Robert J. Howell’s Top Albums of 2014

January 2nd, 2015 · Comments Off on Robert J. Howell’s Top Albums of 2014

This year I can’t in good conscience list ten albums in order. It always feels like splitting invisible hairs to decide between one and two or five and six, and when the albums I loved this year are such a diverse bunch it just seems silly. (I would say it is like comparing apples to […]

Monomania is a willfully inscrutable/abstruse nocturnal garage pastiche of shopworn indie standards, pieced together meticulously from a post-nothing fakebook, delivered with mesmerizing […]

KFL’s Top Albums of 2013

January 3rd, 2014 · Comments Off on KFL’s Top Albums of 2013

KFL is a writer/lover of music, a drinker of coffee and a (begrudging) maker of lists. —————————————- Admission/Confession: I don’t bother defending my opinions these days; I find it to be an exercise in futility. Besides, I’m really fucking lazy. This is for posterity as much as anything. The List: 1. Phosphorescent, “Muchacho” (Dead Oceans […]

Eric Greenwood’s Top Albums of 2013

January 2nd, 2014 · Comments Off on Eric Greenwood’s Top Albums of 2013

1. Lorde, Pure Heroine (Universal) I’m fairly certain I would not have surmised my most listened to album of the year would have been written and recorded by a 16-year-old girl from New Zealand.

So, there’s that. –@kerryrm Still Corners – Strange Pleasures Continuing what they started on Creatures Of An Hour, Still Corners deliver more of the same ethereal dream pop that I can’t resist. Strange Pleasures is like the soundtrack to a long drive across a […]

K’s Top Albums of 2010

December 23rd, 2010 · 3 Comments

Looking back at my list from 2009, I find I still listen to the majority of those records to this day. To be quite honest, I seriously doubt I’ll be listening to the bulk of my Top 10 of 2010 come next year. That’s not to say I don’t love these records; I do. Many […]
