Day 507: El mal querer by Rosalía

Clearly, I'm just trying to cram in as many albums as possible as I can before 2019 at this point. Expect a few more obscure cuts after this, and feel free to recommend whatever the fuck you like, the weirder the better.

This... is new territory for me. I've listened to Spanish-language albums for sure, but flamenco pop is NOT what I usually listen to. Do I like it? Well, I can tell it's never gonna be a favorite genre of mine, but this album ain't bad! I'm not sure if or when I'd return to it, but it kept me engaged the whole way through and was full of cool little touches and great melodies. Plus, she's a great singer, can't deny that. Weak closer though.

Definitely not gonna make a top list of mine, but I gotta give credit where credit's due and say this is a good album. I rate based on personal enjoyment, but honestly add 1-1.5 points for a more "objective" rating, or at least what I think an "objective" rating should be.

Best Track: Pienso en tu mirá (Cap.3: Celos)
Rating: 6.5/10

Day 508: Cranberry by Hovvdy

Reminds me a bit of Sebadoh, I guess, but maybe it's the dude's voice? It's not GREAT, but enough tracks here were interesting that I wanna revisit this, so that's... that's a plus.

Also I don't care what the fuck the year end lists say I'm not gonna waste these precious next 96ish hours listening to new fucking Arctic Monkeys or Low when I could give more relevant or otherwise fresher to me artists a shot instead.

Day 509: renaissance man by MIKE (Album Choice: nobody but a lot of my friends like this dude)

The name made me think this was Mike Will Made It after a name change. Guess not.

When this album is on, it's on. When it's not on, it's just lame and boring. Has potential and dude clearly has an ear for atmosphere with some big Screw influence, but overall this feels immature. I hope this guy only improves from here.

Best Track: Mother Of God

Day 510: Loather by goreshit

Hey its Ziggy from The Wire! Except this is from that crappy Larry Clark porno instead.

These first and last tracks are good but not great. Actually I lied, that describes most of this album, but the tracks I mentioned are greater.

Day 511: Loved by KEN mode

Hilariously enough, I saw this band 3 years ago because I was interested in their opener, Pile, yet I've never listened to any of their albums until today.

The most comparable thing to this album I've listened to is the Daughters album, but this is grimier, sloppier and I personally enjoy it a lot more.

Best Track: The Illusion Of Dignity

Day 512: Lush by Snail Mail

This is not Mary Lynn Rajskub.

Why is this on every publication's year end list for 2018 I don't get it. This is perfectly average indie rock and the songs all sound the same to me. Also her vocal tics annoy me a bit though just barely.

Best Track: Pristine

Day 513: K.T.S.E by Teyana Taylor (Album Choice: mead1)

Pretty consistent album, with the only tracks I outright disliked being Rose In Harlem and the agitating closer WTP, and I liked some of the samples in the latter. Are there other Kanye projects to check out (also I barely noticed his verse lol)? I'm not listening to the white power aryan girl even if she denounced those fools.

Huh, it seems the tracks I disliked are people's favorites. Ah well.

Day 514: Time by Louie Cole (Album Choice: Jonlovesddr)

1. The ratio of soft, dreamier songs to more upbeat tracks is WAY too high
2. This album is too long

Cut out about half of the slower tracks and this might make my top 10. The good tracks are bouncy good fun.

Best Track: Weird Part Of The Night

Day 515: Chapel Perilous by Gnod

I swear every newer noise rock album I've heard in recent years is trying to go for that crushing Swans style, which isn't a bad thing but where is my acidic Brainiac-esque noise? Where's the weirdness of Guerilla Toss (since they quit making noise) or the goofiness of Cows? Some variety goddamnit.

Anyways, the first track and last track on this album are fucking phenomenal. The other tracks are filler bullshit. Ho-hum but luckily they make up the majority of the album.

Best Track: Donovan's Daughters
Rating: 6/10 (this would be a 9/10 EP)

Day 516: Sekundenschlaf by тпсб

Copying and pasting that title was a pain in the ass.

These first couple tracks match up with ubering in a highway tunnel at dusk really, really well.

Outside of that not, this isn't all that memorable even if a few tracks are pretty dope. I expect this will hold up well to repeat listens, at least, although two didn't make me notice anything significant.

It's not that the vocals were bad, they were adequate, but I might actually have gotten more enjoyment out of this if it were fully instrumental. Also I'm starting to think the next good review will be 550. Or later. Or maybe never who gives a shit lol

Day 521: The Visitors by ABBA

I decided to listen to this randomly because

A. There was a random RYM thread about Dancing Queen which I unironically like even after being stuck hearing it every day I worked this summer.
2. I see this album on a lot of "most depressing albums ever" or "top heartbreak albums" lists

Aaaand... it's not that good. A few cuts are fairly sad, yeah, particularly during the second half of the original track listing, but this is mostly just the same brand of disco-pop from the few hits of theirs I've heard, except not nearly as catchy. Very meh on this.

Best Track: Should I Laugh Or Cry? or The Day Before You Came including bonus tracks
