    Despite the prevalence of rootsy Americana throughout the album, there are a pleasing variety of styles on display.

    It could be said that a work as strong as Majesty Shredding cements Superchunk as an important band or a permanent indie fixture, but that's a bit of a misnomer. If anything this record is simply proof that Superchunk are going to make the music they want to make regardless of whether it fits into a modern context or not.

    It might not be entirely mega, but there's enough to fawn over with this robust collection of breezy and inventive Americana.

    It could be argued that Soul Time! itself is nothing new within the Dap-Kings catalogue, made up as it is of old tunes (Longer And Stronger, for instance, was written to celebrate Jones's 50th birthday in 2006), but these favourite oldies are collected here for the first time, and that's really something.

    This is very much an album that feels necessary right now--one that packs a political punch without being didactic or evangelical--and offers positive thinking, including a clarion call of co-operative and community responses to global issues.

    With this debut it is clear that O'Halloran and Wiltzie have prosperously joined neutralist ambient and 20th century classical music together. In so doing they've formed aesthetically pleasing sounds which can allure every night-time audience.

    Some may describe this album as too raucous and little more than a racket, but it's a glorious racket.

    For a dance music album, Swim sounds not only refreshingly organic, but also remarkably downbeat. Most remarkable of all, perhaps, is the way that Caribou have succeeded in marrying up these two things and still managed to make an album that is infused with a rhythm, a groove and a watery loveliness all of its own.

    This being Cave, classy lyrical dexterity is never far away. But here the fire and brimstone preacher is a little less po-faced than much of his back catalogue, allowing humour (still black as coal) to gain the upper hand.

    It feels like the deepest and most soulful album she has made.

    Chatma never feels like any kind of compromise, and the presence of Tinariwen singer Wonou Walet Sidati adds a new dimension to the music, one that sometimes threatens to overpower Ousmane Ag Mossa’s less imposing vocal presence.

    With Blackbirds poignantly beautiful in many places, it may just be the one to do so.

    Saturns Pattern may lack an apostrophe but there’s nothing missing from his musical grammar. He’s still in his prime as a musician.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This is a special album, make no doubt about it, casting its spell as it makes both a moving memorial and an example of raw talent. If techno with a soul is what you're after, then look no further than this.

    Their first album was one of the strongest debuts in recent memory and this is an equally impressive follow-up.
    • 83 Metascore

    This is an album that definitely deserves your interest, one of the best that New Weird America has thrown across the Atlantic in a long, long time.

    So from no albums in 13 years to two high quality long players in the space of six months - the star of Gil Scott-Heron is very much in the ascendency again, his influence on today's culture thrown into ever greater relevance by one of its finest new producers. It's that rare thing--a properly fine remix album.

    • 90 Critic Score
    At times, there seems to be almost too much to process in Nikki Nack, and it’s true that this is certainly an album that repays multiple listens and complete immersion. That immersion will pay dividends, for Merrill Garbus has produced yet another deftly thrilling listen.

    There are numerous highlights to be found across these songs but Herod 2014 and Fetish stand out in particular.

    Every track is quite full of life and holds no lack of energy that characterizes good, classic British rock ‘n’ roll.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    For now, this is a hypnotic, well executed, if not altogether thrilling collection.

    Despite the intro being borrowed from the trailer to American Gangster it essentially reclaims the genre Shawn Carter helped to pioneer from the studio gangstas and plastic pimps that hip-pop is swamped with.

    More melancholic than mechanical, Severant is a testament to the strength of the human imagination.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    There’s too much spirit in this cocktail for the mixer to spoil it.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    In sum, How To Stop Your Brain In An Accident cements Future Of The Left as unique.
    • 83 Metascore

    Indeed, if you are looking for surprises then you won't find many. As well as stellar production, another Fagen trademark is his willingness, even necessity, for songs to run their natural course.

    It's a testament to their talent that by their seventh album they're still continuing to develop and reinvent themselves.

    This is a vital album for anyone interested in how musical traditions are disseminated, absorbed and reinvented.
    • 83 Metascore

    It is the sound of a band entirely comfortable and confident with where they are.
