New In Rotation (9-5-17)
LCD Soundsystem – american dream
After their flamboyant departure from the music industry in 2011, James Murphy and co. announced their return a few years later. They’ve played a few shows since coming back, headlining large festivals, and they topped it off with one of the most gorgeous records of the year so far in american dream.
Grizzly Bear – Painted Ruins
After releasing three critically acclaimed records prior to this one, the indie rock stalwarts now return five years after the amazing Shields to give us another record. While not their most exciting or brilliant work, it does its best to live up to the greatness achieved in the past.
Zola Jesus – Okovi
The synth pop star is back for her fifth LP since her debut in 2009, The Spoils, and many believe it to be her best ever project receiving critical acclaim.
Mogwai – Every Country’s Sun
A post rock group similar to bands like This Will Destroy You, Mogwai is back for their
Deerhoof – Mountain Moves
A band known for its high volume of albums, Deerhoof is here once again about a year after its 2016 record, The Magic, saturated in features from various artists.
1. Dent May – Across The Multiverse
There are moments during this album where Dent May brings this Brian Wilson esque vocal style to his songs. Dent May brings a style easy listening to his new album.
2. Trailer Trash Tracys – Althaea
Trailer Trash Tracys are continually trying to hone their craft of experimental dream pop/rock. They make use of instruments not typical of dream pop, and it usually works well.
3. Girl Ray – Earl Grey
This power girl trio reminds of indie music leaders, Frankie Cosmos, and even a little Girlpool. All the way through, it’s a pleasant listen thatgrooves like Tennis at times.
4. The War On Drugs – A Deeper Understanding
The War On Drugs are the project of Adam Granduciel, one of the leaders in indie rock today. The band’s consistency is hardly matched by anyone in music, and after a stellar record three years ago, they’ve followed it up with a worthy successor.
5. King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard with Mild High Club – Sketches of Brunswick East
King Gizzard & The Wizard Lizard have released yet another album with strong influences of jazz fusion. What makes this new album unique is that every song features Mild High Club. Before 2017 began, they announced four albums to come. This is number three.
