So Azealia Banks with that super hip hop album is #22, above Shabazz Palaces, and Young Fathers are not even mentioned….
A lot better!
Nehhh. The album of the week is Black Messiah. I really like Charli, but this is mehhh. We deserve more “Nuclear Seasons” and “Superlove” , and less “Boom Clap” and “Break the Rules”.
Even The Pinkprint, which I was expecting to suck, is a lot better. That Nicki album is fuil of surprises.
Since the ,moment it came out:
The War on Drugs – Lost in the Dream!!!!!!!!
I like this year a lot. And I found it amazing since I started listenning Lost in A Dream with “Under the Pressure”. From that moment (playing music in my MP3, I was waiting an elevator on the 14th floor, and that took like 15 minutes because the other one was broke. Yeah, I listenned that song twice), I knew this War on Drugs album was simply the best of 2014, and didn’t dissapoint me track after track, play after play.
The list is fine, not everything is fine, but it has some good surprises (Sharon Van Etten, Strand of Oaks, Angel Olsen) and a great top 3. I was expecting a little more love to this albums:
- Mac DeMarco – Salad Days,
- Ben Frost – A U R O R A,
- Andy Stott – Faith in Strangers
- Shabazz Palaces – Lese Majesty
- DJ Quik – Midnight Life
- Pharmakon – Bestial Burden
- Pallbearer – Foundations of Burden
- DJ Dodger Stadium – Friend of Mine
Man, that video. I’m not sure the odd effect is because that song is amazing or Angel Olsen is amazingly beautiful. The truth is I liked better “Windows” than any of the videos on the list this week, and the five videos are pretty good.
My total favorite of the week, and even maybe the year: Iceage’s “Against the Moon”.
I upvoted your comment just because “Hey Ya” is truly the song of the 00s.
Everytime Stereogum invites us to listen Taylor Swift’s music:
Oh, of course, that’s the reason…
And, yeah, those are tears of happiness.
