Figured I would actually make a new thread here for a change haha. This is a place to discuss anything about music that comes out this year - your favorite songs/albums that have come out, anything you're excited for that's coming out, any concerts you're planning on going to this year, etc. I'm hoping we can have a bit more discussion here than we typically get out of the what are you listening to thread.
Anyways, I'll start. The start of the year has been pretty slow but there have finally been some good albums starting to come out! I've been obsessing over this new Teen Daze album. Really beautiful ambient indie stuff.
I've been digging the new Sampha album a lot too. At its core its some really well-produced R&B, but its super well done. He has a super unique voice, a really ineresting lyrical style, and a bunch of really diverse influences in his music. Not the biggest name, but for anybody who listened to Kanye's The Life of Pablo last year he was the guest vocalist on his song Saint Pablo. This is one of my favorites from the album:
As for things I'm excited for, Future just announced a new album coming out this Friday that I'm hoping is good. Considering going to see him this summer but he's playing at an outdoor venue that's kind of far from my city so I'm not sure if I'll be able to swing it. Animal Collective has an EP coming out this friday too that I hope is good but after how disappointing the first single was and how mediocre last year's album is I'm not getting my hopes up too much.
How about the rest of you all?
