Though it's a pretty solid work of modern psych, Smote Reverser isn't the wall-to-wall excitement that Oh Sees' last few albums have been.
The debut album from this Melbourne supergroup is rife with wry political commentary and colorful post-punk arrangements.
Sometimes cumbersome but mostly exciting, Ty Segall's latest album is his longest and most ambitious yet.
Though not stylistically consistent, Gumboot Soup is one of the strongest batches of songs King Gizzard put out in 2017.
King Gizzard has released a proggy new album into the public domain, and it's perhaps the band's most holistic and ambitious effort this year.
King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard seem to have their fourth album of 2017 locked and loaded, and while I haven't been particularly impressed by the past two releases, this latest single has got my mouth watering.

(Thee) Oh Sees is a well-oiled psych rock machine on Orc.
