Sextile Push
There might not be anything revolutionary when it comes to this synth and dance punk record, but the breath of styles and ideas helps carry it. Whether that comes from the hardcore breaks on ?Crassy Mel?, on top of the heavy synthesizer used. Or the big beat laced ?New York? you will get a wide array of hardcore electronics and experimental punk styles.
Corinne Bailey Rae Black Rainbows
There are definitely a lot of risks Corinne takes on her new album. For one she takes a leap into various shades of art pop and jazz music. Whether that comes from straight vocal jazz ballads like ?Peach Velvet Sky? or with avant-grade saxophone and drums on ?Black Rainbow?. But not only that she also grabs at some heavy-sounding garage rock revival like ?Erasure? and ?New York Transit Queen?. With that, she also pulls off some expansive and encompassing straight art pop and rock tracks like on ?Earthlings?. However, with all this experimentation and risk comes a potpourri effect making the listening experience really disjointed at points. St
Ruby Haunt Between Heavens
Victor Pakpour and Wyatt Ininns continue down their moody dream pop and synthpop aesthetic that they have been building upon since their 2015 debut. In many ways, their music is a comfort album. It?s a light and airy set of tracks backed by some moody and ?edgy? slowcore lyrics. My biggest problem is that their sound is starting to run its course after 8 consecutive albums of basically the same thing. I wish they would expand more on each release, but hey they are extremely consistent and that?s something.
Shakey Graves Movie of the Week
It?s definitely a solid indie folk and folk pop record. There are a lot of memorable tracks on here, however, the biggest distraction for me is the heavy Beck influence on many of these tracks. It can almost be so distracting that I have forgotten that I?m not listening to Beck.
World's End Girlfriend Resistance & The Blessing
It?s very rare for a nearly 2 and a half hour album to be as captivating and intense of a listen. Well, this new album from a Japanese-based composer and producer creates a challenging yet enchanting album from front to back that ebbs and flows through various forms of neoclassical, post-rock, sound collage, and breakcore. It?s hard to fully digest this album in one listen and in many ways, this album is crafted to be digestible in multiple sittings. However, even then this record is a perfect thing to put on when you want a theatrical and enchanting album to listen to. My biggest highlight comes at the end in which they manipulate the classi
Alan Palomo World of Hassle
The Neon Indian comes through with a new pseudonym in which he drastically shifts his sound outside his more traditional chillwave style for a much heavier influence from 80s sophisti-pop and house music (as well as city pop in tracks like ?La madrileņa?). In many ways, if you are at all a fan of Ginger Root, then you will feel right at home. The airy and heavy saxophone on every track balances out the rhythmic and hypnotic house grooves that back each track. On top of that the range of vocals from Alan adds even more groove to this already groovy album. I can understand where there is hate with an album like this, it?s very campy and has a l
Baroness Stone
The long-standing stoner and sludge metal outfit somewhat bounced back with their sixth album after an abysmal 2019 stoner rock album. They return to their heavy psychedelic metal vibes here and it works out decently well. Plus the small inclusion on various tracks of post-hardcore I think adds a whole lot of punch that the band really has not had in a long time. I?m still not the biggest fan of the band overall but the simplistic use of sludge and stoner metal guitar riffs makes for a pleasant listening experience.
