The Ladybug Transistor — Clutching Stems

It's all about the tunes, man


Indie

Stephen Carradini
The Ladybug Transistor’s pop songs are elegant constructions.

James and Evander — Constellating EP + 2

Like the Postal Service. But not.


Indie

Stephen Carradini
I love The Postal Service. I’ve yearned for the day that their long-rumored second album comes out; I’ve pretty much resigned myself to it never appearing. In its stead, I’ve sought out other ge

Givers — In Light

The most enthusiastic calypso/indie-pop band ever delivers


Indie

Stephen Carradini
Givers’ “In Light” does not capture the exuberant magic that the band puts out live.

Son Lux — We Are Rising

An ornate, ecstatic set of indie compositions


Indie

Stephen Carradini
It is difficult to categorize the music of Son Lux.

tUnE-yArDs — w h o k i l l

Oft-inventive, sometime-bizarre music


Indie

Stephen Carradini
I’ve been listening to tUnE-yArDs’ “w h o k i l l” for a couple of months, which is far longer than I listen to most CDs I review.

Delay Trees — Delay Trees

The best Death Cab album Ben Gibbard didn’t write


Indie

Stephen Carradini
If you’re a longtime fan of Death Cab for Cutie feeling let down by “Codes and Keys,” fear not.

Heavy Years: 2000-2010 — Chris Mills

An under-radar singer/songwriter gets a well-deserved retrospective


Indie

Stephen Carradini
Singer/songwriter Chris Mills’ appeal can be summed up in the title of his 1996 debut EP, “Chris Mills Plays and Sings.”

The Antlers — Burst Apart

A baby-makin’ record about not baby-makin’.


Indie

Stephen Carradini
“Burst Apart” by The Antlers is a baby-makin’ record about not baby-makin’.

Saturday Sirens — Saturday Sirens

Rock debut is a highlight of local music so far this year


Indie

Stephen Carradini
Seth Anderson has the sort of confident snarl that turns heads and perks up ears.

Manchester Orchestra — Simple Math

Passionate, excellent indie-rock tunes


Indie

Stephen Carradini
It’s pretty weird that there hasn’t been any monolithic indie-rock disc to polarize the blog masses so far this year, as we had Beach House to love or hate before January was up in 2010.

Death Cab for Cutie — Codes and Keys

Indie-poppers' best album since the early 2000s


Indie

Stephen Carradini
To its benefit and ill, Death Cab for Cutie has never made the same album twice.

Man-made Objects — EP

Beautifully recorded psych and shoegaze tunes


Indie

Stephen Carradini
Man-Made Objects’ shoegaze and psych tunes rely heavily on songcraft, relegating reverb to an effect on guitar and vocals instead of the featured element.

Laura Stevenson and the Cans — Sit Resist

Disparate genres tie into an incredibly coherent sound


Indie

Stephen Carradini
I lauded Emily Arin’s latest earlier this year because of its ability to seamlessly fuse disparate genres into one thing.

Empty Space Orchestra — Empty Space Orchestra

Brilliant, jazz-influenced post-rock


Indie

Stephen Carradini
I’m not sure why I’ve encountered large amounts of jazz-influenced post-rock this year, but I’ve heard so much of it that I’ve got Colin Stetson’s mindblowing “New History Warfare Vol. 2: Judges” atop my current best of 2011 list.

Colourmusic — My _____ Is Pink

Intriguing, excellent rock songwriting


Indie

Stephen Carradini
Although Colourmusic spent a great amount of time talking about the sex-related aspects of “My _____ Is Pink” here, a secondary theme of the record is the most immediately noticeable part: Ryan Hendrix wanted to make an album that people could play when they work out.
