Semler – Star Shopping

It's a queer Christian singer-songwriter doing a cover of a Lil Peep classic!

Honestly, Semler is the most interesting sorry I'm music so far this year for me. She recently put out a new EP called "Preacher's Kid" and labeled it as a Christian EP (it very much is exactly that), and then through word of mouth and a couple of very strategic retweets, got enough listeners to unseat the mighty Lauren Daigle at #1 on iTunes, if only for a little while.

The EP itself is an amazing companion to anyone who felt a little out of place in 90s youth group culture. "Jesus From Texas" is the heavy hitter and obvious standout (and would absolutely be the video here if a live version existed), but the whole thing straddles the line between (very) righteous indignation and hopeful belief in such a way that it lit a fire in me that I thought was long since extinguished. Great stuff.

Smashing Pumpkins – Cherub Rock

Smashing Pumpkins are really a one album band for me -- but what an album. Easily top 5 for me. There's nothing even approaching weak song on it, and when it's REALLY firing on all cylinders...

Best album opener ever? It's in the mix for me.

Coachwhips – Hands on the Controls

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GKeFTOo4NlY

The video doesn't seem keen to embed for some reason?

I'm not always in the mood for Coachwhips, but when I want twenty minutes of maximum volume, redline, speaker blowing scuzz, they might just be the greatest band ever.

Looks like they put on an....intimate live show, too.

…and you will know us by the trail of dead – into the godless void

It can be...difficult to find proper ToD live clips, since their lead singer can be a bit grating. This one is pretty good, though (different lead singer!), and the new album is really solid all the way through.

I thought these guys were on their last legs a few years ago, but they keep going strong.

Duel of the Fates

Newbish has decided that Star Wars music is the best music (he's also a big fan of Klendathu Drop and Basil Poledouris' music, but the live renditions of that on YouTube left something to be desired). After a few months of this, John Williams is my most played artist on Spotify -- ever.

I don't mind listening to cinematic orchestra music, though -- it beats Imagine Dragons. I've always enjoyed my fair share of soundtrack music, and having him get into it is fun.

As a bonus, the conductor here is VERY entertaining to watch.
