I don't know what you were listening to, but this version of "Sometimes I Don't Think" is excellent and gets me really excited for the new sound... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=de6FNueFkBM

"like an album of 'Wanderlust's but with no song as good as 'Wanderlust.'" is really a great way to put it. The climax of that song is exactly what the entirety of Boy King is missing.

Per my comment above - I was realllly looking forward to that one, but it's just not doing it for me. I'll give it a few more spins just to make sure.

That Angel Olsen album is FIRE. "Sister" is just an incredible song. Wild Beasts, on the other hand, really disappointed me. It's not the change of sound either - I can dig the synths, but the sneaky melodies from the previous albums just aren't there. It's just melodically a little flat.

Wait. William Hurt was in The Skeleton Key. William Hurt was in The Proposition. The Proposition was written by Nick Cave. https://media.giphy.com/media/eE8Sst3pZyofu/giphy.gif This has been another edition of 3 degrees of Nick Cave. Also, this movie looks awesome and the music sounds incredible.

Yea no I thought that Avalanches album was not good. It would've been really big 10 years ago though. This has been a slow period, but we're building up to LCD, Wild Beasts, Bon Iver, possibly Grizzly Bear, so lots to look forward to. As to your question, the Shura album is inconsistent but has some really high points; Tenement's collection of EPs is pretty damn good; Thee Oh Sees live album is surprisingly awesome; Whitney is pretty enjoyable. I've been listening to a lot of that Modern Baseball album, which has grown on me to the point of cracking my top 5 of the year, and Pinegrove, which is just unbelievably good. FWIW.

We could possibly be getting new LCD Soundsystem, Radiohead, Bon Iver and Fleet Foxes in the same year... http://www.reactiongifs.com/r/2013/10/tim-and-eric-mind-blown.gif

Well this is some news! I was a little underwhelmed with Star Wars (I know I know http://stream1.gifsoup.com/view5/3523462/debbie-downer-o.gif ), but "Locator" is great. Here's hoping Schmilco follows it's ramshackle-but-in-a-softer-way lead.

"It is my 10th or 11th time at Bonnaroo! That sounds like too much when it’s written out!" As someone who's never been to any large festival and can't foresee affording to go in the near future...fuck you.

I don't know what you all are on about, this album rips. The perfect middle ground between Civilian and Shriek.

"Fourth of July" and my personal favorite, "Blue Bucket of Gold" (which is, far and away, the best song I've ever seen in concert).

I had the same thought, and I feel ashamed for being curious about how dark it might get. Still, my sympathy to Nick Cave - what an awful thing to go through. I wouldn't have been surprised if he took a lot of time off. In fact, I was expecting it, so this is a pleasant surprise.

May 27, 2016 on New Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds Album Out In September
Whoa whoa, I don't need masterpieces, just full albums. Jeez. FTR, Girls' Broken Dreams Club is like 6 full songs, so I consider that pretty much a mini-album. The rest are fine but I never listen to them because there's just not enough music! I'm not trying to be pretentious either, it's really just a personal preference. Sorry.
