the genre I most regret not keeping up with last year

this EP is pretty great, particularly "Olive"

If non-brand new releases are fair game, this was one of my most listened to albums of last year (and I actually found it late).

Gurr's 'In My Head'

Key track: "Moby Dick"

my pick of all the bands playing the various Picks of 2018 nights around London this week: Whenyoung.
And in particular their song Actor https://soundcloud.com/hate-hate-hate-records/whenyoung-actor
bit Alvvays-y but rougher around the edges

Late 2017 that I meant to post to the last thread:

Laconic trans* anthem from disco-yearning/Scando-inflected Aucklanders. I find the v.flat NZ accent charming but might be a dealbreaker for others. Hopefully an album in 2018.

(the v.young local ppl's indiepop seems to be either Drake or vaporwave inflected, FWIW)

No idea tbh. I did catch it on some kind of new artists YouTube playlist

Young Marble Giants is more lush than this song.

As in synonym for good and soft.
