That new Milo album is flying criminally under the radar. Literally one of the best people putting words together in music.

I defer to Run the Jewels on this one, who (IMO) had one of the more flawless album rollouts in recent memory for RTJ2 (3 singles in 2 months, with steadily building momentum after each one). Different rules might apply now, though, given the new War on Drugs/Grizzly Bear/National records have been coming out for the last 4-5 months now (or in LCD's case, over a year and a half??).

This album's one to watch out for - splits the difference between artificiality and naturalism beautifully. Reminds me of The Knife if, instead of leaving the forest every so often to scorn humanity, they stayed there and reveled in their own abstract concept of us.

Not a huge fan of the "what does it MEAN to be an indie rock act in 2017?" narrative for every indie rock act releasing an album in 2017. Y'all started repping artists working in other genres something fierce and act shocked that indie's grasp on the culture is more tenuous now. This is shaping up to be a monster based on the singles.

If Oneohtrix comes through with that Good Time OST...I dunno. Between that, and Returnal, and Replica, and R Plus Seven, and Rifts, and Garden of Delete, we might have to start talking about him in terms befitting a GOAT electronic artist.

Must be nice to be able to discard urbanity when it suits you.

Future, Thug, Keef and now Tyler all made singing albums in 2017. What a moment we're in.

Not even any horror elements, really! Just a potent drama about grief/loss that somehow forces you to watch its lead wear a sheet for ~75 minutes with a straight face. Likely seeing Homecoming at some point this weekend, though I still think the OG Spider-Man 2 is a high water mark subsequent superhero flicks have yet to clear.

I still think about his verse on Erykah Badu's 2015 mixtape regularly. Right there with you.

Really glad to see him repped here. "Saturday Night" is one of the best songs of the year, and the best celebration of hard-earned success I've heard since "Famous." Whole album mostly delivers, too - didn't see it coming.

It reminded me of Yeezus, which isn't a comparison I make lightly. Just a stunning work, man.

The current wave of experimental electronic artists - and their progression of releases these last few years - has been quite a thing to behold and watch unfold. This is really great. Up there with Quarantine; better, maybe.
