Queen Moo mix unique songwriting (look at these structures!) with creative musics (listen to those chord progressions!), delivered with Jason & Kevin's distinct voices that sound sort of like The Strokes doing emo with a cigarette between their teeth. Some epic guitar solos, some amazing sing alongs, a great record. Queen Moo Forever.
Pinegrove are perhaps the best band around in 2016 (other than Pile), and certainly an all time-great set of songs. I might prefer Cardinal more, but everything they've ever done is, at a minimum, solid, and usually great.
