Swans To Be Kind
Linkin Park The Hunting Party
After the slightly lackluster Living Things and the disappointing remix album Recharged LP come back swinging with The Hunting Party. Like A Thousand Suns, LP takes a somewhat surprising left turn here churning out some of their heaviest material since their Hybrid Theory/Meteora days. What is surprising is how hungry these men sound for exploring 15+ years into their career. Ultimately a statement to being able to remain relevant as one of mainstream rock's elites.
Matter Teraphim
As everyone else has said, Matter's Teraphim revels in the tricks the many post-hardcore greats did back in the 2000's. So the sound might feel a tad bit outdated, but my God these guys have urgency and heart. That with the crisp production make Teraphim alone worth a spin or two.
SOHN Tremors
III Albums in, BBNG remain consistent in delivering exciting and original new jazz/post-bop
for a millennial generation. Although a much more mellow experience, III is arguably
their best work yet thanks to the trio pushing into different genres seamlessly (swing,
electronica, and ambient on top of their hip-hop based roots). Thus suggesting the trio
desire to remove the genre tags altogether. Easily will be a forerunner for best Jazz-based
albums of 2014.
Dirty Loops Loopified
Merkabah (PL) Moloch
Some of the most innovative post-hardcore/jazz/genre smashing i've heard in several years.
