To zone out to this album is like nothing else. killed a titanite demon by juking and sniping with bow. I was wrong! Kind of shocking, honestly. But man, does it slap. album. “Johnny and Mary” had its moment for me when I was in college. ~~ Sharon Van Etten knows how to put aching into song. ~~ ~~ The careening guitar coalescing with red-hot sax, the chemistry between the hand drummer and the kit drummer, the showmanship of the trio of singers, the bond between the whole band. Also when I was on a megabus at 7:00am listening to this album, I saw an advertisement for something insane along the highway. Wait a sec….. Vampire Weekend? What can I say? It sounds nothing like that. Dark and dusty, damp and moldy, breakneck and decrepit. Only acceptance until the storm passes will suffice. Underneath the old clock tower lies a pitch-black portal to another dimension. It’s quite the transportive album, handing you the invitation on the album opener and leading you through these heavens as it unfolds from there. The last The Knife album unfortunately hasn’t stuck with me, but this has. It’s as if she plucked the magic from her experiments in longform, from the spooling mythological epics of Ys and the lush, unending tapestry of narratives of Have One On Me, to make her own versions of pop songs. My first post was my favorite records of 2009. If you’re ever looking for a record that imbues so much organic soulfulness into its fibers, this is the one you want. Odd electronic sounds show up and then disappear, never to be heard from again. A true melting pot of hip hop, r&b, bass, pop, grime, dub, Destroyer (check track “Anesthetic”), classical, and surely much more threads of other sounds and genres beyond. A lush smoothness, a gentle breeze, a glint of sunshine off a sideview mirror, a circle of shade from an umbrella, a soft-focus saxophone, a humid trumpet, a starry-eyed synth, a distant clave, a velvet glove left in the backseat, a picnic basket with a wine bottle on the beach, a hazy recollection of the night previous. There are some truly beautiful, top-decade moments on this LP, like the shrieking guitar solos on “A Hundred Highways” (totally the most glamorous car crash song since “In The Kingdom #19” by Sonic Youth) and of course “Lord Knows Best”, one of the best songs ever. It doesn’t help that the cover is greyscale. Oh baby. A concept album strung together by quick audio recordings to establish a narrative shows Kendrick is a compelling storyteller. Thank you for all of the advice and words of encouragement! I may be wrong, but it seems like the dialed-up intensity on the instrumentals to match her own vocal vivacity has never worked better than here. Packed full of peculiar sounds and inquisitive synth explorations, EARS charmed the hell out of me in 2016. TIL that in the Bed of Chaos boss fight, you can throw alluring skulls to force the boss to slam down its hands on that spot for a while. I know of at least 2 for the bed of chaos, but here are exactly 2: 1) You can quit out of the game after destroying an orb, making you respawn at the top in front of the fog gate, and you won't have to destroy that orb again, saving the dangerous backtraging in the arena. This will always be the GOAT in The Weeknd’s catalog, for my money. Not only was it my introduction to ASMR (weird!) Tranquilizing, beautiful folk music that sounds like it was from an alternate dimension. I go for the right core first, then the left. And I couldn’t get away without mentioning the anthemic “Unfucktheworld”. But the openness of its folds is what keeps me and so many like me coming back. I feel like that’s the most common reaction when presented this record. The overwhelmingly pleasurable songs like “Female Vampire”, “Conceptual Romance” and “Secret Touch” were the anchors and everything in between were buoys along this otherworldly journey. You’re a strange one, Mr. An instant teleportation device to an emotional timeline set in a bustling, futuristic metropolis. This is not to say that the album is outright frightening or like a horror movie, it just feeds on anxiety through uncanny vocal touches, dissonant synth passages, throbbing acid techno sequences and disorienting production techniques. Ey ma! A break-up leads our protagonist to a full-bodied metamorphosis into a truly superior, elegant and groove-based individual that effortlessly glides through analyzing and accepting trauma and kindles a new love within themselves. ~~ But I can say this much for certain: Have One On