Yup.  Courtesy of the ribbing taking Counting Crows in one of the music drafts + the ribbing of not having an avatar (at the time) = went with Duritz.

Darned if I can remember who did the CC ribbing...may have been @Limp Ditka

Ron Gallo has a new 8-song EP out today.  It seems like kind of a throwaway compared to last year's Heavy Meta album but it's a fun listen.

still rounding things into place, but pretty sure Heavy Meta made the cut into my top albums.

Counting Crows deserves more than ribbing imo.

It's a pretty good throwaway IMO. Might be a couple songs mixed amongst the silliness that I prefer to anything on Heavy Meta.

so the Shins took their album from last year and flipped/reworked it for a rerelease this year? 

 

S/hitKid had a full album out. I'm a fan, but I'm not sure I can take more than a song at a time from her tbh.

Really looking forward to Shannon and the Clams this February.  New single sounds lovely.

Strand of Oaks quietly released an album called Harder Love last week.  It's a companion to 2017's Hard Love consisting of early versions and demos of the songs from that album.

I'm probably the biggest honk of this band on the board so you can take it with the grain of salt it deserves.  There's enough variation between the two to make them both worthwhile listens.  Only the title track(s) have the same title but the new one is taken at a faster tempo.  The new record is generally more straightforward.  It doesn't have much of the studio noodling that marred their last record (for me).  It's interesting to see how Showalter's songs evolved and I'm hoping to hear new stuff from the artist that falls somewhere between Hard and Harder.

Shame is a good Sarf London band with a bad name.  Their debut LP Songs of Praise mines familiar post-punk territory but they do it with style.

One Rizla

 

Yeah, I am digging this one a bit.  

 

Also, my 2018 playlist is finally over 20 songs, so I will be sharing that at some point soon.
