BLACK MIDI - SCHLAGENHEIM (2019)
GENRE: NOISE ROCK

Maybe the most appropriate album cover for an album ever

LOW - HEY WHAT (2021)
GENRE: POST-INDUSTRIAL

Low have perfected their new noise-pop sound on their newest album. 2018's Double Negative was an interesting experiment, but it was clear the band could go further. Hey What is filled with beautiful vocal harmonies, lush instrumentation, and walls of static noise. It shouldn't work, but it does.

Björk gives some of her best vocal deliveries of her career on here with tracks like ... read more

BEN FOLDS - SONGS FOR SILVERMAN (2005)
GENRE: PIANO ROCK

I haven't exactly been shy about voicing my opinions on this site (even when they vary wildly from the homogenized mind of albumoftheyear) so no one should be surprised by the next statement I make: I love piano rock. I said it. I think Ben Folds is a god. His songs are goofy and groovy and also sometimes really deep and sad. I'm not going to call it a guilty pleasure because I don't feel guilty. I love this man's music.
