Music in 2017

Ed Droste is currently streaming new Grizzly Bear on his instagram

sounding good !

Really looking forward to seeing The Hotelier in January. Hoping Brand New are gonna put something good out before they split. Still holding out hope for the Jim Ward-less ATDI but we’ll see.

Would be nice to see some more of the interesting R&B that’s been released in the past few years

Dare I even mention… Chromatics?


A lot that could potentially be great:
The National, Flaming Lips, Sigur Ros, Spiritualized, Bruce, Jay-Z, Father John Misty.

Of those not mentioned, I also have hopes for the Chills revival: they’ve been playing some unreleased tracks and I reckon they’ve got another album in them, either later this year or next year. And maybe the Mountain Goats? They average an album every 18 months or so, so I guess we might get lucky?


There’s a similar thread to this one over here:

Just remembered: Hookworms

Any new song from the artist’s from this mix, I’m pretty stoked for.

Perfect timing!

Mogwai is an odd one. On one hand they seem to be stuck in a bit of a rut and aren’t really pushing out in new directions. On the other hand nobody else does quietly Scottish melancholia quite so beautifully.

Other stuff I am hoping for in 2017 is a new Slowdive album (plus Ride and the Mary Chain both have new albums out). Jens Lekman, a possible new album from Motorama, the Toothless album, new stuff from Luxembourg Signal and loads more.

I also really really want to see Klangstof live in 2017 and can’t wait for King Creosote.

gotta say I’m pretty jazzed about 2017 as it’s looking already. check this lot out:

Anna Wise - The Feminine Act II
Blonde Bunny - Worldwide 100
Colin Stetson - All This I Do For Glory
Conor Oberst - Salutations
Dirty Projectors - Dirty Projectors
Oxbow - Thin Black Duke
Pissed Jeans - Why Love Now?
The Necks - Unfold
Toby Driver - Madonnawhore

Mountain Goats album coming on 19th May. Called it. Looks smug

I’m really looking forward to the new Nadia Reid album. The snippets I’ve heard so far are amazing

Looking forward yo the new Sylvan Esso LP.

Love those guys!


In that entire list, I reckon I recognise maybe a dozen artists, and only actively like 1 of them (Lorde)

That’s now somewhat out of date as there’s a lot more titles and names added now here:

A lot of names I am not even familiar with there, or are but don’t care for, including Lorde (despite the fact Mayer Hawthorne covered 1 of her songs)

couple more to add:

At the Drive-in - Inter Alia
Crystal Fairy - Crystal Fairy

could be a good year for me

Interesting - thought you’d already written off Pissed Jeans & new ATD-I?
