Long time reader, infrequent commenter. Enjoy!

Real Estate: In Mind (Domino, 2017)
A new album from the new lineup of Real Estate...the East Coast's foremost purveyors of 'beach rock', if you will.

Available from Tidal

The Feelies: In Between (Bar None Records, 2017)
Remember The Feelies? They're still great and doing what they do best (which is all I ever really want of anyone).

Available from Tidal

Ganglians: Still Living (Omnian Music Group, 2011)
Lo-fi couch-rock with a heart.

Available from Tidal

Gang Gang Dance: Eye Contact (4AD, 2011)
A crucial turning point for the electrounit that I'm uncertain they've ever surpassed

Available from Tidal

XTC: Oranges & Lemons (Virgin, 1989)
'Mayor of Simpleton'...need I say more? If so, 'Chalkhills & Children', 'The Loving'...the band (and Partridge in particular) are in top form.

Available from Tidal

Strangefolk: Weightless In Water (Strangefolk Music, Inc., 2004)
Quite simply, the sound of Vermont (location of my alma mater) in 1997-2003.

Available from Tidal

Shellac: Dude Incredible (Touch and Go, 2014)
ALL THE SURVEYORS. Steve Albini is a world-class dick but he's an audio genius.

Available from Tidal

The Fixx: Reach the Beach (MCA Records, 1983)
The soundtrack of my parent's house in the early 1980s. Touchstone.

Available from Tidal

Dead Meadow: Shivering King and Others (Matador Records, 2003)
The commute to and from my first real post-college job. After about ten attempts at not ever getting a 'real job'.

Available from Tidal

Talking Heads: Talking Heads: 77 (Sire Records, 1977)
I'm probably not here to submit this 'Lovely Recordings' without my folks incessant enjoyment of this album in the late-1970s.

In Mind is the best new product to hit my system in sooo long... I absolutely love every song and it will be a permanent and perpetual mainstay in my life, maybe forever.

Pinning some to my Tidal favorites, and at least one I'm likely to look for my own copy. Thanks for the list.
