s block; she didn’t know what she’d be doing next, but she’d be doing it on her own. In retreating from Alabama Shakes, Brittany Howard found herself on a voyage of self-discovery.

Ghostface Killah - Ghostface Killahs Music Album Reviews

After a string of muted releases, Ghost strains to recapture some of the old Wu fire.
After the high-water mark of 2006’s Fishscale, Ghostface Killah embarked on a series of intriguing collaborations with producers like Adrian Younge and BadBadNotGood. Receding into the middle distance of his own music, he offered solid verses that served as backdrop for a more free-flowing, live-band sound. It seemed, perhaps, that Ghost might be reverting to an older definition of MC in his middle age, turning from a microphone controller into a master of ceremonies.

Long Beard - Means to Me Music Album Reviews

Leslie Bear’s second album could be about any ordinary American suburb, but the emotion behind her airy dream-pop makes it entirely personal.
Leslie Bear’s second album as Long Beard is a narrative of home, albeit a nebulous one; across the 10 songs on Means to Me, the New Jersey dream-pop musician never refers to her town by name. She doesn’t illustrate tree-lined streets, or her favorite hangout spots, or the house she grew up in. The only landmark she cites is the local CVS, outside which she had her first kiss. On paper, this could be a record about any ordinary American suburb.

Chastity - Home Made Satan Music Album Reviews

The Ontario musician slings revolutionary sentiments and blood lust for authority over bittersweet alt-rock.
AChastity lyrics bot would get banned from Twitter in about 15 minutes. “If you want to show the world love, kill a cop,” Brandon Williams smirks on “I Still Feel the Same,” pausing in the middle of that thought for just a moment so it sorta sounds like a joke. You know, he’s just kidding...unless you’re gonna do it. Cops are at the top of Williams’ very explicit and lengthy hit list on Home Made Satan, along with the military, Andrew Scheer, Justin Trudeau, Donald Trump, the Christian right, #notallmen apologists, the Ku Klux Klan, and bankers. Oh, and there’s a “special place in hell” for his conservative-voting parents. If Chastity sounded like metal or made hip-hop, Home Made Satan might be under government investigation. But he comes off as something a lot more unnerving to right-wingers: a violent radical hiding in plain sight, posing as a suburban centrist.

Fitbit Versa 2 Review

The Fitbit Versa 2 is an incremental upgrade that polishes up the Versa's design while bolstering app support with big additions in Alexa and Spotify
Should I Buy The Fitbit Versa 2?
The Fitbit Versa 2 covers all the aspects of a health and fitness watch, measuring steps, heart rate, distance, calories burned, floors climbed, active minutes, hourly activity, and sleep. It offers on-screen notifications from your phone, silent alarms, cardio fitness levels, workout and other exercise modes such as swimming and weights, female health tracking, and wellness features, plus music controls and even Amazon's Alexa voice assistant.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus 5G vs Samsung Galaxy S10 5G

Samsung's 5G smartphones come with big screens and even bigger prices, but are they worth it? We compare the Note 10 Plus 5G vs S10 5G
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus 5G or Samsung Galaxy S10 5G? The Note 10 Plus 5G is arguably the best phone that Samsung has ever made. Impeccable components, gorgeous design, and about as futureproof as a smartphone can get. It’s also incredibly expensive and the tentpole feature - 5G - remains scarce outside major cities and sometimes within them. 
The S10 5G is another impressive device but suffers the same drawback. If you want the very best then the Note 10 Plus 5G is it, but it may be more sensible to go for the Standard Galaxy Note 10 instead.

Samsung Will Allow Users Of Galaxy Fold To Replace Their Screens Once For $149

The much awaited Samsung Galaxy Fold is once again all set to go on sale in the US for $1980. One of the biggest mysteries about the re-launch is that the company would surely try to avoid another blunder. But the previous debacle was caused due to lack of education and warnings that could have done earlier. And even if that does not work for the gadget enthusiasts new baby Galaxy Fold, the company will be allowing one-time screen replacement for $149.

