    Ella Mai dropped some new stuff if you're a fan of r&B. Anymore, Makes Me Wonder, Breakfast In Bed are my favorite tracks right now. Easy find on Youtube.

    Pile's new single has me hyped. Cool to see that noise rock isn't entirely dead, and I'm really looking forward to seeing how the album turns out.

    the latest mount eerie album came out a couple weeks ago now, and wow it's really good. i didn't listen to it at first because i saw it getting a mix of flack and praise, and i didn't know who mount eerie is so i just didn't bother. i (admittedly) only learned today that mount eerie is one of phil elverium's (the guy from the microphones) projects. i'm not really a huge fan of his work because i'm not too familiar with it outside the glow part 2, but this album still blew me away honestly.

    it's a very personal album about his wife who died recently from cancer, and i noticed that most of the flack this album is getting comes from people who don't like when death related albums get a lot of praise. i don't think this is a revolutionary album or anything by any means, but i think he does a great job of just portraying how much someone suddenly dying sucks. it's so sad but so straightforward.

    If you havent heard A Crow Looked At Me by Mount Eerie, its painful to listen to the entire album, and in this case, I do not mean that in a negative way

    I think the thing I like about Kendrick is that he's not only lyrically incredible, but his voice is such an instrument too. It's just so pleasing to listen to, even if you're not paying attention to the lyrics specifically. Greatest rapper alive.

    (also conspiracy theorists say he's dropping another album on Sunday????)

    kendrick was aight, honestly most of the songs were pretty good but i wasnt blown away or anything like that. the bass on humble will always get me tho.

    on the other hand...cartis tape dropped and honestly its really fucking good aside from the track with the rocky feature. might not be everyones cup of tea but i would definitely check it out

    2017 albums I've listened to so far
    Linkin Park - One More Light - 2/10 (open)
    Booji Boys - s/t - 3/10 (open)
    Just really forgettable. The lo-fi is really annoying on this album and doesn't add much to the music. There are some nice guitar parts though
    Gorillaz - Humanz - 3/10 (open)
    At least when I listened to the Booji Boys album I only wasted 20 minutes of my life, I wasted more than twice as much with this garbage. There were maybe two songs where I didn't have the urge to just skip it half way through
    Lorde - Melodrama - 4,5/10 (open)
    Listened to this because of all the hype. I think Lorde's voice is suited to slow burners like most tracks on Pure Heroine. There are some ok songs like Sober and Writer in the Dark but the other songs are just boring pop.
    Grails - Chalice Hymnal - 5/10 (open)
    Roger Waters - Is This The Life We Really Want? - 5,5/10 (open)
    Déjà Vu got me kinda excited because its quality was higher than Amused to Death and The Final Cut, but besides Déjà Vu and The Last Refugee I thought it was pretty boring. It's better than most late PF albums though, but not quiet as good as Amused to Death
    Thundercat - Drunk - 6/10 (open)
    Has some nice songs, but not something I like to listen to longer than 20 minutes.
    KGLW - Murder of the Universe - 6/10 (open)
    Not as interesting as Nonagon Infinity. I know KGLW likes repetition but at least on Nonagon/Banana they did it with something new, now they're just repeating their older stuff again. Alter Me / Altered Beast is a great start though
    Mount Eerie - A Crow Looked at Me - 6/10 (open)
    It's not that I dislike music dealing with tragic events so directly, but with this album I feel like it is so focussed on the lyricism, that everything else just doesn't sound interesting enough to listen to for over 40 minutes. It's a 6/10 because it got some realy great lyrics, but that's pretty much it for me.
    Spoon - Hot Thoughts - 6/10 (open)
    First few songs are pretty nice. Nothing too exceptional.
    Exquirla - Para quienes aún viven - 6.5/10 (open)
    Love some of the songs here, even though I have no idea what they're actually singing about. Destruidnos juntos is great. The shorter songs are kinda underwhelming. Didn't like the closer either
    Richard Dawson - Peasant - 7/10 (open)
    Ogre, Prostitute, Scientist, Beggar and Masseuse are great. Don't really care too much about the other songs.
    Slowdive - s/t - 7,5/10 (open)
    I never actually listened to Souvlaki in its entirety, but after listening to this, I definitely will soon. The album got some great moments, especially on the first half, though it took me a few listens to really like it.
    King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard - Flying Microtonal Banana - 7,5/10 (open)
    I don't really care that much about the whole microtonal thing King Gizzard is experimenting with. I just like the song structures on most songs. Especially songs like Melting and Billabong Valley are pretty good. Even the opening track, which is basically just saying rattlesnake for 8 minutes, doesn't get boring.
    Flotation Toy Warning - The Machine That Made Us - 8/10 (open)
    Not a big indie pop fan but still decided to give this album a chance and I sure don't regret it. Most songs are around 5-7 minutes, but I feel like each one of them has enough content to stay interesting for that time. The last and also longest song shows that 5-7 minutes should really be the max for these songs because it kinda becomes repetitive after a while. The shorter songs are alright.


    Looking forward to the new LCD Soundsystem, not much else I'm really hyped for
