Kaleem Taylor – Version EP

A superb collection of refined R&B

Lily Allen – Trigger Bang (feat. Giggs)

A low-key but superlative turn from pop's original tearaway

Christopher Blake – Numb

The Dallas kid comes good with a flotation tank of R&B-pop

Bassette – Bermuda

Joe Hertz produces a low-key wonder for this R&B gal

Sita – Around Me

Smoky and ambient R&B from a rising talent

biLLLy – Moving

A graduation from bedroom pop to full-on bop

REVIEW: Miguel – War & Leisure

Huh, War, what is it good for? Not much, really

REVIEW: Björk – Utopia

Another expansive & more fantastical record, this time with cinematic hope

REVIEW: Paloma Faith – The Architect

An eccentric spider-diagram of a record that only slightly under-delivers on its promise

REVIEW: Tove Lo – Blue Lips

Rounded, hedonistic, and relentlessly brilliant pop from one of the genre's best

REVIEW: Charlotte Gainsbourg – Rest

Endearing if unremarkable bilingual pop romps

REVIEW: Taylor Swift – Reputation

Disposable Gretchen Wieners-pop for the rightfully scorned


A star is undoubtedly born on this tremendous bit of London soul
