This Grey Hairs jawn might be the first great punk rock record of 2017.

Easy vote for Chicago duo Imelda Marcos, who just released their second album Dalawa a few days ago:

These guys are a joy to watch live, and this album is fantastic start-to-finish. One of the most inventive guitarists I've heard in a long time.

Technically came out December 12th, 2016, but I've been in love with this split 10" from two French-Swiss groups called Maraudeur and Purpur Spytt:

Although released in December, Mica Levi's score for Jackie is lovely and deserves some props:

If you like that, check out the first half of their previous EP.

I'm having a great time with Mark Eitzel's Hey Mr Ferryman.

A decidedly "adult-contempo" time, but still.
