Kyle Bobby Dunn and The Infinite Sadness, despite its tounge and cheek name, is a post-dream requisite of emotion that centers itself on recollection, longing and missed opportunity. The mildly sarcastic titles to the (almost) two and a half hour monolith may direct listeners to believe there's more under the surface, but at the end of it all, despite it's sparseness, it's just pure catharsis. When you combine that with delicately swollen and swooning textures, what you get is ... read more

This sort of dreamy, phonographic sound in hip-hop has grown as tiresome as the "singer with a guitar" schtick in indie right now and, I'm one to think, the hip-hop community has grown comfortable with the monotony.

"What kinds of songs you make?
I make the kind you gotta read, baby."

Oh no doubt, and I think a lot of what Mavi is saying is both beautiful and powerful, but he's kind of reading the same. It's music, not just literature, and Mavi does very little to ... read more

Ms. Polachek's experience in radio pop sensibilities shouldn't deter passersby from her genre accepting sound, but it also shouldn't over exaggerate the simplicity of her work either. She strikes a fine line between unconventional and accessible veneer. What, with her (albiet light) touches of ambient, acoustics and glitch pop. Her vocal work is fine and dandy, nothing I could nit pick, but it's really the production table that gives her a leg up. (A good speaker listen, but an even better ... read more

What's a 65 to me? A "good" album with a bit too many inconsistencies.

What's a 70 to me? A "good" album I could see myself coming back to often.

I'm kinda split in the middle with the nonsensical simplicity on this one. Some absolutely energizing gems await, no doubt about it, but theres a heavy dose of stodgy filler too. (Gotta Get Out of This Filler) hmm....What year did you say this came out again?...1968 you say?...Alrighty then. I'll break character just this once.

Supp! I'm doing a challenge at the moment, the "out of my comfort-zone challenge". This is a challenge where I need to listen projects, I normally wouldn't listen too. After some listen I need to state my opinions in a review. If you would suggest an album to me, it would be great! As long as they aren't metal, hip hop or rap! (experimental/abstract hip hop, weird rap is allowed though)
