Just saw Wavves and FIDLAR last week and believe again that there is still hope for music.
Can we just take a moment to sit in awe at what 2013 has given us. New MBV, David Bowie and Justin Timberlake; three artists where most of us were comfortable with the fact that we might not ever see them put out new music ever again. Plus we have the first Bad Seeds album in 5 years and are days away from leaks of albums from the Knife and Daft Punk. AND IT'S ONLY FUCKING MARCH. At this pace, we could see a new Boards of Canada album by mid-May.

wow zach hill played drums for wavves? sounds awesome.
If there was ever an album to actually not be heard until the day of its release, it would be the new daft punk album.
RS is streaming the new Charles Bradley Album: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/ne...#ixzz2OqS6CCdg
Was really hoping we would get this guy on the polo fields this year, he's the real deal. Also his backing band, Menahan Street Band, is probably the tightest funk/soul outfit on the scene right now.
Fuck you. I was shitfaced and gushing.

I finally just got around to listening to the new Iceage record and god damn is it amazing. Definitely my favorite punk album in a long while. †hese dudes really should have been booked this year.
A friend said the new Wavves sounds like Sum 41, which has me interested

The new Milk Music might take some getting used to, and didn't have me jumping up and down and cheering right away like that EP did. It's actually got a lot more in common with The Men's past two records (especially in regards to the odd pacing and various styles used) than it does with that first EP, which was just a wonderful fuzz feast from start to finish.
And I'm not sure if I mentioned it here before, but the only time I had listened to the bad rip of the new Flips record was in a drunken stupor at 3am and at that point I was convinced it was a masterpiece. I listened to it in full today, and it's really out there and great but not quite what I made it out to be the first time around, haha.
The new Sasha is so good. I'm glad that dude is still making music...if only more house artists would take his lead.
Lapalux's whole new LP is worth multiple spins. A menagerie of songs that showcase a lot of different talents and great sampling. Strong work from him.
Enjoy the new LP from Miles Whitaker (1/2 of Demdike Stare)
