Various - Lost Notebooks Of Hank Williams: Just awesome.

6.29.2012 |

Tragedy - Darker Days Ahead: I have trouble getting into the vocal delivery.

TS And Past Haunts - Gone And Goner: No substitute for a new Piebald album.

Bruce Springsteen - Wrecking Ball: Unashamedly his.

Sleigh Bells - Reign Of Terror: Band/concept continues to grow on me.

Sleigh Bells - RT

6.28.2012 |

Silversun Pickups - Neck Of The Woods: Mildly disappointing.

6.27.2012 |

The Shins - Port Of Morrow: Incredibly underwhelming.

Rockpile - Seconds Of Pleasure: Several singles worthy of repeat listens.

Matt Pryor - May Day: Would not be my first choice for where to start for his related albums.

Portugal. The Man - The Mountain In The Clouds: Perfect album for a live setting in a drug-induced state.

PJ Harvey - Let England Shake: Certainly good, but best of last year? I need more time.

Randy Newman - 12 Songs: Sometimes excellent execution trumps uniqueness.

6.26.2012 |

Off! - Off!: More please!

6.25.2012 |

of Montreal - Paralytic Stalks: Hissing Fauna continues to be the yardstick by which their albums measure up. Not close this time.

The Nighty Nite - Dimples: I miss The Paper Chase.

Nada Surf - The Stars Are Indifferent To Astronomy: Always enjoyable but mostly forgettable.

The Menzingers - On The Impossible Past: Yet another great album, almost like they can do no wrong.

Mars Volta - Noctourniquet: Borderline traditional.

Liverpool - Women & Work: Feels like a very grown-up album.

Ben Kweller - Go Fly A Kite: He has aged well.

6.24.2012 |

Killer Mike - PL3DGE: Best hip-hop album I have heard in a while.

Japandroids - Celebration Rock: Certainly reason to celebrate.

6.23.2012 |

Islands - A Sleep & A Forgetting: Wife walked in while this was on and thought it was Coldplay.

6.22.2012 |

Hot Water Music - Exister: My favorite album of their's.

6.20.2012 |

Dr. John - Locked Down: No part of this album feels forced, but all of it feels awesome.

Death Grips - The Money Store: Certainly more accessible, but less engaging than debut. Not likely to get many more listens.

6.19.2012 |

Dead Swans - Anxiety And Everything Else: Over before I had a chance to get into it.

Cursive - I Am Gemini: Lacking in intensity.

6.18.2012 |

Leonard Cohen - Old Ideas: Certainly respectable for what it is, but not somethings will listen to repeatedly.

6.17.2012 |

Cheap Girls - Giant Orange: Giant awesome would be more apt.

Ceremony - Zoo: Makes we want to revisit the entire post-punk genre. I think I missed something the first time around.

Cartel - Chroma: For all the hype, it has not held up over time unless you were there.

6.16.2012 |

Blu - NoYork!: So much potential, so little success.

6.15.2012 |

Black Breath - Sentenced To Life: Extremely heavy but engrossing music is like Moby Dick. Meet Moby Dick.

Andrew Bird - Break It Yourself: Title track feels out of place on this superb set of stripped down songs.

6.14.2012 |

The Cult - Electric: Garage rock that likely sounds better live. Find out Sunday.

The Assistant - We'll Make The Roads By Walking: The debut still gets trotted out now and again. This one not likely to share the same fate.
