    The last two years I have done a new music thread.

    2016 New Releases

    2015 New Releases

    I did this is response to threads where it was suggested that it's hard to find new music today or that most new music was not as good as new music of the past was. The format was such that I and most the contributors did a brief review and rating of new releases.

    This proved to be a lot of work and that seemed to limit the input.

    So this year, I am going to go with a simple 2017 spin list. This let's everyone know what is new and being listened to without the demand of reviewing and rating it.

    I am, sure all contributors, as in all the spin threads, will be happy to share their opinions if asked.

    Hope this helps people find great new music!

    I discovered a bunch of new to me 2016 releases on the various best of 2016 lists, but I have yet to hear or play anything released this year.

    BTW, thanks for doing this threads. Great source.

    Brian Eno ~ Reflection
    Warp Records (1 Jan 2017)

    Eno working in pure ambient mode, not the song/ambient hybrid he used for his The Ship album last year.
    I bought the double LP version, but the included download is a single 52 minute track.
    There's also a $40 "generative" version that is an iOS/Apple TV app.

    Eno: “This music would unfold differently all the time–‘like sitting by a river’: it’s always the same river, but it’s always changing.”

    Good post, I have this on the way.

    I like the idea of a one song format.

    I just got this from DC today and only had a chance to play it through once, but I really like it. I can't fathom how this guy puts out nearly an album a year, and not one a dud. A few of the tracks were meh, but the majority of this is great. Songs range from almost dead-style jams to near-ballads to psych garage. It's a very unique mix and, well, very Ty Segall. I read another review which gave this an 8/10 and I'd have to agree. Not his best, but if this is his worst, it's still great. Now, when will he release his next album? :)

    I miss The Shins before James Mercer turned them into "James Mercer and the disposable support"

    After "Wincing the Night Away", they weren't the same (literally).

    I agree...I do hope that he can reacquire the sound of the first albums, but I do not know if that's possible.
