Day 1057: Madres by Sofia Kourtesis

Like the last album I reviewed, I wasn't immediately floored by this release. I enjoyed every track on it to at least some degree, but I wasn't in love with the album as a whole. Where this one differs is that repeat listens of Miss Diamond had no effect on my opinion whatsoever, whereas extra time spent on this collection of songs revealed something else to me.

Unfortunately, I don't know what that revelation might be or how to put it into words except "this is better than I initially gave it credit for". Really, I think I just have come to appreciate the fact that not a single song here feels superfluous, along with how well-done the sequencing is. Also, those vocal bits are truly ethereal, with some parts reminding me of the first time I ever listened to Kelly Lee Owens whose 2020 release remains my favorite of that year (and not just because I ate ass to it). Is this as good as Inner Song? No, but I wouldn't say it's comparable to that at all - instead I'd just say this is a strong, confident release that deserves more than just a passing glance.

Day 1058: Everyone's Crushed by Water From Your Eyes (Album Choice: robertsona)

It only hit me a few weeks ago that I saw these guys exactly 362 days ago from today, when they were the second opener for the second time I saw Palm. RIP to that band, gonna miss them as they made two of my all-time favorite albums, one of which is my top 2022 release. That being said, considering how long it took them to write enough content for said 2022 release despite using a chunk of stuff, or at least two songs that they ended up using as singles, that was written and played live around the time of their most popular and most mid album (2018's Rock Island) perhaps it's for the best and we'll get to see some even better solo work from them down the line. Or perhaps they'll all fade into obscurity, who knows?

But this isn't me reviewing Palm! My predominant recollection of the Water For Your Eyes set in 2022 was that it was extremely abrasive and surprisingly heavy for a two-piece with no drummer or bassist. I thought they were cool but I was more into the way their soundscapes filled the room and made my skin vibrate than anything songwriting-wise, as the songs dragged on and on and on. I double-checked and they played 4 songs over a half-hour. That might work if you're a stoner metal outfit or ambient musician or something, but these guys are supposed to be hipster pop.

As a result, this really went against my expectations, as it's 9 songs and just barely over a half-hour total, with only two songs reaching past the 4-minute mark. And also, it definitely IS hipster pop with elements of noise, instead of what sounded like a noise/drone experiment with the slightest consideration to composition. Despite not being nearly as crushing as they were on stage, this actually manages to sound fuller due to the programming and mixing allowing for the minimal drum programming and low-end to come through past anything noisy here.

So I clearly enjoy this band more recorded than live, but what do I think overall? Well, I like it. A pretty good amount at that. The first few tracks are easily my least favorite and initially left a bit of a bad taste in my mouth as it gave me the impression that this project was drenched in irony, but that was a misreading and those songs were earnestly lame. Starting around track 4 this thing picks up a LOT and for such a short release they manage to cover a lot of ground - walls of feedback are all over this thing, but some songs are straight indie pop, some are more rhythmic and dance-y (though I would hate to see the crowd at one of their shows try to dance), and hell the last song sounds like fucking Man Or Astro-man? or something. And as a bonus, the longest track here, which is the penultimate cut so I assume intended to be the emotional climax/closer, is fucking gorgeous.

Now if only those first 3 songs were better.

Best Track: 14
Rating: 8/10

Day 1059: It's the End of the World, But It's a Beautiful Day by Thirty Seconds to Mars

At first I wanted to review the absolute worst album of the year according to the RateYourMusic bottom charts, but the #1 spot was taken by Tom McDolan and I do not currently have the desire to listen to a racist. Then #2 was Sixixnineine and I do not currently have the desire to listen to a pedophile. Then I just didn't feel like listening to whatever 3 and 4 were and #5 was Lil Pump 2 which I already determined was fairly bad but not totally irredeemable. Nothing with Pump Rock x Heavy Metal could ever be a flat 0-1/10 that song is just too good.

Regardless, I have way too many memories of this band and their fans from my younger years, and absolutely none of these memories are positive in any way whatsoever. Also, my excuse for not listening to Pedophile Ronald McDonald is no longer valid considering that I forgot that this was Jared Leto's project... Hey, with all the 4+ word band names from this era, a mix-up is unsurprising.

Anyways, for the most part, I don't think this is THAT much worse than their peak popularity stuff, but it's still pretty fucking bad lol. For the most part it's incredibly bland electropop, but there's something about the way it's performed and/or produced that makes it quickly grow irritating. There's like 2 or 3 tracks that I'd go as nice as saying "that was nothing more than a mid pop song" but the majority of this just pisses me off, even though it shouldn't merit such a strong reaction since it's also so damn uninteresting.

Maybe my disdain for this is a subconcious reaction to the fact that I'm fucking listening to Jared Leto.

I don't really want to write any more.

Day 1060: Census Designated by Jane Remover

I wanted to like this, and maybe I would've if these songs weren't all way longer than they needed to be... But honestly probably not, for every element of this album that I enjoy or at least think is cool and/or creative, there's another thing that's just irritating. If you condensed these songs all down to half length then you'd just be barraged with annoyances twice as fast, and if you cut out said annoyances entirely you'd basically just have a completely different genre of music. Credit where credit is due, this is at the very least a very realized and very individual expression of one's artistic desires.

Gonna stop here because the more I write the more likely I am to be murdered by some terminally online late zoomer with 2000s envy.

