Title: The Music of 2017
Post by: Solid Blake on March 17, 2017, 07:34:19 PM
It's only been 3 months, and yet there's quite a fine selection of aural pleasures to listen to in 2017.

Let us start with what inspired me to post this thread: Spoon's latest, Hot Thoughts:

Let us also not forget the fun and energetic Plural, by Electric Guest.

And though they were late December releases, both Awaken, My Love by Childish Gambino and Run the Jewels III by RTJ are both FANTASTIC albums to listen to in 2017.

New Ye (feature), new Joey, new Kendrick, new YG in less than an hour. Damn...

Need Tidal to hear this Mary J/Ye song though, so idk if that one's good or not, but I assume it is.

EDIT: And Thugger on this Calvin Harris song. Damn. The floodgates broke.

There's a rumor going around that he'd release another album on Sunday. That'd be really interesting. So far, I'm most surprised at how great the U2 collaboration is.

Producing some of the most reliably great pop music today. TNP keep topping their previous effort with each new release..
Or maybe I just love anything with Neko Case's voice on it.

As much as I adored DAMN. and MASSEDUCATION (hell of a year for all caps album titles), Mount Eerie's 'A Crow Looked At Me' is like being ripped apart in audio form. Read the backstory for it, but it's a must listen.

Really wish I made it out to that Japandroids show. Was the Weezer one part of a bigger thing or was it just a strangely short set? I've not seen them, so I don't know how their shows are, but that setlist seems lean, even with great songs on there. U2 I'd have liked to have seen as well, and would have loved to get to LCD (especially in NY, hearing "NYILYBYBMD"). Saw The National at Made in America a few years ago, and didn't care for them, but I don't like them in general, I do consistently hear good things about their live shows, probs just not for me.

The Weezer show was a charity thing for Radio 104.5's Movember campaign. Was all acoustic and a nice tight little set + that Pixies cover which was awesome. I'm a huge National fan and Verizon Hall isn't exactly a venue that see's many rock shows, especially ones where the lead singer bounds out thru the crowd and I was 2nd row so it was a great experience. So many coked up Brooklyn hipsters at LCD!

Actually saw LCD (on the second night at The Fillmore) and Japandroids twice (in Santa Ana about 3 weeks after the Philly show). But decided to only list 1 per band.
