I haven't liked a Lips album since Embryonic, but the singles I've heard from the new one are good and I am reading many good things about it, so I will check it out.  Wayne Coyne's voice is done (it was done the last time I saw them live 6-7 years ago), but they do enough studio magic with their trippy effects to hide it most of the time.

The Soft Bulletin through Embronic was a helluva run.

His voice is a little strained on this but it doesn’t bother me. All my favorite singers couldn’t sing.

Albums I've liked since the mid-year draft

Cafe Racer - Shadow Talk

Declan McKenna -Zeros

Empty Country - Empty Country

Creeper - Sex, Death & the Infinite Void

Thank you for the recommendations.  I've also enjoyed "Q36", the newest album by The Rentals based on your selection of "Forgotten Astronaut" (which I ❤️) in the mid-year draft.

Keep 'em coming!

That band I still can't listen to sober. It's really a shame. I think their first one is gonna be their best, least where I'm concerned.

True. Brutalism is my favorite. I also like their EP stuff. Their proper releases is what I'm talking about.

I love IDLES Chant. But I was wasted then...ah I but I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now.

It was about the same here, 12 celsius, so 54ish. But for just sitting pretty chilly when the sun went in. 

Sounds like a much more active day that I had 😂. I was actually going to watch Sheffield Wednesday (wife's family's team) but didn't realize they aren't on DAZN anymore.

Woah.  I love the first two albums, so that feels like a bold statement. I am seeing a lot of positive feedback; I am psyched to hear this.

I like it too. 

But my one listen overreaction was even greater for the eponymous debut and the Sun Giant ep.

I guess I will have to listen more, because my initial reaction was not nearly as overwhelming.

Seemed much more accessible and I don't remember them using a drum kit before (maybe somewhere on the Bim Sala Bim album?)  Not saying that was a bad thing, just saying I didn't hear the usual musical complexities, but I had it on in the background, so I certainly need to re-listen.

it's their best imo. kind of came out of nowhere too considering they were a 1-hit wonder 90s band and they came with something with the sonic and thematic depth of Softest Bulletin

this is some seriously bad revisionist history

The more accessible thing is almost always a good thing for me, I often end up on a bit of an island... case in point for Fleet Foxes, IMO>

Not really. They never broke through like other bands, but people in the proverbial know might have dug them for reasons other than the single. I personally knew of only the single, really, and it was a deterrent to examining them further. I'm not sure that the assertion that followed them not being big and that the album came out of the blue is true, though. They may have been crafting albums like that before anybody noticed and the world might have caught up with them instead of the other way around.

Could be. Iirc the album before it though was some psychedelic miasma that consisted of 3 or 4 discs that were supposed to be played at the same time. I think they recorded some of it at a drive in theater or parking lot when coyne gave a bunch of people cassette tapes to play simultaneously.

Eta sorry for the hijack

I knew going in it wasn't going to touch the last two...none of the new singles dropped are close. But it's good and pretty consistent, even if the heights aren't as high. And tbh, the singles have grown on me- the last two in particular- and ne touche pas moi jumped out at me from the rest as a solid banger...even if they had to add "consent" into the lyrics with a woke sledgehammer.

Man. I really want to like the new Sufjan album but it’s just not doing it for me.

I wouldn’t say they were bigger but they were certainly better than Jelly. 

The fact that that song was a breakthrough radio hit has always baffled me. IMO, there are multiple better songs on Transmissions alone, not to mention on Clouds, Priest and Hit to Death.

Soft Bulletin is their masterpiece, though.

Not sure if it's been mentioned but "Folklore" by Taylor Swift is probably the best album of the year imo. It's not pop music... Not even sure how to describe it. It's just good ### music