Day 1062: Objects Without Pain by Great Falls

And here we have another album where I can clearly tell that it is absolutely a triumph for the artist in terms of nailing the exact sound they wanted to make, while also not "clicking" with whatever they're going for from a personal, subjective standpoint at all. There's so many elements in here that should be exactly what I love - aggressive noise rock that doesn't let its (very obvious) artsy side overtake the whole "rock" part of it (or the noise part), sludgy guitars that fill your whole skull up with their tone, structural experimentation that comes off as refreshing and innovative while remaining unpretentious to the core, et cetera et cetera.

This really is just a weird one to score, and as a result I feel as if it's almost folly to say much more. This album isn't for me, but it's definitely well-done enough that I'm positive that someone who is a bit more in love with this band's specific style/genre mishmash/tone/atmosphere/whatever would be able to praise this much more

Day 1063: Microworlds by CloZee

This is a very solid collection of songs that is decent enough listened to while working on headphones but is very obviously going to be much more enjoyable heard blasting from a dark stage. I feel as if CloZee could make something more home-listener oriented if she wanted to, but I mean, this is still pretty good? And since the money is in touring I assume that's her focus, so I'm just glad this seems at least modestly coherent as a singular work.

Best Track: Antares
Rating: 7/10, but her closing performance at EZoo 2022 was an easy 9.5/10, and shame on all the basic Asian bros and basic Asian bitches who went and saw Midtin Garrix play the exact same setlist he had been using for at least a year prior. When I saw him perform an identical or nearly-identical set in May 2022 it was like a 5/10. I laugh even harder at the Asians who saw that Garrix set, then bought tickets for his official EZoo afterparty in Brooklyn for over $100, including a handful who had already paid $60-80 for other afterparties. Keep in mind that's BEFORE Ubers are factored in - which, going from uptown Manhattan down to Brooklyn, would cost like $80-90+ due to surges after EZoo gets out. When a group of like 30 Asians told me about their plan and tried to get me to join in, I told them how bro played the same set at EZoo as he did in DC that May, and told them that a quick Google search indicated that his Brooklyn show was going to be the same set they had just watched less than 2 hours prior. They all said that I was wrong, and riddle me this: what, WHAT, did they bitch about the next day? Well actually, they bitched about a multitude of annoyances that were the fault of Brooklyn Mirage, a place that I always shit on for their various sketchy, unethical and/or mafia-esque practices, but what was the only complaint they had that was Garrix's fault?! I'm sorry if I've already told you this story, but right now I'm just writing this because it's mad funny that the rating section is the longest part.

This on the other hand, I listened to when it was still relatively new, didn't write anything, listened to it again a few days ago, still didn't write anything and didn't have the motivation to, and just gave it a THIRD listen and still didn't feel like writing anything.

Day 1065: SAVED! by Reverend Kristin Michael Hayter

This is a well-crafted, deeply emotional piece of art that deserves all the praise it's been getting, although it definitely is a step down from the more obviously personal and harrowing Sinner Get Ready. However, there are times when the tape effects get a bit too over-the-top for their own good and man, I just can't imagine listening to this more than a few times a year. I respect this more than I enjoy it.

You know, I was thinking about how one of the next times I do a review, before the end of the year, I want to include scores for the 2023 albums I've heard that I didn't even bother to write anything for when I listened to them.

Given the sad state of these reviews now, what's the fuckin difference?

Day 1069: No Scavenging by Artifact Memory

Starting off 2024 with a 2024 album review! At least, that's what I wanted to do, but I can't write anything about this thing other than the fact that it is indeed is a "sound collage" album and the fact that it did nothing for me, except occasionally make me wonder if this was an attempt to be a meme.

That being said, here comes my ratings of 2023 albums for which I didn't bother to write even this much for. Most of these I listened to multiple times, but not all of them. A lot of these I listened to forever ago, forgot what they sounded like, and relistened again within the past couple of months. Others I wrote down a score a while ago and haven't heard since before this fall. Whatever. I also completely randomized this order so nobody would be able to guess the order I listened to these in.

Day 1070: Wall of Eyes by not-Radiohead

I remember back in November 2022 these guys played one of the few venues in NYC that I have yet to go to, same one where friends of mine saw Dethklok and BABYMETAL, and I wanted to go but all the tickets on resale were over $100 which I refused to pay so I saw The Band Formerly Known As Viet Cong instead for like $20. Then in July they played a bigger venue and sales were so bad that they gave away like hundreds of tickets for free, so I snagged a pair, then realized I couldn't make it as I already had obligations to take my buddy to a punk show then to see CFCF and Cut Copy play DJ sets right after, so I ended up re-giving those away. So I've still never seen these guys play. Or Radiohead for that matter. Oh well.

Anyways, this is easily my favorite project from ol' droopy eyes and the one other Radiohead member involved since In Rainbows. Reception seems to be pretty split on whether this is an improvement or a downgrade from their 2022 debut but I think the two albums are too different to really compare. But dang, the emotional content here hit me hard, a feeling that is only aided by how theatrical and crescendo-heavy every single song here is. Great start to major/mainstream releases for the year.

Best Track: balls

Day 1071: Girl With No Face by Allie X

At this point, I basically only post here when there's an album I hope to get second opinions on from one of the 3 people that still read this. This has overtaken not-Radiohead for the current #1 album of the year on RYM but I know for a fact that it's not gonna last long on the throne. This is 100% not the type of music that internet nerds will admit to enjoying more than sadboi indie like Wall of Eyes, but it's something I personally enjoy more in this particular case. Lots of fun, no bad tracks, and the perfect length at just shy of 45 minutes. I don't have any complaints!

Eventually I'll dump my ratings for albums I've listened to since January that I can't be assed to write at least 2 sentences for, even though nobody cares.

Best Track: Off With Her Tits (there's several other competitors but I'm picking this one solely so I can write that phrase here)
