Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin – Broom

Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin

So, I was walking home today from meeting my friend and these guys came on shuffle on my iPod. I’ve been aware of this band for a number of years, yet never really got into them that much until today, where I listened to both albums as I walked home and realised that they are both pretty damn good. Broom was released in 2005 and is a really cool record of melodic indie rock that although quite twee never veers into the pretentious. I’m kind of quite shocked how this band are still quite unknown because songs like ‘Oregon Girl’ are the types of tracks I could imagine becoming very popular. Oh well, maybe they’ll just stay a secret.

Silver Jews – American Water

American Water

I love Pavement a whole bunch, so it kind of makes sense that I also really like Silver Jews. The band were formed in 1989 by David Berman and featured Stephen Malkmus on a number of albums, including this one. Despite creating solidly brilliant albums throughout their career (they split up earlier this year), American Water is by far my favourite and is perfect for the summer months when the sky is blue and you haven’t got a care in the world. As you would expect from a Pavement related artist, the melodies are consistently breathtaking and the laid back vocals give the record and relaxed feel. Oh yeah, Pitchfork also gave it a 9.9 (!) which although should not be any kind of recommendation probably is.


Welcome…


Thanks for checking out Acid Math!

This blog will hopefully act as a conduit for me to pass on stuff I think is awesome, to you, the music appreciator. There will be new stuff, old stuff, well known stuff and unknown stuff, everything will be good though, you can be sure of that.

Clicking on a picture will take you to a link where you can download said album for sampling purposes

Don't be selfish, consider all these links as means of sampling the artist only. If you like something then go and buy it. Equally as important, support your local music scene, no matter how small. Go and see shows.

I'm always up for linking with other blogs, so get in touch if you want to as well. Any queries? Leave a comment somewhere and i'll get back to you. Enjoy!
