    Really enjoying this year, tons of interesting stuff, but just not a knock-out year for albums - Can't think of personal best album of year from any other year this decade - Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, Let England Shake, The Seer, Sometimes I Sit and Think..., Teens Of Denial etc, etc, that wouldn't be an easy number one against the totality of this year's field. That said, these titles have emerged as my early favs...

    Top Dogs
    Run The Jewels 3
    Lorde - Melodrama
    The Xx - I See You
    Mount Eerie - A Crow Looked At Me
    Valerie June - The Order Of Time
    Slowdive
    Algiers - The Underside Of Power
    Fujiya & Miyagi
    Wolf Parade - Cry Cry Cry
    St. Vincent - Mass Seduction

    Second Tier Of Goodness
    LCD Soundsystem - American Dream
    Kendrick Lamar - Damn
    Juana Molina - Halo
    Protomartyr - Relatives In Descent
    Pumaroa - The Witch
    IDLES - Brutalism
    Nicole Atkins - Goodnight Rhonda Lee
    Bing & Ruth - No Home Of Mind
    Ex Eye
    Marika Hackman - I'm Not Your Man
    Brand New - Science Fiction
    Neil Young - Hitchhiker
    Nadine Shah - Holiday Destination
    William Basinski - A Shadow In Time
    Jens Lekmen - Life Will See You Know

    Been casting a very wide but shallow net this year, probably listened to over two hundred 2017 releases to date but most only a single time, as I really dig in now to fifty or so I've like best expect tremendous movement and changes in this list.

    First impression of FTP is it sucks. The last album was so promising! (Foster the People)

    Holy cow the King Gizzard & the Wizard Lizard are now my favorite band! I finally started listening to them. Microtonal tuning. My new favorite music term. I mean, Dungen is really always number 1. Especially if they come through and play my wedding.
