Andrew Martin Poop 2014

As I have grown increasingly disillusioned with most recent music, 2014 seemed particularly suckie musically… My contribution to the Poop List is 10 (no seven!) really good or maybe even great records you’ve likely never heard… that came out sometime in the past. What? A DJ that is not interested in what is happening now? Sacrilege! You, my son, are in danger of becoming… irrelevant! Well DJ-ing is irrelevant, now that anyone can hit the sync button and throw their arms in the air… and after all… aren’t we ALL irrelevant? Hell, even the Pixies are irrelevant… Indie Cindy? Blech! Todd Terje, not for me… Anyway, here goes…


Andrew Stewart Poop 2014

1. Ty Segall/Manipulator (Drop the needle, and commence the abuse. This relentless rush of punk rock hits hard, and hammers it home. He digs the power chord; he digs the shimmy-shake. He’s jacked up on the Who, Bowie and T. Rex, but he is his own best bro, and nobody tries harder. Man of the year Ty Segall is pulsing, electric, aflame.)


Andrew Stewart PoOP 2013

BEST: 2013 “Time for the comedown.”    Buy New or Used via Amazon 1. Kurt Vile / Wakin On a Pretty Daze: A mobius strip of psychedelia blooms up, up and away from this newly-minted guitar icon, who unfurls eighty minutes of magic here, and makes it seem effortless. Wonderful.    Buy New or Used via Amazon 2. Mikal Cronin / MCII: Former sidekick kicks down the mike stand, making your eyes widen and your heart pump love. Brendan Benson, take notice:…

   Buy New or Used via Amazon 1. The Walkmen – Heaven (The evolution continues: gorgeous, dramatic, intimate-yet-epic songs about love and loss. There is a certain kind of magic here, and it’s tough to resist.)    Buy New or Used via Amazon 2. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – The Heist (Far more than the sum of its parts, this is not just a funny, inspiring, exciting R&B album – it feels important; and it rocks. Hear “Thrift Shop,” just try to…


Andrew Stewart Poop ’11

  Buy New or Used via amazon 1. Bon Iver / Bon Iver This transcendent, atmospheric folk album defies logic, a shimmering narcotic elegy to loves that never were, and places that don’t exist. High-wire brilliance.   Buy New or Used via amazon 2. TV on the Radio / Nine Types of Light TVoTR finally hit their groove, enriching their beats with a warm, soulful sound.   Buy New or Used via amazon 3. Middle Brother / Middle Brother The leads from Dawes,…


TV On The Radio – Nine Types of Light

Andrew S says: “Not sure if you have seen this, but it struck me immediately as Poopworthy. TV on the Radio’s hour-long “film,” basically a music video of their new album in its entirety. Pretty f*cking cool.” From the blub: “Nine Types of Light is as much an album as it is a movie by TV on the Radio. The movie is meant to be a visual re-imagining of the record, and includes a music video for every song on…


Andrew Stewart Poop ’10

 Buy New or Used via amazon 1. The Black Keys / Brothers (sounds like: John Lee Hooker + Hendrix + T. Rex). This fuzz-laden, distortion-heavy, heartbroken blues-rock masterpiece hits you like a gut punch. Goddamn.  Buy New or Used via amazon 2. The Tallest Man On Earth / The Wild Hunt (sounds like: Dylan + Mississippi John Hurt + Destroyer). Passion, and acoustic psychedelia, via rural Sweden. Truly transformative. (Also a great EP out this year.)  Buy New or Used…
