i'm so thrilled about some albums lately, but i don't want to make a new topic for each one, so here's the list:

DEERHUNTER - microcastle
i just discovered this a couple months ago, and it's easily one of the best albums i've ever heard. i can't stop listening to it!

THE HANDSOME FAMILY - honey moon
beautiful, nearly flawless album. rennie sparks never disappoints. great summer night album.

ANIMAL COLLECIVE - merriweather post pavillion
haven't stopped listening to this one since january. endlessly wonderful.

There was a Best of Fleetwood Mac album in the charity shop which I toyed with getting. 41 yo but thought I'm not ready for that yet.

Enjoying the new Liz Phair album.

I also bought a bunch of random CDs on a road trip I recently took. The big winner is one called The Notwist - The Devil, You + Me. Really great moody sleepy indie rock stuff.

New Jonny Polonsky single, great title! People are Lonely, Horny, Angry and Depressed. Has an Elvis Costello vibe, I like it.

New Dinosaur Jr album is a banger! This track has a bit of a Rockin in the Free World feel to it-

don't read, first hear the whole song (don't read the song description either)- Nirvana - Drowned in the Sun https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r1-B3M_KaRQ



anyway that's how i heard it on the radio, thinking "huh? i don't think i've heard that one before", after which the anchor explained that the song was made by artificial intelligence... i'm mildly scared...

It's quite a different experience to what I would have imagined I'd get from a BOC album. If someone had played the track "Stand and Fight" to me and told me it was the new Megadeth song I'd probably have believed them.

Also, hadn't seen that pre-core, definitely one to remember (and interesting to hear his thoughts on the outro).

Black Mountain - Destroyer
Blue Osyter Cult - The Symbol Remains
The Chap - Digital Technology

Well, that's a whole different thing.

If you are getting into TMBG for the first time I'd recommend different albums. My favorites are Lincoln and John Henry, followed by Apollo 18, their first album, and Flood. Then possibly I Like Fun and Join Us...but also a lot of their best songs are b-sides and rarities or on weird compilations....However if you specifically want NEW MUSIC, then yeah, I Like Fun is really great. Bleak and funny and cynical and of course, fun.

I highly recommend my own TMBG podcast to take you on the journey if you think you really want to dig in. We actually discuss Frank Black quite a lot and even played an exclusive rare Frank demo provided to me by one of his drummers at one point...

It's so easy to get to a point where you've reached a critical mass of music you enjoy, to just go and find something you already know you love/haven't heard in a while and 'spin' it again instead of challenging yourself with a new band. And once you're not going out to see new bands and being exposed to new things, you either fall on the radio/podcasts or friends with good taste to guide you, and I really don't even have a musical podcast I love anymore either. So I watch for new releases from artists I already know I like and as they stop producing, the well goes slowly dry.

It's a sad state of affairs and one I never thought I'd let myself be in but I'm glad to hear that I'm not alone!

I find myself there quite a bit, too, Cult_Of_Frank. I've been looking for creative ways to find music lately. I recently Googled "best music for testing headphones" or something like that. That actually helped me strike a new vein. It didn't really help me find any new artists, but it helped me listen to music in a somewhat different way than I normally do.

But I do have one album suggestion ó from 2020, try Nathaniel Rateliff's "And It's Still Alright."

In the same boat. I hate all new music. Even bands I like have often disappointed me. I just listen to older stuff. Though I guess my answer would be my post up above, the new Young Fresh Fellows album is a lot of fun. I'm hoping the new Liz Phair is good. I liked the new Morrissey too last year.

I guess my number one pick would be I Like Fun by They Might Be Giants from 2018. One of their best albums and so deep into their career.

New Young Fresh Fellows album.

Fun energetic catchy rock, I think everyone here would like this a lot:

Thank you for sharing that, unreal!

And the fact that he has a version of the black lodge in his house is too funny

Ellie Rowsell is back with more good stuff, with her band Wolf Alice. She is becoming a national treasure, one of the best bands around in these times. She is an indie rock godess. I think there upcoming new album might be the start of their or her long career in music. I hope she does a film or something and goes into acting.

Does anyone want to talk to me about the drastic decline of Barenaked Ladies with the departure of Steven Page a decade ago

No one I know likes them or is interested in them, my girlfriend can only take so much about a band she doesn't care about

I find it so incredibly fascinating. I could write a book on this one topic. One of the most jarring examples of "can you believe this album is put out by the same band who made that album" sort of things.

I've been devouring Nathaniel Rateliff's catalogue nonstop for the last week.

I remember Black Hearted Love in 2009, really great PJ Harvey song and video. I've always liked her, but I've never seen her like this before? John Parish was her original muse. This is pure gold, I recommend watching all of it. PJ Harvey as you might have never seen her before

Dry Cleaning are back with a new song and an album coming out in April. More talky vocals and Pixies-esque basslines and guitars.

Any other Langhorne Slim fans here? His new album is fucking good.
