"The vocals in vernacular languages add another layer of mysteriousness to the production that must be better appreciated on a dancefloor." [On "Flechas"]
"In the context of the 2000s Latin American folklore movement (in which ZZK Records is still a leading force), Uji approaches this extremely rich shared cultural baggage with his mind set in the technological present, offering a sweet, conscious and danceable clash of the ancient and the modern."
- Rhythm Passport
"Amid gurgles, water drops, and swooshing sounds, also featuring artist and healer Zola Dubnikova, the song is an evocative, meditative affair that drifts into the abyss"

"True Body are gorgeous new(ish) entrants in the diverse modern scene encompassing post-punk, goth, dream pop, synth pop and related genres"
"Ten wide-eyed, fence-swinging songs that divinely balance post-punk tradition with anthemic ambition"
"A lighter, dreamy tone and a deep, baleful mood amid glimmers of reverberating guitar chime and miasmic washes of synths, and airily sighing backing vocals"

Few songwriters are able to pinpoint difficult emotions and address them with such devastating clarity and disarming humor quite like Field Medic. The long-running musical project of Los Angeles-based musician Kevin Patrick Sullivan, he makes music that’s so startlingly honest that it can cut the tension in any room. He’s excelled at self-reflection and making deceptively simple folk songs about loneliness, sobriety, and growing up. But for his latest LP, grow your hair long if you're wanting to see something you can change, which is out October 14 via Run For Cover, Sullivan decided to completely reinvent his approach to recording. The result is his most ambitious, fully-formed, and emotionally resonant collection of tracks yet.

"It's a delight to hear that, over 20 years into Lewis and Best's partnership, they are pushing their recognizable but rarely formulaic sound into fresh territory."
"F&M hit peak funkiness on this fat-free blent of Krautrock pulses and pop melodies." **** 4 Stars
"Slight Variations reaches back into the archive and out into the void in equal measure, splicing the best bits of the group's enviable catalogue of linear, krautrock driven grooves with just enough off-piste eccentricities to keep things fresh."

In the infamous words of LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy, Florida indie-pop band Driveaway have metaphorically “sold their turntables and bought guitars” on today’s release of “Wishing Well.” Stepping out from their typical synth-driven indie pop earworms, today’s single dials up the angst and let’s the guitar and drums take center stage. Lyrically, the song documents too many days bleeding together from putting on a front for others and where that breaking point lies – Stream.
