Soho Rezanejad album review at The Quietus

Rezanejad’s vocals – a heady mix of Nico’s monotone croon, the booming and unexpected inner strength of Zola Jesus and the idiosyncratic dexterity of Kate Bush – lends an resonance that is perfectly in sync with the electronic soundscapes and silences that form the bedrock of her music.

Craig Finn 'We All Want the Same Things' album review in The Guardian

As ever, there are plenty of character studies – of lovers and barflies and drug dealers – but there’s also a sense of Finn mining his own past for narrative detail.

The Molochs 'The literary influences behind their barn-storming debut record' on NME

Dearly Beloved on Rock Sound

Dearly Beloved album review on Rock Sound

An uncompromising study of just how much noise two people can make, it’s part experimental noise a la Sonic Youth and part heavy riffs a la Queens Of The Stone Age, wrapped into one deafening fireball.

The Molochs album review in The Guardian

The Molochs album review in The Guardian

Like their fellow Los Angelenos, the Molochs are in thrall to that point in the mid-60s where beat groups, garage bands and psychedelic outfits began to merge into each other.
