Horse Thief reminds me why I love reverb+melody. Dirty Projectors remind me how Dave Longstreth might be one of the most gifted songwriters to come out of the Brooklyn Indie Rock Boom of ’08-’09. New Sylvan Esso is promising. Maggie Rogers released and EP just teases the kind of breadth she could have on a full length. I was relieved to hear Monica Martin from PHOX singing on new material after announcing that PHOX was going to cease to create new tunes. Shy Layers releases a track that sounds like the opening credits from a LA Cop movie set in the 80’s but filmed in 2030.
