    Matthew Dear's Black City is starting to become a daily listen. The first two songs are still my favorites, but it's growing on me.

    The new !!! is spotty, but there are some great tracks in there. "Jump Back" is especially badass.

    And how did I wait so long to listen to this new Four Tet? Some of the best IDM-ish stuff I've heard this year. Way more interesting than Black Noise.

    Cannot agree more.

    Pitchfork did an article about that witch house stuff that I've been meaning to read for awhile. Listening to the sample tracks right now. Pretty neat stuff.

    Agreed. I was skeptical when I read the article but there is some cool stuff going on musically.

    Change of subject:

    Fans of power-pop and awesome 70s rock will love Free Energy. Their album is fucking great. I think James Murphy produced the single, not sure about the whole album. Both are out through the DFA though. Really good stuff.

    So Tyondai has left Battles... but Battles plan on contiunuing without him. I wonder how this will affect the release of their second album.

    Sleepy Sun - Fever might just end up on my top 10 list. I don't really make top 10 lists, but....it's one of my growing favorites. I can't classify what sub-genre it is, though. Witchytwangrock.

    Serious bummer. He seemed pretty important to the band.... Can't imagine they'll be able to continue at the same caliber.

    I wonder what that means for the album and whatever work they'd already done on it.

    I'm glad I got to see them a few times when he was a part of the mayhem.

    There is no way for Battles to continue as a 3 piece. It just couldn't be done. How they made their music work live as a 4 piece was incredible on its own. They will have to get someone to replace him.

    And Bryan, I was thinking the exact same thing about the new album. Are they going to start from scratch with a newly recruited guy? Or keep all of Tyondai's work on the album and just finish without him?

    Braxton was a huge draw for Battles. This is going to hurt.

    Well I'm listening to Black to Comm-Alphabet 1968, and it's a really cool and cinematic sounding synthscape record. It's very enjoyable.

    That album is fantastic. Fairly certain it was from last year, but still deserving of love.

    "dirty cartoons" to "tithe" is just such a great 1-2 punch of bliss.

    I have given a couple listens to The Way Out by the Books and I am enjoying it. They are/haven't been quite a band I love but we may find our way there.

    Also I like the vocals from Carla Bozulich. Though I am always in that boat.

    The new Crocodiles record absolutely destroys their first one. If you liked the first, you'll definitely be into this, but it is so much better. Big step forward for them, and one of my favorites of the year on first listen. Only album that kicked my ass more first time through is The Monitor. Can't wait to buy this.

    Hey assheads, guess what? The new Cut Copy song is fantastic. The Zombies haven't done anything that good in nigh on 50 years, so it's great to hear something in that vein, and done with skill and grace.

    And I'm listening to Sex With an X and I'm ecstatic.

    I have a feeling if someone didn't commit the original sin of calling a subgenre glitch house, then we would have no witch house.

    I listened to a bunch of harsher/noisier albums yesterday. The Harvey Milk album is pretty bleak, some times a little too monochromatic, but overall an enjoyable slice of self-loathing. Zs' New Slaves is absolutely fucking insane and kind of amazing. It really is pretty varied and there's a lot of layers going on at any given time. There's a lot of sections that would probably be pretty tedious if they were allowed to go on much longer than they do, but thankfully they switch things up enough, even on the long songs. Miles above Arms, the only other thing I've heard by them. The Sightings album is alright, although I don't know that it's something I'm going to want to throw on very often these days. Parts remind me of when Wolf Eyes are in full attack mode, but a lot more raw and shambling and unfocused. Good if you just want to be assaulted for 40 minutes.

    Right now I'm listening to Zola Jesus' Stridulum EP and the singer is a dead ringer for young Siouxsie. I love Siouxsie, so I don't mind. The music's actually a bit gloomier than most of what the Banshees did though.

    Bryan and Andrew, you really should check out Big Troubles if you haven't already. They have a single out on OESB and a full length coming soon. The single screams.

    I really didn't think anything of The Radio Dept's Clinging To a Scheme on the first two listens I gave it, but after my third listen today (months later), I'm starting to get why a few of you have it on your top 10's. Pretty dreamy and understated stuff.

    Fuck, it's not out on vinyl over here. I almost bought in Copenhagen but thought it would be available for sure out this way. Fuck that.
