Twenty One Pilots take their catchy songwriting, genre blending, and emotional lyricism up a few notches on Trench.
Colombian supergroup Ondatrópica continues to fuse genres from across South America on their sophomore album.
If there's a way to hold attention, it's to hint at a payoff that never arrives. The Bug's trap-dub influenced beat swells quite a few times throughout the, but the song dissolves into a formless chorus before any kind of release is ever achieved. Miss Red's vocals are a prime example of the childish delivery that has become omnipresent in British electronic music. They are passable at best and verge on grating at points. Nevertheless, The Bug's masterful manipulation of tension alone makes the song worth a listen.

After two electrifying tapes, Scotland's Young Fathers come through with a huge sound on this latest album of theirs, Dead. I'm not as crazy about the songs, though.
