    alt-J - Hunger Of The Pine

    There is a moment about a minute and a half into alt-J’s lush and intricate new single, when the Miley Cyrus sample plays for the first time, and you can’t help but step back and appreciate the absurdity of it. It shouldn’t work, but of course it does, adding yet another layer to this strange bird of a song. Orchestral, eclectic, tense, and soft, ‘Hunger Of The Pine’ doesn’t come in like a wrecking ball, so much as a breath of fresh air. 

    After alt-J last teased us with a “joke” single, this is a much better indication of what we can expect when their sophomore album All This Is Yours drops September 22nd.

    PARTYNEXTDOOR feat. Drake - ‘Recognize’

    It’s been a big week for The Boy. Drake hosted the ESPY’s to near-universal acclaim, announced the name of his upcoming album (Views From The 6, a reference to his Toronto hometown), was seen in the studio with once-rival Chris Brown, defended himself against accusations of being a “bandwagon fan” (he isn’t; he’s just a supportive friend), paid a six-figure settlement over cribbed lyrics, and picked up Polaris Music Prize and Video Music Award nominations. 

    On top of that, he contributed a guest verse to this joint by tour and label mate PARTYNEXTDOOR, released in anticipation of the electro-R&B artist’s upcoming EP, out July 29th on OVO Sound. 

    Swear I’m withholdin’ my urges
    'til you get this one-on-one shit
    like your name Katie Couric…

Playlist: New Pop Feminism
In the 1990s TLC, Destiny’s Child, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Missy Elliot, Xena: Warrior Princess, and the Spice Girls introduced an entire generation to messages of girl power and gender equality.
Today, new art and artists have taken up that call, from Beyonce to Orange Is The New Black, from Girls to Lorde. Theirs is not the feminism of the 90s; greater attention is paid to issues of intersectionality between gender, race, sexuality, and class, and the influx of the internet and fragmentations in media and culture have changed the feminist landscape. But many of the underlying issues are the same, now told through new voices. 
Pop culture can be problematic, but it’s also how a lot of people are first introduced to important ideas. With this week’s playlist, we pay tribute to the feminists making waves here and now, ushering in a new generation of girl power.

    Long Play: Alvvays, Alvvays

    Its runtime as breezy as its beach-born sound, Alvvays is the self-titled debut from the Canadian quintet. It opens sleepily, and like a perfect summer day, it’s over too soon, its surf-pop delights lasting barely over half an hour.

    Leaving the Toronto tundra far behind, if only in dreams, they settle effortlessly into the chamber pop soundscape of the California coast. Comparisons to Best Coast are unavoidable; both groups marry an unaffected vocal style with jangling guitars, aiming to replicate the wistful sounds of summer. Both succeed. But where Alvvays differ from this mold, they improve on it. Their narratives are more direct, their subject matter refreshingly different. In a word — one I use cautiously — Alvvays are tumblresque. The band even has a tumblr for its website.

    Firmly rooted in millennial culture, they speak with the lexicon of their generation, and engage in its frank handling of awkward topics, especially those unique to life in a post-internet, post-9/11, post-nuclear family, post-postmodern, post-everything world.

    "Adult Diversion", the track featured here, lacks pop’s familiar self-assurance. Instead, it’s awash in the doubts and insecurities of young adults of our time.

    How do I get close to you?
    Even if you don’t notice
    As I admire you on the subway

    It uses specific, immediately relatable images like this to elevate the individual tableau to the universal. By using a directly personal approach to songwriting, Alvvays are able to transcend the limits of individual persons to make music for people living here and now. This sort of first-person confessional songwriting is what Taylor Swift does so well, and if it works for country-pop, here it works just as well for pop of the surf variety. 

    The other promotional single, “Archie, Marry Me”, is a contemporary send-up of the usual pop romantic pining — you know, the kind you might actually find in a Taylor Swift song:

    You’ve expressed explicitly your contempt for matrimony.
    You’ve student loans to pay and will not risk the alimony

    But beneath the sardonicism, its endearingly sincere. The message of the song isn’t to dismiss social norms like marriage because they are outdated; instead, its narrator sheepishly longs for the comfort and security of such an old-school system, even while acknowledging its faults. 

    So honey take me by the hand and we can sign some papers.
    Forget the invitations, floral arrangements and bread makers

    By playing specifically to the concerns of modern life, Alvvays have a firm handle on the cultural zeitgeist. But by also penning wistfully cool songs, whose strength lie in their direct honesty as much as in their millennial trendiness, they’ve achieved a timelessness rare for a first album.

    Alvvays is available to stream in its entirety now on NPR’s First Listen. It will be released July 22nd, on Polyvinyl records. 

    Long Play is a new feature for Tuneage. Every Wednesday, we’ll publish full-length album reviews or interviews with artists. As with all new things, it will take some time to perfect, and as always, we welcome your comments, questions, and suggestions.

    Hey guys, this is my first ever full length album review. Please give it some love.
