  • Alvvays Antisocialites cover art
    Alvvays // Antisocialites

    Twee and power pop generally dominate, but the soaring guitars and emotional heft of the lyrics give the album a feeling of lush drama as well

  • yeah yeah yeahs is is ep cover on fuzzcrush.xyz
    Yeah Yeah Yeahs // Is Is (EP)

    As '10x10' finishes off the 18-minute EP with the percussive throb of Killing Joke, I have to say, I’m feeling pretty chuffed about the upcoming record

  • ollie wride album cover on fuzzcrush.xyz
    Ollie Wride // Thanks in Advance

    That guy from the 'Running in the Night' song drops a solo album, and it's OK at points

  • swans - filth album cover on fuzzcrush.xyz
    Swans // Filth

  • skywave took the sun album art
    Skywave // Took the Sun (1998)

    Every once in a while, they stumble upon a perfect combination of cooing background vocals, rumbling ‘50s school dance bass lines and frenetic punk riffs.

  • isn't anything album cover
    My Bloody Valentine // Isn’t Anything

    MBV abandons its twinkle-eyed twee-pop influences for a more nonchalant, druggy coolness nicked from the Jesus and Mary Chain and Love and Rockets.

  • danse macabre album cover
    The Faint // Danse Macabre

    Blithely dismissed as amateurish dance-punk by some, The Faint nonetheless carved out a distinctive niche for themselves with a brand of paranoid, dystopian synth pop from their home base of sleepy Omaha, NE.

  • the kills - keep on your mean side album cover
    The Kills // Keep on Your Mean Side

    Outlaw rock 'n roll split evenly between lo-fi guitar crunch and lonesome bandit blues

  • bloweyelashwish album cover 1993 Projekt scott cortez
    Loveliescrushing // Bloweyelashwish

    Deep in the American southwest and far from the Seattle alt-rock gold rush, Scott Cortez creates a uniquely wordless, gothic reinterpretation of My Bloody Valentine’s otherworldly sound, coupled with an irritating penchant for Cocteau Twins’ nonsensical song titles

  • dirty beaches - badlands cover - fuzzcrush review
    Dirty Beaches // Badlands

    Badlands exhumes the exquisite corpse of an America that never truly existed. Think Route 66, neon-lit roadside diners and American Bandstand. The sound is immediate, and the atmosphere unmistakeable.
