I always find it hard going into listening an artist that i’m not familiar with and having them already released tons of albums in their discographies. I like understanding the evolution they went through in order to get them to this point, but knowing I approach music this way, I still decided to check out the newest Deerhoof album Future Teenage Cave Artists, their 16th album overall.

I feel that electronic/dance music is not only best experience live, when you can dance away with a big group of people and get lost to the music, but also a style that is best kept to single tracks. Its tough to find entire albums that hold up the whole way through (at least it is for me), but that’s exactly what I found when I heard Settle, the debut album from U.K. electronic brother duo Disclosure. Critics have stated that Settle was the perfect album for people that don’t ... read more
