Well, another 10 years have gone by which means it’s time for another music list, and possibly some reflection on the last 10 years. I’ve got the music thing covered, but I’m not going to waste time on reflection. The artwork links to the album review (or the band page in the absence of a […]

50-31 | 30-11 | 10-1 10. Weyes Blood – Titanic Rising [Official Site] // [Spotify] “A lot’s gonna change in your lifetime / try to leave it all behind / in your lifetime / let me change my words / show me where it hurts.” If there’s a thesis statement for Titanic Rising, this closing sentiment to opener “A […]

50-31 | 30-11 | 10-1 30. clipping. – There Existed an Addiction to Blood [Official Site] // [Spotify] Drink it up. Blood is both healer and reaper in clipping.’s horrorcore art piece, a masterstroke which arranges stretched skin and body parts into fragments of stories, quickening our pulses with the adrenaline while never letting us off the hook for enjoying […]

50-31 | 30-11 | 10-1 50. Bon Iver – i,i [Official site] // [Spotify] Bon Iver decides to look outward now, a nice evolution from the introverted and elusive nature of 22, A Million. His latest is a bit more inviting and less fragmented, while maintaining the unique sounds of Million. More than ever, Justin Vernon sounds more open here, crooning of […]

I’ve also watched as my personal musical tastes have slowly separated from the Sputnik collective (they were never entirely in line to begin with), and that is no where […]

50-31 | 30-11 | 10-1 10. Hop Along – Bark Your Head Off, Dog [Official Site] // [Spotify] // [Facebook] Frances Quinlan is a rare breed. Few vocalists can turn a melody in as many directions, alternating between raspy falsetto and out-of-breath shouts in a way that sounds both melodically pleasing and emotionally poignant. But we already knew that […]

50-31 | 30-11 | 10-1 30. Amorphis – Queen of Time [Official Site] // [Spotify] // [Facebook] There are seemingly as many highlights on Queen of Time as there are years Amorphis have been active, but these iconic Finns should be cheered for augmenting their folk and progressive leanings while adhering to their trademark blueprint. Founding bassist Olli-Pekka Laine […]

50-31 | 30-11 | 10-1 50. Cursive – Vitriola [Official Site] // [Spotify] // [Facebook] It’s probably been since 2006’s The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me since I’ve heard a band this accurately summarize a total loss of hope and innocence. The overarching theme damns both politics and society, deeming both “fucked” as guitar chords slash away […]
