October Best Releases

As often happens, after an amazing musically-speaking month, a more queit one comes out.  But, for a music-addicted like me, i always find amazing works to share. Look at them!

Pearl Jam – Lightining Bolt (Alternative Rock, Grunge)

What can i say about PJ? Twenty years of career, amazing works, Eddie Vedder’s voice…They can be old style, but…what a style! Visceral.

Four Tet –Beautiful Rewind (Indie Electronic)

After two years after Hebden version of Fabriclive, a new whole Four Tet work, full, as usual, of amazing atmosphere, interesting collaborations (Thom Yorke) and cool sounds. I truly believe you’ll like it. Suspenseful.

Gesaffelstein – Aleph (Electro, Techno)

No he’s not german, austrian or dutch, just a french guy who play live amazing sets and now published his first (and fantastic) work! Go to see some of his sets, and watch this movie-video, very nice. Scratching.

Daniel Avery – Drone Logic (Indie Electronic, IDM)

You probably don’t know him but if i say Death in Vegas, sounds familiar? Yes he’s one of their brains (musician and voice). This solo work is much faster than DIV works, but still hypnotic in some of his tracks. Kinetic.

Kid606 – Happiness (Electronic, Brackbeat)

We all know the talent (at least i do) of this venezuelan born guy. His electronic influences change in every LP so you don’t know what to expect. Volatile.

Russian Circles – Memorial (Post Rock, Alternative Rock)

Despite the name, this american band just published their 5th work. As the previous ones, very good tracks and amazing vibes even without words. In my opinion one of the best post rock bands at the moment. Tense.

Korn –The Paradigm Shift (Alternative Metal, Post Grunge)

Ok we agree that they are not ‘hard’ like their previous works, but they can still be pleasant. And this LP i think is also better than some recent one. Angst-Ridden.

Lee Ranaldo & The Dust –Last Night On Earth (Indie Rock)

One of many parallel Sonic Youth musicians projects came out, this time with the collaboration between Lee Ranaldo and The Dust (Steve Shelley’s parallel band). Softer than Thurston Moore’s Chelsea Light Moving project but very nice and enjoyable (with some intense guitar riffs though). Freewheeling.

Yuck – Glow & Behold (Indie Rock)

Second work for this renovated UK band; some of the musicians left and new ones came in. Result -fortunately- is still a pretty album like their first one. Exuberant.
