I don't know much about drumming from a technical standpoint, but if we're giving drummers their due, I'd just like to mention that Dave Turncrantz from Russian Circles has blown my mind every time I've seen them live.

Tim is slowly morphing into Alan Moore and Billie Joe into my great aunt Gladys.

No offense to Joshy, but I would stand him up if those were my options.

I would complain about the longish wait but a new CW record is a perfect fit for late September/fall in general.

Sir Lars von Ulrich, tragic hero who in the mythical tradition fights Napster, the many-headed Beast of Avarice, only to lose his soul by degrees.

There's political debate and there's being sanctimonious to a near-comical degree.

I love how it flows, the stream-of-consciousness-like feeling it evokes.

Easily the best Fleet Foxes record, as well as the first one with no real cringy moments. I'm enjoying it.

On one hand, this is borderline fraud. On the other hand, I thought the original article was pretty fucking stupid and worth making fun of.

June 5, 2017 on New Nine Inch Nails EP Coming This Summer
I actually really like their first two albums, but this is the most uneven thing they've put out so far IMO. It feels very unfocused. Some tracks are stately, intricate pieces that almost sound like they belong on the new fleet foxes record. Others are bland and forgettable, and some are outright grating. About half the tracks on the record sounds like B-sides or bonus tracks, including that inoffensive yet baffling house of the rising sun cover.

not sure I'd got that far but sure for good measure let's downvote an appeal to proper accreditation

May 19, 2017 on Watch Alex Lahey Cover Natalie Imbruglia’s “Torn”
Torn was written by members of the alternative rock band Ednaswap and has been recorded or covered as a pop song similar to Imbruglia's cover multiple times prior to her releasing it, but sure, I guess we're still crediting her for the song every time it's brought up these days.

doesn't it get old having to scrutinize your face for stray food residue after every snack? if I don't shave for a couple days I get a serious case of phantom crumb syndrome after every meal
