Bonus 1 Sentence Reviews

Since all of that forced indie music required me to take occasional breaks to cleanse my pallet with my own personal indie music tastes, here are: 

Margot & The Nuclear So And So’s - Slingshot To Heaven: Everything I had hoped for from this fantastic indie/folk rock band, with some definite stand-out vocals. 8.5/10

The Antlers - Familiars: Shhhh, this technically isn’t out till June, but I found a leak and oh my goodness it’s absolute bliss and the best non-rap album I’ve heard this year other than Beck’s gem. 9.5/10

"Best Albums Of 2014 So Far" 1 Sentence Reviews

So after long deliberation and countless hours of my life I have returned from my journey into the heart of hipsterdom and listened to these 7 album. In lue of doing full reviews and taking forever to finish them, here are 1 sentence reviews of the “best albums of 2014 so far.”

image

Future Islands - Singles: Absolutely spectacular synth-driven indie rock with some of the most earnest, heart-felt vocals I’ve heard in quite a while. 8.5/10 

Key Track: “Seasons (Waiting On You)”

Sun Kil Moon - Benji: “Personal” does not always equal “enjoyable to listen to” or “good” music, I can’t really express how much I didn’t like this album. 2/10 

Key Track: N/A

image

Cloud Nothings - Here And Nowhere Else: One of the more engaging, upbeat, off-kilter, garage rock albums I’ve heard in a minute, but with some flaws and far too short. 8/10 

Key Track: “Psychic Trauma”

The War On Drugs - Lost In The Dream: Very 80s sounding and kind of boring, so all in all, nothing terribly special. 5/10 

Key Track: “Red Eyes”

image

St. Vincent - St. Vincent: Interesting, innovative, and challenging record that I wasn’t always totally taken with, but is still worth a listen. 8/10 

Key Track: “Huey Newton”

Real Estate - Atlas: One of those albums that just kind of goes in one ear and out the other, so it’s not bad, just boring. 4/10 

Key Track: N/A 

image

Mac DeMarco - Salad Days: Genuinely enjoyable album with some fantastic lazy guitars and quality vocals, but the 2nd half kind of drags. 7/10 

Key Track: “Let My Baby Stay”

So that’s it. Some of the stuff was pretty darn good and surprisingly fresh, while some was, as expected, boring hipster drivel. The lesson here, obviously, is to listen to albums yourself and form your own opinions on today’s music, and most of all, try new things because you might just like them!

Mama I made it!