Me is a masterpiece. The dark, murky universe that Sun Araw creates on this record is unlike anything I’ve heard this decade. ~~ “Noid” brings up thoughts of the police in the East Village. ~~ At the halfway point, the vocals make way for a pure tribute to YMO synth nerdery. Some of the best ambient and experimental bites I’ve heard all decade. You really believe that he feels strongly about what he’s singing about. An autonomous silk suit encrusted in mirror shards boogies and slides its way through tropical parties to find its chosen owner. Two stars racing against time. Try and find this on Soundcloud(!) You best be paying attention to me or else I’ll make you pay”. These are tunes that instantly become lodged in my brainstem after an inkling of a thought related to the album crosses my mind. Is there any possible method that will make me able to cheese through this guy without being trololoed all over the board? In 2016, I was absolutely head over heels with this record. ~~ Somehow, someway, the blissful, dreamy instrumentals fused with my conscience at that moment and coalesced into some major affinity. Rolling a special bale of hay through plains, mountains and forests to get to an oceanside farm to feed its livestock. You can shoot the first 2 points with a bow without being in any danger and if you know where to drop down afterwards it goes fine 90% of the time. Creating complex sequences with a synthesizer that’s plugged into a human brain watching roller coaster POV videos. He also released two fantastic new songs, but that’s not what I’m talking about now. It's also nice the bow just in general is a big improvement over DS1. Science fiction films always come to mind while listening: Magnetic Rose, Alien, Event Horizon, The Thing, 2001: A Space Odyssey. Nothing as weird and confident and groovy as this. Not to mention the samples on this thing: Beach House (twice! I started this decade discovering Pitchfork and quickly embarked on a slippery slope of rapid new music consumption from there. ~~ Newsom can take her time moseying her way through this garden of delights, letting the notes appear as she sees fit. Remember 2012 when Mac DeMarco was a bright-eyed upstart making music for the kids? ~~ Haven’t gone back to I Love You, Honeybear with as much vigor as I did when it was first released (cause I listened to the SHIT outta this in 2015), but some of the songs still hit super hard with me. This has faded on me a bit, but its influence has continued to make ripples in the current music environment. I’m sure it’ll continue to be for a long time. It feels like it’s one of the most romantic records ever made. Well, the hate that powers that machine can make one hell of a rock record. c/d: bed of chaos is the MOST annoying boss in the game. I remember ranking this apart from my Best Albums of 2013 list and making a whole different “Weirdo” list because I had no idea what to make of it. Faster songs like “Living The Classics” touches on the pitfalls of living life as a musician. An observation of a conflicted city block nestled within a lava lamp. There is no inch of empty space in the mix on these songs. Just classics here, folks. Also, the man sampled Indonesian gamelan music. This trick requires a bow (can be purchased from the merchant in the Undead Burg) and arrows. ), Siouxsie and the Banshees, Aaliyah and Cocteau Twins. Passionately delivering every line as if its her last. A splendid slow jam “Blush” acts as a kind of dividing line between when the party was innocent and when it devolves into something deeper, something a bit more disassociative. The ranking is pretty fluid and shouldn’t mean much to you until you get to the Top 20 or so. Lanza is bolder in her delivery and more forward in the mix with her punchy vocal melodies. How are you supposed to be responsible about it? ~~ the sequencing is perfection. This record is a clear turning point in Clark’s career, establishing her as an extremely gutsy and amazingly talented musician that finds ways to fit bizarre, alien sounds into porcelain-contained indie rock songs. It's also nice the bow just in general is a big improvement over DS1. I would obsessively scroll through pages and pages of these sites in search of free mp3 downloads, highly-rated albums, best of the year lists, anything to keep discovering new bands and be the coolest kid in my high school, even though I was still a hopeless nerd. A percussionist could be resting for half the song and then all of the sudden come crashing