    Joyce are terrific! Stoked on that album.

    George Watsky's new album x infinity came out yesterday. The whole record is stellar, but the Lovely Thing suite is particularly masterful.

    Just found out about a punk band called Joyce Manor. The first tracks I've listened to I quite like. They have a new album coming out in October and if the first track I've heard from the album is anything to go on, I think I'll grab the whole thing.

    Atmosphere's new record, Fishing Blues, came out today! Sounds like they're finally having fun again.

    New records:
    New Descendents - Hypercaffium Spazzinate: the OGs of pop punk still putting out solid records
    Dinosaur Jr new record - Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not: great album with hazy riffs

    Vintage album:
    Ike & Tina Turner and The Ikettes - Come Together: this is a hidden gem.


    Enjoy the weekend

    Just starting to get in to Jeff The Brotherhood. A two person garage rock band.

    This is far from new, but with the recent events in the news I've been drawn back to some old-ish school hip hop with some social commentary, especially The Coup. Criminally underrated, Boots Riley is one of the most consistently thought-provoking mcs around, and it doesn't hurt that he's got a great voice and the tracks are funky as hell.

    Lots of new albums lately.
    Red Hot Chili Peppers, "The Getaway" - way different sound from the old funky style. More of a jazz fusion style. Love the rhythm section more then Kiedis' voice
    Blink 182, "California" - Love the addition of Matt Skiba (Alkaline Trio) on vocals. Lyrics are cheesy, but I dig the nostalgic vibe of the punk/pop
    Snoop Dogg, "Coolaid" - C'mon son. He's lost a step, but it's the D-O-Double G. Plus, Too Short is on the album
    Biffy Clyro, "Elipsis" - Great Scottish rock band with another awesome record. Think Radiohead, Switchfoot, and Blue October had a baby

    And get ready, the Descendents are coming soon....

    Enjoy your weekend, fellas

    I still play Entro a few times a month; have since it came out. One of my favorite records of all time. Shadow has never been able to recreate that magic, but he's made a lot of great music. When you release a debut like Entro, there's nowhere to go but down.

    As for RTJ, by far my favorite current hip hop artists. El-P and Mikey are absolute beasts

    I'm listening to a group I just found called Twin Peaks - "Butterfly." Very 60s garage-y
    i am digging Twin Peaks too! That first song off their latest one sounds like T.Rex. That's a good thing.

    Thanks [MENTION=12652]ForeverGuest[/MENTION]. I'll check the album out on iTunes (assuming it is there) and give each song a listen to. If I like the album enough, I'll give it a purchase. The first track I heard off the album (Vincent ?) I thought was pretty good.

    Just listened to this for the first time this afternoon. Really enjoyed it.

    The new record is definitely guitar driven. To me, CSH is quintessential indie rock—big guitars, moody, stream of consciousness lyrics. There's a lot of apathy in the songs, a lot of self denial. They're not lyrically fun songs, per se, but the instrumentation rocks enough to make you bounce. CSH reminds me of Yankee Hotel Foxtrot-era Wilco or even early REM, though less psychedelic than the former and less melodic than the latter. I think this record could break them into the rock mainstream, such as it is these days. I'm a fan. I recommend listening on Spotify for sure, and I'll probably go out and buy the vinyl at some point soon.
