    The new album by the Cold War Kids, L.A. Divine, is tremendous. Every song is good but the standouts are "Can We Hang On?" "No Reason To Run" and "Part of the Night."

    Really excellent work from a band with a lot of skins on the wall. If you've heard any of their songs before it's probably "We Used to Vacation" from 2006, which is still a classic.

    New Minus The Bear is decent, if not altogether memorable.

    On Record Store Day, I got the first UGK album (first time on vinyl), U-Roy "Dread in a Babylon (reggae/dub classic), a Profile Records compilation of a bunch of their early singles (old-school hip-hop, lots I'd never heard before even as a kid in NYC), and a picture disc of Vangelis' music for Blade Runner. Oh, and a Smiths' 7" that has demo versions of "The Boy with a Thorn in his Side" and "Rubber Ring" that is now also notorious for a very political message etched in the run-out groove.
    I also bought some noisy stuff and hyper-political punk rock that would piss off most people here.

    Holy ****, Chester Bennington hung himself. I stopped listening to Linkin Park a long time ago, but they were definitely a part of my library as a teenager.

    Ha! I never claimed to represent a majority!

    Here's a good place to start. These guys were kicking around Austin back when I was in school.

    Love Turnpike and Jinks.

    For me, Chris Stapleton's sophomore album, From a Room: Volume 1, was one of the best of the year. [Even if you're not a country music fan, "I Was Wrong" is one of best new blues tracks in years.]

    I haven't yet checked out his third album, From a Room: Volume 2, which dropped a couple weeks ago.

    Saw Stapleton at ACL last year (2016) and he sounds identical to his records. Incredible talent, was one of my favorite shows there

    If your wife loves Christmas music as much as mine does (and blasts it on repeat), I suggest pointing them to Sia's new Christmas album. My wife is enjoying it, and its bearable to listen to for me.

    For those of y'all who stream your music, Def Leppard's entire catalog is now on Spotify. They said "worldwide" so I would assume this applies to Apple Music and Google as well
