More of: Latest Listens

Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks - Real Emotional Trash. The album has a few really good songs, but as a whole, not that great. "Out to Reaches" is a classic.
If you like: Pavement, Neutral Milk Hotel, songs about oysters, and Cheshire cat grins.

The Dodos - Visiter. The first half of the album is pretty solid. I would probably just download those tracks. I get bored in the second half.
If you like: Animal Collective, Annuals, Arcade Fire, Yeasayer, stranger listens.

Sun Kil Moon - April. Loved Ghosts of the Great Highway. April is a really boring album. Hopefully, it will grow on me.
If you like: Red House Painters, really really really really really slow music.

Los Campesinos - Hold On Now, Youngster. Love "You! Me! Dancing" but it basically ends there for me.
If you like: Architecture in Helsinki, Stars, pots and pans banging, loosened vocals, and a screeching female background vocal.
