    Weirdest but maybe my favorite album to explore this year has been the redeemer by dean blunt. Minimalist compositions but he sings alot too. Sounds like a cross between Phillip glass at points to me, but more interesting and heartbreaking. Out of this world. His gf broke up with him and he has like messages she left on his phone throughout the album. "Brutal" is great and "Papi" has a great pink Floyd sample.

    Sean McCann's new album, Music for Private Ensemble is a really excellent modern classical/ambient album because it manages to fall into those genres without following the common tropes that are, quite honestly, in pretty much every other album in them. On my first listen, I found the quick changes in dynamic range and the sudden starts and stops of the instruments kind of jarring, but the second time around it made much more sense (I think because I was ready for it) and those features became engaging and stunning instead. I haven't heard much ambient that came out this year that I thought highly of, and this one comes up way on top of all the others.

    Yes, and they both released their first material in 2010. Weekend is a shoegazer/lo-fi band.

    Haha, no I most definitely wouldn't have called The Weeknd overlooked. Weekend played the Echo a few years ago and they were fucking fantastic fantastic fantastic. Their debut was in my Top 5 of that year. I think you'd dig them, Gribbz.

    This record is definitely not lo-fi. Super post-punk, but darker and more romantic. More singing than the previous records. Less immediate than Sports but a step forward in every conceivable way. You guys have heard the Red EP, right?

    Well, what with having a new lead singer, it's not that unexpected that Yuck would sound like a whole new band.
    Upcoming Shows:
    * Dillon Francis + Anamanaguchi -- December 28th

    Going to Weekend 1 of Coachella 2014

    The '90s are alive and well. Speedy Ortiz' Major Arcana sounds like it could have been literally excavated from then. I suppose if I was in high school right now I might find an album like this fresh and exciting, what with the contrast between the calm verses and the uber-distorted choruses, but I'm not and so I don't. Just as much of the 2000s were in a way an ode to the '80s, this decade after albums of a similar cloth from Yuck, Cloud Nothings, Waxahatchee, and now this, it feels like the 2010s are destined to be the decade of the '90s throwbacks.

    Which isn't a terrible thing, but I was alive and aware when Tracy Bonham had that angsty "Mother Mother" song that was big in the summer of '97, and this doesn't feel like it adds much more to the overall pool than simply holding a mirror up to that time.

    Speaking of the 90's remaining alive, AlunaGeorge's album is definitely interesting in its faithfulness to R&B of the time. That said, it is faithful almost to a fault as far as lyrics and melodies are concerned. Nothing that Aluna herself contributes really sticks, and several of the lyrics cross the line into cringeworthy status. Hot topics include: good love, bad love, unrequited love, good relationships, bad relationships, getting dumped, dumping someone. In capable hands these topics could fuel interest over an album, but not this one.

    However, the production itself remains pretty awesome throughout. It can be a little busy at times, but when the pieces fit the results can be unique and quite stunning. That alone prevents it from becoming pure pastiche, but I haven't yet decided if it is enough to save the entire thing.

    I want to argue that Cloud Nothings isn't copping from the 90s. I can't do so, but I can argue that they are doing so in a way that makes their music more exciting than artists who replicate more-heard genres, and do so less skillfully. Because, really, Attack on Memory is a great album.

    When we saw Cloud Nothings at the Glasshouse after Coachella, they were basically a black metal band. They jammed the songs out fast and furious for 10 minutes at a time and Dylan was screaming his lungs out the whole time. it was awesome. i don't know if that is indicative of their new direction or just a process of finishing a long tour, but either way it makes me super curious about what the follow-up record is going to sound like.

    God I hope that's indicative of where they're going. I saw them not long after Attack on Memory came out and it was excellent, but very much in line with how the album sounded (almost note for note, actually.) That sounds incredible.

    I agree with all of this. I couldn't get through the whole album. It wasn't bad, it wasn't exciting either though.

    Cloud Nothings were the same way at New Parish in between Coachellas this year. They blew Japandroids away. No bullshit, no pauses, much more punk rock. I think he is only going to get less poppy, but he still writes super catchy stuff. I want to play with those guys real bad.

    I was disappointed with Japandroids' mix at Coachella.

    If the aughts was 80's revival and the '10s is 90's revival, what happens next? What kind of new culture (music or otherwise) have we created in the 21st century? I'm not really seeing any.

    In 2020, some band will write a song that sounds exactly like New Slang and a whole new generation of kids who have never heard New Slang will go crazy for it.
