Discussion[discussion] Ok, music lovers. It's 2018, we've all had time to review best-of year-end lists. What albums did they miss? What albums were (in your opinion) unfairly ignored? What gems did you find that flew under everyone else's radar? (self.listentothis)
submitted 6 days ago by evilnightmoderator - announcement
Just drop the artist/album names into a comment below and perhaps point out your favorite track(s) from the release. We'll sort through them and make some big playlists for everyone to enjoy.
Any music, any country, any genre, the more the better, the crazier the better. Those albums you can't stop spinning, the ones you've listened to a dozen times or more since you found them? That's the good stuff.
Post a comment!

sorry for the dumb question... "we've all had time to review best-of year-end lists", you mean via other sites?
or do you mean user submissions for the listentothis best of 2017? because I didn't think we had visibility into other people's submissions this year...?
[–]evilnightmoderator[S] 0 points1 point2 points 6 days ago (3 children)
All the usual lists from all the usual places (NPR, Pitchfork, etc). They've been out for a couple of weeks now.
As for the best from listentothis itself, well, that's the whole point of this post - collecting nominations. We'll be posting the results around Feb 1.

IDLES - Brutalism
My pick for punk album of the year. I've seen a couple songs from it on here, but they didn't gain any traction and had very few comments. I was pretty surprised by that. My favorite tracks are probably Date Night and Mother, but I love pretty much the whole thing.
[–]CrunchyJellyfish 3 points4 points5 points 6 days ago (0 children)
Best EP of 2017 in my opinion:
Tennyson - Uh Oh! EP
Tennyson is a sibling duo from Canada that makes eccentric electronic music, often blending the line between acoustic sounds and electronic touches. For example on the track "Cry Bird" they incorporated a children's choir into the chorus.
Best tracks: Body Language, Cry Bird
[–]Serraphix 5 points6 points7 points 3 days ago (1 child)
Some of my favorites this year.
The Japanese House - Saw You in a Dream ) (electronic pop) track: Saw You in a Dream

Lunatic Soul - Fractured (Title Track)

A local band by the name of Big Fat Meanies dropped a concept album in December, it's a shame they're not bigger than the Southeast Pennsylvania area, they're incredible.
Also, Christopher Bill's Half Man, Half Machine is really good stuff. First album by him that's original.

Here's two very underrated electronic artists that make really unique tunes. Neither put out albums but their singles last year were fantastic. Marcioz has a completely different sound on all four of his tracks but they're all fantastic. GOLDWATER makes moody electronic. I was skeptical at first of both these artists but their tunes grew on me, so if you like electronic music give these guys a chance! Link is to a SoundCloud playlist I made with their best stuff from last year.
Marcioz & Goldwater

It's by far the most played 2017 release for me. I'm not even sure what genre I'd put them in, but they're absolutely fantastic.

Tiny Hazard - Greyland [experimental pop]
This is my favorite lesser known album this year. She fits squarely within the broad "childish songstress" archetype of Bjork, Kerli, and (kind of) Joanna Newsome. That being said, she's never derivative about it IMO. The pacing, both within and between songs, is top-notch. She has tracks and parts of songs that are so manic that they become nerve-wracking, but they're balanced with mellower work that functions as a kind of musical chaser. The last 3 songs in particular are a relaxing come-down.
Golden Fable - In the Aerie [folk/folktronica]
Very mellow folk and folk-influenced music. Lead singer has a beautiful, soothing soprano - a bit of rarity in contemporary popular music.
CHUCK - Frankenstein Songs for the Grocery Store [indie/twee pop]
Fun, uncomplicated indie pop with some funny lyrics to boot
Sunscreen - Just a Drop EP [indie rock]
Breezy and surf-rock influenced, but not so full-on in-your-face "surf rock" that it becomes grating. Just a drop of surf rock, if you will haha.

Gord Downie - Introduce Yerself
This guy was/is THE Canadian music icon for 30 years, and he died in 2017, too early. Our Prime Minster cried publicly. In the 1.5 years since his diagnosis was announced, he released a final Tragically Hip album, plus a solo album that addressed aboriginal issues (mainly the residential schools system) and brought the discussion into the public eye more than anything really has - and then he released a double album of “goodbye” songs to his loved ones a week after his death. It’s a beautiful album, and my favorite track is Wolf’s Home.

I don't know how to link, but to be honest I was quite disappointed with artists that I once loved,
oh wonder for example, their first album was gold and then they became "mainstream" and lost touch with who they originally were. It's normal for groups to change their style but it disappointed.
Then on the flip side an artist "Cosmo Sheldrake" released his first single in about 3 years named 'come along' now that and his upcoming album both seem to be exactly his music and how he performs. If it counts 'egg and soldiers' by him was released in 2018 and is a banger as well.
Lullatones released their album comprised of 52 songs, named thinking about Thursdays where every week they would make a new sound and at the end of the year release every sound made. If your in the mood for childish/playful lullabies/instrumental music check them out
