I'm getting better and better at immediately discriminating between Billboard/Hollywood Reporter and Stereogum articles based on the headline titles these days.

I'm getting super impatient with this leak now. I feel like there must be at least one obligatory "where's the leak" comment for every TWOD post.

Totally feeling you. From these 30 second clips (lol), I can tell it's gonna be a VERY cohesive album in the vein of Kaputt. I mean of course nothing will ever be as good as Kaputt, one of the best albums of the decade hands down. Fucking Bay of Pigs.

I'm 99% sure J Tillman, Win Butler, and James Murphy are in the same book club.

Anyone else do a double take when Vince said "penis" on one of the songs?

YBB, "Not of this World" is also down in SoCal. I grew up down there and knew MANY parents with those stickers on their damn cars. I also saw "No Bad Days" quite often, which at the time pissed me off because as a young lad I felt like I was ONLY HAVING BAD DAYS.

Yeah when you get Tom goin' on something, he can really GO there. I remember that thread being pretty contentious...RJ and I were salivating if my memory serves me well/way too lazy to go look at the thread.

I sincerely hope Ariel can just be weird and goofy and NOT say weird misogynistic stuff. Pom Pom was so good and I feel like he fucked himself with all that other shit.

THIS IS SO GOOD. Pom Pom was a masterpiece IMO, but I'm digging this sort of return to Before Today vibe. I feel like this next album is gonna rule.

Well Mr. Beans, we seem to have a very similar taste in music if my memory serves me well, so I'll consider this another solid upvote for this album! Kamasi is just the best. Saw him play a 3 hour set a couple years back. Beautiful stuff....AND probably seeing him play at a winery in another month!!!

OMG thank goodness someone addressed this. I saw these "4:44" ads all over NYmag two days ago, did a cursory google search and NOTHING SHOWED UP. The only thing I read was that some people see "4:44" when they're receiving divine messages from a higher realm. I'm not religious, but I am highly paranoid, so naturally I spent yesterday thinking I was the chosen one.

June 6, 2017 on Are Tidal’s 4:44 Ads Promoting A New Jay Z Album?
Oh, I'd add Future Islands why not. Also, Mount Eerie....I haven't been able to get through the whole album (too personal right now), but I'm sure it'd be high up there.

YES. We need more ambient. On that note, Narkopop is so goddamn good. This is a loose association with ambient, but that new Bing & Ruth album is spectacular as well. I have to give the other site credit for doing a decent job of reppin' some more ambient/experimental stuff.

Yay! Great sign. I've probably said this for every AF single, but I'm getting some strong Bowie vibes. Also, not sure if you'll ever see my comment buried under the SOTY discussion in the TWOD thread, but your "SEE YOU TOMORROW" playlist is gettin' me through the day. Beautifully curated.

June 1, 2017 on Arcade Fire – “Everything Now” Video
Agreed all around. "Thinking of a Place" is a masterpiece. Those Neil Young harmonica vibes at the end....oof. I had a nice sunset drive this week with it on repeat. Also RJ: I don't usually listen to other people's playlists on Spotify (my to-listen-to music list is fucked), but for some reason I checked out your "SEE YOU TOMORROW" playlist and not only is it so so good, but it's been the perfect soundtrack all morning for studying standardized testing material to go back to schoooooooool. Great mix!
