The Mountain Goats - Sinaloan Milk Snake Song:  Dug out the ol' Zopilote Machine again and oh I miss the backing vocals.

They Might Be Giants - Nanobots

blog 2015/07/14 - it doesn't show because you're not looking

Always have some place to be safe in:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20150714.zip



Best Girl Athlete - He's Calling:  Oh waltz with me across the floor!

Buffy Saint Marie - Working For The Government (A Tribe Called Red 2015 Mix):  HOOOOOOLY FUCKING SHIT THIS AMAAAAAAZINGGGGGG

Father John Misty - Bored In The USA:  How much smirk can a Garfunkel throwback brim with?

Hundreds - Ten Headed Beast (Radio Edit):  Blissful and perfectly stated.  everything about this is in perfect balance.

Joey Bada$$ - Born Day (AquariUS):  Dip back in to those oh so sweet organ grooves.

Joyce Moreno - Aldeia De Ogum (Psychemagik Remix):  I’m all bubbley for this one and those slight Stereolab undertones.

Kanye West - Only One (BLUEfiveone Remix):  OK OK OK this one is kind of sweet.

Katie Herzig - Free My Mind (RAC Remix):  I've had the original up here, but I think we all know now that I love a perfect RAC tweak.

Ought - Habit
Ought - Pleasant Heart
Ought - The Weather Song:  Wow, what an amazing surprise.  I missed this in 2014 and it fills a spot in my heart I didn't know was empty.  More Than Any Other Day is a staggeringly exciting album, full of so many sounds that make you forget that first time you heard Fugazi because fuck that, times changes, you grow up, and there is always new glory to be found.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Panda Coast - For Me:  I'm assuming this is that rare Panda Bear / Best Coast crossover?

Rubblebucket - Waiting Room (Fugazi cover):  Sacrilicious?

The Acid - Basic Instinct:  Great little unassuming electropop.

blog 2015/07/07 - no one is the water

but this is how it all shakes down:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20150707.zip



Castro - Twitch ft Branko & Pot:  GET THAT RATCHET GOING!

Jfm - Eenuff
Jfm - Fall Asleep With Candles Lit:  There is something so OFF about these tracks and that's why I love them.

Jlin - Expand:  Oh hey another band name that looks like someone sneezed on the keyboard (side-eyeing you Jfm…)  but you keep being awesome, k?

John Carpenter - Night (Theatre Of Delays Remix):  I think we all know this needed to happen.

John Coltrane Quartet - Alabama:  Throwback Tuesdays!  I guess?  Been digging on this one a bunch on repeat.

Kid Crème - Sugarman:  After the success of that Searching for Sugarman doc I was wondering when I'd stumble on some house remixes.  And here we are!

Kid Smpl - Vaccine:  Ooooo that grind is so good.

Mount Eerie - Books:  From the new album Sauna!

Mount Kimbie - Maybes (James Blake Remix):  A classic IDM track in my opinion, this little bit of Blake glaze serves it well.

Restorations - Separate Songs:  Ahhh so down with that slight gravely east-coast barroom sound

Sampha - Indecision:  GAH I AM DEAD.  This is so so so good.  It's like a grandiose electropop song was done as a beautiful acoustic piano rendition and ooooooo I hope someone remixes this, it is so beautiful.

Serocee - Propellah:  BOUNCE!

Tep No - A Different You ft Jessica Hart
Tep No - Meant To Be:  That saxophone though.  No really.

The Go! Team - The Scene Between:  Awww yes, the kids ARE all right!

The Wax Girl - Daylight
The Wax Girl - Nuclear Winter:  Smooth that roll away.

blog 2015/06/23 - this all prevents it from happening so fast

but we cheat and do it to ourselves slowly:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20150623.zip



Cadenza x FEM FEL - Electric Blocks:  This is the deep big room feel that I want all night.

Dead Land - Opium Clouds
Dead Land - Walking With Death (Eternal Exit):  2 tracks from Death Has Made It's Peace With Me, love the drift of postrock swoon.

Kin Cayo - Shot The Sun Down:  Dial down the pop from Passion Pit levels to something manageable, thanks.

King Tuff - Eyes of the Muse:  Oh gloried 60s vibe!

