    Lykke Li's latest album is pretty solid. It's much more gloomy than I expected and not as poppy as her previous two records. Most of the tracks feature softer percussion and a thinner sound which tends to focus more on her vocals. The real appeal here is that it never seems to drag on with a very short length (9 tracks, 30 min range), making replays pretty easy. Overall, it's very different and unexpected but I like what I've heard after 3 or so listens this week.

    When there isn't any balance and the whole record is bleak, sure. I still enjoyed it, but I would have prefered a few tracks that had some more soul or energy. If she had stretched the album out to 40 or 45 minutes it would have been a rough listen.

    Anyone waiting around to see if the Slowdive reunion results in new music should check out Hierarchy by Lightfoils. I'm not sure it adds anything new to the shoegaze genre, but when the tunes are this good I find it hard to complain about lack of originality.

    At first I was a bit confused by all these "accessible" comments, as it didn't feel any more accessible than whokill is, but the more I've listened to Nikki Nack I suppose I can see where it comes from as it seems she's streamlined/reeled-in her sound a bit. In other words, the songs are a little more focused and don't have as many odd flourishes within a given track, and that seems to have really worked well as the album is really, really strong. I also cannot wait for ridiculous critical debates which I'm sure "Rocking Chair" will undoubtedly create.

    Glenn Kotche, the drummer for Wilco, has released a modern classical album called Adventureland that's really solid. An interesting look into what else he's capable of.

    I really enjoyed my first listen of the new Black Keys album. Some really great tracks on this one; "Weight of Love" and "Bullet in the Brain" hit my personal classic rock sweet spots about as perfectly as possible. My guess is that I may be in a small minority of people who end up being genuinely enthusiastic about it, though. I have a feeling that they may have doubly screwed themselves by making an album that won't immediately appeal to either of their key audiences. It will be too polished and boring and corporate for the "I just want them to go back to Thickfreakness!" crowd, though I suspect many of those people have already checked out by this point. And the people who came on board for the last two or three albums will probably be disappointed that there's nothing on here that pops like "Tighten Up," or "Lonely Boy," or "Gold on the Ceiling" did; if El Camino capitalized and expanded on the commercial appeal that the band accrued with Brothers, this may well do the opposite.

    BUT, if you are looking for a mature record by a big tent, populist rock band (in an era that doesn't have many of those left), one made with poise, confidence, and above all chops, then this album delivers.

    Natural Child was a recent discovery. Good, low-key, 70's classic rock that would have sounded good on 8-track (with the colored-light speakers).
    I have been to concerts. I will go to concerts in the future.

    I think this is a pretty good description of the album. It tries to find a comfortable place somewhere between the last two albums, but to me this one is just really boring. It's not bad, it's just not very interesting. I can't really see myself going back to this any time soon.

    Respect your opinion as much as anyone's on this board. Definitely one of the last 10 year's strongest recording acts, no denying that. Very adventurous, but a bit too hit and miss due to that adventurousness for me. Microcastle and Halcyon are damn fine records, Monomania solid but just that, Cryptograms outside of the title track and one or two others is a chore.

    Their greatest hits album over this stretch would stand with the best of them, but to put these guys above 2004-2014 LCD Soundsystem, Kanye, The National, Nick Cave (if we include Grinderman), or maybe even a few sleeper smaller output/visibility but higher average-album quality choices like Wild Beasts, Grizzly Bear, or Anais Mitchell...no way.

    I would agree with LCD. A lot of people wouldn't agree maybe but... I put TV on the Radio in that discussion.

    Not to further derail this thread, but I have problems with Deerhunter for reasons I don't understand, so I definitely wouldn't feel compelled to give them this honor. I don't know why, but there is something about their records that are off-putting to me. I continue to try listening every time they are released though. And =for whatever reason, I like both Atlas Sound and Lotus Plaza a lot.

    Bradford Cox sits in that rarified Neil Young air in my mind. He shits out pure gold the way most people could shit out Limp Bizkit songs. I'm also an unabashed adorer of Krautrock, Garage Rock, Punk, Psych, 50s Rock and Alt Rock, which is basically the mix that they have perfected.

    I could see Deerhunter converting people with their live show, but I will also say that, barring Cryptograms, each Deerhunter album has taken me a few plays to get into. They're a band that has truly blossomed for me with each successive listen.

    Unfortunately the only time I've seen them was the first two-thirds of their 2010 Coachella set, and they had all sorts of audio problems, which on top of the super-fuzzed out tones they were going for that day really hampered the set...I came away liking what I saw of their show, but not overwhelmingly impressed, and thought both Desire Lines and Nothing Ever Happened lacked the extra-oomph one would expect to get seeing those songs performed live...the way Future Islands tracks off of Singles like Doves and Spirit exploded live this year.

    I def agree their albums are mostly growers, especially Halcyon which did little for me on first listen but is now probably my favorite of theirs.

    Interesting that you compare them to Neil Young...hadn't thought of that, but the risk taking, the stylistic eclecticism, the vocal limitations that are very effectively gotten around...a very apt comparison.

    I definitely disagree re: Nothing Ever Happened (especially at that Coachella set!) but yeah having seen Desire Lines I think 3 times live now it comes off incredibly flat compared to that wonderful studio version.

    This is the third album they've made since reuniting and not one of them have come anywhere close to a bad listen. At this point I'm not sure Swans are even capable of making bad music. Went and bought a ticket for their Detroit show immediately after listening to To Be Kind once. Fuck, this album is so good.
