Sufjan Stevens The Age of Adz
It's easy to exaggerate the absurdity of what Sufjan Stevens has done with The Age of Adz. Cast him as the iconoclast - what is structure, what is convention, what is a song - but the ultimate question everyone seemed to ask was: "Has he gone mad?" The evidence, at first glance, seemed to indicate quite overwhelmingly that he had come unglued, that every inch of him was bursting out onto this empty canvas and painting it with the most surreal sketches of a man not quite losing his mind but more lost in it than we'd ever realize. But to cast him as such a symbol - as distant, untouchable, different, like the age old caricature of a reclusive artist - is unfaithful to the most remarkable thing he achieves.

What shines through the chants, synths and crescendos, is the enormous amount of himself that Sufjan has poured into The Age of Adz and that is an investment that he has made of his own accord and by his own observation. And, at least to me, that is the sign of a man not lost but rather more in tune with himself than we ever gave him credit for. Most importantly, it is a stunningly personal contribution. And despite the storm and swell of everything around him, it all still rests on the shoulders of our omniscient narrator: the colossal clutter filtered into ideas and themes as human and emotional as anything he wrote while parading as the cherub-voiced folk romantic. For all that has been made of Sufjan Stevens the personality, for every step that has been taken to distance this album as some demented portrait, what must not get lost in translation is just how strikingly intimate The Age of Adz manages to be.

Manchester Orchestra I'm Like a Virgin Losing a Child
Manchester Orchestra Let My Pride Be What's Left Behind EP/DVD
A step-up in the songwriting ability that remained inconsistent on their debut record, original songs like I Can Feel a Hot One and I Was a Lid are far more mature (and better) tracks than any off I'm Like a Virgin Losing a Child. Accompanied by excellent live versions of Wolves at Night (played acoustically) and Sleeper 1972, this EP is a sign of progress for Manchester Orchestra and hopefully an indication of good things to come from Hull and co.

The Gaslight Anthem American Slang
Brian Fallon seems like the type of guy who'd get the wind to stop as he lights his cigarette, striking his match on a parking meter, while his other hand wraps itself around the hip of some blonde-haired honey wearing bright red lipstick and a polka dot dress. Though his stories are deeply rooted in surreal retro-styled imagery and further substantiated by a band taking a far more bluesier approach than where they last left off, he never quite devolves into the self-aggrandizing hedonism that much of the generation he romanticizes was all about. He's too retrospectively aware for that. American Slang is, perhaps rather obviously, a character study of the American dream. It's about American girls who "want every last little light in New York city", about how "the clothes I wore just don't fit my soul anymore", and most honestly, "how he just doesn't miss her". It's a record as genuine as you could expect from the guys who brought you The '59 Sound and it's a worthy follow up in every way, made exceptional by the outstanding blue-collar charisma that Fallon exudes with every gruff note.

Thee Oh Sees Help
In the same vein as 'The Masters Bedroom Is Worth Spending A Night In', Thee Oh Sees pack some hefty 60s psychedelic undertones into their jangly lo-fi and while this record certainly seems more focused than the last, they haven't sacrificed any of that vigour that made the clatter of the music so strangely enjoyable. Plus, killer album art.

A great, if at times forgettable, solo effort from the Sigur Ros frontman that channels the pop sensibilities which flourished where his band last left off and expands them into a blurry, whimsical world of primary colours and overdrawn enunciation; tailor made for the easily excitable but also one that loses its glow upon further visits.

MGMT Congratulations
Fun, 60's psych-pop that shouldn't come as a huge surprise to anyone who made it into the second half of Oracular Spectacular without rerouting back to Time to Pretend and Kids over and over again. It's hopelessly indulgent but that's sort of the point; MGMT have something to prove. The lack of singles is testament enough of the distaste for commercial success the band were more than vocal about and as such, Congratulations is a 'take us seriously' record from a band who made their mark by being a little less serious than everyone else at the time.

Sleepyhead is an amazing track. It's the sort of synth-heavy, electro-pop goodness that puts a smile on your face every single time it comes on. It's that hole in one that every band dreams of hitting and on Passion Pit's debut EP no less. Unfortunately, the 5 other tracks on the EP are hardly up to par.

Justin Vernon does his best to save a record (Husks and Shells is one of the best displays of the beauty of his vocals) suffering from slow pace and instrumental experimentation that at times seems aimless and unnecessary (Seeplymouth, Dote, Mbira in the Morass) and at others very well executed (Island, IS, Still).
