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.

Old Album Art

Title: Danny Brown – “Old””
Label: Fools Gold
Genre: Hip Hop
Description: It’s Danny Brown, the crack head, misogynistic, toothless Detroiter, killing it with his signature delivery and high-pitched yelp. I love this dude and you’ve been sleeping if you haven’t heard of him. Drug infused hysteria and a balance of comedy and real stuff over supreme beats. Side A is the regular jams, and Side B is the festival bangers.

Love's Crushing Diamond Album Art

Title: Mutual Benefit – “Love’s Crushing Diamond””
Label: Other Music
Genre: Baroque Folk Pop
Description: Mutual Benefit is the project of Jordan Lee, who makes lush, watery pop songs. First Bandcamp release to be named Best New Music by Pitchfork, so cool. These are undeniably pretty, like a little drop of dew glistening in the sun.

Pastel And Pass Out Album Art

Title: No Joy - “Pastel And Pass Out”
Label: Mexican Summer
Genre: Shoegaze
Description: This is a new 12” to coincide with their upcoming tour, following last springs “Wait to Pleasure.” These Montreal girls kill it, offering up shredding wall of noise shoegaze (2) to atmospheric guitar pop (3). Ugh this is just good.

Purgatory/Paradise Album Art

Title: Throwing Muses - “Purgatory/Paradise”
Label: Harper Collins/It Books
Genre: Indie Rock / College Rock
Description: This is a long, cluster of an album, but what would you expect after 10 years since their last release? There is some pretty slick stuff here, throwback to 90’s college rock sound, and none of the tracks are bad, it’s just a lot to wade through.

Beauty Meat/Language Juice 7 Album Art

Title: Sun Club – “Beauty Meat/Language Juice 7””
Label: Self-released
Genre: Indie Pop / Dance
Description: These guys from Baltimore threw down one of the sweetest, sweatiest, fun-frenzied dance parties of a set at Ceritano’s for us. If you weren’t there, you missed a fucking fantastic show. Now you know to go to Chuck’s shows and to listen to this.

Late Pass Album Art

Title: Jel - “Late Pass”
Label: Anticon
Genre: NCP / Sound Collage
Description: Jel is a co-founder of Anticon, but he also makes music with a bevy of samples over hip hop beats to drive the songs, and occasionally sings and raps. He is not great at rapping, but it works and there is enough in the production to keep things interesting.

Spaces Album Art

Title: Nils Frahm - "Spaces"
Label: Erased Tapes
Genre: NCP / Piano
Description: These are all live recordings of Nils Frahm, a classically trained pianist from Berlin. He has chops and his arrangements and meticulously slow pace in most songs provides a huge reward for a patient listener, while incorporating enough analog synths to keep it modern. As sonically pleasing as it gets. A lot are silent at the beginning and end for some time so be careful.

Live In San Francisco Album Art

Title: White Fence - “Live In San Francisco”
Label: Castle Face
Genre: Psychedelic Garage
Description: A live album of White Fence in San Francisco, as the title says. If you dig the other stuff coming out of Castle Face, pop this on.

Wed 21 Album Art

Title: Juana Molina - “Wed 21”
Label: Crammed Discs
Genre: Experimental Pop / Latin
Description: An excellent offering from Argentinean musician Juana Molina. A perfect balance between folk pop and playful electronic experimentation. The recordings of the lost daughter of Cat Power and Deerhoof, abandoned in La Boca and raised on Tango!

Heavy Minerals Album Art

Title: Knotted Cord - “Heavy Minerals”
Label: Mythical Carpet
Genre: Experimental Noise / Shoegaze
Description: The third album from the solo project of Rebecca Keehner of California. She plays everything (guitar, drums, bass, keyboards, vocals) and makes experimental noise rock with some shoegaze influences in the guitars and mostly indecipherable lyrics. Cool stuff.

Free Your Mind Album Art

Title: Cut Copy - “Free Your Mind”
Label: Domino
Genre: Indie Electronic
Description: The follow up to Grammy winning “Zonoscope” These are ultra uplifting tracks to dance your ass off to. Warm pleasant tones and bongos and synths and hand clapping and just an all around good time!

Wish Hotel Album Art

Title: Ducktails - “Wish Hotel”
Label: Domino
Genre: Indie Rock
Description: This is the solo project of Matt Mondanile, who happens to also play guitar in a little band called Real Estate. Similar to that sound, but with more of willingness to experiment. 2+3 are essentially same song. “Pay no attention to the things they say.”

