Good records vs Raw records

In first part of the post, i'll write the records that make me sing in recently. Wow, i love finding anything makes my day brilliant. Lou Barlow's forthcoming Mirror The Eye (EP) is just amazing...

And also Xiu Xiu's coming "Remixed and Covered" has been great work. It's included with several covers of influential names like Sunset Rubdown, a cover of the stellar song "Clowne Towne" by Marissa Nadler, a glorious cover of Her Space Holiday's "I Luv the Valley OH!".

Another great approaching record by The Soulsavers is huge on me, following up their critically acclaimed debut, 'Tough Guys Don't Dance' with 'It's Not How Far You Fall, It's The Way You Land'. Three years in the making, this time around they have joined up with Mark Lanegan who provides vocals on eight songs.

mp3: Lou Barlow - You're a goat [highly recommended]
mp3: Xiu Xiu: Boy Soprano [from the The Air Force LP]
mp3: Soulsavers - Kingdoom of Rain [ wonderful cover]

i haven't written on some mainstream records. But i've listened many of them several times to try to write something pushing. As you know it's not possible writing when a record doesn't give the emotion, and the push. So which records i only wave and wish good luck?

The Stooges - The Weirdness
Rating: 3/10
I wish i could love it, but it doesn't sound like The Stooges. "The Weirdness" is something cleaner and soundless than early Stooges. Only things that i'd like two or maybe three songs; "Mexican Guy", "Passing Cloud"...Cry of pain!

Sondre Lerche - Phantom Punch
Rating: 4.5/10
Why do i have to spend my time on a record that won't provide anything brilliant or original. Of course, i shouldn't. You know what, there are a lot of good examples of chamber pop
out there, then "Phantom Punch" is forgettable throughout. Ouch! there is a good song under name "John, Let Me Go". Sondre Lerche's pop composings are still raw.

Klaxons - Myths Of The Near Future
Rating: 3/10
I think i've already forgotten anything about this album, then, who is going to do the mention?. One of the most boring thing about music on internet is that some people are afraid of writing a negative thoughts on some artists. If you don't like it, nothing will change it. And Klaxons'
"Myths Of The Near Future" wastes my time.

P.s. Always listen what you want.
