When did this place get so snarky? It’s kind of off-putting.
You guys can’t be talking winter albums without mentioning Burial. Rival Dealer soundtracked all of last winter for me, and it was unbelievable. Especially late at night. That thing is spacious and sad and gorgeous and brings me down and lifts me up all at once. Plus, it’s slightly lovably cheesy, and even a little Christmas-y? It’s fall now, and I’m still talking about it in person to people who really, really don’t care.
I don’t know about you guys, but I kinda wish internet music review culture could slow down a little bit. It’s not even been a full two days (!) since anyone has heard this thing, and we’re already getting Rolling Stone singing its praises and Stereogum doing the opposite, among countless others. It just feels like a race to the bottom, filled with immediate, visceral reactions that don’t do much other than satisfy people’s need to have heard of them first.
Now excuse me while I wait impatiently for year-end list season to start, because mine’s already put together
I’m the biggest U2 fan I know, and I’m over the fuckin’ moon about this new album, but let’s talk about this iPod Classic discontinuation. And by talk, I mean ask What the hell am I supposed to do when my 160gb Classic dies? I’m pretty not happy about this news.
At this point, I know what I’m going to get when I click on a deadmau5 “where’s the beef”, and I know that I won’t really enjoy it, but I can’t stop. The guy’s an immature ass, but at the same time, I keep giving this nonsense page views…
My only complaint is that try as I might, I can’t get myself to see the I in the cool red VOIDZ logo. Looks like a fanged hyphen at best.
I’m actually really impressed with this. I don’t care a whole lot about the Strokes, but this has just enough weird stirred into it that I can get behind it. My Voidz passing interest is now a genuine anticipation, and I’m looking forward to hearing this one on a walk at night sometime soon.
I’d be all for that just because jazz as a genre is big and scary and I have no idea where to jump in
Pretty sure he didn’t tour with them, so he’s not in it
It’s just not the same…
