In brief

The Guardian - G2 - - Reviews Music -

Jonas Blue Blue

★★☆☆☆ Full of big-name vo­cal­ists, in­clud­ing Liam Payne and Joe Jonas, the pop­u­lar Es­sex DJ’s de­but is an up­beat but for­get­table col­lec­tion of by-num­bers EDM and house. RA

J Mas­cis Elas­tic Days

★★★★☆ Along­side Di­nosaur Jr, J Mas­cis has been re­leas­ing solo al­bums that high­light his mel­lower side. It’s mu­sic of dis­tant hori­zons: think panoramic acous­tica. Gor­geous. MH

Liela Moss My Name Is Safe in Your Mouth

★★★★☆ The Duke Spirit front­woman swaps al­trock for lush state­li­ness, with echoes of Kate Bush and Burt Bacharach, and lyrics to adore. DS

Plan­ning­torock Pow­er­house

★★★☆☆ Blunt rep­e­ti­tion of­ten numbs the bril­liantly ex­pressed gen­der the­o­ries on PTR’s third LP, but the song Beu­lah Loves Danc­ing is an in­ti­mate rev­e­la­tion. LS
