Senaste album recensioner Pitchfork


  • XXXTentacion: Bad Vibes Forever
    His purported final posthumous album is more of monument to XXXTentacion’s brand rather than his artistry.

  • Camila Cabello: Romance
    The pop singer’s second album some memorable moments, but Cabello evokes a vision love so universalized that it blurs it out of focus.

  • Hurt Valley: Glacial Pace
    Singer-songwriter Ben Collins joins the Woodsist camp with a light, loose collection of songs built for placid and rudderless afternoons.

  • Harry Styles: Fine Line
    Harry Styles hides himself inside of a mystic pop-rock record that keeps us away from who he is as a songwriter and fledgling rock star.

  • Sean McCann: Puck
    This collage work by the Los Angeles composer weaves together stray chamber compositions, ambient recordings, voices, and more, yielding a mesmerizing sound both dense and diaphanous.

  • Jme: Grime MC
    The London grime star has made the strongest record of his career, chock full of nimble, intricate raps that seamlessly integrate the nerdiest of signifiers.

  • Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial
    This Compton chameleon borrows flows from anyone and everyone but gets away with it thanks to his sturdy songwriting.

  • Junius Paul: Ism
    The Chicago bassist’s solo debut—featuring guests including Makaya McCraven, Isaiah Spencer, and Tomeka Reid—ranges widely, from free jazz to post-bop to meditative tone poems.

  • Sofie Birch: Island Alchemy
    The Copenhagen composer’s second album this year, and her first for Oakland’s Constellation Tatsu, offers a dynamic take on ambient music, one meant for active listening.

  • Shed: Oderbruch
    The techno artist discovers a softer, warmer side in an album named for his childhood home.

  • Mary J. Blige: HERstory Vol. 1
    In the ’90s, Blige prophesied a future in which hip-hop would be baked directly into pop music. The hits on this collection show her just getting started.

  • Akasha System: Echo Earth
    Gentle but full of motion, the Portland, Oregon producer’s seemingly uncomplicated music brings the language of left-field ’90s dance to the great outdoors.

  • Kelsey Lu: Blood Transfusion
    The Los Angeles singer-songwriter’s music gets a beat-oriented makeover in a collection of remixes from Skrillex, Omar S, Lafawndah, and other club producers.

  • Georgia Maq: Pleaser
    The lead singer for the barn-burning punk act Camp Cope shifts into synth-pop and romantic love for her solo debut.

  • Courtney Barnett: MTV Unplugged Live in Melbourne
    The Australian singer-songwriter uses the Unplugged format as a showcase for the community of musicians she’s cultivated.

  • Jeff Rosenstock / Laura Stevenson: Still Young EP
    Two friends—one a longtime Neil Young fan, one a relative newcomer—team up for a warm, unpretentious covers EP that serves as an unlikely primer.

  • YNW Melly: Melly vs. Melvin
    The incarcerated rapper, awaiting trial for murder, releases an album of second-rate material and third-rate Young Thug-isms.

  • Andrés: Andrés IV
    Eight years after his last album and seven since the crowd-pleasing “New for U,” the Detroit house and hip-hop staple shows off his encyclopedic knowledge of soul, disco, and Latin music.

  • Julien Chang: Jules
    The Baltimore music student’s soft-focus popcraft plays like a lost link between the hazed-out aesthetic of chillwave and the smooth precision of sophisti-pop.

  • Various Artists: Until the End of the World (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
    A new reissue of the illusory soundtrack to Wim Wenders’ 1991 road film, which featured the final recordings of CAN and Talking Heads, highlights its forlorn and decadent melancholy.

  • Beat Happening: We Are Beat Happening
    An essential new vinyl box set collects all of the trailblazing Olympia band’s records. It is a monument to the spartan trio’s music and their seismic influence on the indie rock that followed in their wake.

  • To Magnetize Money and Catch a Roving Eye
    O’Rourke’s latest drone project, running to over four hours, is darker and more dreamlike than his Steamroom series, and one of his most meditative releases yet.

  • My Chemical Romance: Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge
    Each Sunday, Pitchfork takes an in-depth look at a significant album from the past, and any record not in our archives is eligible. Today, we revisit My Chemical Romance’s second album, an operatic pop-rock behemoth that became an icon for outcasts.

  • Ben Frost: Catastrophic Deliquescence (Music From Fortitude 2015-2018)
    The Iceland-based composer’s score for the Arctic crime drama shivers with ominous uncertainty that’s better appreciated in its original context.

  • Karenn: Grapefruit Regret
    Blawan and Pariah’s hardware-centric techno duo returns with its debut album, trading some of the distortion of early releases for a funkier, slipperier sound that still bangs.

  • Roc Marciano: Marcielago
    The gritty and elusive Hempstead MC caps off a decade of profound influence with more photographic narratives, gnarled slang, and evocative soul samples.

  • Croatian Amor / Varg2TM: Body of Carbon
    Beneath its sharp edges and heavy drums, the producers’ second collaboration takes a gentle, humanistic approach.

  • 20 Years of Fabric
    The iconic London nightclub celebrates two decades with 20 tracks that survey the house, techno, and bass-music styles synonymous with the venue, with mixed results.

  • Burial: Tunes 2011 to 2019
    A 149-minute anthology maps the UK producer’s expanding multiverse, gathering nearly every solo tune he released on Hyperdub in a fertile, eight-year run of EPs full of surprises (and vinyl crackle).

  • Labyrinth
    The producer and visual artist builds an uncanny, disturbing world on his debut LP that recalls his collaborations with Björk, Arca, and FKA twigs.