Nintendo Switch Lite Review

The Nintendo Switch Lite boasts a design focused around portability, but are the sacrifices to functionality worth it? Find out in our review
Should I Buy The Nintendo Switch Lite?
The Nintendo Switch is a great portable console that you can fit into most pockets and provides the cheapest way to get into the Switch ecosystem, but it's let down by stripped-back features that make it incompatible with some Switch titles. 

Indian Summer - Giving Birth to Thunder Music Album Reviews

An anthology of the emo pioneers’ complete works testifies to their thrift, their seriousness, and their towering legacy; it captures the essence of a crucial era in the genre’s history.
Indian Summer are a quintessential Numero Group salvage project: Toiling in obscurity, the Oakland band founded a subgenre and produced a small, influential body of work that quickly went out of print. Today their records serve as both stylistic textbooks and collector’s items. But this is the first time the esteemed archival label felt weird about the optics. “Give emo a chance,” they recently tweeted, offering a playlist of formative genre tracks that ends in 1995, the year Cap’n Jazz broke up and months after Indian Summer did the same. Giving Birth to Thunder is Indian Summer in its entirety, but it’s also the essence of an entire era where emo was still strictly post-hardcore, before it started to cross-breed with pop and assume the form that today inspires such reverent nostalgia.

Hobo Johnson - The Fall of Hobo Johnson Music Album Reviews

The second album from the viral star is crowded with histrionic vocals, tired emotions, and petty grievances, leaving little room to actually enjoy his music.
To Hobo Johnson, Earth’s imminent demise won’t be because of climate change or nuclear war. Instead, the apocalypse will arrive the next time a girl he likes doesn’t text him back. Hobo Johnson is the product of a section of a pop culture fandom whose life was changed by a Kid Cudi lyric, went to Warped Tour once, started shopping at Zumiez, and learned about love from 500 Days of Summer. The 24-year-old’s music is a genre-bending mash of spoken-word pop and Lin-Manuel Miranda-style raps, backed by a versatile band called the Lovemakers that play punk, folk, and jazz with the same sexless energy as the group of dads that played your local church fundraiser. But the core of Hobo Johnson’s music is his emotional honesty and an occasional ability to detail his battles with crippling insecurities. This would be relatable and maybe ev…

Devendra Banhart - Ma Music Album Reviews

On his most cohesive album in more than a decade, the re-energized songwriter imparts life lessons to the child he may never have.
At the start of the century, Devendra Banhart emerged as the ecstatic pied piper of an esoteric folk resurgence, a magnetic singer-songwriter who mingled childlike wonder and guru-level insight over glittering fingerpicked guitar. Unapologetically inquisitive and ardent, Banhart’s early works seemed to provide a sort of instruction manual for life.

Raphael Saadiq - Jimmy Lee Music Album Reviews

The soul singer’s latest is a multi-perspective, multi-genre examination of addiction and family breakdown.
Raphael Saadiq’s solo career has been haunted by the ghosts of tormented men and women. One such figure hides beneath the catchy pop melody of “You’re the One That I Like,” a song from his 2002 debut Instant Vintage about losing a love interest to addiction. Another lurks in “Grown Folks,” a concerned-but-scolding soul track off his sophomore album Ray Ray, about parents who can’t seem to prioritize their children. And even “Good Man,” from his 2011 retro-R&B album Stone Rollin’, is filled with contempt for the would-be patriarchs that just can’t get it together.

Secretlab Titan (2020) Review

It might not be a reinvention, but the 2020 update enhances the already premium experience on offer from the Secretlab Titan
Should I Buy The Secretlab Titan?
For the price, the Secretlab Titan 2020 provides a truly premium gaming chair experience with cold-cure foam, soft-to-the-touch Prime 2.0 PU leather and a range of adjustments to find the perfect angle and keep you feeling comfortable during long gaming sessions. Little details, like the 2020 branding, chome-plated buttons and improved PU Leather really add to the high-end look and feel of the Titan, which we think has matured as a product. 

Surfshark VPN Review

With some useful extra features and a solid VPN service that ticks the right boxes, Surfshark is a VPN which should be on your shortlist.
Should I Buy Surfshark?
A relatively new VPN service, Surfshark’s subscriber base is growing rapidly, and it’s easy to see why. With a slick, simple interface, very competitive pricing and a good range of features, it’s a great choice for most people.

