Great Sunday Album, and an Amendment
The Men with my 2nd favorite album of the new year, after Future Islands Singles.
Correction time: Lorde's Pure Heroine (Extended) is my album of the 2013. You need to sit down and listen to the whole thing. "Royals" is the weakest track on there, and sticks out like a sore thumb. But I can't fault her for Trojan Horsing her way into fame. I thank her. Imagine Southern (Hemisphere) Gothic- think Top of the Lake- with the outsider heart/mind of Lindsay Weir and the full realization of the xx's spare pop majesty. Her vocal emotiveness and limberness is banana-stand crazy. Who's to say what will come next for this kid who already thinks she's old, but based on her outre collection of covers and collabs, the sky is the limit. If she falls back to earth, this was more than enough.

I'm solid with morning blogging, but night blogging is my Achilles's heel. Lose steam, become nihilistic, etc. Your support would be appreciated.
