Damn, I'd take Channel Orange/Blonde over anything Miguel's done. I also really like Miguel! I don't know why I'm so into comparing today. fucking whatever

May 19, 2017 on Zane Lowe Is Teasing An Insane List Of Guests For New Vince Staples Album
All interesting points! I wasn't aware of the fervor surrounding Summertime. I mean, I love that album, but I wouldn't have assumed it to be considered on Kendy's level. But yeah, I agree with dg15 ultimately...I'm more interested in who might become the next commercial and critical success, a title I'm awarding Kenny for the time being. Earl though? What a wordsmith. I feel like if he steps it up he's a viable contender. Clearly I'm rooting for him lol, despite the fact that just after he arrived home from Samoa I saw him in the backseat of a car driving next to me and he flipped me off.

I was actually just having a related conversation with a friend recently...we were wondering who could potentially usurp Kendrick's throne in the next few years. As far as I can tell, Kendy is indisputably #1, but I think Vince is a compelling rival. Also Earl if he can stop sleeping through his tracks. I love Earl's music, but like, man I just want to hear him go super hard on an album. I know the guy's destined for greatness. Anyways, thoughts?

Yeah....this one was kind of a standard "indie rock" song. I thought the last one was impressive! Nothing's hitting the Grizzly Bear high so far though.

Ah! I know Chyrum. I'm good friends with his brother Zak. Didn't know he was doing this! His artwork for Ought's last album is fantastic.

Don't get me wrong. It's annoying as hell it's not available for purchase. Also I don't have the data to stream a goddamn video of Frank building a staircase any time I want to listen to "Rushes" or his perfect Isley Brothers cover.

May 17, 2017 on Frank Ocean – “Biking (Solo)”
I'm assuming you want to physically buy it, but if you're looking to at least have an audio copy to listen to it's not very hard to find out there. I listen to "Endless" almost every day - tracks split up, titled, and all that jazz. It's fantastic.

Oh goddamn I misread your initial post. I thought the last head had to be an album coming out this year (announced). This is only indie rock right (whatever that means)? If so, mine: Joanna Newsom, Destroyer, Bill Callahan, Frank Ocean. Yeah that's fucking right I'm saying Frank Ocean is indie rock.

This is all such a bummer. Although I remember when the shift started...around 08-10. Also, I usually don't want to proliferate negative vibes around here, but I've been reading some positive reviews of the new Lana track, and I'm sort of confused...did she not just put into melody the most basic realization that horrible shit is happening all the time while most people blissfully and ignorantly go about their lives? Even more upsetting, it's coming from a presumably cis, rich, white person. Ugh. Song's catchy though.

May 15, 2017 on Vince Staples’ New Album Big Fish Theory Might Be Out On Friday
This is a serious question: who even goes to Coachella anymore? Like yeah, celebrities and all that I get, but what's the general demographic? I don't know a single person who goes anymore. Is the answer as boring as I think it is, that I'm getting older? Is it all just teens/young 20s there? Sincerely wondering.

They certainly are. I think all three reasons you mentioned factor into the hatred. The only that irked me was their lackluster live performances (especially given their hype), buuuuuuuut ^^^^^^^^^ now proves me wrong.

Seriously tight. It looks like they can feel it too! I've seen them several times, pre and post "Days Gone By," and by far this is the best performance I've witnessed. Danielle's voice is A+. She seems confident and laid back. Maybe they're not solely privileged studio creations after all!

Hah! How funny, I work for UCSF. I also take Muni, which is terrifyingly slow, terrifying, and also terrifyingly interesting. And long as fuck to get anywhere. Damn, sorry to hear about your parking situation. Parking in the Bay Area is essentially worth a salary.

OMG. Is anyone else freaking out over how goddamn good "Little of Your Love" is? Also, Danielle Haim is an absolute badass. ALSO they stepped up their live game!? Not even a huge Haim fan, but this is seriously convincing.
