Pitchfork reviews "Prom"

Pitchfork reviews Grooms’ Prom today. Pitchfork on Prom: “…For the follow-up, Prom, Grooms dive headlong into the sweeping erotic confusion that permeated the dreamier sphere of 90s alt-rock….Grooms’ aims give off a whiff of vague danger, a static unease occasionally broken by detuned guitars and skins-smashing breakdowns.” and “When Grooms hit the sticky, slack-jawed realities of album highlights “Expression of” and “Skating With Girl”, they rank among the few guitar-indie bands so unafraid to match intimacy with clarity.” Visit Pitchfork to read the whole review

Under the Radar reviews You are the Beat

Under the Radar Magazine reviews the debut album from Dream Diary, "You are the Beat"

BRAIDS "Native Speaker" out today.

Rolling Stone review “mix of euphoria and ambiguity” with “beatific psychedelic washes” Prefix Mag review “Braids are drawing from a wide pool of influences, from the Cocteau Twins (the vocal harmonies on “Plath Heart,” “Same Mum” and “Lammicken”) and krautrock (the relentless plinking of the keys on “Plath Heart”), to late-period Portishead (“Native Speaker”).
