New Music (NSC)

There is always an overwhelming backlog of music to listen to at my house. I often don't get to half of what I discover (thank god for a good radio station nearby and Shazam of course) until years down the line sometimes. I know many of you think there isn't so much good stuff these days, so it's a good thing I'm here to disagree with you all, no?

But really, I just wanted to share a bit of good stuff from this year in the hopes that you'll do the same. I have discovered and come to love plenty from recommendations here, and there's no reason that can't continue for 3 more months. So, here are my favs. Sorry for any repeats (I can't remember the last time I posted about new listens).

Goat - Fuzzed in Europe. Live, tight, and sharp psych-afro beats with a lighter touch than what they've done before. Rhythmic.

Devotchka - The Night Falls Forever. Playful eastern european folk with grand strings and sometimes accordians.

Spiritualized - And Nothing Hurt. Epic, immense, overproduced (reminds me strongly of Manic Street Preachers 'This is My Truth Tell Me Yours') but still a great listen.

Kacey Musgraves - Golden Hour. psych-country with a bit of new age disco thrown in sometimes. I've enjoyed it more than I'd like to admit.

Beach House - 7. Dream pop at its best.

And my favorite by far, Ray Lamontagne - Part of the Light. A swirling mix of dreamy folk-rock-americana with some bar-room blues thrown in a little bit. Like the Band crossed with Tim Buckley. Very few albums can withstand the withering amount of spins I've given it and stay so good to me, but this one has done it. He sounds just like Elton John on Paper Man. Also, if you like it another album of his (Ouroborus) is great.

For older stuff, I've just gotten into Built to Spill, from the 90s, for the first time. It's almost like listening to Modest Mouse, whom I've loved for ages. I've also returned to the Velvet Underground (and Nico) again, as I do from time to time. This time I'm leaning hard on 1969 era stuff. The Velvets were so soooo such the masters of the rockin' repetitive jam, the one that you just don't get tired of. "I Can't Stand It," "What Goes On," and especially "Foggy Notion" are songs I've been playing very loud and on repeat. To mix it up, I've also been playing Nico's twin albums The Marble Index and Desertshore. Harrowing and not for the faint of heart, but always extremely rewarding.
