New Broken Social Scene!!!
Don't quite know how Dean Blunt's new release got panned by Pitchfork (not that it matters), but it is shaping up to be one of my favorites of the year so far. Absolutely beautiful and haunting stuff.
So the new Trentemoller single is weird and kinda good. Gonna have to listen to it a few more times. Definitely leans more towards Into the Great Wide Yonder instead of The Last Resort (i.e. really vocal-heavy)... but I'm digging it.
The National's run of albums since Alligator is probably the most impressive to me since R.E.M. Each one still stands on its own, yet you can also see the maturity and complexity progress with each album.
I was randomly listing to some tracks off of The Body ep. I'm no metal guy at any means but that shit is super intense and creepy with great builds. One of the more interesting pieces of music I've heard this year.
The Fall's new record is fucking awesome. I mean, I'd pay good money just to hear Mark E. Smith read the phone book, but it's really musically impressive for something this late in a band's career (rotating lineup or not).
Quite possibly. This is also the first latter-day Fall album I've listened to, for better or worse.
I really need to see them live.
You and me both. I had a ticket to see them at the last LA show, and then the band fell apart the day prior, so I assumed the show was cancelled. Turns out the next night was his first night with the band that took their place, and that wrote some of the better latter-day Fall songs. Wish I would have gone.
if you like analog/acid/EDM check out The Dwell from SFV Acid. I went to high school with him, and his album is really excellent. You can stream it here: http://www.thefader.com/2013/05/29/s...-lp-the-dwell/
I've really enjoyed the couple listens of the stream of the new Thundercat record. It's definitely a bit poppier, I guess. But to me it just sounds like his songwriting has gotten sharper and more straightforward. Not at all in a bad way, though. I definitely prefer it to Golden Age.
I also have been listening almost non-stop to The Jellyfish Mentality by The Jet Age Of Tomorrow. It has a lot of different sounds and styles that all sort of meld into their signature sound: neo-soul, jazz, funk, experimental, spacey electronic, hip-hop, rock. I don't know. You can hear a lot of Neptunes and Jamiroquai influence. Here's my favorite song on the album, not all of it sounds like this though:
"Desert N' The Dark" ft. The Stepkids
I'm digging on two very different EPs right now.
Obliterations - Obliterations is the first release from this group made up of a bunch of dudes from Black Mountain, Saviours, Bluebird, Night Horse and Pink Mountaintops. The ep was recorded by Joe Cardamone, frontman for The Icarus line. It is 8.5 minutes of balls to the wall, grungy, fuzzed out punk rock. It reminds me a lot of Zeke and early Mondo Generator, which is awesome. You can listen to/buy it here: http://obliterations.bandcamp.com/
I am also really digging on Ob Boy Les Mecs - Nurture Nature. She's an L.A. local, and it would be very hard not to compare her music to Bjork, but it's certainly appealing in the very much the same way. There is a tinge of 80s retro synthesizer on this 5 track ep, but her great voice, lush layering and programming, and great sense for drama sets it apart from other retro synth pop acts. "Unrest" and the title track "Nurture Nature" are particularly really, really good.
I am not digging Vampire Weekend and indifferent to The National, both of which are on Spotify now. The National is easy to listen to and will be fine live, maybe even great, but just isn't very interesting to me on headphones nor inspires me to look back and compare it to their prior releases.
City Society's S/T full length is super chilled out, dreamy synth pop. Great rolling synth lines, relaxed beats, and breezy dreampop-ish vocals. Will be a great relaxing summer album.
New Robyn track via The Lonely Island
Didn't like Tijuana Panther's new one Semi-Sweet nearly as much as their first record. Nothing as fun as Creature or Redheaded Girl on there. Another couple listens though, the new stuff blended in and filled out their live set to be sure. Love those guys.
Finally listened to the new National album. It's more immediate than High Violet, and is also really great. I also finally bought/listened to the new Men record, which is great in a lazy way. I wish it rocked more overall, but this direction suits them too.
