BAND BINGE: St. Vincent
Part 5/6

St. Vincent is a great artist, no doubt about that. On her self-titled fifth album, she finally takes advantage of every aspect of her being.

On St. Vincent, Clark finally breaks out of her art-pop shell and embraces the rock and electronic aspects of her music that have been vaguely present on every one of her previous albums. She also uses some of her jazz expertise that she gained on her previous album, Love This Giant, an oddity in the St. Vincent ... read more

Like Wallows said, nothing happens on this album. It's indie rock, but with the exception of a few tracks, it sounds the same as many other albums I've heard in the past. It's still cute, though.

BEST TRACKS: Are You Bored Yet?, Ice Cold Pool, Remember When, Do Not Wait
WORST TRACK: I'm Full

Tuesday Throwaways #4

I wanted to find an album that not many people have heard for today's pick of TT, and luckily enough I got an ad for Sub Urban, a "band" that you may have heard of because of their hit Tik Tok song, Cradles. Surprisingly enough, I actually saw them live a little while back, and was severely unimpressed. Let's just say this EP left me as unimpressed as when I saw them live.

I am writing this review with information that is devoted to my memory. I am not listening to the album as I write this, and I am not doing any research to fact check anything I type. This is a completely authentic review.

I love this album. The xx always make me happy when I hear their music. It doesn’t matter if it’s their stellar self-titled debut or their slightly disappointing sophomore effort, Coexist, because the subtle vocal melodies of Romy Croft and Oliver Sim always tug ... read more

BAND BINGE: St. Vincent
Part 4/6

I’m not sure if I should have counted this album for the band binge, and I kind of regret including it.

Love This Giant is an album that incorporates Annie Clark of St. Vincent and David Byrne of Talking Heads. It’s a weird, jazzy fusion of Bryne’s individual music and Clark’s sound. This whole album is odd, as neither artist fits the aesthetic too well. Honestly, I don’t want to take the time out of my day to dive in depth into ... read more

Hey! Sorry I haven't gotten back to you until now but it's basically for the appreciation of all kinds of BOPs

(Like really good songs that you just instinctively put on when you are in a certain kind of mood)

And anyone can join! So just drop some bops from at the end of your album reviews

Oh bless! I'm not gonna lie i'm a big fan of the format, even if i'm no longer doing consistant reviews. I'd say that for writing, be as honest and engaged with who is reading it as possible. Make a review you'd want to read, and hopefully others will follow! Once you do it for yourself, then everything else based around your writing is just an added bonus. Plus, the best thing you can give people is something that they cannot grab otherwise: your honest opinion. Also, since your relatively new, i'd say the best advice I can give is don't worry about numbers. I know that seems weird, but it's really good advice to follow later down the line. Good work on the reviews btw, the 'One word to summarize this album' format does add a bit of color to the reviews. Keep it up :)
