Can't take credit for "recommending" them, but I've always spoken fondly of them. Glad to hear you like 'em!

Re: 2017 albums - an ongoing thread/review

Anyone listened to the Pile album (A Hairshirt of Purpose)?? I'm not saying it sounds like Pavement or the Jicks but the guitar work is very similar. At least (and especially) in spirit more than the actual playing perhaps but the stuff's great.

Ch-ch-ch-check 'em out!

i knew of them from being on Matador, but really discovered them from the CD World clerk in 2000.    i was immediately hooked. He was playing ASOF. and always suggested great records to me.  I didn't know enough about music then, and still don't know enough now.  but at the time i was forcing it down everyone's throats claiming that they sound just like Pavement! 
they've gone way off course since then.  but i still love every release.  Britt's vocals and guitar attacks are just mesmerizing.  "mathematical mind" is spoon at it's spooniest.  and is everything i love about them. and Ga*5 is their peak.  haven't had a chance to sit down with the new one yet.  but looking forward to it.

Just listened to their new album! Better than expected since I thought the single (Half Believing) was kinda meh and thought they may had done a "commercial" softer album....But I like it on first listen and Half Believing isn't bad. Fits in.
Which album of theirs is your fav?

Re: 2017 albums - an ongoing thread/review

It's all new stuff that I've been into recently.

Like this new Sneaks album (well, 10 songs in 18 minutes):
https://f4.bcbits.com/img/a2725607831_10.jpg
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rinFWMZUGE&t=25s

Minimalist one woman with bass guitar band.
Just some freeflowing attitude, but funny too. Did they just make this up? Sure sounds like it, but in a good way.

The Coco Hames album is all I hoped for:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kOQ9ZJJc2-M
From a venerable garage rock dynasty, with added country flavor.

It's going over well in all the music press -it's got that 'authenticity'-, but I can't hold it against it. Love it. James Xerxes Fussell:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L-cfhokanYs

As always, there's some off-beam surrealist stuff going on where I live.
Brutal groove stuff from Gruppo di Pawlowski hits all the right buttons. Can't make heads or tails of it, but Mauro Pawlowski never fails me, ever since his early Evil Superstars work.

I like this album a lot. It's got drums! I really love this band. I hate myself for not going to their show last night but I was overcome by tardness.

Re: 2017 albums - an ongoing thread/review

For those of you who like Kevin Morby...His new album won't dissappoint. It's  as excellent as his previous ones. If you haven't ch-ch-checked him out...well...you should.

Re: 2017 albums - an ongoing thread/review

Since you brought it up, let's talk about it briefly. I'm not the biggest arcade fire fan or aficionado, but I like some songs off of the suburbs. They've never been my "jam" per se. But I checked out the everything now record, & it's hard for me to listen to. Something about it seems so ingenuine and vapid. It's uninviting to listen to. The lyrics just feel out of place, clumsy, and lazy, and the way Butler rap-sings them... the whole thing makes me feel uneasy while I'm listening, which is something that's hard to find in a record.
