RIYL on Young Statues?
Mansions with more of a rock edge. Their new EP comes out April 2nd, but check out their full length. It's s/t.

New Lydia record has already grown on me a lot. Great for Spring.

I dig about half of the Conditions record - other half is a falls short, as others have noted.

Reviews for both will be up soon

Was just about to ask your thoughts on Conditions...I'm still on the fence about where it falls for me.

Part of my struggle is that I like it, but after 1 listen through I just want to go listen to the bands it reminds me of.
I was a huge huge fan of Fluorescent Youth. I dig about 3/4 of this record, but some songs never really take off like I want them to ("Skeleton," "Best Mistake," "Wonderful Life," etc) but then some songs like "Every Day Is a New Life" and "Love Elusive" are killer. Probably a 6.5-7 for me. The great songs are killer; the mediocre ones fall flat.

Ha, all the songs I think are great are the ones you don't like. Throw maybe one more into your list of "falls flat" and then everything else is a miss for me. Awesome.
That's pretty funny actually haha. Posting my review Tuesday.

Dude, Best Mistake is a sick trick. Love the synth.
The intro on that is fantastic....and then it just doesn't take off
