To me, it's basically Kid A with more raw blues aesthetics. I would also hope that more non-Anglo artists can rece...

Re: Albums of 2018

More people should check out this Hop Along album [Bark Your Head Off, Dog]. It's a mid-rocking rock album, female lead vocals. I liked it, but I think some of you might like it more, like the DocBrown-Jirin-type crowd.
