Ahh yes, it is a new year! This means all new music and I am making sure to catch it all! So far, I have 6 “radical” tracks and one “radical” album.
A new feature on here is posts called “Radical!” meaning that it has been added to the list of best tracks or albums. (Like Pitchfork’s “Best New Music” or Stereogum’s “Heavy Rotation”.)So you’ll probably see a lot of these. Right now I’m adding 6 songs and one album, so here ya go!
RADICAL TRACKS, DAWG
Best Coast – “When You Wake Up”
The Decemberists – “Don’t Carry It All”
Ducktails – “Killin’ The Vibe (Feat. Panda Bear)”
Lykke Li – “I Follow Rivers”
Smith Westerns – “All Die Young”
Tennis – “Take Me Somewhere”
RADICAL ALBUM, YO
Smith Westerns – “Dye It Blonde”
This album won me over with glossy guitar hooks and it’s sugary sweet pop sound. It really takes you on a journey through the perspective of a teenager in the summer, going across the US with a bunch of friends, having a blast. If you are a teenager or want to feel like one or you are a fan of old glam rock (T.Rex, David Bowie), buy this album immediately.
Weekend, Imagine Pt. 3, All Die Young, End of the Night, Only One, Dye the World
That was RADICAL! HAVE A GREAT DAY
