yeeeeaaah, that Expander album is wild.

Perturbator doesn't sound anything like that but it's just out today and I think it's neat:

 

Not heard this before. It is good. I am always interested to hear more grimy, dirty electronic music, but never know where to look for it. This is proper grimy.

I'm totally rocking the new-ish (came out in January I think) Sepultura LP. I don't know why, because it's cheeseball nu-metal as fuck, with the occasional death/thrash ripper. It makes me want to wear Adidas trackies and get dreads. It's a solid record though, with loads of bonkers percussion. 6 Kerrangs out of 10

I'm just dipping my toes in the water with that kind of thing but I like Gost too so listen to that if you haven't already.

There's a new Puppy song. Puppy rule.

New Converge = good.


New Quicksand = much less good when you're expecting a Quicksand record. If they slapped the name Rivals Schools on the front of this instead, it'd probably fit a lot more, but it still doesn't excite me on first listen. It sounds nice, I guess, but it absolutely does not rock.

Why can't they just sound like this song, forever?

That voice is untouchable. Well, was untouchable.

I had no idea these had been released (or were even due to be released) this year until this morning when I saw them on a Best of 2017 list on fucking Instagram of all places. My finger is far away from the pulse when new music is released.

These are both great and both better than their previous albums which I liked both of, but they were also a little tame compared to earlier stuff.

More 2017 bangers

Friendship. Skullcrushing powerviolence from Japan. Totally brutal.
https://friendshipsl.bandcamp.com/releases

Less Art. Guys from Thrice, Curl Up & Die and Kowloon Walled City. Sounds like late 90's post-hardcore. Bleak stuff, yet totally rocking. 
https://friendshipsl.bandcamp.com/releases

ONSIND. Acoustic ONSIND never did it for me that much. Full band ONSIND is pure joy. Really good record. Best thing they've done.
https://onsind.bandcamp.com/album/we-wilt-we-bloom

Jesus and his Judgemental Father. Power pop from Leeds. Super fun sounding songs about very much unfun things.

Shifty Swifty's new album is one of those i can't stop listening to but I'm not sure why. A lot of it is shite, but there are those moments that are pure bliss and just amazing pop.

new Glassjaw is surprisingly good. Surprising because I don't really like them. Their earlier stuff was the epitome of where "post hardcore" was in the early 00s. All that black haired emo bilge like Taking Back Sunday, Finch and Thursday. Yuck. New album sounds pretty cool though. Bit more mature, kind of has a Deftones thing going on.

1. I'm not having that. Glassjaw were always better than those bands.

2. You're right about the new album. It's very good, I love the bass on it in particular.

They possibly were better. I just wasn't interested in that stuff, of which there was loads of at the time. I even had a quick revisit to early Glassjaw stuff after hearing this new one, and I still don't like it, and still reminds me of all those bands. The new one is better. It sounds less like that particular scene, whilst still sounding like Glassjaw. You're right too, the bass sounds mighty. It all sounds mighty. Great record, gets better with each listen. It might even creep in to my Top 10 of the year, which would be an unprecedented first for a band I thought I didn't like.
 

You heard the new SECT record? It's a total rager. I slept on the last album, for some reason. Didn't even realise it's the drummer from Fall Out Boy until I heard the new album. Ballou recorded it too (which is what sparked my interest, as he tends to only do things that I like) so you already know what it sounds like. It sounds like ALL THE DRUMS.

Good Pop Punk is good. Here is two good 2017 Pop Punk records.

Capitalist Kids - Brand Damage
https://capitalistkids.bandcamp.com/album/brand-damage

Their last album, At A Loss, is one of my favourite pop punk releases in a long time. Serious melodies. On first listen, this is just as good.


Iron Chic - You Can't Stay Here
https://ironchic.bandcamp.com/album/you-cant-stay-here

Gruff and fuzzy. Love everything they've done, this included. Pumped to see the next year.

I've been so shit with new music this year. I'm gonna go through all of your lists and actually listen to something that isn't Lizzo or Superchunk.

I did enjoy records by Sheer Mag, A Giant Dog and Allison Crutchfield. That's all I remember...

Was wondering when the top 10s were going to start. I like that Soda Jerk just broke all sanity with a "top 18", while worrying whether he would break decorum if he stretched it to a top 19; I think I may just say what the hell and post a top 12 (e.g.) and to hell with narrowing it down to 10.
