It would be a tad obvious to mention that 2017 has been shaping up to be depressing year for many across the globe. Here are some new releases which can hopefully help to keep us sane in these trying times (sounded a bit like Frank Reynolds there for a second, no?) Also including some release predictions and hopefuls too!
Austra-Future Politics 1/ 20
Cate Le Bon -Rock Pool 1/27
Emma Ruth Rundle/ Jaye Jaye Split- The Time Between Us 2/24
King Woman- Created in the Image of Suffering 2/24
Xiu Xui-Forget 2/24

Caroline Polacheck- Announced Chairlift’s split and her desire to release solo records. Embarking on farewell tour. (Ramona Lisa revival or new persona?)
Just something that I kinda want to point out about silent hill 3 in particular. Okay. Vincent. He never once called Heather Alessa. He only ever referred to her as Heather. This is interesting because he mentions being witness to Claudia’s abuse as a child, and we know that Alessa thought of Claudia as a little sister. So we can guess that he knew Alessa when they were kids as well, before Harry came around and before Cheryl existed even too. This is relevant because he didn’t see Heather as another Alessa. He saw her as Heather, which is something Claudia didn’t. Claudia saw Heather as Alessa and usually called her Alessa.
Thinking about this again because I’m rewatching the play throughs by @askroahmmythril
I’ve been trying to analyze Vincent as a character and see what makes him such a fan favorite. I like him too of course, just trying to figure out what it is about him and all the other great characters in various fandoms.
