Calc's Cue 1

First quarter is in the books already, life is being amazing to me right now hence no time for music.
Shy Guys, Malmo Days

post-Hardcore without the distortion, reminds me of early Adebisi Shank
2Between the Buried and Me
Automata I

heard one heard them all (4/5)
3Night Verses
Copper Wasp

tease me senpai tease me
4Donovan Wolfington

never liked these guys until this album, good new age punk rock
5Filthy Young Impalers
Pattern Blue

that good tech death that old heads would hate

still fuk with "Drift" when I wanna hear some nonsensical noises in my bangers
7GoGo Penguin
A Humdrum Star

the most inoffensive album of the year
8Super Whatevr
Never Nothing

love the production on this, really only two songs that stand out but the whole thing is pretty good
The Light Years

cheesy proggy metal, like if Frost* had a case of the junz

on one hand the weirdness is enough to enjoy, not annoy. on the other my zune died while this was on so I hate it.
11Senses Fail
If There Is Light, It Will Find You

sometimes you don't want to write in metaphors and say exactly what the hell you mean

blackened post metal, try it?
Time and Space

fun ass hardcore, the riffz are trueeeee
14Ling Tosite Sigure

i feel the hook here are the best they've done but.....idk just not that into it
Empty Black

AOTY right now, the comparisons to ETID go no further than the Bucklien inflection the vocalist uses. shit is technically savvy and fun as hell. i forgot what a good breakdown sounded like.

this kinda fills the You, Me, and Everyone We Know-shaped hole inside my heart
Made An America

strange piece this is. it's not bad but I'm looking at this as Improta's side project and Bulter's soapbox on how his people get killed by cops and are held down by the man (wait what?)
18Dedekind Cut

love this guy, this is the ambient I like
19Submotion Orchestra

released to no hype or fanfare, Kites sees the group return to the sound that made Finest Hour so alluring, unfortunately it's a sound that the masses have moved on from. but not me I love this shit
20Good Tiger
We Will All be Gone

the total erasure of the remnants of the safety fire occurred here, and in it's place some decent groove metal
21Whale Bones
Island Fire

nice little alt rock album, vocalist is distinct and the music holds attention if only for a bit
Solem Vatem

krosis are so 2011 with this relic but i like it, if the new BOO got you down, this might help out. verm where are you?
Sic Erat Scriptum

weird little jazzy blackness here, kinda lo-fi quality but good music
24Pianos Become the Teeth
Wait For Love

hated the previous iteration of this band (and la dispute, old grey, etc) and even though pool balls are sharper than Wait for Love, its simplistic stylings are nostalgic to me
A Strange Journey Into The Unimaginable

reminds me of Milo mixed with De La Soul, wish I found this cat earlier
music for Arseny Blinov's abstract art

gleb koyaldin (iamthemorning) released his debut solo album this year but i just like this project of his so much better
