LL Past - Volume 23
Listening Log - Past | December 5th, 2019

Another excellent Post-Rock record from Do Make Say Think, curiously off-putting Traditional Pop from the 50's, and Nick Cave's version of 80's covers dominate this week.

LL Past - Volume 22
Listening Log - Past | November 28th, 2019

Four albums this week, all released since the turn of the century. Katie Dey's under-appreciated gem, a Mount Eerie spark, and Múm's breakout dominate Listening Log 22.

LL Past - Volume 21
Listening Log - Past | November 20th, 2019

This week we have Mikko Joensuu invoking the power of Christ through Neo-Psychedelia, The Legendary Pink Dots finding their groove, and Jenny Hval's abstruse singing.

LL Past - Volume 20
Listening Log - Past | November 13th, 2019

Three more reviews from the past this week, including another excellent and underrated release from Bruno Pernadas and arguably The Beatles' worst LP.

LL Past - Volume 19
Listening Log - Past | November 6th, 2019

Three albums this week, and two from a world originating outside of music. One, Hadestown, from Broadway. Two, Over The Garden Wall, from Cartoon Network.

LL Past - Volume 18
Listening Log - Past | October 30th, 2019

It's a Rock week for Listening Log, as all five records have something to do with the genre. Krautrock, Alternative Rock, and Experimental Rock make their home here.

LL Past - Volume 17
Listening Log - Past | October 23rd, 2019

Another rather weak week for music from the past, with only three albums reviewed including two from Mount Eerie and Polvo that tested my patience.

LL Past - Volume 16
Listening Log - Past | October 16th, 2019

Rock and Pop from three different decades dominate this week's reviews. One of Pink Floyd's magnum opuses, The Clientele's debut, and a Belle & Sebastian EP.

LL Past - Volume 15
Listening Log - Past | October 9th, 2019

Just three albums this week, but the range in quality is remarkable. One of my favorite listening experiences of 2019 sits alongside one of my least favorite.

LL Past - Volume 14
Listening Log - Past | October 2nd, 2019

80's weirdo Punk, 10's Abstract Hip-Hop, and two 90's Rock efforts dominate this week's Listening Log Past. Nothing sensational, nothing outright bad.

LL Past - Volume 13
Listening Log - Past | September 25th, 2019

Two seminal underground 90's Pop artists both begin and end their careers, with Quickspace and Heavenly. Tim Hecker and Death Valley Girls round things out.

LL Past - Volume 12
Listening Log - Past | September 18th, 2019

A wide range of reviews this week, spanning five decades and many iterations of Rock. From The Beatles' exploratory phase to Do Make Say Think's late stage 00's Post-Rock.

LL Past - Volume 11
Listening Log - Past | September 11th, 2019

Tons of albums reviewed this week, running the gamut of my music knowledge. Hip-Hop, Rock, Ambient, Electronic, Pop. All of it, and more, is featured in Volume 11.

LL Past - Volume 10
Listening Log - Past | September 3rd, 2019

A disappointing debut from a relatively obscure 90's Rock outfit and a sterling look into a corrupted mind through Death Industrial compose our reviews this week.

LL Past - Volume 9
Listening Log - Past | August 29th, 2019

90's Rock galore in this volume of Listening Log. From the sweet and sincere Belle & Sebastian to the visceral and rabid Polvo, with more styles in-between.

LL Past - Volume 8
Listening Log - Past | August 20th, 2019

Plenty of albums this week from all walks of life and all levels of quality. There's modern Shoegaze, vintage Art Rock, lovable Twee Pop, distant Ambient, and more.

LL Past - Volume 7
Listening Log - Past | August 12th, 2019

Six albums this week, with two greats. One from The Clientele and their idealized Dream Pop, the other Do Make Say Think and their curious look into Post-Rock.

LL Past - Volume 6
Listening Log - Past | August 6th, 2019

Two projects from the Montreal Post-Rock scene, including my final foray into GY!BE, lead this week. An under-appreciated Big Thief EP rounds things out.

LL Past - Volume 5
Listening Log - Past | July 28th, 2019

A cow-themed week, for some reason. First Spellling's Mazy Fly, not Pink Floyd's Atom Heart Mother. Joining that unusual LP is a slew of Rock-oriented projects.

LL Past - Volume 4
Listening Log - Past | July 22nd, 2019

Quickspace align all forms of 90's Rock. The Antlers descend further into their pits of Slowcore. And Ween make a mockery of depression with off-brand humor.

LL Past - Volume 3
Listening Log - Past | July 18th, 2019

The Kinks create idealistic nostalgia. Long Fin Killie uses alternative means to express his homosexuality. And Standing On The Corner make a sprawling opus.

LL Past - Volume 2
Listening Log - Past | July 11th, 2019

Velvet Underground's John Cale expands his reach. Matana Roberts creates a modern experience about America's darkest history. And Kevin Abstract romanticizes adolescence.

LL Past - Volume 1
Listening Log - Past | July 2nd, 2019

Algiers incite a revolution through Gospel. tUnE-yArDs thrives with her humble, innocent debut. And Julee Cruise seeps further into the Twin Peaks universe.
