Gonjasufi … MU.ZZ.LE … 2012

This cat is a yoga instructor turned psych-hip-hop folk artist. He specializes in left-field wonked-out bliss that befuddles anyone looking for genre tags. Kinda like a Mody/Sufjan/Eels burrito. Nothing terribly groundbreaking but well done.

Cass McCombs … Humor Risk … 2011

Part depressing odes, part ‘70s macchismo throwback, all rock. Somewhere between lust and lament, Cass is looking for salvation.

Thee Oh Sees … Carrion Crawler/The Dream EP … 2011

Thee Oh Sees is sorta primo in the lo-fi indie seen right now… no big deal. This EP, I think, is more accessible than their jangly, rushed debut album. Heavy riffs and grooving bass lines drive this EP forward into the realm of decent music. 

RIYL No Age, Cloud Nothings

Bombay Bicycle Club … A Different Kind of Fix … 2011

Somewhere between rock and electonica, BBC’s rhythms are freaking catchy! I’ve been listening to the first track on repeat for a couple weeks straight. Definitely recommended.

M83 … Hurry Up We’re Dreaming … 2011

Don’t let the length of this album intimidate you. It’s an explosion of shoegazey dreampop all the way through. The album works best as one cohesive unit. It is a trip to the moon in slow motion. Recommended!
