Music Mondays: Catching Up

Music Mondays

Yes, I realize it’s been over a month since I posted anything for Music Mondays. Other than some partial reasons I posted yesterday, the sad fact is that even when I’ve been able to listen to new albums, not much has grabbed me. So, like the post I did entitled Too Much Music, Too Little Time, I’ll hit you with the few things that stuck out. Enjoy!

The 1975: A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships – 1/2 The 1975 (as you know them), 1/2 Bon Iver electronica, 1/2 90s-era Bonnie Raitt piano ballads

Ed Harcourt: Beyond The End – Beautiful, sad piano. Not quite torch song-like.

Art Brut: Wham! Bang! Pow! Let’s Rock Out! – Upbeat, quirky punk-pop. One of my favorite recent albums.

Chris Cornell: Chris Cornell – The deluxe edition captures some of his quintessential hits from his band and solo efforts. I still enjoy his acoustic Billie Jean cover.

Laura Jane Grace & The Devouring Mothers: Bought to Rot – Punk/rock. I’m sure this album would win points in my brother’s book just for the song I Hate Chicago.

The Glands: Double Coda – It’s classified as Alternative/Indie, but some of it just reminds me of straight up 70s Rock but with better production value.

Golden Hornet with Jeffrey Zeigler: The Sound of Science – If memory serves this is classified as Dance/Electronic, but it struck me more like avant-garde jazz. Perhaps I need to revisit this album.

Hanson: String Theory – Orchestral-pop. I never gave Hanson much thought, but something about this album brought out what I thought was morbid curiosity. I have to admit, I really enjoyed the album. 

I missed a ton more music over the past five weeks, so if you’ve come across something that really clicks with you, feel free to share in the comments section below.

Have something to add?
