    The update wanders wildly through the valley for Semper Femina by Laura Marling, a fascinating project exploring the subtleties of feminine passion and love.

    The update breaks out of the cold with Gang Signs & Prayer by Stormzy, where I finally discuss grime and this long-awaited - and yet watered-down - debut.

    The update storms the castle with another movie review of Beauty And The Beast (2017), where I dig into the live-action remake that is significantly lesser than the animated classic.

    The update can't find its place on Infinite Worlds by Vagabon, where I discuss representation and diversity in indie rock and a fascinating little debut.

    The update splits the passionfruit on More Life by Drake, where I discuss this overlong, whiny, and frustrating theft of too many genres that he evasively calls a playlist.

    The update finds the lush life with So Good by Zara Larsson, a potent but mostly inconsistent sophomore project.

    The update tears down the walls with a shotgun (don't ask) for Hot Thoughts by Spoon, where the indie rock veterans add psychedelia to another ridiculously catchy and smart record.

    The update goes backwards on Spirit by Depeche Mode, their most political and depressingly defeatist record to date.

    The update touches down with The Upper Hand by AllttA, where I discuss the other collaboration from Mr. J. Medeiros and a pretty good debut at that.

    The update screams your name in the rain on Eternity, In Your Arms by Creeper, where I dig into camp, melodrama, and a pretty terrific debut from this UK punk band.

    The update wonders why you, of all people, have kids on HEAVY META by Ron Gallo, who brings a killer set of smart, biting, and relentlessly varied and catchy garage rock that's among the best of 2017.

    The update shoves this in the corner of its mind on Golden Eagle by Holly Macve, where I talk about UK country and an otherwise disappointing record that gets personal for me - and not in a good way.

    The update drowns in the wastes with Emperor Of Sand by Mastodon, where I try to discuss this record, which is the furthest from metal they've ever been.

    The update stumbles across the desiccated wastes with Winter by Fen, where I adopt a new thumbnail design and discuss one of the best records of 2017, black metal or otherwise.

    The update is checking its newsfeed as it dies on Pure Comedy by Father John Misty, his longest, most alienating project exploring the human condition to date.

    The update sets itself on fire with 'Memories... Do Not Open' by The Chainsmokers.

    The update finds its cape with ALL-AMERIKKKAN BADA$$ by Joey Bada$$, where I discuss this simpler but more populist, hook-driven, and terrific sophomore album.

    (also, since posting wasn't working above, the link to the previous review is here: )

    Nobody's praying for the update with DAMN. by Kendrick Lamar, where I discuss this self-constrained but potent and fascinating record from one of the best MCs in the game.

    The update isn't going to hell quite fast enough with Coming Home by Falling In Reverse, where I (for no good reason) discuss this post-hardcore/pop punk group's stab at space rock.

    The update hits up the paradise bar on inFinite by Deep Purple, where I dig into the long-running hard rock act's twentieth (!!!) and possibly final record.

    The update tracks the tigerman on Silver Eye by Goldfrapp, a frustratingly languid and 'mystical' record that doesn't compel whatsoever.

    The update arises out of the pile of bodies for Arca by Arca, where I dig into hedonism, sadomasochism, and a record that unfortunately underwhelms in its exploration of both.

    The update hunts for the diamond words on Jason Eady by Jason Eady, where the country veteran refines his formula even further to make one of the best records of 2017.

    The update starts tap dancing through the palaces with magic (???) on The Ride by Nelly Furtado, where I dig into my long, complicated history with this Canadian pop artist and her strange indie turn.
