I don't have much to say besides that this album is a miracle, and quite possibly my favorite indie rock album ever.

I've never been convinced by the hindsight critical acclaim for this band, but yeah, this is pretty damn good.

Oh man, this album's gonna be a fucking monster isn't it? How is this band on such a roll?

I'm with you on the Anohni album. I loved the singles, but the rest really isn't doing it for me. I appreciate that someone's doing protest music like this in 2016, but the lyrics to songs like "Obama" are on-the-nose to the point of being cringe-worthy. On the other hand, the new White Lung is fantastic! It's been kicking my ass all day.

I've listened to it once, and I definitely need a few more listens for it to fully sink in. My first reaction is that the songs that sound like classic Titus are fantastic, but there are a few tracks on here that I'm not so sure about.

I'm genuinely not sure if this is supposed to be good or bad.

As many people have said, this has been an amazing year for music so far, and I'm sure there's a lot more great stuff to come. My favorite so far is Vampire Weekend-Modern Vampires of the city, and I also really liked Wakin on a Pretty Daze, I Once was an Eagle, and m b v.

I'm really loving Hudson. It sounds like absolutely nothing else they've done.
