tnght’s ep was great, and then there was this one trip-hop album that i found on bandcamp by a producer named moth equals that was pretty good but other than that, not much has happened. i really didn’t care for the new flylo album.

same! I’m a diehard Flylo fan but UTQC was, while still very enjoyable, very much inferior to both Cosmogramma and Los Angeles. You might want to check some of these out though, some of my favorites from this year

Burial - Kindred

Andy Stott - Luxury Problems

The New Law - The Fifty Year Storm

Bersarin Quartett - II

ASC - Out of Sync

Ital Tek - Nebula Dance

Claro Intelecto - Reform Club

Desolate - Celestial Light Beings

Hmot and Nocow - Lost in Taiga

Indian Wells - Night Drops

Monolake - Ghosts

Black Boulder - Phon.O

just a few that I’ve been really digging (there’s a bunch more if you want too)

partly because everyone seems to have an emotional connection to this album, in the aeroplane over the sea

damn, another good one

I discovered In the Aeroplane over the Sea like I did many “classic” albums that I hadn’t been exposed to growing up, through the Internet. At the time I first discovered it through either Pitchfork or Sputnikmusic, I saw it hailed as the best album of the nineties, one of indie/folk-rock’s best, and just that it was goddamn incredible. I’d heard the jokes, mainly concerning the lyrical focus on Anne Frank and the infamous “I LOVEEE YOUUUUU JESSUUUUSS CHRISTTT” lines in “The King of Carrot Flowers pt II,” so I wasn’t sure if I was going into a masterpiece or the most ridiculous joke of an album ever.

Now, upon checking it out, I really had no prior experience with most folk music (I think the most folk-out’d I’d listen to was Flight of the Conchords. ….yeah >_>), and I really wasn’t into singers who weren’t great or even slightly annoying at all. That said, when Jeff Mangum began to wail away, it didn’t bother me. I somehow really dug it, the way he bellowed out forlorn memories bathed in sad nostalgia and sang about past loves that probably never actually existed. The album, even upon first listen, just kind of left me speechless. And it kind of still does to this day.

The album has a really great emotional response with me. The whole album is a rollercoaster of feelings. When songs like “The King of Carrot Flowers pt III,” “Ghost” or “Holland, 1945” come on, I feel extremely happy and excited, while songs like “Two Headed Boy” and the title track leave me a little emotional. Then we have the fucking juggernaut of the record, “Oh Comely,” which to this day is one of the most amazingly astounding songs I’ve ever heard. That song, man, can make me cry like a little shit haha. Jeff’s performance on it is harrowing. It astounds me to this day.

The production on the album is simply unreal. The fuzzy guitars fill your ears and pummel you, the clean guitars are serene, and the auxiliary horns and such just make the album that much more magical. “The Fool” is magnificently executed, and the outro to “Holland, 1945” just screams for celebration. And while extremely miniscule, the pileup soundscapes during the beginning of “Communist Daughter” is still one of the craziest things I’ve ever heard.

In the Aeroplane Over the Sea is one of my all time favorite things ever. I can put it on whenever, and just sing away like an idiot all the way through, even though half the time none of the lyrics make sense. It’s made me feel some of the warm and happiest feelings music has ever brought me, as well as some of the most soul crushing sad feels I’ve ever felt.

How strange it is to be anything at all

the album to me is just like a night of hanging out with your friends, drinking some beers, and just having fun doing stupid things. it’s just a fun record.

I get that message from the album, but I feel like the first album (and No Singles as well) did such a better job of getting the feeling of youth across. Perhaps I’ve just yet to have my moment with Celebration Rock.
