Good shit. Post-punk, krautrock. I prefer this over their first album, back when they were called Viet Cong.

Better than I expected from them, honestly.

patientness

Yohuna - Patientness

Label: Orchid Tapes
Reviewed by: Harrison Grinnan
The first thing orchid tapes has ever sent us! It's a little slow and less weird than most of their stuff but still fun if your favorite slowdive album is souvlaki but you wish it was slower and made by a girl alone in her bedroom.

theveils

The Veils - Total Depravity

Label: Nettwerk
Reviewed by: Laura Wollinsky
FUUUUUUUUUUCCCCCCCCKKKKKK this rules. Going into this I kind of hated Harrison for giving it to me, but it all worked out in the end. With Total Depravity, The Veils blend ominous tones with catchy melodies and smart lyrics sure to give your séance that extra flare. This album was produced by El-P (Run the Jewels), which is random but also makes complete sense. You should play this.

sheermag

SHEER MAG - II 7"

Label: Wilsuns RC
Genre: Rock 'n' Roll
Reviewed by: Steve Ibanez
So much grit and filth. Sheer Mag are back with another four song shredder where everything is coated in distortion and hair metal licks sound sick. Music like this just isn’t made anymore but Sheer Mag revives the style with no mercy and the attitude of real rock and rollers. They also got one of the most badass looking bandcamps I’ve ever seen. Keep an eye out for these peeps in the future.

Aero Flynn

Aero Flynn - Aero Flynn

Label: Ooh La La
Genre: Folk/Ambient Pop
Reviewed by: Steve Ibanez
Originating out of the same tightknit Wisconsin music scene that birthed Bon Iver, Josh Scott aka Aero Flynn makes delicate and hazy pop songs that indicate his Bon Iver relations. Electronics are sprinkled in that remind me a lot of Radiohead. This is thought to be a record that he created to deal with depression and an autoimmune disease.Justin Vernon of Bon Iver produces.

toroymoi

Toro Y Moi - What For?

Label: Carpark
Genre: Electro Infused Guitar Pop
Reviewed by: Pierce Sprague
I went to a Toro concert once. It was fun because his songs were so energetic, but Chaz just kind of stood behind his keys the whole time and sang indifferently. What For? is kind of like that, but this time, the sound guys put his mic too far away and he’s too lazy to move it. Don’t be dissuaded by the uninspired singles, though (2,4,9)—he still shows his creativity on this album, you just have to dig a little bit to find it.
