As i told you in advance few weeks ago, September was an amazing month (musically speaking), one of the best since i’ve started this blog. Hope you will enjoy!
Arctic Monkeys – AM (Indie Rock)
Fifth work for this british band always on Domino Records like the previous ones. They try to improve the quality of their last -less fortunate- works like Suck It and See and Humbug, but we all know that the quality level of their first work is unreachable. In my opinion this LP is better than the last one. Freewheeling.
MGMT – MGMT (Indie Pop, Indie Electronic, New Psychedelia)
Third work for this amazing NYC band. Probably a little bit less intense than the previous -amazing- work but still very enjoyable. When you listen to them it seems you are in another dimension (one of the best things about music and about the artists creativity). Atmospheric.
TrentemØller – Lost (Electronic, Downbeat)
New interesting work for this talented danish electronic performer. His last work LP was full of remixes, this time he mixed new songs but also with some interesting collaborations (Kazu Makino from Blonde Redhead, like in this video below). Cerebral.
Nine Inch Nails – Hesitation Marks (Alternative Rock, Industrial Rock)
I didn’t really believe Nine Inch Nails were going to retire (even if i went to watch them live for their ‘last’ tour, just in case). After his parallel project involving his wife (How To Destroy Angels), Trent Reznor came back with the original band and this amazing LP. Intense.
Placebo –Loud Like Love (Alternative Rock, Neo Glam, Punk Pop)
After 4 years from their previous work, Placebo come back with an intense work. They try to go back to their beginning style, but still with an electric (glam) touch, characteristic of their music evolution. Confident.
Goldfrapp – Tales of Us (Alternative/Indie Rock, Electronica)
What to expect from one of the most changeable contemporary artists ? An intense, unique and amazing work. It just depends on which Goldfrapp style do you like more (personally, all of them). Elegant.
Nightmares On Wax –Feelin’ Good (Electronic, Downtempo)
Published on Warp Records, this new work from is very enjoyable. It’s difficult to categorize it in a single style, since they like to mix different ones. Energetic.
Glasvegas – When Tv Turns To Static (Indie Rock)
Third work from this scottish (no they are not from US) band, two years from the previous one. Don’t expect something sophisticated, but easy listening and simple rock songs. Raucous.
Mùm – Smilewound (Indie Electronic, Electronica)
We are getting used of talented artists coming from the little island in the middle of nowhere called Iceland. Somebody would probably dislike their mellow style (perfect for a rainy day, but can be depressing also), but in this new work they also pump up the beat (like in this song i’ve chosen). Reflective.
Clark – Feast/Beast (Electronic)
Published (again) on Warp Records, this double LP of remixes is great. First because he chooses great songs to remix (from Amon Tobin to Nathan Fake), second because of his high quality touch. Quirky.
The Stepkids – Troubadour (Alternative/Indie Rock, Neo Soul)
Coming from Connecticut this interesting band just published their second album that i would define as a nice psychedelic funk work. Trippy.
Chvrches – The Bones of What You Believe (Synth Pop, Indie Electronic)
Debut LP for this scottish band that started their career supporting Passion Pit’s 2012 UK tour. Now they started to ‘walk alone’ and i think they can have a good career. Exuberant.
See you next month!
