Two B-sides from the great Critical Equation by Dr. Dog released today.
Dr. Dog - Critical 7"
Someone else listen to Queen Zee plz
Wow what happened with emarosa? People like this?
Lume put out a couple B-Sides from Wrung Out
Emarosa and the August Burns Red EP for me. Not super excited for either but let's see how this goes.
Some brief early reviews
1. As December Falls - I had a lot of fun listening to this album. I wouldn't be so fast to jump to the Paramore comparison. Yes it's a female lead. Yes, it's upbeat and catchy and yes there are nice little riffs and solo guitar work mixed in to each track but it has a different feel to me than Paramore ever did. Anyway it's worth a listen to those who enjoy this type of sound. This is a high quality energetic and fun release.
2. Ariana Grande - I've never been a big mainstream pop music listener and have often just quickly glossed over Ariana's earlier records while recognizing her talent as a vocalist. This album seems more stripped down at times and genuine than her earlier works. There is less of that ultra high pitched yet somehow shallow singing that I remember dominating much of her older music. I surprisingly liked it. I won't be surprised to see this album at #1 on the charts for awhile. She certainly won't lose any fans with this one.
3. Emarosa - I just finished listening. Maybe an early contender for AOTY? I loved it. We'll see if this holds true on future listens. This sound Emarosa has put together reminds me of a finely crafted take on some Head Automatica with more pop influence.
4. Calling All Captains - I've never heard of this band so I added their EP to my Apple Music and I look forward to spinning it soon.
Lovin the cool pop reggae vibes from The Holdup
I just found Quiet Company who just released a 5-song EP. I'm really enjoying it.
Absolutely loving the Emarosa record. Also had a lot of fun listening to the new Busted record. I tried Ariana, but I've never been able to stand her voice, so I could only stand a few tracks before giving up.
Said The Whale - Cascadia
Good stuff, been listening to him lately thanks to a Spotify Playlist he popped up on...didn't know he had a new album out.
You missed Emarosa my dude
HEALTH is glorious.
This for me today.
Big into the Queen Zee and HEALTH records, yeah.
YES QUEEN ZEE
Didn't think their record was out until like April or something, this was a nice surprise today for sure.
New LCD Soundsystem rocks hard.
One of the best concerts I've ever been to. Wasn't a believer before seeing them live, but now I'm a big fan.
Gonna check out Bob Mould as well
Check out the new Flat Worms record if you're into fuzzy punk rock.
New Emarosa is really fantastic.
Is Dick Muffin not in Emarosa anymore? If so, I may actually listen to it.
Johnny hasn’t been in Emarosa for quite a while there buddy.
They didn’t have an album thread here, which I pull from, and for some reason Hopeless never appears on any of the release date calendars I check each week.
I stopped paying attention to that band a long, long time ago. I'm glad he's gone, I always liked the style.
