I’m a huge RA apologist and I really liked it but it didn’t quite make my 10 favorite albums. It’s probably around 12 for me.

7. Vince Staples - Big Fish Theory
8. Kelly Lee Owens - Kelly Lee Owens
9. Chief Keef - Thot Breaker

DJ Quik & Problem - Rosecrans
Young Thug - Beautiful Thugger Girls
Destroyer - ken
they'd changed it with a grand piano and turned it into a love song. how they did it, i don't know. DJs had worsened since the rising. elaborating on nothing in praise of the track with words they could hardly pronounce, in telephone voices.

Didn't that Phoenix record come out this year? No one is feeling this one I guess... I personally love it.

That's the correct answer, since the album has infinite content and no one has finished listening to it yet.

For me it’s sorta apologising for the fact despite I listen to a bunch a stuff I always end up with a boring white male rockist list


Also if we are all doing it I think it could be interesting data to present age group faves

the dead wizzies

im 11

1. Lebenden Toten - Mind Parasites [not on bandcamp just youtube it]
Pretty wigged out noise punk with synth interludes and a weird Hawkwindy-y vibe
2. Prurient - Rainbow Mirror https://profoundlorerecords.bandcamp.co ... bow-mirror
Dom goes from tooth drill noises to dunking your head in the toilet, low end "d00m 3l3ctr0nic5"
3. Milk Music - Mystic 100s https://milkmusic.bandcamp.com/releases
local weed rock
4. USA/Mexico - Laredo https://usamexico12xu.bandcamp.com/album/laredo
Audio equivalent of that part in William T. Vollman's "Imperial" where he takes an innertube down a disgusting border river and gets a skin infection
5. ISS - Endless Pussyfooting https://iss2012.bandcamp.com/album/endless-pussyfooting
Self loathing sample based synth punk ouroborus. Impress other punks by saying "that's a pitch shifted Lipcream sample FYI"
6. John Maus - Screen Memories https://johnmaus.bandcamp.com/album/screen-memories
I enjoy the musical stylings of John Maus
7. Uniform - No Trending https://uniformatl.bandcamp.com/album/no-trending
Weirdo mid-tempo punk w/ a lot going on
8. Gaussian Curve - The Distance https://music-from-memory.bandcamp.com/ ... e-distance
gentle jam band
9. Group Doueh & Cheveu - Dakhla Sahara Sessions http://shop.bornbadrecords.net/album/da ... ra-session
Like partying at Sahara Lounge in ATX
10. Naomi Punk - Yellow https://naomipunkct.bandcamp.com/album/yellow
Wigged out concept record that got kinda swept away but has so many great parts in it's 2 hour run time

Gonna go ahead and say Brand New - Science Fiction but mostly because it is good and it made it all the more disappointing when Jesse Lacey was revealed to be such a fucking shitbag

I'd say a new thread for the bad lists would be a good idea, I would do it, but I , am missing the necessary keyboard component

also sorry half my links died but i implore you to jam via search engine of your choice
