Pinned Review

Sun Kil Moon - Benji
90
CW: Discussions of abuse, bigotry, and trauma.

I'm not the kind of person who cries to music very often. I definitely get some chills here and there, and even get a little misty-eyed sometimes, but I rarely get emotional to music to the point that I'm sobbing. Benji got me to that point.

The seventh track on Benji, "I Love My Dad", was what really did it for me. Up until that point, I was able to tell the album was sad, but I hadn't been looking at the lyrics. When I finally did ... read more

Teezo Touchdown - Making Flippy Floppy
NR

THE STEPHEN MALKMUS DIVE: PART 4

Brighten the Corners is and most likely always will be my favorite Pavement album. It's just Pavement doing what they do best: making fun, carefree indie rock tunes to make me smile.

What's great is that description can also be applied to most other songs on Brighten the Corners. It very much feels like a spiritual successor to Crooked ... read more

Pavement - Wowee Zowee

THE STEPHEN MALKMUS DIVE: PART 3

Wowee Zowie sees Pavement heading in slightly new directions after Crooked Rain, though everything that made them great before is still here. They're still noisy as hell, but as their discography moves forward, they seem to be keeping that much more contained and refined. That's not to say there's anything wrong with the chaotic feel of previous records, but there's also something very satisfying about a noisy but well-structured track. Hell, this album also ... read more

Pavement - Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain

THE STEPHEN MALKMUS DIVE: PART 2

Crooked Rain takes the slacker-ish ideas from Slanted and Enchanted and brings them into a more pop-focused light. Songs like Cut Your Hair, Range Life, and Gold Soundz are serious indie rock classics, and while Slanted is a classic as an overall album, it just doesn't have as many tracks like that. Crooked Rain is an improvement on all fronts, at least with the elements it borrows from its predecessor. Stephen proves himself to be a very talented pop ... read more
