Trouble Album Art

Title: Hospitality - "Trouble"
Label: Merge
Genre: Indie Rock / Indie Pop
Description: Vocalist Amber Papini, who sings of anxiety and unease a lot, leads this trio through well arranged pop rock that is sometimes accentuated with some synths, strings, and piano. This one’s like a good book that climaxes, with the last two tracks being the acoustic falling action.

Transgender Dysphoria Blues Album Art

Title: Against Me! - "Transgender Dysphoria Blues"
Label: Total Treble Music
Genre: Punk Rock
Description: Laura Jane Grace gives no cares and uses her observation skills to comment on men on their misogony and cover heavy stuff like death and our horrible perception of beauty and gender roles.

Habibi Album Art

Title: Habibi - "Habibi"”
Label: Burger Records
Genre: Garage Pop
Description: Four chicas out of NY playing short, sweet tunes about relationships mostly. Culturally enlightened by Nicky G and Shaun Z to the meaning of Habibi, which means beloved. This is as straightforward as it gets.

Hotel Valentine Album Art

Title: Cibo Matto - "Hotel Valentine"
Label: Chimera Music
Genre: Art Pop / Experimental
Description: A weird concept album about a romance set in a hotel full of ghosts where everybody is dancing to make up for the previous life they wasted. It has been 15 years since their last album and these girls still absolutely kill it and they are awesome. These songs are a blast and traverse musical ground across art pop, trip-hop, new wave, synthpop. It weird is weird exceptionally weird weird weird.

Bad Weed/But Still Weed Album Art

Title: Native America - "Bad Weed/But Still Weed"
Label: Self-Released
Genre: Garage Pop/Post Punk
Description: This budding band may have dirt weed but they got a sweet noisy garage pop sound that will make you feel good. They sing a lot about love and use tempo changes and shifting from hazy guitar to that crystalline sound to keep things interesting.

Dunes Album Art

Title: Gardens & Villa - "Dunes"
Label: Secretly Canadian
Genre: Electropop
Description: These dudes love the electric flute on this one. This is super bright and bubbly pop music with a cornucopia of sounds. Definitely got some 80’s vibes going in the synths. It’s like riding a bicycle through a field of wheat on a breezy autumn day.

Nina Album Art

Title: Xiu Xiu - "Nina"
Label: Graveface Records
Genre: Avant Experimental
Description: It is Xiu Xiu covering Nina Simone. It is making me super depressed. It is usually nothing more than piano, saxophone, minimal, yet spastic drums, some guitar and his breathy vocals. Some interesting interpretations for sure. You’ll probably really enjoy it or hate it.

Rave Tapes Album Art

Title: Mogwai – “Rave Tapes”
Label: Sub Pop
Genre: Post Rock
Description: These Glasgow guys show no sign of slowing on their 8th album. Beautifully rich and flowing instrumental rock with a much heavier dabbling into electronics than past work. An interchangeable front cover let’s you participate in art! Words on tracks 5, 8, and 10. Most of these tracks are pretty dang sweet, if I do say so.

Wig Out at Jagbags Album Art

Title: Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks - “Wig Out at Jagbags”
Label: Matador
Genre: Indie Rock
Description: Malkmus is still capable of writing some good songs, albeit a little goofier than his Pavement days. It’s hard for me to not like an album with tracks called cinnamon and lesbians, j smoov, and so on. If you like your music playful and fun, wig out to this.

Hi-Tech Boom Album Art

Title: Pow! - “Hi-Tech Boom”
Label: Castle Face
Genre: Garage Punk
Description: These guys play garage punk with balls to the wall deep synth bass with the volume cranked up! It’s fairly rough but still has a lot of pop, with some interesting percolating noises intermittent.

Join The Dots Album Art

Title: Toy - “Join The Dots”
Label: Heavenly Recordings
Genre: Psychedelic Rock
Description: The band says they prefer to play late at night to people in altered states, and it’s easy to see why, with their druggy synth progressions, love of Krautrock and driving rhythms, hazy vocals, and psych pop leanings. If you dig The Horrors, Tame Impala, etc. you’ll like this.

Forever Album Art

Title: Painted Palms - “Forever”
Label: Polyvinyl
Genre: Indie Pop
Description: A 21st century album created from Reese Donohue sending music over the interwebs to his pal and vocalist Chris Prudhomme. Blends of 60’s psych pop with modern electronic production with a lyricist who is too stuck in his head for his own good. I seemed to prefer the slower jams to the dancey ones.

