    Giddy Motors were really one of the most vicious bands ever.

    Really love the new Taylor McFerrin album from Brainfeeder. Awesome forward-thinking jazz with lots of complex rhythms and melodies. Very beautiful and deep work, looking forward to unpacking it more as the year goes on.

    Mexican band Molotov just released their 6th studio album "Agua Maldita". I have always been fascinated with this band for two reasons: a) they have 2 bass players and b) they're a fucking badass live band so that makes up for the all the rap. I've seen them live quite a few times now and every show has been full of energy and loud. They have one bass player plays these deep grunchy and sometimes funky bass lines and the other one does these awesome riffs or slaps with a heavy metal distortion or very clean and crispy punk style bass chord progressions.

    Well, I think Agua Maldita is the first album that successfully captures this energy. It's more raw and not as over-produced as previous albums. They have a few songs with Markey Mark and MCDaniels (Again N'Again and La Raza Pura...) which are ok. I still like the other heavier songs much better. Some good songs where these double bass combinations stand out are: Olere Olere Olere el UHU, Fuga, Gonner and Lagunas Mentales.

    The new Greys album If Anything is pretty damn awesome and you all should check it out. Being a hardcore band from Toronto, the METZ comparisons are going to be inevitable, but the band are a lot more than that. Considering how hard this band is able to rock, they show an incredible amount of restraint followed by explosive bursts of energy that remind me a bit of Fugazi, and I don't say that just because the first track on the album is called "Guy Picciotto." Through a lot of the album, the band comes across as the best Hot Snakes impersonators since the band broke up - but this is not meant as an insult, its a compliment because god dammit there should be more Hot Snakes impersonators out there. Anyways, the album will have you head banging in no time, and the album rip and roars like a motherfucker. Really great things to hear from a band I first saw at my friends house party 3 years ago.

    Wasn't overly thrilled with Everyday Robots the first time I listened to it, but pretty much have done a 180 since then. Albarn's just a fantastic songwriter.

    Also, gave the new Real Estate another spin and it still feels like a lifeless retread. Then again, it's hard to follow an album like Days. I'm sure the new tunes will sound better live, though.

    Swans, Swans, Swans...can't get myself to listen to anything else right now...with The Seer and To Be Kind, band has now put out what are to my ears, 2 of the 5 best albums of this young decade...along with MBDTF, Let England Shake, and Benji.

    Even though they've been around since the 80s and half the band is in their fifties - this is the band of the first half of this decade right here folks, no one has been better on record 2010 - 2014.

    No one.

    This reminds me that I'm surprised nobody has started a mid-decade "50 Best Albums of 2010-14" thread yet.

    So I've heard...does Tollett have the balls to get them here in 2015 and give them the 90 minute Gobi closing slot against the weekend's most mainstream headliner their style and quality of recent output demands?

    I'm gonna catch them here in LA in September and not roll the dice, but would love to see Coachella land them.

    No one's done a "so we're halfway through 2014 thread" yet either, which is usually started a bit before the halfway mark...then again is that sticky thread that MiroirNoir started just going to take the place of it?

    One of the most pleasant surprise releases for me this year has been Lee Perry's Back on the Controls; most of his material over the last 20+ years has ranged from meh to "What was he thinking?," but this album is really a return to form. Essentially he worked to re-create his Black Ark studio by sticking to recording techniques and vintage gear used for his more seminal 70s releases, something which gives the album a very traditional sound, and took a stronger role in the production than he has in the past - all of which has led to a solid reggae dub album, one which even contains the requisite dub versions of each track which Lee mixed himself.

    Alexander Turnquist's newest, Flying Fantasy is a fantastic 12 string guitar album with heavy focus on harmonics, often with accompaniment from strings and mallet percussion. It was officially released today and can be found on Spotify. Highly recommended. If you listened to his last album, Hallyway of Mirrors, this is very similar but seems more developed and fleshed out in subtle ways. The centerpiece of the album can be found here and is tremendous: https://soundcloud.com/western_vinyl...-turnquist-red

    Perturbator have a new album out now! They make really dancey, dark, melodramatic synth-driven music, which si essentially like 80s action movie scores. The albums is availble to stream and can be downloaded for "Pay what you want." Their stuff is really great.

    Listened to the new Mastodon album Once More Round The Sun and I'm having mixed feelings about it. Not crazy about the vocals. I preferred the vocals in the first 3 albums compared to the direction they've been going in since Crack the Skye. This new album is very proggy. I know Mastodon has leaned in that direction for a while but this almost overkill. Overall I like it a lot more than The Hunter which never really grew on me, but I don't see this being a repeat listen aside from a couple tracks. It just feels like all of their aggression has been sucked dry with this album.

    Courting Strong, the debut by Martha, is pretty swell. It reminds me a lot of the super-catchy, kinda ramshackle stuff that was coming out of the U.K. in the mid-90s. Think Ash, Urusei Yatsura, or Boyracer, only with snotty boy/girl vocals. It makes for a nice companion to the Parquet Courts album. In fact, throw in Dalliance, the new one by Gold-Bears, and you've got a pretty nifty triptych of 21st Century albums inspired by bands of the 90s. Considering I generally hated the 90s, I'm sort of impressed with how much I enjoy some of these albums.

    I'm waiting until I can find a 320 to listen to the new Mastodon. It's good to know you like it better than The Hunter, because I actually did like The Hunter. Though, I think it is their weakest album.

    If quality really matters to you then you might wait for a vinyl rip. The instruments on this have a tendency to really drown out the vocals on several occasions.

    Last night I listened to Four Infernal Rivers, a collaboration between Tom Carter of Charalambides and Pat Murano of the No Neck Blues Band. Really cool long form improvisation stuff. A little droney, a little noisey, a little chaotic, a little soothing. There's four pieces around 20 minutes each, and they all have their own identity and flow as whole units, but they're also constantly changing and taking interesting new directions. For its avant garde nature, it's a really easy album to just soak up and listen to. Highly recommend.

    The best part about that Mastodon video is how douche the ] bully looks when he hits his vape pen. Also I kinda wish I still played D&D after watching the video.

    Really loving the new White Lung. This album has much more range than their previous work but still hits hard like Sorry and It's the Evil. Never would have thought "catchy" would be a good way of describing a White Lung album.
