New Releases 2013 - No Records Released Before 2013 - Page 19

post #271 of 297

I'm not very good at describing albums.

 

Icon for Hire: Ariel Bloomer is cool. She can sing and rap.

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 75

Volcano + The Sea: Free Dominguez is also cool. So is this album. It's alternative rock and electronic.

 

 

Light as a Feather: Do you like IDM, ambient, pianos, and rain? You'll probably like this album.

 

 

The Circle and the Blue Door: Do you like heavy psychedelic with female vocals that never left the 60s? You'll probably like this then.

 

Thy Kingdom Scum: Do you like blasting stoner/sludge with a japanese guy yelling at you the whole time? You'll probably like this.

 

Monomyth: Do you like instrumental psychadelic/space/whathaveyou rock? You'll probably like this.

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

 

Do they sound as fast and without limitations as Dale speeds?..:-)  Maybe not so much.. But their music tuned by the sound of a decade that passed by very swiftly is kind of refreshing and conservative at the same time.

Thanks for these; got new additions to my library!

This was released a few months ago but I just picked it up.  New York post-punk band "Beach Fossils".  This is their 2nd album called "Clash the Truth".  I hear a bit of Interpol in the guitars but the vocals sound more like Yuck or Jesus and Mary Chain.

Autechre - Exai (2CD/4LP)

Subrosa: More Constant Than The Gods

 

Loving this, and you will too, if you're into stoner/sludge/doom metal with a distinct post-rock sensibility and a bit of added flair, courtesy of the female vocals and dual electric violins. And no, it doesn't come across as gimmicky!

Dexys : One Day I'm Going To Soar

 

 

If anyone out here remembers Dexys Midnight Runners and maybe in particular their unique "80's' hit which I won't name since DMR and in particular Kevin Rowland were much more than that!

 

Well, for anyone new to this. the Dexys' Midnight Runners and/or Kevin Rowland may have been one of the most important bands(rock/indie/bla bla) in the UK in the 80's and this very recent 2013 release may introduce a new band and a whole different perspective if you look beyond and backwards! For the old gunners, lovely to see them back..

North Mississippi Allstars - World Boogie Is Coming (2013)

 

A return to their earlier form. This album includes a guest appearance by some guy named Robert Plant among others.

 

If you like that lo-fi Mississippi Blues Boogie, it's a no-brainer.

Billy Joe Armstrong & Norah Jones - Foreverly (2013)

 

Yup. Billy Joe and Norah Jones have released an album of Everly Brothers covers. Need I say more?

What do you think? This album probably or most certainly will not enter my personal top 20 albums of 2013! It is as usual of course a very subjective opinion and this album has indeed received some very decent reviews but I will stick with the old Elvis. I just don't hope that he will or even consider releasing an album together with Diana, although I do respect their happiness..

To be honest, I haven't spent enough time with it yet to issue my final opinion. I think it is probably better than most of Elvis' recent albums, but it's not going to be a classic. I have found some tracks I like.

 

In my opinion, there are three Elvis Costello albums that any serious music listener should have. They are:

 

My Aim Is True (1977 UK) (1978 US)

Armed Forces (1979)

Imperial Bedroom (1982)

 

I will give an honorable mention to This Year's Model (1978)

 

Those first three I listed, in my opinion, are nearly flawless and absolutely essential. That is very high praise. Most artists never record a single album that I would fit into that category, but Elvis Costello has recorded three of them. The downside is, those three were all recorded by 1982. I'm sure some folks will differ, but I don't consider anything that he's recorded after 1982 to be as good as those three.

I agree that all four of those albums are essential and brilliantly written and performed. I have to add Spike, which puts a coda on his early work and hints at new directions. Deep Dark Truthful Mirror is a standout, but most of the other material is solid.

All EC's first eight albums are in my book pure classics and with "Punch The Clock" as the final of these eight releases. This album contains "Shipbuilding" that I personally find to contain the best lyrics Mr. Costello ever has written. His political reflection of the Falkland War in 1982 etc. The marvelous Robert Wyatt also released a wonderful version of this song in 1982 around a year before "Punch The Clock" was released with Elvis on backing vocals. I do remember this very well but not much else..
