The canadian couple strikes again. I don’t like Wolf Parade so I didn’t have any expectations about it, and I wasn’t wrong at all.

I was frankly waiting for the postponed releasing of Tonight to critisize and declare the suit-wearing indie rock dead – I’m that bad.
As their likes The Strokes, The White Stripes, Hot Hot Heat and Bloc Party , I thought Franz Ferdinand would put out a bad album following the domino effect.

Tonight is surprinsingly great and refreshing in every detail. The scotch guys just reinvented themselves without losing their identity.

The production is awesome and makes justice to a mature band that knows exactly how they should sound.

Tonight is above everything a secure album. FF don’t seem to doubt a thing. And they wisely mixed a lot of synthetic elements to their energetic disco-punk approach. But in my opinion the 70s glam rock factor is the cream of the crop.
Name it from David Bowie to The Sweet. It’s everything here. Sounding as great as it was just discovered.

Animal Collective is in my opinion the latest most innovative band from NY. They keep going deeper into freak folk and psychedelic vocal experimentantion in such a way that every record they release I like better than the predecessor.
Merriweather Post Pavilion keeps the tradition and is my fav AC album to date.
Everything sounds like a perfect polished one-peace. The music is more synthetic, and the upbeat goes on and on during the whole album, making the whole thing really happy and inspiring.

Intimate and focused on Antony’s voice, The Crying Light is pleasurable for Antony’s fans.
