some new discoveries, some reviews in progress
The Hawk Is Howling
Didn't enjoy it much at first but now I see its awesomeness. Slowly creeping up my best of Mogwai list, probably equal third with Mr. Beast. Want to review this one but don't know if I'm up to the task of a Mogwai review.
All Eyes Half Mast
Lush, tranquil orchestral rock with a tinge of electronica. Really good stuff, will be checking out their other work.
O Soundtrack My Heart
Really interesting electronica from Australia that's hard to describe. Hopefully my review will do just that.
|4||Godspeed You! Black Emperor|
Slow Riot For New Zero Kanada
Another fine Godspeed release. Needs more time to sink in, but first few listens show more greatness.
Yes, I only heard this for the first time today. No, I don't have an opinion on it yet.
Soundtrack to a Vacant Life
Just awesome. Why it took me so long to get this I don't know.
|7||The Tallest Man on Earth|
Difficult to talk about without mentioning Dylan, so there, Bob fucking Dylan. Rickety folk songs which beam nostalgia, sung with the sort of voice you'll sink into like quicksand. You can struggle all you like but it will just pull you in further.
NEVER WEAR OUT yOUR SUMMER xxx !!!
Jazzy, spastic post rock with a violently but gloriously capricious nature. Really fun, addictive album. Review in progress.
|7 is so fucking good ugh|
|4 is good. |
|4, 6 are both fantastic records, and 5 might finally start growing on me.|
4 hit me as genius upon first listen though
|Minus The Flair|
|First impressions are that it's awesome, but part of the brilliance of Godspeed, for me at least, is how you can appreciate it so much more and really uncover the genius with extensive listening. I'm sure that'll be the same with this one.|
|7 is such a great album, props for that. 4 and 5 are amazing too. 6 is good but hard to listen to all the way through. i need 1|
