We mentioned in episode 06 of Views From The 405 just how many great albums seem to get released around the October/November point, and 2017 is no different. We discuss a handful of the last contenders for your albums of the year list, including St. Vincent's MASSEDUCTION, King Krule's The OOZ, Fever Ray's Plunge, Julien Baker's Turn Out The Lights, James Holden's The Animal Spirits and Converge's The Dusk In Us, with a brief mention for a few other great releases from recent weeks.

We also celebrate the 10th anniversary of the release of Burial's Untrue by having a retroactive look at it, largely informed by Simon Reynolds' excellent piece on Pitchfork 'Why Burial’s Untrue Is the Most Important Electronic Album of the Century So Far'. We also talk about Mitski's inciteful review of Weezer's new album Pacific Daydream 'Watch Me Unravel: Weezer, Youth, and Pop Songwriting' on The Talkhouse.

Finally we finish with a little discussion of Eimar McBride's wonderful novel The Lesser Bohemians.
