    Kid Cudi's "Man on the Moon III" released today, so I'm taking it out for a spin right now. Liking it so far!

    Anyone jamming the new Taylor Swift album?

    I have never been a big Swift fan but this album and folklore I have enjoyed quite a bit. She is definitely a stronger lyricist than she was earlier in her career.

      Enjoyed the back half of the album where but it started off slow for me. The first five or six songs felt so systematic and forced to me.

    I've been continuing my dive into Saintseneca's discography. They've has quickly become one of my favorite bands of all time, which is real surprising to me. Most of my "favorite artists" from the past few years I've had some sort of deeply personal connection to, 'cause the past few years have been real hard for me. Catharsis, etc. But, in Saintseneca's case, their music is just... good? Solid? Hard to deny?

    My timeline for getting into them went:

      Crazy good band, I'm wearing one of their sweatshirts right now. Dark Arc is maybe the most underrated indie album of the 2000s, it's easily on the level of something like Funeral but I rarely see people mention them. Their former singer Maryn Jones also has a couple great solo records under the name YOWLER, as well as one of my favorite pop punk LPs with All Dogs.

        Absolutely agreed! I mentioned only a few tracks from Dark Arc but it really is such a consistently good front-to-back listen. Every track is stellar!

        I love Maryn's music, too. The Offer was actually how I first found out about Saintseneca? I really got into Water, but especially the self-titled track (Yowler). The third verse with the layered vocals is chef's kiss.

    Mitch Murder 80's Synth Pop So satisfying. Bought a bunch of his releases off BandCamp in WAV format. Great sound!

      How did you like it? I think it's right in the middle between SILY and Wildflower. I don't think anything they put out will ever top SILY for me but I think they really improved upon what they were trying to do with Wildflower. Right now my AOTY is between this and clipping.

        I liked it and would agree with you. It's hard for anything to come near SILY, but I definitely enjoy it more than Wildflower.

    I've been diving into Tyler, The Creator. I like his songs "Glitter", "911/Mr. Lonely", "Who Dat Boy" and "I THINK". I've also been listening to Nina Samone's "Be My Husband".

      Glitter is so good! I'm assuming you've already seen it, but I can never miss a chance to plug his Tiny Desk Concert.

    I recently came across a song from Jack Stauber called Buttercup from this video. (The video is not one that Jack created, it's called Kick-Heart, and you can find (that full video here). That one event has now sent me down a rabbit hole of Jack Stauber songs, of which I enjoy most. The other that really springs to mind is: Dead Weight

      +1! Aleph, Peppermint, and Doctor are all pop gems. (Thanks to @Whom for showing me Jack Stauber, too.)

    Odin's Raven Magic is an amazing live performance of the eponymous ancient norse poem, interjected with some melodic instruments and some funky electronic shit. I don't normally go for this kind of album but it works.

    Christmas Vibes, a nice jazzy take on the familiar Christmas songs.

    Songs of Comfort and Hope - Yo-Yo Ma, Kathryn Stott. I'm a big fan of Ma. He performed the Bach cello suites live on youtube during the first wave of the pandemic and talked a lot about songs that gave him comfort, so it's no surprise he put out an album of these songs.

    Well, it's a bit crude, but I've been listening to Anus by Alaska Thunderfuck. It's sassy and fitting for Night City. CDPR needs to add in a custom radio station.

    I've also been listening to old episodes of The Georg Rockall-Schmidt Show on YT. Rather amusing, if also crude in places.
