There's no denying that Fountains of Wayne know how to craft a great pop record. They know how to write a hook, they can pull of mild rockers and sweet ballads with equal aplomb, and they write melodies that feel like half-forgotten favorites. They have all the elements of a classic power pop band but they suffer from that peculiar '90s ailment – detachment. For all their flair, talent, and craftsmanship, the band don't really dig deeper than the surface. Of course, that doesn't mean they make bad records, and their second album, Utopia Parkway, is, if anything, every bit as good as their fine debut. All the songs immediately make a connection and all of their melodic attributes simply strengthen with repeated listens. However, those repeated listens reveal that Fountains of Wayne don't have a lot to say. That's not a cardinal sin in guitar pop, since most bands simply recycle the same lovelorn themes, but Fountains choose to have fun with clichés, throwing in goofy asides even in their ballads.

Wilco’s legend-making 2002 opus Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is one of the best albums ever recorded. You know it, I know it, and the good people at Chicago-based podcast Better Yet know it. Apparently, so do many of the best artists in today’s indie and punk underground.

Auf dem neuen Album haben MARATHOMANN sich ihre Emotionalität und die unverfälschte Energie des Punk bewahrt, was besonders die erste Single Schachmatt unter Beweis stellt. Da Punk für die Band 2019 aber nicht mehr den alleinigen Fixpunkt darstellt, präsentiert sich Die Angst sitzt neben dir vor allem vielseitig. Während Nie Genug angriffslustig aber auch eingängig ist, zeigen Stücke wie Die Bahn und Tausende Augen die ruhigere und verletzlichere Seite der Band. Flashback vereint schließlich alle Qualitäten und dürfte ebenso alle Fans einen. Der Titel drückt aus, dass wir von Anbeginn unseres Lebens Ängste haben.

"Upon both your houses" based on a live performance, from Nearfest festival 2000, in front of a quite small audience (1000 sits). It contain TP songs mainly from "In this life" and "In extremis" albums. This life show could not replace any studio album by the band, but sounds different from each one and has its own uniqueness, because of the songs editing, the sound and the environment… Thinking Plague is a United States avant-garde progressive rock group founded in 1982 by guitarist/composer, Mike Johnson, and bass guitarist/drummer, Bob Drake. Based in Denver, Colorado, the band has been active off and on since 1982, taking on a number of musicians over the years. They have made six studio albums between 1984 and 2012, and released one live album recorded at NEARfest in 2000.

Spanish composer and musician Ángel Ontalva is perhaps best known as a central member of the Spanish band October Equus, but he has been involved in multiple side projects and collaborative productions in the last few years as well, in addition to establishing a solo career. Ángel Ontalva released his first solo album, Mundo Flotante, in 2012. For the album he is accompanied by almost all the current members of his band. However, the sound is quite different. The album consists of instrumental progressive rock with an arguable foundation in jazz rock seasoned with details and elements from avant-garde, symphonic, chamber and folk/world music. Intricate chamber music compositions alternate with collective improvisations weaving a sound tapestry full of color and shades.

Battles' John Stanier, Ian Williams, and Dave Konopka always sound psyched to play together, but never more so than on their first entirely instrumental album, La Di Da Di. While vocals – first provided by Tyondai Braxton on their early work and by a host of collaborators on 2011's Gloss Drop – might have seemed necessary to humanize their experimentation, they're not missed on the band's third full-length. If anything, removing them gives the trio's ideas to generate sparks the way they did on Mirrored (particularly on "Tricentennial," which recalls the mischievous alien anthems of their debut) while keeping Gloss Drop's immediacy. Battles' mix of muscular drums and riffs and heady melodies and electronics has never sounded so liberated, whether on "The Yabba," a thrilling seven-minute excursion that sounds more like seven one-minute songs strung together, or on the relatively serene "Luu Le," which uses the same amount of time to close the album with a sun-dappled suite. Here and throughout La Di Da Di, the band sounds mercurial but not chaotic, with an interplay that ebbs and flows like creativity itself.

