    I probably would have loved the new Wavves album when I was in 5th grade.

    I just got around to listening to the new Foals album, Total Life Forever, over the weekend. It has a lot of very catchy grooves and a good amount of musicianship was put into making it. The bass especially sticks out. The song "Miami" has been stuck in my head for a few days. I like this album better than their first one and I wish they were playing in Albuquerque.

    Other Recent Listens

    How I Got Over by The Roots: Best output I've heard from them in nearly a decade. I really loved "Dear God 2.0" with Jim James.

    The Suburbs by Arcade Fire: It's been stated a lot, but this thing is too long. There were 2 or 3 really good songs, but it was just all very average to me. I'll still listen to the high quality vinyl rip, though, to see about these hidden strings I've been reading about.

    The Way Out by The Books: It would only be fair to give this an incomplete since I only listened to half of the album. It was just very fragmented and didn't hit me the right away. I'm still debating about whether or not I should try again.


    As it stands, High Violet by The National is my album of the year and it looks like it will probably stay that way. The Besnard Lakes, Jonsi, Menomena, Susanne Sundfшr, and Take have also put out my favorites of the year.

    It really does make a huge difference, and I have idiot caveman ears that normally don't pick up on that stuff at all. It definitely brings out background vocals and strings, but even the guitar on stuff like Modern Man sounds different, and Month of May has some of it's crazy surf rock thing back, which was notably absent after hearing it live. Audio quality isn't something that ever registers with me, but it definitely brings it to life in a big way in this case.

    it's definitely an improvement but it still sounds pretty cruddy.

    having said that, i'm not sure a perfect rip is gonna save this one (for me). there are a few good jams on it, but it's just not doing it for me, sadly. maybe once i hear them live next week, it will gel.

    Get Well Soon - Vexations.

    The second release from the German genius that is Konstantin Gropper didn't really grip me on first listen, but after witnessing a stunning live show it really clicked. I seem to get something new from it with every listen. It has all the epicness and beauty of Radiohead or Arcade Fire at their best. I've actually been listening to it a lot again recently to get over the long winded bloatfest that is The Suburbs.

    Today I listened to a lot of what Tommy's been listening to, apparently.

    Arcade Fire, The Suburbs. I liked it on first listen. The first three songs come firing right out of the gate, and are woven together very nicely. My mind kind of wandered off toward the middle. It's a lot to absorb, though, and very hard to gauge just on one listen. And I love how they didn't call the last track a "reprise" (which it is).

    Autolux, Transit Transit. Nothing really memorable on first listen, it just kind of putts along. I didn't dislike it, though, so we'll see.

    The Books, No Way Out. Eclectic, solid. Really looking forward to seeing them at ATP in a few weeks.

    Sleigh Bells, Treats. Even more dreadful than I had anticipated. One of the weakest releases of '10 thus far.
    4/17 - Mogwai - El Rey (?)
    4/27 - Ghost BC - Fonda (?)
    4/29 - Franz Ferdinand - Wiltern (?)
    4/30 - Mono - Troubadour (?)
    5/03 - Philip Glass - Royce Hall

    Goddamn "Hallelujah" at Coachella was something special. And I'm not even a huge fan of that song.

    Bad sound or no bad sound, Interpol's new one is very meh. In the Interpol thread NMH called the song Barricade "tuneless," which little did he know was a good word to describe the entire album.

    "Tuneless" is really an understatement.

    yes, this is very good. i don't like it quite as much as it appears you do, but am looking forward to giving it a few more spins. there's a lot going on here...flavors of folk, indie rock and even some electronica. the instrumentation (esp the bass) is very good and the production is excellent. good suggestion, Drew....thx.

    and, i agree with Pot on the new Devo. it surprised me right off and continues to please. did anyone hear these new jams live? if so, how were they?

    The new Devo songs rock live.

    "What We Do" is definiately one of the best songs released this year.

    I like how we are getting to a nice point in the year where there is enough 2010 releases to keep us from all listening to the same stuff.

    I still wish someone else would give the new Kyle Sowashes record a listen.

    I feel so lonely listening to such triumphant music alone.

    Listened to Zs' New Slaves tonight, and at first was worried that it was all going to sound the same. But it turns out the record includes quite an eclectic mix of sounds, and is quite good. Highly recommended.
