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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  1.  The Thermals
  2. Cheap girls
  3. The Dresden Files book series. I’m currently on book 8, Proven Guilty.
  4. WWE NXT.  I mean, seriously. Best roster anywhere.  Nakamura, Aries, Samoa Joe, Balor. Great all around, and so much damn fun.
  5.  Dr. Who.  I’m currently watching the main series and all of the side series on Amazon Prime, using this guide.
  6.  Sex Criminals – It’s awesome, trust me.
  7. Anything involving Jon Snodgrass.

This is the best new band I’ve found in years. I’m not sure why, but something about their music just clicked with me. It’s been about the only thing I’ve wanted to listen to for months now. That hasn’t happened in a very long time. As I get older, as is common, I find myself having a hard time getting excited about new music the way that I used to, except for new releases from my old favorites, so to come across something new that I love like this is a great feeling. The last band this happened with was Future of the Left, and I still love them too.
