New Music (Whatchu listening to)
I am starting this blog so I don't overlook any recent musical gems I may have missed out on. Last year I discovered Alt-J through the blogs and I hoping to find another great album like that one. Hopefully one of the albums I introduce here will be something you like too.
There have been a lot of Kick-ass individual songs released this year but I am focusing on albums for now; mostly because there too many individual songs to mention here. If you like a song listed below and have Spotify, I wholeheartedly recommend listening to the entire album there.
Janelle Monae- The Electric lady This is bit on the pop-side of things but pretty much brilliant all the way through. Super collaborations and an interesting concept make this album great.
Queens of the Stone Age- ...Like Clockwork If you like classic hard rock (AC/DC, Led Zep) this is a great album. It has the right amount of strut, grungy grease, and hook for this kind of music.
Flume- Flume A solid electronica album all the way through. The songs with and without vocals are equally good.
Boards of Canada- Tomorrow's Harvest Either you like this kind of atmospheric building instrumental music or you do not. If you like it, this album is amazing.
Neko Case- The Worse Things Get, The More I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You An amazing lyricist and songwriter. Although a bit depressing, the Production and Guest appearances make this album exceptional.
I guess video embedding is still glitchy; follow Video links instead.
