boots electric.

i have never been crazy about eagles of death metal, but front man jesse hughes side project, boots electric really was wonderful. despite having unreasonably amazing album artwork, this record is a delightful and poppy. "i love you all the thyme," are you kidding? i want to listen to it on repeat for a week. i enjoy this record from start to finish. it's just super fun. not everything has to be intense, some things are better simple and sweet, like this.

day 1: wild flag

i am REALLY obnoxious about girl singers. i don't really know how to explain it, but i am extremely hard to please when it comes to a front woman, and this is the hardest thing for me to get past with girl supergroup, wild flag. made up of members of sleater-kinney, helium, and the minders; wild flag is really, technically brilliant.

the drummer, janet weiss,[formally of sleater-kinney] blows my mind. carrie brownstien and mary timony play so well off of each other i can barely stand it. but i have a really hard time with the vocal style... every song on this record is catchy and interesting, nothing is going where you expect it to, in the best way. it is a garage rock record and each woman is an insanely impressive musician.

that being said, i will admit this to no one i work with.

wild flag: "romance"
wild flag: wild flag [released 9/13]

i liked a lot of music this year...

i don't know that i LOVED a lot. but i liked a lot. enough to the point that i feel i need to share AND i need to start sharing NOW. i'm hoping to post an album a day, we'll see though...

there may be mermaids under the water...

finally, i'm excited about something...

A lot of amazing records have come out this year, but nothing has grabbed me. Yeah, I'm jamming that Timber Timbre record pretty hard, I've been grooving the Cut/Copy album, I adore TV on the Radio's latest; but nothing has had a, "this is my number one album" feel to it. This week, however, the Horrors album, Skying, is blowing my freaking mind.

Get it. Love it.
