Telefon T. Aviv+Redhead+Ciani+Korallreven
It doesn’t get much better than this from Telefon Tel Aviv, featured on the new DJ-Kicks that was compiled by Apparat, moody darkness with a hefty scoop of tender details that release perfectly.
One of the reasons why I don’t truly review music on the blog is because I don’t like to share music that I don’t like, also sometimes albums fall in the lap of the wrong reviewer, I think thats what happened when Pitchfork gave this album a bad review, it happens but this new album by Blonde Redhead is far from bad. I think its written perfectly for a band that has been together this long, I can go on for lengths of why it should be received better but instead you can judge it yourself, I can’t see anyone else writing music like this any better.
Enjoy some true synth magic by Suzanne Ciani, probably made before any of us were even born.
I support the Swedes on all levels, probably at the top of that list is NHL star Peter Forsberg as my favorite Swede then the groups Studio and The Radio Dept. Korallreven is inching into my top 5 though, now we just need an album.

Fuck yes, I love TTA. So glad to see Josh Eustis has been able to keep the flame going after Charlie Cooper’s passing.

The fact that you dig hockey makes me THAT much more addicted to this blog. Good job.

I really don’t understand why no one seem to like this new album from BlondRedhead. It has a different pace but I find it hypnotic and captivating. The more I listen to it, the more I appreciate it.

Dan Lissvik of Studio actually remixed that Korallreven song. Worth seeking out. Synergy!

So, Pitchfork gave “23” a rating of 7.0, and “Penny Sparkle” a 4.0.
And.. Sleigh Bells “Treats” reviewed receives an 8.7?!
Pitchfork, taken with a grain of salt. For those that love Beck’s “Sea Change” album, take a look at the rating it received.
I’ve been a big fan of Boomkat for awhile now, but I definitely don’t agree with some of their reviews. That’s how it goes I guess.
So why does Pitchfork annoy me so much?

Anyone who could hear sounds would give that album a good review.

Lol, I remember sometime in the 80s when keyboard magazine had a cover story on Suzanne Ciani, they even had some transcriptions and I was thrilled to try out her new age licks on my synths.
I feel like now that whole new age period was so schmaltzy perhaps for me as a middle-schooler, but whatever, I was rockin it then.
