Listened to the Weyes Blood album this morning. It’s probably the album that’s gotten the most discussion in the Indie music sphere this year, so I had read a fair amount about it already, but based on what I had read I had basically written it off as not for me. Quiet, slower tempos, lots of synths. Not usually something I would go for.

So I’m really glad it got picked for this thread, because if it hadn’t, I probably would have completely missed the best album of the year (at least to this point). Beautiful melodies, fantastic textures and her totally arresting voice. She Makes me think of Carol King a little in her delivery, but it’s like Carol King brought up on Radiohead. It’s the best thing I’ve heard all year. But I’m just about to dig into the new Vampire Weekend, so we’ll have to see if that holds out.

yay! glad you liked. I listen to it probably once a week still. There are also spots in it that I think sound like a fresher take of my favorite Aimee Mann albums. I like the Carol King meets Radiohead description.

I should be able to listen/review the next one....I've had a rough month or so and haven't listened to much of anything at all. Also just joined the 21st century and subscribed to Google Play Music, so that should make things a bit easier.

Taking this pick in a different direction.



In the 60s, Brazil was being ruled by a military junta. Against that backdrop, a new artistic movement arose, with an emphasis on pulling in global influences. The musical branch of this movement, called Tropicalia, made its mark by blending Brazilian folk styles with Pop and Psychedelic styles from Europe and America. It was daring and controversial enough that artists (on this album) got into screaming arguments with concert crowds, and spent time in jail and in exile for being critical of the government.

This album was a collaboration between most of the leading musicians in the movement. Their goal was to create a manifesto; a statement of purpose for their movement. They all brought songs in, contributed to the other songs, and created what is now considered a classic of Brazilian music. You don’t need to understand the lyrics to appreciate the music, but it helps to know that they are frequently critical of the Brazilian culture and government as it was in 1968. Contributors include Gilberto Gil, Caetano Veloso, Os Mutantes, Tom Ze and Gal Costa

I checked, and it seems to be streaming on most of the big streaming services. If you can’t find it on yours, it is on YouTube, or I should be able to point you toward it if needed.

I hope you like it!

I probably won't pick it now, but one of the albums that I've kicking around for this (though it wasn't a finalist), is Stan Kenton Cuban Fire. Not sure if you listen much to him, that is my favorite Latin jazz album as an addendum.

Plus, guys it's five of us, we all listen to at least 10 - 15 albums a week. We can do this weekly. It's just a matter of picking it ahead in line of what we're listening to. I'm listening to this today also and I think that makes everyone based on the "What album are you listening to" thread.

Can we keep a running list in the first post? Do you mind? We might as well do it right.
