Sounds like a great show, @ArmandoPenblade! Would love to see Alcest, though yeah, I agree about The Body being too out there for me. Their album No One Deserves Happiness got a lot of praise last year, but I couldn’t even make it all the way through before turning it off.
Anyway, here’s another batch of the recent releases that I’ve particularly enjoyed. Oh, and I mentioned Beyond the Black and AfterTime in the symphonic discussion a while back, but they are also new releases that I’ve been listening to a lot of. And Undrask continues to be get a lot of listens – probably my favorite of the year so far.