Huawei Launches Mate 30 Phones Without Google Apps

The launch of the much awaited Huawei Mate 30 was hampered due to the ongoing trade-war between China and the US. As a result, search engine giant Google has pulled its applications and services from the company’s new devices. The new device by Huawei was announced in Munich on September 19, 2019. The high-end Mate 30 series features Huawei’s latest class-leading camera and 5G technology.

Fitbit Versa vs Fitbit Versa 2

The Fitbit Versa 2 brings a new design and upgrades for the same price, but is it enough to upgrade? We compare it to the original Versa smartwatch.
Should I Buy The Fitbit Versa 2 Or Fitbit Versa?
At the same price, the Fitbit Versa 2 bring along a improved design, larger screen, longer battery life and some software features.
It might well tempt you to upgrade but if you don't already have the orginal, it's available at a lower price if these new features aren't your kind of thing.

JPEGMAFIA - All My Heroes Are Cornballs Music Album Reviews

The experimental rapper remains an impish writer and an athletic vocalist on his latest album, one that lays bare the sprawling collage in his fiery, fascinating brain.
From the DC Universe to the internet writ large, JPEGMAFIA’s heroes span genres and mediums. The producer and rapper’s pantheon is expansive and colorful, a bustling splash page of influences and pop culture totems. While JPEG has never downplayed the prominent roles that anime, video games, and wrestling play in his music, the adrenalized politics of his past projects sometimes obscured that scope. Listening to a song like “I Just Killed a Cop Now I’m Horny,” for instance, the morose Ai Aso sample always felt overshadowed by the flamboyant title and JPEG’s anti-cop lyrics. All My Heroes Are Cornballs adjusts that imbalance by laying bare the sprawling collage in his brain and showcasing how seamlessly it all fits together. The record feels like a public access show on an interdimensional cable channel: unhinged and tri…

Various Artists - The Time for Peace Is Now Music Album Reviews

Luaka Bop’s collection of ’70s rhythmic gospel rarities doesn’t feel like gospel in the traditional sense. These working musicians were deeply entwined with the funky, soulful sounds of their time.
Forget the old canard about paying for your Saturday night sins by attending church on Sunday morning. The post-war explosion of recorded music was fuelled by artists transforming gospel music into earthly, earthy pop. Ray Charles built his carnal 1959 breakthrough hit “What’d I Say” on the call and response of a gospel choir, Little Walter changed “This Train”’s call for salvation into an ode to “My Babe,” Sam Cooke turned testimony into sensual pleading. By the time Aretha Franklin ruled the pop and R&B charts in the late 1960s, the open dialogue between gospel, soul, and pop meant even Paul Simon and Paul McCartney were writing songs that were effectively secular spirituals.

The Highwomen - The Highwomen Music Album Reviews

On a dozen songs that transcend stereotypes of women in country music, this supergroup explores love, politics, and family.
At the start of their powerful self-titled debut, the Highwomen—four leading women, banded together from distant corners of the country-music universe—go for the genre’s androgenic throat. “I was a Highwoman/and a mother from my youth,” sings Amanda Shires, who recruited the Highwomen after realizing anew how few women rank as modern country stars. It is a rewrite of “Highwayman,” of course, a composite sketch of the fabled spirit of valiant men. Written by country hit machine Jimmy Webb, the tune gave the collective of Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, and Waylon Jennings their collective name, The Highwaymen, in the mid-’80s.

