Melt-Banana Fetch
Wow, where to begin when describing this awesome Japanese noise-punk band that I’ve unfortunately only seen live twice… a lot of the terms and phrases used to describe them seem to run together, like “chaotic spazz-core” or “spazz-grind” and whatnot. Melt-Banana’s music is shrill, pummeling, lightning-quick and pretty much all-around “crazy,” like an adrenaline rush that requires excessive, not-full-of-breakable-stuff space to crash around to. After the 2007 studio album Bambi’s Dilemma, a 2009 live album and a few tours, they tried writing demos in early 2011: the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, however, hindered the process (thankfully, they did make it through.) Their new album Fetch may not be very different from their previous work, but it doesn’t need to be: they’re once again doing what they do best, with sugar-high grind-punk that packs a non-stop punch. It’s hard to choose favorites, but some of mine include the colorful opener “Candy Gun,” “Lefty Dog (run, caper, run,)” and the surprisingly gloomy-yet-energetic “My Missing Link.”

Willis Earl Beal Nobody knows.
(XL / HXC)
Last year, this Chicago-based army vet-turned-singer-songwriter earned wide attention with Acousmatic Sorcery: a curious album of blues songs that were as compelling as their instrumentation was bare bones. Beal’s follow-up has better production values without straying from a very traditionalist blues sound, interspersed with fresh indie liveliness (his catchy Cat Power duet “Coming Through” is a great example.) He continues to demonstrate his desire to “be like the black Tom Waits” on tracks such as the head-bobbing “Too Dry to Cry,” with a raw, rustic vibe that makes it sound like a ballad dating back to the roots of the blues. Beal’s a cappella croon on opener “Wavering Lines” is downright intimate as well.   He takes the darkness to a new level on the incredibly foreboding “What’s The Deal?,” with threatening synth textures and bells to complement mantras like “just be lost” and “get a clue.” It treats the listener to what could be a sermon from a church in the valley of the shadow of death.

Nightlands Oak Island
Nightlands Oak Island 300x300
(Secretly Canadian)
On the second album from this bedroom project, Philadelphia-based multi-instrumentalist Dave Hartley (best known as The War on Drugs’ bassist) sings on a breezy island of summery electronic strings and chimes. His silver appearance on the cover accurately portrays how his voice sounds: multi-layered and echoed, as the album explores a sound that could be “more man, or more melancholy machine.” The result can be described as a mix of orchestral pop, soft rock and even ethereal music, with some favorites including the quick-tempo “Nico” for its Wild West guitar and sky-wide array of voices, as well as “I Fell In Love With A Feeling” for its enticing dance vibe.
