City Center- Redeemer


So stunned about this release.
City Center's debut was a record that came out on Type Records about two years ago. It interested me and I knew that there was more potential in the songwriting aspect of City Center especially in songs like Bleed Blood and Young Diamond. Having randomly seen the new record in stores I bought it on a whim. I had heard nothing about the album, no press, just bought it immediately on the promise that was displayed on the debut. Boy was I right.
The songwriting is actually concise and fully formed. While there are hints and rumbles of clanging and reflecting noise, this is a pop record, and one of the most original I've heard in a while.
While one could write this off as 'indie pop' it's really more than that. Cookies is an anthemic stomper with a guitar solo that shines brightly and simply rocks. On the other hand the song Obvious clatters echoed drums and percussion over heartbreaking strings that flesh out into earnest gutsy magic.
Other tracks play more like beachy tunes meeting a more grating sample based method. I'm not huge on the 'beach scene' that took the internet by storm two years ago, but this is especially pleasing.
Their songs are dramatic when they need to be, exciting and pack a punch.
Redeemer was a shock of a record and I've been constantly listening to it. Spread the word, I've seen little to nothing about it on the web.

Thrill Jockey



Thrill Jockey killed it this week.
Seriously, three great to amazing records in one week.
First off is the new Mountains record.
My first experience with Mountains was their album Choral. I thought it was good, but didn't really feel it.
However maybe I was missing something the first time because their new record is so god damn good. Their new album Air Museum is immersive from the start, taking it's more ambient folk roots into a synth world, spiraling and exploding with burning colors. Not only beautiful, but a complete head trip that's easy to get lost in, especially the closing Live at the Triple Door. In a way this albums does what newer Emeralds and OPN want to do, but in a more humane way, therefore more artistically majestic imo. I love both of those projects a lot, but this easily sidesteps both of their most recent releases, creatin one of the best things I've heard all year.
Next is Liturgy's Aesthethica. A metal album on Thrill Jockey? Whatever i could listen to the song Generation for the rest of my life. A head trip unlike Air Museums; where Air Museum went into space, Liturgy's Aesthethica goes to hell and back. I wouldn't worry about it being too metal, or not metal enough or lame. The album is just really fantastic.
Finally, the Sea and Cake released a new album this week by the name of Moonlight Butterfly . The sea and Cake follow the: if it ain't broke why change it? road again and honestly good for them. The only sidechange I'd say would be the ten minute centerpiece inn keeping. All really great songs, but don't know what to think about the especially New Order ish beatless electronics on Moonlight Butterfly. Just a tad out of place along with the rest of the record but great, and know they do delve into that sound often.
You should go out and grab these all, they're all stunning, especially the mountains record. Serious doings on Thrill Jockey
