Might as well throw the song and video of 2017 into this West Coast Wednesday mix. Kendrick is the king right now, and if it wasn’t a sure thing before this lead single to the new album dropped, it was after.
This is an incredibly fun album by a punk band from Bogota, Columbia. Punk en Español sung by a female vocalist?! How can you not love that? Their album is out for purchase mid-November but you can stream it now at their bandcamp site:
MGMT have just released their promising new single and title track for their upcoming album “Little Dark Age”. Hopefully this album will be a return to the magical form of Oracular Spectacular and Congratulations.
I’ve been listening to this album nonstop since it came out yesterday. I’m a big fan of their previous two efforts but I think they really got everything to click with this one. It’s perfectly controlled chaos. It builds and crashes out of nowhere. It’s the feeling of rolling down a mountain with no brakes while laughing uncontrollably. It’s thrashable and it’s danceable at the same time. This is a master class in post-punk.
NPR is killing the game today. How can I listen to all these great albums at once?! If you weren’t ready to kick enough asses after that Chelsea Wolfe, METZ have you covered. Speaking of covered, I love the album art for this.
