(31) Days of Good: 12.28.12

diiv_oshin

“A standout on one of the year’s best debuts, ‘Doused’ is an intricate rock song that manages to sound different from just about anything else out there. With a guitar riff that hauntingly pervades the whole song and vocals that are only partly discernable, DIIV has created a benchmark for their future recordings, a lofty standard that their next songs will be measured against.” (words by Mark Steinbach, via Surviving the Golden Age)

lower_dens_nootropics“With a bassline–percussion duet chugging the song along throughout each its five minutes, “Brains” gives us one of the best and most subtle crescendoes since Of Montreal’s ‘The Past Is a Grotesque Animal’.”(via I Guess I’m Floating)

wild_nothing_nocturne

“…not only is Nocturne one of the most consistently excellent pop records I’ve heard this year, it’s also a remarkably mature statement for an artist whose first album was recorded in his Blacksburg dorm room in 2010. This is Jack Tatum’s Platonic pop record, and if it doesn’t meet the expectations of critics, for lack of soupy textures or the rough edges of home recording or whatever, it’s because he exceeded them.” (via Tiny Mix Tapes)
