Highly enjoyable 80's pop-styled album, with some great songs and an enjoyable attention to period detail. Not as good as some make it out to be but still a good record.

Twin Shadow: Forget < PopMatters

For example, this review is very hyperbolic.

James Blake - S/T (2011)

Dubstep meets Blue-Eyed Soul, and such a meeting of ideas is quite interesting to say the least. It has the makings of a classic...but I'm probably jumping the gun a bit.

My goodness you can't turn on the radio overhere without hearing that song of his.
I really don't like it. It's just some words, a piano and some freaky bass line.
It's not really music to my ears, but probably that's just me

So lately I've been gettin my Doomtree on. It all started with this album:


Dessa - Badly Broken Code

Dessa is a member of the Doomtree collective, and put out this solo album in January 2010. Someone here started a thread on her and I decided to check out the album. Didn't really take to it at first, but here lately I've been in a bit of a hip-hop mood and gave it another go. I just didn't realize the first time I listened to this album how impressive it is lyrically. And I love how she goes from spoken word to singing so effortlessly.
This song is my personal favorite:

And here's one of the singles from the album:



Taking to this album so well led to checking out some Doomtree albums. This one is their first studio album:

Doomtree - False Hopes
You won't be able to listen to this without wanting to move. Not dance, just move; nod your head, tap your foot...something. Check it:

That sounds amazing.

Thelonious Monk - Monk's Dream







Monk's playing style was really ahead of his time, well ahead of any time for that matter. It's also interesting noting clear Ellington influences, despite the fact that his playing style is so different. The same goes for Mingus too. In many ways, it seems like the bepop style that Monk and Mingus worked off of was the result of taking Ellington's ideas and bringing them to a small group, seeing what new ideas would come out of the mix, like scientists putting a different enzyme into the same substrate (I think).

My favorite track: Body and Soul

Explosions in the Sky - How Strange, Innocence
Pretty good Post-Rock album. It is pretty generic, and it does drag on a bit, but A Song for Our Fathers and Time Stops are such great songs. Very nice relaxing album all in all.
