ITT: Predict things that will happen in music in 2018

>Brockhampton will drop their worst album yet but people will hype the shit out of it and it will be placed at #4 on the RYM chart right behind another live album with 36 ratings thats 2 hours long and probably by some washed up prog rock band

>M83's album will actually be a let-down and despite the massive amount of attention it will get here people will come to hate it. It will get a 3.35 on RYM

>Kanye will not drop an album but rather a short mixtape that is influenced by Trap and is not as good as anything he has released this decade.

>Trap rap will get worse and worse before it becomes a massive joke following the second Lil Pump album. Lil Peep will posthumously have something come out and its score will get bumped higher than usual.

>It won't be a very good year for music in general
>>
>Oasis will reunite

I was on /mu/ linking to the old Kevin Abstract/Matt Champion/Romil streams they had before they got big.

The Justin Timberlake - Cry Me A River covers, pre-1987 Kevin, and even then /mu/ hated the fuck out of them.

Posted the Drugs video, all of Kevin's shit leading up to BH's first few releases and continued to get shitted on.

/mu/ is just a place where people who hate themselves but happen to listen to music come to interact with people.

I think the next Titus Andronicus will suck :(

The Best in New York single is dog shit and I don't think the rest of the songs will be great, but I'm definitely open to being wrong.

Mark Kozelek is releasing 3 fucking albums this year and I'm hoping that at least one of them is great. The Yellow Kitchen collaboration was utterly bizarre but I enjoyed it well enough. Common As Light was awesome, I dug his solo releases from 2017, the Jesu album was okay so I'm guessing the 2018 Jesu collab will be okay as well. I still haven't heard that album he did with the Dirty Three's Drummer though...Mark is unstoppable.

The change in lyrics and her being an Australian are precisely the reason it will get penned in some places.

>I’ve been writing on piano a lot. It’s darker and more melancholy, probably as a reflection on politics.
http://www.nme.com/news/music/courney-barnett-gives-update-on-new-album-2166523#sOOFEJcjj0th3zeO.99

>Barnett said she tries “to be a pessimistic optimist” about politics and that most of her new songs are “half-written”. Barnett said: “I’m really bad at decision making. For me, finishing a song takes so much more effort than starting one. I’ve got some good half-songs for the next record, and maybe they’ll turn into great full songs.”

I think (hope) she means the darker tone of the songs comes from the current state of politics rather than the lyrics specifically being political. In the line before she says "So far, the new songs are a general reflection on the meaning of life, our purpose for being here and all that rubbish". I can't imagine her writing overtly political lyrics, it just doesn't seem like it'd match her lyrical style very well. Hope I'm not wrong, I fucking loved the album she dropped with Kurt Vile earlier this year, and am eagerly waiting this new one

Brockhampton obviously takes inspiration from Odd Future, but where Odd Future was messy and inconsistent, Brockhampton is cohesive. The members work together on tracks a lot better than OF and each one pulls their weight. In OF there was like 3 members who clearly surpassed the rest.

If you haven't heard Jen Coher before, she has a very similar sound in her later albums with lyrics that are sort of CB-esque in that clever self-deprecating way, but somewhat more mature that often deal with politics, not limited to AU. My feeling (worry) is that Courtney might have a go at this, but it could be at a bad time when she ain't got quite the elegance to pull it off yet, and the anti-Trump hype has already passed its peak.

Maybe you'll be right though.

Dam, didn't realize Jen Cloher made stuff that wasn't super acoustic singer/songwriter-esque. Honestly I saw her open for CB&KV on their tour and thought it was some of the most generic shit I'd ever heard (my roommate whom I went with thought the same), but it was probably because she was just doing an acoustic set by herself and I don't really listen to lyrics much on the first listen. Got an album you'd rec from her?

Crossing my fingers that CB takes her time and still delivers lyrically, rather than rushing out new material in attempt to stay relevant or something.
