So I keep listening to Reflektor and I unabashedly think it might be the best song of the last couple years or so. It's the boldest thing they've done to date (Sprawl II being the now-second boldest) and is not tiring no matter how much I listen to it.

It sounds exactly like you would expect a James Murphy produced but not especially inspired Arcade Fire track with pointless David Bowie backing vocals to sound.

I just discovered Felix Hagan and the Family. I can't even think how to describe it. It's theatrical (and self-aware) and entertaining and catchy and you should listen to it.

You can listen to their upcoming EP (out on Sept. 27) in full here, but I'd highly recommend watching some of their videos on youtube to get the full experience:

I figured Pitchfork would either be dismissive and give Lorde a ~6 or really positive and give her a ~7 and they went with the positive one. :unsmith:

This is an opinion that baffles me, but fair enough. You don't like "From a Motel 6" or "Nowhere Near"? What do you think of Electr-O-Pura?

Electr-O-Pura is good. I'm just always blown away at how good and how consistent MISWM is compared to it's critical/internet reputation. I assume people either haven't heard it or only listen to it once after reading about how average it is. It and I Can Hear...are the definitive YLT albums.

Hi I don't venture in here much but is anyone talking at all about Joanna Newsom's new track? I doubt it's gonna sway any new listeners but it's a hell of a song with the kind of lyrical complexity you expect from her more long-form songs packed into a sweet little ditty. Her voice is a little less thin than in the last album also, liking how it's changing for the better. Also, that climax at the end, my goodness

Great at being garbage.

Is this coming from the position of someone who just doesn't like JN or did you not like the direction? There's at least 6 or 7 uncontroversially amazing songs on there. Less obtuse, more beautiful, all sorts of thematic tangles - it's seriously amazing and dwarfs the first two records.

What are these 6-7 songs? I've got one of her albums, y's? I think? And it's just a loving complicated mess. I'd like to know what songs a fan thinks are amazing and check them out.

Have One On Me is way less obtuse opaque than Ys but that might be disguised a bit by it being a triple album. It's really more of a double but breaking it in three leaves you with more digestible 40 minute chunks.

I wouldn't say I dislike her, but I am not on the hype train as others are either. I'll listen to her stuff, but honestly her kind of music just gets me down too hard. I want up-beat fast paced rock/punk-rock when it comes to indie music.

There's a youtube of her playing a show with her local indie rock band and her vocals pretty much don't work at all, but I can't stop watching it because they're kinda cool and having so much gosh darn fun just playing for their friends.
