Didn't see one of these yet. Some good stuff out in the past week.

Been rotating back and forth between new Future (The WIZRD) and Maggie Rogers (Heard It In a Past Life). Recommend both. Future is Future and Maggie Rogers balances out my high levels of toxic masculinity when listening to too much Future. Maggie sounds like if there was fourth HAIM sister that felt she could make better music than the other three and decided to go solo.

Weezer just released a cover album (The Teal Album) and the cover is genius...




Track listing:

Africa
Everybody Wants to Rule the World
Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)
Take On Me
Happy Together
Paranoid
Mr. Blue Sky
No Scrubs
Billie Jean
Stand By Me

Really leaning into the Africa cover buzz, which is the most Weezer thing ever.

Not a big Weezer fan but this is awesome - covering all those 80 tracks.

Flatland Cavalry released a new album last week that's a really good follow up from their first one.

Dream Theater is the one I'm most excited for. I'm one of the rare people that actually likes Mangini's drumming over Portnoy's. And I'm a big fan of Portnoy

Better Oblivion Community Center is pretty good. It's a dumb name for sure, but it's Phoebe Bridgers and Conor Oberst.

They all sound just as basic and mailed in to me.

My favorite new songs lately are "Harmony Hall" by Vampire Weekend and "Now That You're Gone" by the Raconteurs!

I am unabashed about loving Beck on this board. I love the diversity of his albums and the range you get from his performances. Anyway, he just released a cover of Tarantula which he made for the movie Roma. It's a relatively straight forward cover (minus the originals 80 synth pop stuff), but I'm really impressed with his vocals. It's the version of Beck that won him AOTY for Morning Phase. Definitely worth a listen.

My efforts to stay in the loop on new music has significantly decreased over the last 3 years. I am trying to be better in 2019. Here are the albums on my docket thus far...

Toro y Moi - "Outer Peace"
Maggie Rogers - "Heard It In A Past Life"
James Blake - "Assume Form"

Same here. I don't know what it is. It used to be a labor of love, but slugging through all the white noise feels more and more tedious. Sometimes it's just easier to throw on a classic album and let it roll.

Pretty excited for the new Son Volt record, actually. I don't typically go for country, but Son Volt is one of a handful of acts that manages to hit the sweet spot for my taste.

Yup. I think in general music has moved towards singles and short EP style albums vs. single pieces of "art". Not to mention I am older, busier, and more out of touch daily. Ha.

I also forgot Boogie - "Everythings for Sale". I haven't had a song get stuck in my head like "Silent Ride" in a while.

Intense video, intense song. Good song.

Going along with this, Toolband.com just updated their splash page imagery.
Maynard commented in Jan he was done tracking his vocals.
They are playing 3 festivals in May..


This may actually be happening soon. 13 years in the making.

I'm a GCJ fan. Own most of his albums, and I hated that. Couldn't even finish it. Hate the synthesizer that kicks in at the beginning of the song. A lot of the lyrics are spoken instead of sung. A lot I disliked there.

I thought it was missing a ripping solo, but I actually kind of dug the sound of the whole thing. It is different from most GCJ stuff, though.

Sounds like he is doing a Kanye impersonation stylistically.

Haven't heard of the Weezer Teal album before this thread but upon listening it's fantastic. But then again the Blue Album is permanently in my top 5 all time albums.

The Black Album is coming out soon so this is just a teaser before then, I guess.

I love the Blue album, doesn't mean you have to like everything they make.
