Trying out some Mexican indie pop rock to start the day. It’s good! Kind of a Strokes/Phoenix sound

Moody alt-pop from Oxford

Hooky pop-rock - fairly straight forward but lots of earworms. Backed by Charli XCX I think

Misty Coast - When I Fall From The Sky
Spaced-out indie from Norway. Sounds nice.

Spencer Krug - Fading Graffiti
From the chap who was probably on half of the Canadian Music League songs.

Francois Bruet - Flux FluO De La Foule
Think this was last week, but don’t remember it being mentioned. French sounds.

And then Sufjan and Son Lux for me (Son Lux also have Kadhja Bonet on of the songs, so looking forward to checking that out).

Two main ones for me today. The long awaited second album from post metal band Crown

and the new one from Canadian black metal band Spectral Wound, it’s a bit early for such ferocity as yet, I’ll stick this on when I’m a bit more awake!

It’s bad throwback metal day!

Offspring and poundland Zepplin rip offs Greta Van Fleet have albums out. Can’t wait to hear what Offspring sound like in the year 2021. I bet it’s a lot like 1992.

April is turning into a new music wasteland for me. Might try out The Armed.

Last night, seeing they have a new album coming, I watched some Greta Van Fleet videos for the first time. I guess every generation gets The Darkness it deserves, and in this case, irony free…

To answer my own question.

Yes Offspring sound exactly like they used too. In fact they may have been the same songs. With the exception of a Love cats rip off called “we never have sex anymore” which is as bad as you’d imagine with that title.
