Yeah, first listen I liked it a lot, second listen I thought it was too "rock" but then third listen it was better again. Hooks and riffs are all super fun.

not really on topic but sort of on topic, but rip mary oliver, it seems beside the point to associate a song inspired by her work with her but i do

can confirm the pedro album sounds good. def gains steam (as much steam as a pedro album can gain) as it goes. i really liked circle k and quietest friend on first pass, and the final track for sure. i do wish his vox were recessed just a tad more in the mix. i have the same complaint with most of his solo stuff as well. im definitely going to spend more time with it when its released tomorrow.

I'm enjoying the new Forests album. It's a little midwest, mathy sound and most of the songs end stronger than they begin.

Beyond excited for the new PUP album - The Dream is Over is one of my absolute favourite pop punk releases of the decade.

this Forests record is cool, thx tt!!

They do! The TMP single is lovely as well. And Radar State is sounding wonderful!

well now that i’m really excited for the new copeland record, eat, sleep, repeat and you are my sunshine have finally clicked with me, especially the latter

copeland ranked:

it does not seem like such a daunting discography but each record is such a stylistic leap that you tend to dwell on 1-2 at a time

current rankings for me:

— in moton (perfect alb)
— beneath medicine tree (feels a little more of its time than the others but it's all wrapped in a sweet concept which still resonates with me)
— eat sleep repeat (beginning to stretch out a little on this one, I saw them in san antonio during this tour) title track is a top 5 copeland track for me)
— you are my sunshine (was losing touch with this type of music a bit around this time, not as deeply engrained in me but it it is great)
— ixora (admittedly need to spend more time with this, and ixora twin)

not a bad or even ok album in the discography. they havent missed yet.

marcos smart (Spottie), Wednesday, 30 January 2019 19:35 (one month ago) Permalink

in motion is def perfect

jolene club remix (BradNelson), Wednesday, 30 January 2019 19:35 (one month ago) Permalink

it's really tied with sunshine in that ranking

jolene club remix (BradNelson), Wednesday, 30 January 2019 19:36 (one month ago) Permalink

not sure what it is about ixora but it's a perfect union of consistent mood and aaron marsh's songwriting expanding to previously unmet horizons. "erase" is some kind of perfect song

if i had to guess blushing seems like it's gonna be the indoor record to ixora's outdoors

lol that PUP video has so much going on, it's crazy. I admire a band that can totally eclipse their own song by overloading you with visual content!

New Martha is sounding very charming.

a friend of a friend of mine directed it so I heard the basic synopsis in advance but it was much more elaborate than I imagined

resident hack (Simon H.), Wednesday, 30 January 2019 21:11 (one month ago) Permalink

I think it’s a great video, just yeah, so elaborate! Will need a few rewatches to absorb the details.

Oh, not exactly the right thread, but I saw Swearin’ last night and they have such a lovely energy together and the whole gig felt very warm. They didn’t play Oil and Water though, which was regretful.

when i saw them live last year they seemed about to make a dramatic stylistic shift that i don't know if i wanna follow them down. gonna check out the song anyway

Did you guys know about MIKE KROL?

tangenttangent, Monday, 4 February 2019 11:24 (one month ago) Permalink

I just found out because of this new album: https://mikekrol.bandcamp.com/album/power-chords

Listening to his first and second albums will cost you a combined 35 minutes and I highly recommend it. The most fun power pop in the world, and that's saying something.

tangenttangent, Monday, 4 February 2019 11:44 (one month ago) Permalink

I honestly don't know if post-hardcore belongs here or in Rolling Metal but I saw Humanities, Ultra Love, and Dark Plains on the weekend and it was a really good show. Humanities recall Fugazi but are heavier, with some good noisy moments; probably some Shotmaker in there. Dark Plains is actually comprised of former members of Shotmaker, Okara, and Metz, and get into some almost pigfuck-like territory; sometimes even some blues-rock-informed riffs and cool lead guitar bits that I sometimes wish went on longer. I was most surprised by Ultra Love, whose Arpin produced a really satisfying wash of noise and dissonance, with tuneful bits, on a Les Paul in something of a post-metal/gaze dirge context.
