Listen/Watch: El Guincho – “Parte Virtual” (Live at Le Poisson Rouge) [2017]

I’m working on MANY recap lists for the 2010s and one of them is the incredibly daunting “Best Concerts of the 2010s”. Pretty much every single concert I’ve ever attended was during this decade, save for Barenaked Ladies in 2007, … Continue reading

Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith – “An Intention” [2017]

Recommended Albums: May 2017

Welcome to May 2017’s edition of Recommended Albums, or as I’ve heard some like to call it, “Every Single Album Released From That Month, You No-Taste, Indecisive Loser.” Well, May 2017 isn’t going to repair my reputation of supporting every … Continue reading

Domenique Dumont – “+371” [2017]

Here’s a groovy new song from Domenique Dumont, the enigmatic group that put out one of my favorite records of 2015, Comme Ça. It’s a bit more laid back compared to their already lounge-friendly music from two years ago, fit for … Continue reading

Hundred Waters – “Particle” [2017]

One of my favorite bands from the last five years, Hundred Waters, look like they have a new album on the way with the release of song “Particle,” by far the most straightforward and obtusely bass-heavy song they’ve ever done. Nicole … Continue reading

Kirin J. Callinan – “S.A.D.” [2017]

I doubt you’ll find a song from 2017 with a chorus as monstrous as this. Or a song with as many key changes. Can’t wait for the Kirin J. Callinan album, coming out June 9 on Terrible Records.

Jacaszek – “Soft Music” [2017]

This sounds pretty similar to how I’ve been feeling for the past few weeks. Familiar sounds and feelings on the other side of frosted glass, just out of reach. Things are jarred out of place and disorganized. Like trying to … Continue reading

Jacques Greene – “Afterglow” [2017]

Hotness alert! The new Jacques Greene album is blazin’ hot. This song has been out since 2016, but it’s the penultimate track on Feel Infinite and brings back spicy energy to help the record go out with a bang. Gotta love … Continue reading

Hatsune Miku + Laurel Halo – “As You Wish”

It doesn’t feel right that Hatsune Miku has made possibly my favorite song of the year so far, but stranger things have happened. That’s the attitude I’m going to approach all things with from now on: nothing is weird, because everything … Continue reading
