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

    The Menzingers and Dave Hause make this the best release day of the year so far by far.
  3. GetUpAndrew

    Constant horror and bone-deep dissatisfaction.

    Lower Than Atlantis, The Menzingers and Galactic Empire, for me. Also, a new Stolas single is out today (great band signed with Blue Swan Records).

    The rivalry is back on

    MUNA (RIYL Haim, Chvrches), Menzingers, and Sampha are the big 3 for me.

    I'll probably also check out Fenech-Soler, Elbow, and Syd.

    Also, earlier this week, Code Machine (one of the touring members of Mae's band) came out with their debut album and that's very good as well.

    Picking up LTJ, obv. I'd feel like it was an obligation to listen to everything they release if I didn't like all of it so much, even after so many years of listening to them and having my tastes grow and change.

    Also going to get The Menzingers' new one because "Lookers" has literally (in the actual meaning) been stuck in my head since it was released. It was the first track from them I heard (I've since gone back and listened to On the Impossible Past a few times) so I hope I enjoy the rest of the album as much as I like that track.

    menzingers and sampha and i guess big sean maybe?

    menzingers wasn't great on first listen sadly
  11. Steve_JustAGuy


    Menzingers today for sure.

    already listened to the shit out of the menzingers album. I will need to check out Dave Hause (never heard of before) and Less than Jake
  13. Funny how the top 3 stories on the home page right now are:

    1. The podcast all about After the Party
    2. The review for After the Party
    3. Album release dates, which most importantly means, After the Party

    I guess I should go check out After the Party

  14. Sampha has me intrigued. I had nooooo clue we were getting new Big Sean today either. Not that I'm much of a fan, but I'm at least interested to see what his current output's like

    Listening to the new Alex Dezen right now. I feel like this guy just forgot how to write songs. @cshadows2887, not much of a step up from his last solo album, unfortunately.

    Menzingers and Dave Hause for me.

    Both sound good but probably need a few more plays to stick.

    Will also spin LTJ. First band I ever saw live 15 years ago. Going to see them again for the 7th time at slam dunk.

    A (Cancelled) Dork Prestigious

    Menzingers, WATERMEDOWN, and Less Than Jake were no-brainers for me today. Heard WATERMEDOWN on YouTube the other day and loved it. Listened to LTJ on the way to work today and really enjoyed that too. Want to save Menzingers until later when I can sit still and take it all in while giving it my full attention.

    Going to check out Lower Than Atlantis, Dave Hause, and Samphas because of the recs on here.

    Probably will give Big Sean a listen too, even though I think he sounds so much like Drake now as to be near-indistinguishable.

    Any good hip-hop albums drop today worth giving a listen?

    Aw man. That's depressing as hell. And also SUPER weird since the s/t Damnwells record is amazing.
  23. Craig Manning

    @FurtherFromSky Moderator

    There are a few good songs toward the end that feel more like the Damnwells stuff. The last two tracks redeemed the album to a certain degree. But most of it feels like him trying to be too witty or "edgy" and shooting himself in the foot.
  24. Yeah not feeling this album. The first one grew on me quite a bit, so hopefully this one will too, but on first listen I thought it was another step down. I agree about the "edginess" that he's adopted on his solo releases. Seems unnecessary and forced.

    The second track, "Holding onto You," is probably the second worst song I've heard this year after the new Sam Hunt single. He grew into one of my favorite songwriters with The Damnwells, but he seems to have lost something since then. Not sure what's going on.
