Hear Ye: 1-12-13

1. Intro – The XX  – Made them stars and it is easy to see why, there is a sort of pragmatic darkness to their music, like it only lifts its head above water to nod it from time to time and still there is a still loveliness to it. Like staring at the dead sea in a sun so light it is blinding you – Grade: B+


2.Lose To Win – Fantasia – If new R&B sounded half as good, I have no doubt Solange is a bigger talent than Fantasia, but I simply can’t hear it at all – Grade: A_


3. Boys Keep Swinging – David Bowie – Rowdier than usual, like glam meets Berlin disco – Grade: B


4. Stillness Is The Move – Dirty Projectors – The greatest song to come out of the entire brooklyn movement – Grade: A+


5. Wrected And Divine – Black Veil Brides – Well, they’re half right – Grade: B-


6.Thinkin’ Bout You – Frank Ocean – His masterpiece, if the rest of the album was this great I’d pony up – Grade: A


7. Infinity Guitars – Sleigh Bells – Fairly excellent band breaking obstreperousnes post-apocalypse glam rock – Grade: A-


8. Weeds In The Wheat – People Get Ready – The other PGR –blame spotify – Grade: B


9.a Squandering – People get Ready – Starting the imminesntly crusable Jen – Grade: A-


10. Birds Fly – Cat Cosimai – 70s sounding soul bird – Grade: A-
