Welp I'm finally actually listening and this is incredible. I don't think I've ever heard them this funky! I was expecting a jammy freakout similar to their past couple albums (which I didn't like that much), but this is honestly incredible. and there's still 16 minutes left....

If he's not they can just pretend he's in the legacy spot on the lineup

I'm still trying to catch up to the bountiful of amazing music that dropped last Friday (the Black Midi album fucking rules and so does Mannequin Pussy) and then this monster is coming out on Friday! can't fucking wait

Fantastic album, been on constant repeat since it dropped. One of my rap AOTY frontrunners at the moment (that is, until Bandana arrives)

Needless to say, Face Stabber is an extremely Oh Sees name (and is a really fucking great one at that)

Why yes, Oh Sees album announcement season is my favorite season indeed

Don't forget Mutilator Defeated at Last which is a top three album from them easily (my favorite after Floating Coffin)!

Is this a popular opinion? Because I felt it was fantastic. Not a big fan of the dude's yelps but the music is insanely good so I can do with it

It has some obvious duds, but it also has Panini, which is a fucking banger

I swear that a couple weeks ago, a new song by him feat. Lizzo(!) appeared on Spotify, where it really was just a minute of Lizzo telling some story over weird, but quiet, sounds. I can't recall what it was called and I can't find it anymore, but it's too weird to be a dream and not a real thing

Dropdead preceeded Bandcamp Hardcore by almost 20 years, but yeah, that's that trifecta

Even if it was, they aren't nearly big enough for anyone to get excited over their song titles. But whatever, still looking forward to hearing it

This is pretty good, just my type of laid back beats. It feels like ages since I've heard a good Chance verse, so I'm enjoying this even more

June 17, 2019 on YBN Cordae – “Bad Idea” (Feat. Chance The Rapper) Video
The Eraser and AMOK are both fantastic albums (I'm especially fond of the former) and I'll even argue for Tomorrow's Modern Boxes being pretty good. I'm definitely looking forward for more

June 16, 2019 on New Thom Yorke Music Appears Imminent
Damn. This grooves real hard, Kali and Mac really compliment each other, and that Mac verse is both beautiful and devastating. "You get yours, of course, I get mine / And in the end, everything will be fine, that's by design" I don't know if it will ever be possible for me to hear him anymore and not get instantly sad. what a fucking loss. RIP Mac

This shit is so good. just in time for summer too. going to be on repeat for sure It sucks how slept on GoldLink is, for real, I can't believe this has article gotten only 2 comments in a whole day.

So anyone listen to that new GoldLink album yet? Super good stuff

yeah sorry this is definitely not the same as knocking the phone off of someone in the crowd. you're in the crowd, do what you want, as long as you're not annoying the people around you. you're somehow on stage? either dive into the crowd or get fucked

Oh yeah the new Dumb album rules and will probably creep into my list by the end of the year

Welp I didn't have time to go online yesterday and obviously missed this post, and going thru all these comments now will take forever, so just gonna highlight my contenders that are missing from this list somehow: 1. American Football - LP3 (my personal AOTY together with FOTB. seriously how the fuck is this missing) 2. Injury Reserve - Injury Reserve (rap album of the year so far!) 3. PIVOT Gang - You Can't Sit With Us 4. Frankie & The Witch Fingers - ZAM 5. OLAM - I Will Guide Thy Hand (seriously, I'll keep repping this album - it's so fucking good) 6. Tyler, the Creator - IGOR (obviously. why is this missing) 7. These New Puritans - Inside the Rose 8. Foals - Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost (Part I) 9. Flying Lotus - Flamagra 10. Cass McCombs - Tip of the Sphere

It's also the right choice considering it's one of the best albums of the year so far ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Really anticipating the Crumb album - the singles have all somehow snuck into constant repeat, never even knew I was into these guys but here we are. Part III is soooo good

Thanks for rooting for OLAM with me! Best heavy album of the year easily. Still on constant repeat

Yeah, incredibly dull, sounds like the lesser versions of what Shame and Idles managed to achieve on their great albums last year. Really not seeing it

This is probably the best possible way to deal with this situation. Classy as always

June 7, 2019 on The Shrek Soundtrack Is Finally Being Released On Vinyl
The self titled is one of my favorite albums of the past few years and I believe it's their best work outside of Bitte Orca. Up in Hudson might be my favorite DP song
