I'm pretty sure we talked about something akin to this not too long ago. Maybe it was "Most SY-esque albums" or something. But it probably involves discussion of artists that were already either broken up (Women), painfully well-known (Deerhunter), or had long since turned to absolute butternut shite (...Trail of Dead).
Anyway, I agree. This is a very good idea for an ongoing thread, and it should probably be stickied to the top of this forum.
That said, I can't think of anyone new(ish) off the top of my head who sounds like Sonic Youth in 2017. So this might sink like a stone too. I will give it some thought though, and return with hopefully a recommendation or two.
