02.03.14 January Tracks12.03.11 Awesome Songs Of 2011

January Tracks

Nice songs from 2014's first jam.
1Stephen Malkmus
Wig Out At Jagbags

"J Smoov". Smooth track. Love the atmosphere construction and the guitar work.

"Away". Ridiculously pretty song. I understand when people say that they've got too generic, but you can't deny the power of harmonies like the ones in this song and in "Delivrance".
3East India Youth
Total Strife Forever

"Dripping Down". Almost everyone who talked to me about this album said that "he got good ideas but most of then aren't well developed". Well, I can say that the harmonic and percussive constructions on this one are what we can call a good development.
4Against Me!
Transgender Dysphoria Blues

"Transgender Dysphoria Blues". There are so many awesome songs in this album that it was almost impossible to choose. But hearing Laura begging to be accepted as a normal person at the title track, and at the same time dealing with the truth, almost sums up the meaning of the entire album.
Pale Blue Light

"Rent". As a die-hard fan of 90s' emo, "Rent" works for me at it's desperation's beauty. It's dynamics were the thing that most caught my attention.
6Marissa Nadler

"Drive". A friend of mine told me it was already the album of the year for him, and that it will hardly change. I started to listen to "July", and couldn't get past the first song. It was so pretty I needed to replay it a lot of times. And still need to sometimes.
7Thee Silver Mount Zion
Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light on Everything

"What We Love Was Not Enough". It's basically Godspeed You! Black Emperor but more accessible. Got's the same characteristic that can turn GY!BE absolutely eternal: it's political music, but with almost no use of words. FUCKING HOPE!
8Young the Giant
Mind Over Matter

"Waves". Not so strange ways had come to Young the Giant. They are writing about vague things, about things that try to be bigger than life. But that's a moment of grown. And if the Young the Giant keep making songs as beauty as "Waves", they can have a nice future.

"Biggy". The most interesting thing I could find in the new Warpaint album was this synth lick. After three or four listens, the entire song got awesome.
10Bill Callahan
Have Fun With God

"Highs In The Mid-40s Dub". The percussion in this thing just destroys my heart.
11Have a Nice Life
The Unnatural World

"Burial Society". It feels like Dead Can Dance meeting Nine Inch Nails. And that's just too awesome.

"Forgiven". One of my dreams is to study neurology and how can our brains feel pleasure. In these terms, tha first track of "Ghettoville" intrigued me because I felt a kind of pleasure that wasn't meant to work with these types of songs.

"Wonderland". So, so, so fun.
14The Notwist
Close to the Glass

"Run Run Run". Awesome collages forming a nice percussion set, built around pretty melody and harmonies.
15Woods of Desolation
As The Stars

"Withering Field". Fuck yeah Deafheaven. Awesome guitar lick.
16Damien Jurado
Brothers and Sisters of the Eternal Son

"Jericho Road". Best sing-a-long song of the year thus far.
17Dum Dum Girls
Too True

"Too True to Be Good". Just too catchy.
18Show Me a Dinosaur

"Rain". Great post-rock album. Song has the best climax in the whole record.
19Bohren & Der Club Of Gore
Piano Nights

"Ganz Leise Kommt Die Nacht". A good definition of doom jazz.

"Magdalena". My song of the year thus far. Got everything that an awesome indie rock song needs. The chorus is absolutely stunning.
