I’ve only properly listened to two records this year so far.

Amen Dunes - Freedom. This is fucking fantastic. 9/10.

Hookworms - can’t remember the title. I thought it sounded great but the songs were a bit boring and meandering. 6/10.

  1. Ought
  2. Car Seat Headrest

Then…

Preoccupations
Hookworms
Django Django
U.S Girls
