New Sleigh Bells is an interesting, very warped take on 80's hair metal it seems. Not exactly consistently great throughout the record (neither was their first), but "Comeback Kid" will easily be one of my favorite songs of the year.


Stuff I really have dug so far....


School of Seven Bells - Ghostory: Pop oriented, semi-electronic music with ethereal vocals. Their past work was great, but this new album blows that out of the water. Already a front-runner for my Album of the Year.


Frankie Rose - Interstellar: Phenomenal songwriting with a sense of ambiance like no other. Feels like you're confined while able to see for miles out in front of you. A rather fitting album title. Some of the absolute best tracks from the year are on this record and it's so unique that I know people will still get a kick out of this twenty years from now.


John Talabot - fin: An electronic album that is so damn layered that I'll be picking out new things from it for months.


Cloud Nothings - Attack on Memory: Really seems like a spiritual successor to Nirvana's Nevermind. Songs that will pummel you right in the gut with their lyrical depth (or at least meaningfulness) but go down easy thanks to just enough hooks.


Sharon Van Etten - Tramp: A lot going on here. A notable talent finally coming into her own. It's so damn bold all the way through, sounding like somebody who is completely confident in their songwriting abilities.


Lambchop - Mr. M: Warped, lengthy folk. Kind of reminds me of Bill Callahan but with a little more warmth despite being weirder.


Porcelain Raft - Strange Weekend: A very catchy record that's as much about lush, aural soundscapes as it is a lesson in pop song structure.


Lilacs & Champagne: Very similar to Quiet Village (as if anybody knows who that is or even should. Great band though.) Just a lot of sh*t happening and very fun to try and figure out what each song is all about. Literally a different genre at every track and one of the trippiest albums I've heard in awhile.


Lana Del Rey - Born To Die: It's rare that pop music manages to put together some breathtaking hooks like those on some of the songs on this record.

I am going to check out that Lambchop album later, they're one band that I always get reminded of, and then suddenly I love them, until I forget about them again. Damaged is my favourite.

Kokono, you seriously like that Lana Del Rey album? I thought it was junk. And I wasn't a hater until I heard the record, I loved Video Games.

New Spiritualized song dropped yesterday. Very weird juxtaposition between a massive sound but recorded at home and intimate vocals. Also sounds better played as loud as humanely possible. So my flatmates love it  LOL http://soundcloud.com/spiritualized/hey-jane-eq-15feb-1

Also, this Suckers song is very cool and I think a bunch of us would like it

Three posts in a row, but the new Lil B mixtape God's Father a) has the most fucking ridiculous cover I've seen this year (he quotes himself!) b) is a smidge under two hours long and c) is pretty good so far! I didn't like his last one White Flame (a bit too aggressive so it got weary) but this strikes a better vibe. That said, dude appears to be so prolific that actually talking about his mixtapes seems a waste of time  LOL


I don't know enough about modern rap besides Lil B, but I guess here is the last place to start a thread about it - I mean, no-one posted in my Gil Scott Heron RIP thread, yet we're arguing about The Monkees all over the forum because Davy Jones died. Sigh.

Bought and listening to new Magnetic Fields album, Love at the Bottom of the Sea. S. Merritt is a guy who I think has really had some high, high peaks, but the bulk of the past few albums have had more "more of the same" than interesting stuff for me. I'm liking this upon first listen.

Kishi Bashi. Actually a 2011 EP, but pretty darn new (and two of the songs are on the next-month LP release). he has played as a violinist/singer with Regina Spektor, Of Montreal, and Sondre Leche. As that might hint, there are diverse elements to this very-much-pop music. Check it out.

I've seen decidedly average reviews for it. I wonder about Stephin Merrit. Maybe his aspirations as a craftsman leave people cold, but I respect that.

That said, Andrew In Drag didn't drive me wild - but I'll give the album a shot, thanks for reminding me.

The new Shins album, Port of Morrow. I've got a love/hate relationship with the Shins. I think J. Mercer is a very talented songwriter and I like his voice, but I also think he has been increasingly a twiddler and fiddler, draining life from his recordings. I do prefer this album to the previous Shins album, though.

Mercer is a damn fine musician (and Beach Boys fan!), but I've had the impression that he's kind of a douchebag for a while now.. don't know, maybe I'm wrong. And of course I don't have to like musicians in order to enjoy their work. Regarding the Shins: new album is largely lifeless straightforward poppy stuff for a broader audience (a trend he began with the Broken Bells side project) whereas the old Shins albums were quirky, well produced, had a cool 60s vibe and were plain exciting. I will forever treasure those first three LPs - the new one though, after three spins now, doesn't do that much for me. It's not the same Shins, anyway (regarding personnel).

Yeah, I'm not too concerned about whether he's a dick. And frankly I don't miss his former bandmates much, either: the songs were always all his, and when I saw them live on the Chutes tour, I recall thinking they weren't actually all that good a band. I think his approach of going with hired hands (and making no bones about it) is probably the right one for him. That said, I think the word lifeless is the right one. (Not that I think going for a 60s vibe is the answer either. The last thing this world needs is more people trying to achieve something that's already decades-since been done.)

Got the new Jack White album. Never actually was a White Stripes fan, but have come to like and respect him slowly over the years, enough that I thought this was worth the purchase. And after listening, it is.

Picked up the new Rufus Wainwright. Much like my previous post with Jack White, I haven't been much of a fan of Wainwright's up to now. But I heard the single on the radio (and loved it) and after previewing the tracks, figured a guy could spend $12 worse. I am liking a lot of it, though sometimes I still find his voice a little much to take.

I have fallen somewhat behind with all this, although did spin the Willis Earl Beal album a few times (it has a stupid name I can't remember), and some album made of country samples by a dude called Daugh Gibson which really intrigued me. I need to find  some time in the next few weeks to listen to them properly.

My favorite album of the summer is easily Father John Misty's 'Fear Fun'. He's the ex drummer of Fleet Foxes/has released several albums under the name J. Tillman, but I think this album is better than their last and much more adventurous.

If you haven't heard any of his stuff, I suggest listening to the first four tracks off of the album and what I feel like should've been a single "Well, You Can Do It Without Me".

I subscribe to NoiseTrade, imo the best source to find new music AND have a chance to download it for free. Which I did, here 'n' there. One of the songs I liked was featured in Will Hodge's (NT music editor/community manager) Thanksgiving wrap-up. It is "Pumpkin Pie" by The Castros. There is live performance of it on Youtube. In addition, my favorites are Rick Gallagher's jazz instras - "Sweet Potato Eyebrows" & mash-up of re-arranged Christmas staples "A Sleigh, A Song and A Baby Boy" (Sleigh Ride, Sing We Now of Christmas, O Holy Night, Hark the Herald Angels Sing, The Holly & the Ivy, Little Drummer Boy, Let It Snow, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas).

Tyson Motsenbocker, "Rivers & Roads" EP. Nice but not good. I don't much care for "indie" sound/style.
