I never get tired of the post-HAIM world thing.

7. Daft Punk - Random Access Memories (77 points, 12 votes)

"I'd probably sell my left testicle to see them live." - Friggin' Cobbler
"Scrotum Bloody Scrotum?" - lazarus
"The new single is hot. I love it." - U2inUtah
"Does anyone else get an early, Off the Wall era MJ type vibe?" - namkcuR
"love. is in the air." - zoomerang96
"It crept up on me." - mobvok
"The end of "Contact" is like orgasming with such force that you get propelled into the stratosphere." - Imperor
"Wiping the sweat from my brow and downing another swig of the ice cold Twist Shandy, I take a moment to admire the lather snaking its way around the lines of my tan '71 firebird. The hot July afternoon sun burns my upper thighs and the rumble of kids on Big Wheels fills the humid air. Buttery tunes from the car stereo lubricate my ear drums and compete only with the slapping of water onto the driveway as it cascades from the hose. Leaning through the window and across the passenger seat, I turn the volume knob; my exposed stomach flesh momentarily burns on the still warm door panel. A trio of teenage girls rollerskate past. With my lower lip, I wring the shandy foam from my moustache and I take a deep, satisfying breath. One more sip from the hose and my thirst is quenched in the way only the musty taste of a garden hose can. "she's almost clean" I tell myself." - Jive Turkey
"Should have been a yacht." - LemonMelon

If I make another quote appearance, I'm pretty sure I know which album it will be for and can even guess at the general content.

I'm so glad Fragment of Time exists. Mostly for JT's post.

P. sure I'm the only one that have her album points. If that's the case, it's a fucking travesty.

I'm so glad the new Best Coast EP exists, if only for that Drowned in Sound review opening our eyes to a post-HAIM world.

In a Post-HAIM world, Jive Fan Fiction about Daft Punk goes unnoticed.

5. Kurt Vile - Wakin on a Pretty Daze (87 points, 9 votes)


"I'm glad it wasn't just me, then." - Martha
"I hope that this doesn't suck." - Shouter
"I already have my copies of Wowee Zowee and Terror Twilight." - GAF
"It's so incredibly familiar sounding." - IWasBored
"r u listening 2 goldtone nau?" - LemonMelon
"An edit on some songs would be great." - Friggin' Cobbler
"THANK YOU B&C/RMT, YOU'RE MORE THAN JUST HIPSTERS TO ME." - NSW
"On Letterman tonight." - U2PopMofo
"To be honest, I was somewhat underwhelmed by Kurt Viles' last album, "Smoke Ring For My Halo". There were a couple of songs that completely wowed me ("In My Time" and the title track) but I didn't care as much for the rest of it. To my way of thinking, that album sounded like a talented guy finding his way musically who maybe wasn't there yet. But based on what I saw as Vile's potential from those songs I liked so much, I decided to give his newest one "Wakin On A Pretty Daze" a try.

I'm pretty much wowed by this one from start to finish. It is without a doubt the best thing I have heard this year so far, and one of the more amazing records I've heard in a long time!

This time Vile uses a full band sound throughout, and the lengthy tracks allow the songs to stretch out a bit. And they stretch out into some pretty far-reaching places.

The moods range from a dreamy meditation on love and responsibility ("Too Hard") to an uptempo driver brimming with confidence ("Was All Talk) to beautifully-constructed pop ("Snowflakes Are Dancing" and "Never Run Away") to steady, muscular psychedelia ("Girl Called Alex" and "Air Bud"). There are other goodies mixed in, like the lovely and languid nine-minutes-plus opening track "Wakin On A Pretty Day" and the capstone of the album, the lush ten-minute "Goldtone".

Vile is ably assisted by his band, The Violators, over the course of the album. He and his two compadres create some beautiful sounds, and there are lap steel contributions by guest contributor Farmer Dave Scher in "Girl Called Alex", "Too Hard" and "Pure Pain" that elevate those songs from "good" to "great".

While there is lots of talk about Kurt Vile as a songwriter (and he is very good at that), attention should be paid to his skills as an arranger and musician. There aren't many people around lately who do all those things all at once as well as does, and "Wakin On A Pretty Daze" showcases his considerable talent in astounding fashion. Some people may find his ultra-relaxed vocal style to be an acquired taste, but once you listen to the way he uses it as an instrument in these songs, I believe you will be sold on it. This album is a total package, and for me it's pure satisfaction.

Check out the dreamy passages in "Pure Pain"... most of the last several minutes of "Was All Talk"... the high atmospherics of "Snowflakes Are Dancing"... the instrumental entirety of "Too Hard"... the four-and-a-half-minute mark in "Air Bud" when the music busts back in and then for the minute or so after that... There really is so much ear candy on this record that it's hard to describe it adequately.

"Sometimes when I get in my zone you'd think I was stoned but I never, as they say, touch the stuff. I might be adrift, but I'm still alert, concentrate my hurt into a gold tone... golden tones."

Those are the words of a young musician who is searching for the lost chord. And it in some places on this record, I believe Kurt Vile finds it. Listen to his work, and you will see what I mean." - Mount Temple
