    Unfortunately I have not been all over it like I used to be and don't have favorites that I can pinpoint. I need to get a new system together. Everything was simple when I just used iTunes and what.cd and would create a running playlist every year. problem is I listen on too many sources now, Spotify, Tidal, Plex, Sirius, etc. and don't have one unified playlist so I lazily take whatever they curate for me.

    My system is a Spotify playlist where I throw all the new releases I’m interested in. Then keep listening to that list on shuffle and finding standout tracks, overall good albums, and albums I can get rid of

    That is similar to what I used to do, except I used what.cd as a way to vet new albums. I would download any indie/alternative album with more than 15 snatches and then sample a few songs to see if it was something I wanted to continue to listen to. If it was, I would add it to my playlist and remove it only if I decided it sucked.

    I wish Spotify had something similar. It'll show you what your friends listen to, but I have no idea what's going on nationwide like that

    i wish the indie playlists were better curated too. my spotify is mostly hip hop that i listen to at the gym, so my daily mixes and release radar content is heavily skewed

    Have a Spotify family account. Wife refuses to break away so I'll get some really random shit on there as a result. My year end summary can be comical as a result.

    New Modest Mouse has some spicy song titles. "Fuck Your Acid Trip" opens the album and later we get into "Never Fuck A Spider On The Fly"

    I love that in every Lucy, Phoebe, and Julien solo album, it seems like we're going to get a touch of boygenius harmonies somewhere.

    The cover I didn't know I needed. Her story that goes along with this is pretty good too. She got into a huge argument with her Pastor over his suggestion to delete secular songs, and this was one of them.

    The new Half Waif is probably the biggest release today. Haven't listened yet but but I've loved the singles.

    Another good one is Gnawing's "You Freak Me Out." Good fuzzy alt rock with with a little twang mixed in at times.

    second listen through this album and I love it, only real negative is it's compressed to hell. you could make an argument that it fits in an intentional lo-fi kind of way, but I've never been a fan of lo-fi for artistic sake

    still, this thing bounces around from electronic post-punk, to post-hardcore in the same vein as the heavier side of At the Drive In (more along the second half of the album), and like I said in the first post, has some pretty damn catchy moments

    there's even a track with an intro that sounds like TV on the Radio covering Kanye's "Runaway" I mean come on

    (not this one, different track)

    the Weimar Beer Belly everything is good here/please come home

    Not sure where else to put this but a French drummer named Ludo Morillon just pre-released a pretty great new wave/post punk concept album based around Boris Williams, the drummer for The Cure (85-94). He replayed the iconic beats from some of their songs and sent the tracks out to some of his favorite Industrial, Noise, Pop, Hip Hop, Experimental, Post-Punk yadda yadda artists and let them reinterpret the songs. It’s pretty good shit and I feel like it should be recognized:

    "Creep" is my least favorite Radiohead song because of overexposure and relative simplicity, but I can't say this improved it much
