Day 526: New Generation by Saint Pepsi

Impulse hangover listen. Not very good. Doing this to save the score. I'm starting to think Prom King was a flash in the pan.

Day 527: Bird Box by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross

I have not watched this movie and will not until someone else forces me to watch it with them. I used to be BIG into Nine Inch Nails... when I was about 12, and now too much of their music either comes across as cringy to me or reminds me of cringe-ass 12 year old me. Some songs are good, usually the sex ones, but my favorite release of theirs nowadays is probably Ghosts I-IV as hit-or-miss as that one is. Based on the very little I remember of other soundtracks these two did (from watching the movies, like The Social Network and...) this should be right up my alley.

Is Sleep Deprivation supposed to be a redux of that crying song in Twin Peaks? You know the one. I swear some of the progressions are near identical matchups.

I was about to try and write an actually good review but nah this album really doesn't deserve it. Meh.

Best Track: What Isn't Anymore
Rsting: 5/10

Day 528: Malibu Ken by Malibu Ken

Within 5 seconds of playing the album, one can immediately tell that this is Tobacco making the beats due to his distinctive style, although for the most part he uses a greater amount of restraint and lower amount of overdubs which makes the whole thing sound nice and simple in some places, empty in others.

Acid King has the best lyrics on the album. Suicide Big Gulp has the best flow on the album. Although the flow is something that seems to have changed very little, the last Aesop Rock release I reviewed was a lot more... impenetrable with the words chosen, but the beats were not nearly as weird, which I care about more.

Overall, I definitely like this one. Some parts are weaker than others and I think that the Black Moth Super Rainbow guy went a bit too restrained, but this is an enjoyable, concise album with fresh approaches.

Best Track: Tuesday or Sword Box

Day 529: Landloper by Little People

Running through the new releases of people I reviewed years prior is probably gonna be a theme for the year. This is perfectly pleasant, perfectly run-of-the-mill trip hop, or whatever genre it actually is I don't care.

Best Track: How To Navigate

Day 530: Nothing Is Something by Tree & Vic Spencer

The Bass was briefly a contender for my favorite cut on this album, then the countdown hook took me out of it.

Other than that minor quibble (am I old now? or is that more a hipstery word?) I have nothing to complain about. This is very consistent, the perfect length, very well-produced and very well-ordered. The mood variance is subtle, but I think it's enough for this kinda project.

Best Track: Lucifer Callin or Spotify Playlist

Day 532: Why Hasn't Everything Already Disappeared? by Deerhunter

I've listened to this album 3 times now. I KNOW these are good, well-written songs. Unfortunately, I just don't feel hooked or interested by the majority of it. And what makes it more agitating for me is that there are plenty of really cool bits here, so why don't I love this album?

I don't love this album.

Best Track: The ending of Nocturne is the best thing I've ever heard from this band.

Day 534: VLA by Carbon Based Lifeforms

I like these guys but this particular album has been on my phone for like 6 yesrs without me ever listening to it.

It's very different and not as good ss their other works, but pleasant enough. The little subtle changes in the drone lulled me to sleep in a noisy ass car quite well can't ask for more

Day 535: Girl With Basket Of Fruit by Xiu Xiu (Album Choice: mad people I know)

Starts out pretty interesting, maintains a pretty interesting atmosphere afterwards for a while with a few errors, by The Wrong Thing I was starting to lose interest, then I really enjoyed the last two tracks. With the exception of strangely cathartic closer Normal Love (which ALMOST fits its title compared to the rest of these "songs") I think the more cluttered it is the better it is, other than the campy Mary Turner Mary Turner (Amargi Ve Moo) also made me groan.

This would make for either a horrendous or a wonderful live show.

Day 536: Electric Lady Sounds by LCD Soundsystem

Why are these songs so long? And these guys aren't as good as Talking Heads. About half of these are good cuts worthy of dancing. Also whenever there's that dopey trying to pretend to be Ian Curtis trying to pretend to be Jim Morrison, that's also annoying.

Day 537: Everything's For Sale by Boogie

A good chunk of tunes here are pretty catchy, but this whole thing is not my kinda sadboi rap and some tracks feel incomplete (more JID pretty please) while others drag.

Also, negative one point for that one feature. You know the one. Candy ass.

Day 538: Careful by Boy Harsher

This is a genre I've found comes across as cheesy way too often, so the fact that I only recoiled at under 20% of this album means it's a strong one for its genre. I also really dig the dancier tracks.

Day 539: New Breed by DAWN

For a 32 minute album, there's a distressing amount of filler here. Also, why are there so many spoken word/field recording sections in this album?

That's my biggest complaint with this album but overall it's a pleasant, quick listen albeit probably a bit frontloaded and inconsistent. Lyrically, I have no complaints and the production (minus the aforementioned problem of wasted space) is lush without being cheesy.

Day 540: Maniac Meat by Tobacco

I'm gonna take this time to bump Malibu Ken to an 8.5.

This is relevant because I assumed I loved the album because of Tobacco and in spite of Aesop Rock.

This album's complete inconsistency is making me question that. Also, as a lifelong Beck fan these are some really superfluous features.

Day 541: New Atlantis by Efdemin

Is the album title the theme that this guy was going for? The vocals in the beginning and spoken word in the final track both suck ass, let's get that out of the way. Some of these tracks, ESPECIALLY the title track (which is also the longest cut) and Black Sun, are groovy enough that they could keep a club going if just played on loops. The rest are just... weird and not in an interesting way. The appropriately titled Temple just sounds like a lost SNES game song, At The Strangers House feels like a weird, crappy bastard child of Nine Inch Nails and Boards Of Canada and I already complained about those first and last tracks.

Strip away all the fat and you're left with a decent little half-hour album. As it stands this is way overlong and it's mostly the fault of the shorter tracks and interludes.
