Days Are Gone album

Album stream: HAIM – ‘Days Are Gone’

Thanks to a steady stream of singles, videos and festival shows over the past year or so it feels like LA siblings HAIM have been around for ages. In actual fact, they haven’t even released their debut album yet. That’s all about to change next week when the long-awaited LP – Days Are Gone – […]

Yuck Glow And Behold

Album stream: Yuck – ‘Glow And Behold’

After lead singer Daniel Blumberg left earlier this year things didn’t look good for London-based fuzz-rockers Yuck. But since his departure (to form new band Hebronix) Yuck have regrouped and, with guitarist Max Bloom taking up vocal duties, sound better than ever. They’ve already shared the aptly-titled new track ‘Rebirth‘ as well as the brilliant […]

Deltron 3030 album Event 2

Album stream: Deltron 3030 – ‘Event 2’

Forget Jay Z’s Holy Fail, Yeezus and the rest, there’s only one hip-hop album worth getting excited about in 2013 – Event 2 by the mighty hip-hop triumvirate of Del Tha Funky Homosapien, Dan The Automator and Kid Koala – collectively known as Deltron 3030. Back in 2000 they released an awesome futuristic self-titled concept […]

Lorde album

Album stream: Lorde – Pure Heroine

It’s fair to say the New Zealand singer-songwriter Lorde has been the breakout hit of 2013. Her singles ‘Tennis Court’, ‘Team‘ and ‘Royals’ have pretty much dominated summer playlists and the precocious 16 year old has found herself playing at festivals all over the world. Not bad for someone without an album to her name! […]

Feel Good album

Album stream: The Internet – ‘Feel Good’

As a collective, and record label, Odd Future is most associated with new-wave hip hop and rap from the likes of Tyler, The Creator, Earl Sweatshirt, Hodgy Beats and Domo Genesis. The production duo known as The Internet are their unsung heroes though. Their debut album, 2011’s Purple Naked Ladies marked them out as experimental […]

The Electric Lady album

Album stream: Janelle Monae – ‘The Electric Lady’

It’s all about the big album streams today! Arctic Monkeys have just made their album AM available to stream, and now neo-soul-funk-pop boundary-pusher Janelle Monae has made her second album The Electric Lady available to stream.
