Jinja Safari - Locked by Land (2011) Thursday, May 30, 2013 |


One of my favorite albums of the last decade, just a very solid summer time classic.

Geese - Geese EP Wednesday, May 29, 2013 |






Three original songs by Geese, and three remixes, albeit none of them sounding even remotely alike. Genre skipping; and a lot of really good experimental electronic work.

It's kind of beautiful though so WHATEVER.

Merchant Ships - For Cameron (2011) |



A fucking great record from the label that brought you Snowing and shit. Catchy lyrics about some divorced family or something. Has one of the most depressing tracks I've ever heard in "Sleep Patterns." If you buy a copy of it from the label's site, they send you a starburst. Fuck yeah.

Mister Lonely - Patagonia (2012) Saturday, May 25, 2013 |


Mister Lonely has been exploding onto the California post-rock scene with the release of their newest EP, Patagonia. Abrasive, upfront, and vauguely reminiscent of such projects as No Ease and Swans, Mister Lonely hails from the lonely regions of music they constrain to their own. Entrancing, subliminal, and dangerous, this EP is not to be missed.

One of the best albums ever made. No review needed, this is just to let you know that this is a special version of this album; a 24 bit 96 KHz rip of the original vinyl print limited to 4000 copies worldwide.

It sounds awesome.

Guardian Alien - See the World Given to a One Love Entity (2012) |


This album is ridiculous. 37 minutes long, 1 song. And it's absolutely fantastic. Just weird and fantastic.

The Venetia Fair - The Venetia Fair Presents: The Circus (2009) |


This album is a playful assortment of sounds that match the title of the record. Stronger tracks include "Because You're Lonely" and "The Ringleader". If you enjoy that modern emo sound, mixed with a bit of pop punk, listen to this fucking band.

Mark Kozelek - The Finally LP (2008) Tuesday, May 21, 2013 |

It is known to fans of Mark Kozelek's music that he is as skilled an interpreter as he is a songwriter. After cutting the final Red House Painters album in 1998, he has since used his own name as a means to release the occasional odd cover album between larger projects. 2008's The Finally LP is among the finest and most humble of these yet, presenting an accessible array of bittersweet yet amicable acoustic covers that span the breadth of Kozelek's unique taste and influence. Known for drastically reconfiguring the songs of Bon Scott, Isaac Brock and Ace Frehley in the past, the singer does not limit himself here either: while stripping down Will Oldham's grimy "New Partner" to a beautifully finger-picked folk song, he does the exact opposite to the likes of Low's "Lazy", metamorphosing their classic slowcore dirge into an upbeat country ditty. Same goes for Husker Du's "Celebrated Summer", which appears as an open-tune mood piece in the vein of Nick Drake. Meanwhile, "If You Want Blood" is an alternate version of an AC/DC cover that appeared on Kozelek's 2001 collection What's Next to The Moon. This one is worth a spin for admirers of Mark Kozelek or good folk music in general, as well as anyone looking for some interesting cover versions.

Wilco - Kicking Television: Live in Chicago (2010) |


I'm going to forgo any wordiness and simply come clean: this is one of my favorite albums. It's a live album which somehow elevated the artists' work even further. It speaks for itself, and how beautifully does it do so.

Mostly Other People Do the Killing - Slippery Rock! (2012) Saturday, May 18, 2013 |



Before I get into the album, let me introduce myself really quick. I’m !!e7ZYZi1k7FE Raskolnikov, and !0MTMwDpCZo hresvelgr found me on /mu/ and I’ve been posting on /mu/ for about 2 or 3 years. I’m a big fan of jazz, post-rock, and lots of /mu/core type of stuff. I’ll post lots of jazz usually but I could come here with any sort of album.



Don’t be fooled by the album cover-the music sounds nothing like it. This is probably the best jazz release of 2012, and my personal favorite. From Hearts Content, the first track, MOPDtK goes into a rock beat with brilliant saxophone riffs and trumpet falsettos. President Polk is another standout, where the instruments go into altissimo ranges while the drummer shifts from style to style. Speaking of the drummer, that’s probably the most interesting thing about this album. It’s worth it alone to listen to this album based on the staggering amount of styles the drummer effortlessly moves through, from funk to jazz to rock. I also feel that this album is a great introduction into more eclectic jazz as it’s somewhat accessible.

Scrawl - Velvet Hammer (1993) |

You've never heard of this album. By that, I mean that no one knows this album. For some reason or another Scrawl never showed up on the map in any major way, but despite this, it's one of the best albums I've heard. Scrawl, sounding like a fusion of earlier Sonic Youth and Pavement, while taking their music in a very personal direction. The album's lyricism remains realistic and never looks to the grandiose, while at the same time remaining strangely poignant. It's emotional, it's lo-fi, and it's good.

Dual Ported - RAM (2013) Friday, May 17, 2013 |







The new album by THIS band (If I speak their name the censorbots will come and find the album; same reason for the custom album art) is actually both refreshing and surprising. I think it was a common notion that this album was both highly anticipated in addition to highly guarded against. The fears surrounding this LP were justified; coming off of a movie soundtrack that was uninteresting, and the follow-up to an album that fell flat, this LP was in a position to shine. And it does. Well, sort of. Whether you like this album or not comes down to whether you have a notion of the aesthetic the album goes for. Essentially, it's the soundtrack for an 80s movie, but every one of them. Action, romance, drama, comedy; all of this stuff has a place. That said, if you do not enjoy that aesthetic this album will not be as good for you. Just as a fact. A line in the third song on the album struck me, the speaker says they want a sound of each decade up to the 70/80s and then a sound of the future. That's what this album is, in a nutshell. It's a throwback to the heydays of old, with sounds of the future as well. If that's your bag, this is your album of the year; if not, it's worth a listen.
