(31) Days of Good//12.15.14

FI_singles

After four LPS, and a handfull of EPs and Singles, Future Islands is finally garnering the attention, acclaim, and high praise they’ve always deserved. Their latest LP, Singles, is one of the best albums of the year and some of the Baltimore band’s best work to date. I recently lost my Grandmother and though the title refers to “grandfathers”, I can’t help but think of my Grammy whenever I listen to this particular track.

Panda Bear - Mr Noah EP

Panda Bear will release his latest LP (Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper) early next year. Lucky for us, he was kind enough to drop a little preview in the form of the Mr Noah EP. All four tracks are brilliant, but the easy flowing “Faces in the Crowd” is without a doubt my favorite of the bunch.

Talos-Tethered-Bones

Talos is the music of Irish native Eoin French. The perfect blend of R&B, electronica and beat production. I predict Talos will blow up in the near future. I for one can’t wait to hear more.

People shat all over her SNL performance earlier this year, but I for one thought it was fantastic. As always, Ms. Clark shreds all over this album and proves once again why she is one of the best guitarists in the biz.

I was super surprised to get a new Rentals album this year. Not surprised at all with how good it is.
