And then there's Beach Slang with their loud bash of feelings for those TEENAGERS. A little something for everyone.

September 23, 2016 on Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments
I was going through this Word doc on my computer where I have a bunch of thoughts, and came across one that I wrote maybe 3 months ago. It says "Post in SUD about Real Estate concert, new guitarist, new songs (keyboard heavy, guitars different), they just finished recording new album." So, 3 months late, that was my take on the Real Estate concert! But really, the new guitarist (Matt Mondanile's replacement) had a slightly different style, but it fit in nicely with the rest of the band. They said they're new album is complete, so it's interesting that we haven't heard anything yet about a release. The new songs they played seemed to feature keyboards a little more prominently, but they sounded awesome. Wish I could remember more details, but it's been a bit too long.

September 16, 2016 on Trying To Make Sense Of John Mayer’s Career, 10 Years After Continuum
When Continuum came out, I was in the process of transitioning from "strictly classic rock fan" to "okay, some newer stuff is cool too." I hadn't fully discovered "indie" (or whatever we want to call it) quite yet -- that wasn't until In Rainbows, Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga, and Sound of Silver the next year. But I got a copy of Continuum and played it A LOT that winter of 2006. And I still stand by it. Some really great songs on there. I also completely hate 95% of what he's done before or since (I did like "Clarity" though), but I dig Continuum.

Haha yeah, I was in this "band" with some friends in high school (i.e. we jammed together like 5 times and were mostly terrible). We were playing Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd songs, but the guitarist was also an unapologetic fan of John Mayer, for that very reason. The dude really can play the guitar though.

I also am not a huge fan of Here and Nowhere Else, but I think it's specifically because of the lack of Steve Albini. To my ears, Attack on Memory just sounds so much better that it's hard for met o have the same love for Here and Nowhere Else.

This song sounds like a good closer or penultimate track. Pumped.

Yeah, as easy as it is to make fun of Kanye here, his rant is pretty much right.

I do appreciate reading more about your back-and-forth opinion of Glover, Tom. I remember reading a short post you did on some video or song of his from a couple years ago, and contempt was oozing out of every word, which caught me off guard. I remember commenting on it, how odd it was to hear such contempt about a guy who, while questionable as a rapper (understandably so, even though I kind of like his Gambino stuff, but I get it), was still SUPER talented as far as comedy writing and acting. He's one of my favorite people because of 30 Rock and Community (also because he started writing for 30 Rock while he was still living in his college dorm -- very impressive). Anyway, I'm glad that to read more about your opinion of him, and to see that you also loved Troy on Community. That's honestly one of my favorite TV characters ever. "Kettle corn! That's a fun-time snack!"

I forgive you for digging up the Eagles for the umpteenth time because that gif with the circles you posted is blowing my mind.

Just looked up who "Jimmie Johnson" is and he's a NASCAR driver. No wonder he looked like such a bump on a log during the whole thing.

September 14, 2016 on Watch Donald Glover Attempt To Sing “Kiss From A Rose,” Improv A New Song With Reggie Watts On James Corden
Haha, I have been loudly overruled, and I don't blame you guys. I was exaggerating a bit too much. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE a lot of albums from 2014, most of which dansolo and black sheep boy already mentioned. The War on Drugs, Spoon, Real Estate, Mac DeMarco, Ty Segall, Pharrell, Ryan Adams, Freddie Gibbs, and Twin Peaks were all some of my favorites of the last few years. It just wasn't that deep of a year to my taste. Most years, I can rattle off a top 25 pretty easily, but while I liked a lot of albums that year, it just didn't have the constant spread of brilliant albums being released every month or even week like 2015 or 2016.

I still love 2015, but 2014 was straight trash. Some diamonds in the rough in 2014, but mostly rough.

The Men, I missed you! I like their tracks that have a bit more melody, but I'm excited to hear this in the context of a new album.

You're absolutely right about this one ushering in poptimism. I'm glad it did, because if I didn't catch that wave, there would be a lot of really good music that I would be ignoring right now. Also yeah, this album is awesome.

Strong associations with Homecoming as well. "Summer Love" is basically THE song of Homecoming 2006 for me.
