I guess, but DFA1979 is just about as pop punk as LCD Soundsystem, but that's just in my opinion.

Plus their new album wasn't even all that great anyways compared to their debut.

So fucking what? Go cry some more about how punk rock's "aesthetics" have been pretty much dead for the past 30 years.

With that being said, I'm not really a big fan of pop punk either (and most of the stuff that comes out of it nowadays is cringeworthy as fuck), but the Hotelier is probably the only band I'll say that I can really enjoy out of the whole genre.

>>
>>51591856
didn't know that but he certainly worked on the album

anyways it's not *exactly* post rock. just listen to this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m-m1NxD_V3E and tell me that's the work of a shitty GYBE or sigur ros knockoff

This is interesting to me, but Wash The Sins Not Only The Face was not good.
Like, very not good. Two good songs at best.
I'm gonna need more selling than that.
>>
>>51582937
Say what you want about Le Goofball (and I certainly think his antics are pretty stupid/immature, etc.) but people that write his music off because of that are really missing out. This is one of the best 'guitar' albums of the year. Listen to the subtlety of his playing. He ties every single lick with a pretty bow, lets the open strings ring out, bends and holds the notes. This guy is one of the best rhythm guitar players in indie music right now, and it's a real shame he's only really known for having bad teeth and wearing shitty clothes.
>>
>>51591892
Oh, this is good. Don't really see anything that says "post rock" immediatly, but it does have some GY!BE-ish vibes. Lovely vocals. Thanks for pointing me in their direction.
>>
>>51592014
>Wash The Sins Not Only The Face
i've never listened to that. hell, i just discovered this band through this release. however, RYM seems to claim that A New Nature is a pretty great leap forward. again, i've never heard anything off Wash the sins but i'd expect it to be a bit different

>Don't really see anything that says "post rock" immediatly, but it does have some GY!BE-ish vibes

yeah i agree. it builds slowly (for a 4 minute pop song anyway), which is primarily why i referenced GYBE in the first place. but regardless, i'm glad you like it.

i think these are some of the best this year, but it does feel like a thin year

rtj2 is weaker than the original, asher roth is a wack mc, wiz is doing his thing - but still not at the top of his game, atmosphere is so backpack my lumbar explodes every time i see his name, apathy is so mediocre that i can't be angry about it

i liked some of this stuff, but none of it stuck out to me.

i would add the father's brawl ep to your img. one the better releases this year imo
