Jessica Peters balances her electronic and acoustic leanings with considerable skill.

“Il Mare“‘s simple, well-paced story, honest performances, and heartfelt characters ensure that it’s more than just eye candy.

Smash the System (Singles and More) by Saint Etienne (Review)

A two-disc compilation that serves as an excellent introduction to Saint Etienne’s pristine, immaculate dance pop.

Silver Line on a Black Sea - The Potomac Accord

Silver Line on a Black Sea by The Potomac Accord (Review)

Projecto by Kobi (Review)

Kobi create pieces of stunning focus and intensity, especially given the unstructured approach behind their construction.
Formations - Mileece

Formations by Mileece (Review)

The album’s focus is more intent on creating dreamy textures rather than anything more concrete.

Bombay the Hard Way: Guns, Cars & Sitars by Dan The Automator (Review)

Guns, Cars & Sitars flows with a sense of style and funk that is deeply infectious, exotic, and most importantly, bad ass.
