New Music Friday - 3/1/19

Post by Lunkhead » Fri Mar 01, 2019 10:51 am

Anybody checking out anything new today?

I just listened to the new album by Solange. It was alright, pretty mellow. Very Stevie Wonder-y sounding in the palette of synth sounds used.

Weezer has "The Black Album" out, I'm trying to listen but ... ugh. I just don't need to listen to them be a generic top 40 pop rock band. Blergh.

Dozens more new albums today to check out: https://www.albumoftheyear.org/2019/rel ... ?s=release

Thanks for the reminder! I fell down a Tortoise hole this morning and have been listening to them all day.

I'll take a break to listen to these next:

Hozier - Wasteland, Baby! I'm not a fan or anything, but I heard a lot about his new song Nina Cried Power and really liked it. Curious if the rest of the album is good too.

Shy Girls - Bird on the Wing

Sun Kil Moon - I Also Want to Die in New Orleans


PS - Anyone willing to check out the new Bryan Adams or Queensryche?

I wanted to check out Sun Kil Moon. I'll probably try that next. Right now I'm listening to "Ulfilas' Alphabet" by Sundara Karma. Never heard of them before but I'm enjoying this first track.

Wasn't too impressed with either Hosier or Shy Girls. Listening to Kehlani - While We Wait. Very groovy.

Did you actually listen to the Sun Kil Moon album? I'm not sure I'm even going to make it through this first track, with it's 12+ minutes of stream of consciousness recounting of events. It's kinda putting me to sleep...

Yes, those tracks are seriously long. I don't remember how much of it I listened to. It is fairly intimidating.