in with a snare rim shot to perfectly emphasize a point Newsom makes lyrically, then stay quiet until the end of the song. Who cares? Quick shots of pure, smeared pop bliss. What else can I say about the album that you can’t already gleam from the Warm Visions description? Yes some of the songs feel samey-samey, but I feel like vocalist Sam Herring is at his most untamed here, making for more dynamic and engaging tracks. Just get wrapped up in her rage, her tales of woe. Post punk for the ages right here, with plenty of personality (or lack of it? I’d say this is a pretty decent starting point if this does sound interesting to you. ~~ ~~ His voice carries a distinct earnestness that gives the music so much more weight. “Nights” is the obvious jam for me, “Close to You” is killer, “Nikes” of course. I’ve binged the hell out of this record so many times since its release and I have yet to get tired of it. SOMETHING to sink my teeth into. While not as electric as Harding’s sophomore record Party, Designer cements her as an absolutely essential and completely unique songwriter of the 10s. Pretty much everything I said about Two Hands applies here, but I feel like on U.F.O.F. At first listen, I hated this record. Although born male, due to magic and association with the moon, Gwyndolin was raised as a daughter but is biologically a male and is reffered to as such from Gwynevere who lovingly calls him brother. I feel like this was around the time that I hated hearing autotune on the radio and this helped me recognize its potential as a tool to shape the human voice into alien formations, removing its natural humanity. Although probably not as iconic as Summertime 06, I found myself continually returning to this album with earworms like “Big Fish” and “Bagbak”. Glad it hasn’t been completely ruined by irony. Also you can hi-five me if you think “Diplomat’s Son” is the best song. ~~ Accompanied many-a-snooze + commute + stressful moment throughout 2019 (where it was far and away my most listened-to album). This LP is like the slow days after clubbing: woozy R&B that’s soft-spoken (unless you need to put a foot down), breeds tenderness, and still loves to listen to dance along with their partner when the moment is right. – Getting trapped in a bright, LCD-covered room and being forced to find the key to exit by popping hundreds of balloons filled with sticky, pink goo. Lush Y2K-era R&B instrumentals thrust into 2019? FKA twigs’ debut LP is an exciting collection of R&B/pop tracks that benefit from brilliant production, twigs’ swift, commanding voice. Perfect for a wandering spirit. Red carpet with golden accents constantly sprouts beneath the feet of a fabled chosen one, causing paparazzi to brainlessly gather around them like moths on a porch light. Maybe I’ll find time to do it elsewhere once I organize my thoughts coherently. If this album had a few less tracks, it would be near-perfect, probably on Pop 2 level. With fusions of bubbling modular synthesis and organic elements like voice, winds and wooden percussion, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith created an aural landscape that’s easy to get lost in. To this day the volleys of bass in “Rev8617” get me amped. Things are ordinary and plain to most people around you, and that really sucks. share. ~~ The Bed of Chaos is a boss fight with a difference. Like I wrote in the Warm Visions description, there’s something about Sampha that makes him so likable. An immortal, emotionally-tortured vampire tries & fails to resurrect a lost friend in a series of dark magic rituals. You just use a bow to aim, and then throw firebombs in the correct spots. Lots of sweet little details, like the partially obscured guitar line on “Miki Dora”, the harmonica solo in “Skipping School” the lovely jangles on “Freedom”, and plenty more. As we all know, not many of those outlets exist or regularly update anymore. The enigmatic Demen only has this record to their name. Even after six years of listening to this record it gets me hyped all the way up. Smearing a human soul on a slide and observing it under a microscope. The Taurus Demon is one of the Bosses found in Dark Souls. ~~ It’s jittery, infectiously positive and blows by in a second. Brought to life by string ensemble Alarm Will Sound and guest production by Arca and The Haxan Cloak, Björk weaves together her tale of woe and grief in a gorgeous tapestry that features some of her best vocal performances, which is still so emotive so many records in. The result is metallic, harmonium-like tone that sound amazing when bounding across a shifting landscape of colorful electronics. Zoning in on the prize only. It flows smoothly, with singers changing on nearly every track, vibes changing on each track, things not feeling homogenous, and it’s still all cohesive. Like my little description above, you get roped into this descent from a glitzy, polished album into a dark experimental corner of broken electronics and ominous vocals & rapping. ~~ Anonymous. Nah I mean, this is a modern classic! 