Setsuko is a grindcore band from Stockholm who are kind of new. This is their only release so far (kind of a demo) and it was released the 10th of May of this year. Super new, I know, but I stil think that I will give it a short review. Of course it will be a short review, shit is under five minutes, what do you expect me to do?
When I went to check the top charts of the lo-fi indie genre in RYM, I was surprised that a damn Finnish album was sitting in the top of the year spot. When was the last time that YOU listened to a Finnish album? Huh? Never? Damn… Well, I have only listened to like two Finnish records before this one, but I swear that this one will be a good one. It was released the 13th of January and the album cover is looking FRESH.
VINE is Jen Gloeckner’s third album, which was released the 14th of april this year (2017). Jen comes from Dubuque, Iowa. I got this album on the INDIE IS DEAD mail like a month ago and I’m extremely guilty because I didn’t check the mail then haha. Now, I’m expecting some real good stuff from this record since this is how it is described in the sheet:
Well, what can I say?? Sign me up to this shit because I’m starting to get hyped. Let’s not waste more time, because here comes my review.
This is Mac Demarco’s 5th album, “This Old Dog”. It is to be released on May 5 but it has leaked. I really respect Mac, he is a great guy but this time curiosity won over me and I just HAD TO DOWNLOAD IT (I suspected it was gonna be a virus but it’s the real deal) How do albums even get leaked? How does that work? was it the RUSSIAN HACKERS?!?!?!
ok that was pretty stupid
anyways let’s review this bad boy, sorry mac
like if u agree
THIS IS A TEST POST
Chicagojazzen is the musical project of Erik Karlsson which he started back in 2007 (?) when he was 15 years. Since that he has released 13 other releases. He lives super north in the country (Umeå), so there might be chances of some COLD STUFF. While it is supposed to be his solo project, this album was made with 13 other musicians, so I will be expecting some real experimental shit. Enough with the chit chat, let’s get some grub going.
Now here’s kind of an obscure album. It was released the 17th January this year (2017 if you are currently reading this on the future) by Simon Cameron Fletcher. In the bandcamp page it says that the songs were recorded in 2012. I’ve listened to his demos album (this one) and I really liked it. Apparently all songs are written by the man himself, Lou Barlow. Does that mean this is a cover album? I wanted to listen to this one because I think the cover is really pretty.
Anyways why don’t we just go ahead and review? Listen to it here. Also, please try to buy it!
The 17th of February, Jens Lekman released his new record “Life Will See You Now”. It has been getting lots of attention since it’s his first album to be released after 2012’s “I Know What Love Isn’t. I’ve already some people call it ALBUM OF THE YEAR. But does the record itself come to the levels of the hype? Let’s find out.
Before I start, I want to say that this will be my first Jens Lekman album ever. It seems like he already had some kind of fanbase, so he can’t be that bad, right? Also found out that he’s Swedish, so that’s cool too.
Now, this record must be one of the comfiest things that I’ve heard so far. Will he get mad at me if I say that his music reminds me a lot of Belle & Sebastian would meet some kind of batshit dance party band? It’s just fun all around, the whole time.
