    Never been big on Simian Mobile Disco, but I'm enjoying the hell out of their newest release. Seems a lot more refined than their previous efforts.

    I expect these guys will blow up within the next year with their debut LP (Wildlife Pop) that just came out. Nothing groundbreaking, but catchy as fuck and super fun to listen to.

    Taragana Pyjamara - Tipped Bowls is really fucking good. Ethereal and huge... continuing the sound from the EP last year. Really love it on first listen.

    Been playing out the Evy Jane EP the last few days. Trippy/repetitive r&b female vocals... super dark. Seriously recommend. I want more, nothing else on what, but I haven't really searched elsewhere.

    I'm not going to say anything about the Fiona Apple album yet. I need to hear it one more time, but on first listen it seems like a fucking powerhouse. Can't wait to unpack it.

    Keith Fullerton Whitman's Occlusions is pretty extraordinary. My favorite since Disingenuousness. Definitely much more chaotic and difficult that his recent stuff, but the two sides definitely give plenty of insight into his process. The fact that each side captures a different execution of the same set of self-generative compositions provides some immediate entry points into what might otherwise be damn near impenetrable music.

    In a similar vein, Eric Lanham's The Sincere Interruption is probably my favorite album thus far this year. More abstract electronic work, but with this one embracing digital synthesis in an incredibly direct and agressive manner. A completely psychotic record.

    I just did something I haven't done in a long, long time (in fact, I can't even remember the last time): I listened to an album for the first time in physical form, rather than via a leak.

    The album of choice was the new Tallest Man on Earth record; I searched for a leak but was finding it too time-consuming (e.g., longer than 10 minutes) to find a working link. I was going to buy it anyway, so I waited. Like people used to do. Honestly, I'm kind of surprised by how excited I was to listen. And it was strange consuming a record this way. I've been so dependent on leaks for so long that I hardly remember this feeling.

    Anyway, what I really wanted to say was this album is, unsurprisingly, totally gorgeous. I like the new textures and new instruments. There's No Leaving Now is less immediate than The Wild Hunt and Sometimes the Blues... but will be equally rewarding with time. I'm a big fan on first listen.

    I haven't listened to this whole album yet, but it's interesting enough to talk about here.

    Does everybody remember Neneh Cherry? She's making a comeback with a jazz group called the Thing, and they've just released an album called The Cherry Dream in which they cover all manner of songs, including "Dream Baby Dream" by SUICIDE, which is actually a pretty awesome cover.


    Here's the whole tracklistng:

    1. Cashback (Neneh Cherry)
    2. Dream Baby Dream (Suicide)
    3. Too Tough to Die (Martina Topley-Bird)
    4. Sudden Movement (Mats Gustafsson)
    5. Accordion (MF Doom)
    6. Golden Heart (Don Cherry)
    7. Dirt (The Stooges)
    8. What Reason (Ornette Coleman)

    I gotta check out the whole record still

    Beat Connection, who put out what was probably my favorite ep last year, Surf Noir, have a full length out now! It's called The Palace Garden, and while it does have a similar beachy, summery feel that their decidedly chillwave previous efforts have had, I think they've really stepped up their game and now have a fully developed, rich sound. There are much bigger beat-driven, dancey songs on this one, but there's a big Calypso influence as well, that really adds to the summery vibe. This is a collection of songs meant for driving down a beach road on a warm summer night.

    I'm just finishing it now and it seriously gets better and better with each song. Really fucking good from start to finish.

    EDIT: and it's REALLY refreshing o have a follow-up full-length from a little electronic act like this that is not disappointing after a grand slam ep.

    1970s/80s synthpop group Ultravox have reunited and released Brilliant their first studio record since 1994. It's epic, melodramatic and huge-sounding. For people that aren't particularly fond of the genre, I could see it sounding a little goofy, but for those of us that love The Pet Shop Boys, Erasure, Human League, et al, it's pretty stupendous. The production is wonderful, and sounds surprisingly contemporary, but without attempting to emulate current pop trends. The choruses are huge and the mixes are dynamic. Really good album!

    They were painfully average at Sasquatch, but I'll give this album a chance. They're playing the Capitol Hill Block Party next month in Seattle so I'll have to give them another shot if their recorded stuff is good.

    I've never seen them live, but they're a young band whose recoded stuff is very synthesizer/sample based, so it could take them a while to work out the kinks in a live setting. I actually thought it was just one guy until i was reading about the full length the other day. You should definitely check out the records though!

    I'd love to see Ultravox at Chella. Think I was hoping for it a couple years ago when they first announced their reunion.

    The new Twin Shadow is fucking extraordinary. Huge tunes, front-to-back. Auto-induction into The Summer Albums Hall of Fame. It will be on numerous Year-End Lists, without a doubt.

    Also: White Arrows' debut "Dry Land is not a Myth" is doing me completely right currently. Such killer, psychedelic grooves.
    I cannot wait to see either of them at FYF Fest. Bring on the summer.

    PM for copies of either or both!

    After a couple listens, I'd like to mention that I think the new Crocodiles album is fantastic! Haven't listened to them a whole lot in the past but there's so many catchy tunes on this one. "Bubblegum Trash" has instantly become my summer anthem. If you're in search of some warm and fuzzy rock (and need a temporary break from Slaughterhouse) I highly recommend it.

    I've got to check it out again, but based on the first listen i gave it yesterday, i think the new Hot Chip might be my favorite of theirs! I was pretty surprised.

    I had never heard Hot Chip until Monday morning tuning into KCRW for the FYF Fest announcement and they played "Ends of the Earth". Hooked.
