Q2 2014

Favorites from the past few months.
Sacred White Noise

Extremely solid black metal album with some interesting guitar leads. See 'The
Bright White Nothing At the End of the Tunnel.'
2Ben Frost

Strikingly reminiscent of how I felt watching Blade Runner for the 1st time.
3Casualties of Cool
Casualties of Cool

Devin Townsend does ambient bluegrass/country. Most Sputters probably know
plenty about this by now so no need for further explanation.
4Todd Terje
It's Album Time

Pure fun.
5How to Dress Well
What Is This Heart?

Always been a fan of this dude and man does he know how to make pop music
La Gargola

Best thing they've done in a LONG TIME. This album is probably a tad over-hyped
but still worth plenty of the praise its received.

Experimental hip-hop made accessible and fun. Check out my review and definitely
give this a listen.
Once More 'Round the Sun

Let's face it, Mastodon will never be who they were on Leviathan again. That said,
the songwriting has been refined considerably since The Hunter dropped a couple
years ago and the choruses here give this plenty of replay value. Mastodon
continues to deliver consistently great mainstream metal. Also, riffs.
9Every Time I Die
From Parts Unknown

Another exceptionally tight release from ETID. Keith's vocal performance is a major
highlight and the production from Converge's Kurt Ballou puts this in a league of it's
own. This might climb into my top ten of '14 before the year is over.
Ocean Death

This EP contains some of what I think are Baths best material so far. Very
impressed and hoping for a new LP very soon.

Standard fare BBNG still makes for a solid jazz experience.
12Save Us From the Archon

Had never heard anything prior to this but gotta say this is pretty awesome.
13Mimicking Birds

Some beautifully arranged folk tunes.
14The Antlers

Familiars isin't nearly the flop that some people think it is but it is a definitely a step
down from their previous work.
Melting Sun

Trumps the hell out of Shelter.
16Hiss Tracts
Shortwave Nights

Pretty interesting Godspeed! esque post rock.
The Serpent and the Sphere

Curious to see if this is as bad as people say it is.
Roads to the North

I'm of the somewhat minority opinion that Kentucky was pretty good and being from
the state I could definitely vibe with the influences pouring into that record.
