Every time I see that Menzingers title, I start singing Charli XCX.

Yes please. And even if it's a working title, it's amazing.

There are a million bands that have this sound, but it's a sound that I really like. Nice track.

I added "Restart" to my 2017 playlist when it came out, but then had to take it out because it was so unimpressive.

I adore TPAB, but I also agree that I want a high banger percentage.

True, that's probably an exaggeration. It's just that, yeah, when comparing Golden Gate Park to hot asphalt, it's an easy choice. I agree though, I was at FYF last year too and the temperature was uncharacteristically manageable that weekend, luckily.

Really wish the money going toward my grad school was going toward this instead.

That guy definitely sounds like he was in that relationship for the right reasons.

March 21, 2017 on Album Of The Week: Mount Eerie A Crow Looked At Me
I have always been baffled at how "My Ding-A-Ling" became a #1 hit at a time when the pop charts were still pretty tame and tended toward prudishness. I seriously don't get it. It's not like it's that vague either.

Besides the singles, "First Caress" and "Shotgun" have emerged as early favorites.

That track sounds EXACTLY like it could be from the Divine Fits album.

That's one of the best assessments I've seen. It's made entirely of those weird songs and it sounds so good.

Real Estate is one of my favorite bands. Days and Atlas are amazing... chill, great vibes, a good sound, and killer songwriting. That said, I didn't LOVE this album on first listen, and it's usually pretty immediate for me when it comes to Real Estate. In Mind has a subtly different sound than their previous stuff, and while progression is good, there's something about the mixing and the way the guitars jangle that doesn't hit home as much as before. It's also hard to pick out jams as good as "Crime" or "Primitive" or "Had to Hear." I'm optimistic that it will grow on me though.

Wasn't planning on coming back to this post, but I clicked on it again on a whim. Glad I did.

"Inside Out" was the best song of 2014, IMO

I've always been hesitant to try out of embarrassment for messing up. So this is where I'll try.

That Hater album really is good. I've listened to it twice and definitely enjoyed it, but I think it went down too easy for me to really be conscious of it. I'll have to be more mindful of it on my next listen. As for that Jay Som album, I'm a huge fan. But I also wish that the elation I get when I hear "The Bus Song" was matched on some of the other tracks. That's probably not fair though, I shouldn't knock the album for having one really amazing song nestled in between other great ones. "The Bus Song" will probably be a top 10 track of the year for me.

If you're interested (and you probably have already tried, as you mentioned), but I would recommend the trio of albums he put out in 2012 for anyone looking for an entry point. Twins encapsulates everything he does well as a solo artist, including fast and slow, melodic and face-melting. Slaughterhouse is him as hard, sludgy rock bandleader. And Hair, the album the he did with White Fence, is his take on straight up '60s catchy-as-hell garage rock.

I agree that it's definitely 6/10. I'd put Port of Morrow at 7/10 though.

I love dancing to good pop music at weddings, but for years, I've really wanted to have a dance party built on good danceable indie. There are so many good candidates that would make people go crazy, but the problem is if people don't know the songs, they won't be into it. I did play "Electric Feel" and "Lisztomania" and "Fell in Love with a Girl" and a lot of Daft Punk at my wedding, and it was awesome.
