Wolf Alice is my favorite band and VOAL is overall a better album than MLIC imo, MLIC is not that perfect as people think and VOAL isn’t that mediocre anyways mother nature bless Ellie Rowsell and the guys

Poor jake bugg his best album yet but people ignore him bc he’s not that bluesy rebel cute-but-serious kid anymore

Also, agent bla and Zola Blood aren’t that popular so if you love noisy indie be sure to check them out

Ecclectic Carolyn says:

I’m pretty sure I’m the oldest person here but I think you did a great job.
You helped me find my way to new music. I have a wide avenue of music
I like (I go waaay back; Concrete Blonde, Sarah McLaughlin, Cowboy Junkies,
yeah I go way back). I just know music I feel really deserves it and Harry Styles
is high on that list. Great lyrics, sonically superior and a voice that cannot be denied.
Once again your list was stellar.
