A thread for the music of Long Islander Jade Lilitri, more commonly known by the "band" name oso oso.

The last oso oso album - The Yunahon Mixtape - is a modern day emo-revival classic, and its follow-up - Basking In The Glow - is out this Friday.

This might be my song of the year so far:

This one's good too:

Conclusion: This guy is a pop-rock genius who doesn't write bad songs!

I was wary with the emo tag but this is awesome. Reminds me of Pinback.

we enjoyed both advance singles

great band/songwriter, "reindeer games" is one of my favorite songs of the past few years

american bradass (BradNelson), Monday, 12 August 2019 20:30 (ten months ago) link

Agree on the Pinback comparison, really looking forward to this album!

Gavin, Leeds, Monday, 12 August 2019 20:31 (ten months ago) link

v excited about this album

my fav song of last year


devvvine, Monday, 12 August 2019 22:01 (ten months ago) link

Love the singles; really looking forward to this and also to seeing him with Prince Daddy and the Hyena in November! Going to be an amazing gig.

oooh hadn't seen that, will hopefully be there as well

devvvine, Tuesday, 13 August 2019 16:10 (ten months ago) link

unsurprisingly this album is very good

devvvine, Thursday, 15 August 2019 20:05 (ten months ago) link

heard nothing but amazing things about this, can't wait

american bradass (BradNelson), Thursday, 15 August 2019 20:06 (ten months ago) link

hadn't even heard the best song on the album when i posted

devvvine, Thursday, 15 August 2019 20:15 (ten months ago) link

i don't know how to pick a "best" this thing is all killer earworms, or at least 8/10 killer earworms

i'll be singing "MY EYES LIT UP WHEN I SAW IT" to my grave

near-perfect album

alpine static, Friday, 16 August 2019 07:30 (ten months ago) link

one of the best of the year for sure

devvvine, Friday, 16 August 2019 11:52 (ten months ago) link

v pleasantly surprised that this got bnm, which uh from personal experience never happens with an emo record. seems to have totally deserved it too

american bradass (BradNelson), Friday, 16 August 2019 13:52 (ten months ago) link

yeah, especially one towards the pop-punk end of the spectrum

devvvine, Friday, 16 August 2019 17:17 (ten months ago) link

BNM on pitchfork. First one for an emo album?

✖✖✖ (Moka), Friday, 16 August 2019 21:42 (ten months ago) link

I prefer the dig ii version

✖✖✖ (Moka), Friday, 16 August 2019 21:43 (ten months ago) link

the last brand new album was bnm

devvvine, Friday, 16 August 2019 21:49 (ten months ago) link

yeah, he should've just let dig end after 3:25 or whatever it is rather than tacking on that last 80 seconds of guitars

morning song is my hidden gem tucked into the middle of this album

alpine static, Saturday, 17 August 2019 07:58 (ten months ago) link

oooh hadn't seen that, will hopefully be there as well

Say hi if you end up going!

The new album is blissful. Was going to say my favourite run of songs, but realised I couldn’t leave out any track. However, a morning song is going to be on repeat throughout late summer.

"the view" is such a sick song

american bradass (BradNelson), Saturday, 17 August 2019 14:07 (ten months ago) link

every song on this record has this hazy waking up in sunlight feeling that i really love and i particularly feel it on "a morning song"

american bradass (BradNelson), Saturday, 17 August 2019 14:35 (ten months ago) link

This is really nice ! Not usually my thing but I like this

(•̪●) (carne asada), Saturday, 17 August 2019 14:47 (ten months ago) link

xxp for sure, and thanks for the glass beach rec!

devvvine, Saturday, 17 August 2019 15:16 (ten months ago) link

surprisingly this has been on repeat for me all week

(•̪●) (carne asada), Thursday, 22 August 2019 19:42 (ten months ago) link

same have had a hard time listening to anything else

devvvine, Thursday, 22 August 2019 20:25 (ten months ago) link

one month passes...

Hadn't listened to this for a month or so, but have been listening in between poll stuff the last couple of days and oh it is so joyful.

tangenttangent, Monday, 21 October 2019 22:21 (eight months ago) link

i had the same experience the other day!

alpine static, Tuesday, 22 October 2019 06:47 (eight months ago) link

shoulda realised the ldn show would sell out once the record got bnm'd :(

devvvine, Tuesday, 22 October 2019 09:48 (eight months ago) link

Oh no! I think there were a couple of people selling on Twitter/the Facebook page for the event. I’ll keep an eye out just in case.