Little Daylight - Be Long (Twice As Nice Remix):  Electropop plod along!

Major Lazer & DJ Snake - Lean On ft MO:  Pop classic up there with Get Free in terms of being an instant classic.

Northumbria - The Ocean Calls us Home:  Drone it out in to the skies!

Oh Wonder - Lose it (Nubbz Remix):  Oh the smoothness.

Partynextdoor - Juss Know ft Travis Scott:  I can't help but think of a phrase like "I remember everything" as a horrific reveal in the scariest of psychological horror films.  Also, dat bass.

Perseus - Shadow of the Beast:  Can we agree to call housey electrop GloryHole?  I think that's a swell name for a genre.

Teeth Engraved With The Names Of The Dead - Lacerate:  Sweet digestible noisedrone from Starving the Fires (Pt. I)

Viet Cong - Bunker Buster
Viet Cong - Continental Shelf
Viet Cong - Silhouettes:  From the self-titled 2014 debut…

Machinefabriek - The Measures Taken Part IV:  The Measures Taken is a wholly satisfying world of textural ambience.  Recommended.

Made In Heights - Skylark Interabang!:  It always boggles my mind that every Sufjan song hasn't been looped out the wazzooo because OMG there is so much instant emotion to tap.

Max Greening - Induction Sun
Max Greening - Koi:  Waves wash across everything from Stereoscope and back.

Monty C. Benjamin - Pass The Time:  More sweetness as we approach our inevitable end of times.

Mura Masa - Lotus Eater:  awwwwwwwwwwwwww sheeeeeeeeeeeeet this is so damn hot.

Petra Glynt - Of This Land
Petra Glynt - Sour Paradise:  Intense and gorgeous.

Phantogram - Fall In Love (NEUS Remix):  Aces on the electropop formula.

blog 2015/06/10 - gentle piano intro

metal slag defeated:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20150610.zip



Baauer - Promises ft Fetty Wap & Dubbel Dutch:  The slick restraint on here just let's you bounce twice as high.

Homeboy Sandman - I
Homeboy Sandman - My Brothers:  I just got around to listening to the Kool Herc: Fertile Crescent EP and it's got a galloping goofiness and attention to detail that I am really enjoying.  This goes back to 2013, but still, RECOMMENDED.

Iron and Wine - Next To Paradise:  Taken from a 2013 Record Store Day 7".

James Blackshaw & Lubomyr Melnyk - Satevis
James Blackshaw & Lubomyr Melnyk - Tascheter:  The Watchers is a dizzying swirl.  I wish they would play this kind of stuff at my local spa, fuck that pan flute with birds tripe.

Lackluster - Cull Streak (Sense Mix)
Marumari - Botany (Lacklustermx):  These 2 are from the Merck Package, a pile of ahhhh lackluster Lackluster?   Some goodness when dug in to, but not a lot caught my ears, sadly.

Romare - Taste of Honey (From the City)
Romare - Your Love (You Give Me Fever):  Did I mention how amazxing Romare is?  These are from the wonderful Love Songs: Part One EP.

Vijay Iyer Trio - Break Stuff
Vijay Iyer Trio - Starlings
Vijay Iyer Trio - Taking Flight:  It's not super insta-love, but the new album Break Stuff has really grown on me, straddling between that latenight accessibility and gentle convention pushing composition.

blog 2015/06/02 - I'll never have you

But hey we grasp at illusion anyways:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20150602.zip



Big Brave - A Song for Foxes:  Psych folk rock like this is the sound of love, a glorious heart of shimmer from Feral Verdure.

Das Rad - Radiator:  whut.

LabField - Page 55
LabField - Straight A's In Constant Sorrow
LabField - Temporary Reasons:  Bucket of Songs is one of those special albums where the textural swirl is all so much that you just want to wrap it around you and descend downward.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Modest Mouse - Lampshades On Fire
Modest Mouse - Of Course We Know
Modest Mouse - The Ground Walks, With Time In A Box:  Strangers To Ourselves is a quality Modest Mouse album that delivers the Modest Mouse goods that you demand as a Modest Mouse fan.  Recommended.

Panda Bear - Crosswords:  I kept it around for a long time but the final verdict on Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper is that it doesn't fill up any hole in my life, save for a few tracks.  Time to move past.

