Black Radio 2 / [Deluxe Edition]
Robert Glasper: Black Radio 2 / [Deluxe Edition]
I've blocked about this--get it.
Arcade Fire: Reflektor
I must admit that I did not jump on the Suburbs bandwagon-I didn't really connect with it at all. But this one is right up my alley---I love a good dance rock album with some mean percussive grooves driving everything along--a little dose of religious (particularly the missionary kind)critique and a liberal use of the word 'heaven.'
Julianna Barwick: Nepenthe
Ethereal ambient vocals--that's what Barwick has made her career doing. This latest release is a push forward into some new territory--the songs ache and yearn--recorded in Iceland with help from Amiina (Sigur Ros-strings) and Robert Sturla Reynisson from mum, among others--gorgeous.
Will Gompertz: What Are You Looking At?: The Surprising, Shocking, and Sometimes Strange Story of 150 Years of Modern Art
Will Gompertz will help you understand modern art and you'll enjoy discovering what's going on if you don't already, and you'll be surprised at what you missed if you already do.
Mark C. Taylor: Hiding (Religion and Postmodernism)
This book came out when the future of books was in doubt and new approaches to layout and design were creatively adopted. It works well for the content of this, one of my favourite Taylor books--the man has an enviable and creative mind.
Roland Boer: Lenin, Religion, and Theology (New Approaches to Religion and Power)
I just appreciate the way Boer handles the 'Communists'-some great insights and strong ideas here.
