So we have reached it. The final post. What follows are four of the most innovative and exciting albums I’ve heard, period. They bode well for a future that is sure to hold its share of incredible music yet to come, music that I will likely be raising my own children on. That being said,… Read More

The Lesson from Snapline

Part 1: Do Chinese people, like, listen to music? I’ve been in Beijing for six months. It’s great, thanks for asking. The calendar days are shedding off quicker and quicker. In two months, I’ll be off the boat, and yet almost assuredly washed away in the undertow of my inebriated friends’ questions about Chinese food… Read More

Leftsetz or Rightsetz?

My thoughts on “Gotta Get To Know You” by Bob Lefsetz “Because it’s about the experience, whether it be coming or listening to music, it’s what it feels like during, not what you’re left with after.” First of all, this is an amazing song from an amazing band. You should definitely take a listen to… Read More

Real Estate // Atlas

It’s hard to quantify just how eager I was for Atlas. Real Estate’s self-titled debut was the soundtrack to the winter of my freshman year. In just their first release, they already seemed to encapsulate that jangly “beach pop” sound that’s become a recent obsession in indie music. Their follow-up, Days, landed in 2011 to… Read More

Darkside—Psychic

  So, while it’s been available to stream online for a while, Darkside’s new album was officially released exactly one week ago. Darkside is the collaboration between Nicolas Jaar, blogosphere-dubbed electronic wünderkid, and guitar prodigy Dave Harrington, and while the two genres that these Brown University classmates represent may seem disparate, don’t write off the… Read More
