That Young Dreams track that imago posted made my weekend.

I don't know if this belongs here, but it's good:

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?

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.

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

TEEN's entire Love Yes album was kind of incredible and yeah this is nowhere near that level

two months pass...

is there a 2019 thread yet? the Self Esteem record is sounding fucking great so far

the abovementioned Teen album is out today, I'm slightly nervous to check it

imago, Friday, 1 March 2019 12:43 (five months 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.

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 (five months ago) link

obsessed with the self esteem album, especially its singles

monotony, Wednesday, 6 March 2019 12:16 (five months ago) link

further listens have revealed it to be somewhat frontloaded

bhad bundy (Simon H.), Wednesday, 6 March 2019 14:13 (five months ago) link

one month passes...
