Vundabar – Gawk
Album of the month, easy. Just go buy it.
Tame Impala – Currents
Thirteen tracks of pop-y goodness. Had the second side of the album been as good as the first, we’d be talking AOTY status.
Ducktails – St. Catherine
Matt Mondanile’s umpteenth LP as his solo act is much more clear and polished than anything he did on the Wish Hotel EP, which is equal parts disappointing and encouraging.
Steelism – The Drawing Room, Volume 1
This instrumental EP packs more styles of music into five songs than most bands do in the entire evolution of their discography.
