Topic: 2017 albums - an ongoing thread/review

Run the Jewels - ok, I know this was late 2016, but we're counting it in 2017. Am I the only one who doesn't fully get these guys? They're fine, they're good. It kind of gives me the same weird feelings i used to get in high school when white kids could recite every word off of The Chronic, or something. I also like their music in general and think they have some stellar songs, but I haven't really heard a lot of change or even a reason for them to keep releasing albums, tbh.

Miles Mosley - Kamasi Washington's bassist...this one comes out in a few weeks. I flipping love it.

Alison Crutchfield - I forget what this one is called. It comes out soon too but I love everything about it, and I wasn't like totally impressed by her 2014 album.

We need the birds.
I understand, but the files are organized alphabetically.

I used to actively listen to Company Flow in late nineties but, my friend played me a youtube of RTJ recently and I turned it off before it was over. Saw them for about a second at Day for Night fest, but they were outside and it got super cold and they didn't really hold my attention - I just remember blow up toys of their hands icon on stage, mostly . . . . Sounds like all their songs are a variation of the same party song which I'm not into - I know I'm biased because rap to me by this point is just so silly anyways -

Re: 2017 albums - an ongoing thread/review

yeah, I mean, they're skilled. But if I put all three of their albums on shuffle, I wouldn't necessarily be able to tell you which album a given song is from, which, like, there should be some evolution or change, right?

Re: 2017 albums - an ongoing thread/review

I mean, I need to get out more or something, but the only new album for 2017 that I care about is the new Jicks album.

Because it has to happen in 2017. It just has to.

Asked Mike about new Jicks music this year and his response was quite disturbing:
"Things are pretty quiet on the Jickstern front, but 2017 will probably demand some kind of action before it's over."

by "before it's over" he means before the year is over and not before the 'Jickstern front' is over ,right?

Re: 2017 albums - an ongoing thread/review

oh god. let's hope so, charky.

New Foxygen album...pretty good. Prettay prettay good.

Yes, Michigan. There have been some ostensibly promising leads but not much has changed "officially." Right now we're all sort of hoping that based on the agencies involved that it doesn't exactly seem like the way they'd be handling a case where they expected to find a body. :-/

Re: 2017 albums - an ongoing thread/review

i saw one of my wife's cousins (cousin-in-law? is that a thing?) from MI posting something on social media about a missing woman - likely the same case?

Could be. I don't want to turn the forum into a charity case or whatever but if you're interested in what's going on and on the off chance she's somewhere across the country:

https://www.facebook.com/FindDanielleStislicki/?fref=ts
https://www.gofundme.com/find-danielle-stislicki

And here is a picture of our oldest son a few years ago with a gift that she made for him: https://www.facebook.com/kate.guideau/p … 6979128378

As my wife says in the post, when our oldest was basically birth to 9 months or so, he was very much mommy only clingy. He didn't even want me to hold him hardly at all, which totally sucked, but it happens. smile Anyways, he always LOVED Aunt Dani.

We hadn't seen her much the 12 months before she disappeared because the relationship that tied her to our family broke off. But she was still a very good friend, and memories like the above don't just go away. Honestly, I have been a bit numb to this entire thing because 1) it seems so surreal and 2) the "distance" of the 12 preceding months. But it pops up and stings pretty nasty looking at that picture.

One last thing I'm compelled to say. I (and her family or other friends) would NEVER expect anyone to give a cent to the GoFundMe I linked above. But I have to mention that if you do feel the desire to give even five bucks, please know that the usage of the money as a reward for anyone that comes forward with vital information is now capped at $29k. All surplus will be used to help for other expenses. I don't know the details, but there has been talk about helping her family with the expenses of missing work, driving all over the area, etc., as well as looking into PIs.

Re: 2017 albums - an ongoing thread/review

yeah, that's the person my cousin-in-law posted about. Damn, dude. Absolutely heart-breaking. No need to apologize, and thanks for the info. I plan to give some to the cause this weekend. I'm sorry this is happening, and I can't imagine how you all must feel, and of course, first and foremost, I really hope she's found safe and sound. Good luck, and I'll keep following the story from here.

We just recently had a tragic story when someone a few blocks from me went missing - she was the yoga instructor who was murdered on Christmas day in DC, which made a few national outlets, and the story was absolutely heartbreaking.

Could really use some happy news in 2017, and we're only 6 days in. I guess that's what I was trying to do with this thread, just a "hey, the world is moving, new things are coming, we all love music, and there's new and good music being made" but it all feels so futile in the face of real loss.

Thanks Ed, I appreciate the thoughts. Definitely, talking music is a good thing to think about! Late 2016 was pretty nasty for multiple reasons, this a huge one of them (and, ahem, Trump), but there's a lot of good in the world so let's chin up and find it.

Re: 2017 albums - an ongoing thread/review

hypothesis: if you replaced the japandroids with a bunch of people writing parodies of japandroids tunes, no one would be able to tell the difference.

that foxygen album continues to grow on me. I think it's maybe a masterpiece, and I only kinda-sorta like foxygen.
