And I'm going to repost this from the last thread because both of these acts definitely deserve attention and neither of them are shoegaze or atmospheric black metal or any of my usual Axvercore shit.

That run better include Coming Up.

I'd also say the double-disc b-sides collection Sci-Fi Lullabies is essential Suede. So much gold on there.

They managed to successfully crowdsource the funds to get to Bigsound in Brisbane, so hopefully they'll be in a position to tour the capital cities soon and really get their music out there. The Aussie scene really needs stuff like this, and I'm sure there'll be a promoter willing to back it.

So the thought was that too many RMT were created by Cobbler and the titles were self-referential, therefore the solution is a thread title that references Cobbler. 🤔🤔

Makes sense.

The last few Animal Collective solo efforts - Deakin's Sleep Cycle and Avey Tare's Eucalyptus - are both better than anything the main band has done in a long time.

Yeah.

Putting yourself in thread titles: obsessive, megalomaniacal

Making fun of someone else in thread titles: running gag

I have a hard time believing Avey Tare's album is good after Down There and Slasher Flicks were so boring, but I will probably give it a listen at some point.

I mean, it's not a terribly high bar to be better than Painting With, for example, but Eucalyptus is subdued and focused in a way that AC hasn't been in a LONG time.

Alicia, I didn't forget you. Work stuff got in the way and I've just kinda been out of it ever since. I'll get you those albums tonight.

Holy cats. That "I Need Hero" song is appallingly bad when you have to hear the whole fricking thing.

Also, Ashley, let me know if you're going to the San Diego show. I'll have your Blackhawks (?) blanket washed and ready for you.
