    This one always takes me back to being a tiny child.

    If we're talking physical, I have 0 k-pop albums, but 618 non-k-pop albums.


    Digital, idk. Most of the albums BTS and Twice released. A few others. Not many.


    I don't really buy physical albums unless I absolutely have to nowadays.

    Do you want sad or do you want depressing.


    I am one of the world's leading experts on the latter.


    For the former, I guess, as far as mainstream is concerned, this is really good:

    The EP it's on is great.


    Speaking of great, Phoebe Bridger's album last year got a lot of attention, but the one before it was even better. This song in particular:

    The lyrics are very Kozelek, but Phoebe didn't rape anybody, so that makes her better in every respect.


    This is fantastic if you can get past Gibbard's horrible voice:

    A really fantastic emerging artist is Skullcrusher. Every song she's released so far has been great, really, every single one, but this one is my favourite:

    Carissa's Wierd (and Jenn solo) have some of the best sad songs ever recorded, but many of them (especially Jenn's solo stuff) can teeter into the depressing territory which idk if you'd be into. But this is a stone-cold classic, and to think, they recorded it in the basement of Tool's former bassist lollol:

    For something a bit more unusual and mysterious, there's this evergreen piece of haunting, nostalgic ambiguity:

    Finally, there's...

    Okay, so, I have the demo version of Faunts' Gone With the Day. It leaked on the internet before the album came out. The album version is... Almost like a dub remix, it sounds all under-waterry and blurry, you can't actually make out the instruments, it's almost an ambient track. Whereas the demo has an alt-country vibe to it. It's literally one of my favourite ever songs in its original form, and, in 2021, I don't know if anyone else even has the demo version (I've looked in the usual places, and, like, nobody besides me seems to have it).

    So I'll upload it!

    Can't see what this is, but I assume it's Congratulations?

    That'd be one of mine, along with:

    Totally unique, flawless debuts, all three. Almost too good, tbh, and living up to them is a struggle. Definitely all three groups lost a lot of the original edge promised by their debuts. :(


    Oh and,
