Push the Sky Away, Nick Cave's 15th studio album with the Bad Seeds, is steeped in a calm, restrained atmosphere.

The Little Ones

The Dawn Sang Along

Branches Recording Collective

Feb 12, 2013 Music Issue #44 - Best of 2012 - Grimes

The sophomore full-length from this Southern California band is awash in jumpy melodies and general Cali-pop exuberance. Supported by falsetto vocals, the songs' arrangements range from the slightly synthesized ("Little Souls") to the ultra twee (about every other song on the album). More

Crafted with meticulous detail and restraint, The Kid With a Bike captures an intrinsic understanding of what it feels like when young people find themselves in that crucial moment of life when growing up isn't a choice, but rather an impreative. More

A swirling, centripetal force guides Veronica Falls' sophomore effort Waiting for Something to Happen. The album's 13 wistful numbers have a billowing jangle reminiscent of Felt, Talulah Gosh, The Aislers Setreally, name any C86 touchstone or one of their acolytes. More