I'm A Dreamer Album Art

Title: Josephine Foster - “I’m A Dreamer”
Label: Fire Records
Genre: Americana
Description: This one’s got that old timey feel to it, and Foster has a very nice voice to compliment that style. A good blend of old country, jazz, and blues for an exceptionally well arranged album. 10 is a cover of Vernon Duke, the lyrics to 6 come from a Rudyard Kipling poem.

Brothers and Sisters of the Eternal Son Album Art

Title: Damien Jurado - “Brothers and Sisters of the Eternal Son”
Label: Secretly Canadian
Genre: Folk Pop
Description: Soft-psych freak folk that generally stays pretty soft and employs vocal echoes a lot.

Farewell Young Lovers Album Art

Title: Crushed Stars - “Farewell Young Lovers”
Label: Simulacra Records
Genre: Soft Pop Rock
Description: The cover art, band and album name led me to believe this would suck giant balls, but it’s actually pretty decent. Quiet, quiet piano and guitars make this record so soft it’s like a baby’s butt resting on a cloud.

Gunther Doug EP Album Art

Title: Gunther Doug - “Gunther Doug EP”
Label: Rhed Roll Recordings
Genre: Garage Pop / Lo-fi
Description: Three college aged, goofball kids playing noisy, loud, rambunctious jams about getting drunk, getting stoned, and getting evicted. Took me a few listens before it grew on me. If your underestimating the goof, realize they sell a save the humanity shirt with a doodle of a half man half manatee.

R Plus Seven Album Art

Title: Oneohtrix Point Never - “R Plus Seven”
Label: Warp
Genre: Sound Collage / RPM
Description: Lots of fleeting ideas for a transient, glitchy, trippy, and just weird and random album. That isn’t to say this isn’t good because it is very much is. Love the artwork. Let the sounds envelop you as you drift into the abyss.

Beautiful Rewind Album Art

Title: Four Tet - “Beautiful Rewind”
Label: Text Records
Genre: Experimental / IDM
Description: It feels crazy to me that this is Kieran Hebden’s 7th studio album, but I guess when you consistently put out great music people forget about the time and space between albums. I don’t really feel like I need to say too much, as the music speaks for itself and if you are a fan, you’ll enjoy this.

Ideas+Drafts+Loops Album Art

Title: Flying Lotus - “Ideas+Drafts+Loops”
Label: Self-Released
Genre: Electronic / Trip-Hop / Left Field Hip Hop
Description: Fly Lo released this for free after amassing 300K followers on Twitter. That sounds like the kind of thing that would result in a loose album with lots of filler, but this truly has some great stuff. If you don’t like the track with Viktor Vaughn and Earl Sweatshirt you don’t like hip-hop. Guests Shabazz Palaces, Thundercat, Baths, Niki Randa, and more. As a fan, I’m so glad he released this project for our ears to hear. Great stuff.

Peace On Venus Album Art

Title: Bardo Pond - “Peace on Venus”
Label: Fire Records
Genre: Psych Rock/Post Rock/Space Rock
Description: 5 tracks that run for 39 minutes? That’s some epic stuff. Both the last tracks are over 10 minutes alone! As ten million pounds of sludge begins to bury you, the gorgeous flute of Isobel Sollenger swoops in to carry you away on a magic carpet! Yea, I really enjoyed this.

Wenu Wenu Album Art

Title: Omar Souleyman - “Wenu Wenu”
Label: Ribbon Music
Genre: Dabke / World
Description: Wedding performer extraordinaire Omar Souleyman has over 500 bootleg recordings, but this is hist first proper album, produced by Four Tet’s Kieran Hebden. It’s traditional line dancing Dabke music infused with western synthesizers and trance. The keyboarder plays like a madman! They be gettting down in Syria!

Live at the Cellar Door Album Art

Title: Neil Young – Live at the Cellar Door
Label: Reprise
Genre: Folk Rock
Description: High quality Neil Young live material from late 1970, around the time After the Gold Rush was released. Neil plays the guitar, the piano, and the harmonica, and then sings too! An especially interesting solo version of Cinnamon Girl is Winfield's album highlight, but fans of Neil Young and his early solo work will find many parts to be interesting here.

Because The Internet Album Art

Title: Childish Gambino - “Because The Internet”
Label: Glassnote Records
Genre: Hip Hop / Rap
Description: This is easily Donald Glover’s best musical output to date. He’s really honed in and found his voice, taking the best from “Camp” and “Royalty,” finally making a consistently great record that’s vulnerable and risky, exploring topics of depression, loneliness, and the loss of identity. He’s just doing him better than your doing you.

