Every Friday, John Meagher reviews a selection of new release albums in Day And Night and we’ll publish a Spotify playlist of the albums (where available) so you can listen and judge for yourself.

Today’s albums available to stream from the ones reviewed include Kanye West’s Yeezus (“one of the few A-list figures today who rips up the rulebook and delivers thrilling music that is both avant-garde and commercial”), Empire Of The Sun’s Ice On The Dune (“their lavish brand of electro-pop doesn’t sparkle nearly as much as they managed on Walking on A Dream”) and Sydney-born, London-based newcomer Joel Sarakula’s The Golden Age (“One senses that there are greater things to come from this displaced Aussie, but for now, these astute pop songs will do just fine.”)
