This year’s debut was fruitful from a musical standpoint. Some of my favorite bands have released their albums, others have sneak-previewed their works and all I can say is that I’m quite satisfied with the quality of the recordings. Hot Chip, Four Tet, Caribou, Monolake – to name a few, they all had something good to offer. I’m still waiting for Plaid and The Album Leaf to satisfy my quench for delicate and carefully crafted sounds.
Here are some selections from their new works:
Four Tet -Angel Echoes (alb. There Is Love In You)
Caribou – Odessa
Hot Chip – Thieves In The Night (alb. One Life Stand)
