I could swear there was a rolling 2018 ambient/ethereal music thread but I can't find it. I've been obsessively listening to Mary Lattimore's newest this week at work. The whole album is great, but I could listen to the opening track for days:

i love the guitar tones on this

YES! I've been tracking her for a couple years. I'm psyched for the album.
― Johnny Fever, Monday, 24 September 2018 14:31 (one year ago) link
really like this
as far as shambhala albums go this year, I liked Mozaika by Onuka quite a lot, and I want to plug WEDNESDAY CAMPANELLA - Galapagos to anyone who hasn't heard it, they're the best pop group in the world right now

I already posted something upthread, but this is my fave track from Priest's "The Lost Lions" EP. I'm getting some Washed Out vibes

My Brain On Love by Young Dreams has in 2018 given me constant cravings to hear it and constant vague dissatisfaction when actually hearing it. I can't think of many other songs like that. I therefore can't say whether it's great or not, but you should probably give it a go and decide for yourself
― imago, Friday, 9 November 2018 18:35 (one year ago) link
Actually I'm quite enjoying it today. I think as long as it sticks to that chorus it's good, and it does stick to it a lot

the eliza shaddad album is lovely btw

That Young Dreams track that imago posted made my weekend.

I don't know if this belongs here, but it's good:
― daavid, Monday, 12 November 2018 21:41 (one year ago) link
xp yeah I listened to it about 8 times in a row and decided it's one of the songs of the year - how was I ever ambivalent?
― imago, Monday, 12 November 2018 21:46 (one year ago) link
the Young Dreams album is pretty enjoyable
I really like Sir Babygirl's run of singles this year, looking forward to her album next year

We found a worse artist name than Mr. Twin Sister.

New Teen album due in March. Their pastiche is so amped-up that it stands apart from other similar bands.
― tangenttangent, Monday, 3 December 2018 21:53 (one year ago) link
TEEN's debut single "better" is one of my favourite pieces of music from the past 5? 10? years
so it makes me sad to say: this song sucks
― sean gramophone, Tuesday, 4 December 2018 16:11 (one year ago) link
TEEN's entire Love Yes album was kind of incredible and yeah this is nowhere near that level
― imago, Tuesday, 4 December 2018 16:41 (one year ago) link
is there a 2019 thread yet? the Self Esteem record is sounding fucking great so far
― bhad bundy (Simon H.), Friday, 1 March 2019 04:04 (one year ago) link
the abovementioned Teen album is out today, I'm slightly nervous to check it
― imago, Friday, 1 March 2019 12:43 (one year ago) link
on third listen I like the Self Esteem record a whole lot, especially for how thoroughly unhip and unconcerned with sounding current it is (but also not self-consciously retro or whatever). it's smarter than it seems at first, too - "Girl Crush" for example is actually a repudiation of that term. it could probably stand to have lost a couple of tunes, but nothing drags individually.
― bhad bundy (Simon H.), Friday, 1 March 2019 18:49 (one year ago) link
I'll check it shortly! Teen was a massive disappointment tbh - they've ditched the non-sister and clearly lost any of her moderating influence, freeing them up to make a bad album
― imago, Saturday, 2 March 2019 12:35 (one year ago) link
obsessed with the self esteem album, especially its singles
― monotony, Wednesday, 6 March 2019 12:16 (one year ago) link
further listens have revealed it to be somewhat frontloaded
― bhad bundy (Simon H.), Wednesday, 6 March 2019 14:13 (one year ago) link
I don’t know if it’s shambhala but Gemma of “as ever” game has a good new one ^^^

I have come across this apparently ungooglable band from compiling music at the end of 2019, I know nothing at all about them, videos seem to have very few views indeed.
They are called "Ice Cream"
Does anyone know anything about them?
― mfktz (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Tuesday, 31 December 2019 22:01 (eight months ago) link
Appears they’re from Toronto; I found a tranche of info with a little googling: http://exclaim.ca/amparticle/ice_cream_return_with_new_single_peanut_butter

Their social accts are linked at the bottom of their Bandcamp page: https://icecreeeammm.bandcamp.com/

Thanks morrisp, brilliant work
― mfktz (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Tuesday, 31 December 2019 22:58 (eight months ago) link
yeah pretty big band in toronto indie rock
― sean gramophone, Wednesday, 1 January 2020 00:26 (eight months ago) link
Now I have a new favorite band.
― Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 1 January 2020 04:24 (eight months ago) link
"peanut butter" is very cool
― ufo, Wednesday, 1 January 2020 05:41 (eight months ago) link
yeah, this is good.
