    oh my god, I'm back on my bullshit Prestigious

    Turns out that the only release that I was really looking forward today (Cold Years -Death Chasers) isn't actually out until tomorrow, so I'm disappointed.

    Also, it's been on bandcamp for a few weeks so I don't really count it, but Fury - Paramount is officially out today and it's really good.

    Blind Pilot's first new record in 5 years is out today and it's incredible. I'll also be checking out the new of Montreal.

    I expect to be listening to the Stranger Things soundtrack a little too much.

    And I'm REALLY holding out some hope that Bon Iver surprise releases their new record after the show tonight.

    Checking out the Stranger Things soundtrack and Brendan Canning's new record. Neither of these were on my Apple Music 'New' page, but Olafur Arnalds has a new album or EP that was, so I'm gonna grab that too.

    I'm looking forward to checking out mostly singles today from Keaton Henson, Regina Spektor, Anthony Green, Norma Jean. Might give the Young the Giant album a listen.

    I'm also really excited to give the three-track "Songs from Final Fantasy XV" that Florence + the Machine just put out.

    Stellar Young released their live album, "Woodstock Sessions: Volume 5" today as well.

    Live recordings of their songs, plus I believe two new songs (Levee and Rations) and even an old song when they were The City Never Sleeps.

    Modern, alternative rock. All their music name your own price on their bandcamp. Totally recommend to all.

    The rivalry is back on

    I think Young the Giant and Blind Pilot are the two for me this week

    Oh my The Amity Afflcition album is bad.

    Release My Mind, My Garden Grows

    Haven't listened to the LP yet but heard the first single and my expectations were lowered sooooo far after that. Super cringy lyrics and basic as fuck instumentals. If its what I expect, its probably wicked soft compared to any of their stuff pre-let the ocean take me. Their music used to be so fun to me. Sucks they took this route.

    oh my god, I'm back on my bullshit Prestigious

    They've been on a steady decline album after album for me. I loved Youngbloods, but since then they've basically made the same album again and again, but a bit less interesting each time. This album is so boring.

    I've been looking forward to Young the Giant for a long time. All the singles have been great. Can't wait to see how the full album turns out!

    Pretty slow week for me. Will definitely listen to Young The Giant. Moose Blood and Capsize are still on heavy repeat.

    Edit: Also looks like Microwave dropped another single called Busy.

    Release My Mind, My Garden Grows

    The last records I liked by them was Chasing Ghosts. Last one that actually sounded like the Amity Affliction I grew so fond of. Now I feel like they're trying to cater to the whole "This band saved my life, 14 yr old kids who went to Warped Tour with their mom" crowd
