1.31.2017 | Animal Flag - Everything Will Be Okay: An improvement, but not as good as their newest.


Animal Flag - Flood of Sunlight: Glad I listened to the newest album first because I might have otherwise tuned out.


Ryan Allen - Basement Punk: I think we have a difference of opinion on both punk and basement.


52 Hertz - Demo/Somnolence/Twosome: Mostly forgettable but not worthless alternative(?) rock.


Neil Young - Peace Trail: I could get behind more of this.


You Blew It! - 2016 - Abendrot: '90s emo lives!


Wovenhand - Star Treatment: Always worth a listen.


Jack White - Acoustic Recordings: What a great collection.


Weyes Blood - Front Row Seat To Earth: A little slow moving for where I was at the time.


Watsky - x Infinity: Keep making music please.


1.22.2017 | Turnstile - Move Thru Me: Unsurprising hardcore. Sometimes that is just fine.


Touche Amore - Stage Four: I always forget about how great they are between album cycles.


Super Unison - Auto: Worth listening to on a regular basis.


Suffocate For Fuck Sake - In My Blood: Cribbing parts of City of Caterpillar and Converge is one way to get my attention.


Somos - First Day Back: Some strong tracks, but the production holds it back a bit.


Solange - Seat At The Table: Could not get into it.


Smoke DZA & Pete Rock: Don'e Smoke Back: Best old-school hip-hop album of 2016?


Sleigh Bells - Jessica Rabbit: How the music industry has changed since they came on the scene. They now sound dated.


Xenia Rubinos - Black Terry Cat: I can skip it.


Rolling Stones - Blue And Lonesome: Wow!


Planes Mistaken For Stars - Prey: Decent return.


Pinegrove - Cardinal: Really surprised this made so many year end lists. Deserving, just surprising.


Papa M - Highway Songs: Sounds like demos to a new Slint album. Please?


Angel Olsen - My Woman: Such an incredibly haunting voice.


Neurosis - Fires Within Fires: Mostly as expected.


Kevin Morby - Singing Saw: Really want to give it a second listen.


Metallica - Hardwired... To Self-Destruct: Runs too long, but even shorter would not be very interesting to me.


Cass McCombs - Mangy Love: Not sure why I tried.


Leithause and Batmanglij - I Had A Dream: Make more please.


Mikey Erg - Tentative Decisions: Loved this album despite no context for who he is.


Cymbals Eat Guitars - Pretty Years: Play it really loud.


Culture Abuse - Peach: One of the best punk-related albums of 2016.


Common - Black America Again: Musically safe, lyrically adventurous.


Childish Gambino - Awaken, My Love: I am not a big funk listener, but this was so good.


Tribe Called Quest - We Got It From Here: Not familiar with their classic work probably hurt my enjoyment of this.


Youth Funeral - I Would Do It All Again: Screamo is alive and well.


Vanishing Life - Exile/Surveillance: I love Walter, but this is my least favorite project of his.


Two Tongues - Two Tongues Two: What a disappointment, first single aside.


Trash Talk - Tangle: Monotonous.


Teenage Fanclub - Here: On the list of bands I should like based on other's opinions but I struggle to get into.


Strokes - Future Present Past: A return to form was the billing. Not sure I cared the first time around.


Vince Staples - Prima Donna: Not sure I can justify the hype.


Regina Spektor - Remember Us To Life: Not her strongest outing.


Jeff Rosenstock - Worry: Never has album art resembled so closely how I feel listening to the album.