Type O Negative - None More Negative Music Album Reviews

The best-known of these kick off 1993’s Bloody Kisses: “Christian Woman” explores its subject’s sublimation of sexuality into the crucified body of Christ with all the subtlety of “Ken Russell’s The Devils: The Musical.” It continues with “Black No. 1,” an affectionate send-up of a goth girl’s beauty regimen that launched the band into the public consciousness, via a striking black-and-white video that received heavy Beavis and Butthead rotation. Both songs showcase Steele’s distinctive, vampiric baritone, complete with theatrically rolled R’s and overemphasized consonants (“on her milk-white neck-kkh, the devil’s mark-k”). The man eroticized diction.
Steele shared vocal duties with his gifted guitarist Kenny Hickey, who handled the shouty bits; over time, this allowed Steele to hone his voice into something not just creepy or sexy but actually romantic, even abject. He closes October Rust’s anthemic “Love You to Death” by plaintively asking the object of his affection “Am I good enoug…

Libratone Track Air+ Review

If you want noise-cancelling wireless earbuds then Libratone has a good value offer. We review the Track Air+ headphones.
Should I Buy The Libratone Track Air+?
The real strength of the Track Air+ headphones lies in their all-round versatility and value for money.
Sound quality is very good, but these little earbuds also squeeze plenty of extra features into their elegant, minimalist design, including water-resistance, wireless charging case, and effective noise-cancellation technology – all at a very competitive price.

Philips Avent DECT Baby Monitor Review

A top quality audio baby monitor with sweet nightlight and lullaby features. Read our full Philips Avent DECT Baby monitor review.
Should I Buy The Philips Avent DECT Baby Monitor?
The Philips Avent DECT baby monitor is a top quality audio-only option that will suit parents looking for a safe, secure monitor with excellent sound. The lack of a video display won’t appeal to everyone, though. 

Kodak Smile Instant Digital Printer Review

The Kodak Smile printer lets you edit, decorate, and print photos from your phone, and even add AR effects on top
Should I Buy The Kodak Smile Instant Digital Printer?
The Kodak Smile printer is a fairly simple bit of kit, but it gets the job done. Zink prints aren't the highest quality in the world, but they're a great way to get your favourite photos off your phone or Instagram and into a real print or sticker.
The Smile app has a decent array of editing options, and both the app and printer are easy to use, which isn't true for every portable photo printer on the market.

Xiaomi Black Shark 2 Review

The Black Shark 2 is a reasonably-priced mobile gaming powerhouse that stands out from the crowd. Find out how in our full review.
Should I Buy The Black Shark 2?
We’re impressed by what the Black Shark 2 offers gamers, with impressive specs, innovative gaming-focused tech and a very affordable price tag, but it’s not the perfect smartphone by any means.

Jenny Hval - The Practice of Love Music Album Reviews

The Norwegian artist brings her heady, personal text into the world of dance music to create an affecting, transcendental album that lives on the boundary of pop and the avant-garde.

In a statement accompanying the announcement of her seventh record, The Practice of Love, Jenny Hval admitted some trepidation about the overarching subject. “Love as a theme in art has been the domain of the canonized, big artists,” she wrote. “I have always seen myself as a minor character, a voice that speaks of other things.” Since emerging as a solo artist over a decade ago, some of these “other things” have included vampires, menstruation, gender identity, and capitalism. With those fascinations in mind, the Norwegian avant-garde artist manages to take the exhausted topic of love and transform it into something that feels both erudite and primal, a work that encourages both contemplation and movement.

Pixies - Beneath the Eyrie Music Album Reviews

After the disappointing Indie Cindy and the serviceable Head Carrier, the band shows signs of recapturing some of the spark of their classic albums.
During all those years that fans clamored for new music following the band’s 2004 reunion, who could have predicted that expectations for a new Pixies album would ever sink so low? After nearly a decade spent growing rusty on the reunion circuit, the band deflated what little excitement remained following Kim Deal’s departure with Indie Cindy, a comeback that not only failed to recreate their old mystique, but struggled to even understand what made the band so alluring in the first place. The sinister spark, the mischief, that giddy confusion they stirred with their blur of candy and sadism—it was totally absent, replaced by an at best anonymous, at worst obnoxious shrug of secondhand tics.