Purity Ring - Bodyache
Purity Ring - Push Pull
Purity Ring - Stillness in Woe:  The second PR album Another Eternity is all sorts of joy.  Get it.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Rafael Anton Irisarri - Will Her Heart Burn Anymore 00
Rafael Anton Irisarri - Will Her Heart Burn Anymore 22:  This new Will Her Heart Burn Anymore EP is full of fuzzed out textural ambience and I love it.

MP3 blog 2015/05/26

blog 2015/05/26 - you can't help hear but you can wait alongside

Nothing but heart, nothing but time:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20150526.zip



Adventure Club - Gold (Moyo Remix):  This is all ridiculous electropop happiness

Daktyl - Stay ft Dive Deep:  Slick bass, bro.

Ingram Marshall - September Canons:  Long strings from September Canons.

Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith - Sundry:  Bouncing little balls represent the oscillations that rule your life.  From the album Euclid.

Metz - Actetate
Metz - Kicking A Can Of Worms
Metz - Wait In Line:  It is so refreshing to finally get that Jesus Lizard comeback album we always wanted!  Oh wait, Metz?  II?  Whatever.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Nosaj Thing - Cold Stares ft Chance The Rapper
Nosaj Thing - Don't Mind Me ft Whoarei
Nosaj Thing - Medic:  Fated is full of good things and great ideas, I just wish most of them were longer.  It reads like a beat tape in search of a performer when it really doesn't need to be, because the ideas mostly all stand strong alone.  RECOMMENDED.

Open Mike Eagle - Dark Comedy Late Show
Open Mike Eagle - Ziggy Starfish (Anti-Anxiety Raps):  2 tracks I dig from the A Special Episode Of EP.

Strom Noir - Firn
Strom Noir - Morena:  Glaciology gives you the satisfying drones that kids really go for and parents know are nutritious.

Valise - Don't Forget Me:  Indie pop galore.

Violent Femmes - Good For / At Nothing
Violent Femmes - Happy New Year Next Year:  What. The Fuck.  What the actual fuck?  Is this real life?  Is there suddenly a new Violent Femmes EP out?  What?  I mean sure, I guess I know the answer:  Yes, the Happy New Year EP is here.  And it sounds…  Like the Femmes:  jangling, under produced, and always a bit ramshackled and slightly off key.  I was ready to hate this and dang, I kind of like it, and it's growing.  I'm shocked, shocked I know.  RECOMMENDED.

MP3 blog 2015/05/12

blog 2015/05/12 - the gift is the swell

And even that soon dissipates:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20150512.zip



Aluna George - Outlines (Danny T Rework):  Start it up with the smooth garage.

Chromatics - Blue Moon:  More intense than you can imagine.  Dog whistles, amiright?

Darondo - Didn't I (Dave Allison Rework):  Gots to be funky.

Demdike Stare - Dyslogy:  Those hits are all Ken Ishii core for me and it takes me back.

Gal Costa - Tuareg (dîP Edit):  Like Uber, but for grooves that last 10 hours.

Hop Along - Buddy in the Parade
Hop Along - I Saw My Twin
Hop Along - The Knock:  New Hop Along album "Painted Shut"!!!  I'm still chewing on this one, so many great songs.  Recommended.

Jr. Hi - Secrets ft The Weeknd (GXNXVS Remix):  Thick synth sits darn well with Weeknder dude.

Listener - Eyes To The Ground For Change
Listener - Not Today:  Time Is A Machine is a massive adventure that excites the brain from start to finish.  I think every Hold Steady fan should branch in to an album like this as well.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Marten Hørger - Deep Inside:  DEPP INSIDE, JOHNNY DEPP DEPP INSIDE

Slow Magic - Waited 4 U (ODESZA Remix):  Over the top bassplosion, like chillout with a dubstep flair.

Stick Figure - Stay With Me:  Glorious pop, hold your hands high!

The Rebel Light - Strangers:  Rapture!

Twiggy Frostbite - Ahai:  One of those great examples of a band's name which pretty much resolutely invokes the music…

Weaves - Shithole:  Yes OK ok okOK

Woodro Skillson - Clear My Throat:  so balling.

