Just when I thought I might be getting tired of new music, this past month comes along and drops 6 excellent albums on my earholes:
- The War on Drugs – Lost in the Dream: Probably my indie-rock album of the year.
- Mac Demarco – Salad Days: Sad I wasn’t able to make it to Durham before his show at Duke Coffeehouse was already sold out.
- Madlib & Freddie Gibbs – Pinata: Probably my hip-hop album of the year. Instant classic.
- Black Milk – Glitches in the Break: Black Milk getting a little bit weird, but it works wonderfully.
- Real Estate – Atlas: The soundtrack for laying on your hammock on a warm spring day.
- Denmark Vessey – Cult Classic: Mad slept on. I’ve heard absolutely zero internet chatter about this one.
Hell, I even liked Jon Dwyer’s Damaged Bug album pretty well.
