If you keep up with the latest indie rock releases, you’ve probably heard some of the newest and best releases of the year so far. Just in case you’re wondering what’s good out there, I’d like to share some of the very best for you to enjoy at the moment.
Here are three of my personal favorites through the beginning of the year. If you haven’t heard any of these yet, I would definitely recommend adding them to your collection.
First of all, Vampire Weekend followed up its self titled debut album with Contra, the band’s second release. Since their debut CD, the young band from New York has wowed critics with its original sound, so expectations were obviously high for their follow up.
Suffice to say that Contra has lived up to expectations. While it may not be as imminently accessible as the group’s first album, a few listens begin to reveal some of the richly layered songs and the level of thought that went into each and every one of them.
Another CD that I can’t stop myself from playing over and over is Teen Dream, by Beach House. The band from Baltimore has produced its best album yet as its catalog continues to grow and evolve.
The sounds of this CD will bring you into a trance, as the instrumentation, vocals, and lyrics all blend seamlessly, creating a sound that’s familiar and unique all in its own.
Lastly, Owen Pallett has come out with a new album known as Heartland. Critics are loving this CD, as the sounds are intricately layered and truly unique.
Pallett, who used to go by Final Fantasy, has hit a home run with this release and this accomplished songwriter continues to improve with each new release. Listen to this if you have an adventurous taste for new music.
