  4. Viet Cong Natalie Prass Mount Eerie Justin Townes Earle Father John Misty David Bazan Pond That is about it that has come out for me this year. Viet Cong is a lot of fun.
  5. I have about 2 posts a year but this is always my favorite. Here is my top 11 with links to my favorite songs from each album. 11. Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra - Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light On Everything 10. Angel Olsen - Burn Your Fire For No Witness 9. Mac Demarco - Salad Days 8. Adult Jazz - Gist Is 7. Strand Of Oaks - Heal 6. Horse Thief - S/T 5. Sharon Van Etten - Are We There 4. David Bazan - Monthly Volume 1 3. Wye Oak - Shriek 2. The Antlers - Familiars 1. Timber Timbre - Hot Dreams This year, in my opinion, was filled with a bunch of B to B+ albums. Nothing that truly stood out. Sharon Van Etten might have put out the best record of the year but it is so difficult to listen at times due to its emotion and open nature that it couldn't make its way to the top. Timber Timbre has with their last two albums been my favorite album of each year. They are awesome. Other albums that are worth listening to: Alvvays - Alvvays, Asgeir - In The Silence, Chet Faker - Built on Glass, Haley Bonar - Last War, Metronomy - Love Letters, Lydia Loveless - Somewhere Else, Perfume Genius - Too Bright, She Keeps Bees - Eight Houses, St. Vincent - St. Vincent, TOPS - Picture You Staring, We Were Promised Jetpacks - Unravelling, Weyes Blood - The Innocents, Wild Beasts - Present Tense,
  6. for everyone who still cares about david bazan, it is worth mentioning that he has been putting out 2 new songs for the last 5 months on what he calls his "bazan monthly". they are all available on single lp's and on youtube as well. each are awesome and he is bring back some headphones vibes too. check em out if you are so inclined. my favorite so far...
  7. Adult Jazz - Spook We Were Promised Jetpacks Perfume Genius Tops
  8. 2014 so far has been kind with some highly anticipated albums living up to expectations. These are the records that I would consider to be in heavy rotation for my car and shit. Angel Olsen - Burn Your Fire For No One Asgeir - In The Silence Chet Faker - Built On Glass Horse Thief - Fear In Bliss Mac Demarco - Salad Days Sharon Van Etten - Are We There St Vincent - S/T Thee Silver Mt. Zion - Fuck Off Timber Timbre - Hot Dreams Wild Beasts - Present Tense Wye Oak - Shriek I haven't had a chance to digest First Aid Kit but I imagine it will grow on me. Excited for Slow Club releasing an album next month. Don't really have anything else on the calendar but 2014 as has been said, is doing just fine.
  9. St. Vincent Something David Bazan Thrice Refused Thursday Taken
  10. Everyone needs to start checking out albumoftheyear.org By far my most trusted site for music as it is a more indie version of Metacritc and it only focuses on music.

  12. Portland, Maine. I moved out here from California/Seattle over a year ago and I have really come to enjoy it. It is a small town (66k residents in the city itself) but still has a downtown with a skyline of sorts, great restaurants and beer, water views all around ya and it doesn't cost you an arm and a leg to live in downtown. I am living on what is known as the East End with an apartment that has a (small) view of the water. It is only 400 bucks for my share of the apartment and it is fucking great. The outdoors and wilderness are only a short drive out of town and it is very easy to find yourself in the middle of nowhere. No traffic, no big crowds yet you still get the feel of a downtown; the food and nightlife of a downtown but without all that hustle and bustle. In terms of career options, eh. There are jobs but nothing that will make ya wet. Moral of the story, it is cool little city that has a lot to offer and is a pretty simple way of life (Maine's state motto: The way life should be). Bands still come through (Saw St. Vincent/David Byrne last month and this week I'm seeing Father John Misty w/ Night Moves, Beach House, and Jason Isbell). Just a place to look into. And Boston is only 2 hours away so if you are dying for a weekend trip to a big city, it ain't too far.
  13. That was definitely my initial reaction. And in certain ways, I still think of it as a split EP but the other guy's songs have grown on me. Redback Strike and Ghost to Be are good however, HELLP is one of Bazan's best. I can't get enough of that song. I think this effort is much stronger than Stranger Negotiations which was still solid. The songs he puts out on this record are all winners.
  14. So far it has been a good year. Here are some of my highlights: Torres - Torres Camera Obscura - Desire Lines Daughter - If You Leave Edwyn Collins - Understated Hiss Golden Messenger - Haw Hookworms - Pearl Mystic Local Natives - Hummingbird Night Beds - Country Sleep The National - Trouble Will Find Me Overseas - Overseas Waxahatchee - Cerulean Salt Wooden Hands - Blood Oaths of the New Blues Youth Lagoon - Wondrous Bughouse Big ups to Torres and Overseas. Check em out.
  15. David joined forces with some other dudes, Will Johnson (Centro-Matic) Matt Kadane and Bubba Kadane (Bedhead), to write an awesome record. Band is called Overseas. If you have ever liked anything Bazan has done in the past, this is a must have. I can't tell you how many times I've listened to the song HELLP since I pre-ordered the vinyl. The dude is a genius. So, check em out.
