This was a solid choice, and King Gizzard is decent. I haven't enjoyed any of the tracks from the new Dirty Projectors album, but I've always felt them to be hit or miss. I'm mostly excited for the Feelies.

Such a stellar week. Ty Segall and Priests especially. Really looking forward to Stef Chura and Allison Crutchfield too. Japandroids and Cloud Nothings are two bands who started out really well, hit a peak, and now just make decent rock. I don't hate the new releases but they are still lacking overall. P4K gave a pretty fair assessment of it actually. It's nothing special (and I had Celebration Rock in my top 5 of 2012, Post-Nothing in my top 5 of 2009). This one just kind of lacks.

Another excellent addition to his already amazing catalogue. It's on par with his best work imo. Papers is wonderful.

It's a solid record, but I don't think it's anything memorable honestly. I'm enjoying the Priests record way more.

Yeah the new Priests, new Japandroids, and 100% the new Slowdive song would be on mine.

I'd assume getting hit by a car and nearly becoming paralyzed, kind of changes your perspective on things. Kudos to them for playing an accessible setlist, and further kudos for their regular shows (prior to the KoL) where they've closed with Twilight at Carbon Lake and Nothing Ever Happened in Knoxville.

It was intriguing until the end. Extremely disappointing.

I love everything about this announcement. 90s style crap album cover art, as well as very JAMC song titles. Can't wait.

Kudos for Cass McCombs and Ian Sweet, they've been criminally overlooked by a lot of places. I disagree though, Radiohead, Anderson paak, and CSH all put out albums better than Kanye.

any of you remember Male Bonding? They put out 2 solid records in 2010 and 2011, but haven't done anything since then. Until today. They just put up their 3rd album for free streaming on Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/male-bonding-promo/sets/headache

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...

September 13, 2016 on Premature Evaluation: Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds Skeleton Tree
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.

September 13, 2016 on Premature Evaluation: Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds Skeleton Tree
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.
