Grizzly Bear is one of my favorite bands, and all of these new songs have seriously amazing moments. But these singles are kinda making me wish for just a full length Daniel Rossen solo album.

I disagree. These ambient farts are probably some subtle building blocks for actual songs on the new album. It's fun to imagine where they might go as they blossom from a fart into a miraculous shit.

I have been waiting for an instrumental Dungen album for so many years now. AMAZING NEWS!... for me.

I really love this album. But I can't help but think almost all of these songs would greatly benefit from having more drums and more bass. Especially Solo, hearing a heavy rhythm section on that shit.

Here's my over optimistic suggestion. Last year EL-P said he was heading to L.A to record with Zack. So clearly the only explanation is there's a new Rage album out June 1st produced entirely be EL-P and Jesus is also there.

I still can't believe that whenever there's a a conversation about post-rock there's never any mention of Do Make Say Think. They have far more range and dynamic then any of the bands mentioned in this thread (most of whom I love as well). But Do Make is far too underrated, and perhaps they shouldn't even be shoved into the Post-Rock genre, in which case my entire point in pointless. I'll shut up.

Are you sure? I know Dave Fridmann mixed the first two records, but I'm pretty sure I read somewhere Kevin Parker took the mixing duties on completely himself this time around.

Somewhat misleading, no? Dre made all of that money this year from being a business man, not a musician.

I'm curious, has nobody heard the new Mimicking Birds album? Or is it just not good? I feel like I'm going crazy, I'm still shitting myself over that album yet there is little to no talk of it anywhere. When I recommend it to people I get very little of a reaction. It's like it never came out. I'm starting to think I have a shitty taste in music. Also, the new Timber Timbre album, holy shit, what the fuck. That album is unreal as well and it has very little talk around it. Confused.

Super surprised at not just the lack of love, but the over all lack of acknowledgement for the new Mimicking Birds album. That album is absolutely gorgeous and it fell right through the cracks.

I really do like this idea, but I'm wondering how effective it'll be. If they're going back to the masters to re-master at 196khz, doesn't that do shit all unless the album itself was recorded at 196khz? And unless you did an all analog recording, most digital recordings are recorded at 44.1/48 khz, so it doesn't have to be truncated later and loose even more quality. Just exporting it at 196khz doesn't mean anything unless it was recorded at 196khz. No? Not saying I know what I"m talking about what-so-ever, just wondering if someone can explain that to me.

I don't know if I'd agree with that. Oxycontin has insane physical and mental addiction properties, and when taking in the context "just to get high" clearly has massive detrimental effects to the individual. But pure MDMA, when not cut with any crap like speed, etc, is relatively safe, even in the context of "just to get high". I guess it's just semantics and what your definition of "hard drugs" is. Personally, I just think labels like "hard drugs" can be misleading when talking about things like MDMA/LSD/Psilocybin, which when used with a level responsibility and maturity, can have many psychological benefits. They shouldn't just be lumped into the same category as Heroin and Cocaine.

MDMA is not a hard drug. In fact, it's being used in credible studies right now to help people cope with post-traumatic stress disorder, among other things.

turns out the first track off that new Darkside album fits eerily well with that SNL Cast/Arcade Fire GIF above. Creepy.
