Ian here:

Hello everyone! I don't always use the Ian Hates Blog, but when I do, you know it's going to be important! I hope all of you got a chance to listen to the Anniversary shows for this year! Obviously, I said "shows" because the show was so big I had to split it into parts! Tonight, I'm here to talk to you about Part 2 when Grey Sorenson of Charlatan showed up and knocked it out of the park!

We started talking music (as we're known to do), and Grey went into everything he had been listening to in 2017 and let me tell you, it's an eclectic mix! He had so many, that a lot of people asked for a list and that's exactly what I've done. Also, note, these aren't only albums that came out in 2017, they're albums Grey discovered for the first time (or re-discovered)! 

Without further ado, here they are:

Artist - Album/EP

  • Regina Spektor - Begin To Hope

  • '68 - Two Parts Viper

  • Bent Knee - Land Animal

  • Charlatan - Remarkable

  • Code Orange - Forever

  • Pink Floyd - The Wall

  • Enter Shikari - The Spark

  • Every Time I Die - Low Teens

  • Far From Alaska - Unlikely

  • Greta Van Fleet - Black Smoke Rising

  • Highly Suspect - The Boy Who Died Wolf

  • Man Man - Rabbitt Habits

  • Incubus - 8

  • The Taxpayers - "God, Forgive These Bastards"...
