Priests 'Nothing Feels Natural' is a great record.

Re: 2017 mid-way best records lists

The Outro Tempo - Electronic and Contemporary Music from Brazil comp is sweet. And the Lovin Mighty Fire comp - all 80s gold from Japan. Also shout out to nice drone from Bing and Ruth. Ain't heard too much else, bit out the loop!

Reissue wise - Like that Ahmad Jamal trio lp. Smooooooooooth. And the Oluko Imo 'Praise jah' 12".

Dance - liking new 12"s by Lauer, Objekt and Black Bones.

Indie wise - new Shins and Jens Lekman both nice.

Heard the new Gas like 5 times and it still hasn't really "dropped" - need to give it 20 more spins...

I really like the new Cloud Nothings LP, though they were in such a bad mood when they toured it almost ruined it
