Best new/most anticipated albums: 2018
 
woohoo! Let's leave behind the year 2017 and look what's coming up in the new year 2018 !!!!!

and here's the first one:

EFRIM MANUEL MENUCK TO RELEASE SECOND SOLO RECORD PISSING STARS IN FEBRUARY 2018

I'm looking forward into this one a lot already. Looks like it will not be released on CD though? :confused: Or maybe just not yet...

Severian 12.13.2017 09:32 PM

Thanks for stealing my goddamn thread AGAIN. I was gonna post this tonight.

Oh well. I don’t care. you take it this year.

But ... goddamn man.

EDIT: It occurs to me that it might not have actually been you who did this exact same thing last year, and if that’s the case I’m sorry for getting shouty.

NEW TAPE DECK MOUNTAIN COMING IN FEBRUARY! First new LP since 2014!

Well, 2017 was a shitty year for music, but yeah we should probably have one.

I was also planning on making one of these, but not until the end of the year.
Anyone who wants to is free to.

Screaming Females have a new release coming... a couple of tracks have been released already. Marissa shreds on the guitar on a J Mascis level, so I've got a lot of time for their stuff https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ROpZSrq4Tf8

Hopefully that goddamn new Breeders album will come out. Loved the first tune from it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5i76b0OrdIQ

I forgot all about the fact that a new Breeders album was supposed to come out this year. Dammit. Hell yes that thing needs to come out!

Kind of. For me anyway.

I have a list of about 30 albums that I felt were worth noting this year. Of those 30, I might have 10 that Iíd be willing to put in a ďbest of the yearĒ list.

I normally have just an absolutely obscene amount of music by this point in the year. It often takes me until well into the following year to sort through the good albums, pick out the great ones, and then place them in order. This year Iím pretty sure I already have my list finished, and I havenít even started it yet.

Maybe Iím wrong and totally missing out on a bunch of shit though. You tell me.

I’m not questioning you, merely, you’re the only one I’ve seen sum up 2017 this way. I’m not position to debate as I’ve missed out on so much.

I might have missed out on some stuff too. I wasnít being sarcastic or anything. I really am open to the possibility that Iím wrong.

But what Iíve noticed is a lot of OK albums by good or formerly good artists, a lot of albums that are supposed to be good by newer artists that are actually quite boring, a shitload of truly mediocre releases from indie legacy bands like Iron & Wine, Grizzly Bear, Arcade Fire, GY!BE, etc., and a handful of really mind-blowing albums that are either be super obvious (like Kendrick) or went by without making any waves at all (like Blanck Massís excellent ďWorld EaterĒ).

Some artists I really admire like Ben Frost have come out with good albums that are also their least remarkable.

I was pleasantly surprised by a few records in the rock realm, but not a lot. Yossarians, Milk Music, a few others I canít recall just now.

I dunno. Feels like a very so-so year.

DJ Koze is working on a new album according to his social media ... uh... presence. Or maybe it was Resident Advisor. I dunno.

New Koze has been my #1 most anticipated non-Kanye album for the past five years.

Bytor Peltor 12.16.2017 05:08 PM

Can’t say it’s “anticipated” nor an “album,” but this Acid Bowie -Acid Bowie has infinite mixtape possibilities. Those who venture the samples will experience lush treats.
