The new Liquid Tension Experiment album is fun. Anyone into prog should give it a go.

We had a rule at work one season where the fifth time Moves Like Jagger played we got to go home.

Happy new year to the few people who read the music forum! Royal Blood have opened 2021 strong with a new banger of a single and an album announcement. Already probably a strong contender for my

Darkside, the project of Nicolas Jaar and David Harrington, are releasing a new album. They released a song for their new album at the end of 2020. This song is so great. I put off list

Aaron Lewis from Staind has a new song out. It is very bad. If you thought the conservatism and pandering on his last solo country was bad this song is all I LOVE MY COUNTRY LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT ISN’T IT SAD THEY’RE TEARING DOWN CONFEDERATE STATUES. By the way, Aaron Lewis is from Massachusetts.

That Illumanti Hotties is legit, never heard them before but definitely digging more into that. Nice share!

yes! I'd definitely recommend their mixtape from last year "FREE I.H." its more in line with this sound than their debut album "Kiss Yr Frenemies"

I will definitely check more of this out. Have to say, punk rock is being revived by brilliant women and I'm here for it.

I’ve been listening to the Floating Points/Pharaoh Sanders/London Symphony Orchestra album regularly for about a month now, it’s really fantastic.

Anita Lane passed away, she was probably best known/remembered for being in The Birthday Party with Nick Cave and being a fairly frequent Nick Cave collaborator.

New Self Esteem single is a banger. 

Also loving girlinred's debut album.

Got a few things lined up to listen to - been told I'll love latest releases from Crumb and For Those I Love.

New Dropkick Murphys album is a fun listen, been meaning to check more of their stuff out and they just happened to have released one on Friday I'd heard absolutely nothing about.

I got the new album but haven't heard it yet. I used to love them in the early 00s. Not as much nowadays, but I'll still check them out live every chance I can.

If you haven't yet, check out Sing Loud, Sing Proud. It's still the album I'd recommend the most, though they rarely play any of those songs live anymore. The perfect combination (for my tastes obviously) of 90s punk rock, a couple of anthems to remind you of their earlier street punk days, and a few Celtic/Folk songs or covers.

Blackout and the Warrior's Code are still similar but not as intense, I feel. I like those, but not as much. Then, Meanest of Times is sort of a transition album. I believe it's the first not on Hellcat Records and then it became way to folksy for my liking. Also, the times I've seen them live lately, people are really into their new stuff. I have to say I understand why but I wish they kept more pre-2007 material in their setlists.

New Czarface/MF DOOM album Super What? comes out today. Esoteric explained that it was recorded in April of last year, mixed and mastered over the summer, and shelved due to the pandemic. Album has a "DOOM Side" and a "Czar Side".

EDIT: listening to the first track and there's an Orange Cassidy reference, nice.

Plus you're standin' there like Orange Cassidy
With your hands in your pockets, the audacity
Breakin' necks when I flex like X-23
I pass the mic' back to the king, D.M.C., get 'em

It's so good. There's a soundbite about Mr. Wrestling 2 on there, too.

Van Weezer shouldn't be as good as it is.

god I'm going to have to listen to that and the other one from the last year, I'm just trying to figure out the right context for it. Is it like Everything Will Be Alright in the End, an "oh right, power-pop is what we're really good at" album?

My knowledge of Weezer before this year is all of about four songs, so I'm really not the man to ask. I enjoyed it a lot, the blatant Crazy Train rip off in Blue Dream is great.

I think I've noticed a couple samples that are from wrestling, but I can't place where they're from exactly. There's a bit in one song about a guy who never took his mask off and even cashed checks at the bank masked, and I think that's the Mr. Wrestling 2 sample right?

Then there's another sample that sounds like a commentator talking about how someone's ripping at the mask.

I noticed the second sample, not sure where that one's from. The story about the guy never taking off his mask is definitely Mr Wrestling 2, because they mention him meeting Jimmy Carter while wearing it.

2021 is blessing me with a new Don Broco album. I absolutely adore Don Broco, it may be the only album that can dethrone the Royal Blood one for me.

There's also apparently new Biffy that's finished recording so who knows, 2021 may finish hella strongly.

Yeah I think that'll be a good gig to book in for the end of 2021, feel like November could be mad for gigs.
