Back To The Grind

Back to Sputnik after a rather refreshing month off, it'll be nice to catch up with people again. I plan to start reviewing pretty soon though I may take the rest of August off from that standpoint (unless I can figure out how to write up something for the fucking fantastic new-ish Walton album). List is albums I've picked up yesterday and today
1Washed Out
Paracosm


Took a trip to a sweet local music store (Newbury Comics) and they always have some pretty good stuff at low prices as well as deep discounts on new releases. This was one of the things I got there
2Two Fingers
Stunt Rhythms


Also from NC. Got the deluxe edition for $13 which I'm pretty pumped about, plus the packaging is absolutely sweet.
3No Age
An Object


Never really listened to lo-fi-ish stuff, but the packaging was way too cool to pass up for $10 and I'd heard good things about the group
4The Pains of Being Pure At Heart
Belong


Also from NC
5Ellie Goulding
Halcyon


Also from NC
6 Actress
R.I.P.


Amazon's holding an "EDM sale" for their MP3 department so I figured I'd pop by and see if I could get any guilty pleasure albums for cheap but it turned out they actually had some pretty sweet stuff on sale. This was one of them
7Amon Tobin
ISAM


Also from Amazon
8The Glitch Mob
Drink The Sea


Also from Amazon, and before some elitist prick gets pissy about them not being "tr00 glitch" I find them rather enjoyable and easy to listen to so I figured why not
9Philip Glass
Einstein on the Beach


My mom got this for me for my birthday, and I haven't really had a chance to listen to it yet (and it's hella dense at 200+ minutes of music, yeesh) but I've heard really good things about it so why the hell not
10BT
A Song Across Wires


I was super skeptical about this one when I first heard about it and the dubstep song with Fractal is pretty horrid (which was my first experience with the album) but the whole thing isn't all that bad. Think These Hopeful Machines without certain charms in that it's ambitious and overlong as usual but it's all kinda been done before at this point
11 Auxiliary Phoenix
Skribbl


Sweet experimental electronic that's free on Bandcamp, definitely worth a check
12Danny Brown
XXX


Finally goddamn got around to dl'ing this, and it's about as good as expected (which is to say very)
13 K.Flay
What If It Is


Saw her live at a festival on August 10th and was blown away, so I checked out some of her stuff and she's really really good. Think hyper-intelligent and hyper- energetic minimalist (?) rap.
14 Mark Pritchard
Lock Off


Got an advance dl of this thanks to my other blog but I'm not really sure if I'm feeling it yet
15 Stealth
Scrummage / Nanite


A sweet DnB single which isn't really inventive but is wicked fun nonetheless, worth a check
16Gorillaz
Demon Days


Had this CD for ages but finally downloaded it today
17Walton
Beyond


Not a new purchase by any means but god damn is it some sweet-ass garage. Probably the best garage album of the year, screw Disclosure and Phaeleh (though both of theirs were good too)
18AlunaGeorge
Body Music


Seeing these two Sept. 7, super pumped about that
