Jas' OBTUSELY modest 2017 basetouch

Damn, what a weird fucking year man. I usually do one of these every quarter of the year, but this year since i'm in my first year of Uni (BA, Psyc major) I've been real slow on my roll of new releases. So, here's some bizarre, uncoordinated list of stuff i've heard, my AOTY contenders, stuff I liked, stuff I didn't like and stuff I'm hanging out for still. This isn't everything I've heard and there's no logic or reason on the ordering, this is just a "hey, how y'all doing? Haven't seen you in a while, how are the kids?"

These guys got my AOTY in like, fuck, 2014? Feels like ages ago. 2014 was also the only year so far that I've been a member here and given a new release a 5. I think Benji got a 5 too.

They are not getting my AOTY this year though, but this is still coolio
2Tyler, the Creator
Flower Boy

lol Jesus, this year's been strange man. Like this being good.
3Kendrick Lamar

yeah, Damn, I guess
4Toby Driver

DAMN. [2]
5Steven Wilson
To the Bone

Hardest fucking DAMN. of the year. Dude needs to just let go and write a full-on pop album, cause he's good at it. He sounds so insecure in interviews too when he's talking about pop. Get fucked Steve, I believed in you.
The Optimist

DAMN. [4] this could have been better
7Brand New
Science Fiction

lol fucking DAMN. [5]

This is cool fucking bananas. Approximately a Danny Brown, De La Soul and We Got the Power off of an AOTY contender. I get what Damon was trying to do with this but the sonic decisions worked better in concept. To demonstrate this, the album fucking destroys live, the live instruments just carry more energy and fill in the gap that feels like it's missing out of the middle of the recordings. Not in like a "hurr durr rael instumentzzz" way.
9Manchester Orchestra
A Black Mile to the Surface
