His voice reminds me of someone, Interpol's lead singer?



I saw SY's name mentioned in a review on RYM and it earned their #1 of the year also.


Not sure if it's my cup of noise.



It’s a good record, but it ain’t no masterpiece. I think it could be argued that it’s not even the best Daughters album.

I think people are just SO deprived of experimental and noise music on the national level that a little bit goes along way, and feels like more of a definitive statement than it likely is.
Frankly, I think acts like JPEGMafia and Death Grips — both decidedly non-rock (for the most part) — did more for NOISE in 2018 than Daughters did.

But it’s a fine album. It’s good.

Also, the singer (Alexis Marshall) sometimes reminds me of Kurt Cobain at his “Tourette’s”/“Radio Friendly Unit Shifter”/“Milk it” screamiest. There are also hints of Trent Reznor at his “Big Man with a Gun” screamiest. But I hear no Interpol.

I’m listening to a smattering of music from 2018, trying to sort my lists as I get ready to head to Xmas with family.

Yeah their album titles aren’t nearly long enough

You dig Pretty Little Lightning Paw? This is Our Punk Rock?

Fucking amazing.

Those two EPs — Lightning Paw and This is our Punk Rock — are the best things ASMZ has ever done. “Fuck off Get Free We Pour Light on Everything” is way up there too.

Sparks- Propaganda


Haven't listened to Sparks for a while. I like their kooky humour and of course, melodic tunes.

Capping off 2018 with something that was released this year. This was a legitimate surprise. I didn't think I could enjoy an MGMT album as much as did this one. Really solid release

Listening to blink-182's Enema of the State, and regretting my choices.

Madonna. I still can't find my copy of True Blue though :(
