|I’ll probably add some more later but here are some slept-on gems I’m just hearing for the first time in 2021. Feel free to rec something similar or share albums you ignored for far too long |
|Have physical graffiti on the turntable right now getting its first proper spin. Good shit|
|Snuff were one of the first live gigs I went to back in 1997! They are still going strong, but that album is probs their best.|
For some older stuff, I'll just rec you 3. Let me know if you need more.
Bad Religion - Suffer (can't believe you haven't rated any BR) time for a discog run.
Operation Ivy- Energy. Or if you are using Spotify, check the compilation Operation Ivy. Then once you finish, do a Rancid discog run.
Assorted Jellybeans - What's Really Going On. It's punky Ska from 98, that is the sound of summer.
|hell yeah check your head rules|
|check out Hum - You'd Prefer an Astronaut |
|Will do, thx for the rec!|
@sloth, cheers as always bud
@chemical, nice! It has been forever since I heard that album might have to revisit soon
|I just got into 1 this year as well! Never bothered with them because I was too lazy to check genre tags and just assumed it was some shitty emo metalcore band. Boy, that assumption couldn't be more off!|
Another one I haven't been able to put down is The Beach Boys - The Smile Sessions. Unreleased magnum opus of 1960s pop. Forget everything you think you know about the Beach Boys - this is like Sgt Peppers but even better. It's one of those albums that transcends genre preferences. I already know you'll love it.
|how do you go this long as a music writer/person who knows music and think that about 1|
|Demon of the Fall|
|I really need to revisit Husker Du.|
Souvlaki is excellent, Pygmalion is better.
|"how do you go this long as a music writer/person who knows music and think that about 1"|
It's inexcusable, really. The equivalent of judging a book by its cover.
|I definitely prefer pygmalion but i'm also not as big of a fan of souvlaki as most|
cool list, always fun to check some older stuff
|Look like I’ll be listening to Pygmalion this week!|
@Sowing, that’s funny that we both heard Loveless for the first time this year. Too much time always chasing new releases I guess, haha. I actually slept on The Beach Boys for too long but Pet Sounds is so damn fantastic. Was pretty obsessed with it for a while. Can’t remember the Smile Sessions that well but must have heard it during by Beach Boys binge a few years back. Will have to revisit soon :]
|Souvlaki is excellent, Pygmalion is better. |
but wow a whole decade on sput an u never heard loveless. I always assumed that album is central sput canon
