Senaste album recensioner Pitchfork


  • Roxy Music: For Your Pleasure
    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 Bryan Ferry and Brian Eno’s glam-rock, art-school masterpiece.

  • Lightning Bolt: Sonic Citadel
    The noise duo’s seventh album is the most life-affirming and accessible music they’ve ever made.

  • Pelada: Movimiento Para Cambio
    Velvety, ’90s-inspired deep house and industrial-punk sing-shouting make for a surprisingly complementary contrast.

  • Chromatics: Closer to Grey
    Chromatics set their surprise “seventh” album at the witching hour, telling a sometimes-muddled tale of heartbroken lovers reaching out to the spirit realm.

  • Lindstrøm: On a Clear Day I Can See You Forever
    The Scandinavian synthesizer maven pays dusts off dozens of arcane vintage machines in an all-hardware studio recording meant to summon the spirit of bygone circuitry.

  • billy woods: Terror Management
    On his bleak new album, woods doubles down on the misery that snakes through all his music.

  • Bill Orcutt: Odds Against Tomorrow
    Stepping away from the overt historicism of previous recordings, the guitarist opts for a subtler—but just as expressive—investigation of folk and blues.

  • Big Thief: Two Hands
    The second landmark album this year from Big Thief is raw, tactile, and essential. The intimate songs zoom in on a band that feels, at this moment, totally invincible.

  • Gong Gong Gong: Phantom Rhythm ???? (?????)
    The Beijing-based post-punk duo stack garage instrumentation, Ali Farka Touré melodies, and dissonance without a whiff of the baroque.

  • Tell All Your Friends
    The newly reissued landmark debut from the Amityville emo band takes heartbreak, jealousy, and depression to an operatic intensity, but does so with sharp wit, a knowing wink, and oh so many hooks.

  • that dog.: Old LP
    The ’90s alt-rockers’ first new album in more than 20 years has the vibe of a beloved record that was, for whatever reason, sitting on a shelf.

  • The Menzingers: Hello Exile
    What does it mean to get older in punk? Were the good old days ever that good? Though the titles change, the Pennsylvania band’s song remains the same.

  • Robert Glasper: Fuck Yo Feelings
    Throwing open his studio doors, the pianist aims for a loose, mixtape-like vibe, but the stacked guest list yields a scattershot party that only ends up overstaying its own welcome.

  • Nick Cave: Ghosteen
    Forty years into his career, Nick Cave emerges with one of his most powerful albums yet, an endlessly giving and complex meditation on mortality and our collective grief.

  • Summer Walker: Over It
    The 23-year-old Atlanta singer’s slow-groove R&B plays out like a telenovela, feeling irresistibly fresh, messy, and human.

  • Automatic: Signal
    The trio’s debut is an exercise in post-punk and no-wave galvanism crafted from throbbing bass, tight-zipped drumbeats, and buzzing synths.

  • Wilco: Ode to Joy
    Wilco’s 11th album is direct and spacious, centering on the beauty of quiet revelation.

  • Kris Davis: Diatom Ribbons
    Aided by Nels Cline, Marc Ribot, and Esperanza Spalding, the New York pianist and her band mix lyrical song form, turntablism, and avant-garde strategies in unusually fluid fashion.

  • DIIV: Deceiver
    The shoegaze band’s third album is another portrait of addiction and recovery, but this time there’s no suggestion of a victory lap. The lyrics may wallow, but the music soars.

  • Carla dal Forno: Look Up Sharp
    The Australian multi-instrumentalist and songwriter’s second album finds a home in the shadowy space between post-punk, trip-hop, and lo-fi folk.

  • Glenn Branca: The Third Ascension
    The celebrated avant-garde composer’s final work is a shrine to ecstatic disorientation.

  • Wives: So Removed
    The Queens band Wives channel the bygone squalor of NYC’s Y2K rock renaissance.

  • Danny Brown: uknowhatimsayin¿
    On his fifth album, executive-produced by Q-Tip, Danny Brown ascends to a sort of hip-hop classicist nirvana and remains one of the most inventive and dimensional rappers working today.

  • Kaputt: Carnage Hall
    Building atop a wobbly foundation of post-punk totems, the Glaswegian sextet make complicated songs sound fun.

  • John Mayer: Room for Squares
    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 the auspicious debut that sent a 23-year-old guitarist into the stratosphere.

  • Sheff G: The Unluccy Luccy Kid
    The Brooklyn drill artist follows up his two-year-old hit “No Suburban” with a grim and terse debut LP.

  • Michael Vincent Waller: Moments
    The New York-based composer’s third album spotlights piano and vibraphone, as attuned to the notes struck as to the overtones produced and their natural decay.

  • Harmony Woods: Make Yourself at Home
    The 20-year-old singer-songwriter’s clear vocals and candid lyrics feel at home in the Philadelphia DIY scene that raised her.

  • Angel Olsen: All Mirrors
    The breathtaking songs of Angel Olsen’s fifth album are fleshed out by a 12-piece string section and deliver grand gestures about romance, authenticity, and being simply at the mercy of how we feel.

  • Red River Dialect: Abundance Welcoming Ghosts
    Animated with a new intensity, the Cornwall band’s fifth album may be its most ingenious and immersive mix of folk and rock yet.
