|Seeing the Dear Hunter Tonight|
Haven't had much of a chance to spin the latest album yet--I've listened to it twice, which is just enough time to realize how much you've forgotten about Acts I-IV. But Casey always puts on a great show, and half the fun is his between-song banter, so I'm definitely excited for this one. List is a mixture of recent digs and albums I'm looking to check out soon.
|1||The Dear Hunter|
Act V: Hymns With The Devil In Confessional
Digging what I remember, definitely need to listen a few more times.
|2||From Indian Lakes|
Everything Feels Better Now
These guys (this guy?) have yet to disappoint. Excited about this one.
Actually just saw them play the day the album came out, and snagged a signed copy there. Like 1, have to give it a few more listens, but what I've heard so far definitely represents a major step up from Pale Communion. Then again, I legitimately forgot all about that album for a year, so that's not a particularly high hurdle to clear...
Voice of the Void
Just heard about this recently. Band fell off my radar for a while, but I remember Heart of Oak being my jam for a solid couple of months. Guess I need to dust that one off again, too.
22, A Million
This has been my go-to going-to-bed album since Saturday--which isn't to say it's boring, but that Justin Vernon's as good as setting trances as he is trends.
|6||Dance Gavin Dance|
I think I'm just a sucker for some sweet, sweet, syrupy post-hardcore (or, y'know, pop-funk or whatever), but all three singles for this have gotten steady rotation for the past month, and I'm definitely impressed by the turnaround time since the quite-good Instant Gratification and (seeming) consistency in quality.
Not exactly what I was expecting from the band, but definitely not a disappointment. Another one I've got to spend some more time with.
The Violent Sleep of Reason
Already preordered, just waiting for it to hit my doorstep. Gonna be an intense Friday night.
Half of this band did the music for Stranger Things, which is a pretty good indication of the synth-tastic sound on display here.
|10||John K. Samson|
Honestly never really got into the Weakerthans, but I've liked Samson's solo stuff. Plus, this has a pretty nifty title and artwork.
|damn this list has a lot of shit that i like |
|I see them the 14th!!!|
|Nice! Yeah, I've seen the band (and Casey solo) a few times now, and he/they always put on a great show.|
|This will be my first time so I am quite excited|
|Man I hate being 14. My parents won't let me go to one of their final act shows even though they aren't explicit. Nice though, bet it'll be sweet|
|i hope u bring ibuprofen|
|@Asdfp277 why? |
|I'm jelly. Going to see Bad Religion and Against Me! tonight, but still jelly.|
|Have you checked out the new In The Woods...? I am listening as I write this, so good and candidate for my 2016 AOTY.|
|nice, saw them quite a few years ago and they put on an excellent show|
|@teamster I wouldn't say aoty but a solid album!|
