I've been listening to the traditional end of the year-list on Dutch Radio. Started in 1999 as the Top 2000 (y'know because the end of the millenium etc.), but has since become a yearly tradition. People can vote on their 15 favorites from a selected list (all songs that have been in the list at some point in time) and 10 free choices. Around 2,5 million people vote every year. From christmas day to the last minute of the year the list is played on a Dutch radio station.

Do you mean: with the new album and their sound? Or at all? (Maybe it's better to discuss it in the Mutemath thread)

Currently re-discovered this one, remembered it's one of my all-time favorite songs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3eszRcYdf08

This is the best album of 2016 for me so far. All of you should listen to it.

New 311 is nice. I'm feeling it.

If you get a chance to see them Tingky, ever, do it. They are incredible live. Saw them seven times, but that's not really hard in the Netherlands.

I'd still have to familiarize myself with their catalog, assuming they'd ever end up on this side of the planet.

Their last album, O, was killer. One.of my favorites from 2016.

Paramore just dropped a new video:
https://youtu.be/AEB6ibtdPZc

At first I was like "great, even more poppier than Ain't It Fun", but as the song went on, I realized I actually like it a lot. It kind of reminded me of Jamiroquai at times. They're also channeling Daft Punk via the vocoder at one point. Cons - I feel this song is only for radio and won't translate well live.

It's also good to see their original drummer back, and making adjustments to his drumming (he usually hits really hard).

I saw that song pop up and it reminded me of the Ting Tings. The guitar is very Foals-like.

Listened to it again and this feels like a very Linkin Park-move. Going full on for the commercial pop-sound.

Their S/T kind of already suggested the direction this band was headed. Still, this song may be pop, but I haven't heard anything like this in the mainstream lately, nor does it sound like it's following some trend. The closest song I could think of that sounds like this is Daft Punk's "Get Lucky". Overall, I think it was executed nicely.

As for that Linkin Park song, they completely homogenized themselves into the sea of mainstream electronica you could barely tell it's them, even succumbing to the trend of featuring female vocalists to further augment the song's poppiness.

Oh yeah, its nowhere near as bad as the Linkin Park-song. Have you heard the one that was released last week, the rap-one? It was so bad.