2 years ago. ~~ “Not My Baby”, “Dreams Tonite”, “In Undertow”, “Plimsoll Punks”, “Saved By A Waif”… these are killers! As a small town kid from Michigan, I thought this was what New York City and beyond sounded like. I’m sure you can infer from that that this is a long post, so get your popcorn, get your cookie dough bites, get a cuppa tea in a nice insulated mug – you’re gonna be scrolling quite a bit. One of America’s great modern folk songwriters. High energy garage rock with one hell of a singer. Oh, my dear sun… What now, what should I do…. I’ve known people that bristle against it, but her energetic rasp carries so much emotional weight it basically powers the entire album from front to back. An old-time radio plays classics in a high school gymnasium, with one couple alone dancing and recounting stories of their love. ~~ Check it out you can see tha Brookllln Bridge from my ma’s window! It is an amalgamation of parts built into an alien that operates on another level of consciousness. The first six songs are near-untouchable levels of good. Change ), You are commenting using your Facebook account. ALL KILLER, NO FILLER. Not to mention, jazz also flies into this record with help from new and old masters like Sam Gendel, Shahzad Ismaily and Milford Graves. There are moments on this record that truly astonish me upon every listen; being witness to one of the finest sound architects of our generation. I was then led to blogs like Stereogum, Gorilla Vs. Bear, Pretty Much Amazing, I Guess I’m Floating, We All Want Someone To Shout For, Music For Kids Who Can’t Read Good, Hipster Runoff, Stadiums And Shrines, We Listen For You, My Old Kentucky Blog, The Needle Drop, Largehearted Boy, Under The Radar (ok this is a magazine), Aquarium Drunkard, Altered Zones, YoursTruly, Hype Machine, Daytrotter…. Throwing a couch off a rooftop into a swimming pool, then comically laying on it underwater. Maybe my introduction to ambient music. ~~ Maybe all that is a little naive, but hey, that’s what this album is all about: a teen dream. Hell no, get your pretentious ass outta here. And holy hell, this album is so worth the wait. Pure excess. From then on, I would occasionally post new songs that caught my fancy (trying and failing to impersonate Pitchfork’s Best New Track/Album feature by calling an album/song ‘RADICAL!’) and capping off each year with Best Of lists. Eventually they all die and are easily replaced. and! Maybe my Warm Vision description above is a bit too harsh, but it really does feel like all the aggression powering this record is from a feeling of uselessness. I no longer have the same lightness in social situations. SO loaded full of ideas that at times it feels like the most ambitious album ever made. Too early to start thinking about actual plans for the future, but just right to start reminiscing about the last three-ish years and how the hell you’ll be able to function in “society” after still feeling like a baby in college. All this hedonism is happening around a breathtaking suite of impeccable production and insomniac sound design. I initially had a list of 100, but thought why not expand to 200? Sufjan Stevens called upon the grief and confusion he felt from the passing of his distant mother on Carrie & Lowell, named after his mom and stepdad. Symbolic of nothing except an interest in status. It rolls, bounces and strikes poses, granting confidence to any listener. Git. This is like being so hopped up on adrenaline you cannot stop moving. Whereas Holter’s following two albums are like being plunged within a dream, this is more sketches of dreams with a touch of rigidity to its formula. It seems like their debut is more widely regarded as the classic, but this one is near and dear to my heart. Along with that, I’d say that these songs also established the band as one of the best live bands to catch this decade, especially when they weren’t regularly going out 30 minutes past their set time. Ranked: The 10 Hardest