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

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

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.
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?

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.
