Little Things is so pretty. I love the cadence of the verses, where she keeps making you wait for the next line a little bit. Like many of their great songs it just skips a chorus and keeps building and building - the release when she gets to “one step behind you/following you down/I was inside of you/kissing your mouth” is so good. The vocals slightly distorted by the production, and hidden behind that wall of sound. Incredible.

Love the Big Thief album, and "Spud Infinity" was the standout to me on first listen. It's science fiction Bob Dylan.

No Reason was the winner for me. Great album overall. Gets very close to overstaying its welcome with that runtime, though, but I can look past it.

I really really loved the writing in Spud Infinity:

Kiss your body up and down other than your elbows
'Cause as for your elbows, they're on their own
Wandering like a rolling stone
Rubbing up against the edges of experience

Carly fans need to hit up the new Foxes record. Great bubbly electropop. Absolute bangers right here:

I REALLY quite liked Once Twice Melody. I haven't dug a Beach House album since Teen Dream.

Of these last few weeks of releases, I would say one album absolutely deserving of the effusive praise is Dragon New Warm Mountain. I really love the way the band has branched out in texture and songwriting.

One whose praise I am finding hard to understanding is Black Country, New Road. I wasn't awestruck with profundity while listening to it the way a lot of these reviewers apparently were.

Speaking of bands that can do no wrong, Once Twice Melody is fantastic.

I take back what I said in late January. This year is fantastic already. 2-3 AOTY worthy albums out there already.

Yeah I'm through the first two parts of OTM and it's sounding like yet another rock solid gem from one of the best bands of their generation. New Romance immediately grabbed my attention.

As far as music goes, this is the best first two months of a year I've been around to appreciate.

There was a review that referred to Once Twice Melody as a best-of album with only new songs, and I feel it.

LM/Ashley: how was the Weather Station/Cassandra Jenkins show?

Weather Station just rescheduled the NYC postponed show to April, really looking forward to that.

Knee-jerk Beach House rankings:

1. Devotion (this is one of the most uniquely atmospheric albums I've ever heard)
2. 7
3. Bloom
4. Once Twice Melody
5. Teen Dream
6. Depression Cherry
7. Thank Your Lucky Stars
8. S/T

I missed some of Weather Station as I was feeling a little anxious, but I thought both were great in their own ways, with a slight preference towards Cassandra's set.

Glad you liked it (despite missing some of the Weather Station set). I was so entranced by Cassandra when I saw her. I really hope she continues to tour this album a bit more.

I suppose we will get some of the new songs from Weather Station by April, but I do hope they don't cut down on Ignorance songs or some of their older stuff.

Sigur Rós are in the studio (lineup of Jónsi, Goggi, and Kjartan) and are also going on tour in May and June. I don't think I can make it to any of the shows this tour, but I am excited to have a new record from them. It has been awhile.
