Your top _____ of 2018


When/where are you playing in portland?


Dont forget This is not This Heat


The Black Mirror soundtracks are equally fantastic in their own right. Geoff Barrow and Ben Salisbury make incredible music together and their soundtrack for Men Against Guns is amazing - one of my most played records of the year, along with their scores for Ex Machina and Annihilation.

That Body record is SO SICKKKK. Huge inspo this year. I just saw them play a collaborative set with Uniform. It was ok, but I really wanted to see a set more oriented toward those compositions and sounds. Heavy as fuck.


i have found that for me, the whole of the Louis Cole universe is pretty fantastic.


Smdh, where’s Youth Novel’s discography release???


sorry, but the objective truth is that kids see ghosts > daytona

daytona has a superior cover though


I’m sorry, but I already declared my list the objective truth, and since I did it first, it’s officially objective. That’s just science™.


cool maritime, earl sweatshirt, emily sprague

prolly all the best shows this year were at @LEAVING_RECORDS listen to music in the daylight under a tree but hey they happened on another coast so i’ll catch that vibe another time.

Austin is not a good city for live music, as it turns out. Although show of the year for me was probably Bitchin Bajas, the hierophant matthewdavid, botany, and limalo at the north door for aural canyon.


This on my list of albums I need to spend more time with.


i said it was hastily assembled! i totally forgot about that lol but it is a total banger


wait, holy shit thats louis cole? that…actually makes a lot of sense
