Top 40 for 11.25.12

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012 by Eric Loose

There’s a few new, exciting additions to our Top 40 Albums this week! The Deftones’ Koi No Yokan has been making an impression on many listeners, and Mogwai’s album A Wrenched Virile Lore (put together by all-around music genius Tim Hecker) makes its debut in our top 10. Perhaps no jump is as significant as Andy Stott though, whose Luxury Problems earns a second spot place on the list this week. (more…)

How To Dress Well – Total Loss [2012, Acéphale]

Monday, September 24th, 2012 by Eric Loose

There’s a moment on the vigorous “& It Was You” when it all becomes inescapably clear: Krell has officially transcended all those pesky comparisons that have simultaneously crippled his How To Dress Well project as well as catapulted it into indie-fame. His peers like Justin Vernon (another beautiful falsetto voice shrouded amid a blanket of fog) and Abel Tesfaye (an Rn’B aficionado who isn’t afraid to use old-school hip-hop beats to give his choruses a little more punch) and even dubstep-hero Burial are all touchstones for breakthrough album Love Remains, and rightly so. That being said, it’s heartening that Total Loss is a more distinctive step past comparisons into territory all his own. (more…)

Spokes – Everyone I Ever Met

Sunday, February 13th, 2011 by Eric Loose

It doesn’t take long to figure out that Everyone I Ever Met is orchestrated in a different vein than Spokes’ rookie EP, People Like People Like You. Risks have been taken, and mind you, these aren’t “risks” like we normally think of them. People Like People Like You was a fairly conventional post-rock EP, but this description belies its beauty. Poor Spokes watched from outside the lines as less-worthy post-rockers enjoyed oodles more fame than they. With soaring violins and condensed song lengths, Spokes crafted a mellifluous Shortcut to Enjoying Post-Rock. Somehow the Englishmen crammed the magic of every spellbinding post-rock record you’ve heard into a delightfully accessible package. Three years later, Spokes sound bent on transforming this winning formula, and unexpectedly it pays off. (more…)
