This has recently become my favourite Fahey album. So brilliant.

Helvetia - Dromomania (2015)
I must have first heard Helvetia around 2008 with their sophomore album The Acrobats, and subsequently their debut The Clever North Wind. While each album had a few standout tracks, they failed to make much of an impression on me and I didn't follow their career beyond that. Fast forward 7 years and 5 albums later, Dromomania entered my radar and I added it to my 2015 queue. After noticing a few good tracks while shuffling this giant queue, I decided to give the album a spin while driving on Thanksgiving day and it's been in rotation since. The album as a whole seems more present than the two I was familiar with, and already has more stand-outs than those two combined. Still relatively lo-fi, but their early albums were somewhat slowcore and this feels more active. It makes me wonder, have I missed other Helvetia albums that are worth a listen?

To top it off, today I realized there is a deluxe edition of the album with a bonus album - a "lost album" that was recorded shortly after the release of the previous album, lost in a computer meltdown and eventually recovered. It feels just a solid as the "main" album - so that's great.

I've decided this is the best Dylan album. Underrated as hell

Britney Spears - Blackout (2007)

I like my pop music slathered in sweat and spit.

Haven't listened to it in a while.
So groovy. Easily one of their best.

Always liked the song Birthday Cake so I decided to find the band that did the song. Best Engrish hands down. Really cool experimental record. Some of it reminds me of like Portishead type of stuff. Then there's some more punk or rock type of songs. It's really just an interesting listen.

I'll always remember these guys from their appearance on Buffy. Sugar Water is the bee's knees.

I've been really digging this lately:


Destroyer - Poison Season

Not nearly as good as Kaputt (which I think will go down as his magnum opus), but still really really great. I'd put it up there with Trouble In Dreams.
