WIR #37-38 (Double-Issue) (includes some fantastic movie reviews along with a review of the new Grizzly Bear album which I love but am too lazy to write about on the site)
My contributions this week:
St. Vincent - Actor [Full Review]
Actor, Annie Clark’s sophomore effort as St. Vincent, is a mature, complex and remarkably gripping blend of intriguing experimentation and beautiful melodies.
White Rabbits - It's Frightening [Full Review]
It’s Frightening is a solid sophomore effort from White Rabbits that shows the band taking a more adventurous and less direct approach to crafting a unique and exciting indie rock album.
John Vanderslice - Romanian Names [Full Review]
John Vanderslice’s seventh record, Romanian Names, doesn’t live up to his own self-established standard, but there’s enough good material to be worth our attention.
Camera Obscura - My Maudlin Career [Full Review]
My Maudlin Career contains a few of Camera Obscura’s best tunes but is ultimately hampered by too much uninspired and dreary songwriting.
