Shore is the best album of the year. White, male, indie band makes another stunning album and grows their legend even further, obviously isn't critic bait. But Fetch the Bolt Cutters wishes it had a run of bangers like Sunblind through Quiet Air. Fiona or any other critic favorite just doesn't measure up to Robin and the boys, sorry haters.
Abysmal Thoughts is a classic, that I still listen to all the time.
Shore is underrated on all these year end lists, every song on it is exceptional. Fiona Apple could work her whole life and never have a run of bangers like Sunblind through Quiet Air/Giola.
Totally forgot that the Nap Eyes album was great
1. Fleet Foxes- Shore 2. Dogleg- Melee 3. And Shauf- The Neon Skyline 4. Grimes- Miss Anthro 5. Bully- Sugar Egg 6 Rolling Coastal Blackout Fever- STNI 7. Westerman- Your Hero is Not Dead 8. Woods- Strange to Explain 9. The Strokes- the New Abnormal 10. MMJ- the Waterfall 2 Could list ten more great albums that came out this year, amazing year for albums, that made the lack of live hurt a little less.
Getting all the indie musicians together to record a benefit album so I can continue to praise the shittiest music in the world.
I’m still listening to MADLO, can’t wait to hear Deadlines(Hostile) and There Must Be More than Blood live
Deceiver is still so underrated.
Shore is incredible, that’s all!
Anak Ko is excellent and was severely underrated and under covered by music press.
The Fresh Blood playlist from earlier this year was really great I thought, excited for this.
It’s hard for me to think of anyone who has released two classics in the same year at the level of UFOF and Two Hands, really unbelievable by Adrienne and the crew.
Hype for this, Helplessness Blues is probably my fav album of all time.
I’m loving this indie cover fest started by the stereogum comp, I’m assuming. I think indie artists would benefit a lot by covering more songs live, as it brings in a lot more casual music fans and showcases your skill as a musician. It’s hard to enjoy songs you haven’t heard before live, and as indie artists are smaller in general, at a festival setting or what have you, most haven’t heard their songs. I’ve always thought that having a deep catalog is a big advantage that indie has over other genres, and the artists should showcase it by playing each other more. Also,re: Realiti(demo)>(album cut) and it’s not close.
The songwriting, for me, is just not really there on Ode to Joy, even the okay songs sound very slight to me. I just don't really like the sound of the entire album, the drums make the entire album sound disjointed. I'd be very surprised if you hear Wilco play many of those songs live in the upcoming years.
Ode to Joy was just not very good, but Warm was the best thing Tweedy has done since Sky Blue Sky, so hopeful for this.
Hope Bully gets a better push on this album, Losing was criminally underrated and most likely under promoted. Always excited about new Cut Copy as well, being as that they are probably the most underrated band of all time and Haiku From Zero was a masterpiece.
Imperoli also talked about hanging out with Keith Richards and what a dick Mick Jagger was on the podcast. He also said he was a “basically a groupie” for Galaxie 500 before he was cast on the Sopranos, fyi.
Man this makes me upset, really enjoyed the first season. All the characters were so great.
