New Releases 2013 - No Records Released Before 2013 - Page 18

Darkside: Psychic

An amazing effort to combine house music with the artier sides of pop and rock. A very engaging and surprising listen.

 

Melt-Banana: Fetch

A crazily upbeat and hyperactive hardcore punk/noise rock record--probably the most focused and mature thing Melt-Banana has done in their impressive (and longer than you might realize) career. No one else sounds remotely close to this band--vocalist Yasuko might be the most unique 'singer' in modern rock with her chirped/screamed/rapped delivery (all in English), and Agata is easily one of the most inventive guitarists working today. I dare you not to fall in love with this album.

I listened to about half of the Darkside album late last night and it reminded me of why I got my LCD-2s. It seemed beautiful and fresh and mysterious.

I get tired of electronic music very fast. From time to time I get high rated electronic music albums but after a couple of listenings never return back to them.

 

But this Psychic album is different ( I want to return to it) mainly  because electronic elements are not overwhelming as usual or not formulaic as usual. Couple of songs sound like a blues record. Rhythm is coherent and there is consistency through the whole album that is why it ends kind of fast despite there are 8 songs.

Some of you may have listened to Mezzanine on cd however this will be first time available since a limited release on vinyl in 1998

OK so it's technically not a new release, but up until now (to the best of my knowledge) it was only made officially available via a small CD-R 'pressing.' 2013 sees this dark neofolk cornerstone get a much deserved wider release on both CD and vinyl--indeed, I'd go so far as to call it *the* masterpiece of this small, mostly European genre. Gorgeous, acoustic, purely instrumental modern Norwegian folk (maybe more influenced by black metal than by actual folk)--you've got no excuse to not pick this up if medieval-tinged melancholy is your cup of tea. Perfect music for the colder weather. 

 

EDIT: Oh yeah, and the new Danny Brown album is *fantastic.* Can't believe I've neglected to mention it until now. Hip-hop album of the year? I'd say chances are good!

No mention yet of The Civil Wars' self-titled album from a few months ago? Just got it recently and it's amazing. New Arcade Fire out this week too.

I don't even own a turntable but I want to buy that! Mezzanine was the very first CD that I ever bought with my own money. I was a teenager (17) when it came out and I thought it was the coolest thing that I'd ever heard. And speaking of Massive Attack, Goldfrapp put out a new album recently too.

I have waited YEARS for this.

Light Folds by The Seaman and The Tattered Sail

 

This one is of insane quantity (674.11 minutes!) but also the quality of the compostions is outstanding imo. Highly recommended if you're into experimental-ish / ambient-ish goodness.

Recorded in digital and recorded again, all analogue.  Had to send back to amazon, a little too noisy and the second side was pressed very slightly off center.  Maybe the replacement will be better.  Good sound, tho'.

The new Arcade Fire and Oneohtrix Point Never are both quite good!

I'm very much liking Arcade Fire now.  Not their best work, but still very good.

A no holds-barred and cheesy-as-hell prog-rock master-stroke. I find a lot of modern progressive rock to be very off-putting, but this one works for me, and I can't quite put my finger on why. I think maybe because it's willing to play with your heart as much as it is your head--it lacks the sterility (or what I perceive to be the sterility) of bands like Porcupine Tree. It gets a lot of comparisons to Gentle Giant's work, and I can certainly see the similarities. Really worth your time.

Hi Morbid I have a copy of Mezzanine on vinyl (I bought 2nd hand) however I think it must be a bootleg because the cd sounds much better - like you I'm looking forward to this release. When blue lines on vinyl was released last year a hi def digital download was also released.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. - The Speed Of Things (2013)

 

The second album from this duo. I would describe it as breezy indie pop with lots of synths.
