    Default Tell Us About 2017 Releases

    Mouse on The Keys " Out of Body" is enjoyable but I feel like it's slower than their older stuff.

    Xiu Xiu "Forget" is less abrasive and noise music than "Angel Guts: Red Classroom". I think more people will like this because it's way more accessible with again Jamie making really great beats.

    I got snowed in two weeks ago and started listening to new music. I came across a single from an LA afro-funk band called Jungle Fire that was really rippin'. It's from their soon-to-be-released second album, and they've got me really excited for it. Check 'em out:



    I found them when looking for info on my favorite indie cumbia band, Quitapenas, who have one of the Jungle Fire dudes producing their new one, which is due this year.

    Ugh. I really liked the first single and it's looking like that's going to be the only decent track on the entire thing. I was really looking forward to this release too. The new Cloud Nothings seems promising though

    To be 100% honest, I am not a huge fan of Japandroids in general, but I don't think their fans will like this one much either.

    Yeah, I could only listen to that single once. Super disappointing. (But hey, less disappointed they're not at Coachella now!)

    The new Arcade Fire track almost sounds like they're writing the theme for a new season of The Wire. This is not a bad thing!

    I really didn't like the new Gorillaz song. I know their albums are different enough that this doesn't necessarily reflect any particular direction they're going, but it sure was a weak way to come back after 6 years.

    Yeah, it was anti-climactic for sure. I hope it works better in the context of the album.

    I didn't even get through the whole thing, but unless the last few tracks are dramatically better, I doubt I will revisit this one.

    The National are mixing the new album as we speak (or may be done), per a buddy of mine who met the guy mixing it in a studio in Philadelphia. 100% sure of my source.

    The apocalyptic industrial noise punk of Uniform's Wake in Fright is the perfect soundtrack to today's inauguration.

    I really liked the singles that were up on bandcamp daily and am looking forward to this. I'm going to listen to it once I stop listening to this Vitalic track on repeat.

    Maybe this is the wrong thread for speculation, but do you guys think it will be possible for RATM and SOAD to resist writing new material sometime in the next year or two...or four?

    Not that anyone here really cares but AFI's latest is, at least within their own discography, largely forgettable.

    This Japandroids album is horrible. So disappointing.

    In other news, the Cloud Nothings new one is great.

    I only listened to the stream once, but I love the Cloud Nothings record. I really like that the major difference between each record is the production. It adds something new every time without taking away what makes the band great.

    I've never been huge on Japandroids (Liked, but never loved them) and I don't think the new one is as terrible as people are saying. It's alright, it's melodramatic, but there is also Arc of Bar, which I just love. I think it's the thing they've done that's stuck with me the most.

    The new Cloud Nothings is indeed really good. They keep some of the explosive sound, but go in a more melodic direction. I need to give it a few more listens before I can really parse it, but so far I like it a lot.

    Same with the new Ty Segall. Emotional Mugger was a small and intentionally ugly record. I dug it, but it didn't have a memorable core to it. The new one definitely does: it finds him working the whole Manipulator/Twins/Goodbye Bread feel, calmer but working a wide range of material into a single album. After a few listens, it's my favorite thing he's done since Slaughterhouse: the songs are just so good.

    Just popping in to also say cloud nothings made another great album. Besides that first one, everything they have put out really grabs me. A cloud nothings/car seat headrest tour would be much appreciated.

    I completely wrote off Foxygen after ... And Star Power, but their new LP Hang isn't as bad as I expected it to be. The first two-thirds are actually pretty fun grab-bags of 70s maximalism, especially "Avalon." The last third sucks ass, but I've usually gotten my fix at that point anyways.

    Not sure how many fans the band has here and not sure of release date, but Kasabian have a new one coming out this year. Their manager is saying it's amazing. Definitely my most anticipated along with the new QOTSA that's rumored.

    I'm going to throw this out there and run and duck for cover. I actually really like the Japandroids record. More polished, certainly. Lyrically... not great. But very accessible and a fun background record to an quiet evening's heavy drinking.
