Review: Kaytranada, 99.9%

No matter how hard producers may try, there’s something that will always feel completely inhuman about electronic music. It’s in the details, which is to say that they’re all perfect.

Review: Anohni's Hopelessness

When I close my eyes and listen to “Hope There’s Someone” from I Am a Bird Now, a shattering lullaby of mortality and despair, I hear the resurrection of Nina Simone.
