Not a fan of the Ty Segall?

Also, more people need to check out that Forth Wanderers album.

I feel like this year has been pretty slow so far. Only three that have really struck me are Beach House, Rhye, and Pusha T.

Thinking the same thing. My favorite album has been the Black Panther soundtrack, but I've been quite disappointed with what Justin Timberlake and Kanye have put out. Although Lift Yourself may be the funniest Kanye song ever.

DEATH AND THE MAIDEN. WISTERIA.

Goddamn what an album. Without a doubt my #1 so far.

Will share a more complete list when I have the time.

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

I'd say I've got a pretty clear top three (no order) - Knock Knock, 2012-2017 and Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino, and a shitload of others I need to spend more time with.

Only two real stand outs thus far for me -

Donovan Woods - Both Ways
Janelle Monae - Dirty Computer

OK - three.

Is It Far Or Is It Close by Author for me. I will be shocked if something tops it. But I don't listen to nearly as much new music as others here.
