Senaste album recensioner Pitchfork


  • Everything But the Girl: Amplified Heart
    Though their 1994 album became most famous for a surprise hit remix, Tracey Thorn and Ben Watt’s spare, pensive style never sounded more fully realized than here.

  • Ed Sheeran: No.6 Collaborations Project
    The pop star’s compilation features Cardi B, Chance the Rapper, and Stormzy in a sometimes nice but hopelessly transparent attempt at a hip-hop crossover.

  • Torche: Admission
    The metal band’s latest album retains the sludgy ferocity of their best work while opening up to include elements of shoegaze and dream-pop, to mixed success.

  • Bleached: Don’t You Think You've Had Enough?
    The Los Angeles punk duo get sober and burn off the fog of their last release for a crisper, punchier sound.

  • Daniel Caesar: CASE STUDY 01
    The Toronto singer croons his way into a sapiosexual world of love and philosophy, though not without controversy.

  • Jefre Cantu-Ledesma: Tracing Back the Radiance
    The experimental ambient musician's latest work is his most beatific and generous yet. It features a rotating cast of musicians, and feels like it is hovering off of the ground.

  • Khruangbin: Hasta El Cielo
    An album’s worth of dub versions of last year’s Con Todo El Mundo offer playful, if inessential, tweaks to the Houston band’s psych-funk sound.

  • Yuna: Rouge
    The Malaysian-born, L.A.-based musician moves away from folk-pop into simmering R&B, with features from Tyler, the Creator, Little Simz, and others.

  • Aaliyah: Aaliyah
    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 Aaliyah’s final album, her masterpiece.

  • Stranger Things: Soundtrack From the Netflix Original Series, Season 3
    Madonna, “Weird Al” Yankovic, and a bizarre remix of the Who are all part of a soundtrack that speaks to the usual critiques of the frothy, summertime sci-fi tale.

  • SO EMOTIONAL
    Everyone in hip-hop roots for Atlanta rapper Key! His summery follow-up to last year’s break-out 777 offers more evidence why.

  • Chinatown Slalom: Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?
    The Liverpool four-piece’s debut experiments liberally with pop’s conventions, taking a collage-like approach to chopped samples, ghostly harmonies, and pedal-driven guitars and keyboards.

  • Blarf: Cease & Desist
    The frenetic, sample-heavy album from Eric Andre’s clown alter-ego is hard to take seriously, which is probably the point.

  • Wilson Tanner: II
    The latest from the Melbourne electronic duo is a dawdler’s paradise, a daydream mapped to MIDI.

  • Purple Mountains: Purple Mountains
    David Berman’s first new music in over a decade is a marvelous collection of heartbreak, grief, and bitterness. His careful writing has never sounded so exacting or direct.

  • Joanna Sternberg: Then I Try Some More
    Sternberg’s debut balances stark themes of suicidal ideation, abject hopelessness, and self-hatred with whimsy and redemptive tenderness.

  • Jaden: ERYS
    The young polymath’s latest album is mostly a slog, the sound of an artist with a blurry vision and too many resources at his disposal.

  • Prince Daddy & the Hyena: Cosmic Thrill Seekers
    The Albany emo band offer us a fuck-up’s masterpiece, a hero’s journey following a guy who might conquer the world if he could leave his couch.

  • Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire
    Eight years after “Huzzah,” the Brooklyn rapper is back on his own label, back on his own terms, and just as defiant and provocative as ever.

  • Lolina: Who is experimental music?
    Looping and manipulating voices into strange, lumbering beatbox fugues, Inga Copeland undercuts expectation at every turn.

  • Equiknoxx: Eternal Children
    On their third album, the first release on their own label, Jamaica continue to find their voice; this time with vocals.

  • I'm Losing Myself
    Kameron Bogges makes one-man black metal that charts the hellish exhilarations and debilitating lows of bipolar disorder.

  • Bobby Krlic: Midsommar (Original Score)
    Bobby Krlic (aka the Haxan Cloak) scores Ari Aster’s nightmarish new film Midsommar, and the result is transfixing, gorgeous, and terrifying at once.

  • David Bowie: The ‘Mercury’ Demos
    A new installment in Parlophone’s ongoing reissue series revisits an oft-bootlegged 1969 session with fellow folkie John Hutchinson: literal bedroom tapes, but still revelatory.

  • Felicia Atkinson: The Flower and the Vessel
    The methodical arrangements and uncomfortably close whispers of the experimental French musician, poet, and visual artist bring us further inside her surreal world.

  • Various Artists: Revenge of the Dreamers III
    The first spoils of the fabled Dreamville sessions feature J. Cole and his label mostly thriving in a collaborative environment.

  • Jesca Hoop: STONECHILD
    With subtle electronic production tugging at the edges of her fingerpicked folk, the California singer-songwriter peers at the dark side of motherhood.

  • Daughter of Swords: Dawnbreaker
    The solo debut from folk singer Alexandra Sauser-Monnig reveals her effortless skill as a songwriter as she delivers an homage to the betwixt and between of a relationship in its twilight.

  • Nathan Bajar: Playroom
    An artist known for his photographs turns his hand to music; his hazy, lo-fi productions strive for the analog warmth of his portraits, but they lack his pictures’ intimacy and empathy.

  • Sofia Bolt: Waves
    On her debut, the French-American musician offers a broken heart, a jaded eye, oceans of surf-rock reverb, and a Van Dyke Parks cameo.
