Big week but I'm all about Preoccupations. Album is just as good as Viet Cong. Cymbals Eat Guitars is also great. Best they've done since their debut.

I'm torn on this album right now. I feel so selfish to be indulging in such a macabre album, knowing that it's existence is only because of Arthur's death. Cave's sung about death for years, but now it's so much more personal and impacting. I love the album, but feel bad about loving it. I wish it didn't exist...

I too started with DLD and I thought it was a great introduction. His wordplay and narrative in that is more playful and upbeat but the content is just as scathing as his previous work. Call Upon the Author is wonderful.

Agreed. I'm surprised they didn't include any of Nirvana on the list. But not much to complain about, gave me some extra music to check out.

This band's great, and their album is one of my favorites from this year. Wish they'd tour the US.

They've been really consistent for the last few years. I don't know if this will be there best but so far all of the singles have been great. Really anticipating this album.

The photos for the tour poster were taken from a studio. I'd expect new music soon. Which is a very good thing.

I'm all about that Wild Beasts album this week. Plus Preoccupations and Angel Olsen leaked so that'll keep me busy.

It's probably b/c there's only one original member left and their subsequent 2000's albums have gotten progressively worse.

Great track. Totally forgot about this guy. Loved his last album.

If you haven't checked out Omni's "Deluxe" you'd do yourself a favor to get on that. Definitely my AOTW. It's so damn good.

Ya know, I listened to everything today for the first time and the only one that really stuck out to me was the new Deerhoof. It's really damn good.

I'd also like to note that To Be Kind was my #1 of 2014, and the Seer is still a modern masterpiece to me. I just feel its more of the same thing, which is just okay, but not necessarily that great.

Agreed. It's overly self-indulgent to me. When I saw it clocking in at 2 hours, and the first two tracks were like 10+ minutes each of nothing but mantra/chanting crap, I was fearful. Unnecessarily excessive.

Despite P4K shitting on it b/c of the Koz track, the Minor Victories LP is stellar. Also, Mourn. Pretty stacked week again, imo.

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.
