The National - Trouble Will Find Me

The National - Trouble Will Find Me
(2013) 4AD

The new The National album is on par with 2010's "High Violet", it's really good. But just like that album, The National isn't even close to the greatness of the 2007 album "Boxer". No worries, though, you only get to release an album like that once in a career.
If you like The National you're sure to like this album as well!

She Past Away ‎– Belirdi Gece

She Past Away ‎– Belirdi Gece
2013 Dead Scarlet

Listenable goth released in 2013? From Turkey? No, it's not a joke. And, in fact, it's not just listenable - it's a great album! The only bad thing on this album is the vocals. But they're not really that bad, just very cliche. Dark mumblings that makes the lyrics impossible to figure out (maybe the fact that they sing in Turkish has something to do with it, too?). Act fast if you're interested - the CD was released last week and it's limited to 500 copies.

Thyx - Below The City

Thyx - Below The City
(2013) Thyx Records

More of the same. I'm beginning to grow a bit tired of all releases of late. Sure, there's some good songs on them. This album is even better than the last Thyx album! But I'm sure Stefan Poiss could do so much better. Maybe he needs a break and then a real producer? Nothing to see here - move along!

Kite - V EP

Kite - V EP (2013)

The fifth EP in six years. Kite doesn't release an awful lot of songs, but their releases is always excellent. I really like the EP format, and I wish other bands had the curage to just release real good EP's instead of 78 minute CD's with two or three good songs on them!
