End of Month List, Music

August 2014 New Music

This was a month of slow growers (save Spoon’s new album for which I was immediately hooked). Don’t worry. I did find some gems after a few listens. Don’t miss the new guy on the block who’s style is in the vein of Alabama Shakes, Gary Clark Jr and Jack White. It’s an invigorating blues-rock debut that hopefully foretells even more to come. For the music brainiacs, FKA Twigs and Cymbals Eat Guitars give us new music to chew on. Veterans, The New Pornographers and J Mascis (Dinosaur Jr) don’t trail blaze this year, but offer up enjoyable albums none-the-less. Of note, the album covers are especially intriguing this month.
