This review assumes you have played the game, and as such, it contains spoilers. You’ve been warned!
Contrast is the kind of game that could have only been produced by an indie studio. It’s a brief, three-hour puzzle-platformer based around a novel mechanic, and it doesn’t overstay its welcome. It’s charming, it has a fully-realized aesthetic, and barring a few bugs and some janky controls, it’s generally well put-together. More

The Sounds have always been content to do things their own way, ignoring the temptation to follow trends in the music industry. They’ve continued to plug away at post-punk revival tunes, long after that fad has come and gone. With their fifth album, Weekend, the band continues to delve deeper into the genre, shedding their new-wave trappings for a less party-ready sound than their previous effort. This is The Sounds’ most subdued record to date, and, as it turns out, it’s also one of their strongest.
