Darn good indiefolkpop worth a check.
A nice quiet album. Very atmospheric, without being annoying ambient music.
And finally, a very neat cover!

I admit, I read too quickly when I put this submission into my playlist and thought it was the new Caitlin Cary–you know, the chick from Whiskeytown. And truth to tell, there’s a similar sound: Smart country, with little-to-no twang (and where there is some, it’s subtle, tasteful, and charming). But Ms. Rose is more traditional–and I mean that in a good way.
In fact, with every listen I’m loving this more and more. Especially the track titled “Waitin’.” It shoulda been the single! But I Was Cruel is good, too.
Check it out.
RIYL: Patsy Cline, Jack White’s album with Loretta Lynn, and, yes, Caitlin Cary.
French Club’s music has been called “vagabond.” I like that.
It’s college rock. It’s a free album. It’s worth more than what they’re asking you to pay for it.
Check it out.
Sam Page kicks ass. I’ve said that before, based just on an EP, but now there’s album proof positive.
The first cut, “I Don’t Want To Think About Her Anymore” doesn’t sound at first blush like it kicks ass. It sounds like that most awful of genres, white boy rap and roll. But listen closer. This isn’t Everlast. This isn’t lame. This is infectious and fun.
Then one of the singles comes on, “Now I Know,” and it’s true. Now I know. Sam Page kicks ass.
He says his music is for fans of Weezer and Cake, and that’s true. Everybody loves cake.
Is it to early to post a candidate for one of the best albums of 2013?
Probably. But fuck it. Get “Breach.”
Don’t argue with me, just obey.
Okay, I admit I was very surprised when the first cut off of TTNG’s sophomore album, 18.104.22.168.0. I’d never heard, or heard of, the band before it crossed my submission transom, and what with the band’s name, I was expecting punk. Not Math Rock.But it’s good. Damn good.
Check it out:
An album that name-checks The Big Liebowski, has a song about off-shore drilling on Mars, and a ballad asking a girl to be “his habit” and “come on and grab it” can’t be bad, can it?
No, it can’t.
Panjanatan is a witty, constantly shifting record that combines quirky electronica with “real” instrumentation to create a unique, fascinating sound. It makes me think he must be great live.
RIYL: Beck, Wilco’s experimental period,Jonathan Coulton.
