6th of October
Midlake - Fortune

Fortune - EP

God knows I tried to like them. They were recommended to me by my good friend whose musical taste I respect but he didn't tell me neither that they were jazz students (from jazz they borrowed the least important thing - competence on their instruments) nor that their favorite bands are Radiohead and Jethro Tull (from Radiohead they borrowed quasi-intellectual pose, from Jethro Tull those ever-changing musical directions). Overall impression - flat, boring and meaningless.
26th of September
Charles Manson - Air


Only Jandek's music is less coherent than Charles Manson's. That doesn't mean that Jandek is crazier of the two. I must admit I have a prejudice knowing that he organized the murder of Sharon Tate and others. Because of that I experience his music as mean and unpleasant. I don't intend to listen to it again.
