Quarterly Review – April-June 2012

Once every three months I list the best of what I heard in albums/songs/remixes for the quarter. I do this to personally keep up with all the awesome music I hear, as it ultimately helps me at the end of the year when I do my overall listing for the previous twelve months. I also do it to introduce you cool cats to tunes you may have missed independently.

Listen: The-Dream – ROC

After last year’s introspective foray under his real name, ladies man The-Dream has returned, and he’s up to his usual deviant tricks. No word on whether this new track will be on the upcoming The Love IV: Diary of a Mad Man.

Listen at The-Dream’s website.

The Top 200 Songs of 2011 – The Top Twenty

20. Wiz Khalifa – Roll Up

Delivering sing-song verses, that trademark stoner laugh, and a chorus you’ve memorized by the second time you’ve heard it, Wiz Khalifa might be one of the laziest rappers on Top 40 radio. But that’s exactly the point. He’s not some uptight, eccentric, crazy ambitious, domineering figure. He’s that pot-smoking friend who’s down for whatever, and if your down, he’s down. The most casual summer jam of the year.

Five Anticipated Albums of 2012


Sleigh Bells – Reign of Terror
February 14

Already a contender for most awesome album title of the year, Sleigh Bells’ sophomore effort drops the same day you’ll be giving chocolates to your lady. It is sure to be loud, frenetic, and face-melting. How romantic.


The-Dream – The Love IV: Diary of a Mad Man
Release Date TBA

Instead of dropping this new LP this year, Terius Nash ran into some label disputes, so the album has been put on hold. In the meantime, to whet our appetite, he dropped a free, excellent mixtape on his site, 1977. If that release is any indication of what to expect this year from Nash, it is sure to be a worthy follow-up to the incredible Love King.


Cloud Nothings – Attack On Memory
January 24

Although I wasn’t particularly impressed with the new material in a live setting, studio versions have sounded incredibly promising. 19-year-old Dylan Baldi leads his group from their garage power pop approach to a new, darker, and more mature follow-up, destined to be one of the most interesting releases of 2012.


Air – Le Voyage Dans Le Lune
February 7

Although their last two releases have been immeasurably disappointing, I still can’t help but get psyched for this ambitious project, an album based on a silent French film made in 1902. It’s just the kind of concept one would expect from this dreamy duo; the album is slated to feature help from Au Revoir Simone and Beach House.


Future of the Left – The Plot Against Common Sense
Release Date TBA

The Mclusky offshoots have been quiet for two years, and that’s two years too long. After dropping a promising EP in November, the band’s stateside release of their third album is sure to induce massive amounts of headbanging, as well as earn the group a new handful of fans.

Download The-Dream’s New Album 1977 For Free

The-Dream was supposed to have an album coming out soon, but Def Jam, for whatever reason record labels do things like this, decided to delay it until the “fourth quarter.” In the meantime, Dream (using his real name Terius Nash) has given us a free new album available for download on his website. The album’s called 1977, and it features guest appearances from Big Sean and Pharrell. The-Dream seems to think cease-and-desist letters are headed his way, but I’m pretty sure that’s bogus – he’s been promoting the album for weeks, and it’s been up since midnight, so….
