|Some Good Albums: A 2014 Story|
Some Good Albums that have come out this year. I don't really post here very much
anymore but happy 150th list to me. Hurrah!!! List is in order of release date, older
A great, fitting soundtrack by a band I didn't know had it in them. Phenomenal movie,
Pale Blue Light
hardcore for pussies that is pretty good!
A disappointing follow-up to one of 2010's best debut LPs, but Warpaint have their
discography off the ground with two strong albums.
Transgender Dysphoria Blues
only included because I want people to think I'm hip and know a lot about gender politics
|5||Thee Silver Mount Zion|
Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light on Everything
This still gets my vote for 2014's best album. I'm very much in alignment with the things they
say about the state of the world, and their music pairs with the sombre tone perfectly. This is
enchanting, enthralling, engrossing, enEVERYTHINGing.
Hey also this is pretty tight. One of the songs has a pretty swell bass part that always gets
me a hummin.
Top Dawg with another Top Releawse
[something about sputnik here]
God I love this record. It helped me through a very heavy mushroom trip and for that I am
Wilt and Rise
I wish this had been better but it's still pretty neat. Thro yer bows up for Cornwall.
Wild Beasts stay weirdly consistent.
Home, Like NoPlace Is There
Now I can't claim to like this as much as some people but hey I did try.
Things I like: some ScHoolboy songs. Things I do not like: most of ScHoolboy's fans. Yak Yak
Yak Yak shut the fuck up and take off that hat it looks horrible on you.
Annie Clark is just the best that's all I can say. One of the best shows of my festival heavy
summer was St. Vincent for sure. God she rocks.
It's like if Mac DeMarco were a little bit good-er.
sometimes my friends and I listen to music and take our shirts off and dance. now you know
The Take Off And Landing Of Everything
or, How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Enjoy Elbow's Music
Say Yes To Love
More like say yes to perfect pussy HAHAHAHA right? god we are so funny, go internet!
|19||The War On Drugs|
Lost In The Dream
It's raining again and this city sucks in the rain but hey it sucks just a little bit less when
you're listening to these noises on this here record.
Rooms Of The House
yeah sure I still like La Dispute throw er on
|21||Freddie Gibbs and Madlib|
Cue someone calling me a phony for not liking other Freddie Gibbs albums very much.
music to fornicate with hippies to
album still slamz but I'm mad at Liars still for not showing up at Sasquatch and then not
telling anyone what was going on until after (causing a bunch of people to miss De La Soul,
god this is good. Fuck you Adam I'm taking Love American off this list.
So It Goes
"I had to laugh like hell."
It's Album Time
sometimes we also take our pants off
E S T A R A
sometimes we don't
With Light And With Love
With Light And With Rudy Klapper
I kind of thought I'd be over this band but nope still love love love them. This is like my
second or third favourite of the year I know right what.
More Than Any Other Day
This band is playing downtown in a few hours but it's shitty out and I'm poor and no one can
come with me. I do not know what to do. More at 11.
|35||Andrew Jackson Jihad|
I find it strange that this is the record that seems to be losing them fans. Heh? It's an AJJ
record and it's good.
I miss summer
Cry Is For The Flies
Teri GenderBender Suarez kills it live in every band. Their drummer goes hard to. The bass
player just stands there and plays notes but hey they're the right ones at least! Neat band!
|38||Sharon Van Etten|
Are We There
Review Summary: you like it.
|40||First Aid Kit|
I'm such a sucker for this kinda shit. You knew this already.
Obligatory "look, Vancouver has a couple cool bands!" comment.
The Antlers still sound like The Antlers in case you were wondering.
|43||How To Dress Well|
What Is This Heart?
Dude I own two cardigans get outta my face.
Never Hungover Again
They'll be hungover again. Bonus point for Frances Quinlan on the cover.
They look like a cult when they play shows. Are they a cult?
Maybe she won't though, you know?
|47||The New Pornographers|
BUH BAHHH BU BU BU BAHHHHHH
|48||Death From Above 1979|
The Physical World
My expectations for this were way too high. It's exactly as good as it was ever going to be.
You and your friends are dead!
Tomorrow's Modern Boxes
Yeah I like it, sue me. It was between this and Aphex Twin for the last spot, how much do you
hate that I chose this?