Oh and hey did you see I released a new DJ mix of dream beats?   http://djcpi.blogspot.ca/2015/05/cpi-no-more-human-friends.html



Braille - Life's A Bitch:  I am shuddering through the echoes of the 80s thunderous highs.

Death Kneel - Perfume Bath:  I think we should all rock French Farewell and sing like this in to the shower head.

Dva - Zoppe:  I have no idea what is going on here and assum

FL - Cameras ft AP (Treyy G Remix):  There was probably an executive decision to edit in more "UNH"s

Romare - Prison Blues
Romare - Roots
Romare - Work Song:  New album Projections is all types of dope.  So much goodness.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Run The Jewels - Bust NO Moves ft Cuz
Run The Jewels - Pew Pew Pew ft Dj Qbert:  RTJ RSD!  (Record Store Day) flips us some b-sides.

Slumberjack - Felon (Nem0 Edit):  Hit all the buttons on your sampler at the same time and vomit red bull on the dance floor.

Suuns and Jerusalem In My Heart - 3attam Babey

The Tallest Man on Earth - Beginners
The Tallest Man on Earth - Darkness of the Dream
The Tallest Man on Earth - Timothy:  Oh gosh this is like coming home to an old friend and having the warmest of evenings together.  Dark Bird Is Home makes me swoon.  Get it and get cuddling.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

They Might Be Giants - Erase:  I’m not going to recommend the new TMBG album.  I wouldn't really recommend any of them past Factory Showroom that aren't kids records.  But hey, I like this single.

MP3 blog 2015/04/28

blog 2015/04/28 - another one sparks the rage

again and again:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20150428.zip


Christian Löffler - Nordkap
Christian Löffler - York:  The new York EP gives us more slabs of the smooth bliss we desire so much!

Death Grips - Big Dipper
Death Grips - Inanimate Sensation
Death Grips - Pss Pss
Death Grips - Up My Sleeves:  The Powers That B is exhausting.  Listen to these tracks, 2 from each disc.  ARE YOU NOT AMUSED?  No.  You are not amused, you are exhausted.  You should have a nap.

Dream Beach - Missing Peace:  GOOD MORNING, CUTIE!

Greys - Use Your Delusion:  If Anything is from 2014 but this is all Seattle core 90s mess.

Son Lux - Among The Living
Son Lux - Give In And Give Out:  HOLY SHIT NEW SON LUX EP!!!!!!  Highly recommended.

Squarepusher - Baltang Ort
Squarepusher - Stor Eiglass:  Have you been shrugging at the virtuoso bass solos of recent?  Damogen Furies is an album that gets back to the IDM fury.  The bass and drums are all skittery and intense and probably what you've been waiting for.  Only thing missing?  Perhaps some moments of reprieve and a bit more of a cooing seduction.

Sylvan Esso - Dress:  OK final taste from the self-titled album from 2014.  There is lots of really juicy bits on this album, so many nummy little bits.  I'll go out on the limb:  RECOMMENDED.

The Notwist - Close To The Glass
The Notwist - From One Wrong Place To The Next
The Notwist - Run Run Run:  Close To The Glass has been a slow-burner for me, coming back to it once a month or so.  It has the Acher percussion hallmarks, some great songwriting, and a cohesive feel that makes it really work as an album.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Colatron - Hiatus:  Gloriously stirring.

Flying Lotus - Coronus, the Terminator:  Smoothness from You're Dead.

GFOTY - Secret Mix:  What the fuck is this and why can't it just last forever forever forever forever FOREVER?

Glass Animals - Gooey (Klaves Bootleg):  Oh come on you know how I feel about pop house.

Isolator - Cast into Blood:  The album is "Culture & Principal of Anti-Human Exaltation" and that tells you pretty much everything you need to know.

La Dispute - Hudsonville, MI 1965
La Dispute - Scenes from Highways 1981-2009:  My 2 favourite tracks from last year's Rooms of the House.  Oh emo inflection, you do you.

Listener - Good News First:  AHHHHHHHHHH I LOVE THIS SO MUCH.  You remember this guy?  I DO!  I had to look him up to verify this is the same guy who put out a record back on Mush Records over a decade ago.  This this this is quite wonderful.  I recommend his new album Radical Friends.

Llyona - With You:  More sexy rnb tipped.

