Review: CHVRCHES — The Bones of What You Believe

In synthpop trio CHVRCHES’ debut album, The Bones of What You Believe, listeners can find a departure from the catchy-with-no-substance tracks that are often produced by the genre. The album, released September 24, is filled with lyricism and emotion that make the tracks ...

Review: Jamie Lidell — Jamie Lidell

There was a compilation of electronic music the record label Warp released many years ago, and on the cover was a robot reclining in a chair listening to music through his headphones. That image describes many of Warp’s bands: stationary, subtle, head music. Not so for Jamie
