|Summer Is Boring Me -- 1/2 Way Mark.|
So, this is srsly the coolest album ever, this year.
Merriweather Post Pavilion
OMGOMGOMGOMG HHHYYYPPPEE!! Fuck you, it rules.
Meticulous craftsmanship and the sheer amount of talent pays off in full. How does one follow a break-out record? By trouncing it in every way possible. Cleaner, sweeter melodies, more powerful songwriting -- every note has it's place, they don't meander as they did so much on 'Yellow House' & 'Horn Of Plenty'. Just concise, gorgeous chamber pop.
Laughing with a mouth of blood from a little spill I took...
|5|| ||Yeah Yeah Yeahs|
This shit is awesome.
|6||The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart|
The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart
I dunno, iz so good.
My Maudlin Career
Finally, they create full lush music, as opposed to just blatantly (amazingly) ripping Belle & Sebastian's early twee pop.
|8||Bat For Lashes|
And with two suns spinning, At two different speeds.
|9|| ||The Juan Maclean|
The Future Will Come
boss electro from(most of) the folks who brought you LCD Soundsystem.
Love so much that I can't survive.
Dark Was The Night
Yeah, still in heavy rotation. I usually hate comps.
Wilco (The Album)
Camels are cool, right?
I like fuzz! :D
Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix
Our daily compromising is written in your signed armistice.
Mmm a fresh pile of E.
may be their best actually.
|18|| ||Handsome Furs|
The better Wolf Parade side project release a sophomore effort that stomps their debut. That's legal tender.
this is killer.
|20|| ||White Rabbits|
They're on auto pilot, with Britt Daniels behind the boards. It's still pretty good, but they've lost their sense of urgency.
Nina ditches the Cardigans and her and Hubby try to create some grass roots, baroque pop(wtf?) and do a pretty good job.
|22||De La Soul|
Are You In?
Yes, yes I am.
I just got this, but it's so good.
|24||Method Man and Redman|
So you've totally heard this all before, but these dudes haven't lost a step really. This album is boss. Get it.
