No Big Thief? What about Attic Abasement? Those are the two I'm most looking forward to.

Very happy to see this getting the AOTW. Fantastic album, and a fantastic review for it too, speaking precisely to the things that I enjoy about it. If you've struggled to get into his previous work, I think you may need to dig a bit deeper into it and see his progression. Twin Fantasy, How to Leave Town, and Nervous Young Man are all fabulous. Drunk Drivers is my SOTY so far too. Love this whole album.

I think it's their best actually, precisely for the reasons listed here.

I know that its often stated that PE is a higher honor than AOTW, but I do recall a certain PE for a Modest Mouse record last year that in no way encouraged it to be that great of a record (which it isn't). In any case, new Woods is better than new M83.

April 8, 2016 on Roots Rock: How Woods Became An Indie Institution By Staying DIY
Good choice, PC's done some really solid stuff for the last few years. This won't beat Sunbathing Animal or Content Nausea for me though. This week it's Deftones and Woods for me. Both are top notch albums by consistent artists. I'm still eager to listen to the new Ben Watt album, and I don't know what to think about M83. I haven't enjoyed any of the singles thus far, but I love Saturdays=Youth a lot. So we'll see. Looks like a few under the radar releases to check out: Polonium Peach Summer Flake and there's a new Future of the Left album? Didn't even realize they were still together.

March 29, 2016 on Album Of The Week: Black Mountain IV
Totally agreed. I've always loved Black Mountain. They've got 4 extremely solid LPs over the last 10 years and each one is chocked full of rock creaminess. Favorite track is Cemetery Breeding. It's a great week for releases. Weezer's White Album, I gotta say, I can't believe its 2016 and I'm digging a Weezer radio single like "Thank God for Girls," but here we are. Not to mention solid albums from Frankie Cosmos Tancred Operators Tacocat Autolux and a slew of gems just waiting to be uncovered. Stereogum, you're my hero. Marry me.

I look forward to the AOTW not usually for the actual AOTW but your list of albums that also come out. It's way better than going to P4K for some soggy review of an album they listened to once. I've found a good amount of worthwhile albums just from your weekly lists - like Ulrika Spacek and Soft Fangs (from last week). So, thank you for this. It's really helpful!

PPD is definitely a surprise. Enjoyed it so far. This week wasn't really stellar for releases pertaining to my taste, but that Gun Outfit EP is excellent. I'll need to check out Underworld.

I've only given the album a once through so far, but outside of Ultra Light Beam, nothing really grabbed me like it has on his previous albums. I agree though, I think people really want to love it, but in due time it'll just be seen as a solid album, not the masterpiece it's being touted as presently.

Ridiculously consistent. Haven't made a bad album yet, but my personal favorite is With Light and With Love.

February 23, 2016 on Woods – “Can’t See At All”
I'm actually quite excited for the Death Index LP. David Vassalotti's LP from a few weeks back was solid too. Those Merchandise guys are certainly talented on their own.

For me it's definitely Cavern of Anti-Matter feat. Bradford Cox - Liquid Gate. That song is the tits. Also digging the new Deftones track.

Basically if you were to take Women and split them into two separate ideas, they'd be Viet Cong and Cindy Lee. The experimental aspects of Women are all captured in Cindy Lee, whereas the post-punk influences all went to Viet Cong. It's a bit of a challenge at first because you're not expecting the sound, but after giving it quite a bit of time, it's jumped up my year end list significantly.

No Age released a few demos earlier this year of material set to be on their next LP, which I'd assume is 2016 as well.
