Lorde – Melodrama
I heard that Lorde made a record executive eat a live rat before she would sign her contract. Cool.
Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit – The Nashville Sound
A rare entry in the “sad songs for adult men” genre; just kidding, that’s 99% of modern music.
Fleet Foxes – Crack-Up
The sound of 10 Grateful Dead albums being played at once.
Big Boi – BOOMIVERSE
Big Boi’s best work may be behind him, but he’s still rapping about Waffle House so what are you complaining about?
Portugal. The Man – Woodstock
So this is who’s been making music for Forever 21.
Beth Ditto – Fake Sugar
This just goes to show that no matter how punk you are eventually your music is going to sound like something from a yogurt commercial.
Palehound – A Place I’ll Always Go
The worst thing that ever happened to music was millennial white guys discovering Pavement.
Future - Future
Future has way too much time on his hands. Does he really think that his audience can relate to an entire song about buying watches? Because we can’t.
The Japanese House - Saw You In A Dream
You’d think I would regret making that wish about all music sounding like early 80s Fleetwood Mac, but I don’t.
Vince Staples - Big Fish Theory
Vince Staples is right, what 2017 needs is more hip hop for people who don’t like hip hop.
Vérité - Somewhere In Between
Somber, empowering pop for gals who don’t feel like listening to literally every other record released in the last five years.
Poolside - Heat
An answer to the question, “what would it sound like if The Beegees were early 90s hackers?”
LANY - LANY
Oh no, someone found all of your high school poetry and turned it into a chill wave album.
