Best of 2017?

Best of 2017?

Postby version sound » Fri Sep 29, 2017 12:52 pm

Getting to be that time of year. I can only think of maybe 5 new releases I bought this year, so I guess that would be my Too 5 by default. What good records/CDs/MP3s did I miss out on?

I bought no records this year that were released in 2017.

I guess I paid for it, but I don't have it in my possession yet, so I don't count it.

Even though I am old, strange and slow, I just bought a record that came out yesterday, only listened to it once, but I'm gonna put it my very short list of records that I like from 2017.

It's the singer dude from Knapsack and The Jealous Sound and Sergie from Samiam, Soup and Sweet Baby Jesus.

It's not "punk", but I'm digging it. Basically, since it's Blair singing and writing most of the music, it's The Jealous Sound.

I didn't buy tons of new records this year, lots of reissues & old stuff


Oh Sees- Orc (Best of the year so far)
Mark Lanegan Band- Gargoyle
Dead Heavens- Whatever Witch You Are
Ho99o9- United States of Horror
Alan Vega- It
Dead Cross- s/t
Fireburn- Don't stop the youth -E.P. Can't wait for a full-length

Lee Renaldo- Electric Trim. Just got it & I don't know how I feel yet, Lee has been heavily influenced by 60's psychedelic, trippy-hippy music but this almost seems like a relic of that era by some weird, pop genius. Still trying to figure this one out

alvvays: antisocialites
clowns: lucid again
exit order: seed of hysteria
needles//pins: good night tomorrow
night demon: welcome to the night
power trip: nightmare logic
the war on drugs: a deeper understanding

these were all a little disappointing:
cloud nothings: life without sound
haim: something to tell you
the preatures: girlhood

I second this. I was pleasantly surprised at how jaw-droppingly great it is even though I really liked the last one, too (Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Free Downloads).

Good album, though a bit samey. Bought the vinyl, which came with a 160kbps-download. Fuck you, Rise Records!

320 kbps or higher has been the standard for a decade, so that's surprising to me. With that said, even when I had super high quality Shure e3c in-ear headphones, I couldn't really hear the difference between 192 and anything higher. The differences below that were much more noticeable, though.

Very true. It doesn't sound sound shitty, but inferior. And it bugs me.

FWIW, I have had luck e-mailing labels when they've supplied shitty downloads and (politely) asked for higher bit rates files. They typically have them laying around and have either sent me a zip file or a link.

Worth a shot.
