    Petit Cochon by Prostitutes is a really excellent electronic/industrial sort of album...would actually be a much more fitting opening act for Ben Frost than Tim Hecker is (although obviously no one's complaining). The album's not nearly as aggressive as Frost's latest, and not as effective, but is still real good.

    I've enjoyed everything I've heard from him, and he tends to open for most of the techno shows that rarely happen in Cleveland. Usually short sets but really enjoyable.

    This album is solid. It's such a great sound from start to finish. Adding it to my daily listen for a few weeks.

    I should try to listen to Royal Blood again I take it because I couldn't even finish a song.

    I really like the new Death From Above 1979 album with Virgins being my favorite off my first listen. I also listened to half of the new Ryan Adam - s/t which My wrecking ball being the only song that really stood out to me. I'm aout to check out this Afrobeat psych band out called Red Snapper new released called "Hyena".

    Fuck. The Physical World is SO good. I mean... I am a bit biased because of my long love for the band, but part of me was really expecting to be let down by this album, and "Trainwreck 1979" only made the fears worse. But this album is just a seething beast. Off my first listen "Right On, Frankenstein!" is my favourite, but aside from "Trankwreck" and "White is Red," every damn song could be my favourite at this point. And those two songs I mentioned aren't even bad... they just aren't up the par with the rest of the album.

    I will be the first to say this isn't as monstrous of an album as You're A Woman... and sure, there is no track as good as "Romantic Rights," but goddammit this album fucking slays.

    I keep hearing all these positive reviews about the new Interpol record. After one spin it's surely far more listenable than that awful last record, but seems equally soulless. This is a band that really needs hooks in their songs, and just like the last one they're not there for the most part. Nothing anywhere as substantial as even Pioneer to the Falls or No I in Threesome from their third album.

    Man, that Blonde Redhead album is disappointing. It shouldn't really surprise me since I only got into them around 23 and that is still really their only album that I like.

    "Nothin Left" and "Gemini" have been the standouts for me through a couple listens. This is much more than I expected. "White is Red" did catch me by surprise the first time and it felt out of place, but I'm glad they decided to expand way outside their comfort zone on that one.

    Only listened to it once so far, but I really dug the new DFA. I was also initially worried after hearing Trainwreck, but I thought that song was fine in the context of the album. Gonna be spinning it a lot.

    If you like Tame Impala but wished they were a little more fierce and scuzzy, check out Wand's excellent debut Ganglion Reef. I've come to grips with the fact that blatantly derivative psychedelia is here to stay for now, so if you're onboard with that way of thinking and like the genre in general you'll really enjoy this.

    I like Trainwreck quite a bit, but it's also probably my least favorite song on the album. That said, what a bummer for these guys to release a raw, elemental rock record weeks before the new Shellac album drops.

    I was almost expecting to be disappointed with the new DFA79 record, since records after reunions are often not very good. But god damn, this thing is really good so far. Not as raw as their first, but these guys still know how to write a killer hook.

    Rly rly fun album.
    Also the "World Music" album by Ahnnu that came out a few months ago is prime fair for those who love "The Caretaker" I would imagine.

    ^ I think that Ahnnu album came out at the tail end of 2013, but I agree that it's a really interesting and engaging listen - I can't believe how much gets packed into such a short space!

    Ahh my b. band camp said April but I forget that is usually wrong. But yeah really unique album for sure.

    Also I can't really stop spinning that Moodyman record from this year, it's got some corny parts and skip able sections but the grooves are undeniably groovy

    And the Kassem Mosse album is particularly mesmerizing. Reminds me a small bit of Aphex Twin at points, and like Daniel Avery at others, really just in its own world.

    Wasn't all that impressed by The Rentals' album. Some good songs, but more meh than good. If we're making totally uncalled for rankings, I'd rank it below The Green Album and even the unfairly maligned Maladroit. It's better than any other post-Sharp Weezer record though.

    never cared for Morrissey much, undoubtedly due to dramatic suffering with the Smiths involving carpooling as a teen, but his latest World Peace is pretty interesting through the first eight tracks. The musicianship with the flamenco guitar, lyrical subject matter, and nice mix of harder hitting rock songs. 'Neal Cassidy Dead/Ginsberg Reaction' is hilarious. Not going to look further into his back catalog, at least I hope I'm not, as it's too extensive and I'm sure very similar to this output anyway but who knows?

    Fourthing or Fithing the Ty Segall Manipulator album endorsement. Haven't heard anything as sexy in a while. I know it's kinda retro-y Bowie/Trex/hints of Supergrass, but 'The Singer'. Oh my, how the angels fell down. Beady Eye, that terrible Oasis band offshoot, would kill to be able to write a song like 'The Faker' now.

    Death From Above 1979 have proven they can write more than one fucking awesome record. Right On, Frankenstein is one of my favorite tracks, while Cheap Talk opens up this album just as I was hoping. Crystall Ball and Trainwreck 1979 have killer verses as well which helps cement this as an album to truly admire

    Yeah. Completely taken aback by how absolutely great the new record is. I should have known those smug Canadian fucks would know better than to ease up on the throttle.

    I'm pretty much their biggest fan I know and even I am stunned at how great the new record is. The songs have already begun to lodge themselves in my head. I don't think they will ever be able to top You're A Woman, in my opinion, but I don't think anyone was asking them too. All everyone wanted was a kick ass record and that is exactly what they delivered.

    I've been really enjoying Adult Jazz's Gist Is - it's one of the best debut albums I've heard this year (very fully-realized and a sound which is very much their own), and if you're a fan of Dirty Projectors, Wild Beasts, early Grizzly Bear, etc. you'll find a lot to like here.

    Just listened to Karen O's solo album, I gotta say it's rather disappointing. I was not expecting it to sound like a YYY's album, because without Nick and Brian how could it? But I was expecting something more than what it is. She's a great vocalist but that's all the album has. Other than her vocals it's acoustic guitar (and not very interesting acoustic guitar) and... nothing else. Add to that that it sounds like it was recorded on a phone and it just left me pretty cold. I think I'll feel pretty comfortable skipping her tour.
