What Happens to People?
by Deerhunter

"Far less aesthetically cohesive than 'Monomania' or 'Fading Frontier,' it never settles, skipping without warning from harpsichord-bedecked psych-pop to icy Tubeway Army-ish synth instrumentals, from elegiac alt-rock ballads to stuff that sounds like a lo-fi take on 80s Japanese environmental music, its disparate strands just about held together by Cox’s drawling voice and the hazy quality of the production."

Am I An Alien Here
by Wolf Parade
(11 plays) | (0 fans)

"On the appropriately titled “Am I an Alien Here”, all of Wolf Parade’s tricks are utilized to perfection. The guitars simmer to a boil, pensive and still until they erupt in a chorus that demands an answer to a question at once timely and evergreen: “Am I an alien here/ Here in the cave of my skull/ Crawling around in the dark.” Here's a review of Wolf Parade's "Cry Cry Cry": https://consequenceofsound.net/2017/10/album-review-wolf-parade-cry-cry-cry/

Here Comes the Sun
by The Beatles
(95 plays) | (0 fans)

George Harrison said, "'Here Comes The Sun' was written at the time when Apple was getting like school, where we had to go and be businessmen: 'Sign this' and 'Sign that'. Anyway, it seems as if winter in England goes on forever; by the time spring comes you really deserve it. So one day I decided I was going to sag off Apple and I went over to Eric Clapton's house. The relief of not having to go and see all those dopey accountants was wonderful, and I walked around the garden with one of Eric's acoustic guitars and wrote 'Here Comes The Sun.'"
