The Blue Aeroplanes – Anti-Gravity (2011)

The Blue Aeroplanes could easily be considered forgotten veterans of the British guitar pop scene, with no success of note since ‘Swagger’ was well-received around 21 years ago. In spite of that, ‘Anti-Gravity’ sounds surprisingly contemporary, partly due to the indie revival fronted by bands like The Hold Steady, who’ve made half-spoken, half-sung vocals rather fashionable again.

Silver Jews – Early Times (2012)

Formed in ’89, Silver Jews – comprised of David Berman and Pavement’s Stephen Malkmus and Bob Natasnovich – stayed relatively low profile and lo-fi, and were frequently misconstrued as a Pavement side project, though Berman was the band’s core and driving force.There are two plain ways to listen to Early Times; it can be appreciated in the obvious literal sense as 15 early Silver Jews songs in rudimentary form, or the poor quality can almost be looked at as an art form. This is, after all, an age in which artists are intentionally making terrible quality records to revert back to the charms of early, junky garage rock.
