Anybody else heard the Foals record? I was a little disappointed. To me, Holy Fire was a near perfect album, and while I’m okay with a rock band going more ‘raw,’ many of the songs on What Went Down sound a little overly simplistic or unfinished. There are still some great tunes though, like “Mountain at my Gates.”

It annoys me that some reviewers still complain that Beach House hasn’t changed up their sound. I’m pretty sure they’ve said from the beginning that they’re not interested in evolving. So when I approach a BH record I just think “How are the songs?” And they are always so beautiful and graceful.
I also think August is the perfect time to release a BH record, at least in southern Virginia. The stifling humidity and heat perfectly complement this sound, the gorgeous, paced, emotional detail.

My pick goes to M3LLI55X, because I had a hard time getting into LP1, but I’ve had this EP o. Repeat since it came out. Now I need to listen to LP1 again and feel ashamed that I let it fall by the wayside. I mean, seriously, “in time” alone gives this project some major cred. Not to mention that I spend my days humming “hold that pose for me” under my breath.

Don’t forget Protomartyr! One of the best working post-punk bands right now and they have an upcoming album too.

Offensive? Is this supposed to be hashtag problematic? I think it’s hilarious. Josh Groban is a funny dude.

The whole interview isn’t out yet. Magazines usually release selected quotes from the interviews before they’re fully released.

“Gimme All Your Love” is a masterpiece and one of the best songs of the year.

I am still very confused as to what week this refers to. It doesn’t help that the list at the bottom still says “Albums of note out today.”

I love “Run Away With Me” a lot, but the rest of the singles so far have been decent at best.

“Fired Up” can bring me to tears, so there’s that.

Man, I made the Spoon comparison in the stream thread and got downvoted. :(

Damn, this shit is hot. Sam Herring is one of the coolest dudes in the game.

That’s because Being There is one of the best goddamn rock records of the 90’s.

I’m gonna comment again and say: this album is like Wilco doing Spoon.

“Impossible Germany” is arguably the band’s masterpiece (one of ’em at least)

I’m so excited this exists. And I think it’s really good too! Excited to see some of the rougher edges, similar to the Tweedy album. (Granted, this all comes from a huge Wilco fan who will defend Sky Blue Sky hardcore even.)
“You Satellite” is incredible.
