Rabbitsss: Penguins

This is a delicate texture suspended between a colourful rendition of the rigors of contemporary music and ambient pop that somehow manages to retain a playful tone, slightly clouded by a few melancholic lines.

Aisles: 4.45 AM

The real variance between a band of sophisticated copycats and this bunch is indeed intelligence.

Mike Weis: Don't Know, Just Walk

Give a microphone to a musician and he will record the mortality that surrounds him. Give it to a musician with fear of mortality and he or she will describe what life is all about.

Kronos Quartet: A Thousand Thoughts

This is an album about diversity without intellectual compromises. It is how it is because this is the way it is. There is no re-elaboration or, worse, reinterpretation of the existing aesthetic principles.
