Yes it's shameful but I've started a list:

So far:

The XX - Say Something Loving
Brian Eno - Reflection excerpt (this actually counts as a 2017 album not a song but spotify has it as an excerpt so...)

Actually 2016 singles but full albums get released this month

Grouper - I'm Clean Now
Ondatropica - Lazalypso

I'm gonna mention the new Krallice even though it was released on December 21

Dinsdale, Monday, 2 January 2017 19:25 (eight months ago) Permalink

Moka, are you saying there's a new Grouper in 2017?

Everything Moves Towards The Sun (Ross), Monday, 2 January 2017 19:39 (eight months ago) Permalink

Yes! And if these two are any indication it will be the best thing she has released since 2007.

Updated playlist to include new jesus & mary chain, cafe tacvba and Ibibio Sound Machine

Where is there word that a new Grouper album is confirmed for 2017?

Evan, Tuesday, 3 January 2017 20:30 (eight months ago) Permalink

Insider intel.

Well, not really... I was sure I read about it somewhere but I've been searching and I can't find anything... maybe I suck and I'm wrong and I just got you excited over nothing.

dance cum rituals (Moka), Tuesday, 3 January 2017 20:47 (eight months ago) Permalink

Great news! So the new LP is called I'm Clean Now, or are you referring to the single?

flappy bird, Tuesday, 3 January 2017 20:50 (eight months ago) Permalink

I looked thoroughly online but see no reference to a LP. Hoping for one of course :)

Everything Moves Towards The Sun (Ross), Tuesday, 3 January 2017 20:58 (eight months ago) Permalink

Great news! So the new LP is called I'm Clean Now, or are you referring to the single?

― flappy bird

She released a 7" with two new songs (I'm Clean Now / Headache) called Paradise Valley on Dec. 21st. New LP is a rumor that apparently I started because I can't find any info about it so... noone know if there's actually a new LP coming up or what its name is.

new-old Elliott Smith song "I Figured You Out" is stunning:

New Ariel Pink & Weyes Blood collab song "Tears on fire" is catchy as hell, chorus is jarring on first listen but the whole thing has grown on me. Probably my favorite thing he's been involved in years.

2017 so far: the Brian Eno album, Laster - Ons vrije fatum (black metal) and the Kevin Hufnagel EP The Protected Shards.

oh and this track from the upcoming Avec le Soleil Sortant de sa Bouche album:

the black crowes thread bump got me to pull out their greatest hits tonight. i'm a few american domestics deep and thoroughly enjoying it.

i've also been playing the sheer mag ep from last year and some select lee hazlewood.

what does "a few american domestics deep" mean?

He's presumably talking about beer, not domestic disturbances.

I haven't been too keen on recent Paul Weller but this one is him at his soulful velvety best imo

An Alan Bennett Joint (Michael B), Tuesday, 24 January 2017 00:06 (eight months ago) Permalink

you're going to have to do better than "at his soulful velvety best" to get me to listen to Paul Weller...

Headphone Jack (seandalai), Tuesday, 24 January 2017 01:00 (eight months ago) Permalink

I had to come up with's a nice track if you like smooth, lush 70s soul. Sounded perfect strolling in the countryside yesterday morning

An Alan Bennett Joint (Michael B), Tuesday, 24 January 2017 01:50 (eight months ago) Permalink

I have just been listening to that Senyawa album from late last year, I think. It is totally out there world music drone type gear with some marvellous Tibetan throat style chanting vocals.

i really like this SACRED PAWS - Strike a Match debut

Mordy, Saturday, 28 January 2017 16:32 (seven months ago) Permalink

Very much enjoyed the new Temples (not the mathrock one) single "Strange or Be Forgotten" -- kinda Super Furry Animalish. I guess they were playing it live last year but recorded it this year...

Man. The new Julie Byrne album just knocks me off my feet, every time. Whispery folky singer-songwriter so good I've not heard since the last great albums by Julie Doiron or Laura Veirs ~ and both have been a while. So stark, so gorgeous.

