Find Me On:
Jesus, this song kicks ass.
Holy shit, yeah! That should def be top 30.
Just focus on the instrumental parts. They practically drown out the vocals anyway.
Have you guys seen Ian Cohen’s review of this? It’s so Cohenian. He gets like super defensive about the songs being covered here. It’s kind of ridiculous.
Oh fuck yeah! That Steven Wilson album is my number 2 this year. Pretty pumped to see another fan on here.
No way it’ll get close to the top but I had to rep my girl Janelle Monae for the album of the year. The Electric Lady is probably on my all-time list, actually.
Song: “The Stars (Are Out Tonight)” by Bowie.
Way to rep Foals, that one’s in my top ten
WHAAAAT? Maybe it’s because I was reluctant to get into them until the full-length, but that album sits at a tentative number three on my list. Every single song gets me in the feels, man. I respect your right to feel disappointed though.
All this has got to be on purpose by now. The Bret Easton Ellis American Psycho promo, the Black Skinhead video, now this… He’s gotta be messing with us. Oh, Kanye.
Scratch that, reverse it
I don’t think this really could have made it since it’s kind of an EP, but MAN are those Shields B-sides great.
I really love Sylvianbriar. Maybe I’m just a sucker for stylistic shifts, but to see another fresh form of this band is a testament to Barnes’ endless drive for composition.
Boy, this comment thread is pretty rough.
Lol what’s wrong with Ira Glass?
I feel like a lot of people will be sleeping on Youth Lagoon’s Wondrous Bughouse, but that album is one hell of a trip. Be on my list at least.
Why is this even a big deal? This is like at the top of every music blog right now. I don’t really care about this band.
“iconoclast orchestral twee folk-rocker-turned-experimental synth-pop provocateur at large”
So many adjectives.
Can we talk about how fucking great this week has been for music? AF, White Denim, Los Campesinos!, now this. Also, no mention of Yamantaka // Sonic Titan’s UZU? That album is a straight up beast.
So much energy! So excited to see her next month!
I agree that this is probably one of the better directions they could have taken after The Suburbs. I will say, though, that I love all the performances of “Here Comes the Night Time,” “We Exist,” and “Normal Person” from that video a bit better than their studio versions.
I’ve been waiting for you to show up.
I have Google play all access. It’s the bees knees.
I now know who’s gonna be on top of the male section of my “Indie Rock Crush” ballot this year.