Somewhere Between Here and Nowhere Album Art

Title: The Black Hollies - “Somewhere Between Here and Nowhere”
Label: Ernest Jenning Record Co.
Genre: Psychedelic Rock / 60's Garage
Description: The Black Hollies are the fur-lined hood on your favorite winter jacket, insulating you with its fuzzy goodness from the winter air. Propelled by Korg synths, moving just quick enough to avoid the onset of hypothermia and mental confusion.

Lanterns Album Art

Title: Son Lux - “Lanterns”
Label: Joyful Noise
Genre: Electronic Pop Rock / Indie Pop
Description: Ryan Lott combines a lot of electronic shindigs with indie pop that wants to be grandiose, settling somewhere between Sufjan Stevens and James Blake. Guests include The Antlers, Lily & Madeleine, My Brightest Diamond, and more.

Out of View Album Art

Title: The History of Apple Pie - “Out of View”
Label: Marshall Teller Records
Genre: Indie Rock
Description: This is a throwback to 90’s indie rock, with lots of lush guitars loaded with feedback and crunchy drums. Actually a romantic couple between guitarist Jerome Watson and vocalist Stephanie Min. Sugary guitar noise pop perfect for summer with Min’s candy sweet vocals.

EP Album Art

Title: Higgins Waterproof Black Magic Band - “EP”
Label: ZNA
Genre: Indie Rock
Description: This is a side band of Tunde Adebimpe of TV On The Radio. A pretty similar sound to them, especially since it’s the same vocalist. Post-punky indie rock with some reggae and dub elements.

Memorial Album Art

Title: Russian Circles - “Memorial”
Label: Sargent House
Genre: Post-Rock
Description: Russian Circles are superb at taking the expansiveness of post rock and filling that space with sometimes lush, gorgeous rock and at other times loud, bludgeoning, heavy rock. “Memorial” features Chelsea Wolfe, and the rest are sweet, sweet instrumentals.

Butter Knife Album Art

Title: Audacity - “Butter Knife”
Label: Suicide Squeeze
Genre: Garage Power Pop
Description: Garage rock that sometimes wants to be punk but you can tell these kids were raised on power pop like Weezer. Quick paced and a little bit goofy.

Double Cup Album Art

Title: DJ Rashad - “Double Cup”
Label: Hyperdub
Genre: RPM / Footwork
Description: Unfortunately, some of the best songs have FCC’s, but there is still a lot of good stuff here. Drug infused tracks to get you moving. The love for weed is evident. “Why you smoking reggies” hahahahahaha

Guilt Trips Album Art

Title: Ryan Hemsworth - “Guilt Trips”
Label: Last Gang Records
Genre: RPM / Genre Mashing
Description: This release goes all over the place. Genre mashing you could say. He is pretty damn good at it though, blending hip hop with dance and even a little r&b, but it never strays so far as to sound misguided or cliché.

Cave Jenny Album Art

Title: Like Like The The The Death - “Cave Jenny”
Label: Latest Flame Records
Genre: Post-Punk / Noise
Description: This mouthful of a band name, taken from a Silver Jews song, is some kids out of Milwaukee playing fast loud post-punk with some noise and hardcore elements in the mix. They have koozies with a picture of Jesus that says Like Like To To To Drink on them and I want one.

Cupid Deluxe Album Art

Title: Blood Orange - “Cupid Deluxe”
Label: Domino
Genre: Soulful Electropop
Description: Devonte Hynes used to be in Test Icicles, but now he’s making soulful, funky electropop under the Blood Orange moniker, and working with everyone from Clams Casino & David Longstreth of Dirty Projectors (4) to Despot (7). Think a slower paced Toro y Moi that’s not as dance-y with dashes of Prince.

Bitter Rivals Album Art

Title: Sleigh Bells - "Bitter Rivals
Label: Mom + Pop
Genre: Hardcore Indie Pop
Description: If you haven't heard them before, Sleigh Bells is the literal combination of a teen-pop singer and a HC guitarist. They play around with a lot of distortion and synthetic sounds. What makes this album unique for them? A more varied use of instruments and this time the girls is writing so the range fits her voice a little better.

Mug Museum Album Art

Title: Cate Le Bon – Mug Museum
Label: Wichita
Genre: Guitar Pop
Description: The Welsh guitarist returns for another album of guitar pop that checks boxes for me. Previously, she combined the pop vocal of Nico with the strange, bright wooziness of Pavement’s Brighten the Corners album, but this one ups her musical sophistication. There’s a bit of interplay here that at time recalls Tom Verlaine’s weaving guitar from Television and the forward bass playing of many more great post-punk bands, but neither is a truly dominating force, with Le Bon preferring the guidance of the rhythm guitar. Still, don’t let me suggest by these comparisons that this is an overwrought, largely inaccessible record; she’s really got great pop here.
