Atlas Sound "Logos"

Look, you’re busy. I’m busy. I’ve got to worry about the economy, and figure out how I’m going to hide from mandatory Swine Flu inoculations. I don’t even have time to sue the government, though I suspect I’d like to.

I have a stack of new records to listen to and then write 5,000 words each on why you should: A. Like them. B. Loathe them. C. Not give a shit. Since ‘C’ is the most likely scenario (is not giving a shit a scenario?) I’ve decided to boil down several into 140 words or less. That way you can copy and paste on your Twitter feed. Feel free to take credit for any and all… I’ll be in hiding and they’ll take you away instead. Sucker.

Atlas Sound “Logos”

Deerhunter leader new solo. The cover says much. A shirtless Cox face bathed in heavenly light. Music sounds like that light.

Blk Jks “After Robots”

My God this is such a beautiful record. It leaves me speechless. A collision of African music and Echo and The Bunnymen “Porcupine.”

Rain Machine “Rain Machine”

TV On The Radio is dense and relentless. TOTR’s Malone sets out to explore aspects of their sound. A companion piece to band if you will.

Built To Spill “There Is No Enemy”

They once meant much. They can again, and for the best of reasons. The songs of course and Martsch guitar. Splendid, unexpected.

F*ck Buttons “Tarot Sport”

I watched my nephew playing with a finger painting app the other day. There should be an app for this too.

Remember the band America? Yeah well now Sub Pop has their own version. Like whipped tofu marsh mellows.

Spiral Stairs “The Real Feel”

Lacking Malkmus gift for word play Pavement member however marks first time I’ve heard the word diphthong in song. When’s Pavement reunion?

Drummer “Feel Good Together”

Five Ohio drummers led by Black Keys’ Carney do, what else, sunny day 8 track, top down, power pop rawk. If Keys are Whiskey, this is soda.

The Avett Brothers “I And Love And You”

When I read of the “death of the album” and then hear records like this I wonder to who’s death their referring. This is very much alive.

Alice In Chains “Black Gives Way To Blue

Their “Back In Black” if you will. Where AC/DC had a wake, A In C are still at the funeral. That said, I dig it.
