    Yeah, I wasn't feeling the new No Age at all. I've only listened to it once, though.

    Yes yes yes; they just did an RA podcast which was pretty good too.

    Is new Goldfrapp another sleeper or more uptempo stuff like their older material?

    I haven't listened to it yet, but it's on my list since their other releases were great. Glad to get a chance to see them this fall

    Nearly every song on the new album has orchestral backing, so yes.

    anybody else enjoying this release from Salvia Plath? Trippy 60s psychedelic bubblegum goodness. I guess he is the artist formerly known as RUN DMT - and yes they're both silly monikers, I know, but I'll have to look into RUN DMT more because I am digging this very much!

    I just finished listening to the new Moderat, and I really dig it. I don't think it's as good as their self-titled album, but that doesn't matter much to me. This one is good in its own right. It had what I was looking for, some nice smooth beats that kept me interested the entire time.

    The new Polyphonic Spree is great. it's not exactly breaking new ground beyond a few songs that take a stylistic detour, so if you're already a fan, especially of The Fragile Army, you should also really like Yes, It's True.

    I'm rather late to the How to Destroy Angels party... but I absolutely loved Welcome Oblivion.

    Yeah, I feel the same way. Bad Kingdom is my favorite I think.

    "Bad Kingdom" was one of my favorites. I also like "Therapy" and "Last Time." They were all rather solid, though.

    As I said before I hate doing album reviews but here's another poor attempt at one:


    Za! - Wanananai
    Stream this album here : http://discorporate.bandcamp.com/album/wanananai
    Here is a live studio video of "Subeme el Monitor" http://vimeo.com/64101462

    Ever wonder what would happen when you got to [Gorillaz] Plastic Beach and it turned out everyone had been eaten by robotic mutant tribesmen who love Lighting Bolt instead of Snoop Dog .Well with this album you do get that opportunity to have that experience. Za! is on my list of bands to see who are from Spain.I was introduce to this band by SonofHal when Megaflow came out.Which by the way that 2010 release has one of my favorite Mojave desert sunset driving songs, "Calonge Terrassa, Kalon-Jah! Tewra-ssah! ". I was actually VERY disappointed when I found out these guys are a duo instead as I imagined a new type of gamelan influence by the Boredoms.

    Chris Thile is a genius and his mandolin playing on his album of Bach Sonatas and Partitas is ludicrously good. Highly recommended!

    I mean, it's short, but it's not like they have ever been known for making super long records
    True. I guess it's 'cause it's been 3 years since their last record so I was expecting something epic/lengthy.

    So Pond features a few of the guys from Tame Impala. Their last record was good, but this song is fantastic. If TI had gone the direction of Led Zeppelin instead of Todd Rundgren with their second album, I imagine this is how it might have sounded:

    12/22 - Beachwood Sparks, et al - Echoplex
    12/30 - Together Pangea - Echo
    1/10 - Flesh Eaters - Echoplex (?)
    1/20 - Guster - HOB Anaheim (?)
    1/29 - Patti Smith - Ace (?)

    The second track on their new album is titled "Xanman." I haven't listened to it yet, but I seriously hope it's about a creepy guy who posts lots of awkward photos with celebrities despite desperate entreaties to knock it off already.

    So there's this woman named Chelsea Wolfe and she has a new album out called Pain Is Beauty. I enjoyed it a whole lot. It's dark and drony, but also has some nice electronic and folk-ish elements to it. I'm not the best with comparisons, I leave that to the esteemed TallGuy, but if you like EMA even a little I think you should check out this new Chelsea Wolfe album.

    Ha. Chelsea Wolfe's hard to properly sum up with comparisons. I do know, however, that her show at the First Unitarian Church earlier this year was haunting and fantastic.

    True Widow is touring with her, and their album, Cicumambulation is very spooky shoegaze stuff. Should be a nice double bill.

    I've seen Chelsea Wolfe twice opening for black metal bands. She is an insanely intense performer that works really well with metal acts.

    Thanks for that feedback. I'm acquiring it now. After I listened to Chelsea Wolfe, I was very pleased to see that she's playing in Albuquerque on September 4th.

    I'm really loving Versions by Zola Jesus. The album consists of old tracks that have been rearranged with a string quartet. I can't wait to hear them perform together. Hopefully her new LP is similarly arranged.

    I listened to a couple interesting 2013 metal albums in the past two days:

    Gevurah's EP, Necheshirion, recently released on Profound Lore is a strong, hard take on USBM. They take some strong riff action from the best of death metal and implant it in the longer, more esoteric USBM sounds to create a pretty cool and very heavy few tracks. I'm definitely intrigued to see what they can do with a full-length and they sound like they have a ton of promise.

    The new Botanist LP, Mandragora, builds on the stellar developments he made on Doom in Bloom and succeeds greatly by shortening the song length and increasing the catchiness of the riffs. For those not in the know, Botanist plays heavy music that is based on a distorted hammer dulcimer, that revered medieval instrument, and writes music almost exclusively focused on plant life. None of that matters, because the songs on this one are the best he's written by a long shot and really drive home how this guy is one of the best metal acts working today. I can't recommend it highly enough.

    Finally, the Raspberry Bulbs album that recently got reviewed favorably on Pitchfork, Deformed Humanity, is a total beast. The prior Raspberry Bulbs album sounded like old-school black metal played by punk musicians, short blasts of decayed and lo-fi riffage with evil howls. This album features a full band and higher sound quality. The songs retain the evil and hatred of the prior releases but with much more developed ideas and music. It reminds me most of the METZ album from last year with more vicious violence. I kind of love it.

    The albums I'm most looking forward to for the rest of the year are Vasaeleth - All Uproarious Darkness, A.M.S.G. - Anti-Cosmic Tyranny, Grave Miasma - Odori Sepulcrorum and SubRosa - More Constant Than the Gods​.

    I really didn't like the Raspberry Bulbs stuff I heard. Maybe the songs work better in context, though?

    I also wasn't really feeling the new No Age when I listened today. Might be a grower, I don't know.

    That said, the album from His Electro Blue Voice, Ruthless Sperm, is heavy as fuck. I heard one of their jams on Sub Pop 1000 and was impressed, and the album is really good. That record kind of scratches the METZ itch for me.
