    Only 7 tracks in, but goddamn if the new Janelle Monae isn't hitting the spot! I'm hoping the rest of the album is as good.

    Janelle MonŠe's The Electric Lady is really something. Like her debut, it does suffer from being way too long, but there are so many different styles represented, and such lush soundscapes and and really thoughtful compositions that it's easy to forgive. I think this is actually even a better record than the first one too. it really covers a lot of ground stylistically and has some incredible instrumentation. it reminds me a lot of what a modern version of something like Stevie Wonder's Songs In The Key Of Life might sound like. One thing though, and this applies to really all hip hop and r&B records - the fucking skits need to stop! They drag the album down to a complete halt and they're not funny nor entertaining.

    On a totally different note, I also really liked Balance and Composure's The Things We Think We're Missing. it's a great throwback record to mid-90s era post hardcore, with semi throaty vocals and jangly guitars. Very reminiscent of things like Hot Water Music and Jawbox. Good stuff.

    Agreed with most points on the Monae album. It dips into cheese some times, but in a way I actually enjoy, which is a nice change of pace for this year.

    Also, can someone explain where the whole "people on the message board only like R&B ironically" thing came from? I argued about it on fb a while back after D'Angelo dropped out of OSL, but I've heard similar comments on the message board prior to that.


    EDIT* Is is because R Kelly peed on someone?

    Because certain people find it baffling that some of us actually are capable of fully enjoying as many vastly different types of music as we do.

    Yeah, the people who have made these comments are longtime board members, though. Seems like they would know that. Oh well, it doesn't matter.

    It's pretty easy not to take R&B seriously if you only hear certain stuff. And I know a lot of people really like R. Kelly sincerely, but come the fuck on, even R. Kelly doesn't like himself sincerely. I pretty sure the vast majority of serious contributors here actually enjoy the stuff they listen to for no other reason than they actually enjoy it, for the most part, and not because they're pretentious, ironic, a hipster, trying to impress someone, don't know better, or whatever other bullshit.

    There is only one hip-hop album ever made where I'd say the skits don't need to be excised like a tumor.

    Deltron 3030 is what I was thinking of when I was making the comment myself. They're actually some of the best of that album.

    3 Feet High and Rising has some decent skits. I love some of the skits on Mr. Hood by KMD as well.

    For those of you who have loved Sunbather by Deafheaven, I think you may find yourself enjoying Sky Swallower by Vattnet Viskar. They definitely play more of a traditional black metal sound, but there are quite a few moments of real beauty and a great understanding of dynamics within a song and development throughout an album. The album begins with a black metal call-to-arms until the drums cut the tempo in half, then in half again, then in half again until it becomes a calm and grandiose stroll that eventually builds back to a climax. Yes, they have the black metal vocal that is tough for some people to get over, and yes they do use tremolo picking and blast beats, but there is so much more than just standard black metal on this one. Along with Sunbather, Soma by Windhand, Vexovoid by Portal and Sky Burial by Inter Arma, this is one of the best albums I've heard this year. Really excellent stuff.

    Juan Atkins & Moritz Von Oswald's collaborative album, Borderland, is fantastic. Exactly what you would expect from the two of them.

    Considering how much I love Sunbather and Vexovoid (haven't heard the others), I think I'll get on this right now.

    Make that Inter Arma album a priority. Of all the metal releases I've heard this year, that's the one that I've connected with the most.

    Yeah, Sky Burial has been in battle with Sunbather for my favorite release of the year. Like Patrick said, give that a spin.

    Damn, the Factory Floor album is a lot of fun. And, this time around, I don't hate fun. Excellent effort by these guys.

    I just finished it, and holy tit sex you guys, the Factory Floor album lives up to all of the pressure they put on themselves with the great EPs, singles and live sets. This thing is a groove monster from front to back. It hits almost every sweet spot for me in regards to a dance album. It's definitely long, but I could have stood for it to be another 2-3 tracks longer, that's how much I enjoyed it. Tons of arpeggiated acid grooves and disembodied voices drifting around the grooves. Sorry Disclosure, you got beat out hardcore in my book for dancey album of the year.

    I like the Disclosure album just fine, but I agree that Factory Floor beat it out. After a bit, I was almost ready for the Disclosure album to end. On the contrary, as Bryan said, I wouldn't have minded at all if the Factory Floor album was longer.

    I don't think they're comparable though. They're doing completely different things within the vague genre of "electronic based dancey music." That Disclosure album is basically just a pop album built upon house and UK garage rhythms.
