Party Supplies - Tough Love

chris on March 27 2015

I think theres a new genre bouncing style of music that has formed. Part rock and part electronic and part nu-disco. The albums almost sound like mixes of different artists. Classixx was the first band that popped on my radar, followed by Vesuvio Solo and now Party Supplies. I'm into it! Bands that sound like themselves are boring.

Action Bronson - Baby Blue

Action Bronson, you truly truly are Mr. Wonderful.

µ-Ziq - XT

You know when you do a little digging into something or someone, and it opens up a whole world that you didn't even know existed. I feel like a Dum Dum. Mike Paradinas is extremely prolific and has been contributing to pretty much every genre of electronic music since the late 80s. Insert "no doy" comment.

Olympic Ayres - Daylight

I had a dream last night in which I went deaf. I never want to go deaf. I love music.

Soko - Fantastic Planet

I've got a lot on my plate, so quit giving me a hard time.

St. Paul and The Broken Bones - Call Me

Alex on March 16 2015

I have some sort of Michael Jackson Marvin Gaye hybrid clone conspiracy theory in the works - I'll keep you up to date on the investigation until then just sit back and be seduced by an overweight white man who's blacker than Pharrell.

Grimes - REALiTi

Grimes seems to be unstoppable, simultaneously crushing the haters and my heart. Chun-li on steroids pretty much.

Girlpool - Ideal World

This song completes the 90s-sounding-girl triumvirate. I've actually been waiting to use the word triumvirate for seven years. It seems history favors the even numbers.

Speedy Ortiz - The Graduates

chris on March 12 2015

I've decided to go on a three song bender of 90s sounding girls. Consider this installment two. Left As Rain supports women's equality!... but more importantly music that sounds like 90s music.

Jenny Hval - That Battle is Over

chris on March 12 2015

At first I was like... No way Jose, get that Alanis Morissette bullshit outta my face. But then I was like, wait... Jagged Little Pill was kinda amazing. Then I was like, don't relate this artist to Alanis Morisette! She's her own strong independent woman, Chris! Get your closed minded misogynistic head out of your ass. I mean, it was International Women's Day the other day for Christ sake. You know what Jenny Hval... You go girl! Sacred Bones once again nails it.
