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.

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.

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.

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

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

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