Featured Release

aaa

Beach House – 7
Genre: Dream Pop / Neo-Psychedelica
Label: Sub Pop

The ethereal, sensual nature felt in many of 7‘s tracks is certifiable Beach House, with the darker, moodier tones complementing Victoria Legrand’s ephemeral vocals as she maneuvers in and out of each channel. The record is also masterful in its juxtaposition: black and white, bright and dim, glamour vs.  simplicity. Swells of hazy distortion, pulsating percussion, and captivating Aphex Twin-meets-My Bloody Valentine guitars and synths coalesce for a seamless listen from cinematic start to alluring finish. Beach House are renowned for their consistency, and the additional brushstrokes incorporated into 7 help elevate their dream pop sensibilities to even greater heights.

Especially excited about Beach House and Loreena McKennitt.

The Beach House is great, a return to form no less. Aidan Moffat & RM Hubbert's 'Here Lies the Body' is very very strong too, that Scottish brogue spoken word delivery over some varied and frequently darn beautiful instrumental backing. Check it.

Good to see Little Junior are at least being open about their latent Lacey tendencies

>> What in the honest to fuck is 'Tenderpunk'?

I have no idea but saw the term in the press release and felt that it needed to be included for funsies.

I'll work on getting some of those other albums added to the entry.

Lucid

Found the Kozelek to be very pleasing as someone who's tentative on his late-career style. Don't sleep on it.

Voivod
05.12.18
Checked The Body, Loreena Mckennitt, and Ry Cooder, all good stuff.

Dewinged

Omg I wanna punch that Little Junior cover so hard.