The Magnolia Electric Co. Album Art

Title: Songs: Ohia - “The Magnolia Electric Co.”
Label: Secretly Canadian
Genre: Indie Rock / Alt Country
Description: The 10th anniversary deluxe reissue of Jason Molina’s acclaimed 2003 album. It was so good he often recorded as The Magnolia Electric Co. after the albums release until his untimely death earlier this year of alcohol related organ failure. The songwriting is impeccable, the music just as good. Demos of all the tracks on disc 2, minus #4. Don’ t sleep on them. Genuine, heartbreaking, and honest. Simply great.

Sum/One Album Art

Title: bEEdEEgEE - “Sum/One”
Label: 4AD
Genre: Experimental Rock / Electronic
Description: This is Brian DeGraw of Gang Gang Dance’s first solo album. Not a huge sonic leap from that groups sound; still lots of percussion, house and dancefloor leanings, and synth soundscapes. Guests from Hot Chip (5) CSS (5,7) Gang Gang Dance (2) and Douglas Armour (3).

Singles Collection Volume 3 Album Art

Title: Thee Oh Sees - “Singles Collection Volume 3”
Label: Castle Face
Genre: Psychedelic Garage Rock
Description: mmmmmmmmm this is an oh so tasty collection of demos, rarities, live tracks, as well as covers of Sonic Youth (4) and Mr. Quintron (6) from the prolific Mr. Dwyer and Thee Oh Sees. Peep the inner sleeve for more info on the tracks.

Pop Obskura Album Art

Title: The Low Frequency in Stereo - “Pop Obskura”
Label: Long Branch Records
Genre: Experimental Pop Rock
Description: Of all the bands that supposedly sound like Stereolab that come across my desk, this is the only one that actually lives up to that comparison. These Norwegian’s are like a mixture of them and The Sugarcubes, with singsong and layered vocals, organs, and analog synths. Part of the “lo-fi post-rock” scene, so they say. Whew, this is surprisingly pretty good.

Oblivion Hymns Album Art

Title: Hammock – “Oblivion Hymns”
Label: Hammock Music
Genre: Ambient / Post Rock
Description: Well, this is about as breathtakingly beautiful as music can get. Just do yourself a favor and listen to this. These are orchestral works of pure splendor.

Nightmare Ending Album Art

Title: Eluvium – “Nightmare Ending”
Label: Temporary Residence
Genre: Experimental Ambient / Post Rock
Description: This is very much like that Hammock album, with no real standouts, as it is all about one product that flows seamlessly and really should be digested together. A decent amount of piano as well.

Small Sound EP Album Art

Title: Tennis - “Small Sound EP”
Label: Communion Music
Genre: Indie Pop
Description: The husband-wife duo offering up a short little EP before their new record in 2014. They’ve jumped from Fat Possum, and this feels less lo-fi with more of a mainstream pop appeal, but it still has all that charm.

Drown Out Album Art

Title: Daedelus - “Drown Out”
Label: Anticon
Genre: RPM / Electronic
Description: For his 10th album he’s moved over to Anticon, and this supposedly sublimated 90’s west coast gangster rap, rave, classical, jazz, footwork, juke and a lot more into its sound. You can apparently even hear the sound of eyes drying, whatever that means. A bit pompous but still good.

The Shaw Tapes: Live In Detroit 5/27/88 Album Art

Title: The Gories - “The Shaw Tapes: Live In Detroit 5/27/88”
Label: Third Man Records
Genre: Garage Rock / Lo-fi
Description: Jack White seems determined to bring to light forgotten bands of the past, and here he presents The Gories. It’s gritty, lo-fi as hell, house party thrashing music! Covers of John Lee Hooker (5) The Stooges (6) and Willie Dixon (13). A lot of them have lots of chatter at the end of the songs.

Friendly Unit Creation Kit Album Art

Title: Sonic Graffiti - “Friendly Unit Creation Kit”
Label: Self-released
Genre: Garage Rock
Description: This reminds me of that Orwells EP that is in rotation right now. They can rock out pretty hard, but also temper back (5). Pretty straightforward garage rock, a little anthemic at times, but they also add some flavor, like the harmonica in 2.

Sister Faith Album Art

Title: Coliseum - “Sister Faith”
Label: Temporary Residence
Genre: Rock / Punk
Description: Fourth album, first with new bassist Kayhan Vaziri. An fairly unyielding pace throughout except for 4, covering weighty topics like death to lighter ones like punk wizards. Guests from Sebadoh, Boris, Jawbox, and more.