Have you heard Julie Byrne's live cover of Photobooth by Death Cab? She takes it to another level... there's something about her performances which really gets to me and I usually hate that emo lyrics + folk guitar combo.

dance cum rituals (Moka), Tuesday, 31 January 2017 18:29 (seven months ago) Permalink

She recently showed up on my release radar, enjoyed it but couldn't figure out if it was the kind of singer songwriter material the world has plenty of already

niels, Tuesday, 31 January 2017 19:49 (seven months ago) Permalink

Hell no. She's really something else. Give her a shot.

Le Bateau Ivre, Tuesday, 31 January 2017 19:59 (seven months ago) Permalink

Julie Byrne's "Prism Song" was one of my favourites from 2014, so cool to be reminded me of her now. Will need to check the album out :)

Everything Moves Towards The Sun (Ross), Wednesday, 1 February 2017 07:58 (seven months ago) Permalink

I like her but I wouldn't say she's something else, I'm just a sucker for that kind of stuff (Alela Diane, Marissa Nadler etc.). I prefer Rooms With Walls and Windows but this one is solid too.

Dinsdale, Wednesday, 1 February 2017 08:51 (seven months ago) Permalink

Have you heard Julie Byrne's live cover of Photobooth by Death Cab?

I think you're thinking of Julien Baker.

a serious and fascinating fartist (Simon H.), Wednesday, 1 February 2017 11:08 (seven months ago) Permalink

now there's a unique singer songwriter!

niels, Wednesday, 1 February 2017 13:02 (seven months ago) Permalink

Hah I was thinking Julien Baker. I love her.

I also like Julie Byrne but yeah I was actually talking about Baker.

dance cum rituals (Moka), Wednesday, 1 February 2017 17:41 (seven months ago) Permalink

I'm not much into emo lyrics but her singing is very genuine so I'll buy in... also she's such a good guitar player! I'm yet to hear a live performance of her where she doesn't have a great tone on her guitar.

I sampled his/their latest EP just to see if it sounded like the character's hilarible sound effects collages from the series, and it only sorta did a little bit.

Btw: the Todd Terje main track is itself a rework of such a rare beast as a 1982 Norwegian synthpop single. Youtube here.

I was staying in a pub near Hawarden for work last month and they had this channel on that played all this weird and wonderful music but I didn't have a pen with me to write any of it down but I was able to get another guest to record this for me.

boxedjoy, Wednesday, 20 September 2017 18:16 (four days ago) Permalink

Perversely unmentioned to date:

Colin Stetson - All This I Do for Glory (you know what to expect, close/contact mic sax aping minimalists, good but diminishing returns)
Susanne Sundfør - Music for People in Trouble (acoustic-to-orchestral angst favored by fans of her last, ABBA-esque album. Spoken word bits belong elsewhere)
Sevdaliza - Ison (close in conception to FKA Twigs, Arca-inspired downtempo with strong cabaret vocals by an Iranian expat)
Kaleida - Tear The Roots (Soft Cell backing Tracey Thorn is an idea I can get behind. The EPs were better)
Allie X - CollXtion II (craftmanlike synthpop, chugging away without much attention)
London Grammar - Truth Is a Beautiful Thing (Hannah Reid is probably more talented than your favorite current vocalist)
Nídia - Nídia é má, Nídia é fudida (ok, I mentioned this upthread, but Afro-house/electronica fans should be all over this)
Hammock - Mysterium (plugging away at the ambient side of shoegaze for over a decade, this is among their best)
Widowspeak - Expect the Best (more Mazzy twang indie. A personal weakness)
Ifriqiyya Électrique - Rûwâhîne (Gnawa inspired call/response with sympathetic production)
Anneli Drecker - Revelation for Personal Use (I'd love to see a S/D for post Bel Canto Drecker)
Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith - The Kid (cheating: out 6 October. Florid bucolic dreampop, as one might expect)
