The microtonal thing seems kind of like a gimmick but maybe I need to hear it on headphones? I got tired of every vocal melody being doubled on guitar - worse than Sonic Youth! Otoh it's an easy listen and I dug the Mad Dog Morgan song.
Massive Attack - 100th Window
I remember this getting a poor reception and I've seen some more positive reviews lately. It didn't make a huge impression either way, no great standouts like the first half of Mezzanine, and no massive drags like the last half.
Silver Jews - American Water (and "Tennessee")
Tennessee is so ####ing good. American Water is an amazing album to listen to driving around on a sunny morning with a hangover.
Death Grips - Year of the Snitch
This is solid! Maybe their most consistent since the early albums!
Sonic Youth - Sister
It's good, you know.
Let's Eat Grandma - I'm All Ears
God, I wish they had a better band name, makes me cringe every time. Anyway this is interesting and I'll listen again, "Cool and Collected" is an excellent song and "Donnie Darko" is better than any 11-minute song with that title has a right to be.
Popol Vuh - Heart of Glass
Bow Wow Wow - Girl Bites Dog
Never really gave them a shot but this comp of the first album and assorted singles is fun as hell and pretty ####ing creepy.
Ronnie Lane's Slim Chance
the whole thing is lovely easy-going 70's folk-rock, I recommend it!
