Thom Yorke – Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes

Thom Yorke continues his long romantic break with genre-less electronica. This album is boorish, predictable and miserable. Whilst there is a raw and earthy quality to it, it rarely veers away from his previous back catalog, offering very little excitement to the listener.

Spacious Sweep – VGM Vol. 1

This album is so eighties you’d think it was recorded with an Amiga. It’s heavy synth-laden, gated drums and glittery soundscapes are completely lost in time, and at times it can feel cheesier than a four seasons pizza. There’s some interesting and effective melodies dotted around this retro love-fest, but it does sound rather dated.

Daedalus – Drown Out

In this record you have something entirely out of the ordinary – an unusual electronic album. The melodies seem drunk with a certain stylistic wonkiness, but it works somehow. You also have a real mish-mash of samples that go beyond the basics and towards the stratosphere of highly accomplished producing.

Nvoki – ep1

This record has a real zesty and creative vibrancy to it. It’s mixed with some unorthodox vocal samples, drizzled with economical synth stabs and seasoned with a rich spice of percussion tomfoolery. It’s a well-produced effort and has an almost Chiptune feel at times.
