Fruit Bats – Gold Past Life 🍍

“There won’t be many albums in 2019 with as many quotable, cut-to-the-marrow lines as this one has, whether he’s finding hard-fought maturity in a handful of optimistic love songs or abandoning all hope of accumulating wisdom in some heartbreakers that determine the past is destiny.” – Variety

Cassius – Dreems 🌙

“Released just days after Philippe Zdar’s accidental death, the duo’s fifth album marks a joyous return to the emotive, immaculately produced house music of their early years.” – Pitchfork

SG Lewis – Dawn EP 🌅

“Dawn is the final phase of the 3 part album I have spent the last 18 months working on. Dawn captures the energy of the end of the night, the intimacy of the quieter moments, and the emotions felt after the energetic highs of Dark. It is a more introspective phase, and is the most personal music I think I have ever released.” SG Lewis – TotalNtertainment

Black Midi – Schlagenheim 🚬

“Schlagenheim will open up a whole new bottle of weird, if you let it in. It’s Troutmask Replica for a new generation, or perhaps it’s Can attempting to recreate the madness that Captain Beefheart’s enigmatic classic contained, although in reality it defies description and just simply needs to be heard.” – Music OMH

Mannequin Pussy – Patience 🚿

“It would be fair to read Patience as a “break-up album,” but it might be more accurate to consider it an “intervention album.” Most of these songs find our narrator pushing herself to escape circumstance and create a life that she’s proud to live in. In order to do that, she must first learn to actually like herself. ” – Stereogum
