    I used to love these guys, but their last couple albums really fell flat for me. I'm hoping this brings back some of their spark.

    I gave the new Baths a quick listen yesterday and really liked what I heard. It's definitely a darker album than Cerulean (the cover is actually a really good representation of its sound) and the songs themselves are given some extra "weight" with the live instrumentation, so he's done well to avoid the sophomore slump.

    The new Ghostface is an interesting listen as well; it's an homage to Blaxplotation soundtracks like Superfly, Shaft, and The Mack, and while the musicianship is top-notch ultimately the overt storytelling approach taken doesn't really work for me. I couldn't help but compare it to Good Kid, MAAD City in this respect, as Kendrick did phenomenally well to tell a story by using the emotional aspects of each event to direct the song while Twelve Reasons to Die focuses a bit too much on the actions/events themselves for my liking.

    bmack mentioned it a few weeks ago, but man William Tyler's album is really spectacular. Very consistent and perfect for driving, the part when the full band kicks in at the end of that last track is especially great.

    Endless Boogie's Long Island is pretty fucking awesome for the most part. It does have a few butt rock-type songs, but the lengthy hazy psych songs are really entrancing. This album is somewhat of a psychedelic stoner rock record - it's very repetitive a la Sleep or Electric Wizard but with psych guitar effects instead of sludge. Definitely worth a listen if any of that sounds interesting to you.

    I saw them open for Yo La Tengo a couple years ago. They played two songs in 35 minutes. It was kinda fun at first, but it was definitely a case of diminishing returns.

    I listened to some really fantastic albums today.



    I don't post album covers in these threads unless it's something that I'm really convinced is great, and this is one of them. MV & EE (Matt Valentine and Erika Elder)'s Fuzzweed. Easily one of the best things I've heard all year. It's hard to describe this album really. Just trust me on this one. Some really amazing sounds.

    Gnod's Chaudelande is a really wild album. Incredibly heavy at parts and spacey and distorted, it's an endurance test but it's well worth it.

    And finally, No Joy's new one Wait for Pleasure is really excellent. Aside from a few tracks, a pretty straight-forward shoegaze record. One that fits the genre nicely, and definitely doesn't do anything new or challenging but it really doesn't matter.

    I like Kurt Vile's newest. Very chill. I agree there aren't too many stand out tracks (except the first which really rocks) but yeah. I dig it.

    also, Thundercat completely left off where his last album ended. Fucking amazing as usual. Can't wait to play this out all summer. "Lotus and Jondy" is brilliant... RIP Austin Peralta

    I feel like this could be received as gauche but I thoroughly enjoy Young Galaxy's new album Ultramarine. It avoids the schmaltz death sentence that plagues so many electro pop acts (although the lyrics can be painfully ham-fisted at times) and creates a gorgeous atmosphere of it's own that the singer Catherine McCandless commands deftly. I also think the range is unique in how dynamic it can be; it goes from slow burner, to snake charmer, to funk and elsewhere. Interesting for an act in this genre.

    Haven't had the opportunity to spend a ton of time with Thundercat yet but dude is so talented, it's really awesome to enjoy. Such attention to detail and range. Looking forward to tons more spins.

    Same goes for No Joy. It gets bogged down slightly by the debt all shoegazers owe to the obvious forebears, and actually brought me back to spending more time with mbv, but is still very good on it's own merits.

    Saw this and wanted to comment on the lyrics real quick. Gotta love a line like "nurse this erection back to health" haha, made me double back real quick. It's pretty sick though on a cursory listen at work, I'll hold off on any formative thoughts on the album as a whole for now though until I get to pay proper attention.

    I haven't heard much new music this year but this is at or near the top of my list. Wondrous, beautiful, simultaneoul calm yet urgent. Seriously, take a listen.

    I thought you guys were being hyperbolic about the new-ish Omar-S, but it's pretty nice. Not my favorite electronic release of the year by far but there are a few tracks that will probably end up being among my favorites of the year.

    Yea. There are some electronic tracks from this year that I like better, but they're not dance floor appropriate ones. I really want to hear this played out somewhere.

    Also, for all my whining a couple of months ago that there hadn't been a lot of good releases this year... holy crap. There are already ~20 electronic releases I really love (as well as some good indie albums). This hasn't been good for my record buying habit. I actually ran out of record shelf space this week. :/

    Please list these ~20 releases for my benefit.

    Omar-S has got to be one of the most reliable producers working today. His stuff is always, at minimum, very good.

    Been doing a ton of catch up over the last week or so. The Knife album is still settling in, but I'm glad they didn't try to just do Silent Shout v2.0. Still kind of adjusting the more tribal rhythm stuff, but it works surprisingly well. That drone track is really boring and unnecessary and the album flows much better if you just delete it from the playlist. The Timberlake is definitely way too long and ambitious, but there's some really good pop gems buried up in there. I never really got into Iron & Wine, but on first listen the new album hooked me pretty immediately. Atom TM is some wonderfully off kilter techno pop (although I could do without the "My Generation" cover), really addictive fluff that's produced like it isn't fluff at all. Thee Oh Sees is more of the same goodness, but still doesn't beat Carrion Crawler. James Blake was more enjoyable than what I read in hear led me to believe it would be. I haven't paid attention too much to Clinic since their early stuff, but the new one seems a lot more in line with the first two albums than the last few that I've heard, which is a good thing in my book. DJ Koze has some pretty goofy moments but it's nice and it's cool to see some collabs with some other techno luminaries. Waxahatchee isn't really my thing, but I'll give it a few more listens and see if it clicks. The Asphodells is another Andrew Weatherall project and while the album is perhaps a bit too long and unfocused, there's some reliably strong grooves that his name would imply.

    Steve Manson's new album is pretty nice. His voice is soothing but I have yet to listen to the album all the way through without feeling like I need to take a nap.

    A Quiet Darkness by Houses is a really interesting concept album recorded in a series of different abandoned houses. The album is really a blend of a lot of genres, dark and moody, and extremely lush. Beautiful haunting vocal melodies are backed by shoegazy, swirling guitars and dense soundscapes. it's honestly a lot to take to take, but upon only one listen, I loved the entire thing from start to finish.

    If you'd like to listen to the whole album, as well as check out more details on the concept and how it was made, there is a great feature on Huffington Post (as well as a streaming player)

    Portugal. The Man has a presale on their new album "Evil Friends" going on right now

    http://store.portugaltheman.com/

    They killed the sunset time slot on the outdoor stage this year at Coachella. They rocked three new songs during the set (Sea of Voices, Purple Yellow Red and Blue, and Evil Friend) which are all going to be on this new album.
