2012 Preview: The Return of the Indomitable Field Music and Then Some

December 21, 2011

Memphis Industries

After years of documenting 365-day periods of music releases and listening to anything I can get my hands on, it is starting to become apparent when a good music year is on the horizon. For instance, 2011 started very mildly, and it took me a few months to find a handful of albums to which I could wholeheartedly commit. Twenty-ten wasn’t like that at all, though – right off the bat in January, there were three or four records I adored, a couple of which ended up making my top 10 for that year. As of now, 2012 is looking even more exciting than that.

Almost a month ago, the new Field Music record, Plumb, leaked to the internet, and I nearly shit myself. Not to gross anyone out, but I really love this band and can’t help but revert back to 2-month-old excitation whenever they release something. (more…)

Album of the Day: Big Star Radio City

Today was a great day for tunes! This right here is one of my favorite albums of all time, PERIOD. It’s actually really hard for me to pick between this and “#1 Record” sometimes, but in the end, they are both good for different occasions. “#1 Record” is good for days off when you’re chilling at home, or for date nights with the lady and whatnot. “Radio City” is for nights when you feel like taking the town to town and partying your ass off, or for days when you have to work and really, REALLY don’t want to go. Today was more of the latter, but when “O My Soul” came on with that super-bright, pummeling guitar intro, I really felt like I could take on anything, even a bunch of whiny customers at Subway. That’s a lot of strength for one song to supply one man, I tell you. (more…)