Bosses In Dark Souls. The music was wildly radical; pop music that could change on a dime. Like I said earlier – if you want to get to know the brilliant era of indie rock from 2010 – 2013 (I think it’s brilliant!) According to, I’m this artist’s top listener. Dark Sun Gwyndolin Information "Mark the words of mineself, Gwyndolin! ~~ ~~ If there’s an upbeat song on this record, chances are high that there’s an unreal hook or riff or melody in it. This was some heady, chugging, psychedelic computer music. A dark, dripping hand slowly extends from the gaping opening after you recite the incantation. A beautiful balancing act between rebellious power ballads and stripped-back meditations on youth or the progression of time. Oh boy, Bed of Chaos. ~~ The guest features are well done and although I would have removed the second and third to last tracks to make the full album sequence perfect, it start and end works as a cohesive piece. ~~ The last story has ended. Her knack for making anxiety in woozy, uncertain moments sound beautiful is near-unparalleled. What else did you expect? Pure excess. I’ve never made it big like other blogs (what does indie blog big even mean these days anyways? Deerhunter let the indie rock waters run a bit clearer on this album, not to be clouded with the usual haze of distorted psychedelia. ~~ Sitting in a waiting room, regulating your breathing in anticipation of hearing a potentially life-changing verdict. This record will make you love the trumpet. Little details like the children laughing and screaming on “Werewolf”, the  and the strange mechanical sounds on “Jonathan”. Any combination of Red Tearstone Ring, Feather Arrows, Black Bow of Pharis, and Hawk Ring is recommended. Being afflicted with a dangerous case synth poisoning after too much noodling. If you’ve lost a loved one recently, please tread with caution. The riffs have a swing to them that most groups don’t have. Of course it’s natural for artists to move on and do new things over time as they change on their own, but damn I’m bummed that Elite Gymnastics isn’t around anymore, because. Andy Shauf is able to do this thanks to his impeccable narrative songwriting, keeping us entertained with main characters that pop up throughout the length of the record, all exhibiting familiar feelings and actions that we can connect with. It’s almost voyeuristic the way that the instrumentals wobble and space themselves around Tirzah’s relaxed cadence, almost like she’s just saying these lyrics alone to herself in her house or to her partner on the phone. Beach House make dreamy, intimate songs that use the power of true romance to elevate themselves into the heavens. The great shapeshifter, Aldous Harding. We’re not above any of this. It’s like the character Florentino Ariza in Gabriel García-Márquez’s novel Love In The Time Of Cholera, who ravenously eats the flowers he wanted give his love interest if she didn’t reject him, only to get sick on the beach. Twigs and Arca team up like they’re in the same skin, moving in tandem in a dimly lit glass tank trading sultry, seductive touches in the form of breathy, falsetto vocals and throbbing instrumentals. The first half is much more passive, with songs drifting about like ghosts. or YouTube, since it’s not on streaming services. These folks from Sweden sure can make summery, shining music. It ranges from the easiest to the most punishing but is also consistently the easiest to cheese in various ways. For a while I was conflicted on which Kendrick album was my favorite, but I found it’s just so easy to marvel at what this accomplishes both looking at it from afar and going through it song by song. I can see grandma’s house and her favorite deli on this album cover! I’m convinced she’s like the person I wrote about in the little description – an eternal being that has decided to reveal herself now to show off her songwriting and performing skills. For me, it very much feels like it’s from another time. If ya move to California, you’re a schmuck! It’s all there to support you, but it’s just taking it easy right now. This record does hold a lot of sentimental value, so that’s probably another reason why it’s on here, but it’s still a worthwhile listen. Most bosses in dark souls 1 are fair and non-gimmicky though. ~~ Bold, brash, jealousy-inducing. ~~ An astral playground where time and space can be controlled by your will. The final transmission from David Bowie. I mourned when they called it quits. DS1 is the only souls and boorne game