New Releases 2013 - No Records Released Before 2013 - Page 17

post #241 of 297

I'm hooked to this new release from Goldfrapp...so lush and beautiful. Alison's vocals and the music arrangements convey a certain level of intimacy and poignancy through each song so delicately. Loving the noirish album cover to the poetic lyrics...mesmerizing and dark.

Not too many interesting albums this year. They’re alright. Many different genres:

I really recommend Fallulah's album. 

Fallulah – Escapism 

 

Oh Land – Wish Bone

 

Senses Fail – Renacer

 

Frankmusik – Between

 

Paramore – Self-Titled

 

Skillet – Rise

 

Eyes Set To Kill – Masks

 

Tonight Alive – The Other Side

 

 

Still waiting for La Roux’s sophomore album. I hope it’ll be released in December.

Between this and the new Gorguts release I'm in technical death metal heaven. Or hell. Whatever.

Pretty solid album by KOL.  If you like the previous couple albums, good chance you'll like this one.  If you like classic rock or southern rock, this also might be worth a listen.

I have been enjoying this. Simple, but right in JJ wheelhouse.

Not sure what I was expecting with this release, but it's very straight rock n roll--and it's good. The convulsive brit-sneer-rock of their early music has been replaced with a more self-assured and polished sound.  The boys live in LA (!) now and it may be leaving it's imprint on the band--not a bad thing. Give this a serious listen.

Really liking this.  Best album they've done since "Favorite Worst Nightmare".  Nice melodies and really cool direction/progression on this one.

Bill Callahan - Dream River

 

 

Smog aka Bill Callahan recently released this album. It is kind of a  lo-fi rock indie/underground genre. Excellent songwriter IMO and maybe something to appreciate while enjoying a cold beer of your own choice while trying to figure it all out or just indulge in his words and mixture of decades or musical references..

I have the "audiophile" mix myself, but it is hardly audiophile; the remastered PHM  in Redbook sounds better.  This guy agrees and has measurements to back it up:

Haim - Days Are Gone

 

 

Quote:
The three long-haired sisters of L.A.'s Haim look as if they're from the 1960s, crib lyrics from the 1970s and prize musical tricks from the 1980s. Yet the trio's major-label debut, "Days Are Gone," may be the freshest-sounding album you'll hear all year. How does that work? 

 

 

I really like the first song from the album Calling. There is some energy in the singing and really cool catchy rhythm. There is something special in how the three sisters work with familiar material of 80-s and turn it in 2013 into something fresh sounding.

 

Live version of the song Falling ( which is very different from studio version)

I'm enjoying this a lot--they have a very 70’s rock/singer-songwriter feel. The album is short and sweet.

I've been listening to the recent Bull of Heaven releases so that you don't have to! Although, even if you've long since dismissed BoH as being a joke band, you really should check out some of their latest stuff--not only is it surprisingly listenable and engaging considering the sort of stuff they usually put out, but it's actually compelling music on its own, taken independently of the remainder of the band's discography. Indeed, for the last two years they've been putting out some pretty great stuff, and I don't use the word great loosely. (I don't think.) Anyways, here are what I think to be their two most worthwhile releases this year so far:

 

Extinctus Amabitur Idem

 

Ex Umbra in Solem

 

Both are lengthy, slow-evolving pieces, though both were built in very different ways. Extinctus Amabitur Idem is pure plunderphonics, taking bits and pieces of other music (maybe Bull of Heaven's own stuff, I don't really know) and then re-purposing it, transforming it into a very hypnotic, percussion heavy work. Ex Umbra in Solem re-explores the spacey jazz-rock of what's probably their most 'acclaimed' work from people who take their music seriously, 261: A Feeling for the Order Lying Behind the Appearance.

 

Recently they've been doing a lot of 'un-numbered' works, and I think it's really been doing them some good to get away from the very minimalist, very lengthy, very droney stuff that's long been their calling card. I don't think this is at all signaling a new direction for the band, as just recently they've picked up their regular numbered series again and look to be moving ahead with that at a good clip, but be sure to grab these and give them a listen. Both are free from Bull of Heaven's Facebook page, though you'll have to look at a cached version from early September to grab the link for Extinctus Amabitur Idem. Enjoy!

Grouplove - "Spreading Rumours"  (I have been temporarily banned to post images on HF) or maybe I can't see them, so that's why..

 

Okay, the song titled "Raspberry" does very much sound like the Pixies and maybe one of their best tracks in decades.. I mean the Pixies..
