"[M o t h e r is] an R&B project injected with 80’s synth pop, electronic steroids, and countless packs of hand-rolled cigarettes. […] "Victim" tackles originality and abstract stylings, eliciting the emotions of a video that you shouldn’t be watching."





 

"Building on their classic 90s nostalgia sound, the Michigan outfit dishes some upbeat folk-rock here while vocalist Matthew Milia sings of times past and passing like a peppy Conor Oberst."

Inviting an artist known for a larger-than-life stage presence and erratic-nearing-on-spastic (in a good way) dance moves to play a stripped-down set in a confined space is a recipe for disaster. And yet [MØ] manages to translate the explosive energy of her band’s live show to this exclusive performance of her song “Pilgrim””

"This stunning collection of 13 songs, such as the irresistibly lush "I’m Leaving" or the seductive "Vampire On My Fridge," are masterpieces in subtle evocative power. These are tracks that build, slowly gaining momentum with lilting melodies and waves of percussion, all topped off with Karazija’s mellow croon."

"[Sprawlhunt] mix their passion of ’60s and ’70s rock and punk with a lyrical flow creating an all-out attack on the listener […] [‘Cut/Patterns’] fully showcases their spectrum of influences and versatility musically with promise ahead for the project."

"The best anonymous artists don’t just wear masks. They leave you wanting to rip it from their faces. While ArchiveX‘s disguise is a proverbial one, his debut offering “Pilgrim Of Sorrow” leaves us hungry for more from this mystery man"

"“Vampire on My Fridge” has string arrangements that would make Sigur Rós proud. Add in a hypnotic, clanging percussion, and Karazija’s lilting tenor and you’ve got an enticing teaser to Low Roar’s latest creation."

"Directing the GUNAKADEIT video was such an amazing experience. The song is so cool and interesting, so I was really inspired to create art alongside it. I listened to it three times and then saw the entire thing. I really wanted to capture the world of the song: it’s like living in a dark paradise, where beauty exists but is masked by our own thoughts and inhibitions. That’s what I was attempting to show with the video, that the world is beautiful and fucked up and both are the same thing. We’re all just trying to get by and squeeze some life out of living."

"The dreamy black and white clip is cool enough to have on loop for the rest of the day. Which, come to think of it, is a pretty good idea…"

"The retro girl group vibe, undulating cheerfulness and jangly dance beat work well for the Danish electro-pop songstress — and despite the misleading title, the song is the perfect soundtrack for a sing-into-your-hairbrush slumber party scene."

"One of the most diverse and unique acts coming out of [Toronto] is Sprawlhunt— a rap-producer duo with an edgy punk-rock-inspired aesthetic […] ["Suede Bomber"] is indicative of the mass amount of potential Sprawlhunt has."

"Goldroom’s “Embrace” has already been tearing up the audio portion of the music-related Internet (Spotify, Soundcloud, etc.), but now A.V. Club readers (and everyone else) can check out the visual component to the dreamy cut."
