My Music Picks

The two albums I listened to in the past couple of weeks were Parquet Court’s latest, Sunbathing Animal,  & the self-titled debut from Alvvays.  The two albums contrast quite a bit in their sound.  Parquet Courts are a rawer, dirtier type of rock.  While Alvvays puts out a cleaner, peppier sound.  I like them both.  My absolute favorite selection from Parquet Courts’ new album is “Ducking And Dodging”.  It stood out first and completely from any other song on the album.  I LOVE IT!!!!

61J2Il-kRtLAfter hearing the Alvvays album for the first time, I wasn’t sure if I liked it.  But upon a few more listens it definitely grew on me.  The three songs I chose are the best ones, in my opinion. “Adult Diversion” stood out to me initially, but the somewhat dark and dreamy quality of “Ones Who Love You” spoke to me also after several listens of the album.
