I don't know if this is the right thread for it, but I just heard Best Coast's "California Nights" (Song, not album) on the radio the other day. After listening to the album I don't mind it but specifically that song is just amazing. What other bands/songs should I listen to if that song is what I want in my life.
They toured with Wavves a few months ago (which I went to when they came through here and it was dope), so you might wanna check them out if you haven't heard them already.

I'll second this. Saw them a few months back when they hit MPLS, and it was a rocking show. They're incredibly gifted when it comes to songwriting. There's a YouTube video of a light set in Brooklyn that's amazing and I can listen to it for hours at a time.

I think there's a raw power and this self-lacerating earnestness to her delivery that you don't get from a lot of her peers. The instrumentation is folky but the delivery and songwriting is more Hop Along or Mitski than that parade of Lana Del Rey imitators doing "folksy breathy guitarrista" stuff. It's especially obvious on the live performances -- the album's production makes her sound a little more generic than she deserves. (The "Vessels" on the Spotify Session is so, so much better than the album version.)

Speaking of Mitski, her new album's great and she just keeps getting better.

I wouldn't say I dislike her, but I am not on the hype train as others are either. I'll listen to her stuff, but honestly her kind of music just gets me down too hard. I want up-beat fast paced rock/punk-rock when it comes to indie music.

There's a youtube of her playing a show with her local indie rock band and her vocals pretty much don't work at all, but I can't stop watching it because they're kinda cool and having so much gosh darn fun just playing for their friends.

It's definitely mood music, her first album. The music and message happen to resonate with me even without being wholly relatable, but I can obviously imagine something like that not being a universal reception.

I think a big chunk of my excitement comes from the potential I see. Early Torres is the common comp, and Mac Scott really evolved her sound on album #2 and if Julien evolves her sound (like the Elliott Smith cover with the harmonies makes me start to think), we could see the growth of a special new artist right before us.

I subscribe to the Australian radio show triple j where they have a band come through every friday and play a song of their own + a cover song and stumbled on this Australian artist Olympia I'd never heard of before playing a cover of Dreams by Beck (which wasn't bad). I ended up buying her album and it's really loving cool. She has a few youtube songs up as well but the full album is worth the 10 bucks after the first listen.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8BIxGE3Mca4 - Dreams cover

She's also got a youtube/vevo channel with a few songs but some are Aus only btw.

here is music I just saw and would like to tell you about :

I first saw Beverly open for TOPS last March and I saw em again headlining tonight and they're really good! They have a similar dream pop vibe but a little louder and more aggressive on some stuff, especially the unreleased stuff they played from their next record in May. I've probably talked this band up before in this thread but they just made a new video that is good

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hs2XJl12Wvw

Opening for them though I saw a new band called WALL that is awesome. They are not the German band called WALL on Bandcamp, which is confusing. They maybe should change their name? Anyway their new EP is on Soundcloud. I think the lead single, Cuban Cigars, is kind of bland and doesn't represent well them at all. The rest of their stuff is really good and some of the highest-strung post-punk I've heard. They remind me a lot of first-album DEVO with the distorted surf rock riffs, weird tempo changes, and paranoid and angry vocals

this is my fav song of theirs: https://soundcloud.com/wharf-cat-re...ingle-premieres

Who here just loves synthwave?

I'm serious, I can't get enough of this genre. It steeps itself in '80s nostalgia, science fiction, and is unapologetic about the cheesy nature of its aesthetic. It's not pretentious nor is it too silly.

Trevor Something, Gunship, Lazerhawk, Robots with Rayguns, Macross 82-99, Perturbator, Mitch Murder, this is just one good genre.

Synthwave is an awful, garbage genre.

A human heart posted:

Ideally it should be good, and also shouldn't rely entirely on obnoxious 80s nostalgia references. Like it's fairly obvious that none of these synthwave dudes care about actual 80s synth music, it's just empty signifiers.

Exactly. Its the copy pasta of the music world. It's a dead genre with zero innovation.

The Magnetic Fields are doing a new album and tour

Tickets go on sale for the LA show on Friday. Hopefully it's not contested and I can just mosey on the site and grab both nights. They're playing all 50 songs off their new album over two nights. I'm a little disappointed that since it's already such a huge show with a very clear objective that they won't play any of their old stuff, which happens to contain about 66% of my favorite songs of all time.

I'm sure it will be like 69. There will some stuff I don't enjoy, and some I'll love forever. I trust him.

Fifty new songs from my favorite band?! I did not see that coming at all. There's no way they'll play the garbage country in which I live nowadays but at least I got to see them in 2010, so that box is ticked.

Yeah the tour seems really small compared to the 2008 and 2010 tours, but it's early days. They're also bringing in a bunch of musicians to play all the random instruments Stephin's using as it's supposed to be a biographic album and a song for every year of his life. I wouldn't be surprised if some of the main band isn't around, but that might also be the reason why it's such a small tour so they can be all there but not commit to a huge tour.

I'm sure there will be videos here and there. Their concerts are relatively easy to film since they don't amplify the poo poo out of everything.

HEALTH in September. They made my favorite song of last year, and have the best use of vomit in a music video ever.

Crystal Castles in October. I saw them right after II was released and I'm interested to see how the new dynamic stacks up.

And then PUP in December. They've made the best song and music video of this year. So...yeah. I'm gonna get my scream on at that show for sure.

There's a bunch of post-rock bands in there as well, but that's for the other thread.

It looks like I'm going to Panorama this weekend during a heatwave. I won't complain because the tix were free.

I wonder how many people in attendance received comped tickets because practically every radio station/blog/vendor/sponsor was holding giveaways these past few weeks. It looks like tickets sold really poorly.
