Favorite music from 2013 (2 of 6)
Album: MBV - My Bloody Valentine
Kind of like the return of Bowie this year, My Bloody Valentine had not put out an LP in a long time. Word is the band haven't reinvented themselves with the new album, but it should please existing fans of the group. Noise pop is not usually my thing, however I still found 3 songs I'm liking:
In another way
Is this and yes
Album: Push The Sky Away - Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
Feels more accessible to a wider audience than his darker albums. The quieter approach reminds me of The Boatman's Call, from the 90s, which I loved too. Album of the year so far.
Push The Sky Away
We No Who U R
Album: The Flowerlane - Ducktails
Became aware of this band from Burning Reels, a blog I follow, who also appreciates dream pop.
Letter of intent
Album: Songs For Imaginative People - Darwin Deez
I loved his 2010 track Bad Day
Album: Outrun - Kavinsky
Received favorable reviews on metacritic. Is it just me? Considering how much I loved Nightcall by Kavinsky from Drive soundtrack, this album as a whole didn't live up to my expectations, besides a couple of tracks.
Album: Fade - Yo La Tengo
Cornelia and Jane
Is That Enough
Well You Better
