Our review of Jack White's Lazaretto leads today's roundup. When he departed from the White Stripes, he also split up with their sound and style — our reviewer praised his new, risky musical explorations, saying that even when a track doesn't completely land, White still "goes down swinging." Read our review for more on this complex release.
Next, keep it in the family with the Swedish folk sisters in First Aid Kit. We've got a review of their bittersweet new album, Stay Gold, which is filled with sun-drenched, harmonious folk ballads.
Next, you can read our review of hip-hop storytellers clipping.'s new album, CLPPNG. Our reviewer found the release to be "more subtle" and "less aggressive" than clipping.'s previous releases, but that doesn't mean they've lost it. We've also got a review of Craft Spells' Nausea. This album appears effortless at first, but its complexity unfolds slowly; give our review a read to find out why it's worth a listen or two.
Wrapping up today's roundup is our review of Lydia Ainsworth's Right From Real Part I. Follow the link to get all the details on the new Arbutus signee's impressive, self-actualizing EP.