Even as they still mourn the loss of their beloved frontman, Scott Hutchison, Frightened Rabbit are celebrating his music. This year marks the 10th anniversary of their landmark sophomore album, The Midnight Organ Fight, and the band is marking the occasion with a star-studded tribute record. Tiny Changes features a full top-to-bottom reworking of the classic Midnight Organ Fight by a number of musicians who either personally knew Hutchison or held his music dear. Death Cab for Cutie singer Ben Gibbard recently shared his version of “Keep Yourself Warm”, while other early previews included Manchester Orchestra and Sarah Silverman & Katie Harkin covering “My Backwards Walk”, and Julien Baker and Biffy Clyro separately taking on “The Modern Leper”.

Part of a larger work that also includes a book and an art installation, on King's Mouth: Music and Songs the Flaming Lips revisit the heartfelt yet massive-sounding songs that earned albums like Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots so much love and acclaim. This return isn't a total surprise; after the musically and emotionally challenging Embryonic and The Terror, the band had already shifted to a lighter sound on Oczy Mlody.

Post Orgasmic Chill is the third studio album by British rock band Skunk Anansie, first released in 1999. Two album covers exist: the European version with the band lounging in an oceanside apartment, and the American version with the band standing on the Atlantic City boardwalk. It was a complete departure from their previous two albums, which had elements of punk rock and alternative rock by moving to a new harder sound with elements of hard rock and alternative metal. The album title resembles the title of the 13th song, a Japanese bonus track called Post Orgasmic Sleep. The album was included in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.

Lo strano frutto è il progetto solista di Enrico cappozzo (Teno) ex muleta e imelt. L'immediatezza è l’esigenza che sta alla base di questo approccio musicale che si concentra sulla musica come tramite per parlare della vita, delle difficoltà e dei sogni di uomo come tanti. Figlio della scena underground degli anni ‘90, Enrico cappozzo riesce ad emozionare per l'onestà dei suoi testi e della sua storia. Dopo "mi innamoravo di tutto quello che cadeva dal terzo piano"/ "l'uomo stanco", ad agosto 2017, lo strano frutto è tornato con un EP "mi innamoravo di tutto quello che cadeva dal terzo piano" Uscito ad aprile 2018 per la psicologa di Giorgio Canali. Il nuovo lavoro è un self-title in uscita per Dischi Soviet Studio a luglio 2019. Un album più maturo e curato che parla di un uomo come tanti alle prese con i fantasmi del passato, le scelte del presente e una società cinica che mette a dura prova essere umano.

Formed in London in 1980, the Legendary Pink Dots moved to Amsterdam in the middle of the decade. Members throughout the band's career have been Edward Ka-Spel (vocals, keyboards) and Phil Knight (keyboards), also known as the Silver Man, with a shifting supporting cast over the years. The Dots' music is by turns melodic pop and exotic psychedelia, with classical influences, sampling, and relentlessly dark, violent, apocalyptic lyrics…

Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys make up Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, who were responsible for some of the catchiest and brightest synth pop that the '80s had to offer. O.M.D.'s material was a step above other keyboard pop music of the time, thanks to the combination of intelligently crafted hooks and colorful rhythms that bounced and jittered with pristine charm. Their squeaky-clean brilliancy initiated by both their synthesizers and subdued yet attractive vocal styles gave them a more mature sound over bands like Duran Duran and A Flock of Seagulls, who were attracting a younger audience. The Best of O.M.D. is an excellent compilation of their polished music, starting out with less provocative material like the basic electronic wash of "Electricity" and the bare but ebullient fervor of "Enola Gay." As this set moves along, so does the craftiness of their work, which is evident on tighter sounding songs like "Tesla Girls" and "Locomotion," where the intricacy of their formula begins to take a more resounding shape. O.M.D.'s best work came from 1985's Crush album, which harbored the midnight airiness found in "So in Love" as well as the adolescent innocence that streamed its way through "Secret," which are two of the best tracks on this set.
