Yes it was. I've got it on my own person albums of note to check out this week too, although I haven't even previewed any songs yet. Guess I'll just wait til Friday for the whole thang at this point.

Another AOTW article, another Aussie indie band left off the other notable albums list... What does Stereogum have against the land down under? Television by City Calm Down is also out this Friday. Some of you girls and boys around here like them, yeah? They've got a bit of a Killers vibe. Their debut In a Restless House is great (go listen to "Your Fix" now for proof)

Foxing was robbed. What more does Pitchfork want from them than Nearer My God!??

I feel like I knew and completely forgot they had albums before Hospice, but I can't help but think of this as their debut. Has anyone heard their first two? Are they even worth seeking out?

Yes. I tear up sometimes just thinking about some of the songs, forget about actually HEARING them...

“I can’t really kick it with him anymore on a personal level, just the energy,” Vernon says. “But I’ve got mad love for him, and we’re still friends.” "Kick it?" "Mad love?" Justin is a middle-aged whiter-than-white guy from Wisconsin, right? https://media.giphy.com/media/ifxLK48cnyDDi/giphy.gif

Ooh I love Here We Go Magic! Had no idea their frontman had a solo LP in the works, thanks for the heads up Tom.

I still haven't heard it either. Who else out there hasn't heard it yet? Who wants to start a I-Haven't-Heard-It-Yet Club? https://media.giphy.com/media/rIq6ASPIqo2k0/giphy.gif

August 12, 2019 on “Old Town Road” Is #1 For A Record 19th Week
+1 for Real Estate. Days is great, Atlas might be one of my favorite albums OF ALL TIME, and In Mind was still solid, if not quite hitting their highest highs ("Same Sun" is a top 10 Real Estate song though).

And oh yeah, Tame Impala are 3 for 3 in the 2010's as well. Looking forward to all the Official "Best of the Decade" lists and articles later this year wooooooo!!!!!

Yes, toss War on Drugs in there. Those 3 albums are things of beauty. I feel like 3 needs to be the minimum to count as one of the "best of the decade", otherwise I'd throw in Grizzly Bear as well. Loooove Shields, and Painted Ruins is basically just a hair from being as good.

Lot of good new songs this week, stiff competition fer sure, but I feel "Ultrasound" by Empty Country should have made the cut. It's been 3 years since new Cymbals Eat Guitars material so that hit the SPOT

You've got the goods to back it up, I'll give you that. Agree on The National's latest being kinda ehhh. Wish it had been 1/2 length and, sorry, but 100% Matty on vocals. That voice IS what makes The National's sound THE NATIONAL (well 50% of The National's sound, at least). Disagree on Spoon's run ending 2007, obviously. I've stood up for Transference so many times I'm even telling myself to shut up about it, but I thought everyone and their mom agreed They Want My Soul was Top Tier Spoon? And Hot Thoughts has a higher Metacritic score than both.... Speaking of, I can't dispute VM and BI's Metacritic scores. They higghhh. So I'm willing to admit - it must be me. I wish they clicked for me like seemingly mostly everyone else, but they both just rub me the wrong way. And there's definitely an air of pretension that turns me off...

Easily? Two best? I mean... obviously Spoon... but Deerhunter and The National have had pretty rock solid decades as well. It's up for debate...

Much like Vampire Weekend, Bon Iver is another act that, on paper, should be right up my alley. And yet, much like Vampire Weekend, Bon Iver just makes me... https://media.giphy.com/media/iA8jqAN2GXSTe/giphy.gif

Well they had a hell of a fucking streak. A 8.3, 8.2, and two 8's from the other site, always delivered 8+ score albums. Not many bands can make such a claim for their entire discography!

I kinda checked out after Mutilator Defeated at Last. Something happened in the transition to dropping the "Thee". More than enough material from their 2008-105 material to keep me satisfied. I'll casually check out the newest stuff but it's been meh for a while so the excitement is gone

No love for Ra Ra Riot's Superbloom in the Other albums section? That's weird... you guys reported on the pretty-great song with Rostam "Bad to Worse" back in March. Eh whatever, I'm looking forward to it!

What ITDOK said. Before I knew I was supposed to only like their first 2 albums, I actually think the 3rd was my favorite for a while... And without knowing their last album was supposed to just be fulfilling their RCA contract, I thought it was pretty much on par with their previous work. But what do I know

Kinda great? Best song of 2018! And that album had a lot of other good-to-great songs, c'mon!

Had no idea what the movie was about when I DVR'd it to watch, just saw the cast list and though "hey I like all of them." So that batshit twist from sci-fi to horror worked even better for me, on top of the way it was shot/directed/edited in a purposely confusing/distorted style. Very creepy, very effective.
