    Two recent rap releases that I'm enjoying:

    Step Brothers - Lord Steppington: Alchemist and Evidence produced this album. If you like traditional rappity-rap hip-hop with excellent, boom-bap production, you should check this out. guest raps from Bronson, Marciano, Blu, Domo, Styles P, Fashawn and more. standout tracks are "See The Rich Man Play" and "Banging Sound".


    Young Thug & Bloody Jay - Black Portland: this one's on the more weird, experimental, garbled-rap tip. Young Thug is probably my favorite voice in rap right now. I'd never heard of Bloody Jay until this project but he offers a more grounded approach that balances nicely with Thug's eccentricity. standout tracks are "Danny Glover" and "Florida Water".

    enjoying both those releases as well. Scotty Lavin (Scott Caan from Entourage) rapping on the Step Brothers album was hilarious. I never realized he used to rap with Alchemist back in the day.

    I still haven't fully gotten into Young Thug but I'm intrigued. His voice is out there but I felt the same way about Danny Brown at first and now he's my favorite. So I assume after more listens I'll really start to enjoy his shit

    ha! I had no idea Scott Caan was on there. I just looked up his history with Alchemist. how odd.

    Yeah, it took me a minute to get into Young Thug, but 1017 Thug ended up being one of my favorite releases last year.

    So: if an artist essentially remakes an album that they released 12 years prior, do we hold it against the artist, even if the new album is really good?

    Asking for a friend.

    It's quite similar in style but, at least on my first impression, the tone on this one is just a bit more upbeat than Sea Change. Only just, though.

    After one and a half listens to Morning Phase, I wasn't all that into it. I wasn't really expecting to be, though. I'm not much of a Sea Change fan either. There were a couple standouts but otherwise it was pretty bland. I'm going to give it a few more tries and see if it clicks.

    I've really liked this band's progression since catching them open for Foals in 2010 so I pledged! I can't wait to hear this new album coming out later this year

    Recording our third album with Steve Albini this summer

    Dear Friends,

    We are delighted to announce that this summer we will record our new album with Steve Albini at Electrical Audio in Chicago. This album represents our most exciting and ambitious studio project to date, with a release scheduled for early autumn 2014.

    The new music we have written has become an exploration first and foremost of what we can create while locked away in a small room with just our instruments for company. The songs are led by the primal beat of a drum and the rattle of cymbals. This heartbeat guides the guitars and voice, everything entwined, everything reacting to the sounds around it.

    With Steve’s help, we will capture the live essence of the music we have written, push ourselves as far as possible and make the music as powerful as it can be. The songs are written and ready, the recording dates booked in, and we are asking for your help to support this adventure.

    We will release the album on our very own label, having recently concluded our relationship with Matador. The decision was a mutual one with no ill feeling; we both felt that our futures lay apart. We have wanted to set up a label of our own for a while, so when this opportunity arose, ideas began to crystallise, cogs began turning and the wheels rolled, gradually, into motion.

    In the future we plan to use our label to release music by artists we love as well as anything Esben related. It is to be a hub and an extension of the Esben realm.

    So this is our mission, and we intend to follow it whatever happens. Any pledges you make will go directly towards the recording costs of the new album, and you will get a copy in return – kind of like a pre-order service. We have also created a series of bespoke items that have never before seen the yellow light, black cloth and battered coat hangers of the merch stand.


    One such item is a bonus EP called “And new life blossoms from the ruins”. It will only be available through Pledge Music, and contains five tracks – atmospheric drones and jams that began life as wandering guitar passages and are now accompanied by ambient vocal loops, underpinned by synths and feedback. We’ve taken these songs in a different direction but feel they will serve as a fine companion to the new album. Each signed EP comes in a hand-assembled sleeve with a cover drawn by Rachel.

    We encourage you to browse the list and pledge whatever feels right to you.

    Thank you for all your support.

    Onwards!

    Daniel, Thomas and Rachel

    Spooks, this thread is for you to tell us what you think about 2014 releases. And also, if you're going to post about a band, maybe indicate who it is prior to the last sentence?

    Those of you claiming the Beck album is the same as Sea Change may want to revisit that release. Similar instrumentation, but I got a very different feel from it on first listen, and second spin only confirmed that.

    Really loving the BANKS single produced by Shlohmo. Excited to hear this girl's album...

    Andrew Ashong's new EP is fucking brilliant as well. His EP 'Flowers' from 2012 was one of my favs of that year. He's back with these cleaaaaaaan sounds that get me moving. This is one of the tracks (ripped from Gilles Peterson's radio show, so I can't comment on quality. The real one is out now though).



    Also, this self-titled debut by Eagulls is pretty awesome. Just a couple songs in but really enjoying it. Excellent post-punk vibes.

    I'm going to blatantly break the rules here and, in the hopes that the actual album will come out this year, use this thread to discuss how awesome the Jai Paul leaked album from last year is. Really, really good.

    Second new song from forthcoming The Men album Tomorrow's Hits is previewed here.

    It is also exceedingly awesome.

    Sunn O))) & Ulver - Terrestrials is a beautiful piece of modern composition, borderline minimalism at times, and it was a very happily surprising album throughout. I think it's the best thing I've ever heard that Sunn has been a part of. While there are still some deep drones (mostly confined to track 2), it's not your typical Sunn O))) BRRRRM record.

    Oren Ambarchi - Amulet is something I had been skeptical to hear because they are live recordings made on an iPhone, but the sound fidelity is actually quite good and the music is worth hearing. The first track starts out with chimes that continue throughout behind noise from what I assume is Ambarchi's tabletop guitar. The second track contains the same chimes, but here they are the focus, and it's a much gentler, more subtle song.

    Oh my, this is very, very nice; you'd think it would essentially defeat from their ramshackle aesthetic, but the increased production fidelity actually has really worked out well on these first two singles.

    The Sun Kil Moon album is as good or better as advertised. It is literary in the best sense of the word, brimming with emotion and life and humor and anger and confession and insight and love. "I Can't Live Without My Mother's Love," is the most devastatingly beautiful song I've heard in years; it's the one that drove me to tears, not the one about mass shooting victims, or the two about working class relatives dying horrific deaths in freak accidents. The amount and quality of detail in these songs is astounding. It's late and I need to go to bed, but I just want to keep listening to this thing, mining every little reference and parsing each piece of world play. Just an incredible piece of work.

    Blank Realm's Grassed In is super super awesome. A lot of "garage rock" these days, I'd guess you call it, is super samey and boring but not this. You guys should check it out if you haven't already! Especially if you like Thee Oh Sees or Black Lips.

    Agreed! Absolutely awesome record! Always liked his stuff but this is by far the best work he's put out. Incredible lyrics and overall vibe to the album... completely sucks you in.