Metronomy - Metronomy Forever Music Album Reviews

A casual approach gives rise to some of the English electro-indie band’s best songs in years. But for anyone not already misty-eyed with nostalgia, a meandering 17-track album is a hard sell.
Metronomy Forever would be a braggadocious title if the music weren’t so self-deprecating. The sixth studio album from Devonshire musician Joe Mount is a tangled and tongue-in-cheek meditation on legacy, ending on a sparse postscript titled “Ur Mixtape,” which functions as a sort of punchline. Speak-singing his way through the memory of a fumbled young romance, Mount describes running into his crush’s brother, years later. The brother, recognising Mount, enthusiastically tells him how much he cherished the mixtape that Mount made, a decade earlier, to impress his sister. It’s a wry ending to an album that grapples with the question of how you’d like to be remembered: Even if you dedicate your life to crafting a legacy—in Mount’s case, a successful career at the forefront of ’00s and ’10s British e…

KAZU - Adult Baby Music Album Reviews

The lead singer and songwriter for Blonde Redhead enlists Ryuichi Sakamoto, Greg Saunier, and others for a cottony swirl of an album where everything is quieter than everything else.
Kazu Makino’s voice always served as ethereal counterpoint to Blonde Redhead’s music—if they were a gut punch, she was a gust of wind. Gradually, over the years, the group followed her lead, shedding the thick, serrated dissonance of its early records as though molting a buzzsaw cocoon. Five years since Barragan, the band’s last and presumably final album, Adult Baby marks Makino’s solo debut, and on it she sounds practically disembodied.

But finishing the game turns out to be only the start of a real adventure that takes Harvie, his dog Jerry, and his friend Monica deep into the forgotten realms of the city's old puppet museum.

MSI Optix MPG341CQR Review

Ever thought your gaming monitor needed more artificial intelligence? The MSI Optix MPG341CQR pairs novel AI features with some serious specs elsewhere, like a 144Hz 34in curved panel
Should I Buy The MSI Optix MPG341CQR?
The Optix MPG341CQR is a seriously impressive piece of kit that packs top - or near-top - specs across the board without quite being bank-breaking, rounded out by 'AI' features that are genuinely useful. A 34in curved panel, QHD, 144Hz, 1ms response, and great contrast and colour gamut mean this thing is as pretty to look at as almost any display out there - only the 380 nits max brightness lets the side down ever so slightly.

Should I Buy The Narcos: Rise Of The Cartels?
We'll await the full release of Narcos: Rise of the Cartels to deliver our full verdict and star rating, but based on what we've seen, it could be the one of the best officially licensed games in years. 

Apple Unveiled Its Newly Renovated Flagship Store At Fifth Avenue

It has been more than two years since the iconic cube on the top of the Apple Store on the Fifth Avenue was shut down for renovations. The Cupertino based tech giant has now unveiled the renovated location that is all set to open this week. Apple has joined hands with Foster + Partners to give the store with a new look which is almost double the size of the old one that had first opened in 2006.

(Sandy) Alex G - House of Sugar Music Album Reviews

The enigmatic songwriter’s latest album is full of vignettes that shift to reveal and conceal themselves in ways too unpredictable to be easily faked. It might be his best yet.
Alex Giannascoli’s songs draw weird poignancy from the ordinary. The artist who records under the enigmatic name (Sandy) Alex G mixes the real and the imagined, the possibly-biographical and the probably-fictional in the same breath. His songwriting is detailed but stubbornly opaque, swathed in a fuzz as thick and soft as dryer lint. This unassuming style, initially developed over a half-dozen EPs and albums released independently online, bleeds together DIY rock and homemade folk with snatches of country, industrial, or electronic. He’s become an undeniable, if low-wattage star of 2010s indie rock.

Lightning Bug - October Song Music Album Reviews

The gorgeous and hypnotic second Lightning Bug album focuses more than ever on songwriter Audrey Kang’s hushed voice and simple, soulful lyrics.
It was nearly five years ago when an unknown band named Lightning Bug uploaded their first recordings to SoundCloud and Bandcamp. The New York-based trio had yet to play a show by the time their debut album, Floaters, was released to an audience of friends, family, and a keen-eared blogger or two. Yet that 10-song LP belied a rare confidence and versatility. The music was a pastel tapestry woven from the threads of Stereolab, My Bloody Valentine, Camera Obscura, and plenty of early ’00s indie rock, stitched into a unique pattern. Floaters gradually accumulated new listeners and eventually found a spot on NME's list of the best debut albums of the year.
