Held In Splendor - MEXICAN SUMMER
FILTER Grade: 75%
Held in Splendor is not an album with clear highs and lows. There are no obvious standout songs around which the others were hobbled together. Rather, it is a rounded, interconnected cohesion of atmospheric Americana.
Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra
Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light On Everything - CONSTELLATION
FILTER Grade: 83%
Efrim Menuck and his current incarnation of Thee Silver Mt. Zion certainly bring a splurge of rock and orchestra. A five-piece of bass, drums, guitar and two violins, they spend a large part of this album thrashing gloriously through distortion.
TONIGHT! COME OUT MAMMOTH!
Dizzy Heights - LESTER/KOBALT
FILTER Grade: 79%
On his first solo record under his own name since 2001’s One Nil, the father of Liam shows where his son gets his itch for experimentation. Perhaps unlike other musicians his age, Neil Finn isn’t comfortable sticking with what’s comfortable, which would presumably be a collection of stripped- down songs.
