Another of many contenders for #AOTY is Jenny Hval’s LP Blood Bitch. Here’s a taste of romance.
Some kind of violence,
Muted and opaque
Gutted on waxed wood floor
The new album Fixion by Trentemøller dropped recently and while there are quite a few surprising little gems on the record, Savages Jehnny Beth lends her voice to the track, “River in Me.”
It’s an inspiring song and a good first hit of Trentemøller. Load it up, toke it and enjoy the ride.

The Brooklyn four piece Neaux is set to release their debut Fell Off the Deep End via Iron Pier on Sept. 16.
Catchy, noisey, fuzzed out and addictive, can’t wait to hear the rest.
So jammy this jah?
Time is a Mountain’s II LP popped up on my radar and I’ve been nodding along every since. Just had to share.
Sweden does good heady stoner krautrockish vibes.
You can find copies of the LP on Discogs. Grab one while they’re luke warm.
Angel Olsen’s new record and third full LP, My Woman, has pushed through the noise to the top of the pile. It’s so good I want to drown in every reverb drenched guitar note. This has been an excellent year for music and My Woman will probably make a few dozen top tens.
Boston’s Ed Balloon is creating future jams for the present. With a solid foundation in R&B, Balloon’s inclinations run the gamut of genres, from the eclectic Indie rock of Of Montreal to Janis Joplin, Maxwell and Jill Scott. His approach to song making–and the results–occupy that excellent middle ground, straddling classifications.
Check out “Graduate,” a standout track from his EP, No Smoking.
