Coming to a Holly Herndon show near you!
Holly Herndon and Prurient getting BNM'd are both justified in my eyes. Both are fascinating and thrilling experimental records and I've been loving them.
Frozen Niagara Falls by Prurient is unbelievably good. So much sonic ground is covered across the albums, and even the tracks in themselves shift between coherent but different states. The feedback...
Holy fuck the new Holly Herndon is good. The entire thing is a glorious mess.
Ah, you're right. Flog me.
The highlight of Drake's set was when some drunk guy yelled "YOU GOT HERPES NOW" after the Madonna kiss. He also warned me not to touch a rail because someone peed on it. I miss you drunk Drake guy.
This would be better suited to the thread in which we discuss 2015 releases.
The only thing with any potential in my eyes is if Joanna Newsom cranks out an Ys-level album, however given the proclivity of surprise announcements this year it seems like anything is open at this...
The Great Music Flood continues.
My friend and I have had heated discussions as to whether or not Biophilia is a grandma album, as it seems to fit every category of one. However Björk might be one of the few artists who has...
Finally got around to listening to Courtney Barnett. How is this year of music even possible?
I'm pretty sure that Lulu can claim a spot here too.
Hazards of Love is also a grandma album by the numbers.
Same. Friends and I refer to this as the "Grandma Album", referring to when the Fiery Furnaces made Rehearsing My Choir. Basically it's when a band is on the crest of a wave of critical praise and...
In other news, heard a preview of Hot Chip's new one and was left underwhelmed. It's never bad really, but it's an album bookended by two excellent singles and filled with 8 ones that are fine...
I'll get on finding away to group it soon, but know now that The Magic Whip has been worth the wait.
Lower Dens - Escape From Evil
*Missing Track 8*
Pursuant to the discussion of the new Sun Kil Moon single: What the FUCK was that?
A friend had it and we listened, but I'm not sure how he found it as the web seems dry. Probably a passing along thing at this state. Im hesitant to put it in Blackswan's thread because of this,...
Lower Dens is lovely. There is this nice harmony between the spartan synth work akin to Wild Beast's last album and the increased focus on brighter and richer tones throughout. The few ballads are...
Also, Coachella, in two months this year has given you WAY MORE THAN ENOUGH material to knock it out of the park in 2016. If you get your hands on Björk, Blur, Godspeed! You Black Emperor, Sleater...
"Hey everyone, it's me, 2015. I read all of your posts about the War On Drugs topping 2014 album of the year lists, and honestly I was a little weirded out by it too. So, here's a shitload of huge...
That Purity Ring is just sad to me. The whole thing sounds like it got an EDM enema and is completly bloodless. It has moments that invoke their debut but it's way too little to salvage it.
I don't remember exactly which song, or at what point it comes on, or what about the part reminded me of him, but I remember that one of the songs really sounded like The Haxan Cloak.
It seems like they don't care all that much about the album itself. They haven't really given much attention to its tracks and what not, however they've all been at the least enjoyable.
That Viet Cong album is fucking on point. Every shift in the songs is thrilling and all of the playing is in lockstep. Loving it.
Also, for a year that had a relative dearth of 9+ scores, seeing this one sneak in with a bang at the end is supremely satisfying. Both Sleater-Kinney and Panda Bear seem like early contenders for a...
Agreed on the quality of review, emphatically agreed on the quality of the album. The thing is absolutely bewitching.
Bracing for Beyoncé at No. #1 impact.
For the record, Swans' "Bring The Sun/Toussaint L'Ouverture" is my song of the year because it is indeed what I play most often right before sex.
I think that songs that are able to effectively capture the zeitgeist of a year, especially if that response is towards a critical issue such as race during a boiling point, have all the right to be...
"Boys Latin" and "Acid Wash" are the ones that slay for me as well, although "Mr. Noah" is indeed equal to them in my opinion. That bouncing vocal line in paricular on "Boys Latin" is basically...
Panda Bear starts the party on this one for me, and it's quite the debut for a new year of music. Keep it going here.
Really confused by the Ariel Pink/Azaelia Banks "Nude Beach A-Go-Go" pseudo collaboration that is on her new album.
Philip Sherburne casting his bid as an Oracle of Delphi at the end of the Arca review.
Just got done listening to Run The Jewels 2. I'm pretty sure I farted out my soul from pure joy when the beat dropped on "Oh My Darling Don't Cry".
Pharmakon' new one is next level shit. Given the backstory of her emergency surgery leading into the album, the broken body motif pops up throughout and when it does its skin crawling. "Primitive...
Pharmakon-Bestial Burden (Stream rip I think)
Harrowing shit, right here.
It's a textbook example of a grower. On the first listen I was like "This is fucking incoherent", but by the third or fourth everything locked into place and the thing started firing on all...
Perfume Genius's new album is on NPR and definitely worth a listen. The new aggression in the electronics isn't carried throughout, but when it hits, it hits hard.
Yes. Yes it is.
Lulz aplenty on pitchfork today. Between that story and the Morrissey hitman one, assholes rule the day.
Edit: And yes, I know that the Morrissey story could very well be a baseless allegation,...
I heard it's going to be released in Braille this time.
I at least was hoping for an act of arson or something on the way out.
"Pour Cyril" on How To Dress Well's new one is a really striking moment on an album with plenty of them. It's quite pleasant when the clipped distortion similar to that of Love Remains flows over...
