Justice - Cross

It’s amazing that I hadn’t heard this yet. It kicks SO MUCH ASS. It’s danceable, but it’s really heavy, and I admire Justice for bringing these unexpected sounds to the French electronic scene. 8/10.


David Byrne - American Utopia

I’ve never heard solo Byrne, so I won’t be able to compare, but it’s an impressive record. It’s groovy af, and the chords and harmonies are incredible. 8/10.


of Montreal - White Is Relic / Irrealis Mood

It’s OK. I don’t know what he’s trying to do sometimes, but it’s fun. 7/10.