Lorde - Team (Autograf Remix):  For some reason I just never bothered much with Lorde but oh hey here's this thing and it's better than doughtnuts.

Swick & Lewis Cancut - Wishes ft Tkay Maidza:  I love vocals that remind me of happy hardcore and video games.

Teddybears - Whats Your Problem Feat. Baby Trish:  This is all sorts of badass. Bang bang bang em out

Tommy Jacob - Heal Me ft Raveena:  Yes, there is a trifecta of gloriousness going on here.

MP3 blog 2015/04/14

blog 2015/04/14 - oh we're not having any of this

Wake up in the morning and feel like a monster:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20150414.zip


Algernon Doll - Candy Striped:  Jangle indie rock from the new album Omphalic.

G-Eazy - Why Thank You:  Feel good, laugh evil.

Howard Stelzer - Untitled (excerpt):  droooooooooone from Brayton Point.

Hundred Waters - Down From the Rafters
Hundred Waters - Murmurs:  While pretty darn pretty, The Moon Rang Like A Bell just didn't grab me as a whole.  Something odd?  The remix album works far better for me.  Yeah, how often does that happen?

Ilhan Ersahin - Freedom:  This one just stuns me.  From the 2010 Istanbul Sessions.

Ingar Zach & Miguel Angel Tolosa - Astoneaged:  New for 2015: Loner!  God I love this album.  If you like textural ambient ish, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Kendrick Lamar - Hood Politics
Kendrick Lamar - i
Kendrick Lamar - Institutionalized ft Bilal, Anna Wise & Snoop Dogg:  Do I need to say much about To Pimp A Butterfly?  Will probably ride in the top 5 hiphop albums of the year.  It's pretty darn great.

Manic Focus - On the Horizon:  Perfect little downtempo breaks package

Mighty Mouse - That Piano Track:  Smiling rave mouth!

The Mountain Goats - Animal Mask
The Mountain Goats - The Legend of Chavo Guerrero
The Mountain Goats - Werewolf Gimmick:  They said it couldn't be done, but goddamnit he did it.  An entire album about wrestling, Beat The Champ fine J.D. in top form as a storyteller, jumping from the POV of classic wrestlers, back to himself and reflecting on his childhood relationships.  Give this one a chance.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Wuki - Talk:  Fucking rave on you crazy diamonds.

MP3 blog 2015/04/09

blog 2015/04/09 - just a raucous extended mix for fart noises

This is not the discourse we want, but the discourse we deserve:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20150409.zip


Clark - Banjo
Clark - The Grit In The Pearl
Clark - Winter Linn:  This is quality electronica like mama used to make.  Stick to your bones classics, traditional goodness with years of experience behind it.  Eat your fucking vegetables.  HIGHLY RECOMMEND this self-titled album from 2014.

DoublePlusGood - Never The Same:  I picture the singer dancing around with one of those super skinny Bob Barker kind of microphones and damn does he have moves in my head.

Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Piss Crowns Are Trebled:  HOLLA!  Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress is amazing.  It's practically just an EP, but it is perfect in length and execution.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Hiss Golden Messenger - He Wrote the Book
Hiss Golden Messenger - Southern Grammar (Live at WXPN):  Mmmm the new Southern Grammar EP is short and sweet.

King Capisce - Never Spoken:  Now this I could do more of:  post-rocky music that has the horns way way up in the mix ala Cinematic Orchestra.  Fuck yes.

Leon Bridges - Coming Home (Early Mix):  Oh now this is just everything right.

Merdarahta - Poverty Will Spread
Merdarahta - The Dark Clouds:  Hoooooooly hell, As The Dark Clouds Swept Away We Could See The Sunset is AMAZING.   HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Moxi - Hold Me:  Well this might help with the comedown.

Quickie Mart x BJ So Cole - CashRules:  BOOTY BOOTY BOOTY BOOTY BOOTY BOOTY BOOTY BOOTY

The Good Husbands - Today ft Ryan Caraveo:  Smooth and happy, this is like a sandwich on a balmy day.

Wild Beasts - Daughters
Wild Beasts - New Life
Wild Beasts - Past Perfect:  I had never really been in to Wild Beasts before, but these tracks from the new record Present Tense catch enough of the magic I dig for to turn my head.

