Real Estate
Atlas
There are many parallels between »Atlas« and the previous »Days«. Real Estate don’t just copy themselves but instead manage to keep up their high standards.

Omar Souleyman
Wenu Wenu
Kieran Hebden has actually managed to lure »street level Syrian and Iranian Dabke«-Omar Souleyman into the studio. He pays back the favour by making surprisingly diversified music.

Arctic Monkeys
AM
The Arctic Monkeys have matured. There’s no more in-your-face on »AM«, but instead a relaxed groove, tilting into waters of blues every now and then.

Julia Holter
Loud City Song
Julia Holter is one of the few artists who consider pop an art form. Her latest and third record, »Loud City Song«, is a revelation.

Austra
Olympia
A record perfectly produced – solid pop-music with potential towards all possible directions and Tumblr-credibility. It’s nothing for the heart, though.

Matthew E. White
Big Inner
Real emotions, profound lyrics, impressive compositions of suspense and melodies: Matthew E. White’s debut, »Big Inner«, is a revelation.

Animal Collective
Centipede Hz
Animal Collective can’t really do mediocre records. At least that seemed to be the case until »Centipede Hz«. But times do change – unfortunately.

Peaking Lights
Lucifer
»Lucifer, son of the morning« is an extract from a well-known Reggae-tune. Not just the title shows the influence of Reggae and Dub on the second Peaking-Lights album.

Dirty Projectors
Swing Lo Magellan
With »Swing Lo Magellan«, David Longstreth and his Dirty Projectors are going for a new kind of comprehensibility and write songs – almost without any noticeable concept.

Hot Chip
In Our Heads
The record’s predecessors have created high expectations, which »In Our Heads« – despite being a typical Hot Chip record – cannot fulfill.

The Magnetic Fields
Love At The Bottom Of The Sea
Stephen Merrit returns to the roots of his Magnetic Fields with »Love At The Bottom Of The Sea« and proofs that he’s a magnificent storyteller.

Bonnie »Prince« Billy
Wolfroy Goes To Town
For years, Bonnie »Prince« Billy has been releasing his music on a constantly high level. His 21st record is no exception there. Nope, really, not at all.

Real Estate
Days
One of the indie-highlights of the year? Real Estate are just drifting along and naturally carry us with them. It’s hard not to like these songs.
