August 2014 Album Picks

 

Nathan by American Cream

“These guys, who hail from Saint Paul, opened for Dengue Fever at the Cedar in July, and I’d never heard or heard of them. They played three long songs, which were layered, slow-building-to-intense-climax, shoegazing tunes.”

Dangerous Days by Perturbator

“I discovered Perturbator awhile back and really liked his ‘horror’ movie approach. There are certainly other guys out there doing a horror style as well, but Perturbator really stands out. The music I’ve heard in the past has always been high energy and intense.”

BBC World Cup Mix by Diplo

“I referenced Diplo in my last pick and selected another one of his albums – Riddimentary – back in 2011. But the reason I selected this pick is that I’m a big fan of the beautiful game. And so nothing seemed more appropriate to introduce during football’s biggest event than a World Cup Mix.”
