I know we’re only two months deep in 2017 so far, but there have been three outstanding albums that have come out this year that I feel like I need to let every one know about.
- Cloud Nothings -” Life Without Sound” The last two Cloud Nothings albums were absolutely killer, and this one is no exception. I was hooked about a minute into the first track.
Japandroids – “Near To The Wild Heart Of Life” I will admit that the first Japandroids album, “Post-Nothing” didn’t really grab me, but I’ll be damned if their follow up, “Celebration Rock”, wasn’t absolutely fantastic, and this was the perfect follow up.
- Scorpios – One Week Record I never thought we’d get a new Scorpios album, due to the death of one of the founding members, Tony Sly, but surprise, 2017 has brought us a One Week Record and I couldn’t be more stoked. It’s just what I needed. Do yourself a favor, and just buy the entire One Week Record’s catalog, which can currently be purchased for $20 when you sign up for a free membership. It’s totally worth is.
I don’t know what the rest of 2017 will bring musically, but I’m pretty sure if these are the only albums I dig that come out this year, I’ll still be happy.
