Exactly. Although it truly seems the Music forum is dead.

Forums in general are places where sections like this one are not so crowded.

But for the few people who use them they're great.

I'd like to share something but during the last 2 months I hadn't the time to listen to new albums (I have nearly 40 albums in queue :lol:).

 

In this 2016 I discovered some new genres that I'm starting to love like chillhop, I've been digging into vaporwave since last year (and I discovered it here), so the "to-listen list" keeps growing :D

 

My favourite 2016 albums so far are (in no particilar order):

Wild Nothing - Life Of Pause

Daughter - Not To Disappear

M83 - Junk

Solar Bears - Advancement

James Blake - The Colour In Anything

Richard Ashcroft - These People

I Cani - Aurora

Hammock - Everything And Nothing

Bibio - A Mineral Love

Radiohead - A Moon Shaped Pool

Explosions In The Sky - The Wilderness

Various Artists - Hardvapour

The Jezabels - Synthia

Suede - Night Thoughts

There used to be a small, but still fairly active number of users in the Music forum. Now it's like a ghost town which is disappointing.

 

Speaking of vaporwave, surely you must have listed to 2 8 1 4 - 新しい日の誕生 (Birth of a New Day)?

To be fair, I already listened to it during last winter. Now they announced a new album and I'm quite excited to hear it.

Birth of a new day is very good, for some reasons it reminds me of Vangelis' Blade Runner soundtrack (also the artwork). Recover (the last song) it's one of the best songs I heard recently
