|Back To School Jams|
Yeah, now that a month of school has gone by, I have gotten used to my
school/work schedule and have made a little bit of precious time to listen to
music. So here's the recent playlist -
|1||Deer Leap and The World Is A Beautiful Place...|
Are Here To Help You
Just found this split release; It's a great emo/post-rock sound.
|2||The Sun and the Ocean|
Before I was God
One of my top releases of 2013 - a promising debut album incorporating outstanding
acoustics, tight electronic samples, and shimmering vocals.
Not as great as Sigur Ros, but still a solid listen.
|6||The Sleep Design|
All That Is Not Music Is Silence
Ooh La la
The title track is catchy as hell and one of my recent favorites. Although it's older
than what I usually listen to, I still love it.
When I Drifted I Heard a Faint Melody
Brilliant post-rock/ambient material. 4.2/5
|9||Nine Inch Nails|
Now that the hype has died down - It was almost exactly what I expected. An
entertaining listen, but not too much that really has stuck with me like past albums.
Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action
|11||Black Light Burns|
Industrial - 3.7/5
Could've been better - 3.5/5
RD's debut album is full of explosive alternative/indie songs with heavy electronic
influence. His tracks are catchy and unique. 4.4/5
Remember me? I'm the boy you used to love when you were 15.
Glad I stumbled upon this dude.
|16||The Calm Blue Sea|
The Calm Blue Sea
Post-rock - 3.6/5
This managed to make pop music sound interesting. 3.2/5
Indie/Ska - 3/5
|19||As Tall As Lions|
What an insanely awesome debut. Needs more attention - 4.6/5
Yeezus and ...Like Clockwork have been in the running so far for my AOTY. I
jammed QOTSA for so long and it finally started to get old, but I have had Yeezus
in my car stereo for about a month now. I drive every single day and now have
almost every line of every song memorized. It's something unique, as always,
coming from the cockiest bastard of the rap industry. I really wish Kanye made
shitty music so that I could hate him. On Yeezus, Kanye changes everything except
his lyrical approach. Justin Vernon a.k.a Bon Iver makes an excellent addition to
tracks like "I'm In It" and "Hold My Liquor". 4.9/5
