I'm a bit behind on my music listening. I'll just get that out of the way straight from the get-go. I'm also a bit late on this post, but this year has been unlike any other in my life - refer to episodes 01 to 03 of the podcast for that - so I think I get a bit of slack. In any case, I've put together a small list of what albums I've been into thus far. I've still got a whole bunch that I need to get through so it's not exactly an indication of what will be on my year end, "Best of" list but I imagine a good deal of them will make it. Without further ado, here's what I've been listening to so far:
This list is also in no particular order, so don't worry about that yet!
|Perfect Pussy - Say Yes To Love|
I suppose we'll just get the elephant in the room out of the way. I wish I could talk about this album with my students, or recommend it, because I know they don't listen to stuff like this ever. The name alone is something I don't want to try and explain to anyone here. If I were able to recommend it, I'd tell them that "Interference Fits" is one of the best songs of the year.
|Dum Dum Girls - Too True|
|Kishi Bashi - Lighght|
|Cibo Matto - Hotel Valentine|
|Cloud Nothings - Here and Nowhere Else|
|The Horrors - Luminous|
|Lykke Li - I Never Learn|
|Mac DeMarco - Salad Days|
|Jack White - Lazaretto|
|Real Estate - Atlas|
|The War On Drugs - Lost In The Dream|
|St. Vincent - St. Vincent|
|Strand Of Oaks - Heal|
|tUnE-yArDs - Nikki Nack|
|FKA twigs - LP1|
|Wye Oak - Shriek|
|Parquet Courts - Sunbathing Animal|
|Macross 82-99 - Sailorwave|
That should be enough to carry you over for a while. I've got a pile of my own to get through still.
Until next time!
