Tacos Needs Jams: Sputstyle

hi
1Heroin Party
Summer Made Me Blue; Summer Gave Me The Sky


its the new year and im hopping on the list bandwagon so rec me anything you think id fux with and ill rate/blurb review it by the end of the year guaranteed yo.

i'll take 2 recs from everyone
2Wild Beasts
Present Tense


dbizzles

3.7

First rec on the clipboard and its a nice one. In a sea of been there/done that indie pop music, “Present Tense” was able to stick out by making good use of percussion and 2 very unique vocalists. Tracks bounced between a deep soulful baritone to a higher pitched, almost effeminate falsetto. While the electronic and traditional instrumentation is adequate and work well enough together here, I believe the dynamic of the two leads is the album’s most powerful weapon.
3A Textbook Tragedy
A Partial Dialogue Between Ghost and Pri


dbizzles

3.7

Bizzle fo shizzle’s second rec and its some angry hxc/grind kids who also like jazz jams. Ferocious mathy riffs and noodling come together in a 30 or so minute display of aggression. Vocalist is solid and his screechy wails really compliment “unpredictable” style the band is trying to pull off here. The album doesn't attempt too much to separate itself from its counterparts, but when it’s done this well, who really cares.

3.8/5

A really cool mix of folk, electronic pop, and orchestral elements. Kishi Bashi have made a very colorful and fun album here. The very eccentric vocal performance really complimented the fast paced and whimsical tracks. I feel the album overall is very successful and has nothing inherently wrong with it, but quite simply put: some songs just didn't grab me as much as others [The first 2, they set the bar pretty high imo].

Nowhere


AdolfChrist

4.1

A dreamy and relaxed piece of electronic music. The album feels vast but also quite intimate. “Nowhere” is an apt name as the atmosphere created here feels very similar to just that, the middle of nowhere. An endless grey lake. The record slowly shifts to a more light hearted tone from the end of “Wander” and onward but the change seems to feel more like an artificial dream given the context of the first half. A really great listen, certainly a little short but tis the nature of EPs.
14Anchoress
Anchoress is Ruining My Life


clavier

3.9

Hot dog this album kicked butt. The overall sound of the album remained consistent but there were a good amount of influences in there too. The band knows how to riff and jam out but also make some more unique tracks like ‘Fir’ and ‘All Colours.’ “Anchoress is ruining my life” was like a weird mix of Iron Chic and Touche Amore and Botch (keep in mind i'm bad at comparisons but whatever, this was pretty darn good). Great vocals.

Words That Go Unspoken...


hellscythe

3.7

Immature chuckles I get from the band name aside, this was a fun yet eerie trip down proggy blackened death metal lane. To put it quite simply, “words” is just a very competently made extreme metal album. It tick marks a lot of boxes for traditionalists while also changing things up by delivering some progressive clean vocal passages. The dark and grotesque nature of the album never wanes thanks to a very impressive performance by vocalist/riff wizard Jason Mendonça and his lyrical themes. The heavy passages can be a bit familiar but are well done. The more experimental sections is where “words” shines for me though.

3.5

Wow, very pleasantly surprised how much I liked this. “Into One Name” feels very serene and the smooth as silk production certainly helps. I’m not a fan of the “mumbly” lyric delivery used on some tracks or the autotune vocal aesthetic but I believe A: the album was just short enough so that I didn't end up finding it too annoying and B: it actually fit in nicely with a few tracks (the opener “Rust” and “Can I Know” especially) and C: Everything felt genuine.

In This World


hansoloshotfirst

3.6

A math rock album with a japanese twist. It’s pretty by the books for the genre but I think i've said before, if it’s done well I usually don't care. “In This World’ feels like sticking your head out the window while taking a drive by the beach. It’s smooth when it needs to be but usually fast paced and more abrasive. My biggest take away here though was the exceptional drumming, it was awesome.

Do you like prog? Good. Cause glaswegians are gonna prog yer face off in this 4 track, multi-instrumental, renaissance-fair vibin’ musical journey of neat-o-ness. Okay, I embellished a bit. The album is actually pretty tame in the wank department and the wide array of instrumentation only help separate it from your usual 4 man cheesy prog outfit. “Severance” seems to take in a good deal of post rock influence, making it a pretty accessible record to boot. Starts very strong with ‘orwellian’ but slightly wanes as it progresses (granted it’s still a great time).

3.8

Oh man, this along with Disintegration are records I should have jammed ages ago. “The Holy Bible” seems to be a very context sensitive album. At the time of its release, the lyrical themes were a bit taboo. Seeing an album go head first into these topics so passionately must have been huge. James delivers a great vocal performance and a barrage of tasty basslines and punky guitar licks makes “The Holy Bible” an album that shouldn't be missed for fans of punky rock and roll.
