Incendiary Change The Way You Think About Pain
Ain't nothing revolutionary, but this latest record sees Incendiary nail their formula of tough and pissed-off NYHC. Breakdowns are more neck-breaking than ever, shouty punchlines are even more leftist-anthemic ("Every window deserves a brick" lmfao yes boiz), and riffs do not hesitate to be even more pummeling while still retaining melodic qualities - "Host/Parasite" being the prime example of transitioning stupidly heavy verse riff into post-hxc chorus riff. Also it's very, very New York.
Arlo Parks My Soft Machine
I found her 2021 record to be at times beautifully vapid, and this one is less beautiful and more vapid - the Bridgers feat being the prime example of that inoffensive af sound.
The Field Infinite Moment
Infinite Moment is typical The Field, in that the balance his beats'n'loops strike between the dancefloor and the bedroom is top-notch. Nevertheless, it also stands out in his discography, as it's the one The Field whose atmospheric aspect is the most prominent. It's constantly spiralling.
Susanne Sundfor Blomí
Typically Susanne this record: most of it is absolutely gorgeous, and the filler really is boring. Good thing she fills most of her record with sublime songs carried by her sublime voice. Would have nevertheless preferred a more climactic way to end this record, as the last couple of tunes really are dragging this more than it should.
Overmono Good Lies
Especially given how bomb-ass-thicc the singles were, I expected this to be my dance AOTY. Turns out it?s not the case: tunes like "So U Kno", "Good Lies", and "Is U" big and joyous and induce some well-deserved ass-shaking. imma basic bitch and I would have preferred an album full of these easy?n?pulsing vibes, and they basically are only present in the singles. Not all not-bouncy tracks are yawn-inducing though: "Arla Fearn" does a great job at providing that dark, urban future garage vibe. Most of the second half thus feels like a drag. Eh. Will jam their EPs again then.
Blindfolded and Led to the Woods Rejecting Obliteration
Kinky band name dives further into their disso tech death(core). Like in the previous record, it's when the band goes for calm soundscapes right after adorning their death metal with other metal subgenres elements that their formula works the best. Still, I didn't find here anything as gruesomely dreamy as "Rorschach and Delirium".
Iress Solace
15 minutes of Jespercore: heavy yet ethereal post-dreamgazecore!!!

  • someone it's often strange to be in a position of having heard the amount of recording an average musician creates in a lifetime, and still be done with barely a percentage of a full discography
