There’s one song that stands out more than any other for its depiction of cruelty, for its story about the forced labor of children

Dot Wiggin Band – Ready! Get! Go! (Alternative Tentacles)

Dot Wiggin Band – Ready! Get! Go! (Alternative Tentacles)

I’m pleased to say that Ready! Get! Go! is nothing less than brilliant, a wonderful album from start to finish. A record that can stand beside The Shaggs, and in places even goes beyond it.

Sky Ferreira – Night Time, My Time (Capitol)

Sky Ferreira – Night Time, My Time (Capitol)

Night Time, My Time is fantastic. A lifetime of bad ideas that turns into good ideas in the context of music. I like the new M.I.A. album. I respect the new Laurel Halo album. I’m falling in love with the new Sky Ferreira album.

Happy Jawbone Family Band – Happy Jawbone Family Band (Mexican Summer)

This is the most disappointing record I’ve heard all year. It hurts. Ken Kesey was right. Never trust a prankster.

Roly Porter – Life Cycle Of A Massive Star (Subtext)

Play Life Cycle Of A Massive Star every morning for a week. If it doesn’t change the way you see the world, play it again. If after a month you haven’t gotten any results, accept that you are a corpse that someone forgot to bury.
