Split Enz - Mental Notes. I like this overall, although it's a bit inconsistent. Reminds me a ton of Gabriel-era Genesis - also a bit of Blossom Toes. The best parts are really great.
Paul Williams - Someday Man. Prolific '70s songwriter ("Rainbow Connection" for one); also played the villain in and wrote all the music for Phantom Of The Paradise. This album is a bit easy listening but has enough points of interest to make it a worthwhile listen.
Duncan Browne - Duncan Browne. An interesting one - veers behind '70s singer-songwriter style stuff with very occasional proggy, hard rock intervals. "Last Time Around" is the most striking track. Overall I think it's good.
Life Without Buildings - Any Other City. I've been listening to this a ton for some reason. It's impressive how timeless it sounds - partly because the vocals and lyrics don't have any close comparisons I know of. It's great.
Let's Eat Grandma - I'm All Ears. Good, on par or possibly better than their first one.
Charli XCX - Number One Angel. One of the better pop albums of recent memory.
The School - Loveless Unbeliever. This is pleasant, but so reminiscent of other things (most prominently Camera Obscura) that it almost doesn't register as an entity in and of itself.
Howling Bells - Howling Bells. Decent but forgettable.
Y La Bamba - Ojos Del Sol. This is good, kind of folk-rocky.
