Big, big deal if you’re wrong.
Jai Paul - In The Company of Wolves (you can’t buy yet)
This is likely to be one of the most important albums of 2013. In keeping with years of enigmatic positioning, it was leaked for a day then hastily retrieved. I managed to snag some of it, which I now share with you until the helicopters start circling. Introducing the future of indie R&B: heavy, sexy lyrics, restless rhythms, deep synths, and virtuoso songwriting. So itense, so fresh.
The Orwells - In My Bed (buy)
Lo-fi retro punky rock n’ roll that really nails the swagger. If this doesn’t make you want to clutch a microphone and belt it out, you were never meant to be a rock star. (That’s okay, though.)
The Silent League - Yours Truly, 2095 (Memory Tapes Version) (buy)
This is a post Mercury Rev project remixed by a post Hail Social guy, so there’s some awesome pedigree and explains the weird pop combined with sensibly composed, versatile electro.
Standard Fare - Darth Vader (buy)
Completely disarming with a strong sound and a meandering lyrical style, these songs are capable of surprising emotional aikido. One of my favorite modern indie bands whose albums are completely worth your hours and dollars.
Mock & Toof - Farewell To Wendo (buy)
One foot in each of the US, English, and Japanese electronic music scenes, progressive beats and instrumentation, unforgettably brazen lyrics, simultaneously cold and emotional, human and alien.
