this week's release radar tunes of interest...

Car Seat Headrest's new album keeps popping onto my spotify and I keep playlisting the tunes. haven't heard one that I haven't like yet.

spotify keeps putting Lionlimb on my lists... I think I've finally succumbed and playlisted a tune.

Weezer's acoustic happy hour- was surprisingly good.

DAF... I'm probably the only fan from their "der mussolini" days- but it's going back in time and scratching that minimal/industrial/keyboard itch.

our friend's kid plays bass in Pinky Pinky.. they have a new ep out, and I can't tell if it's legitimately good or just good to me because it's our friend's kid.

the singles I've heard from The Men have been a bit bizarro- almost acoustic early Feelies vibe to them. pretty good, but feels like a different vibe. haven't jumped into the whole album yet.

I don’t usually give Screaming Females much of a leash but their new one sounds pfg. 

I love this. I wonder if I need to go back to their older stuff.

I gave the Soccer Mommy album a couple tries today because it sounded like something I'd like but it was just too damn slow for me.

Public Access TV has a new record out.  Their debut a couple of years back had its admirers on this board.

The new one is better than the first IMO.

I did the same thing... I liked the dog song though.

Born Ruffians - Uncle, Duke & the Chief might be my early leader. Really nice return to form after their last ruff album.

Mixes garage-y stompers with some Spoon-ish more minimal rock and some Brian Wilson style ballads. With some songs that split the difference between those styles. Only 9 songs so it's good for my Spotified attention span as well and they vary enough to not wear out at all.

The title's inspired by the frontman's father being diagnosed with cancer and Bowie's death and a lot of the songs are lyrically melancholy but they do the singalong to deceptively depressing words thing very well IMO.

Anyway, in some ways it's their dreaded "more mature" album but the fact that I just typed all these words shows I really like it.

I listened to their one before this when it came out and it didn't grab me like this one has. Step Outside is really really good.

I don't think I've mentioned them here yet because they don't have an album out yet (it's out May 4) but I absolutely love Middle Kids. Trio from Australia, female lead singer, her husband is the guitarist. I can see them pretty easily crossing over and getting a huge mainstream following as well.

What percent of music you listen to is by women? This calculates through your spotify account.

I was 21% women :bag:

I just noticed they'll be at the Firefly festival this summer so I'll get to see them.  There are some pretty good down ticket acts this year (Ron Gallo, Royal Blood, Alex Lahey)  so should be fun.

Ron Gallo and Alex Lahey are two I'm definitely going to see at Bonnaroo.

Steve Reich has a new drumming music album. It's great if you like him. Or have 10 year old who is learning drums

It's hard not to have Guided By Voices fatigue with their never ending stream of albums but their new song today, "That's Good" is actually, very good. I guess an unfinished version of it previously appeared on Suitcase 3  so it's been around for a while.

Milano was a joint album with some Italianish dude and some cameos (Karen o). Up and down, but decent.

I liked Human Performance, but not as much as their previous stuff which I was cookoo about.

High level - don't give up your personal information so readily.  Not a great idea...

Omg!  Have you even had the proper immunizations required to enter Brooklyn?

 

And $12 per ticket?  Who do they think I am? A Rockefeller?

Also, along with the shots, I'll need a place for currency exchange.

PRhyme is a rap superduo with Royce da 5'9" and DJ Premier.  That's probably all you need to know other than they have a new album called PRhyme 2.

That is an early candidate for my non-Jeff Rosenstock song of the year!

Something called U.S. Girls (a solo act I think) with a new album I thought sounded pretty good, fresh/hip with a lot of influences, that kind of thing

Wonder if they're still doing electronica or done another three-chord themed thing.

eta* Just a single, and sort of a plodder at that.

Prhyme2 is pretty good. Love the song "Flirt" as it uses the call and response of Camp Lo's "Luchini (AKA This Is It)" which I think I took in Genrepalooza.
