4:13 Dream may open with the doomed romanticism of “Underneath the Stars,” but that slow-crawling mini-epic is a feint, momentarily disguising how this is the Cure’s poppiest album since 1992’s Wish. Poppy doesn’t necessarily mean that 4:13 Dream spills over with fully formed pop songs along the lines of “High” and “Friday I’m in Love,” as the 13 songs here lack the tight construction of those two minor classics, along with their beguiling light touch. Despite the preponderance of sprightly tempos and singsong hooks, nothing about 4:13 Dream feels especially light, perhaps because Robert Smith chooses to pair these purported pop songs with a heavy dose of affected angst. On the “The Reasons Why,” the catchiest tune here, Smith sings about suicide with no trace of irony, or even that much interest, either; it’s hard to escape the notion that he sings about darkness because that is what is expected from the king of goth. The pristine production emphasizes Smith’s stylized mannerisms — nowhere more so than on “The Only One,” where his caterwauls feel too clearly articulated — which in turn highlights that for all the purported pop of 4:13 Dream, only “The Perfect Boy” and “This. Here and Now. With You” have hooks that dig underneath the skin. These two songs are buried in the back of 4:13 Dream, surrounded by too many half-baked tunes and formless, colorless sound surges on either side, music that perfectly fits the definition of the pop side of the Cure without ever truly embodying the spirit.

Tom Morello is living proof of the transformative power of rock n roll. As the co-founder of Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave, and Prophets Of Rage, and through collaborations with everyone from Bruce Springsteen to Johnny Cash, he has continually pushed the limits of what one man can do with six strings. But on his latest album The Atlas Underground, he s transformed his sound into something even he could not have anticipated, blending Marshall stack riff-rock with the digital wizardry of EDM and hip-hop to create the most ambitious artistic effort of his storied career. The Atlas Underground includes collaborations with Marcus Mumford, Portugal. The Man, the Wu-Tang Clan s RZA and GZA, Vic Mensa, K.Flay, Big Boi, Gary Clark Jr., Pretty Lights, Killer Mike and Whethan among others. The riffs and the beats led the way, but the extraordinary talents of the collaborators setmy creativity into uncharted territory, says Morello of the project.

The KVB announce their sixth album entitled ‘Only Now Forever’. Whilst holding evident inspiration from previous times, the sound this London-founded duo present is progressive and distinctly new in every sense. Idyllic at times; gritty in others, each bar is as enchanting as the last, leaving you in a melancholic trance. Offering poignant lyricism that explores modern anxieties that plague many, the duo manage to imbue feelings of empowerment, fighting such struggles with a deceivingly sanguine sound. This seamless juxtaposition is perhaps their best trait.
