The new Autolux is starting to sink into my consciousness in a rather pleasant way. I'm starting to get anxious about not having my ticket yet.
Altar Eagles' Mechanical Gardens is indeed fucking awesome.
I don't think i'll have the chance to check out Magic Kids before next weekend. I'll let their live act at FYF be my intro to them.
I wish this was slower, at least in repetition. They're tiring me out a bit.

it's also available to stream on Grooveshark. listening to it now.
this Magic Kids album is like listening to bubblegum
i'm not sure if this is what you're meaning when you say "bubblegum", but it was a pretty forgettable listen for me. i suspect they are probably pretty fun live, though.
i mean, literally if the taste of bubblegum could be listened to, that what this sounds like
I think he means he wants to smear the album all over his body and then go running down the middle of the street.
that Gayngs album has been severely underrated this year.
Tera Melos - Patagonian Rats
Weird trippy math rock. Kind of in the vein of Maps and Atlases but way more rocking. Listen to it at least for the guitar work, which is excellent even if you think most math rock is soulless guitar wankery (which, as someone who hates the Mars Volta, I agree with sometimes).
Mars Volta isn't math rock
So yeah, Screaming Females' Fall Asleep is really good.
Nothing really grabbed me on my first listen either, which happened when it leaked. Only in the last month or so it has opened up and warrented repeated listened. It won't be in my top 10 or anything, maybe not even top 20, but I definitely do enjoy it. Breezy.
I was planning on giving it another listen soon.
Listening to Andrew Graham & Swarming Branch right now. Their album is strange, off-kilter folkish rock. It rocks, in a very non-rocking way. All sorts of random, creative sounds pop up on here. It doesn't sound a whole lot like anything going on right now. A weird but intriguing listen.
I really enjoy that album.
oh man. Warp Riders is so much fun. been a while since i've enjoyed a metal album this much.
On first listen I really liked the new No Age album. It's more mature, less energetic music, and I think they pull it off pretty damn well. It reminds me of the step Husker Du took between Zen Arcade and New Day Rising: wash off some of the distortion and anger and let the songwriting stand more to the front. And, is that a Calvin Johnson duet at the end?
