[QUICKIE] The Checks – DEADLY SUMMER SWAY

♫ The Checks – Candyman Shimmer (previously praised)

I wish I loved this LP more cause Alice By The Moon was one of 09’s best but this LP feels a bit meh. Good stuff but where is the epic-ness?

[QUICKIE] Hooded Fang – TOSTA MISTA (w/ “Den Of Love” & “ESP”)

♫ Hooded Fang – Den of Love

♫ Hooded Fang – ESP

(Both previously posted)

This latest LP sports two gems (above) + new love “Vacationation” but just doesn’t stack up to the fantastic 1st LP ALBUM. Kinda like an EP.

[QUICKIE] Holy Ghost! – HOLY GHOST!

The LP as whole initially left me “meh” but I’ve really been getting into it’s throwback grooves lately. Don’t ignore this LP. Fun for all!

[QUICKIE] Bombay Bicycle Club – A DIFFERENT KIND OF FIX

♫ Bombay Bicycle Club – Lights Out Words Gone

I really wanted an album full of jams like “Shuffle” & classic fave “Always Like This” but it is not so. Pleasant but not blowing minds 6/10

[QUICKIE] Slow Club – PARADISE

I dig “Where I’m Waking” (+video) & rest of the LP is ok/fun but having trouble finding the same powerful moments from their debut. 5/10

[QUICKIE] Terius Nash – 1977

♫ Terius Nash – Wedding Crasher

Nothing as gold as “F**k My Brains Out” on The Dream’s real-name free album. It runs long, wanders a bit, but reliable sexy listening. 6/10

♫ Terius Nash – Rolex (ft. Casha)

[QUICKIE] Casiokids – AABENBARINGEN OVER AASKAMMEN

♫ Casiokids – Det Haster!

I like Casiokids. I like their vibe. But this LP just doesnt have any re-listening pull. Nice but quite forgettable. Great video though.4/10
