I'm very into that new Frightened Rabbit. The M83 seems more like a few songs will end up sticking out rather than being a fully great album.

Listening to the new Pet Shop Boys now.

What do you think? I'm not that wild about it. It's better than Electric, but not by much.

Yeah, its least interesting piece in 10 years or so but there's a decent amount to enjoy. Where the hell do you go after HU,WD though?

Lemonade by Beyonce is amazing. It's her best album by far, and not only is it a great statement album, but also the music itself is outstanding. I only wish it were easier to share. I've wanted to post "Hold Up" here but there's no good youtube link. I don't need the full video, but if she would just let me spread the word I'd be happy to shout it from the rooftops.

agreed, but wow, the production has an unsettleing amount of late 90s trance. And it doesn't have a high quite like Thursday. Pop Kids sound so damn classic though.

Is tomorrow going to be literally the best day in music of 2016? (It won't since it probably involves no Kanye, but I'm sure it will be close.)

New James Blake. New Death Grips. New Skepta. And maybe some Chance? DAMN!

I've listened to James Blake's 'The Colour In Anything' a few times now and I think it's an amazing album.
It's not something normally in my wheelhouse, but I think it's an album that needs listening to.
