A bit different to the usual indie-folk I post here, WHIM just released her debut EP and I'm super into it. It's got a Holly Herndon / Flying Lotus / FKA Twigs sort of feel to it.

Here's the single, but the whole EP is worth your time for sure.

I've seen CHVRCHES live four times nad every time has been slightly worse than the time previous, and it isn't the band its the crowds. I don't know what happened at album three but it seemed like they got a lot of new fans who didn't listen to anything but that album and thus are absolutely dead for all the stuff before that. Likewise the venues got progressively bigger but the atmosphere got worse.

The first time I saw them was kinda cute, they played Fader Fort at SXSW and didn't have enough music to fill a 45 min set. Most recently saw them at ACL festival and the crowd was basically :tootzzz:

Diggin the new HAIM and it's definitely their best alb so far, though it kinda feels like it's been overshadowed by so much other good music - big testament to how many high quality have dropped so far this year

I've only seen HAIM at festivals and I like them, though this release feels like they got overshadowed by a lot of other really good music coming out at the same time

On that note, it's a drat shame nobody is talking about Jessie Ware and Lianne La Havas both releasing excellent new albums

I do like Phoebe, but all that sad girl rock (Lucy Dacus, Soccer Mommy, Julien Baker etc) is starting to sound same samey to me to where I'm getting turned off on it

I actually came here just now to discuss just this. Where are all the fun new rock bands these days? I know that rock as a genre isn't really being highlighted by the mainstream anymore these days, and the ones that are heralded by places like pitchfork and NPR are just kind of, sad sounding, despite how good they are.

That's also why I really like: Black Midi, The Beths, Charly Bliss, Fontaines DC, White Reaper, and CHAI more than most of the sad girl sound that is really popular lately

My fave albums (tbh feels like I listened to a tremendous amount of good music this year)

I hate that I still haven't seen tricot live and they're def my favorite band now - their albums somehow just keep getting better. My list goes through a bunch of genres: math/indie rock, pop, italopop, r&b/jungle, ambient, funk

tricot - 真っ黒 (makkuro)
tricot - 10
Il Quadro Di Troisi - Il Quadro Di Troisi
The Beths - Jump Rope Gazers
Machinedrum - A View of U
Carly Rae Jepsen - Dedicated Side B
Julianna Barwick - Healing is a Miracle
Jessy Lanza - All The Time
Jessie Ware - What's Your Pleasure **sleeper hit of the year, often overlooked imo**
Khruangbin - Mordechai

She was with [producer] Jimmy Edgar, and they had just gone to Disneyland. She popped up at the studio randomly in Mickey Mouse ears and a leather jacket on. It was 100 degrees outside — that’s the type of poo poo she does. Jimmy played “745,” and Sophie grabbed a water bottle and left.

I asked this thread last year for new rock recommendations to get out of the glut of sad girl indie rock, and I seem to remember that I mostly got recommendations for punk bands, which isn't really my jam. Might as well ask again. Anyone have any recommendations for fun bands with the energy and sound of Broken Social Scene or New Pornographers? It seems like sad girl indie rock is the only thing that is making waves in the indie rock scene these days, and it's hard to find anything else worth listening to. I did finally jump on the Tame Impala train lately, about a decade late.

Remember suggesting you some stuff, uhh try Illuminati Hotties or Khruangbin

I could only ever really dig the first CHVRCHES album. They've gotten progressively more saccharine with each release since then.

My thoughts exactly - the Death Stranding track had me thinking they would improve on what made them awesome back then, but bummed about getting a bland track that copies top 40 production from a decade ago
