(84) LAST NIGHT ON EARTH/Noah and the Whale: our self-centered and self-conscious teenage Kinks are happier than before, sincere as always #7.5

(83) TALUMPATI/Gloc-9: at the center of it is not gloc-9’s trite poetry and hypnopompic confessions but the guests whose verses shine through #6

(81) 21/ADELE: a soap starring adele and her vocal prowess ends when she has finally grown wings and soared #8

(80) GLOSS DROP/Battles: laser/beams, fridge/magnets, electro/limousines, and dance/turbos flailing around in a frantic shambles #8

(79) CIVILIZATION EP/Justice: the track itself is a little shy, but the remixes will certainly prep you for the new record #6.5

(72) NATIVE SPEAKER/Braids: montreal quartet hurls lush harmonies before running out of glitter and grease #6

(71) O, EVELYN…/Owen: “all that I need is to know that I’ll know you when you’re older” daddy mike matures and remains a sweetie #7

(68) HALLS EP/Halls: sumptuous and scrumptious—cloudy with a chance of buzz-balls—skittering before it finally explodes #8.5

(67) BLACK UP/Shabazz Palaces: space(d out)(t)rap “50 years in the making,” at the center of which are fidgety monuments about to keel over #8

(66) OH SUNSHINE/Oh Sunshine: emily’s voice takes you in before mikio’s guitar takes you away; one reason you should dump she and him #7.5

(65) SOMETHING LEFT BEHIND/Transit: a group of boys got an A+ in Platitudes 101 #3.5
