    If you ask most of the major publications, it’s been mid-year list time for at least a month.

    Trusted Prestigious

    Bad Religion “Age Of Unreason”

    Thave been a lot of good short releases/RSD/EP’s/Alt Version releases from Thrice, Menzingers, Justin Pierre, Julien Baker, Donovan Woods, New Found Glory, Simple Creatures, All Get Out to name a few.

    Bad Books, Dangerous Summer and a few other albums.

    Cookie the Clown was a disasterpiece. Innovative and disturbing. Can’t think of a better way to describe it, even though I may never listen to it again for a long time (except for maybe a song or two).

    Really looking forward to Menzingers full length, Noah Gundersen, Jimmy Eat World, Frank Turner, Blink 182, Simple Creatures, NOFX, Austin Plaine, Lagwagon, City and Colour, possibly Julien Baker although that could in 2020 Like I believe Brian Fallon and Ryan Key will be.

    we must be nothing less than fabulous Prestigious

    My current favorite, to my surprise, is Ariana Grande's thank u, next.

    Obviously loving having new Carly Rae Jepsen in my life.

    Other stuff I've enjoyed includes Copeland, The Japanese House, Billie Eilish, Newsboys, Citizens, Tallies, probably some other stuff I'm forgetting.

    Weirdly haven't spent any time with The National, which in theory I should love. If you'd told me a couple years ago I'd have listened to Ari & the dang Newsboys more than The National, I would've laughed, but hey, life is funny.

    I can’t believe how much I come back to the Tallies album. They have found a way to be capture an older sound yet stay modern. They are also very receptive on social media and love talking about the album.

    I know I’m judging myself. Basically I kept waiting for the right time to listen for the first time because I wanted to give it the respect it deserves (not just listen at work or on the train), but I never found the time. I’ll make it a priority this weekend!
