Actually yeah, I wasn't entirely sure about them from the singles but on first listen the album is really really good.

Minus the video, that doesn't sound very retro at all. Very Englishy Vampire Weekend imo.

That is one hell of an ugly band.

Liking this Cold Pumas album, good and krauty but in quite a spiky sort of way

veronica falls still sound like veronica falls (tho somewhat cheerier), fine by me.

can't get enough of the new people's temple LP at the moment. it sits somewhere between back from the grave and early flying nun. if that even begins to make sense.

The Melodys Echo Chamber album is cracking, like a fuzzier, more rocking Broadcast.

Dunno if this is the right place for this, but it's quite lovely.

There's no Cloud Nothings thread, so I guess I'll post this here: I think Attack on Memory might be my album of the year pick, and I'm trying to come to terms with that since it seems silly to to throw my vote to this inconsequential little faux-punk album in a year that had so many big, important, great albums. But if I'm honest with myself, I listened to Attack on Memory more than any of them, and that might have to be the bar

FIDLAR - please explain me the hype, cause there's nothing new going on around here:

HOOKS FOR DAYS. I hate everything about this band but the hooks. The hooks are enough.
― alpine static, Tuesday, 4 December 2012 18:22 (seven years ago) link
granted, Cheap Beer is not their hookiest song
i dunno, man, they just have it, if you ask me
by the sea album meets expectations

Finding great stuff so late in the year always throws me off, but this is great stuff.
