Swandive - Standoff at a Yellow Light
NR
It's finally time! My band, Swandive's debut album is coming out March 11th. 8 songs, 46 minutes, a real time. Would appreciate anyone giving it a listen when it drops. New versions/mixes of every song, get stoked

Elder - Innate Passage

it’s cute bc you can really tell how much they love wanking around on guitars and it sounds like they’re having a great time but that’s about all the record has going for it. it’s a fun prog rock vibe though and as a guitar player it’s nice to hear all the fun things they’re doing
The Smashing Pumpkins - ATUM - Act I

The least edge the band has ever displayed on a record. Feels more like a Billy Corgan solo project, sounding more like a Halsey or War On Drugs record rather than a Smashing Pumpkins one. (i would rather listen to halsey)
The 1975 - She's American

Suicide I've never really got into too much though I appreciate their importance - I own the first two albums on CD from way back but even then I didn't play them too much.