MP3 blog 2015/04/01

blog 2015/04/01 - oblivion

welcome to the fiscal:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20150401.zip


Brian Eno & Karl Hyde - A Man Wakes Up
Brian Eno & Karl Hyde - Celebration
Brian Eno & Karl Hyde - Daddy's Car:  Someday World came out last year and my god what a great find.  It's like a post-punk newwave album from the 80s that went in to hiding for a few decades and solely worked on training and refining itself.  It is an absolute pleasure.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Deafheaven - From the Kettle Onto the Coil:  Adult Swim singles program.  Holy shit.

Dusky - Nobody Else:  Always want that straight up deep house ish.

Elijah Ocean - Ride It Out:  Sweet country folk from Bring It All In.

Elliphant ft Skrillex - Only Getting Younger (Milo & Otis Remix):  Fiiiiiine just one little bit of skrillex I guess.  We've deluted him though.

Iceage - Forever
Iceage - How Many
Iceage - On My Fingers:  Plowing Into The Field of Love is my first deep listen in to Iceage and I am feeling about it the same way when I first heard Titus Andronicus' first two records.  A voice that had so much personality and presence and uniqueness, I couldn't pull myself away.  I am getting pulled in and it's great.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Machinedrum - Flycatcha ft Body Language
Machinedrum - Sacred Frequency:  Room(s) and Room(s) Extended, yo.

Phox - No Lion (Boom Forest cover):  Oh god I love somber acapella folk.

Raleigh - Still Light:  Sounds Canadian.

Rubblebucket - Sound Of Erasing (The M Machine Remix):  I love everything about this: the vocal stylings, the beats, the mixing.  So good.

Teach Me Equals - Coelacanth:  This gets props just because COELACANTH IS THE COOLEST FISH THING EVER.  Better than frilled sharks.  Better than mermaids.

The Last 24 - Let Go:  And away we go!

MP3 blog 2015/03/24

blog 2015/03/24 - this will make you fall asleep

mostly because you can't stay awake forever I am sorry:  http://thetastates.com/mp3s/blog/blog20150324.zip


Anna Of The North - Sway (The Chainsmokers Remix):  Oh god this hits all of the pleasure points at once.  I am rendered incapacitated.  Please don't tickle me in my moment of blissful paralysis.

Bleachers - You're Still A Mystery:  Like a throwback to 80s pop, from the album Strange Desire.

Blonde Redhead - No More Honey:  Perfect little subtle track from 2014's Barragán.

Cherokee - Don't Matter ft Darianna Everett:  The groove on this is just so addictive.  Those synth pads!  That funky bass guitar!  The vocals!

Dolor - Our Number:  Dark bass sex in the vein of FKA Twigs is always appreciated.

Dream Mclean - Network (Chase & Status Remix):  Every once in a while I indulge in a slice of well-balanced trap, and this hits so many of the right notes.

How To Dress Well - Precious Love (Cyril Hahn Remix)
How To Dress Well - Words I Don't Remember (The Range Remix):  My two favourites from the What Is This Heart? remix album.

Sam Smith - Stay With Me (Rainer + Grimm Remix):  Wasn't this guy nominated for some kind of award?  Ahh well, it's all about the remix here.

Spoon - Inside Out
Spoon - Knock Knock Knock
Spoon - Outlier
Spoon - They Want My Soul:  I saw a few glowing reviews about the new album They Want My Soul and so had my expectations up high.  And yes, it is a good album.  If you like Spoon, you'll probably love it.  And I do like Spoon!  But after listening a few times, I just didn't find a lot of NEW and EXCITE within it, and at the end I was left with a few songs I really digged and then moved on.

The Gnostic Trio - Gnostic Hymn
The Gnostic Trio - Into the Light:  Transmigration of the Magus is Zorn's eulogy for Lou Reed.  It's a lovely little album and has a quiet reverance.   It is not an essential Zorn piece for me though, as something about the textures and composition just doesn't make me want to spend more time around it.

Vince Staples - 65 Hunnid
Vince Staples - Blue Suede
Vince Staples - Hands Up:  Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Hell Can Wait is so damn good.  Beneath Run The Jewels, but def one of the highlights from 2014.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