I haven't beaten. The song “Connections” has a deep and personal connection to me – I listen to it all the time. ~~ Bed of Chaos, honestly, is just plain easy with summons... and, if you know what you're doing, it's just as easy alone. ~~ Been seeing this record snubbed on so many Best of the Decade lists over the past few months. You lay on the floor next to each other. Despite the ordeal, you come out the other side comfortable with your body and its natural flaws. What can I say about Plastic Beach? An estranged, drifting socialite has trouble realizing that they died at the start of last century, slowly fading in and out of the cavernous, disintegrating memories of decadent balls past. Intense krautrock and psych samples mixed with signature Detroit grittiness Brown is known for. Thrusting jazzy pop of Amy Winehouse, lofty samba of Astrud Gilberto and classic pop of the 60s and 70s into the future (with help from threads of massively popular reggaeton, production from Tame Impala, BBNG and Steve Lacy), Kali Uchis has not only made a massive step forward in the realm of bilingual Latinx pop, but in pop as a whole. These songs are just SO huge and cinematic that they need to be heard on the big stage. The best thing to come out of the Fade to Mind / Night Slugs explosion of 2011 – 2015. It’s just a snapshot of where I’m at right now. Ey you know what movie I love? There are a few stinkers on here, but the songs that hit are some of Ariel Pink’s all-time best. ~~ A generation touched by insanity. Closing out all other senses just to survive in the heat. ~~ It wasn’t until later I started noticing guitars in here. Jessica Pratt’s otherworldly voice keeps the listener transfixed, as lush arrangements of acoustic guitar sway and shine underneath. The one consistent voice throughout (courtesy of Mozart’s Sister) gives the album an anchor point, allowing the ballistic instrumentals to exist around the vocals as they progress, until everything is ground to dust and shot into another dimension on magnificent closer “Whole New World/Pretend World”. We already saw a Vivian Girls reunion last decade, who’s to say we won’t see a Babies reunion in the 20s? – A constant, nostalgic yearning for the salted air of the sea and the gentle pull of the waves. Being alone in your house and watching the way a sunset casts long shadows and formless pieces of light into less lived-in corners and hallways. Looking back at old paintings you made as a child depicting your interpretations of tall tales your grandparents told you from their youth. Not only an imposing fire-based boss found in the Demon Ruins, Ceaseless Discharge, as his name may suggest, is the source of the lava flow.Killing him will cease the discharge of lava in the lower parts of the ruins, allowing access to the deeper areas of the map, and progress in the campaign. The whole thing is blanketed in a sense of unease, culminating in fantastic closer “Eyesore”, probably the most straightforward and feel-good song here. How could I, with such towering anthems tied up in such pretty packaging like these? The trio of “Those Girls” + “Shoulders” + “Not” is a three-course meal of big feelings. The last born of Lord Gwyn, Gwyndolin is the leader of the Blade of the Dark Moon covenant and the only remaining deity in Anor Londo.Gwyndolin's followers are few, but their tasks are of vital importance. Smerz create an atmosphere like no other on their releases but especially so on Have fun, where the duo pair shattering, blown out bass with vocals that almost sound bored. The gloomy mood and melancholic melodies on these tracks have the ability to convey narratives and mental images without the use of lyrics. Sure there are the lead singles like any album has that most people generally love, but all of the songs on Golden Hour are all so goddamn catchy and striking that it’s easy to believe someone if they said a non-single cut would be their favorite. Vince Staples embraces the harsh electronic textures of say, a PC Music camp (shout out to the SOPHIE production on “Yeah Right”) and turns those hard-hitting bursts of bright textures into bouncing West Coast hip hop instrumentals. Blown out noise rippling against a steel sheet. The most electronic music I had listened to up until that point was Burial. Tim Hecker once again created a world like no other on this album, this time making sounds that are akin to those in a glass-cutting factory or some similar industrial setting where small, sharp objects are being created.
