Matt & Kim – New Glow Album Review

In their fifth album, Matt and Kim provide us with more upbeat anthems, fusing together different genres (with especially prominent hip hop and EDM influences) and topping it all off with optimistic lyrics. New Glow is the first record from the Brooklyn-based duo, consisting of vocalist and keyboardist Matt Johnson and drummer Kim Schifino, since 2012's Lightning and its 10 tracks, which clock in at less than half an hour altogether, pack an exultant and powerful punch perfectly suited for sunny days.

Smallpools – LOVETAP! Album Review

Following the major success of their debut single "Dreaming" from their self-titled EP in 2013, Exposure artist Smallpools released their first full-length album. They've toured with WBRU staples Walk the Moon and Neon Trees and even co-headlined a tour with Magic Man this past fall. After I saw Smallpools at the Boston stop of their fall tour (and unexpectedly met their drummer, Beau), I was left wondering how their on-stage exuberance would map onto a full-length album. Luckily, LOVETAP! captures that live energy and proves that their debut album was well worth the wait.
