the new schoolboy q album is out toda. got a couple clunkers on it but overall pretty solid, 7 or 8 out of 10. i think it's definitely an improvement on blank face. numb numb juice, crash, and 5200 are early highlights. will definitely be listening to it again a few times.

I felt the opposite. Only a first listen but I was very meh on it. Thought it was pretty flat and lacking the unique edge that Q normally brings to his songs/records. Numb Numb Juice was the highlight for me because it really snaps your neck. Blank Face is like many hip-hop records, really good but has four or five songs that you could easily live without, but on first listen CrasH Talk didn't give me much at all.

I thought it was pretty damn bad to his standards, very uninspired and compromised in some ways. Jay Rock's album was disappointing too, so I'm starting to worry about TDE.

Finally sat down with Remind Me Tomorrow. Can we name some albums on which one song is so far ahead of every other song on the album? Seventeen is so fucking amazing, but everything else on the record is so far behind. I really like Hands. I don't outright dislike any songs but Seventeen is just so far ahead. I'm seeing her next month so I'm hoping it'll be one of those shows where it elevates the studio recordings for you.

Also, if anyone can tell me what song Seventeen reminds them of I would be so grateful. It's driving me nuts. Is it a Springsteen song? Or is it just a song that sounds vaguely like a lot of poppy indie rock / Springsteen.

While Seventeen is indeed a stellar song and the best one of that album, I don't think some are that far behind. I also think that opener I Told You Everything, Comeback Kid and You Shadow are really good. On that last one I think she sounds quite like Aimee Mann. Seventeen does not immediately remind me of another song.

Last time I was listening to Seventeen, Travis said it reminded him of some song, so hopefully he chimes in.

And I'll second Comeback Kid being nearly as good as Seventeen.

Foals' Holy Fire had that problem, I thought My Number was so much better than everything else, I'd actually consider skipping it so I could pay closer attention to the other tracks. There's been quite a few others too, I'll try and think of them.

I recently got the latest Hozier album, Wasteland Baby! I mainly got it because Nina Cried Power is such an incredible song. Well, I thought the other songs were not even near as good as that one. As it is also the opening track, the album really fizzles out just after the start. One of the few this year's releases that have disappointed me.

Oh hahaha I just thought of the worst one ever. How many times have I complained about it here? Rocket, by Primative Radio Gods. There's no worse album for this.

On CrasH Talk, I gave it a proper listen and don't think I'll go back to it again. Numb Numb Juice and Attention are the only two songs that I really enjoyed, that have that harder edge to them that makes Q so appealing. Nearly everything else just sounds like average rap. CHopstix is one of the worst songs I've heard in a very long time.

Warpaint's last album, Heads Up. New Song is miles ahead of everything else, it's not even funny. Possibly the best song of their career, certainly top five, surrounded by an album that is otherwise mostly boring.

Guided by Voices have their second album of 2019 out “Warp and Woof” and it’s another cracker.
What an unexpected (somewhat), excellent return to form.
Brilliant.

With Lambchop, Bruce Hornsby and Guided by Voices it’s been a great year for old farts so far.
Makes me even more excited for the Pixies album release this year.
