King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard – Murder Of The Universe

This album is a pure fire, destruction and catharsis. One of the most prog LPs in King Gizzard's enormous collection of records is energetic and rewarding journey through the vast landscapes filled with mighty beasts, monsters and cosmic balance. The pace of Mad Max's pursuits is constantly present, which might be exhausting, but also exhilarating … Continue reading King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard – Murder Of The Universe

Album of the Week: Father John Misty – Pure Comedy

Pure Comedy is a very long endeavour. And excellently executed one. Song after song, Father John Misty is creating an atmosphere of subtlety, intensity, but also monumentality with all of its beauty. This album, just like his previous ones, grows with every song, letting you sink in and enjoy its alluring melodies, charming tones, wonderful lyrics. This … Continue reading Album of the Week: Father John Misty – Pure Comedy

add some music #88

This is where melancholy merges with strong statements, heartbreak with mellow musical collages, classics with modern sounds, rock with electronica and rap. This is where you find darkness, even sadness, yet peace and a potential for lightness. Kendrick Lamar, Gorillaz, Mount Eerie and more.

Album of the Week: Mount Eerie – A Crow Looked At Me

I've spent a lot of time playing GTA V this week. Its world is as fictitious as it can get, vivid, over-exaggerated, brutal, full of specific humor. Listening to Mount Eerie after such experience is a very rough, cold shower. A Crow Looked At Me brings you back to earth with soul-wrenching stories, menalcholic melodies, … Continue reading Album of the Week: Mount Eerie – A Crow Looked At Me

Sorority Noise – You’re Not As _____ As You Think

Oh my, how I enjoyed this album. And enjoyed it since the first listen. I know, it's not an art-rock, album-of-the-year magnificent achievement. It's not even artistically advanced that much. But I just love it. Long live authentic American punk rock, which stays true to its pop roots, while delivering a desperate, yet optimistic message. Your Not As _____ As … Continue reading Sorority Noise – You’re Not As _____ As You Think

Album of the Week: Spoon – Hot Thoughts

It's not a breakthrough, but it's fun. And experimental as well. Spoon recorded an album that merges their alternative explorations with perfected pop rock song. This makes Hot Thoughts album appealing to both new listeners, who are searching for pure entertainment with an addition of alt-rock, but also to alt-rock fans, who are searching for mainstream fun. Title track … Continue reading Album of the Week: Spoon – Hot Thoughts

add some music #84

Delicacy and subtlety merges with strong statements and melancholic atmosphere with the magnificent new songs by Alt-J, Fleet Foxes, The Afghan Whigs, Pallbearer and more. One of the top alternative artists presents what's the best in contemporary music, by delivering satisfying compilation of insightful songs.  

The Shins – Heartworms

Heartworms emanate abstractness, psychedelics and indieness in a way that makes this music featureless. The Shins wanted to sound innovative, brave, melancholic, joyous. They tried to do all at once, which eventually turned out to be pointless. The songs are nice, engaging, but forgetful. There's no artistry that you might experience on their previous albums. … Continue reading The Shins – Heartworms

Album of the Week: Laura Marling – Semper Femina

How she could do it, I don't know. Her talent is enormous, her gentility is magnificent, beauty of her music is astounding. Laura Marling recorded an album that you expected her to record. Semper Femina is as soothing and reflecting as it can get Laura Marling sixth's combination of delicacy and might makes this album both heart-wrenching … Continue reading Album of the Week: Laura Marling – Semper Femina

Chicano Batman – Freedom Is Free

For every person who is fascinated with band's name (I was): there is a little bit of Chicano here, but not much of the Batman. However, there's freedom, which sometimes is actually free. And most importantly, there's fun. Musicians' use slow-jam soul, a little bit of psychedelia, which reminds me of a brave attempts to imitate early Frank Zappa. Yet, … Continue reading Chicano Batman – Freedom Is Free

Dear Reader – Day Fever

Day Fever is a beautifully written, soothing collection of songs, delivered by subtle female voices and a mix of alt-folk, americana and electronic music. It's not a record-breaking milestone of a record, but a wonderfully executed, warm, reassuring and relaxing album, which moves you when you allow it to do so.      

Music Recap: February 2017

February was dominated by Beyonce, because of her twin pregnancy, Grammys performance, lost competition with Adele at the ceremony in question, her new aesthetic conception, finally because of the cancellation of her Coachella performance. For those, who are not interested in Queen B, there were also a ton of things going on in the magical and mystical world of sounds.

King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard – Flying Microtonal Banana

Forget about the world. Forget about the reality. Forget about the cover art. Forget about the weird band name and LPs title. Forget the fact this band released 9 albums in 5 years. Forget about the prejudice towards this record. Just listen and forget. Let the trance, psychedelia and unreality of those songs guide you … Continue reading King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard – Flying Microtonal Banana
