VIOLENT FEMMES
TWO MICS (DIG)
$11.99(sale priced)
2 Mics & the Truth is a live album compiled from the tapes they made during the numerous acoustic radio sessions. These performances are easily the most straightforward and elemental recordings this band has ever released, with the energy and passion of the band in flight making up for the occasional flubbed notes and dropped beats along the way. The set list on 2 Mics spans the group's career, with the best-loved songs from the group's 1983 debut sitting alongside 'I Could Be Anything' and 'Traveling Solves Everything' from We Can Do Anything, and while the audience generally seems more excited to hear the 'hits,' the truth is the album is enjoyably consistent, with the newer material boasting much of the same vigor and nerdy smarts as the classics. Considering that he's been making like a emotionally over-amped adolescent since the early '80s, it's impressive how convincing Gordon Gano still sounds on this material, and his guitar work is ragged but right, and bassist Brian Ritchie's acoustic bass and random bellowing provides an ideal yang to Gano's yin.
FOSTER THE PEOPLE
SACRED HEARTS CLUB
$12.99(sale priced)
From the first sounds of Sacred Hearts Club, Foster the People has their sound back. Pay the Man, is a fast-paced, beat-driven song thats already been taking dance floors by storm thanks to its early release on the bands III EP that was released in April.The III EP this was a brilliant piece of marketing by the record company and one that seems to have helped Foster the People capture that same momentum they had with their first album. The EP has three of the most buzzworthy songs from the Sacred Hearts Club album, which is great for publicity, but a little disappointing if youre hoping for all new songs.Doing it for the Money, is another song featured on both the EP and album. Its a masterpiece of indie dance-pop, a genre I think Foster the People is most successful with. The group has a knack for capturing great grooves and catchy choruses.
TYLER THE CREATOR
FLOWER BOY (EXCO)
$13.99(sale priced)
The preconceived notions of what a Tyler, The Creator album is gonna be like are plentiful well before you even press play. This has been both a boon and a hindrance to his career, tipping more to the boon side of the scale in what has become a viral habit of either hating or loving something based almost solely on your own personal internet culture and what your daily feed prompts you to feel about a certain subject. The 26-year-old rappers name has become synonymous with controversy that has put a stink on anything he touches. But like any other stink, seeking out the source of where its coming from is key.Music as a whole has switched from a beefy main course to bite-size finger snacks served on a platter designed to be used quickly and then recycled. The nibbling, parasitic influence of clickbait and pull quotes have made it so that the records themselves, which should be the main focus, are the least important element in an album cycle, taking a back burner to the buzz that surrounds them. With a few more years of actual living and growing under his belt since the release of his last album, 2015s Cherry Bomb,
LANA DEL REY
