'07's Music to Love More Than Music: Like, pt. 6

Turbonegro - Retox
These 5 guys really ... really don't care what you think. They're going to rock, and be overly sexual, and just do anything they want.
Turbonegro - I Wanna Come

LKN (Lauren K. Newman) - Postulate II

Wow. I needed more time to really let this one sink in, time I didn't really give it. I liked it in the way that I like Hella's music the first time ... I'm amazed by it, but ... well ... wow it's complicated.
LKN - Fractured Sun, Fractured Heart

Noisettes - What's The Time, Mr. Wolf?
Puh-puh-puh-Pop Punk! Good, but they could have done better. Good effort, they'll surely have a hit single when they release their next album.
Noisettes - Scratch Your Name

Drop Dead, Gorgeous - Worse Than A Fairy Tale
I only gave it a second chance because JJ told me they were local, and I can't help but give local things a chance (I've got a weakness). Awkward Post-Hardcore done by guys who make it look like childsplay. You know, I liked it.
Drop Dead, Gorgeous - Drawing The Devil

Rilo Kiley - Under the Blacklight
I'm just too used Jenny Lewis singing folky songs with the Watson twins, so I can't really listen to and appreciate Rilo Kiley as much as I used to. Thankfully most people are saying this album isn't as good as the old stuff, so I don't feel so bad for only really liking a few songs.
Rilo Kiley - Under the Blacklight

Wilco - Sky Blue Sky
Hmmm ... I think Tweedy needs to take a little more time and put in a little more effort in writing his songs. He's gotten a little lazy. Granted, he's still a great song writer...
Wilco - Impossible Germany

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah! - Some Loud Thunder
You know, these boys got a lot of flack for this album not being the revolution that the last one seemed to be, but it was a fair effort, especially for a sophomore slump. I did like a few of the songs though.
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah! - Some Loud Thunder

The Chemical Brothers - We Are the Night
I was honestly rather disappointed by this album, because I was so used to the rad-gasm that was Dig You Own Hole. Granted, there were a few good songs, like this one:
The Chemical Brothers - Do It Again

The Comas - Spells
It was cute and fun for a little while, but it soon just became part of the background when I listened to it. I did really like this song though:
The Comas - Red Microphone

My Little Airport - We Can't Stop Smoking In The Vicious And Blue Summer
Cutesy Hong-Kong Indie Jangle Pop that is done just for the fun of it, which sometimes shine through in both good and bad ways.
My Little Airport - 我愛官恩娜,都不及愛你的哨牙

i am the lost sea - transience
Mega indie folk ... unfortunately it's a little amateurish and repetitive. But he's got good lyrics and a lot of promise.
i am the lost sea - Phonecalls

Turbo Fruits - Turbo Fruits
I do love Be Your Own Pet, so side projects are only going to mean good things. Not as ... Be Your Own Pet-y as I was expecting, and I'm ashamed by that, but that's how that goes I guess.
Turbo Fruits - No Drugs To Use
