The Weekly Music Thread Makes a Discovery

Let’s discuss any and all music here. Got a new artist who’s rocking your boat that you want to talk about? Post a video! Found out about that unearthed Coltrane album that has the jazz freak in you losing your mind? Lay it out for us! Have a theory about what your favorite band might do for their next album? Let’s hear it! Anything and everything music-related goes here.

This week’s discussion prompt: What is the best “new-to-you” music that you discovered in 2019 that was NOT released in 2019? 

Last year, I stumbled across this song from 2013 via a YouTube recommendation and subsequently became obsessed with it, to the point where I easily played it more than anything else in 2019.

This fan-made music video complements the song very well – I’m not particularly good as classifying music by genre, but Wikipedia has them as “neo-psychedelia” and “dream pop”, and both of those sound about right to me. The album the song appears on (Strange Pleasures) is available here – “The Trip” is probably the stand-out track, but if you like what you hear it’s definitely worth checking out.

Of course, any and all music-related topics are welcome. Have fun, and as always: rock out with yr guac out!
