    Review: Deerhunter – Monomania (4AD, 2013)

    4AD, 2013

    It appears that whatever Brian Cox, the frontman of Deerhunter, decides to pursue, it will be touched by a strange genius. Be it the premiere of the title song from Monomania on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon where he used fake blood and bandages to created the illusion of a missing finger – a nod to his father who actually had recently lost a few fingers in a saw-related accident – or him performing concerts in girly frocks.

    Review: Milo – things that happen at day / things that happen at night (Hellfyre Club, 2013)

    Hellfyre Club, 2013

    The first time I heard Milo, I felt the same kind of elation that I felt for the debut album by The Streets – the freshness of the new and unknown, plus that special something that makes you want to listen to it again after the initial excitement wanes. However, unlike Mike Skinner, Milo's follow up to his debut (I Wish My Brother Rob Was Here), is still interesting and engaging.
