General / Re: Best albums of 2017?

You might hate this, but it's alot like the front bottoms and I dig it.

Now Jesse from Brand new. Just got Science Fiction in the mail too. That makes three albums I have purchased this year and later regretted once past actions of the creator have come to light.

Every day it's someone new it seems. While there are different levels to how shitty people are Weinsteins/Cosby obviously worse then CK's and Kevin Spacey is somewhere in the middle, but it doesn't make what CK did any less shitty.

Oh and since you all seem to like the front bottoms, here's a band that sounds a ton like them.

As far as sad and shitty news one of the guys from dear landlord is up on murder charges after selling dope to someone who overdosed. Supposedly he's the "Chris clavin of heroin" according to people on facebook. Whatever the fuck that means. Pretty sad for him and the victims family
Yeah I don't know what's that means either but that sucks. I read the google document where people have shared their stories and my first thought was that Chris is the Bill Cosby of folk punk.

I wish Kimya Dawson would have said something earlier. I understand that a lot of people are/were scared because of Chris's social status but Dawson became much more well known than Chris as time went on. I know hindsight is 20/20 and all and I'm not wanting to sound critical of her this all just sucks so much. I really wish there would have been an intervention earlier so he could've gotten help earlier but at least he's doing that now (hopefully) and the victims can start working through it now too. I would think having Chris coming to their towns now and then would be a huge trigger previously and it would suck to know that your abuser is still out seemingly unchecked.

I'm still confused, didn't Paul say something earlier and got ostracized from the community because of it? Not that that happening to Paul means Kimya shouldn't have also said something, but I spent a few years now thinking Paul was an awful person for some vague unknown reason and now I feel pretty awful knowing that a large part of that may have been me just taking faith in the wrong people and believing them when they said he fucked up.

Basically a week or so later and I still feel horrible about this. I was just starting to come to terms with the PWR BTTM situation and now I get to hate more of my hero's.

PS: Not trying to make this all about me, just trying to make sense of it all.

I'm having a hard time getting into that new front bottoms song.

Still looking forward to the new album though.

Since I never got the full story on Paul B was this all part of the reason he left pix and the Bloomington scene? From comments of his on FB he seems pretty adiment about knowing about all this and having taken a stand several years back, but no one being on his side when he tried to do something about it.

Or are the two things completely unrelated?

and cause all I seem to listen to is emo music these days, the new Brand New album is actually really good.

Chris (founder of PIX) is getting accused of some pretty serious stuff. Serious enough where Ghost Mice have canceled their tour.

Apparently punks really aren't that much better than anybody else.

The new alien movie was good, then again I also liked Prometheus a lot which people seem to hate, so maybe I'm not a good judge.

It's a joke that he is hoping someone calls his bluff on.

I'd buy it for $10k though, like he always said, if it ain't cheap it ain't punk.
What would you do with it if you bought it?

Really don't know what that means for whoever would buy it. $100,000 makes you the new owner though.

Who's in???

The show was awesome.

Whelmed from bloomington who had Ginger (good luck/one reason) on drums, opened and they were also fantastic.

I also realized I'm getting to old to stay out until 2 am at a show on a weeknight and then try to go to work at 7 the next day.

It's tonight, so I am not sure, but I totally understand you thinking it was last night since I posted this at 8 in the morning.

PS: yes keep listening to them, all the time if possible.

I could take or leave all grunge music. I don't hate it, but I have never once tried to seek it out.

Guilty pleasure time. I have been turning on the radio in my car searching for this song over the last week. Feel a little embarrassed by that fact, but clearly not enough to where I don't want to share it with the world.

Alright, ALOT has happened since I first posted this.

Instead of it being very vague and confusing. It is now very serious and sad.

They were one of my favorite bands at this time last week. Such a sad thing to have happen again and again, but especially this time with it being who I thought were a trans/queer empowerment band.

Kudos to the majority of people associated with the band (minus the main two members) for how they have handled it though.
