The Tryout: Eluvium
Well, I tried to listen to Pitchfork's suggestions for best recent music and it just further cemented my feeling that I have nothing in common with their reviewers. They already fooled me into buying one Dan Deacon album so I wasn't going to fall for that again. They also suggested Fever Ray but the first few songs were worse than former Best New Music disapointer Burial so I didn't bother listening to the rest of the album.
I decided to stick with the ambient tone and go with Eluvium. Some good background music. They don't ever really come to the soaring highs of Explosions in the Sky or Mono so it's more low key but I'm still a fan.
