We at WUVT have decided to revive our New Music page. We will be making monthly posts on this section of the website with a selection of our new adds, along with the shorter reviews written by our music staff.
Also - check in for occasional full-length album reviews, written by our Woove staff in collaboration with our music staff.
Label: jagjaguwar Reviewed by: Harrison Grinnan Good shit. Post-punk, krautrock. I prefer this over their first album, back when they were called Viet Cong.
Carnival Youth - Propeller
Local Natives - Sunlit Youth
Label: Loma Vista Reviewed by: Harrison Grinnan Better than I expected from them, honestly.
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.
Thirty days ago today, some actual live humans started to play this music on WUVT FM 90.7.
Megafauna - Welcome Home
Label: Pirate Press Reviewed by: Harrison Grinnan Austin psych rock. Fun stuff
Crystal Castles - Amnesty (I)
Label: Fiction Reviewed by: Harrison Grinnan Apparently people like this band
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.
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
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.
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.
