The next Mercy Choir album is going to sound like what people who don’t actually listen to Mercy Choir albums think Mercy Choir albums sound like.
New Beck: this is a very beautiful sounding album, but it is not even 1/16th as good as Sea Change, and the fact that it’s such a flagrant attempt at recreating that record note for note is a turn off and a very odd thing. I think I will like this album a lot in 10 years.
New St. Vincent: robot rock/space woman St. Vincent is my least favorite version of St. Vincent, so this is not my favorite St. Vincent album. the production is claustrophobic and I can’t find Annie Clark on this album unless I look really hard. I’ve never done cocaine, but I think this would be a good album to listen to alone on cocaine, but I don’t think you’re supposed to do cocaine alone.
New Guided By Voices: another Guided By Voices album with 3 really cool songs on it.
New Angel Olsen: this is the kind of music people think I listen to, but I really don’t. The song “White Fire” is a good imitation of a very early Leonard Cohen song
New Marissa Nadler: this is the kind of music I would like to listen to more often, but I don’t have enough free time. I’ll get back to you on it. It’s probably really good.
New Sun Kil Moon: it took Mark Kozelek a few decades, but he has invented an entirely new kind of songwriting. When you listen to this album, it renders a lot of other music irrelevant. If I was a certain kind of songwriter, this album would make me either go back to the drawing board or quit altogether.
New Damien Jurado: I have only ever heard one Damien Jurado song and it’s a song from this album and it is excellent, so I’m going to make a leap and say maybe this album is good.
