Django Django - Marble Skies | Reactions | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

Django Django – Marble Skies Reaction

While Django Django's previous efforts felt a bit more artsy in intention, the experimentation on Marble Skies feels done with the sole purpose of creating something fun. And it is fun, it's a lighthearted, head nodding romp full of brilliant melodies and earworm hooks. It's almost impossible not to be pulled into their joyous orbit....
Fever Ray - Plunge | Reactions | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

Fever Ray – Plunge Reaction

Fever Ray's sound is not easily quantifiable nor is it's intent, it's quintessential mood music and just one of those things where you just know it when you hear it. I'm not sure that I enjoyed Plunge as much as her first album, at least not immediately, but there's no denying the sheer creativity and boundary pushing present that succeeds at evoking emotional response better than almost anything else that comes to mind....

Grizzly Bear - Painted Ruins

Grizzly Bear – Painted Ruins Reaction

Painted Ruins is an absolutely gorgeous album that delivers some of the densest and intricately layered compositions I've heard all year, delivering hidden nuance with each new listen. It's a moody, cinematic album that's been well worth the 5 year wait. Check this one out now!...
Lana Del Rey - Lust for Life

Lana Del Rey – Lust For Life Reaction

While there are a few moments in Lust for Life that drag a bit, Lana is still able to wring out interesting narratives and songs from her now familiar melancholic style. As a whole, I don't know if I loved it more than my favorite project of hers, Born to Die, but there are definitely moments in here that I do....
Bryson Tiller - True to Self

Bryson Tiller – True to Self Reaction

Bryson Tiller's follow-up to his massive first project feels like a quarter step forward than a major leap ahead. That's not a bad thing as he still sounds great, just expect more of a remaster of something already stellar instead of something wholly new and exciting....
Feist - Pleasure

Feist – Pleasure Reaction

This was my first Feist album and it was an exceptional piece of art; full of raw emotion, minimalist production, and her incredibly layered voice. It was a surreal listen that left me floating through the ether and it's one of my favorites of the year thus far....
Allan Kingdom - LINES

Allan Kingdom – Lines Reaction

Allan Kingdom's major debut may not be particularly groundbreaking but it is still a very strong first offering that manages to push the envelope of what is modern hip-hop that much more. With shades of Cudi, he's got a bright future ahead of him....
Paramore - After Laughter

Paramore – After Laughter Reaction

After Laughter was a surprising return from the traditionally pop leaning punk-rock band that not only managed to reinvent and reinvigorate their sound but has made me a fan in the process. Their 80's pop influenced sound combined with Hayley's still great vocals and punk musings made for an unexpectedly great combination....
Gorillaz - Humanz

Gorillaz – Humanz Reaction

Humanz was my very first Gorillaz album and it left me as confused and mystified by them as I was before. Genre wise it is literally impossible to classify the album. It felt like they took the parts they liked from each genre and tried to put them together to create one product. It made for an interesting listen and when it worked, it really worked. But that was only about 50% of the time....
Steve Lacy - Steve Lacy's Demo

Steve Lacy – Steve Lacy’s Demo Reaction

This is the third solo offering from The Internet, and while it's the shortest of the trio it might show the most potential. At only 18 years of age, Steve Lacy shows a command and understanding of funk and soul well beyond his years. He is as equally strong in front of the boards as he is behind them; giving us glimpses of what might be the next big thing....
