Both Fiona and PJ made excellent albums. And you cant point out that Joe doesnt listen to new music...the guy is a beast of new releases.

Im intrigued with the new alanis album but im guessing ill be bored by it.

I definitely don't think the new Alanis is for everyone. But I am surprised how solid it is. And I'm saying that as a massive fan of her stuff. It really is the best she's done in a long time. But if you're not a fan or if you don't really love her sort of therapy-ish lyrical quirks then I can't imagine you'd like it very much. Shit works like a charm on me, though. I goddamn love it.

well, Jagged is one of the classics of the 90s. Insuperable for me. Then she had a few songs, but overall im not sure i can pass a whole album from her again.

Mini-reviews of 2020, Part 5 (which I think will be the last for now):

Deerhoof - Future Teenage Cave Artists
I really need to give this some more time and attention, but so far it hasn't grabbed me at all, very much like every other Deerhoof album since La Isla Bonita. I think there's some interesting ideas in here that I could really get into if I hear it in the right mindset or something. Hopefully this becomes a grower.

Patten - Glow
While it's a little longer than it really needs to be, this is a nice moody ambient album filled up with some interesting texture and sound work, and it gets a lot of rhythmic mileage out of being completely beatless. Fans of patten's early work should find something to enjoy here as the artist returns to a broader, more idiosyncratic palette than the more typical trancey sounds of his last two albums. This has also been followed up by a companion called GLO))) which consists entirely of solo electric guitar reinterpretations of these songs.

Inventions - Continuous Portrait
Despite consisting of two musicians who have made a lot of music that I've enjoyed (Matthew Cooper, aka "Eluvium," and Mark T. Smith from Explosions in the Sky), I feel like I've never given a fair shake to this project. Joyously detailed instrumental pop that traces its lineage through ambient, post-rock, gentle IDM, fourth world music, etc. I've only given this a couple listens so far, but I think I'm about ready to finally dive into the Inventions sound-world.

Jeff Parker - Suite for Max Brown
I've been kicking myself for not finding out about Jeff's solo material before now, as this is right up my alley and I daresay closer to the direction I'd like to to have seen Tortoise go after Standards. A bit jazz, a bit hip-hop, a bit funk, a bit electronic, a bit R&B, and it's all run through a simultaneous feeling of wistful nostalgia and exuberant hope. This has shot towards the top of my list for this year and I imagine it will fight hard for the number one spot.

I truly cannot get enough of this album, but it has also driven me to Jeff's previous solo work--which isn't quite as good but has still been a delight.
