    Started listening to Gojira and Soen, something I should've done years ago but I never had "time" for it.
    Spiced it up with some Hevy Dev and Zeal and Ardor, the latter of which I saw live last week and was really impressed by. Also saw the Norwegian Shining the same day which I used to love but sadly they've commercialized, ditched the bits that made them good and are also serially ripping off Muse for some reason. Big disappointment.

    Started listening to some good 'ol Emperor today, I love that hyperactive black metal dude.
    Here's my chart of past 7 days, doesn't include mobile device plays, only desktop.

    edit: if anyone knows any more Gojira/Meshuggah-like bands (aka heavy as hell and proggy as fuck), please let me know! I love that stuff, the weirder the better.

      Check out Vektor's Terminal Redux. I guarentee it will jive with you. It's like Progressive/Technical/Thrash if I had to try to pigeonhole it. That being said, all three of their albums are stellar and you should check out the others if you like the one I recommended.

      As far as weird prog metal I don't think anyone does it better than Sigh.

      If you somehow missed it, Cryptopsy's None So Vile sounds like something you'd be into.

      You probably already know Animals as Leaders but if not check them out. Tosin Abasi is insane.

        Yep, that's my go-to focus music. Hyperactive complex music works wonders with adhd somehow.

    Pretty much the same as last week:

    Phantastic Ferniture: Phantastic Ferniture
    Great indie rock, female vocals. Good stuff

    The Marias: Superclean Vol. 1 and Vol. 2
    Just discovered them, can't decided which album I prefer. If you like lounge/funk/dreamy goodness, you'll like this.

    Laurel: DOGVIOLET
    I've seen this described as "chamber pop". Sure, whatever it is I love it.

    The Beths: Future Me Hates Me
    The energy is carried throughout the entire album. It's indie pop/rock, can't go wrong.

    No Vacation: Intermission and Amo XO
    Dream indie pop rock with some surf vibes here and there.

    I've been listening to the Mirror's Edge: Catalyst soundtrack while working. And when I'm feeling really excited I put on What's Up Danger by Blackway ;)

      Solar Fields (who did the soundtracks for the Mirror's Edge games) is excellent "work music". Make sure to check out his non-soundtrack albums too, they're very good as well.

    Still listening to Better Oblivion Community Center! Joint album by Phoebe Bridgers and Conor Oberst (of Bright Eyes fame). Chesapeake scratches the itch of mine for cozy, emotional, confessional folky music. It's so beautiful.

    I have loads of similar music if you're like me and want to feel. :V

    New Czarface vs. Ghostface album came out just last week I want to say. I listened to most of it the other night and really enjoyed. I've been an esoteric fan for a long time and he seems to get better with every release. It's been fun watching him progress over the years. He's an endless stream of punchlines I love it. I was also just listening to Kvelertak wondering if they'd put out a new album soon. 1st album was 2010, 2nd 2013, and 3rd 2016. Now I'm no patternologist but I'd say they put out a new album in whatever year 2016 plus 3 is.

    Right now I've been on a Ghost kick, other than that it's been my regular electro swing, edm, and j-rock.

    I listened to a lot of frank ocean and the new Hozier album slaps!

    I found this band, Summer Salt and they are super chill.

    I also keep coming back to Chuck Bass D's seminal album

    Not music - but I'm listening to The Glass Cannon Podcast which is hilarious.
